The Amish never harmed you. They never flew planes into buildings and mass-murdered 3,000 Americans. They never shot up and massacred at Fort Hood or tried to blow up a plane with their shoes or underwear or tried to blow up Times Square.
And, yet, tonight your tax dollars are being used to defame and denigrate them during three hours of Palestinian Broadcasting System (PBS) programming, “The Amish: Shunned – American Experience“–a profile of Amish children who left the faith and how they’ve been “shunned” as a result. Guess what? None of ’em were beheaded or honor-killed. Imagine that. Think you’ll ever see PBS do three hours . . . or even just one, entitled, “The Muslims: Shunned – American Experience”? Not a chance. Only Christians (and Jews and Israel) need apply for PBS abuse. Your tax dollars at work. Here is Al-PBS’ BS summary of the show:
What is it like to be cut off from your faith and your family? The Amish: Shunned follows seven people who have chosen to leave their closed and tightly-knit communities for the outside world, knowing they can never return. Each has paid deeply for their decision. Estranged from loved ones, these former Amish find themselves struggling to make their way in modern America.
Hmmmm . . . . And, yet, no-one is calling them Amish-ophobic and demanding sensitivity-training from the Council on American-Amish Relations. Gee, why not?
Oh, and by the way, in contrast to the Amish, Muslims don’t have “Rumspringa,” to allow young Muslims to try out leaving the faith and make their own decisions to whether or not to remain in the fold.
Don’t forget: House Republicans NEVER moved to defund PBS. Ever.
There’s a reason I call PBS what it is . . . Pan-Islamic BS.
FYI, not to be confused with the very anti-Israel, leftist Mennonites, the Amish are very pro-Israel (and they were handymen and very welcomed at the Orthodox Jewish sleepaway camp I and my siblings and my father attended). And they make damned good pretzels. Anyone can make shawarmeh.
