Analysis / Bias

In review, Shoebat publishes a variety of conspiracy themed articles such as this The 2020s Will Be A Decade Of Preparation For WW3. However, the central theme of the website is to promote anti-Islam propaganda such as this Islamic Terrorists Murder 57 People In Highly Resource Rich Area In Congo. Other conspiracies promoted are birtherism regarding President Obama and Christian Supremecy where they dream that President Trump will kill Muslims. Finally, they are listed as an anti-Islam hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
