Condemn Political Pundit for Mocking Detained Mexican Girl With Down Syndrome

Target: Rupert Murdoch, CEO of Fox News

Goal: Demand media network boycott controversial political commentator for disrespecting a detained 10-year-old Mexican girl with Down syndrome.

A conservative political pundit recently mocked a 10-year-old Mexican girl with Down syndrome who was separated from her mother at the U.S.-Mexico border. Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski insulted the child on a Fox News debate against Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas. While Petkanas lambasted the administration’s ruthless “zero-tolerance” immigration policy for incarcerating a mentally handicapped youth, Lewandowski had the audacity to say “womp womp.” He proceeded to erroneously defend his actions on Twitter, saying that “it’s offensive that the [mainstream media] doesn’t want to talk about the fact these policies were started under Obama.”

Lewandowski gained notoriety after being fired from Trump’s campaign for aggressively grabbing a Breitbart reporter. Yet this is a newfound low for the bigoted man unfazed by over 2,300 children unlawfully taken away from their legal guardians. What makes this girl’s case even more tragic is that her father is a lawful U.S. resident who deserves custody of his children. Currently, the mother is being held as a witness at a converted Walmart-prison, since Customs and Border Protection intends to prosecute the U.S. citizen who drove her and five children across the border. With people tolerating child abuse on national television, sign the petition to demand Lewandowski have his influential platform revoked.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Murdoch,

Recently, one of your most notorious commentators made some of the most disparaging statements ever heard on national television. During a debate with a Democratic strategist, Corey Lewanadowski brushed aside ongoing human rights abuses across the country. Specifically, he said “womp womp” in response to a 10-year-old girl from Mexico who was separated from her mother and detained in McAllen, Texas alongside her brother. In the end, Lewandowski showed his true colors — callous, immoral, and truly insensitive to human suffering. You should be ashamed of yourself for providing this man with such a forum that allows him to undermine the trauma of over 2,300 imprisoned children.

As Megyn Kelly said over Twitter, Lewandowski deserves to be stripped of his platform based on his tendency to spew such hatred. Moreover, it has become appallingly clear that he is lenient towards child endangerment and abuse. Get it through your head that this isn’t about politicizing children’s strife — it’s a matter of human decency that some of your colleagues appear to be lacking. Instead of promoting the distribution of fake news and polarizing political commentary, we implore you to scrap Lewandowski of his access to American airwaves. Find the compassion in your heart to prevent this man from working anymore in the journalism industry.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
