WHAT: 113 Bay Area Civil Rights and Interfaith Groups Host Unity Rally
WHEN: Saturday, June 10, 11 a.m.
WHERE: Stevens Creek Blvd. and Santana Row, San Jose
The leading sponsor of the anti-Islam protests, Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT for America, has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC has named “Brigitte Gabriel” as a member of the nation’s “Anti-Muslim Inner Circle.”
Gabriel has argued that, “America is at stage two Islamic Cancer.” She believes “every practicing Muslim is a radical Muslim,” a Muslim “cannot be a loyal citizen of the United States,” and that Arabs “have no soul.”
ACT for America’s planned rallies are being supported by a number of white supremacist, neo-Nazi, anti-government, and Islamophobic hate groups.
