Hyatt Hotels received a call from a Muslim social justice organization demanding that it cancel its agreement to host ACT for America’s annual conference in early September.
In the wake of recent online banishments of personalities and organizations deemed “hateful” by progressives via liberal pressure campaigns, Muslim Advocates wants the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City to cease being ACT for America’s host site this year.
The article goes on to state the following:
Muslim Advocates compared ACT for America to Richard Spencer’s white supremacist group that was banned from several hotel meeting sites last year.
The Hyatt rejected the call to cancel the agreement, according to a press statement sent to the Huffington Post back in February.
“The hotel does not unlawfully discriminate against groups who wish to hold lawful meetings at the hotel,” Derrick Morrow, area vice president and general manager at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City said.
Morrow added, “The views and opinions expressed by hotel guests or groups do not necessarily reflect those of the hotel, its owners or colleagues.”
ACT for America is an organization founded and chaired by Brigitte Gabriel. The upcoming conference includes speakers like Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, Republican Texas Rep. Brian Babin, Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta, Republican New York Rep. Peter King and former Navy SEAL Lt. Jason Redman.
“It’s deeply troubling that a major company like Hyatt would so grossly misstate its civil rights obligations,” said Public Advocacy Director for Muslim Advocates Scott Simpson. “Hyatt is trying to turn civil rights law on its head in order to justify hosting a group dedicated to advancing bigotry. While Airbnb and other major hotel chains have declined to host events by hate group, Hyatt is making an active choice to associate with this ideology. ”

Next month a @Hyatt hotel will host an anti-Muslim hate group’s annual conference. Hyatt told me it doesn’t “unlawfully discriminate” against such groups.
