Moooooslems Still Don't Get It

This is funny! Of course the Muslim community wants to whine and complain, but then again, they have never had much of a sense of humor.

A car commercial proclaiming a jihad on the U.S. auto market and offering
“Fatwa Fridays” with free swords for the kids is offensive and should not be
aired, Muslim leaders said

Somebody is thinking. Commercials tend to get real boring and very very stale. My guess is that most in the Columbus area will know the name Dennis Mitsubishi. But here's the kicker....

He also said the Council on American-Islamic Relations would likely contact the
dealer to “offer some kind of cultural or sensitivity awareness training.”

Now that really makes Ol' BC feel better. Maybe they should offer sensitivity training to the jihadists who hack people's heads off on video tape so the world can watch. They could use a dose of "sensitivity." Mr. Dennis, it seems, just has a sense of humor.

Just a thought.

The problem I see is that it casts all Muslims in a bad light and is essentially propagating prejudice. If the ad had said, "Anyone who is Irish gets free whiskey and 100 dollars for entering into a fist fight," the Irish would have a reason to be upset. Propagating stereotypes in a humorous way is just another way to continue prejudice and racism without seeming to be responsible for the hateful and hurtful language. White boys don't understand who minority groups feel when this sort of language is used because they have never been a minority and targeted people.

The joke was stupid at best. It was a cheap shot that ruffled some feathers. Frankly, spewing out this sort of nonsense is indicative of extreme ignorance and we should be laughing at the stupidity of the ones who generated the "joke".

I don't think Christians would be too happy either if the ad had said that Christians were declaring war on the auto market so all patrons were to get hammers and nails for crucifixions.

My guess is a helluva lot more Christians would have chuckled. From the reaction to the Pope's comments in the Muslim corners of the world, it appears the quotation had merit, and thus stereotypes are born.
