Tell the Apple iTunes Store to Remove Anti-Immigrant iPhone Application

Want to keep in touch with bigots? There's an app for that

NumbersUSA -- a white nationalist hate organization with a special hatred for immigrants -- has just launched a brand new iPhone application.

Apple -- a company that usually exercises due diligence in screening its applications -- has allowed NumbersUSA a market to spread its hatred and lies. This is the same company that rejected a single-payer healthcare iPhone application last year because it was "politically charged."

Maybe I missed a memo and Apple thinks it is alright to host and advance the agenda of a politically charged right-wing extremist organization.

Change.org users should stand up and say that "Applications that support anti-immigrant ferver have no place in the iTunes Store." It's not just offensive -- it is bad business practice.

After signing this petition, iPhone and iPad users should report this app online or call Apple's public relations line at (408) 974-2042. Let Apple know that providing a platform for bigotry is never okay.

      White supremacy groups are terrible. They deserve no one's respect. However, they are humans too. All human beings deserve the right to free speech.

      Free speech exists to protect not just them, but us. When speech is forbidden, violence is the only way to communicate. If we want a peaceful society, we must allow all speech to be said, even if it is hateful. If we deny the unconditional, universal right to free speech, would it become hateful to others if we advocated for social change? Would others call petitions to end slavery and grotesque tax breaks hate speech? I don't care what the message is. Free speech is NON NEGOTIABLE.

      Our family owns three Apple computers and four iPhones. However with this new app I am ashamed to let anyone see that I am using an apple product. I will certainly make no further purchases from iTunes until this anti immigrant app is removed.
