Oh, isn't JuddL cute? Getting all worked up defending the honor of his country.
|Even "Little Mosque on the Prairie," a popular
Canadian sitcom that depicts a Muslim community in a small
Saskatchewan town, has joined the trend of featuring
U.S.-Canada border relations. This time, however, the State
Department is the fall guy. A December 2007 episode
portrayed a Muslim economics professor trying to remove his
name from the No-Fly-List at a U.S. consulate. The show
depicts a rude and eccentric U.S. consular officer
stereotypically attempting to find any excuse to avoid being
Stellios is absolutely correct.
Worrying about a single minor character, in a fictional story, which is created by a small group of writers is retarded. How does this even qualify has America bashing? Does every single American portrayed in fiction outside of the US have to be a saint?
The funny thing is, 24, a show the report holds up as pro American, has tons of evil Americans, but somehow that is okay because its an American show.
This whole thing is idiotic. They even propose to apply pressure on the Canadian government to stop this. How is that not stifling free speach?
|Bottom line: yes it's funny when you read it, but put into context it's NOTHING. And you guys are reading way more into it than is reasonable given its limited scope.
And what are you talking about? How are we reading way more into it? Absolutely no one is blowing this up, other than you. You're the one assigning importance to it. And no one is saying it's not their job, that's a dumb argument. And you yourself admit it's funny, and yet you persist with your vague arguments. Stop being contrarian for the sake of it.
