Behead Your Television

A report from the news service France24 (thanks to Jihad Watch) informs us that a flash mob of "Islamists" in Tunisia -- i.e., ordinary Muslims still aflush with the Arab Spring -- littered the beach with their television sets (from the photograph in the story, it looks like at least 100 to 200 TVs) as a sign of protest against the "corruption" of that medium -- i.e., of its failure to comport with the pre-medieval Koran and Hadiths.

This should please the Leftist "Kill Your Television" bumper-sticker crowd (one of the first influential Leftists to arrogantly denounce the television in terms of a Leftishly supercilious "We elites know better than the people" social engineering was Newton Minow, appointed Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission by that other extremely influential Leftist, President John Kennedy, who countenanced Minow's public and now famous statement that "television is a vast wasteland") -- but you can bet your sweet bippy that if and/or when the Muslims came after their LED TV Vizio M3D0KDs, the Leftists and many a PC MC will fall on their knees and beg: "Please! How can I live without Dexter, or Curb Your Enthusiasm, or Californication, or Weeds, or my PBS mainstays like the Jim Lehrer News Hour, or the Simon & Garfunkel Graceland Tour, or Charlie Rose or Tavis Smiley...!!! Take my wife, take my daughters, take my head! Anything but my TV!!!"
