Americans are getting informed about the dangers Islamists pose to civilized societies -- stealth infiltration of Sharia (Islamic "law") into our legal/social system, "honor" killings, homicide bombings, support for terrorism... There are too many apologists for Islamist outrages amongst our university academe, primary and secondary educators, media elite, government officials, etc. But the blogsphere, activist organizations, and concerned citizens have learned about Islam, and are fighting back against political correctness gone mad (though we still have a long way to go). Thanks to the efforts of the Florida Family Association, The Learning Channel has pulled its shameless whitewash of Islam, a TV show called, "All-American Muslim," off the air:
The controversial series, which faced protests from the Florida Family Association and a subsequent Lowe's boycott, will not return for a second season. ...
From the Florida Family Association:
... Florida Family Association urged advertisers in late 2011 and early 2012 to stop supporting The Learning Channel's new show All-American Muslim because it appeared to be propaganda designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law. The show profiled only Muslims that appeared to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish.
NINETY PERCENT (90%) of the companies that Florida Family Association targeted with emails did NOT advertise again during the January 8th episode and many of the latter episodes of All-American Muslim. One hundred one (101) out of one hundred twelve (112) companies did NOT advertise again. Certainly some of the companies stopped their advertisements because of seasonal buys. However, those seasonal buyers made up a very small minority of companies that did not return to the show.
That Ninety Percent (90%) and One Hundred 101 number would be higher if not for some companies that advertised during the last episode believing there would be no repercussions. ...
How dare The Learning Channel racially profile ‘All-American Muslim’ by taking it off the air. /sarc
Today the Learning Channel. Tomorrow the White House!
Will they replace the show with All-American Marxists?
It’s interesting to remember the liberals reaction to the sponsorship of this show.
Liberals were enraged and outraged (aren’t they always) when Lowe’s pulled out of advertising on All-American Muslim. How dare Lowe’s do that, screamed the liberals. It is racist,bigoted, etc. for a sponsor to decide to pull ads from programming based on concerns about content of a show.
But, in the case of Rush Limbaugh, the liberals are delighted that sponsors have pulled advertising from Limbaugh, over concerns about the content of his show.
So, what is the true liberal view of sponsor boycotts? Are sponsor boycotts good when sponsors object to programming? Or are they only okay when sponsors object to conservatism?
Who said, “I didn’t give ‘em hell: I gave ‘em truth, and it felt like hell.”(?) An honest depiction of Islam must include (1) A good muslim is duty bound to lie to unbelievers if the lie(s) benefit Islam, and (2) A very good muslim is duty bound to contribute to the chaos that should bring the twelfth mullah. These two things alone are enough to make Islam, like Marxism, an ideology which must never compromise, but must conquer. I’ve known individuals like this. Most of them are in prisons, graves, or mental wards, and rightly so. What to do, what to do?
