Muslim DNC delegates were censored and banned from Daily Kos following intervention from ‘Team Biden’

Eighteen years ago this month, my government began its invasion of Iraq through a deliberate disinformation campaign. The mainstream media was complicit in spreading lies about weapons of mass destruction in the face of widespread public protest and opposition. Today is no different. We spray bombs, launch missile strikes, and impose sanctions without regard for the lives of those on the ground.

In August of 2020, I served as a DNC National Delegate for Bernie Sanders. I worked with 17 other Muslim delegates and allies to draft DNC policy recommendations for the Democratic Party Platform. Another 70 delegates, some backing Sanders, others Joe Biden, endorsed our recommendations. Sixteen recommendations were accepted into the 2020 Democratic Party Platform, including concerns about endless wars, discriminatory travel and immigration bans, celebration of America’s history of religious pluralism and tolerance, end of support for Saudi-led war in Yemen, and the military occupation of countries. Specifically, language was added to the 2020 Democratic Party Platform, which stated,

Rather than occupy countries and overthrow regimes to prevent terrorist attacks, Democrats will prioritize more effective and less costly diplomatic, intelligence, and law enforcement tools. We will right-size our counterterrorism footprint, put it in service of broader regional and overarching foreign policy objectives, and ensure it never undermines the values we seek to uphold. And we will mobilize our partners to make sustained investments that can prevent conflict and help extinguish the flames on which extremists feed.
