Right-wing press tried shaming a footballer for being a ‘devout Muslim’. He’s actually a devout Christian.

The right-wing press have taken Muslim-bashing to extraordinary lengths in recent years, but their latest story about new Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku is utterly incredible. Mainly because it is a complete lie. 

The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Express and The Mirror claimed that Belgian International Lukaku – a recent £75m signing from Everton – was not allowed to accept the Heineken Man of the Match award due to him being a ‘devout Muslim’.

The only problem with these claims, however, is that the supposedly ‘trained journalists’ in the mainstream media failed to spot that Romelu Lukaku is actually a Christian.

If any of these alleged journalists bothered to do the slightest ounce of research, they would have stumbled on the fact that Lukaku regularly celebrates goals by making a Christian cross sign. 

Furthermore, the fake news journalists also somehow failed to spot the fact that Lukaku featured in a prominent article posted last year in Christian Today titled “Five Christian superstars of Euro 2016″.

What’s even more embarrassing for that bastion of truth, The S*n, they actually ran a story about Lukaku in 2014 specifically about the fact he was a Christian

It is utterly astounding that alternative media outlets such as our own are constantly demonised as running fake news, as well as having our reporters belittled for not being ‘trained journalists’, when it is so patently obvious that the mainstream media runs completely fake news such as this on a regular basis. 

Just today Evolve Politics reported on the fact that alternative independent left-wing sites in America are being indisputably censored by Google in their supposed crack down on ‘fake news’.

The fact that Google is penalising independent sites, rather than the true purveyors of fake news – the mainstream media – is clear evidence that the true aim of this supposed crack down is the establishment’s attempt to censor and eliminate any competition to their lapdogs in the entirely complicit corporate media. 

What’s more, The Daily Mail STILL haven’t removed their article from their website – meaning they are literally still reporting 3-day-old fake news as if it was true. This despite the fact that the comments section is completely littered with comments calling out their lies.

It seems that Google are more than happy to promote fake news as long as it comes from the Establishment’s approved list of compliant lapdogs.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
