Charlottesville City Council proclamation honors Khans - Richmond Times-Dispatch: Virginia News

Interestingly, the only critic of the Khans quoted in this article is named “Stefanie” - and that’s also the name of the person who contacted the Khans to ask about the club, in Chuck’s post.

The council’s proclamation drew criticism from one member of the community, Stefanie Marshall, of Albemarle County.

Noting that the community previously has recognized and honored fallen soldiers from the Charlottesville community, Marshall said the council has failed to recognize other Gold Star families in the area in a similar manner.

“It seems to me that in order for a Gold Star family to be honored and recognized by the current City Council, they must speak at the Democratic National Convention. This is not appropriate, nor is it acceptable,” Marshall said.

“It reeks of choosing to honor specific families or individuals because they fit your narrative,” she said.

Chuck’s post:

We reached out to Khizr Khan and his two sons for comment. They denied any such activity. This is what they said:

Dear Stephanie:

I spoke with both of my sons.

Eldest does not live with us for the last six years. Youngest with his wife lives with us. Have never had any such activity or email.

Also I asked about the the Foundation site and my eldest son confirmed that site from day one since 2004 is hosted by a third party service provider not us.

Please advise.

Thank you.

My spidey sense is tingling.

They (Chucky and his ilk)feel emboldened by the fact that Ahmed Mohamed and his father had to leave the United States. The Muslim family felt threatened. I get it, and I’m ashamed.

I heard others saying he’d written something slimy (as usual), but I didn’t want to dirty my mind & eyes with whatever he’d written as I consider him beneath contempt. Thank you for this post though—I’m glad you looked into it and caught his lie straightaway.
