Texas Congressman Steve Stockman demanded an apology from MoveOn.org for supporting a petition, since 2012, asking that Nigerian group Boko Haram not be designated a terrorist group, Houston News reported last night. The petition had been placed on the site in 2012 to gather support for the idea that Boko Haram should not be designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the State Department.
“Boko Haram has murdered thousands and kidnapped hundreds of little girls to sell into sexual slavery. It is beyond despicable for Democrat Party groups to support a terrorist organization,” said Stockman. “The Democrat Party group MoveOn should apologize for hosting supporters of kidnappers and terrorists.”
The petition said “Reject Terrorist Designation for Boko Haram” was removed just recently after Stockman raised this issue and demand the organization apologize for hosting the petition. The petition requested the Obama Administration “not to support the formal designation of Boko Haram in Nigeria as a ‘Foreign Terrorist Organization’ (FTO).”
Houston News reports, “The Obama administration, under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, refused to designate Boko Haram a terrorist group even after it bombed United Nations headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria in 2011. The group was finally designated a FTO in November 2013.”
MoveOn.org was created near the end of the Clinton Administration during the Monica Lewinsky controversy to urge “moving on” from that scandal, and has since evolved into one of the largest independent organizations on the left that supports issues and causes associated with the Democrat Party and Democrat candidates. Houston News reports, “MoveOn is one of the biggest bank-rollers of Democrat Party campaigns, spending $21.6 million on its programs in 2012. 100 percent of its PAC contributions went to Democrats.”
