U.S : SIRIUS XM, stop promoting racist lies !

Steve Bannon at Sirius XM studios.

Dear friend,

I just started a petition titled "Sirius XM: Broadcasting White Supremacy!"

Donald Trump has waged war against our most fundamental human rights. Behind this white supremacist, xenophobic and dangerous agenda is Steve Bannon, founder, and the host of Breitbart Daily News, a show made possible with by profitable partnership with Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

 join us in telling Sirius XM to shut down Patriot XM radio and cut all ties with Steve Bannon!

Before Steve Bannon masterminded Donald Trump’s way into the White House, he tried to get Sarah Palin elected in 2012. He used Sirius XM Patriot station to promote a documentary he made about her, going on air praising her for pushing the “death panel myth” in 2009- a blatant lie that the Affordable Care Act incentivizes doctors to encourage patients “not worthy of healthcare” to make plans for death. Bannon made the documentary to rehabilitate Palin’s damaged reputation so that she could run for President. When that did not work, he set his sights on Trump, now equipped with a conservative radio enterprise to control the narrative.

SiriusXM Vice President for news and talk Dave Gorab called Steve Bannon's Breitbart News Daily “the conservative news show of record.”

Sirius XM, Stop promoting racist lies and enabling Donald Trump’s administration!.

Like all racists, Steve Bannon depends on lies to advance his agenda. Full of contradictions, Bannon portrays himself “a defender of working people against 'the corporate elites'”, even though he is a corporate powerbroker with a Harvard Business School MBA and professional and personal ties to the likes of Goldman Sachs.

Anyone who is elected to serve in a position of political leadership must, as a standard, be honest and accountable. Liars need not apply. Accountability is also what we expect of companies who rely on monthly subscribers to report a profit to their shareholders every quarter.

We are demanding that Sirius XM shut down Patriot radio and cut ties with Steve Bannon. We refuse to be ignored, and like Uber, we can and will hold any for-profit entities enabling Donald Trump accountable to a new standard.

Join me in urging Sirius XM radio to shut down XM Patriot station and keep white supremacy off the air!

Thank you,

Chris Pearce, a Sirius XM subscriber
