Florida Family Association's 2017 Achievements.
Influenced 630 out of 657 companies to stop advertising at Huffingtonpost.com. Huffington Post calls America’s military racists, fundraises for CAIR, defends the Muslim Brotherhood and publishes Islamist propaganda. Huffington Post propaganda mocks, belittles and blames people who are concerned about radical Islam in a manner that impairs the willingness of some people to speak up for public safety. Florida Family Association started sending emails in April 2016 to encourage the CEO and Marketing Vice President of companies that advertise at Huffingtonpost.com to stop supporting the website's propaganda with its advertising dollars. Islamophobia propaganda is the top tool Islamists use to influence Americans to ignore advancement of Sharia doctrine in America. It intimidates people to the point of stifling free speech in a manner that hurts public safety. Fear of being branded an Islamophobe played a role in suppressing communications that may have saved the lives of 63 Jihad victims in San Bernardino and Orlando. This project will continue in 2018. Full report.
Influenced 207 out of 209 companies to stop advertising at Aljazeera.com. Al Jazeera, whose leaders espouse hate for Israel, who showed disdain for Paris murder victims, is a news company that is owned by the non-democratic, monarch styled emirate of Qatar. Qatar allows wealthy citizens to financially support ISIS, supports the Muslim Brotherhood, backs the head of Hamas, espouses Islamic Sharia law and does not afford citizens freedom of the press. Eighty one percent of respondents to an Al Jazeera survey said they support ISIS. Many of Al Jazeera's employees have actively supported al-Qaida, Hamas and other terrorist groups. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are demanding that Qatar take numerous steps to cut their support for terrorism including the closure Al Jazeera. This project will continue in 2018. Full report.
Countered Media Matters’ and Democratic Coalition’s attack on Sean Hannity’s advertisers. Media Matters and Democratic Coalition targeted companies that advertised on Sean Hannity because of his conservative values. Sean Hannity is a true American patriot. Hannity has reported news that no other cable news host has produced. He has relentlessly stood for traditional Judeo Christian values. Florida Family Association launched several email campaigns that urged advertisers to keep supporting the Sean Hannity Show. One email campaign allowed supporters to send emails to over fifty companies urging them to keep advertising on Hannity. Florida Family Association launched three separate email campaigns that urged USAA, Viking Cruises and TD Ameritrade to reinstate advertising on Sean Hannity. Media Matters and the Democratic Coalition have reported no new companies dropping Sean Hannity since Florida Family Association launched this email campaign to urge more than fifty companies to stay with Sean. This leftist attack on Sean Hannity is losing big thanks to the tens of thousands of emails that people are sending through the Floridafamily.org email server that is urging advertisers to stay with Sean Hannity. Florida Family Association will continue to monitor this situation in 2018 and respond. Full report.

Countered Huffingtonpost.com attack article aimed at firing a Catholic high school teacher who taught the historical truth about Islam.

Countered allure magazine’s push for acceptance of the oppressive Islamist symbol, the hijab with Fourth of July American colors. allure magazine promoted the hijab which symbolizes and epitomizes Islamist oppression of women and is rejected by 57% of the Muslim women living in America.

The magazine also included eight pages of hijab photographs. The allure cover headline states: “This is an American Beauty.” Sounds just like other leftist media such as The Learning Channel which sought to push its propaganda to normalize Islamist program titled “All-American Muslim.” The cover subheading states: “Meet Halima.

Gen. Bradley Webb to demand the Air Force cut its ties with Patrick Dunleavy. CAIR claimed Dunleavy is associated with an “anti-Muslim propaganda mouthpiece, and has made a number of false statements betraying a personal prejudice against Islam and Muslims.” Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that urged people to send emails, post Facebook messages, tweets and post messages in contact forms to President Trump, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford.
