Reports lack facts, sugar-coat hate monger
SRAZ has ventured into the mind-numbing arena of the AZ Republic’s irrational reports recently. The conjecture, extreme leftwing skew and wishing-it-were-so cover-ups are appalling.
May 27, we brought our readers, Major reason to steer clear of deceptive AZ Republic. It was followed on June 2, by AZ Republic: Foolish reports take center stage again. With these “reports” coming at breakneck speed, it’s difficult to keep up with them. They are not only foolish, they are deceitful.
Today we present a couple of headlined articles worth delving into:
Headline Number One: “Lawmakers to Pentagon: Reverse transgender ban.”
Bear in mind there are 100 voting senators and 435 representatives. Both chambers hold Republican majorities. There were “over 100 members” who signed the letter written by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy,III (D-MA) to Defense Secretary James Mattis demanding a reversal of the Pentagon’s ban on transgender people from military service. The policy originally authorizing transgender troops was instituted by Barack Obama.
Countless searches failed to locate a copy of the letter or any of the signers, though it reportedly concluded with this zinger: “If President Trump and his administration are committed to all of our service members, they will immediately reverse this bigoted ban.”
Headline Number Two: “Louis Farrakhan Jr, dies at Phoenix home.”
“His father, Louis Farrakhan,” according to the newspaper, “is known for preaching a conservative message of self-reliance and family values coupled with black empowerment, but has drawn criticism for fostering anti-Semitic views in the past.”
Louis Farrakhan, the head of the black separatist Nation of Islam, never preached conservative messages. His anti-Semitism has remained virulent, hateful and incites violence. In March 2018 during a Saviours’ Day event to commemorate the life of Nation of Islam founder Master Fard Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan had some choice descriptions of Jewish people. The “powerful Jews,” he told the audience inside Chicago’s Wintrust Arena, “are my enemy.” The Jews are also “responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.” He issued a threat to the Jewish community, saying , “Farrakhan has pulled the cover off the eyes of the Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
In 1986, the Nation of Islam, moved its headquarters to Phoenix, where Farrakhan directed the group.
Farrakhan contemptibly claims Jews committed the 9/11 terrorist attacks in order to start a war between the West and the Muslim world, and to enable the “Jewish owner” of the World Trade Center to collect billions of dollars in insurance money.
National Review recently wrote about Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic tweets. He’s known for praising Hitler and derided Judaism as a “gutter religion.”
Even the radically leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, also known to foment hatred, refers to the Nation of Islam as a hate group. They can recognize one of their own, but the Arizona Republic wears blinders.
