Miss Puerto Rico Suspended After Speaking out Against Muslims

Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended indefinitely from Miss America competition after she fired off a series of anti-Muslim tweets in response to the “We Are All Muslim” protests led by director Michael Moore.

The 20-year-old Velez directed her angry tweets at the film director — who created a buzz last week when he held up a sign reading “We Are All Muslim” outside of Trump Tower and shared an open letter online claiming that, unlike Trump, “we are not a country of angry white guys” . . .

Velez’s remarks prompted the Miss Puerto Rico Organization to issue a statement calling her comments a poor representation of “the integrity and esteem of our program.”

“Miss Velez’s actions were in contradiction to the organization, and therefore as a consequence of her actions, she has been suspended indefinitely,” the statement read. “The Miss Puerto Rico Organization will not tolerate any actions or behavior contrary to the Miss Puerto Rico Organization.” (Read more from “Miss Puerto Rico Suspended After Speaking out Against Muslims” HERE)

    Yo! MIckey! Newsflash! We’re not a country of fat white liberal film makers either.

    A huge majority of people around the world agree with Miss Puerto Rico! Liberal PC nonsense has invaded every aspect of our cultures! It has to stop! She is the winner here and has a right to voice her opinion!

    Islamic terror Jihad is codified in the Koran and other
    Islamic law. The only way to ever solve this problem is to reform the religion to eliminate those portions that call for this type of Jihad.

    A large portion of Muslims declare that Islam cannot be
    reformed because even those portions calling for the subjugation of all non-Muslims through conversion to Islam, paying blackmail or death are the word of their god and cannot ever be reformed. Included in that Jihad is using terror, rape, sex slavery and genocide.

    The groups that deny there can ever be any reformation are
    and will ever be incompatible with the rest of the world.

    Therefore there is only one solution:

    Separate Muslims into two groups, those who believe that
    Islam can and should be reformed and those who declare it can never be reformed.

    Then totally isolate the non-reformers and totally destroy them if
    they attempt to force their ideology on anyone else.

      Right on. I wrote:

      Islamic Terrorism
      Neither the President nor any of the candidates have identified the root cause of the problem we are facing from Islamic terrorism. They are fixated on destroying yet another subsidiary of Islam which will accomplish absolutely nothing to make us safer. Fighting such a war without understanding the root cause of the terrorism will only serve to bankrupt the USA in which case the terrorists win. So what is the root of the evil?
      The problem isn’t “radical Islam”, it isn’t ISIS, nor is it Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, the PLO or any of the other “Islamic terrorist organizations.” Even if all of the aforementioned were obliterated to the last man, woman and child, the teachings within Islam will in short order indoctrinate a new crop of fanatic killers. The fundamental problem is ISLAM itself because it isn’t a religion of peace, nor is it compatible with our Constitutional Republic and bill of rights. In fact the Muslims that just watch the terrorist acts and that don’t take an active part in them are in the eyes of Islam not “moderate Muslims,” they are cowards and also bad Muslims for not joining the Islamic moral imperative of Jihad. The true Muslims are the Jihadists, murderers, and rapists… because they follow the letter of Islam. They are not a fringe radical sect as political correctness dictates, but devout Muslims that have for centuries been a cancer on civilization. In its zeal for oil, western civilization has unwittingly uncorked the evil Genii which may well require WWIII in order to defeat it
      Recognizing Islam for what it is, (the blueprint for a theocratic form of government, and a barbaric 7’th century legal framework disguised as a religion) isn’t it lunacy to accept more Muslims into the USA without extraordinary measures being taken to vet them including but not limited to passing a lie detector test? If they support Sharia Law which is the antithesis to our Constitution, then they must not be admitted. If they believe infidels must convert to Islam or be killed, then they must not be admitted. Passing a lie detector test is no different than that required of those seeking certain government jobs.
      Given the ferocity and barbarism of recent Islamic attacks on western civilization it would be prudent to recognize the importation of Muslims as being no different than welcoming Islamic “smart bombs” (human Cruise Missiles) into our heartland. It is painfully obvious that we have little chance of detecting and thwarting all Islamic terror attacks, and furthermore we can little afford to divert financial resources from other important domestic priorities.
      Lastly Congress must define RELIGION since it is not defined in the Constitution. I propose that religion be defined as a belief system which requires tolerance and acceptance of those that have a different belief system. Islam unless rewritten would not qualify as a religion and as such those that subscribe to it can be excluded from this country, Mosques would be taxed as ordinary property and would have no special constitutional protections. To assure that the next 1400 years will be better than the last, Islam can and must be fixed by deleting the verses that incite violence and Jihad. Those that would oppose doing so would be exposed as either being jihadists or those susceptible to jihadist indoctrination. In addition a verse should be added requiring that those believing in other religions are to be accepted and tolerated. And then there is the issue of women’s rights and LGBT acceptance…

    do not take the decision of the panty waist cowards to heart Destiny…we know that you are a winner and an adult….the punks, whiners, and the clowns that think they are “enlightened” are not Real Americans, you are right and it causes them to have both of their remaining brain cells to swell and give off a very repulsive odor….

  • Bailey

    So telling the truth gets you booted out of the Miss America pageant. No big surprise there. Bravo Miss Puerto Rico, for telling the truth. We need more like you. The Miss America pageant can go to hell.

  • Jim Britt

    EVERY word she says is the TRUTH and liberals HATE the truth.

  • Geo

    If Trump were still running it I bet this would not be an issue!

    • Walker

      Trump IS still running, and is far ahead of the others. I don’t get your point.

      • Erik Thorsen

        I believe Geo meant the “Miss America” operation with respect to Mr. Trump.

  • annie1945

    What would you expect from a guy who doesn’t know where he was raised. Claims he was raised in Flint. He was born there and raised in Davison, MI. Not that they’re particularly proud of that fact either. For some reason a hockey player made the hall of small town fame but not this liberal nasty.

  • gretagarbo123

    At least someone has a set of b ‘ s. Bigger than any of the males in House and Senate. Good for her for having the courage to speak up. Someone has to stop being politically correct.

  • gretagarbo123

    Boycott Miss America Pageant for denying her free speech. I’m sure they are fine with lard a. Michael Moore’s despicable comments. He can say anything he wants and the media laps it up. I’m sure this young woman has a great future ahead of her without the Miss America Pageant.

    • facebook is Dero

      why did you go and make me visualize Michael Moore in a Mr. American lineup wearing a bikini.? I hadn’t finished breakfast yet! 🙁

  • Sailblazer

    Liberals attack the precious right of free speech … and the TRUTH

  • Bravo Miss Puerto Rico! Unfortunately the other victim here is free speech. If it doesn’t fall in line with current PC BS then “they” have to shut you down. The truth cannot be allowed by liberals!

  • NoBamaNoMo

    More than ever we need Trump.
    TRUMP 2016!!!

  • Marc Goldstone

    Miss Puerto Rico is absolutely justified and correct. Too bad Trump doesn’t still own the pageant!

    The entire Miss America pageant has a liberal political agenda. If you don’t tow the line, you aren’t welcome. Obviously they can’t handle the truth, because the only thing Miss Puerto Rico did was speak the truth. So typical of liberal organizations- truth is only allowed when it fits their agenda.

  • ltfbhh

    While the problem with Islam may be fairly new to most of us, it has existed ever since the “religion” was founded. Thomas Jefferson was well acquainted with the evils of Islam and had to fight a war against them to keep them from capturing and enslaving our seamen. It is, always has been, and always will be the way of Islam. You can’t just leave them alone and expect them to do the same. And for all those liberals who condemn slavery in America so much, but seem to love the Muslims; Muslims were involved in the African slave trade long before the Europeans or Americans ever were and continued long after we ended it.

  • cantonst

    Moore has always been delusional and he evidently doesn’t know the first thing about Islam. The silence of ‘moderate’ Muslims condemns them.

  • Bob Trower

    That’s interesting. So miss Universe is not allowed to think for herself?

  • Jon Wilford

    Anyone who doesn’t “comply” with the ILK of the left (think like we are conditioning you to think, respond how we are conditioning you to respond, act like how we are conditioning you to act) will be punished personally, socially and financially. God Bless Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez for speaking the truth in a PC world turned on its head that supports corruption and perversion… THE ILK OF THE LEFT.

  • Paul

    My only disappointment with her is that she backed down! Had she stood for her beliefs, she would’ve won the people’s support. Since she backed down and apologized, she became a loser.

  • John

    She’s the big winner here, Miss America pageant obviously are the losers. She’s gonna have a great career as a model, actress or whatever she wants to do. Remember the name Destiny Velez is “destined for greatness”… 🙂
