Examples of HuffPost ignoring Islamist hate and incitement against members of the LGBT community

.

Contents

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

(1.1) … and claims those who stand up to homophobic preachers are “heroes”…

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

(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”…

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

(2.1) After acknowledging that the Pulse massacre was perpetrated by an ISIS-inspired Islamist terrorist, HuffPost published a headline that claimed the attack had “nothing to do with religion,” and another that falsely claimed it was caused by Christian anti-gay bigotry

(2.2) HuffPost completley ignored the fact that two months before the Pulse massacre, a notoriously homophobic imam from England gave a sermon in Orlando, FL, where he claimed — on video — that Muslims must murder gays

(2.3) HuffPost completlely ignored the fact that another notoriously homophobic imam, from Syria, also preached in Central Florida, that Muslims must murder gays

(2.4) HuffPost ignored the fact that two other notoriously homophobic imams, from Iran, spoke in 2016 at mosques in Silicon Valley and England

(2.5) 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

(2.6) June 2017: HuffPost claimed 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

(2.7) 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

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

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

(2.10) June 2014-present day: HuffPost completely ignored the Islamist who murdered two gay men in Seattle, and another man in New Jersey, in the cause of jihad

(2.11) May 2014: HuffPost completely ignored the firebombing of a gay nightclub in Seattle, WA, by an Islamist who reportedly claimed that homosexuals “should be exterminated,” and was convicted of the crime

(3) Other relevant acts and omissions by HuffPost, re ignoring — and even enabling — 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

(3.2) March 2015 – present: HuffPost has ignored complaints by leaders in the LGBT community about the silence among leftists amid Muslim anti-gay violence and hate, and downplayed data supporting this reality

(3.3) October 2017: HuffPost conducted an interview with a white nationalist leader, and gave it top coverage — yet continues refusing to confront Islamist leaders who spread hate and incitement, or cover the terrorism that results

(3.4) October 2017: HuffPost gave top coverage to a single Tweet by a little-known conservative, that criticized several Muslim women for walking by the site of the NY massacre perpetrated by an ISIS-inspired Islamist terrorist — yet continues its blackout on explicit incitement to violence against Jews and the LGBT community, by imams on U.S. soil

(3.5) November 2017: HuffPost completely ignored a detailed report of Islamists’ systematic use of male-on-male rape, as a routine facet of war, and to terrorize populations into submission

(3.6) March 2016: HuffPost published several editorials by a Muslim activist who claimed Muslims on American soil should not soften or reverse their anti-homosexual bigotry

(3.7) Ongoing: Although HuffPost ignores all incitement by imams against the LGBT community, it has published 24 articles condemning one anti-gay Baptist American pastor alone


(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

From May 2010:

Cliff Kincaid’s International Gay-Bashing, by Terry Krepel, Huffington Post, May 14, 2010.

And from December 5, 2014:

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

On September 27, 2017, HuffPost published this splash headline, attacking newly-elected Sen. Roy Moore as a “bigot,” because of his claims that homosexuality should be outlawed:


(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) After acknowledging that the Pulse massacre was perpetrated by an ISIS-inspired Islamist terrorist, HuffPost published a headline that claimed the attack had “nothing to do with religion,” and another that falsely claimed it was caused by Christian anti-gay bigotry

Part 1: HuffPost initially reported, accurately, that the Pulse massacre was perpetrated by a Muslim, who said in recorded calls that he did it out of his allegiance to Islamist terror groups

Part 2: Twelve hours later, HuffPost published an editorial that falsely blamed Christianity for the massacre — and claimed “Jesus would have hung out at gay bars”

Part 3: On June 13, HuffPost published a headline that read, in part, that the massacre had “nothing to do with religion”


PART 1: HuffPost initially reported, accurately, that the Pulse massacre was perpetrated by a Muslim, who said in recorded calls that he did it out of his allegiance to Islamist terror groups

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.

At 9:28am on June 12, HuffPost published an article that identified the shooter as a radical Islamist, Omar Matteen. 

New Details Emerge About Deadliest Mass Shooting In U.S. History; “The one thing that we can say is that this is being treated as a terrorist investigation,” said President Barack Obama, by Sebastian Murdock, Andy Campbell, Roque Planas, and Willa Frej, Huffington Post, June 12, 2016, 9:28am EST. Excerpts:

The Pulse club, known as a lifeline for Orlando’s LGBTQ community, was packed early Sunday morning when gunman Omar Mateen stormed in, taking dozens of people hostage before dialing 911 from the venue’s bathroom. Mateen was fatally shot by authorities, who burst into the club after he threatened more lives and suggested he was wearing explosives. […]

“The one thing that we can say is that this is being treated as a terrorist investigation,” Obama said. “It appears that the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the internet.” […]

Mateen pledged solidarity with the Tsarnaev brothers, who were responsible for the Boston marathon bombing, and with a Florida man who died in a suicide bombing while fighting for the al Nusra front, a terror organization linked to al Qaeda that is battling the Syrian government.


PART 2: Twelve hours later, HuffPost published an editorial that falsely blamed Christianity for the massacre — and claimed “Jesus would have hung out at gay bars”

HuffPost published the following editorial at 10:00pm on June 12, 2016, 20 hours after the Pulse nightclub massacre, which began at 2:00am.

Jesus Would Have Hung Out At Gay Bars; “Christians, can we just drop the judgement already?,” by Kimberly Poovey, Huffington Post, June 12, 2016.

Why would HuffPost publish such a piece, shielding Islam from any association with the Pulse massacre, and instead assign the blame for it to Christian “judgment” regarding gays?

Only HuffPost’s editors can answer that question.  But wait — it gets far worse.


PART 3: On June 13, HuffPost published a headline that read, in part, that the massacre had “nothing to do with religion”

In defiance of all that it knew about the Pulse attack and Mateen’s stated motives, on June 13 (see date-stamp on lower right) HuffPost ran this splash headline, which explicitly said the 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.


(2.2) HuffPost completley ignored the fact that two months before the Pulse massacre, a notoriously homophobic imam from England gave a sermon in Orlando, FL, where he claimed — on video — that Muslims must murder gays

On June 12, 2017, PJ Media revealed that in April 2016, two months before the Pulse attack, a radical imam from England, Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar, had obtained a travel visa by the Obama State Deparatment to preach at a mosque in Orlando, where he claimed — 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:


UPDATE May 11, 2017: HuffPost grilled a Jewish political figure for his affiliations with a terrorist group — but has never done this to anyone affiliated with a 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.


(2.3) HuffPost completlely ignored the fact that another notoriously homophobic imam, from Syria, also preached in Central Florida, that Muslims must murder gays

Following up on Case Study 2.2, 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.

(2.4) HuffPost ignored the fact that two other notoriously homophobic imams, from Iran, 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:


(2.5) 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:

(2.6) June 2017: HuffPost claimed 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.


(2.7) 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.

(2.8) 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:

(2.9) 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:


(2.10) June 2014-present day: HuffPost completely ignored the Islamist who murdered two gay men in Seattle, and another man in New Jersey, in the cause of jihad

Ali Muhammad Brown

Between April 27 and June 25, 2014, radical Islamist Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, went on a murder spree in Seattle, WA, and West Orange, NJ, for the purpose of supporting ISIS through violent jihad.

In Skyway, WA (a suburb of Seattle), Brown shot Leroy Henderson, 30, to death as he sat in his vehicle.  On June 1, Brown posed as a gay man on the social media app Grinder, and solicited two gay men, Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, to meet him at a specific location that evening, then executed them with gunshots.  Then, on June 25, Brown encountered Brendan Tevlin, 19, at an intersection in NJ and shot him to death, without provocation.

Photos of some of Brown’s victims, courtesy of the Daily Mail (UK), starting with the gay men he lured out of a club, then executed:

Several articles about the arrest of Brown, at the time:

Seattle fugitive suspected of killing two gay men nabbed in New Jersey, by Nicole Hensley, NY Daily News, July 19, 2014.

How police ended terror campaign of suspect in murder of college student Brendan Tevlin, by Mark Di Ionno, NJ.com, August 10, 2014.

It was later discovered that Brown was a self-proclaimed Islamist terrorist, who had been on a Department of Homeland Security terrorist watch list at the time of his 2014 murder spree — which begs the question of how he was able to obtain firearms in the first place:

Muslim accused of killing four people in protest against US foreign policy was an ‘ISIS supporter on a one-man jihad’ who featured on a ‘terrorism watch list’, by Darren Boyle, Daily Mail, January 21, 2016.  Excerpt:

Brown told investigators he carried out the killings in retaliation for U.S. military action in the Middle East, and described himself as a strict Muslim, according to court documents.  In his journal, Brown said he was interested in receiving jihadist training, prosecutors said on Wednesday.


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored Brown’s murder spree

We begin our analysis with November 14, 2017 search using the following strings:

“Skyway, WA Leroy Henderson”: Returned zero results:

“Ahmed Said Dwone Anderson-Young”: Returned one result:

“Brendan Devlin West Orange NJ”: Returned zero results:

As noted above, HuffPost only published one article about the murders of Dwone Anderson-Young and Ahmed Said.  In this lone article, on June 9, 2014, note that HuffPost reported that Seattle authorities had arrested Matalepuna Malu for the crime; no mention is made of Brown:

Seattle’s Central District Community Mourns Loss of Two Young Men, Both Reportedly Gay, by Sarah Toce, Huffington Post, June 9, 2014.  Excerpt:

Hundreds of concerned Seattle citizens and elected officials gathered at the intersection of 29th and South King Street Thursday night to remember 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said. Among the supporters were Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, Seattle City Councilmember Sally Clark, the Seattle LGBT Commission, and Social Outreach Seattle, a local nonprofit whose tagline is “We are one community, working together.”

Anderson-Young and Said were shot after an evening on Capitol Hill, Seattle’s LGBT neighborhood. The two young men were both gay, according to both families and the Seattle Police Department at the vigil. Assistant Police Chief Carmen Best said investigators believed the two men were seen at popular gay bar R Place and at Hot Mama’s Pizza before the killings. […]

One alleged assailant, 26-year-old felon Matalepuna Malu, turned himself in to police following the killings. The Seattle Police Department is still searching for additional suspects and asks that the community alert them of any evidence that could lead to the possible capture and arrest of perpetrators involved.

On June 11, however, Seattle authorities had released Malu, and announced they were seeking Brown:

Man arrested in Seattle double homicide no longer a suspect, by Paige Cornwell, Seattle Times, June 11, 2014. Excerpt:

The man arrested in connection with a Central District double homicide on June 1 is no longer considered a suspect, KING 5 reported today.

Matalepuna Malu was arrested the day of the double homicide, when Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, were fatally shot near Anderson-Young’s house in the 500 block of 29th Avenue South in the early morning June 1. Malu was held without bail for a federal probation violation and an assault that police say was unrelated to the fatal shooting. […]

Police are still searching for Ali Muhammed Brown, 30, who was identified as a suspect from fingerprints found in Said’s car, which was driven away after the two men were shot, according to SPD.

At this point, as shown in the above searches, HuffPost went completely silent, apparently because the suspect was identified as being (a) black, and (b) having a Muslim name.

This is further evidenced by the fact that a November 14, 2017 search using HuffPost’s search engine of the string “Ali Muhammed Brown murder”, which returned no relevant results:


Other news about Ali Muhammad Brown’s jihadist terror attacks that HuffPost completely ignored

Murder suspect on personal jihad may have been groomed in Seattle barber shop, by Pamela K. Browne, FoxNews.com, November 4, 2014. Excerpt:

A man accused of killing four people in two states is believed to have ties to a disrupted terrorist cell, a terrorist training camp on U.S. soil, and federal investigations going back more than a decade, a Fox News investigation has revealed.

Details of Ali Muhammad Brown’s life in crime and connections to radical Islam prior to the killings of a college student in New Jersey and three other men in Washington state since April 2014 is under renewed scrutiny. After his arrest in July, Brown, 29, told detectives from both states that he “was engaged in jihad” and referred to the specific murder of one victim, Brendan Tevlin, as a “just kill.” […]

The JTTF [Joint Terrorism Task Force] investigation centered around “Crescent Cuts,” a small barber shop frequented by Brown. The shop was owned by Ruben Shumpert, a convicted drug dealer familiar to Gomez and other members of law enforcement.

“Ruben Shumpert was a prison convert to Islam,” noted Gomez. “He learned to cut hair in prison. Ruben would not only cut hair, but was attempting to indoctrinate a lot of the youth into radical forms of Islam by showing them videos about the 9/11 hijackers and Al Qaeda.”

Gomez added, “in 2004 with Ali Muhammad Brown, what we were looking at was the raising of funds for overseas material support of terrorism. He [Brown] was convicted of fraudulently producing checks, depositing them into accounts and spending the money basically.”

Curiously, while HuffPost completely ignored Brown’s targeting and attack of the gay men in Seattle, and this discovery of where, and by whom, he may have been radicalized, note how it devoted an entire story to ask where a handful of white nationalists may have been radicalized (see Case Study 3.1):

13 Times Apparent Trump Supporters Attacked, Harassed Or Plotted To Kill Muslims; Where were they radicalized?, by Christopher Mathias, National Reporter, The Huffington Post, November 22, 2016.

In January 2016, Brown was convicted for armed robbery, and sentenced to 36 years in prison:

Accused Brendan Tevlin killer gets lengthy prison term in armed robbery, by Bill Wichert, NJ.com, January 20, 2016.

Brown’s trial for the murder of Brendan Tevlin is ongoing; the latest at the time of this writing (November 14, 2017) is that his confession will be allowed at his trial:

Judge: Confession of Livingston teen’s accused killer allowed in court, by News12.com (NJ), November 8, 2017.  Excerpt:

The confession of a self-admitted Islamic State group sympathizer accused of killing an Essex County college student will be allowed in court, a superior court judge ruled Thursday.

Ali Muhammad Brown is accused of killing 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin, of Livingston, in June 2014. Brown allegedly told detectives that he waited for the right victim to kill on the night Tevlin was murdered.

Tevlin had just left a friend’s house and was sitting in his car at an intersection in West Orange when he was ambushed. Brown allegedly said that he killed Tevlin as punishment against the United States.

The judge said that because of Brown’s previous criminal history, he decided Brown was familiar with his rights to have an attorney during the police questioning.

Brown is facing terrorism charges related to the murder. He is also accused of murdering three people in Seattle prior to the Tevlin killing.

As noted above, HuffPost has completely ignored all of these stories.


(2.11) May 2014: HuffPost completely ignored the firebombing of a gay nightclub in Seattle, WA, by an Islamist who reportedly claimed that homosexuals “should be exterminated,” and was convicted of the crime

Musab Mohammed Masmari

On New Year’s Eve 2014, radical Islamist Musab Mohammed Masmari entered the popular Neighours gay nightclub in Seattle, WA, and set a fire, with the intention of murdering nearly 1,000 revelers in the club.  According to an eyewitness informant, Masmari’s motivation was his Islamist belief that Muslims must “exterminate” homosexuals.

Friend said gay club arson suspect “may be planning terrorist activity,” by Amy Clancy, KIRO7.com (WA), February 14, 2014.  Excerpt:

KIRO 7 has uncovered explosive new details in the case of the Capitol Hill arson at a popular gay nightclub.  Suspect Musab Masmari’s motive may have stemmed from his “distaste for homosexual people.” […]

The informant contacted the FBI soon after meeting Masmari because he was “concerned” that Masmari “may be planning some terrorist activity” because he spoke of “something he’s planning.” The informant told investigators that Masmari told him “he had obtained a rifle.”

The unidentified informant also said that, in the numerous conversations after their first meeting, Masmari often expressed a “distaste for homosexual people,” and that Masmari “opined that homosexuals should be exterminated.”

“Exterminate is a word you think of – you exterminate rodents, you exterminate roaches, not people,” said Shaun Knittel, spokesperson for Neighbours nightclub.

Knittel would like to see hate crime charges added on to the arson charge. “If that doesn’t fall into the law of a hate crime, I don’t know what does,” said Knittel.

On May 2, 2014, the Department of Justice announced that Masmari pleaded guilty:

Man Who Set Fire to Neighbours Nightclub on New Year’s Eve Pleads Guilty to Federal Arson Charge Faces Mandatory Minimum Five Year Prison Sentence, U.S. Department of Justice, May 2, 2014. Excerpt:

A former Bellevue resident who set fire to a Seattle nightclub just after midnight on New Year’s 2014, pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to arson, announced U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan.  MUSAB MOHAMMED MASMARI, 30, was originally charged in King County Superior Court, but pleaded guilty today to a criminal charge filed yesterday in federal court.  Under the terms of the plea agreement, both sides will recommend the mandatory minimum five years in prison when MASMARI is sentenced on July, 31, 2014.  U.S. District Judge Ricardo S. Martinez is not bound by the recommendation and can sentence MASMARI up to the maximum 20 years allowed by law.

“This defendant violated people’s right to gather safely: he put more than 700 lives at risk when he purposely started a fire at a crowded nightclub on New Year’s Eve,” said U.S. Attorney Durkan.  “Thankfully, the staff and patrons at Neighbours moved quickly to evacuate the club and extinguish the flames.  Federal prosecution ensures a five year mandatory minimum sentence – one that is more than double the potential sentence faced in state court.”

Then, on July 31, 2014, Masmar was sentenced to ten years in prison:

Neighbours nightclub arsonist sentenced to 10 years in prison, by Brett Cihon, Q13Fox.com (WA), July 31, 2014. Excerpt:

A man who tried to set an iconic gay nightclub on fire on New Year’s Eve has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for arson, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Musab Mohammed Masmari, 30, pleaded guilty in May to smuggling a gallon of gas into the popular Capitol Hill nightclub Neighbours and attempting to set the club on fire.

He was sentenced today in U.S. District Court to 10 years in prison.


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored the case against Masmari, and his motivations

A November 15, 2017 search using the string “Neighbours club arson” returned only one result:

Clicking on that headline led to this article — from two days after the incident, on January 2, 2014:

New Year’s Eve Fire At Seattle Gay Bar Neighbours Investigated As Arson, by Huffington Post, January 2, 2014. Excerpt:

A New Year’s Eve celebration at a crowded Seattle gay bar went terrifyingly awry after an unknown suspect allegedly set fire to the venue shortly after midnight.

As King 5 News is reporting, a staircase at Neighbours in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood was doused in gasoline and set aflame, bringing a popular New Year’s Eve drag show to an immediate halt. The fire was extinguished after nearly 700 revelers were evacuated to a nearby alley and no injuries were reported in the blaze, but Neighbours patrons and staff were nonetheless left shaken by the incident.

“It’s not just a bar or just a nightclub,” Social Outreach Seattle founder Shaun Knittel, who was at the club on Dec. 31, told KOMO News. “And whoever these jerks are there’s going to be a good number that makes sure they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Yet once a Muslim was named as the suspect, HuffPost completely discontinued reporting on the story — as its own search engine proves:

A November 15, 2017 search using the string “Musab Mohammed Masmari” returned zero results:

This decision to completely ignore the case once a Muslim was named as the suspect parallels exactly the dynamics of Case Study 2.10 on this page.  Specifically, although HuffPost initially reported that two gay men were murdered in Seattle, in June 2014, once a Muslim was named as the suspect, and his motives became known, HuffPost stopped all reporting on the crime – and the perpetrator’s conviction.


(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

(3.2) March 2015 – present: HuffPost has ignored repeated complaints by leaders in the LGBT community about the silence among leftists about Muslim anti-gay violence and hate, and downplayed data supporting this reality

(3.3) October 2017: HuffPost conducted an interview with a white nationalist leader, and gave it top coverage — yet continues refusing to confront Islamist leaders who spread hate and incitement, or cover the terrorism that results

(3.4) November 2017: HuffPost gave top coverage to a single Tweet by a little-known conservative, that criticized several Muslim women for walking by the site of the NY massacre perpetrated by an ISIS-inspired Islamist terrorist — yet continues its blackout on explicit incitement to violence against Jews and the LGBT community, by imams on U.S. soil


(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.


(3.2) March 2015 – present: HuffPost has ignored repeated complaints by leaders in the LGBT community about the silence among leftists about Muslim anti-gay violence and hate, and downplayed data supporting this reality

The following is a sampling of published materials featuring members of the LGBT community, speaking out against Muslim anti-gay violence and hate, all of which HuffPost has ignored:


Pew Research: Vast majority of Muslims believe homosexuality is “morally wrong,” in 33 of 36 nations surveyed, The World’s Muslims: Religion, Politics and Society, April 30, 2013.

HuffPost’s search engine proves it downplayed and whitewashed this story.

An October 10, 2017 search using the string “Pew The World’s Muslims: Religion, Politics and Society homosexuality is morally wrong” returned one result:

Worldwide Muslim Pew Survey Shows Majority Want Sharia But Disagree On What To Include: Survey, by Tom Heneghan, Huffington Post, April 30, 2017.

However, note:

(1) The title of the article did not mention anything about Muslim homophobia, as do all the articles that HuffPost publishes in which it attacks Christians’ anti-gay beliefs and statements, as shown in Section 1

(2) The wording of the article was whitewashed to conceal the actual wording from Pew:

Pew: “Muslims overwhelmingly say that homosexual behavior is morally wrong, including three-quarters or more in 33 of the 36 countries where the question was asked.”

HuffPost: “Three-quarters of respondents said abortion is morally wrong and 80 percent or more rejected homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.”

Student ‘forced to leave’ university after saying extremist Islamic groups kill LGBTI people; Alfred MacDonald pointed out to a friend that in some Muslim countries he could be killed for being LGBTI, by Charlie Mathers, Gay Star News, October 2, 2017. Excerpt:

Alfred MacDonald left University of Texas at San Antonio after feeling ‘difficult to stay motivated’.

He had made the comments during an out-of-class conversation with another graduate student. They had been discussing the ‘religious leanings of philosophy professors.’

He pointed out that in some Muslim countries, he could be executed for being bisexual.

A few days after the conversation, he was called in for a meeting with Dr Eve Browning. She is the Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Classics at the University of Texas at San Antonio. MacDonald studied here at the time.

This event took place in September 2016 but Alfred MacDonald only went public with it this summer.

Dr Eve Browning said if his behavior continued, he would be referred to the student conduct board. She said they would recommend dismissal.

A university head of department threatened a bisexual student with dismissal after he made a comment regarding LGBTI executions in Islamic countries.

HuffPost Special Report: When White Hate Comes To Town: Watch a disturbing HuffPost interview with white nationalist leader Richard Spencer the night before his speech at the University of Florida, by Christopher Mathias, Huffington Post, October 26, 2017. Excerpt:

NEAR GAINESVILLE Fla. — Richard Spencer, a leader of what he calls the “alt-right” and the man known to most as the “Nazi who got punched,” agreed to talk to HuffPost the night before his speech at the University of Florida in Gainesville last week.

He and his followers had rented a house in the Florida countryside for security reasons, they said. A hotel in Gainesville wasn’t an option.

After driving down dirt roads, HuffPost found Spencer standing in the dark, smoking a cigar and drinking Angel’s Envy bourbon out of a tall glass. Behind him, about a dozen of his followers filtered in and out of the house’s front door.

Contrast HuffPost’s devotion of resources, and prominent coverage, given to covering Richard Spencer’s hate speech, to how it consistently ignores the hate speech by Islamist leaders in North America

Section 2 in this page provides three detailed examples of how HuffPost completely ignored imams, notorious for their anti-gay hate speech and incitement, who spoke in Orlando mosques, including one who preached that Muslims must murder gays, in April 2016 — two months before the Pulse nightclub massacre.

SaveTheWest has also documented many other examples of how HuffPost ignores other Islamist leaders in North America who incite hate and violence, in some incidents, on video:

In the U.S.:

March 2017, Montreal, CA: Imam caught on video calling for Jews to be killed during sermon

July 2017, Davis, CA: Imam captured on video during sermon at Islamic center, calling for the murder of all Jews, everywhere

July 2017, Riverside, CA: Imam captured on video during sermon at an Islamic center — which was attended by jihadists who murdered 14 in San Bernadino in 2015 — calling on Muslims to wage jihad against Jews, to help Allah destroy them

In Canada:

February 2017, Montreal, CA: Imam caught on video vilifying and inciting violence against Jews

February 2017, Toronto, CA: Mosque apologizes for imam who openly preached that Jews should be murdered

February 2017, Toronto, CA: Ryerson University fires teaching assistant who incited violence against Jews during prayer


(3.4) November 2017: HuffPost gave top coverage to a single Tweet by a little-known conservative, that criticized several Muslim women for walking by the site of the NY massacre perpetrated by an ISIS-inspired Islamist terrorist — yet continues its blackout on explicit incitement to violence against Jews and the LGBT community, by imams on U.S. soil

On November 1, 2017, barely 24 hours after the worst Islamist terrorist attack on New York City since 9/11, HuffPost published this “news” story near the top of its front page:

Clicking on that headline brought the reader to this page:

Gigi Hadid Calls Out Islamophobic Twitter User After NYC Attack; The 22-year-old made a point to directly address the bigotry, by Cavan Sieczkowski, Huffington Post, November 1, 2017. Excerpt:

Gigi Hadid responded to a hateful Twitter user who attempted to use Tuesday’s attack in New York City as a reason to target Muslims.

Laura Loomer, whose bio describes her as an alt-right political activist and journalist who has previously worked for Canada’s Rebel Media and undercover watchdog group Project Veritas, tweeted a photo of two women wearing hijabs on Manhattan’s Greenwich Street, not far from the area where 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a pick-up truck down a bike path Tuesday, killing at least eight people and injuring 12 others.

Loomer wrote on Twitter that the women were “aimlessly walking around in hijabs,” later adding that “you think they’d have the decency” not to go near the area of the attack.

Hadid decided to call out Loomer’s bigotry in response.

That is the substantive entirety of this “news” story, which HuffPost decided was worthy of publication near the top of its front page.

Yet as documented in Sections 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and 3.3 on this page, HuffPost absolutely refuses to give any coverage whatsoever to more than a dozen incidents in which imams on U.S. soil claim — including on video — that Muslims must murder gays, and attack Jews, etc.


(3.5) November 2017: HuffPost completely ignored a detailed report of Islamists’ systematic use of male-on-male rape, as a routine facet of war, and to terrorize populations into submission

On November 3, 2017, the Guardian (UK) published an article that described a year-long investigative report into the use of male-on-male rape by Islamists in Libya and Tunisia:

Revealed: male rape used systematically in Libya as instrument of war: Videos and testimony expose brutal tactics used by several factions in fractured country, by Cécile Allegra in Tunis and Tripoli, The Guardian (UK), November 3, 2017.  Excerpt:

Male rape is being used systematically in Libya as an instrument of war and political domination by rival factions, according to multiple testimonies gathered by investigators.

Years of work by a Tunis-based group and witnessed by a journalist from Le Monde have produced harrowing reports from victims, and video footage showing men being sodomised by various objects, including rockets and broom handles.

In several instances, witnesses say a victim was thrown into a room with other prisoners, who were ordered to rape him or be killed.

The atrocity is being perpetrated to humiliate and neutralise opponents in the lawless, militia-dominated country. Male rape is such a taboo in Arab societies that the abused generally feel too damaged to rejoin political, military or civic life.

One man, Ahmed, told investigators he was detained for four years in a prison in Tomina, on the outskirts of Misrata.

“They separate you to subjugate you,” he said. “‘Subjugate the men’, that’s the expression that they use. So that you never hold your head up again. And they were filming everything with their phones.

“They take a broom and fix it on the wall. If you want to eat, you have to take off your pants, back on to the broom and not move off until the jailer sees blood flowing. Nobody can escape it.”

HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story

A November 5, 2017 search using the string “Guardian male male rape Libya” returned zero relevant results.


(3.6) March 2016: HuffPost published several editorials by a Muslim activist who claimed Muslims on American soil should not soften or reverse their anti-homosexual bigotry

On March 11, 2016, an independent blogger, “Bitter Queen,” published the following article:

“Unapologetic Muslim” Espouses Anti-Gay Views At Huffington Post, March 11, 2016. Excerpts:

Sajdah Nubee has a blog post at The Huffington Post about “What It Means to Me to be Unapologetically Muslim.” For Nubee that involves “comfortably embracing and sharing who we are, which includes firmly held beliefs” in public, and apparently her most cherished belief — after all, it’s the only belief she singles out — is that “candidly stated Islam does not condone homosexual relationships.” Indeed, with perverse pride over her hateful ignorance, Nubee then writes “I know that if I am able to express those parts of me even when widely unpopular, then I have achieved the power and freedom that comes with being unapologetically ME.”

Apparently Nubee is really bothered by “homosexual relations.” Last December she wrote another blog post at The Huffington Post decrying that “These Are Scary Times for Muslims and Not Just Because of Anti-Muslim Rhetoric.” Nubee bemoans these “scary times as we Muslims struggle to hold on to our beliefs and subsequent practice with pressures of what is known as ‘liberal’ culture and the desperation to change misperceptions,” and once again she singles out those homosexuals:

For example, this is the case for those who struggle to stand firm in the belief that Islam does not condone homosexuality. Unfortunately, it is counterproductive to abandon some of our beliefs as this does nothing to cement Muslims and our practice as a part of the American fabric.

If Nubee’s faith does not allow her to condone “homosexual relations,” then God bless her ignorant soul. However, why on God’s green earth does The Huffington Post allow Nubee a public platform for her anti-gay campaign particularly when there are unstable souls who justify jihad against the LGBTQ community on American soil based on such anachronistic teachings? I am not suggesting Nubee is calling for violence against gays — indeed, I presume she’s against it — but the unfortunate reality is that anti-gay beliefs can fuel anti-gay violence.

“Bitter Queen” then cites several recent examples of anti-LGBT violence perpetrated by Muslims, on U.S. soil — which, as documented in Case Studies 2.10 and 2.11, HuffPost completely ignored:

For example, in August 2014 Ali Muhammad Brown confessed that he executed a gay couple — Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young — after luring them through a hook-up app in Seattle, WA, and then murdered New Jersey teenager Brendan Tevlin all in order “to gain retribution for lives lost during U.S. military action in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq” as reported by James Queally for the Los Angeles Times.

Only months earlier in May 2014, Musab Mohammed Masmari pleaded guilty to federal charges that he torched a crowded gay club on New Year’s eve in Seattle, WA as reported by Mike Carter for the Seattle Times: “the federal takeover of the case . . . lends weight to allegations that Masmari’s crime is terrorism- or hate-motivated,” and “the case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd Greenberg, who supervises the Joint Terrorism Task Force.”


(3.7) Ongoing: Although HuffPost ignores all incitement by imams against the LGBT community, it has published 24 articles condemning one anti-gay Baptist American pastor alone

Pastor Steven Anderson is a notorious anti-LGBT Baptist in America.  A December 5, 2017 search using the string “Pastor Steven Anderson” at HuffPost revealed 24 articles in which it vehemently condemned his statements, including:
