On Friday, Senator and Presidential candidate Lindsey Graham told the Republican Leadership Conference:
“Everything I learned about Iranians I learned working in the pool room. I met a lot of liars, and I know Iranians are liars.”
NIAC has condemned the remarks and called for an apology and retraction. Sign the petition to call on Graham to apologize for and retract these bigoted comments.
Dear Senator Graham,
I am outraged by the repulsive comments you delivered for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in which you called Iranians liars.
The fact that you are basing important national security decisions on your experiences working in a pool hall is troubling enough. But stereotyping an entire people as “liars” based on these experiences is racist and completely unacceptable.
I call on you to immediately retract your comments and apologize for these bigoted remarks.
