The Southern Poverty Law Center has put my name on a list that calls me an ‘anti-Muslim extremist’. I am the only Muslim on the list. This list has smeared my name and possibly put me in physical danger.
This is a case of the regressive left bullying a Muslim who has spent the last 10 years trying to tackle all forms of extremism, particularly Islamist extremism.
They cannot be allowed to intimidate anti-extremists in this manner, for all our sakes.
This is a message to those who think they can throw around damning labels against individuals, like ‘Islamophobe’, ‘racist’ and ‘Nazi’, without being challenged.
I’m not the only one who feels like this; there’s an entire movement of disaffected liberals, libertarians and conservatives who are all coming together to fight this new authoritarian left.
I’m calling upon this new grassroots movement to support me. This movement is for them just as much as me. It’s time to show them that misinformation and hateful rhetoric have consequences.
Please donate as much as you can to help me take on this legal challenge.
