“Nick Vallelonga, the Golden Globe-winning writer of the critically acclaimed drama ‘Green Book,’ has apologized for a 2015 tweet containing a false, Islamophobic statement.”
The wording is true to form for Leftist propagandist CNN, but were Vallelonga’s words really “Islamophobic”?
In the tweet, sent to then-candidate Donald Trump, Vallelonga claimed he saw “Muslims in Jersey City cheering” when the World Trade Center towers collapsed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Vallelonga’s Twitter account was deleted after the tweet resurfaced this week.
So did Vallelonga flat-out lie to malign Muslims when he tweeted out what he saw? Or did he perhaps think he saw cheering that was not really happening? Strange. But Vallelonga sure followed up with what Leftists and Muslim lobbies such as CAIR want: he sank into dhimmitude, as most people do when bullied by the Islamic lobby-Leftist alliance, and groveled, pleading for forgiveness. At that point, truth be damned.
Donald Trump back in 2015 was also lambasted by the Leftist media for reporting that he, too, saw cheering, only, Trump didn’t back down (no surprise!):
