The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Ahh, Diversity: State Department's 2009 Churches of America Calendar [BUMPED]


As of right now (10PM in the Eastern time zone), the web offering for "Mosques of America" has been pulled, instead sending readers to the following page:

"You need to login to access this page." (Click to zoom)

What? Do you cretins "public servants" over in the State Department get all nervous when We, The People actually notice what you're up to?

By the People, for the People Muslims, indeed.

Update 17 Jul: Thanks to the ever-vigilant Mr. Robert Spencer for getting a screencap of the site before it was yanked!

As of this morning, Barry Lynn's group of Christian-hating communists is still shockingly silent on this issue. My surprise-ometer? Let's just say it ain't "pegged."

Get yours now, as they're only available in a limited run before Christmas.

Yes, it's officially printed by order of the State Department, on the taxpayer dime.

But as you've probably guessed, some of the details I'm mentioning here are adjusted, ever so slightly.

In celebration of Christmas, Global Publishing Solutions (GPS) is offering a limited edition of the 2009 Churches in America Wall Calendar. This 12-month calendar is perfect for Christian outreach efforts, as well as office and event giveaways.

Barry Lynn, infamous and oft-derided Church-State separator? Missing in action, just as expected.

(h/t mikey_hates_everything—I know the feeling, incidentally.)

Update: Ron of Isophorone Blog suggests that we use Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Adobe Photoshop™ to come up with our own official State Department calendars. Collect 'em, trade 'em—I'm firing up my handy-dandy copy of Photoshop as we speak.

Update: "Muslim Murderers*" in America. You know you want to pick a copy up today!
Limited edition, yo.

Other ideas? We could always take the serious approach, of course, and postulate what a publication printed by the U.S. government with the intent of proselytizing to Christians would look like. Or any other (non-PROTECTED) religion, for that matter.

I'll leave it to you, the reader to decide where this bit goes next.

Update: With thanks to DhimmiWatch reader StillBreathing for the inspiration:


* [Editor's note for the lawyerly types:—The persons depicted in this hypothetical calendar are arrested, accused of murder via honor killings, but are not yet convicted at the present time. As such, it should be pointed out that the pictured individuals are alleged murderers. They are, however, definitely Muslims.]

Ahhh, but they'd be great fodder for Photoshop image alteration!

hahahahaha.. oh this can get juicy!! This is a 28 page calendar?!?!? How many months do Muslims have in a year?

This pandering sh*t makes me sick.
Here are some of the other government paid productions:
[b]Jazz Appreciation Month[/b] - The CD features a wide variety of “roots music” by individuals and communities — from the Atlantic to the Pacific and down to the Caribbean.

[b]Earth Day 2008[/b] poster - a stunning full-color, two-sided poster in support of the International Year of the Reef 2008.

[b]Women's History Month[/b] - The illustrated, 36-page publication features the lives of notable women like Sacagawea and Sojourner Truth who have helped shape American society.

[b]Black History Month[/b] - IIP PUBS' Justice For All: The Legacy of Thurgood Marshall tells the story of Justice Marshall's life and achievements, capped by his victory in the landmark Supreme Court Case Brown vs. Board of Education that made him the 20th century's great architect of American race relations. (Yeah, that was a great momentous occasion - plus MANY more books about civil rights issues.)

American Roots Music CD[/b] - The Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) is pleased to announce the launch of its first music CD, "American Roots Music," in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution's Folkways Recordings. IIP embarked on this project at the suggestion of posts that wanted a product suitable for [b]gift-giving to host country contacts[/b]. If this initial project is successful, IIP intends to collaborate with Smithsonian Folkways Recordings on additional CDs, including youth-oriented musical productions. The "American Roots Music" CD carries 20 tracks for a total of 67 minutes.

Yeah, nothing like pandering. Hmm, nothing about how whites changed and bettered the world. Would Sacagawea be noteworthy if it was not for white man's quest for knowledge and adventure and making people's lives better? I don't want to sound racist. I am not. But, these publications and this agency is only being one sided...........on a government dime.

Barry?? hello?

As luck would have it, the State Department - at "Dipnotes," its official blog - has invited the public to "Tell Us What You Think" about its "Social Media" efforts. Seems to me such a calendar would fit quite nicely into that category.
