Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 15, 2019

YAMA, MPower Change, CAIR-New York, Yemeni American Community Center, and allies are demanding the following to the New York Post: 1. We demand a public apology to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Muslim Americans, and minorities who have been persistently victimized by the New York Post's propaganda that spreads nothing but hate and fear to the streets of New York City. #BoycottNYPost 2. We demand the New York Post change their cheap and sensational tabloids that undermine national unity and entice violence and hate for the sole purpose of circulation and sales against minority communities. #BoycottNYPost 3. We demand the firing of New York Post's editor in chief Stephen Lynch who has demonstrated clear viciousness and intent to spread racism and hysteria that leads to violence against our communities, especially in times when Islamophobia is at its highest levels. #BoycottNYPost 4. We demand elected officials/government officials to stop giving the New York Post any platforms to spread hate and racism in this multicultural city and across the nation at large! #BoycottNYPost

This boycott makes sense, but really, if they call themselves really devout Muslim, they need to stop selling the alcohol and lottery tickets. That's what the Somali guy down my street did-- he sold his corner deli because he could no longer bear selling stuff that his religion prohibited. He's now monetizing YouTube videos of him reciting his Quran verses or something and doing quite well I guess. I miss buying beer from him.

The NY Post has been like that for as long as I can remember (going back to the late 1970's or so).

I doubt if it will change now.

I wish them the best of luck.

I've never bought one of those terrible tabloids in my life.

The shorter version of that hypocritical rant.

We demand...

...that any mention that 9/11 was an act of Islamic terrorism be suppressed.

@#4 ... that any mention that 9/11 was an act of Islamic terrorism be suppressed. ...

'Tis a shame, but not really a surprise, that is what you discern from what was said.

You have to actually read before this boycott has any significance.

First off, the NY Post is a NYC rag that is PRO TRUMP. This boycott doesn't make sense. No one who has half a brain reads it. What anyone with brown skin is afraid is the white power back lash that comes from this. And that's what's happening. People are getting lynched from walking while being brown, thanks to rags like the NY Post.

The Post's covers are occasionally funny.
Low hanging fruit, but still funny.

@#7 ... the NY Post is a NYC rag ...

It has the same owner as the Wall Street Journal, i.e., News Corp.

@#9 -- To be frank, they're all rags. They rage on like religions; THEY are the only sources of good news; CNN, FoxNews, InfoWars... They are right and everyone else is wrong.

However, in a way, I don't blame them. People want to hear what they want to hear. That's how people like Jim Jones got their followers to drink the kool-aid; if they have to drink the kool-aid to catch a short cut into heaven, then by golly, they'll drink it! With Trump in the WH, all the hillbillies think they too can become billionaire POTUS someday. They too want to be able to grab all the women by the ---- and "kill'em some nee-gras!" Just like big daddy Trump.

Do you really think people want to hear the truth? Then why give it to them? Truth doesn't sell rags like the NY Post. Sex, cigarettes and hallelujah are what sells papers these days.

But one day, this will be all over. And there will be gnashing of teeth and chewing of tongues. And the Truth appears, those that thought they had the ticket into the promised land... oi.
