    HOAX / Satire Warning: Obama declares Muslim appreciation month

    This article is a HOAX! National Report is a satirical website which sometimes posts things that are very believable. Please note that you are NOT seeing this anywhere credible.

    Note these sources:

    By the following day links and excerpts referencing this article were being circulated via social media, with many of those who encountered the item mistaking it for a genuine news article. However, the article was just a bit of satire from the National Report, a web site that publishes outrageous fictional stories such as "IRS Plans to Target Leprechauns Next," "Boy Scouts Announce Boobs Merit Badge," and "New CDC Study Indicates Pets of Gay Couples Worse at Sports, Better at Fashion Than Pets of Straight Couples."

    The National Report's (since removed) disclaimer page notes that:
    National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

    Many awoke this morning to the headline that Barack Obama had declared November to be “National Muslim Appreciation Month.”

    Just one little snag with this caption – it isn’t true.

    Fortunately the hoax was quickly exposed for what it was and the predictable right-wing hand-wringing and lamentation soon gave way to declarations of embarrassment accompanied by the obligatory red-faced “oopsie-daisies” for so readily believing the news.

    No, November is not Muslim Appreciation Month; it’s America is Gullible Month, and you’ve been nominated Grand Marshal of the parade

    Some people used to get suckered periodically by headlines in The Onion, before most people figured out it was a publication full of parodies.

    But the along came The Courant; not everyone got that one yet.
    Then there’s National Report. Even fewer have it figured out.

    So, there was uproar on Facebook, on Twitter, and probably on your e-mail, earlier this evening when this story leaked out gushed all over unwitting computer-screen gazers.

    Real or Hoax: Obama Declares November “National Muslim Appreciation Month”

    September 28th, 2013 | Add a Comment
    A report circulating online claims that President Obama has proclaimed this November to be “National Muslim Appreciation Month.”

    The story is fake.

    The article from which this claim originated was published on the satirical website National Report. Despite its outrageous headline, even a cursory glance of the article’s content should be sufficient proof of satire to most readers:

    Obama informed reporters about his future plans for helping Muslims around the world. “I will be working with Congress in making it easier for Muslims to earn a Green Card and achieve American citizenship,” Obama said. “Currently as it stands, obtaining a Visa or Green Card for a Muslim is very difficult. There are too many background checks in place and I plan to fix that.”

    The report ends with a “hotline” phone number which can supposedly be reached for any additional questions. The number given, however, actually belongs to the controversial Westboro Baptist Church.
    Despite the humorous nature of the report – and the website in general – the story has been circulated by readers apparently unaware of its farcical nature.

    National Report

    Until recently, National Report posted a disclaimer, clearly stating that the website produced satirical content. The disclaimer – which has since been removed – read:
    *DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental . The views expressed by writers on this site are theirs alone and are not reflective of the fine journalistic and editorial integrity of National Report. Advice given is NOT to be construed as professional. If you are in need of professional help (and you may be if you are on this page), please consult a professional. National Report is intended for a mature audience and not for children under the age of 18.

    Bottom Line

    President Obama did not declare November to be “National Muslim Appreciation Month.” The story originated from a satirical website.

    What's so satirical about that the whole Obama Administration has clearly proven in word and deed many times over that they appreciate the Muslim ideology, over America's, and that has been from day one.
