Pictures are worth a ten thousand words. Contrast these America’s Truth Forum Symposium bill board in Southlake, TX in the Dallas Forth Worth Metroplex. Note the very PC language changes in the two bill board design. The missing “I” word for Islamists says it all.
Note this comment from Bob Spencer at Jihad Watch:
Why the changes? The sales manager of a Dallas-area billboard company explained: “My boss wouldn’t go along with this type of advertising since we have an international clientele — some of whom might be on the other side.”
The other side? On the side of the jihadists?
Imagine an American billboard company in 1942 toning down an anti-Nazi billboard because, well, some of their clients are Nazis!
Hugh Fitzgerakd of Jihad Watch delves into the suppression of free speech in this Jihad Watch posting. He believes that the focus on terrorism, while important misses the opportunity to discuss the 800 pound elephant in the virtual room of ideas at the ‘next’ conference-cultural Jihad:
The next conference should not be about “Terrorism,” “Islamist” or otherwise. Instead, it should be all about the “instruments of Jihad.” And those instruments include, but are not limited to, terrorism. Subjects of talks should include, but not be limited to, these: “The Money Weapon, and How To Diminish It.” “Campaigns of Da’wa In The West, And How To Counter Them.” “Demographic Conquest by Muslims, and How To Halt, and Even Reverse It.”
Give the conference in New York.
Give a European version of the same conference in London, or Brussels, or Paris.
A tip of the chapeau to Stephanie.
