1,306 companies stopped advertising at Huffingtonpost.com after being urged to pull off the website because it supports the Islamist political agenda and spews vitriolic propaganda that inspires leftist hate.

Report date as of July 31, 2020

One thousand three hundred six (1,306) out of one thousand three hundred thirty three (1,333) companies (98%) stopped advertising on Huffingtonpost.com after being encouraged to pull off the website because it defends Sharia law, fundraises for CAIR, defends the Muslim Brotherhood, publishes Islamist propaganda, calls American military racists and disparages Christians, Jews and white people.

Huffingtonpost.com turned to paid member subscriptions and laid off employees as advertiser revenues fall short.  Could this be the result of Florida Family Association influencing 1,306 out of 1,333 companies to stop advertising because of the Huffington Post's Islamist and vitriolic propaganda?

Florida Family Association reported The Wall Street Journal published an article on December 2, 2018 titled:  Paywall for HuffPost? Verizon Hunt for Web Revenue Goes Beyond Ads - Oath media unit at the wireless carrier to focus on e-commerce and paid subscriptions to content.  The article states in part:  Verizon Communications Inc.’s Oath unit is turning away from the advertising- and data-centric strategy that spurred its creation.  After failing to meet revenue targets by selling digital ads across Yahoo and AOL properties, Oath executives now are focused on selling content subscriptions and giving users ways to make purchases through its sites, according to people familiar with the matter.   Huffingtonpost.com started offering member subscription access to “special news events” on April 20, 2019.   The HuffPost sign up page states"Become A Member.  Your support will help us tell even more stories that hold power accountable, entertain without guilt and help people live their best lives.  In addition, HuffPost Plus members receive exclusive benefits, including discounts on HuffPost stuff, access to member-only newsletters and fewer ads on mobile apps."  Huffingtonpost.com is still accessible to nonmembers. 

It appears that Huffington Post’s attempt to increase revenues from subscriptions to cover advertising losses may have failed.  Huffington Post added a special banner to its website that solicited subscriptions from April 20, 2019 through the middle of July.  Coincidentally, Huffingtonpost.com removed the subscription solicitation banner from its website shortly after Florida Family Association reported its desperate attempt to generate revenue and questioned  how  long  Verizon  would  put its shareholders at risk of more losses from the vitriolic website.  While the banner has been removed the offer to subscribe is less noticeably posted on the website.  Click here to read more about Huffington Post's failed attempt to increase revenues through subscriptions.

Huffington Post lays off more workers.  Businessinsider.com reported on March 29, 2019:    “It's estimated that 20 employees were laid off at HuffPost last Thursday, including opinion writers, political reporters, and others.”  Huffingtonpost.com reports:  HuffPost unionized with the Writers Guild of America, East in 2017. A spokesman for the union said at least 15 members had lost their jobs. Two full teams ― the opinion and health sections ― were eliminated.

Florida Family Association encourages Corporate America to stop supporting Huffingtonpost.com's Islamist and vitriolic propaganda with consumer money.  Outlined below are just a few examples.

Huffington Post article helps Colin Kaepernick raise money to defend rioters "resisting police."

HuffPost published an article which informs its leftist readers about Kaepernick’s fund to help rioters that are arrested. The article states in part:

BLACK VOICES 05/29/2020 05:55 pm ET

Colin Kaepernick On Minneapolis Uprising: ‘We Have The Right To Fight Back’

The activist and former NFL quarterback launched a legal defense fund for those resisting police violence in response to the George Floyd killing.

Kaepernick tweeted.

When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction.

The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.

We have the right to fight back!

Rest in Power George Floyd

Huffington Post columns and articles assault the Christian faith:

•    A column titled: Christian Schools Like Karen Pence’s Are The Real Threat To Academic Freedom.  The article states in part:  Last week, the “second lady” of the United States, Karen Pence, went to work as an art teacher at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia. Immanuel Christian School requires “moral purity” from its staff, meaning they can’t be queer, have sex outside marriage or watch porn, and must “respect the unique roles of men and women.” Immanuel Christian is not unusual. Too many religious schools at all levels regulate the personal conduct of their employees and students, restrict the books teachers can assign or students can read, and demand fealty to narrow constructions of religious identity, while enshrining bigotry into their bylaws.

•    An article titled:  Voucher Schools Championed By Betsy DeVos Can Teach Whatever They Want. Turns Out They Teach Lies.    These schools teach creationism, racism and sexism.  The article assaults Christian schools for teaching creationism which is a fundamental of Christianity.  The article twists textbook quotes completely out of context to allege Christian schools are racist and sexist.   The article claims the textbook statement “Jews plotted to kill Jesus” is racist.  It is a fact that Jews plotted to kill Jesus, who was also Jewish.  Most Christians have a strong affinity for Israel and Jewish people.
•    A column titled: White evangelicals will never make America great again.  If a HuffPost.com article ever denigrated "black" Christians it would most likely lose all advertisers.  But some advertisers are okay with racist articles directed at white Christians.  

•    A column titledWhite Evangelicals Are The Most Fragile Of All White People.   The column is a sordid collection of unsubstantiated attacks on the character of “white evangelicals" and Christians.  The author of this hideous racist, column wrote many insults without any supporting facts.

Where are Huffingtonpost.com articles or columns that criticize Islam, Islamist political movement or Sharia law?  However, there are plenty of articles supporting the Islamist movement in America.  Some examples are provided below.

Huffingtonpost.com published an article on August 18, 2017 that calls America’s finest, our soldiers "racist" in its article titled “Becoming A Racist: The Unfortunate Side Effect Of Serving Your Country?”  In addition to smearing America’s finest with the racist title it trashes our police as well.  This article broadly paints the racist title on the people who give their lives for our public safety.

HuffPost.com added to its leftist content with an article titled Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now.  It’s going to be OK.  The article’s objective is to smooth over baby boomers’ fears of socialism which HuffPost claims was allegedly caused by misinformation and propaganda.

Huffington Post has published numerous articles that promote Islamist propaganda.  Huffington Post articles have defended the Muslim Brotherhood, defended Sharia law, 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.  Additionally, the Huffington Post has former Al Jazeera journalists writing articles and Huffington Post Arabic is led by hard line Islamists from Al Jazeera.  Many examples of Islamist propaganda articles are provided at the end of this article.

Huffington Post published an article written by Ben Piven on January 12, 2017 titled “Why Al Jazeera America Failed, And Why We Need It More Than Ever.”  The subtitle stated “America desperately needs something similar to pioneer this new era of uncertainty and misinformation.”  Ben Piven “was at Al Jazeera for over 5 years, including several years at AJAM in New York City and also in Doha at AJE during the height of the Arab Spring.”

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.

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?

•    The Huffington Post’s large number of readers and high volume of pro-Islamist and vitriolic, leftist reports makes it a leading proliferator of Islamist and vitriolic, leftist propaganda in the United States.

•    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 and allows Sharia to thrive.

•    The  Huffington  Post’s  frequent  pro-Islamist reporting feeds the Hate America crowd with more reasons to defend Islamists and ignore the harmful direction that results from its acceptance.  

•    HuffPost and HuffPost Arab employ several former Al Jazeera reporters and Islamist advocates who have pushed the Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood agenda.

•    Florida Family Association’s opposition campaign educates thousands of officials at hundreds of American and foreign companies about the harm caused by erroneous Islamophobia propaganda and pro-Islamist reporting.  The thousands of emails that company officials receive reveal that there are many Americans who find Islamist propaganda deceitful, harmful and offensive.

The Florida Family Association office has communicated with one thousand three hundred thirty three (1,333) companies since April 2016 regarding their advertising on Huffingtonpost.com as of July 31, 2020.   

•    A total of one thousand three hundred six (1,306) companies stopped advertising.  Ninety seven (98%) 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.

•   Twenty seven (27) companies continued to advertise.

The names of the companies that Stopped Advertising and that Continued Advertising are listed below.  New recent advertisers and companies that have not advertised in several months but advertised again in the report month are not included in the lists until sufficient time is allowed to determine if the companies will continue to advertise.

Examples of Huffington Post Islamist propaganda.

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 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. 

THIRD EXAMPLE:  Huffingtonpost.com defended Sharia law in its article titled 5 Things You Need To Know About Sharia law.  In the wake of an Islamic terror attack in Nice, France that killed 80 people, HuffPost reported “Asking American Muslims to swear off Sharia law is a violation of religious liberty.”  Many of the oppressive and violent tenets of Sharia law are antithetical to the rights afforded citizens by the Constitution of the United States.

FOURTH 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'."srael.

FIFTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on July 19, 2019 titled "Rep. Ilhan Omar Gets Hero’s Welcome As Supporters Greet Her After Trump Attacks.  We have your back, some of her supporters shouted in Minnesota as others chanted, Welcome home!”  Huffington Post published the above headline article which praised Islamist United States Representative Ilhan Omar who spews anti-Semitic rants, wants to defund the Department of Homeland Security, fundraised for Hamas linked, Muslim Brotherhood linked, terror linked CAIR and sponsored legislation that is attempting to put the Director of National Intelligence’s Terror Watch List under leftist congressional leadership oversight.

SIXTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published a report on October 12, 2016 titled Islamophobia Just Drove This Boy And His Family Out Of America.  It appears HuffPost pulled the article altogether because of credibility issues.

SEVENTH 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" that white washes Islam's harsh treatment toward women.   "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."

EIGHTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published an article on Apri1 26, 2016 titled "Did Jesus Predict Muhammad? A Biblical Portal Between Christianity and Islam" appears to blame Christianity for Islamist violence.  The article states in part:  "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.   This 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.

NINETH 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 and demonstrates a clear bias for Islamism.

TENTH 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. 

ELEVENTH 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.

TWELFTH 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.

THIRTEENTH 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."

FOURTEENTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published an article on March 30, 2017 and updated it on April 28, 2017 titled:  “The Hadith And The Myth Of An Antisemitic Genocide In Muslim Scripture” clearly white washes Muslim bigotry towards Israel.  Robert Spencer wrote at Jihadwatch.org in part:   HuffPost gave “three Islamic apologists space to explain that the hadith in which Muhammad is depicted as prophesying that Muslims will bring on the end times by killing Jews wholesale is really quite benign and nothing to worry about at all.  Here is the fullest version of the hadith, which appears many times in shorter forms in the two hadith collections that Muslims consider most reliable, Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim."

FIFTEENTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post started a project called “Documenting Hate” which put pressure on a Catholic Diocese to terminate well liked teacher Mark Smythe for sharing factual Catholic teaching with students that was critical of Muhammad.   In the case of the Huffington Post’s hit piece on Mark Smythe, the person who filed the complaint directly with the Huffington Post was not directly involved in the school.  This project is certainly being used to push the Islamophobia false narrative.     

SIXTEENTH EXAMPLE:  Huffington Post published an article on June 25, 2017 titled Another Violent Ramadan.  This article, which appears to focus on quelling people’s criticism of Islam, biasedly profiled a handful of incidents (many of them alleged incidents) that victimized Muslims.  The article quoted reports by the Council on American Islamic Relations.  HOWEVER, the article failed to report the overwhelming VIOLENCE that the people of Islam committed during Ramadan.  During Ramadan 2017 there were 161 Muslim terror attacks that killed 1,483 people and wounded 1,557 others.  

SEVENTEENTH EXAMPLE:  Huffington Post published an article on June 24, 2017 titled Most Of America’s Terrorists Are White, And Not Muslim.  The subheading stated "Right-wing terror is real, and it’s a problem."  The title speaks for itself as fake utter nonsense.

EIGHTEENTH EXAMPLE:  Huffington Post published an article on July 27, 2017 titled "I Became Muslim Because Of Jesus."  The html link for this article states "Jesus guided me to Islam."  This outrageous report is offensive to Christians.

NINETEENTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 16, 2018 titled “The Girl Who Lied About Hijab Attack Deserves An Apology.”  Khawlah Noman, 11, started a media and political firestorm by falsely reporting that a strange man had cut her hijab with scissors on her way to school.  Her fake story captured national and international attention, and drew public condemnation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.   Huffington Post reports that Khawlah Noman is not only deserving of sympathy but an apology for the blowback that came her way after she was outed by police as making it up.

TWENTIETH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post promotes hijab and Islamist oppressive dress.  The Huffingtonpost.com published an article on February 1, 2018 titled “One Of The Largest Retailers In The U.S. Is Launching A Hijab-Friendly Fashion Line.  Muslim and non-Muslim women will be able to purchase hijabs, tops and loose pants on the Macy’s website.

TWENTY FIRST EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article written by Nate Terani titled "Donald Trump’s America Is Already Hell Enough For This Muslim-American."  The article states in part:  "In some dark corner of my mind, given what we know about what we human beings are capable of, I can almost imagine some kind of Muslim-American version of the Holocaust, the ultimate nightmare that immigrants and Muslim-Americans have dreaded since Donald Trump’s election victory in November 2016, but dare not whisper."  This demagogic article clearly fans the flames of hate toward President Trump, his cabinet and anyone who rightfully expresses concern regarding the nationalistic approach that Islamists are taking toward establishing a Caliphate.

TWENTY SECOND EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article that promotes an Islamic rapper whose goal is to normalize the hijab and Islamist ways.  The article is subtitled “This Rapper Is Challenging Stereotypes Of Muslim Women Through Her Music."

TWENTY THIRD EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article titled "In The Name Of Hate, Muslim Women Face Road Rage Behind The Wheel" that defends the Sharia inspired hijab without evidence.  A Muslim woman alleges that she was the victim of road rage but the article states she does not even know what the other driver yelled at her.   The article states:  Although Omar couldn’t hear what he was shouting, she knew what it was about. In her gut, she said, she knew he was attacking her for her hijab.“ ’He was probably calling me a terrorist or something,” Omar told HuffPost. “I just knew.”  More made up accounts, progaganda.

TWENTY FOURTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article titled "Rep. Ilhan Omar Wanted To Discuss Palestine. Here’s What’s Happened There Since.  Israeli soldiers have killed two Palestinians just this week."  The article defended Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar and Hamas occupied Palestine during the time that Omar was spewing anti-Semitism vitriol.

TWENTY FIFTH EXAMPLE:   The Huffington Post published an article titled "Islamophobia Is A Global Crisis — And It’s Time We View It That Way" to push the Islamophobia false narrative.
