Trump: Denounce Islamophobic Republican Nominee

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Speak out against Islamophobe who won GOP nomination.

Laura Loomer, a member of the political radical right in the United States and an outspoken Islamophobe, has won a GOP nomination and received vocal support from President Trump. Loomer is the Republican nominee in Florida’s 21st District, which is home to President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. President Trump tweeted, “Great going Laura. You have a great chance against a Pelosi puppet!”

While Loomer was nominated following a fair democratic process, President Trump’s support of the candidate is morally troublesome. Loomer is a controversial member of the radical right. She has described Islam as a “cancer on humanity.” Furthermore, Loomer does not believe in a fair democratic process herself, calling for Muslim candidates to be ineligible to hold office in America. She openly calls herself a “proud Islamophobe.” As a result of her hurtful beliefs, Loomer has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. After stating that “someone needs to create a non Islamic form of Uber or Lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver,” Loomer has also been banned from Uber and Lyft ride-sharing services.

Loomer does not simply represent a conservative political stance. Her beliefs about Islam are xenophobic and dangerous. They are morally reprehensible and should be openly discouraged by those in the seats of highest power. Sign this petition to urge President Trump to speak out against Laura Loomer.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

Your support of GOP nominee Laura Loomer is incredibly problematic. Her beliefs about Islam are prejudiced, dangerous, and xenophobic. She is not the type of person who should have a platform in the United States.

The eyes of the world are on you as we approach a US presidential election. In previous election years, there have been deep divisions in the United States around politics, but 2020 is unique in that there are deep moral divides as well. As the President of the United States you have a duty to show the empathy and moral steadfastness that is needed to underpin a land that is truly free for all. I urge you to denounce Laura Loomer and her Islamophobic beliefs.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
