After Schlussel Inquiry, Chevy Dealers Drop “Muslims Are the Real Victims” 9/11 Ad; CBS Detroit Created False, Pan-Muslim “PSA”

By Debbie Schlussel

CBS Radio Detroit has chosen to portray 9/11 as an attack on Muslims across America, and now the propaganda “ads” for this absurdity have lost a sponsor, Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers, because I called and asked around about the ad in preparation for this article.  This is the same CBS Detroit, which is about to launch a “conservative” talk radio station (with a known liberal as its morning host).  They apparently think conservatives are a gullible bunch.  And maybe they are.  Time and the ratings will tell.


Memo for CBS Radio Detroit’s Deb Kenyon: Muslims Were the PERPETRATORS of 9/11, NOT the “Victims;” Stop Broadcasting Propaganda & Lies Disguised as “Public Service Announcements”

(Thanks to Reader “Doda McCheesle” for the Graphic)

For the last several days, all CBS radio stations in Detroit  (including the highly rated WWJ-950 AM) have been running a “public service announcement,” which says Muslims are “the real victims” of the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks on America, not the 3,000 Americans murdered BY Muslims.  The ad says it is sponsored by Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers and urges listeners to come to local Chevy Dealerships to get a “lantern” to light on 9/11 to honor the Muslim victims.  In the ad, an unidentified Muslim woman tells us how Muslim religious schools around the country have to be repeatedly evacuated because of bomb threats and how Muslims constantly live in fear of Americans.

The ad is a lie.  In fact, Muslim schools were not repeatedly evacuated because of bomb threats and Muslims do not live in fear.  Reality Check: report after report notes that Muslim Schools in America are where hate is taught, where perpetrators are created, NOT victims. There hasn’t been the backlash they claim, and instead, we’ve bent over backward for Muslims.  The Bush administration set up a special division of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Office, just to go after Americans who allegedly commit “hate crimes” against Muslims, and it has prosecuted Americans for merely exercising free speech rights.  And we’ve increased Muslim immigration significantly.

Today, I contacted both CBS Radio Detroit and Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers, who confirmed that CBS Radio created a public service announcement to remember the victims of 9/11.  But none of the Chevy Dealers, including their advertising agent, had ever heard the ad, which was created by CBS Radio Detroit group chief, Deb Kenyon to honor a current Detroit Muslim employee she declined to name, as a victim of 9/11.  Chevy dealers I spoke with were entirely unaware of the ad and flabbergasted that their dealerships were associated with this outrageous ad (except dealer Mike Savoie, a wimp who refused to comment–might upset his Muslim clients?).  They wanted people to come to their dealerships to remember the 3,000 Americans who were murdered.  After a long discussion in which she initially told me that “everyone is entitled to their opinion in America” in the public service announcement, Barb Mozer, of Mozer Media, which places ads for Metro Chevy Dealers, told me, this afternoon, that the Chevy Dealers would be pulling the ad.

But the ad might continue anyway, because CBS Radio Detroit chief Kenyon–who, again, is creating a new conservative talk radio station–personally created the disgusting ad with a Muslim employee and she’s very “proud” of it.    Check out this e-mail discussion I had with Kenyon and let her know, if you live in Detroit, whether this will endear you to her new “conservative” talk station:

Subject: Deb, Questions Re- Your Offensive “Muslims Are the Victims of 9/11” Ads . . .
To: “Kenyon, Debbie”

I’m writing to ask about the very offensive “Muslims were the real victims of 9/11” PSAs that are running throughout the Detroit CBS radio group. As you know or should know, the ad features the voice of an alleged Muslim woman claiming that Muslims are the real victims of 9/11 because allegedly, Islamic school were evacuated repeatedly since 9/11 (something that isn’t documented anywhere as the ad admits because it just didn’t happen), and because Muslims “have been forced to live in fear” ever since. The ad then asks people to go to metro Detroit Chevy dealers and ask for a peace lantern to light up on 9/11. The ad is outrageous, and if I had a show on your station, I would run this ad and then rant and rave about it to your listeners.

I understand from your WWJ Sales manager, Bruce Stoller, who has not heard the ads, and from other officials I spoke to today at WWJ, that this highly disturbing ad was your idea, and that you wanted to do this to “reach out to the victims of 9/11 ten years later.” HUH? Deb, 3,000 AMERICANS–not Muslims–were murdered because they are Americans. 19 MUSLIMS were the PERPETRATORS. This is how you reach out to victims??? PUH-LEEZE. Bruce Stoller said that you not only dreamed up the ad and the idea of the lanterns, but that you approached the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers to sponsor the ad. What were you thinking? I’m now going to write about this and urge people to boycott the Chevy dealers over this, so you just hurt your advertiser by pulling them into disgusting political correctness.

Why did you do this, Deb? Is it the position of CBS radio that Muslims are the real victims of 9/11? If not, why the heck are you running this ad? Why did you approach advertisers and get them in on this absurd, liberal, PC message? And yet you are running a “conservative” radio station? Hilarious. You must think conservative listeners are very gullible.

Looking forward to your response.

Debbie Schlussel

Here’s her response, and you should note that despite her claims, I’ve repeatedly heard this “Muslims are the victims of 9/11” spot and no others regarding 9/11. (Think she’d air a PSA from listeners, clients, and staff who tell the truth about who perpetrate 9/11 and the need to remain vigilant against them because of other terrorist attacks they’ve perpetrated or tried to perpetrate on U.S. soil?) Even if there were others (and there aren’t–this one ran frequently), would we let Nazis cut spots about the 10th anniversary of World War II? Apparently, CBS Radio Detroit boss Deb Kenyon would. (She copied Dom Theodore, a consultant to Glenn Beck, and the program director of the new “conservative” talk radio, on her response. He’s the one who picked a liberal to host the only local show on the station, the morning show.)

This is a personal story by one of our employees. We are asking our listeners, clients and staf,f [DS: sic] if they choose, to cut a 9/11 remembrance spot. The 9/11 concept was my idea and I am proud of the message we are sending at CBS Radio Detroit.

Well, she’s got the “story” part right. There’s no truth in anything the Muslima said in the PSA. It’s all lies. There’s nothing “personal” about it. It presents absolute falsehoods she didn’t personally experience (because they never occurred) as “fact.”

It can’t possibly be a personal story b/c she says that Muslim schools around the country were repeatedly evacuated due to bomb threats. That simply NEVER happened–not anywhere else, and NOT in Detroit. It’s a lie. You are lying to your listeners and invoking your advertiser, Chevy Dealers, in the lie. She also says that Muslims lived in fear after 9/11, as if the rest of us Americans are bigots who ran to kill them. Sorry, but again, that backlash just didn’t happen. There is only one such case–in which people murdered a Sikh gas station owner in Arizona. On the contrary, we bent over backward for Muslims in so many ways since 9/11, the list would circle the moon. Who is the person who told these lies in this ad which is running repeatedly on your stations and why are you shielding her identity and giving her airtime to lie?

Essentially, you are proud of saying that Muslims are the real victims of 9/11, not the perpetrators. And that 3,000 Americans who died then are not the victims, but Muslims are? I’ve started calling Chevy dealer owners in Detroit who know nothing about this ad, and they are flabbergasted. The ad is disgusting. Again, you must think that conservatives–and other Americans–are very gullible. Sad, very sad. My cousin was murdered in the towers, and I doubt you could face his family after playing that sickening ad for them.

To: “Kenyon, Debbie”

PS, Deb:
Since you say this is a “personal story” by your employee, have you gotten her to name a single Muslim school in Detroit which was “evacuated repeatedly” as she claims in the ad? Can you provide the name of the school and documentation? Of course, not. Because it NEVER happened. You are lying to your listeners.

Of course, Kenyon did not respond, nor would she name the employee or any Detroit Muslim school allegedly “repeatedly evacuated because of bomb threats after 9/11.” It never happened.

But now you know how reliable the information you get from CBS radio is: they shill for jihad in “honor” of the “victims” of 9/11.


BTW, I don’t believe we’re getting the full story here. One of CBS Radio Detroit’s biggest advertisers is Yahya Basha, a Syrian Muslim doctor who does breast exams and who has been cited by the FDA in a warning letter. (Get your breasts checked there at your own risk . . . if you’re a moron.) He was on the board of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and headed the American Muslim Council until it was shut down by the federal government for fundraising for HAMAS and for its executive director’s planned murder plot on then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdulllah, after being paid to do the job by Muammar Qaddafi. Basha recently settled a lawsuit after he fired his General Counsel after he learned that she was married, had children, and was a Jew. Basha (who is a Republican and who frequently met with President Bush) is an extremist and he pays CBS Radio Detroit big bucks. Cha-ching!

Let us take this one step further, Deb. Please list all of the sponsors on CBS Radio Detroit, and that way we can contact those sponsors to pull their advertisements from that station.

That is the only way these media whores will learn.

Jonathan E. Grant on August 29, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Jon, and they’ll be telling us shortly the Joos where behind 9/11.

    Yeah, sure.

    This whitewashing of history is reprehensible. There is good news though.

    The Jerusalem Post finally fired columnist Larry Derfner after he wrote an article endorsing the mass murder of Jews by Arab terrorists!

    Its days like this I live for. Our actions have consequences and if all of us had the fear of G-d in us, we would never think of acting foolishly.

    We need to give the Derfner Treatment to those who want to change the history of the last decade to change the role Islam played on 9/11.

    After all, it WAS an inside job and let’s never forget it!

    NormanF on August 29, 2011 at 3:12 pm

      There’s been times when it seemed that Derfner was hired by the Jerusalem Post to be a troll who’s job it was to stir the pot and generate controversy (ratings). Whether or not that was the case, he obviously went too far this time. Good riddance to the jerk.

      Scott on August 29, 2011 at 11:35 pm

    I agree with Jon (as usual). A corrupt major media outlet? Who woulda thunk it.

    Occam's Tool on August 29, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Debbie, 2 pieces of “evidence” Muslims in the US and around the world use in their claim of being “victims” of 9/11 is that Jewish Twin Tower workers stayed home on 9/11 while at the same time “many” Muslims were killed in the Twin Towers.

Add to this the various anti-Semitic and anti-American conspiracy theories (Bush and the Israeli Mossad blew up the towers) Muslims gladly eat up those crackpot theories.

As I’ve written on this blog before, Muslims are throwing money at conservatives to get influence,and at least some of that money is sticking to their greedy hands. This ad is yet another example of that.

Scott on August 29, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    If you mean the Truthers, the Westboro anti-American cult and similar conspiracy nutcases out there, yeah people will believe what they want to believe. America was attacked by Islam on 9/11. After a decade, people should know better. If you wonder how people can deny the Holocaust decades after it happened and its well documented, look at what we have – 9/11 on video and audio tape. The unvarnished facts speak for themselves. But there are those with their own agendas and it helps to remember that what they are after isn’t the truth.

    NormanF on August 29, 2011 at 3:17 pm

DS (in the archives) has a very interesting post on that Dr. Yahya Basha and how he fired his GC after learning she was married, pregnant and a Jew, Look it up FYI.

And whatever you do this year to remember 9/11, DO NOT let anyone tell you 9/11 was an INSIDE job. Remind them it was an ISLAM job.

If anyone tries to tell you to feel bad for the Mooooslims that day, tell them to STFU and remember Kevin Cosgrove…

Skunky on August 29, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Its an inside job by Islam. Not by our government, the Jews or whatever other culprit is picked to divert attention from the people who launched the attacks that brought down the World Trade Centers and cost thousands of American lives. Moreover, it wasn’t an elaborate conspiracy. It was a plot carried out by Islamic terrorists to destroy the leading symbol of American high finance and a testament to America’s economic strength and innovation. They hate us and every thing we stand for as a country. A decade later and quite a few people are in danger of forgetting the most elementary fact of life – there is an enemy out there who wants us all dead!

    NormanF on August 29, 2011 at 3:24 pm

      That’s right Norman. And Popular Mechanics proved the whack-job freak truthers were deluded and deranged.

      These dopes always wants you to work harder on believing a kooky conspiracy than the truth, which comes quite easy and with plenty of facts.

      Skunky on August 29, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    Conveniently scrubbed from history. I lived through that day and I will never forget it as long as I’m alive!

Thanks for another great piece of information Debbie.

Everyone should fly The Stars and Stripes on 9/11.

    I second what Dtom said.

    JeffE on August 29, 2011 at 10:50 pm

Question, why is Ms. Kenyon saying that muslims were the real victims of 9/11/01? Is this woman crazy or what, Debbie, I’m glad you called this woman out not only this blog of yours, but also via email!

Did Ms. Kenyon acknowledged that minutes after we where hit on 9/11/01, all of the islamist across the middle east celebrated on the roads, I remember, because I saw news coverage of those backward, koran-thumping vermin celebrating in the roads. When I saw those f**king islamist celebrated, I got real pissed off and I felt like breaking something and do something I regret doing. And I also was cursing and getting worked up when I saw those islamists nutjobs celebrated the demise of 3,000 innocent, hard working people lost their lives (back then I wasn’t into politics and I was a “Centrist” and later became a conservative on that day). So Ms. Kenyon needs to wake up and live in the real world and see what’s really occuring around instead of listening to PR-people who works with her!

Barach knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices (?) we are going to have to change our conversation (?) we’re going to have to change our traditions (what?) our history (really?) … Michelle Obama May 14, 2008
I feel like I am being sacrificed every day, and people are changing the truth in the name of our Communist regime and our President.

Tina on August 29, 2011 at 4:11 pm

How many mosques and Islamic centers require guards and security monitoring? Very few. How many synagogues and Jewish centers require guards and security monitoring? Quite a few – including my own. It’s even worse for Jews in Europe where they’re outnumbered 20:1 by Muslims.

As to the “Muslims are the real victims” trope, FBI figures – as Debbie has frequently pointed out – show that is a lie. Though Jews outnumber Muslims in the US less than 3:1, religious hate crimes against Jews in the US run 8-9 times those against Muslims.

Raymond in DC on August 29, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Deb, can you please list the other sponsors of CBS radio Detroit? They should be notified of the risks of advertising on this station, the risk being a boycott of their products or services.

Jonathan E. Grant on August 29, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Debbie, when I read the headline of this post, I thought it was another absurdity/joke like the hurricane-phobe one. When I read that this was a real ad campaign – asserting the idea that muslims are the real victims of 9/11 – I was stunned.

DS_ROCKS! on August 29, 2011 at 4:39 pm

This sounds like the Japanese after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, claiming they were the victims, or the Germans after WWII, claiming they were the victims of world Jewry.

Jonathan E. Grant on August 29, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    Jon, yup, excellent point. That’s what I find offensive about the campaign to transform people, who can’t even express contrition for wrong-doing, into innocent victims. Islam instigated jihad centuries before 9/11 ever happened and continues to wage it to this very day!

    NormanF on August 29, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Why is a “consultant” to Glenn Beck a party to this travesty? Hint: Glenn Beck isn’t quite the “conservative” that his rabid followers make him out to be. If I’m not mistaken, Debbie Schlussel refers to him as Glenn Bleeccch. Or something like that.

Seek on August 29, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    He’s wrong about a few things. But he gets it about Islam and Israel. Those who hate Beck support Islamic jihad and hate the Jewish State.

    Debbie has to write columns correcting them b/c the enemy is already here among us and can strike again.

    NormanF on August 29, 2011 at 9:26 pm

chevy just lost my business!!! i am sick and tired of all the whining muslims, they have it made here and keep asking for more! wake up america before it’s too late!!!

kf on August 29, 2011 at 11:57 pm


How many times do I have to tell you that the core creed of Islam is treachery, treason and terror. The other side of this coin is fabrication, falsification and obfuscation. You must memorize this mantra and repeat it all the time Islam is mentioned.

Unfortunately, our master politians prooved to be fools enough to fall for the slick lies of Islam and Islam proveed to be smart enough to fool experienced politicians. This is the sad part of the story

G. R. SCHAROUBIM on August 30, 2011 at 10:34 am

Hey Deb. Love your work on this. Is there a link you can post so we can hear the ad and send it to others that they may see what is going on? Not everyone I know is a political junkie or aware of the outrageous assaults against Americans by ignorant and stupid Jihadi/Sharia loving Americans. The ad itself would go a long way of helping bring awareness to those who are just busy with living unaware how some Americans are plotting against them. I looked but could not find an audio link for the “PSA”. Good on the Detroit dealers who pulled the ads once you informed them. Keep up the great work.

Debbie on August 30, 2011 at 11:07 am

Happy to see that Government Motors succumbed, at least temporary to public pressure, but they’ll be back; they’re Government and union owners share CBS Radio’s views.

there is no evidence connecting muslims to 9 11

plenty to suggest it was those filthy jews though

Hey “asif”,

Ay Dee Feek, Ya Huddah Deen!

Try telling the Ukrainian-American family of my wife’s friend who was incinerated by your “Allah Akbar” acolytes. Try telling my Chinese-American friend whose friend who had just moved his business into one of the towers the month before your pals turned it and him into dust. Try telling that to our Jewish friends who watched the towers collapse as they drove into New York for work that day. Try telling that to all the Port Authority people who were reduced to nothingness because your animal friends acted upon their nothingness beliefs.

F-OFF, you derriere sniffer-licker.

ps: Next, I suppose, you’ll be telling us that Beslan was attacked by Martians!?!?

ali on September 20, 2011 at 5:16 pm

Debbie, you seem like a very hateful person, and you also seem to think you’re constantly being persecuted because you’re Jewish. You also seem to harbor hatred towards blacks, and have this knee-jerk defense to any perceived slight towards any republican.

You have issues, and I wish people would stop giving you a soapbox to stand on.

Jack M. on November 11, 2011 at 7:06 pm

“we will defeat and take your country from the inside.” Does anyone remember those words. Islam leaders threw those words in our faces over a decade ago, but our leaders were not listening. Think about that.
