#GivingTuesday is devoted to aiding organizations that work for truth and justice. That’s why there is no more fitting recipient of your tax-deductible donation today than the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), America’s foremost human rights activist group.
AFDI is groundbreaking and unique among human rights organizations. Since our founding, AFDI has been a gamechanger — taking on the battle head-on, and taking it straight to the enemy.
We fought for the rights of an ex-Muslim teen, Rifqa Bary, when her father threatened her life and no one else showed any interest in her plight at all. We dedicated a memorial to Aqsa Parvez and other victims of honor killing, becoming the only organization in the Western world to memorialize and stand up for the rights of honor killing victims.
We ran thousands of bus ads highlighting the threat of jihad and Islamic anti-Semitism, the only response to the inundation of hate-filled anti-Semitic ads that ran on buses and subways all over the country.
We defeated the sinister Ground Zero Mosque project when the rest of the world was ready to accept a triumphal mosque built right next to the site where thousands of Americans lost their lives in an Islamic jihad attack.
We filed a dozen free speech lawsuits, which we all won.
We are still fighting back, but the odds against us are more prohibitive than ever. For years now, the evil Leftist propaganda group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has defamed us as a “hate group.” The smear has been irritating, but ultimately ineffective in stopping our work. Recently, however, the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee has called for stripping tax-exempt status from 60 “hate groups,” including AFDI.
Even worse, the United States Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from us in our ongoing case against the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). We tried to run ads in Washington criticizing Muhammad and the murderous hysteria over Muhammad cartoons, but bowing to Sharia, WMATA refused to run them.
They cannot refute us. They cannot defeat us. They cannot silence us. So they’re determined to destroy us.
These massive hate machines such as the SPLC, Media Matters, the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others have tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of dollars to deploy to spread their lies and defamation. All we have is the truth – and you.
We are going to fight on, and we are going to win.
But now more than ever, we need your help. We need people with courage, and with a determination to save America as the world’s beacon of freedom. We need patriots who are willing to sacrifice to preserve our freedoms for our children and our children’s children. We need you.
The crisis is more severe than ever. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Even if your donation is only $50 or $75, it will help us in our efforts against authoritarianism and Sharia. No one but AFDI is taking the fight to the enemies of freedom, challenging their steady encroachments on free speech and free expression.
