(3.1) August 2017: HuffPost published items on its front page about identifying white nationalists, and how they were radicalized — yet never publishes anything like this about the Islamist anti-LGBT ideology


(1) Background: HuffPost positions itself as an LGBT-friendly publication…

For years, HuffPost has positioned itself as an LGBT-friendly publication. In addition to claiming that Sesame Street’s beloved “Big Bird” has a “secret gay history,” and posting pictures of gay intimacy on its front page, HuffPost even and published explicit photos of “gay orthodox priests”:

And it enables the most vile, vulgar gay commentaries to appear on its front page:


HuffPost attacks those who believe in traditional marriage

HuffPost has also published scorching “news” headlines against anyone who disagrees with its stances on LGBT issues, such as this one, from 2013, in which it lambasted the black evangelical Christian candidate for lieutenant governor of Virginia, whom it called a “bigot”:

HuffPost unlawfully published a pro-traditional marriage group’s confidential tax returns, and endangered its donors

In 2012, HuffPost published unlawfully-obtained segments of a tax return of a group that supports traditional marriage, which contained confidential donor information.  It then refused to take these materials down, after the group’s lawyer advised it, in writing, that publication of such materials is illegal.

Further, HuffPost knew, or should have known, that by unlawfully publishing donors’ names, addresses and contact information, it was exposing them them and their families to danger, especially given the radical left’s propensity for committing political violence.  (Notable: Less than a year later, a radical leftist terrorist attacked the Washington, DC office of a group that supports traditional marriage, “to kill as many as possible,” because he was told they are “anti-gay.”)


(1.1) HuffPost claimed that a little girl who stood up to a homophobic Christian preacher is “everyone’s new hero”

On July 2, 2015, HuffPost ran this original news story near the top of its front page:

Zea, The Ohio Girl Who Stood Up To A Homophobic Preacher, Is Everyone’s New Hero, by Ed Mazza, Huffington Post, July 1, 2015. Excerpt:

Sometimes, the loudest voice is the one that doesn’t say a word — just ask this little girl.

Zea, a 7-year-old first grader, stood firm in the face of hate over the weekend at a celebration of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. When a preacher began ranting at her through a microphone, little Zea quietly waved her rainbow flag and never backed down. […]

“Zea didn’t just flash the flag at that hatemonger, and bail. They went toe to toe, for several minutes, while he bellowed all of his fire and brimstone right in her face,” Bowling wrote on Facebook. “Grown man vs first grader. She told me afterward that she did feel scared. The one thing the people of ‪#‎comfest2015‬ never let her feel though? Alone.”


(1.2) … and eagerly attacks anyone who utters homophobic comments, or incitements to violence…

From HuffPost’s front page, July 9, 2014:

Fox News Pundit’s Insanely Homophobic Comments

And from December 5, 2014:

Pastor Who Calls For Executing Gays Is About To Get A Big Surprise


(1.3) … and even falsely alleged in a front page “news” story that a U.S. citizen who stands for traditional marriage “is an enemy of LGBTQ people, always has been, always will be”…

This “news” story appeared on HuffPost’s front page on May 25, 2017:

Betsy DeVos Is An Enemy Of LGBTQ People. Always Has Been. Always Will Be.

Note: This story was written by HuffPost’s Gay Voices editor, Michelangelo Signorile, who two weeks earlier explicitly incited radical leftists to hate, stalk and harass Republicans, and their families, even at their homes.


(2) …Except in the face of Islamist anti-LGBT incitement to violence, which it completely ignores or whitewashes

HuffPost’s willingness to attack anyone who disagrees with its stance on LBGT issues has one, glaring exception, though: it militantly ignores radical Islamists who preach and morally justify violence against gays, lesbians, etc. — and either ignores or whitewashes the carnage that results from these preachings, all over the world.  Here are three examples of HuffPost’s double-standard in this regard:


(2.1) HuffPost whitewashed the Pulse nightclub attack — then ignored the fact that two months earlier, an imam preached in Orlando, that Muslims must murder gays

On June 11, 2016, radical Islamist Omar Mateen attacked the gay Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, killing 49, and wounding 53.  He explicitly told local 911 dispatchers and the FBI on recorded calls that he was perpetrating this act because he is an Islamist, acting at the behest of ISIS, a fact that was reported by CNN on June 12.

HuffPost, however, refused to accept this reality, and instead ran splash headlines such as this one, on June 13 (see date-stamp on lower right), which explicitly said this attack had “nothing to do with religion”:

HuffPost maintained this official denial and whitewashing posture for the duration of the coverage of the Pulse attack.

It also completely ignored the fact that on June 12, PJ Media revealed that in April 2016, two months before the Pulse attack, a radical imam (Muslim preacher), Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar, was in Orlando, and preached at a mosque — on video — that devout Muslims must murder gays, “out of compassion”:

Imam Speaking in Orlando Said Gays Must Be Killed Out of ‘Compassion’, by Patrick Poole, PJ Media, June 12, 2016. Excerpts:

There is new information on the horrific terror attack in Orlando last night that has killed at least 50 and wounded more than 100 in the largest mass shooting in American history.

[An] imam speaking in Orlando in April [2016] said that killing gays according to Islamic law should be done “out of compassion”:

“Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence…We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”

The proof that HuffPost ignored this story: A January 11, 2017 search using HuffPost’s own search engine of the string “Florida imam Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar homosexuality” returned zero results.

This is especially curious given the fact that Christopher Matthias, the “journalist” whom HuffPost tasks frequently with covering alleged hate crimes against Muslims (many of which turn out to be hoaxes), asked in a November 2016 headline, “Where were they radicalized?,” about the perpetrators of such crimes:

In contrast, HuffPost has a de facto policy of ignoring actual hate crimes against Jews and others in groups it considers worthless, and never asking where were radicalized — especially when the proven perpetrators are Muslims or other minorities (examples 1, 2, 3).

Further, HuffPost completely ignored the fact that according to one of its regular sources, NY Magazine, Mateen :

[Mateen] apparently enrolled in the “Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary,” an online course operated by an imam named Abu Taubuh, also known as Marcus Robertson, who preaches anti-gay sermons. 

HuffPost’s own search engine proves that it ignored this fact.  A March 5, 2017 search using the string “Abu Taubuh” returned no results:


May 11, 2017 update: HuffPost grills Jewish political figure for his affiliations with a terrorist group — but has never done this to anyone affiliated with any Islamist terrorist group or attack on U.S. soil

On May 11, 2017, HuffPost published the following story on its front page:

This Politician Keeps Saying Linda Sarsour Supports Terror. But He Was In A Terror Group; Dov Hikind told HuffPost he’s “proud” of his time with the Jewish Defense League, and doesn’t deny once tossing a smoke bomb into a U.N. office, by Christopher Mathias, Huffington Post, May 11, 2017.

The reporter, Christopher Matthias, claims he generated and submitted a series of questions to the subject of this article, Dov Hikind, that probe his history with the JDL, its affiliations and terrorist attacks, etc.:

“Because there has been little public accounting of Hikind’s role in the organization, HuffPost sent the assemblyman a detailed list of questions this week about his relationship to the JDL.”

Curiously, neither Matthias nor anyone at HuffPost has ever publicly submitted such a list to any American or refugee that is affiliated with any Islamist terrorist group.  Most notably, HuffPost never even publicized the fact that two months before the Pulse nightclub massacre, a mosque in Orlando hosted a sermon by a notorious imam from Syria, who claimed that devout Muslims must murder homosexuals “out of compassion.”  Nor has it published anything that gives credibility to Linda Sarsour’s critics, such as her Tweet in which she threatened to beat up women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and “take her vagina away”:

Instead, HuffPost has only published glowing articles about Sarsour, that could easily be confused for the wares of a public relations agency.


(2.2) HuffPost ignored news that another homophobic imam, from Syria, had obtained a visa from the State Department to lecture in Central Florida, who preaches that Muslims must murder gays

In this case, Dr. Mohammed Al-Nabulsi, a radical imam who had been captured on video claiming that gays must be put to death, had obtained State Department approval to travel through the U.S., preaching his message of hate and intolerance, particularly as it pertains to gays. A local Florida TV station broke this news on January 6, 2017:

Mosques to host events supporting Syrian refugees, by WFTV.com (FL),

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. Several mosques in Central Florida are getting ready to host events supporting Syrian refugees.

Channel 9’s Field Sutton found out the Muslim scholar who will be speaking at one of the events has a history of making anti-gay and anti-Jewish remarks.

Leaders of the Islamic Society of Central Florida told Eyewitness News that they were unaware of Dr. Mohammed Al-Nabulsi’s history, but they also said they’re firmly committed to restricting him to the topic of rebuilding war-torn Syria.

Al-Nabulsi has said in videos posted online that “homosexuality leads to the destruction of the homosexual. That is why, brothers, homosexuality carries the death penalty.”

The proof that HuffPost ignored this story: A January 11, 2017 search using HuffPost’s own search engine of the string “Florida Syria imam Mohammed Al-Nabulsi homosexuality” returned zero results.

(2.3) HuffPost ignored two homophobic imams from Iran, known for preaching that Muslims must murder gays, who spoke in 2016 at mosques in Silicon Valley and England

On January 12, 2017, the American Center for Democracy, a research and watchdog nonprofit, posted an article that documented the fact that two homophobic imams are to lecture at several mosques in Silicon Valley, in affiliation with the Shia Association of the Bay Area (SABA):

Silicon Valley Bishop’s “solidarity” with Muslims advocating Death to Gays, by Lee Kaplan, American Center for Democracy, January 12, 2017. Excerpt:

Hamza Sodagar and Farrokh Sekaleshfar, two Khomeinist “superstar mullahs” on the Islamist lecture circuit, are frequent speakers at Saba Islamic Center where Saba Academy’s curriculum is taught. Alarmingly, both mullahs justify the execution of gays under Sharia law. […]

Sodagar has spoken at schools as far away as Canada’s York University, and even in the UK, but he appeared on a regular basis at Saba where he lectured about Sharia-compliant methods of executing homosexuals:

“For homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One, the easiest one, maybe, is chop their head off, stop their heart. Two, burn them to death. Three, throw them off a cliff. Four, tear down a wall upon them. Five, a combination of these things.”

Articles exposing these imams, particularly Sodagar, were published earlier in 2016, including in a prominent gay website, Queerty:

Islamic Preacher Lecturing In London Seen Outlining Ways To Kill Gay People, by Jeff Taylor, Queerty.com, October 7, 2016.

Muslim preacher who calls for beheading & burning of homosexuals to give speech in London; A radcial Islamic preacher who detailed the “five ways” kill gay people is delivering a string of speeches at a venue in London, by Charlie Bayliss, The Express (UK), October 5, 2016.

Yet HuffPost’s own search engine proves it has completely ignored Imam Sodagar and his homophobic incitement preachings.  A January 13, 2017 search at HuffPost of the string “Hamza Sodagar” returned zero results:


(2.4) May 2017, Orlando, FL: HuffPost completely ignored a tip that still another notorious, violence-inciting, homophobic imam was scheduled to speak at an Orlando mosque

On May 1, 2017, Florida activist Suzanne Shattuck published an advisory that another violence-inciting imam was scheduled to speak at an Orlando mosque:

Another “Radical” Islamic Cleric Coming To Orlando May 12-14, by Suzanne Shattuck, May 1, 2017. Excerpt:

Radicalized Islamic Cleric Kamal El-Mekki’s appearance in Central Florida is generating real concern as he publicly advocates religiously sanctioned murder.  Kamal El-Mekki’s incitement to violence hate speech must be condemned by the media, local Islamic leaders, and the non-Muslim clergy.

Kamal El-Mekki on video tape, stated the following:

1. Killing of Muslims who leave Islam (apostates) is sanctioned.

2. Killing of adulterers is sanctioned (but advises clerics not to discuss it so much).

3. Killing & Beheading of criminals is necessary for a safe society.

4. Killing drug dealers in America would be a good practice.

5. Hate for the Non-Muslim. “As for the kuffar (derogatory name for non-Muslims), “the first thing is, why would you want to follow a people whom you know and you’re sure that their end will be in the hellfire?”

6. Offensive statements regarding the homosexual lifestyle.

7. Polygamy is an acceptable practice

Shattuck’s advisory specified that El-Mekki would be speaking at the Ibn Seena Academy in Orlando from May 12-14.


SaveTheWest is aware that a concerned individual emailed the following advisory about this upcoming sermon and the background of Orlando mosques hosting violence-inciting imams, on May 2 to the address published by HuffPost’s new executive editor, on April 25, 2017, for story tips (see bottom of page):

FYI another imam who advocates that Muslims should murder gays will be speaking at a mosque in Orlando soon:

(2.5) June 2017: HuffPost claims shariah law is no threat to the U.S. Constitution, and those who assert it is are “haters” — while completely ignoring shariah’s role in causing the Pulse nightclub massacre, again

On June 10, 2017, HuffPost blasted the groups that held nationwide demonstrations against shariah law, excoriating them as “haters” in a splash front-page headline:

An excerpt from this “news” story:

MARCH FOR HATE, by Christopher Mathias, Huffington Post, June 10, 2017 (page archived here).

The “March Against Sharia” rallies are set to place on Saturday in 29 cities across 21 states, and are being organized by Act for America, the nation’s largest anti-Muslim hate group. Act for America has billed this weekend’s events as some kind of noble stand against “atrocities” it attributes ― wrongly ― to sharia. […]

Act for America has also long pushed the conspiracy theory that sharia law ― the deeply misunderstood legal or philosophical code of Islam, interpreted differently by Muslims across the world ― poses a threat to the U.S. Constitution. (It does not.)

Just below that “news” story, however, appeared this, near the top of the front page:

Here is the link to this “news” story:

A YEAR SINCE ORLANDO’S UNSPEAKABLE TRAGEDY, by James Michael Nichols, Huffington Post, June 10, 2017 (archive link here).

As before, HuffPost makes no mention of the fact that a Muslim, Omar Mateen, perpetrated the attack, that it was incited by shariah law, as articulated by imams on three separate occasions in Orlando, including a sermon given two months before he launched the attack.

If you do a search on the storypage for the words “Muslim,” “Islam,” “shariah,” and “ISIS,” here are the results (with screencaps to prove it; check this archived version of the story):

“Muslim”: 0 instances (screencap)

“shariah”: 0 instances (screencap)

“Islam”: 1 instance, as part of “Islamophobia (screencap)

“ISIS”: 1 instance, as part of “crisis” (screencap)

Once again, HuffPost decided to completely ignore the role of Islam and shariah in triggering and justifying the Orlando massacre, and instead, attacked those who are opposed to shariah.  Including devout Sunni Muslim Zuhdi Jasser, MD, president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.  Here is a documentary hosted by Dr. Jasser, “The Third Jihad,” that addresses the roots of shariah law, and what it would mean if fully implemented in Western societies:

Curiously, HuffPost never features Dr. Jasser in any of its articles.


(2.6) July 2017, Oakland, CA: HuffPost completely ignored the FBI arrest of a militant Islamist who claimed he was going to murder 10,000 or more gays and lesbians with mass poisoning

I-TEAM EXCLUSIVE: Oakland man allegedly planned Bay Area terror attacks, by Dan Noyes, ABC7News.com, July 24, 2017. Excerpt:

Investigators say a West Oakland man told an undercover agent he wanted to “redefine terror” and kill 10,000 people in support of the terror group ISIS.

In an exclusive interview with the head of the San Francisco FBI and from federal court recordings obtained by the ABC7 I-Team, new details are emerging in the government’s terror case against Amer Sinan Alhaggagi. […]

On Monday, FBI Special Agent in Charge John Bennett emphatically reiterated the government’s position in an exclusive interview, telling ABC7’s Dan Noyes, “This was a case of grave importance for us. This was a clear and present danger for public safety here in the Bay Area.” […]

“This was very serious, this was a top priority for this office, for a good part of a year,” he told Dan Noyes.

In that December 2016 court hearing, prosecutors revealed Alhaggagi talked about plans to sell cocaine laced with rat poison in Bay Area nightclubs. The undercover agent says he was looking for information on the exact mixture of strychnine and cocaine to use in that scheme. He showed the agent an ISIS bomb-making manual he downloaded on a computer and he sent the agent photographs of guns he said he obtained.

“He then told confidential source number one, ‘I live close to San Francisco, that’s like the gay capital of the world. I’m going to handle them right, LOL,’ meaning laughing out loud. ‘I’m going to place a bomb in a gay club, Wallah or by God, I’m going to tear up the city.’ And I quote, ‘The whole Bay Area is going to be up in flames,'” the federal prosecutor explained to Judge Westmore in his argument to have Alhaggagi detained.

(2.7) August 2016, Istanbul, Turkey (belated discovery): HuffPost completely ignored the discovery of a beheaded, mutilated gay Syrian refugee

Background: We ordinarily wouldn’t include hate crimes and incitement against the LGBT community that occurred outside the U.S.  But given that HuffPost (a) Gives top coverage to alleged hate crimes perpetrated against Muslims in the U.S., W. Europe and Israel, but (b) Ignores the proliferation of horrific “honor crime” attacks perpetrated by fundamentalist Muslims in Western societies on females who violate the tenets of shariah law, it was notable that on June 30, 2017, HuffPost published this story near the top of its front page, regarding such an attack on two Muslim females, in London, England:
The only difference between the above story, and all the others that HuffPost ignores, is the fact that the alleged perpetrator was a white male.  This was presumably what caused HuffPost to give it top coverage on its front page, because it furthers its narrative, that white males are the #1 terror threat facing America.

Given these facts, upon belatedly discovering the following story, from 2016, we decided it was worth including here, because it once again illustrates the depths to which HuffPost will go to avoid informing its readers of the #1 threat to the LGBT community in the world: fundamentalist Islam.


The following story, about a gay man known only as “Wisam,” was published by CNN on August 5, 2016:

Gay Syrian refugee found beheaded, mutilated in Turkey, by Ben Westcott and Arwa Damon, CNN, August 5, 2016.  Excerpt:

A gay refugee living in Turkey has been found murdered, his body so mutilated his friends could only identify him by his pants, a local rights group said. Wisam, who arrived in Istanbul about a year ago after fleeing Syria, went missing on July 23 and was found two days later in the city’s Yenikapi district.

He previously had been threatened, kidnapped and raped, according to Kaos Gay and Lesbian Cultural Research and Solidarity Association (KAOS GL), a Turkey-based rights group. CNN is not using the victim’s last name out of concern for his family’s safety.

“We identified him from his pants… They had cut (him) so violently. So violent that two knives had broken inside him. They had beheaded him. His upper body was beyond recognition,” said one friend, whom CNN is not naming for safety reasons.

“If you saw his body, if you even saw a picture of it, you would faint,” said another friend, who asked CNN to identify him as Mohammed out of fear for his safety. “It was as if he was attacked by a beast.” Wisam had been stabbed 20 times, his organs were removed and he had been beheaded, according to Alex Benjamin, who works for an organization that aims to help LGBT refugees get expedited asylum.

“Police are doing nothing,” Benjamin said, “because he is Syrian and because he is gay.”

Soon after, UPI produced this 1-minute video report, which revealed the victim’s name as Muhammad Wisam Sankari:

HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story, and the tip provided to it

An August 7, 2017 search at HuffPost using the string “Muhammad Wisam Sankari beheaded mutilated Turkey” returned zero results:

Contrast HuffPost’s decision to completely ignore this story, to its decision give top coverage to original, sympathetic, graphic stories it has developed about other “victims,” including:

“Patrick” an elderly wombat in Australia, who died a virgin:A “homesick American jihadi,” in Somalia, to whom it gave five straight days of top coverage:

(2.8) August 2017: HuffPost completely ignored the largest Islamist group in America kicking out members of the LGBT community from their annual conference

This was posted on August 14, 2017:

Silence as ISNA Kicks Out Gay Muslims From Conference, by Ryan Mauro, Clarion Project, August 14, 2017.  Excerpt:

If you go into a bomb shelter, close the door and put on headphones, you’ll hear the sound of progressives reacting to how a top Muslim-American group discriminated against pro-LGBT Muslims: Total silence.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) shockingly kicked out a pro-LGBT Muslim group named Muslims for Progressive Values from its table at an event in early July. It is now mid-August and not a word about it has been heard.

What should be even more embarrassing for supporters of gay rights is that the Muslim group’s table was jointly reserved by Muslims for Progressive Values and Human Rights Campaign. The latter group describes itself as “the largest LGBT equality-rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States” with over one million members and supporters.

This isn’t a small incident at a small event with little-known players. All the elements are there for a major story and progressive rallying cry.

The most powerful Muslim-American organization—at the biggest Muslim-American event of the year with over 15,000 attendees—kicked out pro-gay Muslims sharing a table with the largest LGBT advocacy group in the country.

Where are the progressive condemnations, petitions and protesters?


HuffPost buried and whitewashed this exclusion.

Given the facts contained on this page, particularly in Section 1, it is clear that had this been done by a Christian or Jewish conference, HuffPost would have created a front-page headline that highlighted this fact.  Instead, there was not a single headline about this incident.

HuffPost’s’ search engine proves that using the search string “Islamic Society of North America Muslims for Progressive Values” produces only one relevant result — which not only has nothing to do with this incident, it would lead the casual reader to arrive at a conclusion that is exactly the opposite of the reality:

American Muslims Are Now More Accepting Of Homosexuality Than White Evangelicals, by Carol Kuruvilla, Huffington Post, August 1, 2017.

Note that one must go all the way to the bottom of the article to discover what happened at ISNA’s conference:


(3) Other relevant acts and omissions by HuffPost, re ignoring Islamist hate and incitement against members of the LGBT community

(3.1) August 2017: HuffPost published items on its front page about identifying white nationalists, and how they were radicalized — yet never publishes anything like this about the Islamist anti-LGBT ideology


(3.1) August 2017: HuffPost published items on its front page about identifying white nationalists, and how they were radicalized — yet never publishes anything like this about the Islamist anti-LGBT ideology

On August 14, 2017, after the Charlottesville, VA violent clashes between white supremacists and radical leftist anarchists, HuffPost published two stories on its front page that addressed only the former’s ideology, and radicalization:

How To Spot A White Nationalist

This Is How White Supremacists Get Radicalized

Curiously, HuffPost has never, to our knowledge, published a story (on its front page, or anywhere else) that mirrors the thrust of these articles, but about the Islamist threat to the LGBT community.

Given the contents of Section 2 on this page, however, this is not an aberration, but rather, is consistent with its willingness to do anything to shield Islamists from being held to account for their anti-LGBT hate and incitement to violence.
