I don't think you really understand what I am saying. When you take all these single instances of bigotry, and compile them together it makes you
When Chuck Norris is calling someone a Camel Jockey in the context of some action film, it is compelling dialogue. But on a psychological level, cool
Chuck Norris is embedding racist impressions into your mind. At the time, you hate his enemies as your own, because we identify with protagonists in
So like it or not, you and I have been subconsciously programmed by these images, that you say 'have been taken out of context'. And I say exactly!
Once you take these images out of the context of films, cartoons, and television, you actually see how bigoted our entertainment media's portrayal
of Arabs and Muslims is.
Now in response to your attempts of straw man rebuttal:
I never said 'we think like this', so it is not "Anti-Western" to make a video compilation like this (which I found online, did not make myself).
Yes, it is years of Hollywood, thats the point, years and years of portrayals. Show me a compilation of the years and years of positive Hollywood
portrayals of Arabs and Muslims. There are none.
You don't see a problem, because this compilation is homemade or something? Meaning that because it doesn't come from Hollywood, it is less than
valid? That doesn't make any sense. And then you say something about Arab bloodlines, and say that because Islam originates there, that Islam is
Arab is everything that is its basis. So are you calling the Indonesians, Indians, Afghans, Pakistanis and Iranians arabs? I think that they would
take great offense to that.
I also think it is funny that you throw in the Abraham to Ishmael vs. Isaac part. Abraham is the father, so it all comes from him through two
brothers. Arabs are Jews, Jews are Arabs. Christians are Jews who think something has happened. Allah is God, God is Allah. We are all
'brothers'. This is usually too radical for the "Blue Eyed Jesus" crowd.
I never said that anything should be 'banned' or 'eliminated'. Hollywood, or Homemade, anyone has the freedom to make whatever they want. You
yourself have the right to make as many bigoted references to as many religious groups as you so choose. You can draw as many cartoons of the Muslim
Prophet as you want for all I am concerned.
All I am illustrating is that for tens of years, our media has included bigoted portrayal after portrayal of Arabs and Muslims. It is no wonder to me
that a majority of Americans allowed themselves to be lied to to go to war in Iraq, and are being lied to about Osama to keep us in Afghanistan. My
opinion is that Hollywood has taken billions of dollars to fund their products from Jewish Money. It is the best interest to placate the Jewish Money
by including these stereotypes, so better help when it comes time to steal Arab lands and oil.
Perhaps that better illustrates my position, and intent in presenting this video.
