350 companies stopped advertising at Huffington Post after being urged to pull off the website because it fundraises for CAIR and publishes articles blaming Islamophobia for worldwide conflict with Muslims.

 

  Florida Family Association will continue to urge companies to stop advertising as long as Huffingtonpost.com publishes erroneous Islamophobic propaganda.

Three hundred fifty (350) out of three hundred seventy two (372) companies (94%) stopped advertising on Huffingtonpost.com after being encouraged to pull off the website because it fundraises for CAIR and publishes numerous erroneous Islamophobia propaganda articles.  

The following chart shows the progress of this campaign.  The percentage of companies that have stopped advertising has increased for the last five months.  The number of companies that continue to advertise has decreased for the last five months.  Florida Family Association has actually cut the number of companies continuing to advertise by more than in half during the last five months.

Huffington Post has published numerous articles that promote Islamist propaganda.  Huffington Post articles have defended the Muslim Brotherhood, fundraised for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), blamed Christian Islamophobia for worldwide conflict with Muslims, promoted an anti-Semitic blog, encouraged Islamist demagoguery, and promoted other Islamist propaganda.  Twelve examples of Islamist propaganda articles are provided at the end of this article. 

Huffington Post propaganda mocks, belittles and blames people who are concerned about radical Islam in a manner that impairs the willingness of some people to speak up for public safety.  Their propaganda erroneously blames alleged Islamophobia for the worldwide conflict between Muslims and infidels.  Florida Family Association started sending emails in April 2016 to encourage the CEO and Marketing Vice President of companies that advertise at Huffingtonpost.com to stop supporting the progressive website's offensive bias with their advertising dollars. 

Why is it important to urge companies to stop advertising at Huffingtonpost.com?

•    Islamophobia propaganda is the top tool Islamists use to influence Americans to ignore advancement of Sharia doctrine in the United States.  Unfortunately, it intimidates people to the point of stifling free speech in a manner that hurts public safety.  Labeling people or groups as Islamophobes is intended to influence them to stop criticizing Islam.   Fear of being branded an Islamophobe played a role in suppressing communications that may have had different results for the lives of 63 people in San Bernardino and Orlando.
•    One article wrongfully places the blame on Christians and Jews in a manner that creates contempt for Christianity and Judaism.
•   The reports published by the news media do influence the political positions of the public.  Huffingtonpost.com is one of the largest liberal progressive media outlets in America. 
•    Florida Family Association’s opposition campaign educates hundreds of officials at American companies about the harm caused by erroneous Islamophobia propaganda.  The thousands of emails that company officials receive reveal that there are many Americans who find Islamophobia propaganda deceitful, harmful and offensive.

The Florida Family Association office has communicated with three hundred seventy two (372) companies since April 2016 regarding their advertising on Huffingtonpost.com as of February 28, 2017.   

•    A total of three hundred fifty (350) companies stopped advertising.  Ninety four percent (94%) of the companies did not advertise again after receiving emails from the Florida Family Association office or after receiving emails from thousands of people in response to Florida Family Association’s online campaigns.  The names of the Companies that Have Not Advertised Again and Companies that Continue to Advertise are listed at the bottom of this article.
•   Three hundred thirty two (332) companies stopped advertising after receiving communications from the Florida Family Association office.
•   Eighteen (18) companies stopped advertising after being profiled in an online campaign at Floridafamily.org.
•   Twenty two (22) companies continued to advertise.    

New recent advertisers are not included in the lists until sufficient time is allowed to determine if the company will continue to advertise.  Numerous companies stopped advertising for several weeks after receiving email communications from the Florida Family Association office but later resumed advertising.  It appears that some of these companies believe that Florida Family Association will not continue to pursue this issue.  However, as long as Huffingtonpost.com keeps the articles published on their web site Florida Family Association will continue to urge companies to stop advertising.

Examples of Huffington Post articles.

The Huffington Post has published numerous articles that promote Islamist propaganda.  Huffington Post articles have defended the Muslim Brotherhood, fundraised for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), blamed Christian Islamophobia for worldwide conflict with Muslims, promoted an anti-Semitic blog, encouraged Islamist demagoguery, and promoted other Islamist propaganda.  Eleven examples of Islamist propaganda articles are provided below.

FIRST EXAMPLE:  Huffingtonpost.com published an article on November 22, 2016 that encouraged people to financially support the Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood linked Council on American Islamic Relations.  “With Trump threatening a national Muslim Registry and hate crimes against minority groups massively increasing in the days after the election, it’s critically important to support organizations like CAIR.”

SECOND EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 13, 2017 titled Ted Cruz vs. The Muslim Brotherhood Boogeyman that appears to defend the Muslim Brotherhood.  "How the senator’s new bill could destroy American Muslim groups and lead to the “wanton violation” of civil rights.  A bill introduced this week by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) calls on the U.S. State Department to determine whether the Muslim Brotherhood is a foreign terrorist organization. Advocates for American Muslims suspect a darker purpose ― to smear and potentially prosecute American Muslim advocacy groups, a move that could prove disastrous for the civil rights of Muslims in this country."

It is most troubling to see American media defending the Muslim Brotherhood.

THIRD EXAMPLE:  Israel National News published an article on January 13, 2017 titled Huffington Post refuses to remove anti-Semitic blog.  "Huffington Post Arabi, Arabic version of left-wing media outlet, retains overtly anti-Semitic blog decrying Jews as 'murderers of Mohammed'."

The Huffington Post demonstrates bias against Israel.

FOURTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 13, 2017 titled Katy Perry PSA For American Muslims Asks ‘Is History Repeating Itself?’  "The video has a surprising (and haunting) twist.  Confronted with an increase in hate crimes and Islamophobic rhetoric, American Muslims have been organizing, educating and speaking out.  Now, an unexpected and somewhat controversial ally is bringing awareness to the fight that America’s Muslims are facing over the next four years ― pop star Katy Perry."

This propaganda diminishes the threat of radical Islam and grossly distorts the approach needed to address it.  

FIFTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published a report on October 12, 2016 titled Islamophobia Just Drove This Boy And His Family Out Of America.  (The Huffington Post changed this article after being exposed for publishing erroneous news.)  However, The News & Observer published a news report on October 14, 2016 titled Investigators find no evidence Muslim child was attacked on school bus.  “At this time, nothing has been found, and no police report has been filed,” Cary Town Manager Sean R. 

SIXTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on October 6, 2016 that is headlined:  Let’s Talk About All That Anti-Muslim Garbage In Your Newsfeeds.  "And it’s not just your crazy ― but lovable ― uncle sharing these memes. It’s your school board chairwoman, your town council member, your postal worker and your state’s agricultural commissioner.  These memes would have you believe that the Quran compels Muslims to violence, that Muslims want to take over the U.S. and implement (gasp!) Sharia, that Islam hates women, and that all Arabs are Muslim and all Muslims are Arab.  In short, these posts are garbage."

Ignoring the fact that the Quran, including the above passages, are taught in mosques across America does not reduce the impact on the minds of their followers.

SEVENTH EXAMPLE The Huffington Post published an article on Apri1 26, 2016 titled Did Jesus Predict Muhammad? A Biblical Portal Between Christianity and Islam.  The article states in part:  "The time has come for Christians and Muslims to make peace between our communities. Our planet simply cannot afford another century of misunderstanding and violence between these two communities.  In an earlier blog on the Huffington Post about the problem of Christian Islamophobia, I argue that Christians have the opportunity to transform the way we see Islam and Muslims by accepting Muhammad as “Spirit of Truth.” However, the majority of Christians still maintain a fundamentally Islamophobic position on Muhammad. So I believe that the time has come for peacemaking Christians to contradict this position directly. Changing our view of Muhammad—so that we recognize him as a true prophet rather than discredit him as a false prophet—would effectively inoculate Christians against Islamophobia and would help to establish a new paradigm of cooperative Christian-Muslim relations."

The Huffington Post article: Erroneously blames alleged Christian Islamophobia for the worldwide conflict between Muslims and infidels;  Dangerously perverts the Holy Scriptures of the Bible to falsely elevate Muhammad to a Judaic Christian status; and  Tragically ignores the millions of Muslims around the world who support the killing of hundreds of thousands of Christians.  The Religionofpeace.com provides a detailed report of Muslims killing Christians.  Yet, the Huffington Post article has the audacity to blame Islamophobic Christians for the worldwide conflict between Muslims and Infidels.

EIGHTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published an article on July 21, 2014 titled 6 Convincing Reasons Debunking the Myth of Islam Promoting Hatred of Jews and Christians.  All a person has to do is to read some of the quotes from the Quran posted in the above Second Example to realize this article is defending the indefensible.  This subjective narrative demonstrates clear bias for Islamism.

NINTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on December 16, 2016 titled Muslim Civil Rights Group Honors Jewish Counterpart With Award.  The Investigative Project on Terrorism published the following about this HuffPost propaganda.  "So the first Jewish group that CAIR honors is a venomously anti-Israel one that retails propaganda against the Jewish state and ignores the genocidal anti-Semitism of its foes.  The “Defender of Liberty” award that CAIR gave to Jewish Voice for Peace ought to be regarded as a mark of shame for an organization which claims to represent Jews and work within the Jewish tradition while advocating for policies that would expose the Jews of Israel to greater danger, greater poverty, and greater international opprobrium.  CAIR, JVP, and the Huffington Post, all such staunch promoters of Islamist terrorist front groups, deserve one other."

TENTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 26, 2017 titled “The American Dream Or The American Nightmare?”  The article states in part:  “This is a call to your conscience. I am writing about the ‘Muslim ban,’ as people are calling it.  The ‘Muslim ban’ is not about security. This is about Islamophobia, plain and simple.”  Only fake news promoters are calling it a Muslim ban because that is not what President Trump’s executive order states.  More Islamist propaganda.  

ELEVENTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 25, 2017 titled “Don’t Deride Women Marchers — Help Them Become More Radical.”  The article headlines a photo of a women’s march protestor with a sign of a women wearing a Hijab that is made from an American flag.   This is a tragic display of hypocrisy having the Hijab, a sign of oppression and devalued women’s rights, made out of an American flag, which stands for freedom and liberty for all including women oppressed under Sharia law in America. 

TWELFTH EXAMPLE The Huffington Post published an article on January 31, 2017 titled:  "Organizing Against Islamophobia: Reflection And Analysis To Strengthen Our Work."  The article states in part:  "Muslim communities and those being targeted by the relentless, ongoing Islamophobic, racist, and xenophobic assaults coming from so many directions are organizing with great integrity, strength, and intention. We know these assaults are not new, but the moment calls for all sorts of resistance."

The Huffington Post Arabic edition is run by two hardline Islamists according to a report published by Breitbart.  Anas Fouda, an Egyptian native now living in Muslim Brotherhood-friendly Turkey, is the new editor-in-chief of HuffPost Arabi. He was arrested by UAE authorities in 2013 after being charged with being a leader in the Islamist group, according to a NOW Lebanon, which linked to an article in which Fouda allegedly admitted that he has been a member of the Brotherhood since 1988. Prior to becoming the Huffington Post Arabic editor, Fouda was an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic, a network accused of having rabidly pro-Brotherhood biases.  The Huffington Post’s Arabic venture was created after the left-wing news network teamed up with Integral Media Strategies, an organization led by Wadah Khanfar, who was previously employed as Al Jazeera Arabic’s managing director. Khanfar, like Fouda, has been arrested by an Arab government (Jordan) on suspicion that he was a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood terror group. Additionally, Zvi Mazel, the former Israeli Ambassador to Egypt, has in the past noted with certainty that “Wadah Khanfar is a Muslim Brother,” and that the former Al Jazeera chief turned the network into a “weapon in the service of” the Muslim Brotherhood.
