Tonight on Palestinian Broadcasting Service – Your Tax $$$s @ Work w Another Attack on Christians

By Debbie Schlussel

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:

pbsamishcircle

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?

This is the kind of programming you regularly see about Muslims on Al-PBS (from my June 2, 2011 post):

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.

Well, I guess attacking the Catholics, Evangelical Protestants, Jews and Mormons isn’t enough for PBS. Abolish all religion.

Little Al on February 4, 2014 at 5:54 pm

I frequently visit Pennsylvania and see the Amish. In certain ways, Amish are almost the perfect Americans. They work extremely hard. Their farms are the most productive farms in America. They do not rely on the government for handouts. They are self-reliant and skilled. They believe in capitalism. They have an extremely low crime rate.

No wonder the left hates and mocks them.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 4, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    I believe that the Amish are to be admired for their self-discipline and devotion – and certainly not targeted or derided by the filthy left – but I do take their extreme pacifism ( for instance they use pins on their clothes and sleeves because buttons were a symbol on soldiers’ uniforms)as a bit of a weak link because the very freedom that they enjoy and to which they fled from prosecution in Germany was hard-fought for by the blood of American soldiers and patriots.

    DS_ROCKS! on February 5, 2014 at 8:06 pm

Little Al, abolish all but one religion (stipulating for the nonce that Islam is a religion).

The more I think of it, the more I am convinced that the only way to address the sickness of society is to target the media with nonviolent direct action. I don’t see why those with AIDS could do it under ACT UP, but we cannot do it.

skzion on February 4, 2014 at 6:13 pm

I agree Skzion.
The media is out to defame every religion in the US except Islam.
I used to wonder why but now I realize that it’s because Islam is more of a political system than a religion.
With Islam it’s always about power and control and the left can work with that.
The Amish, not so much.

Frankz on February 4, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Frankz:

    Islam and Christianity (Yes! Christianity too!) are imperialist religions; political systems.

    Judaism is a Nationalist religion: the land and People Israel.

    Christianity has gradually relinquished imperialism. Judaism remains a Nationalist religion, thus attracting accusations of “Fascism” from the left. No matter! Eretz Y’israel is a rather small tract of land and hardly a threat to anyone.

    Islam remains an imperialist religion; a political movement. 700 years younger than Christianity, it might take another 700 years for Islam to shed its imperialist nature.

    The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is a Czarist forgery that was promoted to portray Judaism as an imperialist movement. The message was: “You see! They’re just like us and the Muslims; only worse.”

    Those of us who truly know and understand Judaism know it’s about the Land and People of Israel. Unfortunately, the Land and People of Israel is situated right smack in the way of competing empires. That in of itself makes for a thesis explaining why anti-Semitism is the “oldest hatred”.

    Just thought I’d give you something to think about.

    And now… back to our regularly scheduled program.

      I don’t know if I’m replying to the right person or not, so apologies. I think I’m replying to frankz. Nothing personal Frank. It’s just that thinking that Islam “might” change for the better some time in the unknowable future is one of our shared delusions that keeps us all in danger. It ain’t gonna change.

Used to be thugs beat up on the Amish now it’s PBS broadcast terrorists.

Frankz on February 4, 2014 at 6:36 pm

Obviously I neglected to mention that Muslims will kill you for defaming Islam but everybody already admits that.

Frankz on February 4, 2014 at 6:39 pm

I wasn’t going to say anything, but since the issue of the media has come up, I always thought that the slogan ‘four legs good, two legs bad’ in Animal Farm referred to the press.

In the book, the sheep always started bleating that slogan when there was criticism of Comrade Napoleon, the pig in charge. The sheep would start their sloganeering to drown out that criticism.

The press do the same thing as the sheep. Their version of ‘four legs good, two legs bad’ is to try to drown out and extinguish all criticism of the left. They have been doing this consistently at least since the Progressive Era in the early part of the last century. So they are a mouthpiece for the rest of the liberal elite in society.

I will not comment on the best way to challenge the press, although I would suspect that a successful challenge would be multi-faceted and lawful, and would emphasize their role as sycophants.

I enjoy Rev. Jacques’ comments, and have learned a lot from them over time, but I view Orwell’s slogan differently.

Little Al on February 4, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    It’s going to take two in my opinion Little Al.
    Guts and the truth. Both in equal measure probably because without one unfortunately the other doesn’t last long.

    Frankz on February 4, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    sorry, that’s two *things*

    Frankz on February 4, 2014 at 7:15 pm

It is not even original programming. TLC beat PBS to the punch with Breaking Amish, as did Discovery with its Amish Mafia. Even in the area of defamation, PBS is a slug. Republicans has the chance to curtail or kill it off in the past, but always failed to do so.

And they’re renowned for their craftsmanship. Furniture you buy from an Amish carpenter will last forever!

Its not true they shun modern conveniences. They don’t use electricity but they do gas-powered appliances. People tend to ridicule others with traditional beliefs.

What you see on TV isn’t necessarily the entire picture.

NormanF on February 4, 2014 at 7:49 pm

The Iron Fist tightens around our throats even more, as The Muslim In Chief still fails to account for his whereabouts during a certain period on September 11, 2012. He wasn’t hangin’ with Benghazi, that’s for sure. Noooooooo, gotta put some distance there.

As for the Amish, they’re admirable in myriad ways. I discovered a great Amish cheese at a health food store a few years ago, can’t remember the brand name.

Anyone know is it true that there is some really popular dude on the internet who refers to himself as The Amish something or other? How can that be if they don’t use electricity?

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 4, 2014 at 8:39 pm

If the Republicans could not make a case for and eliminate funding for PBS, then they do not really deserve to be in Office.

Just the licensing from the Muppets would have replaced the taxpayer funding many times over. The business plan for PBS is non-existent, except when it comes to paying some of their executives $1,000,000+. Their new building on North Capitol Street in DC, is situated close enough to the Senate and House to allow for easy lobbying. And you people paid for that building through your taxes.

You know how they say, Pubic television only costs 36 cents a day for the taxpayers. Well, that adds up to $100 a year that should be staying in the taxpayers dollars. That is a week or two of groceries. Two-three weeks of gas for my car. An electric or gas bill. They talk as if our money does not matter. Disgusting.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 4, 2014 at 9:08 pm

Let ‘em eat cake, Mr. Grant. LOL!!!

Well, that’s where we are in history, . . .

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 4, 2014 at 9:13 pm

For the record: Islam is not a religion, it is a mental illness. The Amish I have met are very nice folks. Hard working, honest and talented. Their woodworking skills are remarkable.

#1 VATO on February 4, 2014 at 9:17 pm

Dear Debbie:

I’ll take it on faith that you are correct and I can’t thank you enough. I have long associated the Amish with Mennonites. I’d also add that I know Amish people (not “living the life”) and people of Amish ancestry who are anti-Semitic.

All that being said, I take comfort that you have found the Amish to be pro-Israel and NOT like the Mennonites. I live near “Amish Country”. Thanks to you, I will be less likely to think how much I’d really, REALLY like to run over their darn Horse-and-Buggy when I’m trying to make time on a two-lane highway. From now on, I’ll ask them first: “Amish or Mennonite?” :-)

OK! Hopefully you know, I don’t wanna hurt nobody; especially the innocent horse.

… but it’s not like the thought never crossed my mind on a “bad hair day”.

P.S. These comments digress from the main thesis of your column. I’ll try to comment on that later.

ROTFLMAO!!! at TINSC. Funny stuff, thanks for the laugh, a little offbeat of your usual fare. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But try not to hurt the horses. I’ve gotten very close to horses since beginning my transition to life as a jibaro. Horses are some of the nicest people I know.

Tom Fakih made millions of dollars and when he got busted by feds he changed the pharmacy name to tru-aid and took his name out and put his sister in law as an honor. Then he goes to the mosque and act as a religious person since his on the board. Most money hungry , lier and scammer person ever & I’m related to him

EH: Thanks. I know all about him. He’s a close relative of Miss Hezbollah USA, Rima Fakih. They are all scammers and con artists. DS

Debbie:

I agree with the basic premise of your thesis.. PBS would NOT likely run a program that focused on analogous practice in Islam. There is little question about it.

When PBS runs programs that focus on manifest Islamic Violence (such as the movie “Death of a Princess”), the heavy-hitters of Islam come down on PBS like a ton of bricks. We know all about that.

What you didn’t mention was how incredibly cowardly the PBS attack on the Amish is. As far as I know, the Amish don’t watch TV; PBS or otherwise. When it comes to picking on the helpless, PBS can’t stoop any lower.

Your column here is both timely and informational. It shows that PBS picks on the helpless and is hardly for “the little guy”. They don’t just pick on the Jews and Israel. They stoop so low they pick on Americans they know will not see, let alone react to their television programs.

Man! That’s LOW!

There is a large Amish community in Central Illinois. They don’t seem to have any trouble associating with their kids who leave the church. The son of a customer of mine died. I went to the funeral, and noted a number of buggies parked outside the Catholic church where the funeral was held. I asked his other son about it and was told that they were his mom’s relatives.

Shh, Debbie, don’t tell, the Amish don’t watch television and don’t contribute to CPB (other than perhaps being unwitting subjects for criticism), and petrodollars are needed.

marblenecltr on February 5, 2014 at 11:58 am

Islamic imperialism will never end as long as hatred of Jews and orders for their eventual extermination are a major part of the Koran’s teaching. It is spiritual and racial hatred; geography is a lesser and later (by approximately 1,400 years) part of the conflict. Obtain a Koran and read chapters 8 & 9. Do not be misled by “abrogated” verses, instances where we are told that Allah changed his opinion of the Jews and other non-believers. And nowhere in the New Testament does it tell believers to chop the heads off of those unwilling to convert to Christianity, although that command is repeated in the Koran and Hadith. The brutality against Jews by Christians is horrible and undeniable, but it is part of the wickedness of man, not the Lord’s commandments to His followers.

marblenecltr on February 5, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I just reading how these muslim mand and his brother stands accused of holding his wife captive for five months inside a Modesto home
It goes on to say..
The couple is the product of an arranged marriage, authorities say, and the two appear to be from Afghanistan.

The complaint indicates the woman was held captive from Sept. 1 through Sunday, when Modesto police found her in north Modesto. Officers responded after a report of a fight between two people at the Marshalls store shopping center at McHenry and Standiford avenues.

The dispute was apparently between Masehullah’s wife and his brother. Authorities said the woman was found wearing a robe and a traditional Middle Eastern head covering.

The officers were directed to the couple’s home, where they found a belt used to tie up the woman. Authorities said the woman was fed once a day while held captive.

Masehullah entered the courtroom Tuesday afternoon wearing a gray and black striped jail inmate jumpsuit with shackles on his wrists and ankles. He appeared for his arraignment hearing without an attorney and seemed somewhat confused about the proceedings.

Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge David Vanderwall asked Masehullah if he understood the criminal charges against him. The defendant said he understood the copy of the criminal complaint handed to him, but he wasn’t paying attention when he was shown a video advising him of his rights.

While trying to clarify the charges for the judge, Owen told the judge that prosecutors believe Masehullah threatened to kill his wife if she told police.

Vanderwall ordered Masehullah to stay away from the woman if he posts bail and is released from custody. As of Tuesday evening, Masehullah remained at the jail.
Doing web search for this article, two hits.One a blog,the other being..Modesto Bee….Unless you came across this, you would never know this happened.For matter of information.PBS want air how arranged marriages,are working out in America..

Steve on February 5, 2014 at 2:28 pm

Debbie,
You really need to educate yourself with regard to cults, which includes the Amish. The control and emotional damage done, let alone spiritual damage done, is long-lasting.

I agree that it is not the business of the government to get into such issues, since this is a theological matter. But if you are going to comment on the actions of cults, you really need to understand the inner workings. We live in an area with a lot of Amish and Mennonite families and so interact with them often. We have family members who got involved with a cultic group, and I used to be a member of one of the largest cults in the world – the Mormons.

Although the government had no business spending my tax dollars on the program, at least the public was alerted to just a wee bit of the psychological and spiritual harm done by the Amish.

Glenn E. Chatfield on February 5, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    “one of the largest cults in the world – the Mormons.”

    I guess that depends on what “one of the” also includes. Islam is by far the largest cult in the world. Your omission of this, despite the content of this very column, is telling.

    skzion on February 5, 2014 at 6:49 pm

      Those who claim Islam is a cult don’t understand the definition of a cult. Islam is not a cult. It is a political/religious system, and their are cults of that system, but Islam itself is not a cult.

      They are the most dangerous group of people in the world, but they are not a cult.

      Glenn E. Chatfield on February 6, 2014 at 12:46 pm

        Oh thanks for the education, Mr. Bagpipes. Imagine! You say Islam is not a cult, and try to “educate” us, but then do not provide the “correct” definition of a cult.

        Moreover, you come here to pile on the Amish, but now you want to pretend that your really object to the Muslims?

        Lol. Scram.

        skzion on February 6, 2014 at 6:32 pm

          SKzion

          There are a couple different definitions of a cult. One is a sociological group which isolates itself, is run by a virtual dictator, and controls the lives of everyone in it. They may or may not have a theological backing.

          Theological cults are breakoffs of mainstream religious bodies which violate fundamental doctrines of the parent religion. They may or may not also be a sociological cult.

          Cults of Christianity include Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Unitarians, Word of Faith, Moonies, Christian Science, et al.

          Cults if Islam include Nation of Islam, Baha’i, Druze, Sufi, et al.

          Cults of Hinduism include Hare Krishna, New Age, Transcendental Meditation groups, et al.

          While many religious systems have cult-like qualities, the system itself is not a religions cult if it is not a break off of another religious system.

          Islam has many characteristics of a sociological cult within its teachings, but one thing it certainly doesn’t do is isolate itself – they are everywhere and want to take over the world. I know there are many people who call Islam a cult, but it is no more of a cult than the Nazis. It is a religious-political system out to destroy the world.

          I fully understand Debbie’s point about PBS not denouncing Islam, but she acted as if the Amish represent mainstream Christianity when in fact they are a cult which has caused untold people harm. Try doing a bit of research.

          Glenn E. Chatfield on February 7, 2014 at 1:23 pm

And Mr. Chatfield, what of the psychological, spiritual, physical, structural and financial harm perpetrated by the world’s largest gang, . . .

Islam? What of that? That was Debbie’s salient point here, at least as I see it. The silence and pandering to the most destructive cult in world history.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 5, 2014 at 3:26 pm

I remember many years ago watching, “DEATH OF A PRINCESS”, on the PBS network.

It included a clandestine video recording of a Saudi princess and her lover, both being publicly executed for adultery.

The man was beheaded with a sword, and the princess was executed with a pistol shot to the back of her head.

Does anyone else remember watching that on PBS?

John Robert Mallernee on February 5, 2014 at 4:44 pm

I think the issue at hand here is not whether the Amish are cultish, imperfect, make good furniture or whatever. It is, however, the Faustian bargain PBS, the left, the current administration and much of Western Civilization has made with Islam. It’s the Amish this week, next week it’s something else, but not Islam. I mean, seriously, how difficult is “Faust” to understand? The deal with the devil is one of the most ancient, ingrained, genetically encoded ‘mythologies’ we have. We always ignore the truth of it at our peril.

Pray Hard on February 5, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    There are many things I like on PBS, but their loathsome liberalism and Islamopandering make me sick. I used to try to listen to Terry Gross sometimes because she would have an interesting person on at times. But, it became so that she would turn or attempt to turn every, and I mean EVERY, discussion into something racial, sexual or feminist. When I found myself yelling at the radio, I decided it was time to let of of Fresh Air. I’m sure Islamopandering is in there now.

    Pray Hard on February 5, 2014 at 6:32 pm

The left will always oppose a genuinely peaceful religion. They
espouse their own religion, a collectivist socialist utopia.

This requires a violent revolution. This is also why they make
common cause with Islam. They share a common political ideology
and penchant for violence.

Leonard Jones on February 5, 2014 at 9:27 pm

Mr. Jones, all too sadly true, especially when you consider their love for people like Che Guevara, etal. Oh sure, they’ll profess their admiration for people like Ghandi, but when you look at whom they admire the most, who they speak about in their chin stroking intellectual discourse, they tend to romanticize the violent ones, and talk about the “need” for a violent revolution.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 5, 2014 at 9:41 pm

You know, the Amish have lived peacefully among “the English” for generations. Why is it that suddenly the media are determined to undermine and defame the Amish? As Debbie correctly pointed out, it is a tradition in their faith that their young people, at around the age of 18, are encouraged to leave their community and go live for a year out in “the world.” They are encouraged to experience life outside of the Amish community, and then make a CHOICE about whether they want to come back. For those of you who demean their faith by calling the Amish a “cult,” how many cults not only allow, but encourage their members to leave?

As for the tradition of shunning those who choose to leave the faith, again, the Amish are not alone in this. Shunning has a long history in many faiths and nationalities. Frankly, whether or not an individual family practices shunning is kind of up to the family. The person who chooses to leave the faith understands that this is a possible outcome of their decision. But again, for these people, leaving, shunning, etc., is a CHOICE. Unlike certain religions where it is a practice to MURDER someone who chooses to leave the faith. Heck, some believers in Islam MURDER their daughters because they don’t like the way the girls DRESS! My mother used to forbid me from leaving the house dressed a certain way, but it would never have occurred to her to MURDER me.

Let’s see a media outlet paint an honest picture of Islam. It will never happen because they are too afraid.

DG in GA on February 6, 2014 at 1:52 pm

    DG in GA,

    The Amish don’t really encourage their members to leave – you have a misunderstanding of what happens with the teens. They PERMIT them to sow their wild oats, but if they dare to leave they are hounded and made to feel deep guilt, and many take 7 or 8 or more times of leaving and returning before they finally leave it all together. And as long as a member is outside of the church, they are treated horribly, and are told they will go to hell if they die outside the Amish faith.

    The legalistic rules are spiritually dangerous, physical abuse is common, and without an education beyond an 8th grade level it is very difficult for them to find world if they do leave. Even with 8th grade education, that show demonstrated the poor reading and writing level attained.

    The LEFT will never show the truth about Islam because they are afraid of them, and our President is more Muslim than the Christian he claims to be (he can claim to be a Christian but his beliefs show differently).

    Glenn E. Chatfield on February 7, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Debbie is right once again, the leftist pigs at PBS only attack Christians and Jews while using our tax dollars to do it. SHAME!

Cassandra on February 7, 2014 at 1:21 am

Attacking the Amish seems to be a new trend here. I recall the recent creation of a fake reality show by one of the cable stations called “Amish Mafia”, an organization that doesn’t exist, and that they made up out of whole cloth. Why do they do it? Because Amish are pacifist and private, and there’s no risk of push back. They don’t even own TVs. One definition of a coward is someone who picks a fight with someone they know will not punch back. PBS are cowards, and although it won’t happen here, I wish someone would punch their producers in the mouth.
