The Audacity of Hype

Why can't Staten Island have ads like this?

"The Audacity of Jihad," a commercial which opposes the construction of the 'ground zero mosque,' was restricted from NBC and CBS because, well, it's ridiculous.

The offenses are endless: clever insinuation of Obama's collusion, implication that all Muslims are terrorists, the insulting statement that the mosque will "celebrate the murder of 3,000 Americans."

But, whatever, it's been banned from TV. Scott Wheeler from the National Republican trust - the group who funded it - is crying foul. People in the neighborhood are trying to landmark the building so brown people can't go in.

The video itself is an astonishing piece of propaganda. Can we get one of these for Midland Beach?
