After a week of nonstop jihad terror in New York, de Blasio and his accomplices continue to put Islam first, center and last. In the past week alone: Muslim meat cleavers NYPD cops, a devout Muslim in New York (working with how many others remains to be seen) plants 11 bombs in New York City and New Jersey. And a Muslim pleaded guilty to a plot to behead me in New York.
The New York City response? A campaign against islamofauxbia.
I have been tweeting out/shouting out all the NY Muslims who plotted and/or committed jihad terror in NYC but for some reason my tweets are not showing under the new hashtag.
“New York launches ad campaign to fight anti-Muslim rhetoric, violence,” by Ellen Wulfhorst, Reuters, September 26, 2016:
NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – New York City kicked off a social media advertising campaign on Monday to combat negative perceptions of Muslims and counteract increasing instances of threats and violence, officials said.
Showing an array of photographs of Muslim men and women, the campaign reads “I am Muslim. I am NYC”, according to the New York City Commission on Human Rights.
The campaign is aimed at addressing negative depictions and rhetoric, officials said.
Anti-Muslim sentiment has been playing a major role as the U.S. presidential race has heated up. Republican nominee Donald Trump claimed he saw thousands of people cheering after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and has called for shutting down mosques and banning Muslims from certain countries from entering the United States.
In New York, an Afghan-born man is accused of wounding 31 people in a bombing on Sept. 17 that authorities called a “terrorist act”. The suspect had embraced militant Islamic views, authorities say.
“Now more than ever, it is important for every New Yorker to stand united as one city and reject hate and violence,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement announcing the ad campaign.
“In New York, everyone deserves to be treated with respect. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, agnostic and atheist — it doesn’t matter,” he said. “We are all New Yorkers and we all deserve to live safely and free from hatred or discrimination.”
Some 3.3 million Muslims live in the United States, and thousands live in New York City, according to the commission.
The ads will be placed on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #IamMuslimNYC….
