Still busy with finals, etc. Please watch the following piece by the Daily Show on idiocy arising from TLC's All American Muslim. Here is the link.
Beginning to wonder, however, whether someone at TLC has paid the Florida Family Association to object. It's just too ridiculous. Alas.
Been a long time since we rapped at you, we know, light posting lately on account of finals, deadlines, holidays.
Please enjoy this item from the Huffington Post:
Lowe's, the national hardware chain, has pulled commercials from future episodes of "All-American Muslim," a TLC reality-TV show, after protests by Christian groups.
The Florida Family Association, a Tampa Bay group, has led a campaign urging companies to pull ads on "All-American Muslim."
"'All-American Muslim' is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law," the Florida group asserts in a letter it asks members to send to TLC advertisers.
The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to the liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish," the FFA's letter continues.
Can't tell if Christian or just trolling.
