The latest news event not covered by sleepy Canadian media this week is the story of provocative advertisements plastered on public transit buses in Washington DC. Some may argue that controversy surrounding what a US city allows or disallows is hardly news in Canada but this is clearly not the case considering that same sex marriage ceremonies at successive US city halls have been widely celebrated across Canada and won’t stop until all 50 states finally “see the light”.
Others may pretend that the current bus posters showing an archival black & white photograph of Adolf Hitler meeting with the leader of a major world religious organization is of no interest but this is simply untrue; the image of the 20th century’s most abhorred tyrant alone appearing on an advertisement today would pique the interest of just about every living human on the planet. And still others will say that airing dirty laundry isn’t the charitable thing to do but this too is not true. The same media organizations that believed that the threat made by a small town US pastor to burn a Koran was world class news are now plugging their ears and shielding their politically correct eyes about the bus ad controversy in Washington DC.
I checked Google today and found that aside from the local Washington papers & Time magazine, none of the usual suspects from mainstream media (and none from Canada) have bothered to cover the story. But it is just a matter of time before our complacent media will soon run out of fingers with which to plug all the leaks springing out of the dykes they’ve built to hold back the inconvenient truth about the failure of multiculturalism in Western society. Knowing that it is always open season in the media on Christianity, loyal readers of metrolandmedia or the CBC can be certain that the ad in question does NOT depict Pope Puis XII meeting with Adolf Hitler (after all that WOULD be newsworthy for a century or so). Readers will just have to look beyond the politically correct news that is fit to be printed by the Toronto Star, The Waterloo Record , the CBC and other neutered media in order to learn just who was photographed fawning over Hitler at the height of World War II and can be seen smiling on the buses today in a Western nation that hasn’t muzzled free expression.
Oh and if the bus photograph isn’t clear enough to show where the allegiances of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem lay maybe this will clear things up:
