Golden Globe-winning writer apologizes for “Islamophobic” tweet that revealed he saw NJ Muslims cheering 9/11

Golden Globe-winning writer apologizes for “Islamophobic” tweet that revealed he saw NJ Muslims cheering 9/11 JAN 12, 2019 9:00 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS “Nick Vallelonga, the Golden Globe-winning writer of the critically acclaimed drama ‘Green Book,’ has apologized for a 2015 tweet containing a false, Islamophobic statement.” The wording is true to form for Leftist propagandist CNN, but were Vallelonga’s words really “Islamophobic”? In the tweet, sent to then-candidate Donald Trump, Vallelonga claimed he saw “Muslims in Jersey City cheering” when the World Trade Center towers collapsed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Vallelonga’s Twitter account was deleted after the tweet resurfaced this week. So did Vallelonga flat-out lie to malign Muslims when he tweeted out what he saw? Or did he perhaps think he saw cheering that was not really happening? Strange. But Vallelonga sure followed up with what Leftists and Muslim lobbies such as CAIR want: he sank into dhimmitude, as most people do when bullied by the Islamic lobby-Leftist alliance, and groveled, pleading for forgiveness. At that point, truth be damned. Donald Trump back in 2015 was also lambasted by the Leftist media for reporting that, Breitbart Provided 9 documentetatons', he, too, saw cheering, only, Trump didn’t back down (no surprise!): Trump said he was getting an “unbelievable response” from “hundreds” of people who told him they also saw televised Muslim celebrations of the 11 September 2001 attacks in Manhattan. “I saw it. So many people saw it. And, so, why would I take it back? I’m not going to take it back,” said Trump. In a revealing followup, Breitbart provided nine pieces of documentation that vindicated Trump’s claim of Muslims celebrating 9/11, including a “CBS News report about “swarms of suspects” cheering 9/11 from rooftops. Vallelonga should have stood by his statement.
“Green Book” writer apologizes after anti-Muslim tweet surfaces,” by Sandra Gonzalez, CNN, January 11, 2019: (CNN)Nick Vallelonga, the Golden Globe-winning writer of the critically acclaimed drama “Green Book,” has apologized for a 2015 tweet containing a false, Islamophobic statement. In the tweet, sent to then-candidate Donald Trump, Vallelonga claimed he saw “Muslims in Jersey City cheering” when the World Trade Center towers collapsed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Vallelonga’s Twitter account was deleted after the tweet resurfaced this week. “I want to apologize. I spent my life trying to bring this story of overcoming differences and finding common ground to the screen, and I am incredibly sorry to everyone associated with ‘Green Book,'” Vallelonga said in a statement Thursday via a representative. “I especially deeply apologize to the brilliant and kind Mahershala Ali, and all members of the Muslim faith, for the hurt I have caused.” Ali, who stars in “Green Book” alongside Viggo Mortensen, is Muslim. Representatives for Ali have not returned CNN’s request for comment. The movie follows the friendship between celebrated pianist Dr. Donald Shirley (Ali) and his rough-around-the-edges driver Tony Vallelonga (Mortensen). Tony Vallelonga was Nick Vallelonga’s father. “I am also sorry to my late father who changed so much from Dr. Shirley’s friendship and I promise this lesson is not lost on me,” Vallelonga added. “‘Green Book’ is a story about love, acceptance and overcoming barriers, and I will do better.” “Green Book” won the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical on Sunday, but its path to accolades has encountered controversy. The film has been accused of exaggerating the pair’s friendship and criticized by some of Shirley’s surviving relatives. Mortensen was also the target of ire when, during a post-screening discussion in November, he used the N-word while trying to draw a contrast between the period in which the film is set and present day. He later apologized….
