Americans are getting informed about the dangers Islamists pose to civilized societies — threats like stealth infiltration of Sharia (Islamic “law”) into our legal/social system, “honor” killings, homicide bombings, intolerance, 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. …
