Truth About Islam Exposed, Student Fired For Tweets

truth about Islam

There was an “interfaith panel” held on April 26, 2017, at Portland State University. It hosted an array of individuals who discussed various religious stances. One panelist, a Muslim, stated that apostates and infidels are to be killed or “banished” from a Muslim country. The truth about Islam exposed simply because a student reported on what the Muslim panel member said.

Andy Ngo is the student who tweeted about this. Once the truth about Islam was exposed, Ngo lost his job.

He tweeted a video regarding the panel, the school newspaper fired him for the truth. The status of journalism is severely lacking in the US and the truthful journalists are being fired.

Andy Ngo wrote about his experience for the National Review:

Last month, I attended an interfaith panel discussion, “Unpacking Misconceptions,” at Portland State University, where I’m a political-science graduate student. I ended up being fired as the multimedia editor of our student newspaper, the Vanguard, for tweeting about what was said there.

At one point, a woman in the audience asked the Muslim student if a specific verse in the Koran actually permitted the killing of non-Muslims. “I can confidently tell you, when the Koran says an innocent life, it means an innocent life, regardless of the faith, the race, like, whatever you can think about as a characteristic,” he began.

“And some of this, that you’re referring to, like killing non-Muslims,” he takes a long pause and then looks out at the audience with a grin, “that is only considered a crime when the country’s the law– if the country’s based on Koranic law, that means there is no other law than the Koran, so, in that case you’re giving the liberty to like . . . leave the country. You can go to a different country, I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. So, you can go on [sic] a different country, but in a Muslim country, a country based on the Koranic laws, disbelieving, or being an infidel is not allowed. So you will be given the choice.”

He tweeted two videos on the truth about Islam:

My editor, whom I deeply respected at the time, called me “predatory” and “reckless,” telling me I had put the life and well-being of the Muslim student and his family at risk. She said that my tweets implied the student advocated the killing of atheists. Another person in the meeting said I should have taken into account the plight of victimized groups in the “current political climate.” The editor claimed I had “violated the paper’s ethical standards” by not “minimizing harm” toward the speaker.

All these accusations were shocking to me. Moments after publishing the original video, I shared the tweet with the editor and a Vanguard reporter who was at the event. Neither of them expressed any outrage in response back then. The tweets apparently only became “predatory” and “reckless” when conservative sites picked up on them.

In my defense, I told the two editors that I had simply been relating the speaker’s words. While dozens of Muslim states do not consider apostasy or blasphemy a crime, 13 Muslim-majority countries punish these actions with death. The speaker was admitting as much, and as someone who has covered the persecution of atheists and apostates in Muslim countries, I considered that newsworthy. Nevertheless, my editor turned to me and said, “We have to ask you to step aside.” She said I had “a history” of affiliation with conservative media, and argued that that history was toxic to the “reputation of the Vanguard.”
