We’ve often said in this space that in ridicule is the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of the Counter-Jihad; it’s one that our enemies have no defense against.
Now there’s a car dealership in Ohio that gets it, according to yesterday’s Columbus Dispatch:

Some Columbus radio stations have rejected as insensitive an advertisement for a car dealership that invokes Islamic references.
The general manager of the dealership, though, says the promotions — which he called “tongue-in-cheek” — will air on some stations beginning next week.
In the spot, Keith Dennis of Dennis Mitsubishi talks about “launching a jihad on the automotive market.”
Sales representatives “will be wearing burqas all weekend long,” the ad says. One of the vehicles on sale “can comfortably seat up to 12 jihadists in the back.”
“Our prices are lower than the evildoers’ every day. Just ask the pope!” the ad says. “Friday is fatwa Friday, with free rubber swords for the kiddies.”
Don’t you love it?
Readers who are in or near Columbus: if you’re in need of a car, please go down to Dennis Mitsubishi and look at what they’ve got. Those guys deserve as much business as they can get — the bodyguards and bullet-proof vests are cutting into their profits.
Not everyone in the radio business is free of the PC mindset, however:
Jeff Wilson, general manager of Radio One stations WCKX (107.5 FM), WJYD (106.3 FM) and WXMG (98.9 FM), doesn’t intend to air the spot.
“We won’t play that,” Wilson said. “With no disrespect to their creativity or their desire to build business, everything we’re about is promoting the values of diversity. To air things of that sort would go against our mission statement.”
Yup. Got it. Mission Statement. Diversity. All the key words are in place.
But the general manager of Dennis Auto Point, Aaron Masterson, doesn’t see the problem:
Calling the commercial aggressive, Masterson said, “This is one where we feel we’re taking a bull’s-eye on terrorists. After all the nonsense that the terrorists put the public through, they’re fair game.”
He must be doing something right, because the usual suspects are offended:
The president of the Columbus chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, doesn’t think terrorism is to be taken lightly.
Asma Mobin-Uddin said she is concerned the ad’s tone and imagery are “mocking and disrespectful to many different areas. One is Islamic faith and Islamic culture.”
This commercial spot was written in-house by the dealership. You know as well as I do that no advertising agency or marketing firm would ever put such an ad together. Change comes from the bottom up.
If the manager of a car dealership in Columbus gets it, then anyone can get it.
After all these years of being mau-maued by CAIR, after all the treacly propaganda ladled onto their viewers and readers by the MSM, after all the diversity training and multicultural outreach forced onto the public by the politically correct power structure — despite all this, ordinary people are getting the message.
Despite the efforts of their betters, they understand the Islamic world all too well.
