CLEAR CHANNEL REFUSES TO ALLOW TIMES SQUARE BILLBOARD DEMANDING REMOVAL OF OMAR FROM CONGRESS

AMERICAN VOICES ARE SILENCED IN CONDEMNING AN ANTISEMITIC CONGRESSWOMAN

(NEW YORK, NEW YORK) –May 20, 2019 –Today’s scheduled multi-organizational rally in New York’s Time Square to demand the removal of Ilhan Omar from Congress was denied the display of a commercial billboard.

The Omar Times Square billboard demanding her removal due to her anti-Semitic comments and ties to Islamic terror front groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief USA was denied ad space at the eleventh hour by Clear Channel.   

This denial of advertising space comes on the heels of national headlines made by Clear Channel for their refusal earlier this month to display a billboard by Focus On The Family, an evangelical Christian ministry. The planned 4-D ultra-sound image of an unborn baby, in support of their pro-life  “Alive From New York,” was denied for the event staged on May 4.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Founder and President of the evangelical Christian advocacy organization, Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN), and an Advisory Board member of the more than one dozen organizations staging the Omar protest rally, noted:  “Today’s event was overshadowed by a definite attempt by Clear Channel to silence the free expression of Judeo/Christian and American values—an agenda carried out by both Clear Channel and by Facebook.  Facebook removed, without notice, the fundraising page established and actively receiving donations to help fund the event. The removal came on the vague grounds of ‘violation of community standards’ despite the fact that the page was originally set-up through proper channels in the Facebook system.”

Cardoza Moore’s PJTN organization has been responsible for amassing tens of thousands of signatures in an online petition calling from the removal of Ilhan Omar.

Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, one of the organizers hosting the rally stated, “US Corporate culture is now completely in the province of political correctness and will be part of the further decline of US society. Those very rare entities who are not in line, like Chick-fil-A, will need to tread water to survive, irrespective of their product quality.”

Cardoza-Moore concludes that “a double standard exists when our attempts to wake up America to the dangers to our national security and our Judeo/Christian/American values that Omar stands against through her anti-Semitic messaging and support of terrorist groups. This is evident as we are denied the right to display a viable and truthful viewpoint for Americans to consider in an open forum like Times Square. Most sobering of all, and at the heart of this entire reprehensible scenario, is the stark realization that voices that don’t espouse the values and views of the left wing liberal media are subject to being totally turned off by organizations such as Clear Channel and Facebook. Unless these corporate biases on free speech are challenged, it will set the stage for the continued decline of freedom in America as we know it.”

While today’s rally to demand Omar’s removal will be staged as planned in Times Square, it is now a prelude to a larger event already in the planning.  More speakers, a higher profile national call to action, and a larger billboard are all to be featured.
