Owen mentions how the Sun has systematically whipped up hatred against Muslims, migrants, refugees, LGTBQ people, and the left. This thread highlights the hatred whipped up against Muslims /1
The Sun had a front page: "1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for jihadis". They were ordered to admit British Muslims story was 'significantly misleading' /2
In a week where the Sunday Times reported 40 neo-Nazis were being investigated amidst fears they are plotting terrorist attacks against Muslims, the Sun's Kavanagh asked readers for a solution for "The Muslim Problem"

Famously, Katie Hopkins dehumanised migrants by calling them "cockroaches" in the Sun.

ICYMI: Stig Abell was Managing Editor of The Sun at the time /4

The Sun has lied about Muslims e.g. falsely suggesting 2 Muslims were involved in a "Trojan Horse" plot in Oldham (the paper was forced to apologise & pay substantial damages for this lie) /5

The Sun published a series of anti-Muslim bigotry from Rod Liddle (noting he has done this in other papers as well) /6

Disgustingly, the Sun had a cut out and keep guide showing what terrorists "look like" - making it clear that Muslims who look like that are potential terrorists. Appalling. /7

ICYMI: A senior member of The Sun's production staff was suspended from his job after inviting a Muslim colleague to "shove your Ramadan where the Sun don't shine". From Private Eye. /8
The Sun lied by falsely claiming that fasting in Ramadan was the reason for a train crash. They were forced into a correction. /9

The Sun lied about the largest umbrella body of Muslim organisations, the MCB - and later acknowledged their error /10

The Sun has consistently encouraged division e.g. on Christian children being fostered by Muslim parents, which the Fostering Network rightly rebutted
Really could go on...lots of other examples on my Twitter feed. And other groups have been demonised (apologies for not covering them in detail).

Just to end ICYMI: the Sun published neo-Nazi propaganda of a "genocide of white farmers" in South Africa
