Shireen Qudosi: Head Of Clarion Project's Preventing Violent Extremism Education Program: 'I Identify With Malcolm X'

February 12, 2020

Shireen Qudosi self proclaimed Muslim "Reformer" and head of education for the Clarion Project's PVE program identifies with violent extremist Malcolm X! The PVE is a Clarion funded freak show and farce which includes "ex" ISIS Burqa Bitch Tanya Joya and "ex" Skinhead Frankie Meeink among others which purports to 'prevent radicalisation' which never goes near a mosque or Islamic institution to deliver their message.

"I am for violence if non-violence means we continue postponing a solution to the American black man's problem just to avoid violence."

@ShireenQudosi

Not gonna lie, I identify a hell of a lot more with Malcolm X than I do with MLK. And I think of lot of other people do too, it's just not popular to say it.

I don't Malcolm X as a outstretched fist but I hear you. I see him very differently.

MIM: Malcolm X's urging to "swing up on some freedom" was a reference to black boxer Muhammad Ali aka Cassius Clay who used his fists to obtain profit and world wide fame.

"This afternoon we want to talk about the ballot or the bullet. The ballot or the bullet explains itself...

...You can't sing up on freedom. But you can swing up on some freedom. [cheering]Cassius Clay can sing. But singing didn't help him to become the heavyweight champion of the world. Swinging helped him. [applause]"

Agreed, and we'll never know what could have been. Same — I saw a lot of my own story and a shared spirit.

"...But Malcolm X was anything but mainstream and the passage of a half century should not soften attitudes toward him. To the end, he remained a radical, polarizing, bigoted figure, Martin Luther King's evil Doppelgänger. To support this description, recall two notorious statements. The first dates from Dec. 1, 1963, shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, when Malcolm X responded with the comment that, "Being an old farm boy myself, chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad; they've always made me glad."

The second came in the course of a meeting with the Ku Klux Klan (itself a insight into his extremism) intended to win white racist support for the NoI black separatism project. According to a FBI report, Malcolm X assured the Klansmen that Jews were behind the integration movement they both despised. Joshua Muravchik concludes from this incident that Malcolm X "was a vociferous anti-Semite in both public and in private."

Malcolm X should accurately be remembered as the extremist he was. (February 21, 2015)

When Malcolm X Met the Nazis

A look at the strange alliance between the Nation of Islam and the American Nazi Party.

Remarkably, the NOI had a history of such partnerships. Six months earlier, Muhammad had sent Malcolm X to a top-secret meeting with the Atlanta Ku Klux Klan. In a throwback to Marcus Garvey's 1922 Klan summit, the two groups brokered a bizarre truce: local mosque safety in return for NOI support on racial separation.

MIM: The Clarion Project which receives a great deal of Jewish funding should be roundly condemned for promoting and giving Muslims and other opportunists 'professional legitimacy' and a platform. As can be seen by the perfidy and hypocrisy of Shireen Qudosi.Other Clarion advisors are Muslim Deformers Zuhdi Jasser and Raheel Raza who. like Qudosi, falsely claim that Islam is not a violent religion! https://clarionproject.org/clarion-project-advisory-board/

"Other programs against ideological radicalization have looked to countering the problem. We're looking to prevent it from ever happening.

By educating and working closely with professionals and communities, we can empower each other to recognize and safeguard children and youth against hate and alienation.

Through Clarion Project's Preventing Violent Extremism training sessions, we deliver free information and training programs directly to your organization and community."

Outreach Effort Launches in 21 Cities to Prevent Violent Extremism

Communities Impacted by Terrorism and Hate Crimes Prioritized

Public Education Campaign Features Free Training Program and PSA of Mother Who Lost Her Son to Extremism

Clarion Project

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Human rights organization, Clarion Project, will launch a national, public education, outreach campaign across the country this coming Monday to combat the rise of hate crimes and reduce the threat of homegrown terrorism. Clarion Project will work with the local community to train leaders in identifying and addressing risk factors. Clarion Project also provides schools a series of workshops that offer a positive counter-message for youth against the lure of extremist ideologies.

Prevent Violent Extremism

The effort named Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) is modeled after the group's successful efforts in Austin, TXand Minneapolis, MN and features a training program for parents, teachers, local officials and law enforcement.

The PVE training emphasizes the fact that radicalization can affect all children at any age. A child can be radicalized by gangs, race supremacists, religious extremists and social militarization.

"Over the last 30 to 40 years, extremism patterns in the United States have shifted between ideologies. Since 2010, we've seen ideologies surfacing simultaneously with increased lethality, while forecasts over the next 10-20 years present a frightening scenario driven by increased levels of dehumanization and polarization," says Shireen Qudosi, Director of PVE Education.

"This is the world our kids are living in today. Every parent, every educator, and community leader deserve to be prepared. Every child deserves to be protected. On November 20, 1989, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child reinforced the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by recognizing that childhood is entitled to special care. It's time we fulfilled that duty to our children."

The training follows a three-stage strategy:

  • Understanding how radicalization and recruitment processes work.
  • Identifying the vulnerabilities in a child that could potentially draw him or her toward extremism.
  • Presenting a lecture series on PVE that puts academic and field research right into the hands of the communities most impacted and at risk.

The effort also features a 90 second PSA featuring the heartbreaking story of Christianne Boudreau, whose son was recruited online by radical Islamist extremists, ran away, and later died fighting in Syria with ISIS.

MIM: Trevor FitzGibbon of FitzGibbon Media an uber left propagandist whose clients included the terror tied Islamic Relief organisation was behind the press release put out by the Clarion Project announcing the launch of their Preventing Violent Extremism program.

"FitzGibbon Media was a high-powered left-of-center PR firm working for major liberal clients like MoveOn.org and Planned Parenthood founded by Trevor FitzGibbon. Trevor FitzGibbon was a former state-level communications director for President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign.[1]

FitzGibbon Media was quickly shuttered in 2015 after FitzGibbon Media staffers accused Trevor FitzGibbon of multiple allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault.[2] The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia elected not to file charges against Trevor FitzGibbon, who went on to found a new PR firm called Mission Critical Media and a group called Defend our Daughters ostensibly intended to defend the "vulnerable in the workplace."[3]

Work, Clients, and Projects

FitzGibbon gained a national reputation as then-candidate Barack Obama's New Mexico communications director during the 2008 Presidential campaign.[4] Before then, he had worked at Fenton Communications, a liberal public relations firm with offices in Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco with clients across the left-of-center world including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to MoveOn.org to theTransgender Law Center.[5]

His first client after joining Fenton around 2002 was MoveOn.org. FitzGibbon's initial advertising campaign began being as an ad in the New York Times and eventually ballooned into a television commercial after his success in raising small donations online.[6] Fenton Communications stated that "FitzGibbon's messaging and PR efforts on behalf of MoveOn.org have helped position the online advocacy group as a national political force in American life."[7]

After leaving Fenton Communications in 2008 and working on the Obama campaign, FitzGibbon founded FitzGibbon Media. The company quickly established itself as the go to public relations firm for the progressive movement, signing major clients from MoveOn.Org to Planned Parenthood[8] to the embassy of the repressive socialist Venezuelan regime of Nicolas Maduro.[9]

FitzGibbon Media enjoyed an impressive reputation in the progressive world, with one commentator suggesting the firm received the "first call whenever a huge progressive moment [was] about to happen anywhere in the country."[10]

Before being taken down, the firm's website claimed that "FitzGibbon strategists can transform a client's news into a story on the front page of Huffington Post, book your principals on MSNBC, and schedule interviews on NPR." In 2013, then-CEO of FitzGibbon client Rebuild the Dream Natali Foster said, "the FitzGibbon Media team has a rare knack for spotting what's newsworthy, and the amazing relationships to help it get into stories and on the air."[11]

The firm ran the social media account of convicted WikiLeaks collaborator Chelsea (née Bradley) Manning while Manning served prison time, typing out posts dictated by the convicted spy via telephone while reporting responses back. FitzGibbon Media also worked with WikiLeaks to arrange public defense of Edward Snowden when he was hiding in Hong Kong.[12]

By 2015, FitzGibbon's company employed 30 people with offices in London, New York, San Francisco, and Washington.[13]

Below is a list of major FitzGibbon Media clients:[14]

FitzGibbon also represented Amnesty International,[15] the Center for American Progress, NARAL (formerly the National Abortion Rights Action League), UltraViolet, and the Venezuelan government.[16]

Sexual Harassment Controversy and Closure

FitzGibbon Media's swift decline began in December 2015 when an avalanche of accusations of sexual harassment and assault against the company's president, Trevor Fitzgibbon, quickly forced the progressive public relations firm to close up shop. Sierra Pedraja, now an editor for Detroit's NBC affiliate,[17] was searching for a full-time job when a friend working at FitzGibbon media introduced her to the company's president, Trevor FitzGibbon. Pedraja was then invited to a social gathering with the team that evening in a hotel lobby, where FitzGibbon allegedly commented on Pedraja's beauty and asked her if she wanted to have any "fun" while he was in Austin.[18]

According to Pedraja, FitzGibbon then asked her if she wanted to meet alone at the hotel, which she declined. After the retreat, FitzGibbon allegedly contacted Pedraha requesting "maxim" style photos, which Pedraja also declined to send.[19]

Pedraja relayed her story to FitzGibbon Media employees, which caused other women to recall similar experiences where FitzGibbon had invited them to his hotel room, requested pictures, and asked for hugs. Another woman reported that FitzGibbon had once groped her breast while she was on a business call.[20]

FitzGibbon even allegedly behaved inappropriately with clients, including allegedly contacting an employee of MoveOn.org to ask her if she was married or had a boyfriend, or to request her to send him pictures.[21]

FitzGibbon had previously faced several accusations of sexual harassment while working for Fenton Communications. The firm retained Fenton for several more years, keeping him "closely monitored," according to reports. Then-CEO of Fenton Communications Bill Werde said that there were "no other complaints brought to the company's attention" for the rest of FitzGibbon's tenure, which ended in 2008.[22]

The torrent of accusations in 2015 culminated in the reporting of "over a half dozen incidents of sexual harassment and at least two involving sexual assault committed by Trevor FitzGibbon against his own employees" according to a statement issued at the time by FitzGibbon Media employees.[23]

FitzGibbon responded claiming that "the allegations against me are a distraction to the mission at hand" and that because of an "irreconcilable difference has arisen between the FitzGibbon team and me…we had no choice but to make the difficult decision to close FitzGibbon Media."[24]

The company determined they could not continue without revenue generated by Trevor FitzGibbon personally, and, after formally taking a leave of absence on a Monday, December 14, the firm closed on Thursday, December 17. The entire staff was laid off without bonuses or severance, receiving paycheck only until the end of the year.[25]

No criminal charges or civil complaints were filed against FitzGibbon or the firm.

FitzGibbon's Latest Projects

After the charges were dropped and in an apparent effort to publicly clear his name, FitzGibbon announced two new ventures, Mission Critical Media, a new PR firm, and Dignity for our Daughters, an organization created to advocate for the "vulnerable in the workplace" and create a "culture where women can flourish both in and out of the workplace."[26]

A former FitzGibbon Media client, the left-wing feminist organization UltraViolet, issued a press release listing 72 liberal organizations that pledged not to work with Trevor FitzGibbon or to "financially support his new firm, Mission Critical Media."[27] Signatories included:[28]

Carl Goldberg Calls PVE Program A Farce: "Clarion Needs To Deal With The Koran & Sunnah"
November 12, 2019

MIM: Below is Islam expert Carl Goldberg's letter to the contact person on the press release announcing the Clarion Project's "Outreach Effort Launches In 21 Cities To Prevent Violent Extremism" lead By Shireen Qudosi.

Trevor,

I hate to throw cold water on your PVE project, but it is a total waste of time and money. This is especially so if you put Shireen Qudosi in charge of it. She has no idea what causes Islamic radicalization because she has no idea about Islam.

Simply put, Islamic radicalization takes place when a Moslem starts reading the Koran and finds out what his god really wants him to do. At that point, the Moslem is faced with a moral choice: Either to deliberately ignore the jihadist commands in the Koran, or to follow them. Shireen Qudosi will never tell you that. She wants you to think that Islam is basically just fine and that the "radicals" are misinterpreting the Koran and the Sunnah. In fact, the radicals are following it, not misinterpreting it.

Clarion Project needs to deal with the Koran and the Sunnah instead of going along with phonies like Shireen Qudosi, Zuhdi Jasser, Raheel Raza and other nice moderate Moslems who do not follow Islam but who pretend that they do. They, with your help, are misleading the public about the threat from Islam, itself, as taught in all the mosques. They are "moderate Moslems" precisely because they do not follow Islam as set forth in the Koran and the Sunnah.

There is no such thing as "moderate Islam". As Turkish president Erdogan famously said, "Islam cannot be classified as moderate or not," ... "These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it."

Clarion needs to take this seriously and stop pretending that "moderate Moslems" indicate the existence of a moderate Islam, or that they can have any influence on the Moslem community.
