Demand Apology from Anti-Muslim Fearmonger

"Islamophobic Propaganda #16"

Target: Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT For America

Goal: Demand anti-Muslim bigot publicly apologize for recent prejudiced comments against Muslim Americans

An anti-Muslim activist’s spree of fearmongering and bigotry was resuscitated with a recent television interview. While her comments are not unusual for her, she is a prominent member of the American anti-Muslim community and is responsible for fostering a culture of Islamophobia in the United States. Demand that she apologize for her recent comments.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder of the Islamophobic organization ACT For America and prominent member of the anti-Muslim right, recently gave an interview on conservative cable news network Newsmax TV. During the interview, the host turned the conversation to Dearborn, Michigan, the city with the highest concentration of Arab-American Muslims in the United States. In response to the host’s observation that not many homes in Dearborn had American flags hanging outside, Gabriel offered that Muslim communities in the United States are not “blending in” because they are being told in mosques that they should not make friends with Americans, not assimilate, and “not shake hands on Christmas or Easter or wish the Americans a happy holiday.” These comments come after a long and detailed history of anti-Muslim fearmongering and conspiracy theorizing on Gabriel’s part. The pettiness of her most recent comments and its playing into the Fox News “War on Christmas” narrative only underscores the ridiculousness of her position.

We have a duty to hold people accountable for their roles in creating the culture of Islamophobia in the United States that has led to an increase in hate crimes against the American Muslim community. Sign the petition below to demand that Brigitte Gabriel apologize for her bigoted remarks.


Dear Ms. Gabriel,

I am writing you today about some comments you made recently during an interview with Newsmax TV. Your remarks were baseless and bigoted and serve only to perpetuate a hostile and vitriolic environment that you yourself have taken part in creating in years past. I urge you to apologize for your remarks immediately.

The remarks in question–where you said that American Muslims were being taught in mosques across the country to not assimilate into American culture–catered to a common narrative in the Islamophobic right of this country wherein American Muslims are trying to subvert a “quintessentially American” way of life, and perpetuated the common theme of nationwide Muslim conspiracy. These are narrative devices that you, and others, have repeated time and time again to nurture in the American political dialogue a strong, destructive strain of anti-Muslimism. Any continuing efforts to reaffirm these narrative devices in today’s political dialogue serve only to perpetuate a culture that has produced a rampant increase in anti-Muslim violence and Islamophobic prejudice.

Bearing these things in mind, it is clear that your comments are dangerous and perpetuate a culture of hate. I demand that you publicly apologize for them immediately, to communicate to the American people (including the American Muslim community) that you do not endorse a culture of violence against Muslims.


[Your Name Here]

  1. This petition is from a muslin, which are the ones who can’t say absolutely nothing to anyone. If this woman said something I totally support her. muslins are criminals who insult, kill, murder, rape there afre several gangs of muslins caugh raping white women and putting them to prostitution in Europe. islam is evil and you come with such a shit petition???? You should suffer some of the things that muslins do. They are all the same, even the ones who seemed moderate. The shit qu’ran says without doubt to anyone with brain, that they must do the jihad and submit all. What muslins want is to do all sorts of crimes and go ahed without any criminal charges bec it will be racism and
    Islamophobia. I am in shock, for such a shit petition. Why should this woman apologize??? She shouldn’t. She should say worse loud and clear. muslins don’t respect nobody, don’t want any other culture besides their from the cave times, and if somebody says what she thinks needs to apologize??? Where is your freedom of speech?? Is that just for muslins??? Your democracy is very muslin, don’t serve me for sure.
