WASHINGTON – Just two hours after WND reported MoveOn.org still had an active petition calling on the U.S. government not to designate the jihadist group Boko Haram a terrorist organization, the leftist website suddenly removed the petition.
Boko Haram is the very same group that has enraged the world by kidnapping more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria and threatening to sell them into slavery.
The petition – which received its first signature on June 20, 2012, and continued to be signed at the time of this report – was uncovered by Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, who asked MoveOn.org to apologize for hosting an online petition opposing a terrorist designation for Boko Haram.
The page where the petition had been for two years now says “Petition Not Available. The content of this petition is under review.”
Before it was yanked, the petition had well more than 100 signatures, with more than a dozen people signing it just on Friday.
