Taking note that actress Lindsay Lohan had deleted all of the photos from her Instagram account, replacing them with an Islamic greeting, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch wrote an article about it for the publication, The Hill. Spencer had opined, "why Lindsay Lohan’s rumored conversion to Islam could be a worse life choice than all the drugs and drinking and everything else that has made her notorious."
The Hill deleted Spencer's article, caving to Tweets like a bunch of cowards.
Personally, I don't see anything wrong with pointing out the fact that Lohan, who lives in Dubai, would be making a huge mistake by converting to Islam, much as Austrian teens Samra Kesinovic and Sabina Selimovic did when they ran away from home to marry a jihadist and join ISIS.

Their story is similar to that of another bleeding-heart Liberal, an Italian woman named Pippa Bacca, who foolishly thought she could safely promote world peace by hitchhiking across the Middle-east in a wedding dress. She was also raped and murdered.
Spencer's article merely explained what life for Muslim women is really like, but those simple truths - taken from the Koran itself - proved too much for snowflakes and terrorists who began a Tweet-jihad aimed at The Hill, which removed the piece without a fight. So much for journalistic integrity, not to mention intestinal fortitude.
Here is a sample of the "hateful" article Spencer wrote:
"Lohan has fueled this kind of speculation in the past, saying in 2015: “My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Qur’an and I brought it to New York because I was learning. It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”

"She didn’t say what “true meaning” she found in Qur’anic injunctions sanctioning wife-beating (Qur’an 4:34), devaluing of women’s testimony (Qur’an 2:282) and inheritance rights (Qur’an 4:11), allowance for polygamy (Qur’an 4:3), or mandate of warfare against and subjugation of unbelievers (Qur’an 9:29), but that’s just the beginning of the absurdity."

I think not.
The idea that the "feelings" of this group, or that constituency, trump the truth has neutered real journalism in our politically correct society. The fact is that the truth is often ugly, violent, and quite frankly, revolting. Nevertheless, it must be told. Journalism is supposed to be dispassionate, a profession dedicated to telling the truth and letting the chips fall where they may.
Hopefully, with the election of the decidedly non-politically correct Donald Trump to the highest office in the land, a man who is not afraid to correctly call CNN "fake news," those who hold themselves out to be journalists will once again find their balls and shout Truth to Power, not to mention the People to whom they owe it, instead of bowing to the feigned butthurt of those whom the truth exposes.
