Obama Administration Announces Nationwide Muslim Outreach Program For Children Grades K-12 -
Washington, DC — At a press conference today, President Obama announced plans for the first ever federally funded Muslim outreach program
However, the claims in the report are untrue. There are no credible reports that support the claim that the Obama administration is implementing any such program.
Moreover, whole portions of the report's text are copied verbatim from an earlier, openly satirical piece titled "Obama Declares November National Muslim Appreciation Month" published on satire website, National Report. President Obama's supposed comments about the Muslim community deserving full respect and understanding and about the millions of Muslims killed overseas are the same in both articles. The comments attributed to "Khaled Matei" are also identical in both reports.
The inclusion of these comments from the original - and entirely fictional - "National Muslim Appreciation Month" story indicates that the "Nationwide Muslim Outreach Program" story is also a work of fiction.
And, research on the phone number listed in the report indicates that it belongs to the Republican National Committee, rather than the "Nationwide Muslim Youth Outreach hotline" as claimed.
Ironically, even a Tea Party Facebook Page has condemned the Muslim outreach story as fake.The Conservative Frontline and National Report websites are remarkably similar in appearance and tend to cross promote each other's material via their social networking feeds.
