I can’t believe this is still an issue being argued.
I, like everyone else, said my piece on this when it happened. Apparently, it’s not over just yet. I’m still just angered beyond words about this.
First off, a video game company and a toy company decide to license the same sound bank, so two products give the same “message” to the youth. It happens. Get over it. This is not the Islamic conspiracy hard at work. You tin-foil hat wearing nutjobs.
Second, this woman would have heard whatever she needed to garner media attention. Simple as that. It’s evidentally lonely being a housewife in good 'ole Indiana. Tough. Get over it. This isn’t news.
Now, let’s play a game. Let’s say that the DS game and the doll were actually saying “Islam is the Light” deliberately. Wow! Such a powerful message of hate! Right? Obviously. We all know that “Islam is the Light” is just one step away from “kill your parents, kick the cat, and destroy America.”
Of course we do.
Not to mention the fact that there’s no message here. These toys are no more saying “Islam is the Light” than a Black Sabbath record played backwards is telling you to “go to church and do your chores.”
How about “Christianity is the Light?” Still offended and fearful for the children?
But what if it is just a big conspiracy and I’m wrong? Now we’re in trouble. Real trouble. Because everyone knows that a handful of terrorists and religious zealots represent the whole of Islam! Just like the Crusades represented the whole of Christianity! Surely we’re all doomed. How could I be so stupid as to not see the signs when they’re right under my nose! :
Perhaps we should be going after the yo-yo companies while we’re at it? Surely there’s some evil stuff going on there. Heck, I don’t even have to stretch to find the corrupting and evil messages in our hobby! No talking dolls or heavy metal music here! I have a yo-yo that says “Dark Magic” right on the sides! Written in plain English!
Uh, oh! I’ve got another one here with the “all-seeing eye” on it! Surely the Illuminati has already taken control of the children!
Geez, these people irk me in a way I can’t even describe…
And I’m a Republican. Go figure.
