EXCLUSIVE: Eyewitness Refutes Media Stories that VA House Delegate Was Targeted for Muslim Faith

The media went out of its way to make conservatives look like bigots. An eyewitness refuted their claims.

Tuesday, several local news media outlets in Virginia posted sob stories about a Herndon, Virginia Town Hall event during which House Delegate Ibraheem Samirah (D) was allegedly harassed for his Muslim faith.

“Samirah said protesters carried signs denouncing Sharia law and made pointed comments attacking his faith,” according to The Loudon Times-Mirror. “He said the attacks were especially troubling because they came during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month marked by dawn to dusk fasting.”

But an eyewitness and part-organizer of the event spoke with Big League Politics and provided photos the protests: None included mention of “Sharia law.”

“If anything, most of our signs were pro-life, anti-abortion signs,” Amanda Morris said. “A couple [of signs] said Virginia Supports Israel, and we had little Israeli and U.S. handheld flags.”

She sent the following photos to prove that no anti-Sharia signs were present:

 

Morris said the group was protesting Samirah – and  his predecessor Jennifer Boysko – mostly because of their pro-abortion views.

Samirah was outed as an anti-Semite when Big League Politics exposed social media posts in which he said donating money to Israel is worse than supporting the KKK, and that Ariel Sharon, the former Israeli Prime Minister, should “burn in hell.” Given Samirah’s past comments, the group waved Israeli flags to show support for Israel – not uncommon for Republicans.

Another local news station, WUSA9, went further in making Samirah appear to be a victim of anti-Muslim bigotry.

“Samirah said there were about 20 protesters outside Herndon Town Hall ahead of his meeting Saturday,” according to their report. “He said even though things remained calm, police will likely be needed at his next public event.”

But Morris said that police were already present at Monday’s Town Hall – and that she herself contacted them to let them know they would be protesting.

“I called them days in advance to let them know and coordinate,” Morris said. “Lt. Thompson in the Herndon Police. He arranged for officers to be present and for me to have a point person in case of trouble. We had just under 30 people, including children, the elderly, a disabled woman in a walker, a young girl with Down’s Syndrome.”

Samirah claims that inside the event, which Morris did not attend, he was asked how he planned to implement Sharia law in Virginia. He posted a recording of alleged encounter to Twitter, but only of his answer. The inquiry in question can not be heard in the recording.

Big League Politics reached out to Samirah and WUSA9 reporter Lorenzo Hall. Neither returned comment requests.
