The far-right Florida Family Association is planning to run an aerial banner this Sunday before the Cincinnati Bengals game criticizing Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble, for running ads on Al Jazeera America.
The banner reads, ‘Procter & Gamble Sponsors Jihad TV.’
The FFA used a similar tactic when targeting Lady Gaga and ‘Gay Day’ at Disney. The fringe group has taken credit for having 128 companies drop their ads on Al Jazeera America, and similarly pressured companies to stop advertising on shows like All-American Muslim, Family Guy, Modern Family and Degrassi.
The FFA is a tiny organization run by David Caton, who became involved with the Religious Right after admitting to an addiction to pornography, and has warned that President Obama and Muslim-Americans are pushing an Islamist takeover of America.
The introduction of Al Jazeera America has led to an outpouring of anti-Muslim sentiment from right-wing commentators, and it seems that some companies may be mistaking the stunts of conspiratorial activists like Caton as popular discontent with the network.
