Florida Family Association's 2021 Achievements.
Helped influence the Salvation Army to pull controversial racism guide. Fox News reports: Salvation Army pulls controversial racism guide amid public outcry. The Salvation Army has removed a document from its website called "Let’s Talk About Race" after criticism over the racially charged language instructing white people and Christians to "evaluate" racist attitudes and practices. "Elements of the recently issued ‘Let’s Talk About Racism’ guide led some to believe we think they should apologize for the color of their skin, or that The Salvation Army may have abandoned its Biblical beliefs for another philosophy or ideology," the Salvation Army posted on its website. "That was never our intention, so the guide has been removed for appropriate review." Florida Family Association sent out email alerts that encouraged thousands of people to send emails to express concern to Salvation Army officials and national advisory board members regarding them pushing the Marxist doctrine of Critical Race Theory. Numerous news outlets and several other organizations also encouraged people to express concern to Salvation Army officials. However, to our knowledge Florida Family Association was the only organization that targeted 14 Salvation Army national advisory board members in the email campaign. Full report.
Started a new campaign to influence companies to stop supporting Joy Reid’s anti-white, racist program content with customer money. Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC epitomizes the harmful elements of Critical Race Theory (CRT). Reid is so prolific with anti-white hate speech that Tucker Carlson on Fox News calls her “the race lady.” The ReidOut’s host, sit in hosts and some contributors practice anti-white labeling that is offensive, racist and likely inspires hate among some viewers of this show. One example of her content: Joy Reid compared Kyle Rittenhouse's not guilty verdict to white slave traders having their way with an unfair judicial system that they started. Reid’s racist rhetoric furthers racism, delays real healing, wrongfully damages the self esteem of white people and unjustly instills hate in the hearts of black people toward white people. Florida Family Association is contacting every company that advertises every week on The ReidOut. Full report.
Countered the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) law suit which sought to eradicate the United States Terror Watchlist. CAIR sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on April 5, 2016 on behalf of 23 Muslims. The lawsuit challenged the validity of the Terror Screening Database the official name for the Terror Watchlist that is used by law enforcement and the private sector to protect millions of Americans and the citizens of several other countries from terrorism. Florida Family Association launched many online campaigns that encouraged the District Court Judge and all of the judges on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to make public safety the priority in this case. The email prepared for sending to the judges stated: “I respectfully urge you not to give terrorists an advantage at the expense of the safety of American lives by affirming specific rules or unprecedented relief that may not work and could help terrorists in Anas Elhady v. Charles Kable. Requiring Government procedures for seeking redress for an individual’s alleged placement on the Terror Screening Database that go beyond what is necessary to satisfy Due Process could result in incorrect watchlist placement and jeopardize public safety.” Florida Family Association supporters sent tens of thousands of emails to both courts during the five years of litigation. On March 30, 2021, a three judge panel at the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit unanimously ruled to uphold the Terror Watchlist. CAIR petitioned for rehearing en banc on May 14, 2021 before the full 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The appellate court ruled on May 28, 2021: “The petition for rehearing en banc was circulated to the full court. No judge requested a poll under Fed. R. App. P. 35. The court denies the petition for rehearing en banc.” Not even one judge wanted to reconsider CAIR’s ludicrous challenge. CAIR declined to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court (for obvious reasons.) CAIR lost. Their challenge is over. Full report.
Countered leftists’ attempts to take over the election process with S.1 “For the People Act” and undo the 60 vote cloture rule. Fox News reported: The massive election reform measure that House Democrats passed this week is "welfare for politicians" and "seeks to undermine voter ID laws," among other "dangerous and unconstitutional" measures, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey told "America Reports" on March 5, 2021. Morrisey said: “This is a very dangerous bill, and at its core, this is a major power grab by Congress and by Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi. If you look at the Constitution, the Constitution lays out how elections are going to be set forth. There's obviously some role for the federal government in a number of the elections. There's a primary role for the state government. This bill is trying to wipe out a significant amount of the state's role in managing elections. What is that going to do? Number one, it's going to undermine voter ID, which I think is critical, and it helps to reduce fraud. It's in place in 35 states.” Florida Family Association launched several email campaigns that encouraged people to urge moderate Democrat senators to oppose S.1 “For the People Act” and to uphold the 60 vote cloture rule. S.1 failed in the United States Senate and the 60 vote cloture rule was kept in place. Full report.
Countered leftist “Equality Act” H.R. 5 which sought to elevate right to be transgender over First Amendment religious liberties and women’s rights. Radical leftists want to make it clear that a person’s right to unscientifically choose his sex as a she and impose that choice in female restrooms and unfairly compete against real females in athletic events is superior to the First Amendment Rights under the United State’s Constitution which states in part “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” The leftist H.R.5 titled “Equality Act” makes it clear that a person’s gender identity is superior to the constitutionally protected free exercise of religion. H.R.5 amendment proposes in part: “SEC. 1107. Claims. “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under, a covered title, or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.” H.R.5 amendment to SEC. 1107 means gender identity and wokeness trump the First Amendment. Your right to govern your business, your church, your synagogue, your private school by Judeo-Christian values or even real science regarding gender identity would be unlawful. Violators of this act may quickly find themselves at the very expensive end of defending legal action brought against them by the United States Department of Justice. The Congressional Summary of H.R.5 states in part: “The bill allows the Department of Justice to intervene in equal protection actions in federal court on account of sexual orientation or gender identity.” H.R.5 also allows the he/she to sue people who violate the law. H.R.5 passed the United States House of Representatives by a 224 to 206 vote. It moved to the Senate, where 60 votes are required to overcome the filibuster, which would bring the bill to a vote. Florida Family Association launched several email campaigns that encouraged people to send emails to urge moderate Democrat senators to oppose the “Equality Act.” Thus far this bill has not passed the senate. Full report.
Countering the socialist spending bill ($3.75 trillion then reduced to $1.75) (aka Build Back Better). Democrats proceeded to push their socialist and New Green Deal spending plans after the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed on November 5, 2021. The bill was allegedly reduced from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion in hopes of garnering Senators Manchin’s and Sinema’s vote. U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham had this to say about the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill. "This is the biggest step toward socialism in my lifetime." Socialism is hostile toward a wide range of liberties that Americans have cherished for hundreds of years. Socialism is very oppressive toward religious liberties especially towards Christians and Jews. Socialism has a long history of suppressing freedom of speech which we witness daily in the leftist run “cancel culture.” Energy costs, grocery expenses, Social Security, Medicare, the economy and jobs are all in jeopardy from the $1.75 trillion in new and excessive spending proposed in the Build Back Better bill. The increasing gasoline prices and energy costs will likely go even higher with the left's obsession with the New Green Deal which is a huge part of the Build Back Better bill. This bill will take away valuable resources at a time when measures should be taken to secure the future of Social Security and Medicare. Additionally, the cost of paying for these never paid for by taxpayer social programs would further hurt the economy and American jobs. It is fiscally irresponsible for congress to throw more new money on the inflation fire that will break the budgets of more American families and burden them with entitlement programs that will endure forever. Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema have both expressed concerns regarding the costs of Build Back Better. Democrats need both senators’ votes to pass the $1.75 trillion socialist spending bill. Florida Family Association launched several email campaigns that encouraged people to send emails to urge Senators Manchin and Sinema to oppose the socialist spending bill. This campaign will continue in 2022 if the legislation continues. Full report.
Urged Hasbro to back away from Critical Race Theory after whistleblower claimed CRT being pushed through toy packaging; training says 6 month olds can be racist. David Johnson, an engineer contracting with Hasbro through an IT recruitment firm, told Sean Hannity on July 19, 2021 that when he received an announcement scheduling a critical race theory-related training, he immediately felt the foresight to record the lecture. Johnson, who first shared his story with Project Veritas, told host Sean Hannity that Conscious Kids co-founder Kate Ishizuka-Stephens declared during the training that "by 3 to 6 months, babies are beginning to notice and already express preference by race.” Critical Race Theory (CRT) falsely declares that if you are white you are bad because you are inherently racist and if you are black you are a victim of that white racism. CRT’s contention that all white Americans are racist is blatantly bigoted, repugnant to humanity and a disgrace to Judeo-Christian values. Pushing CRT’s racist false doctrine on children furthers racism, delays real healing, wrongfully damages the self esteem of white children and unjustly instills hate in the hearts of black children toward white children. Hasbro is the largest toy maker in the world. In 2020, Hasbro had the highest annual revenue of the selected toy companies, generating revenues of approximately 7.21 billion U.S. dollars. The number of children that come in contact with Hasbro toys is monumental. Therefore, the company’s potential negative influence on children regarding alleged plans to advance Critical Race Theory could be enormous. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to send emails to express concern to Hasbro officials regarding the report that alleges the company is planning to push the outrageously racist Critical Race Theory doctrine on children. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Thanked Southwest Airlines for not caving to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) demand that it fire an airline attendant for alleged discrimination. Fatima Altakrouri, a Muslim woman, chose two seats for her and her sister, Muna Kowni, next to the emergency exit. A flight attendant determined that Fatima did not speak English and could not sit next to the exit because policy required that they speak English in case of an emergency. Fatima wore a hijab but her sister did not. The Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of CAIR filed a complaint alleging that Southwest Airlines discriminated against Fatima on the grounds of her religion. Southwest spokesperson Brandy King said: "Our internal reports from the flight do not support claims made by the passenger regarding comments or decisions being made based upon appearance. The safety of our passengers is paramount, and individuals seated in an exit row are required to verbally indicate that they can perform certain duties in flight. Our Crew is responsible for getting that confirmation from a passenger before seating them in an overawing exit row and was unable to gain acknowledgment from the passenger during boarding. Therefore, as a courtesy, the Crew offered her an alternate seat." CAIR used this situation like dozens of other times to push it’s agenda to Islamize America and intimidate the Americans. Southwest Airlines did not cower to CAIR. Instead, it performed due diligence by conducting an investigation and stood by the flight attendant. Southwest Airlines could have gone woke but it didn't. It reported the truth. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign for people to send emails to thank Southwest Airlines officials for performing due diligence as well as standing by their flight attendant and not cowering to the woke political agenda of the CAIR. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Influenced so many companies to stop advertising at HuffPost that parent company Verizon sold it to avoid more losses from the leftist website. 1,586 out of 1,613 companies stopped advertising at HuffPost. HuffPost.com supports the Islamist political agenda and spews vitriolic propaganda that inspires leftist hate. HuffPost.com calls America’s military racists, fundraises for CAIR, defends the Muslim Brotherhood and publishes Islamist propaganda. HuffPost 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. Islamophobia propaganda is the top tool Islamists use to influence Americans to ignore advancement of Sharia doctrine in America. Florida Family Association started sending emails in April 2016 to encourage the CEO and Marketing Vice President of companies that advertise at Huffpost.com to stop supporting the website's propaganda with its customers’ money. HuffPost’s new parent company BuzzFeed laid off 47 employees in March 2021 to stem a $20 million deficit. HuffPost CEO Jonah Peretti told staffers that HuffPost’s losses totaled around $20 million in 2020. “Though BuzzFeed is a profitable company, we don’t have the resources to support another two years of losses,” Peretti said. This project will continue in 2022. Full report.
Influenced 849 out of 859 companies to stop advertising at Aljazeera.com aka Al Jazeera America. Aljazeera.com is referred to as Al Jazeera America by web news feeds. 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 allowed wealthy citizens to financially support ISIS, supported the Muslim Brotherhood, backed the head of Hamas, espouses Islamic Sharia law and does not afford citizens freedom of the press. Eighty one percent of 38,000 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 demanded that Qatar take numerous steps to cut their support for terrorism including the closure of Al Jazeera. American companies that advertise with Aljazeera.com are giving United States consumer dollars to an Islamist-Sharia minded regime. FFA’s communications with advertisers informs Corporate America about Qatar’s history and Islamist public policy and educates corporate officials about Sharia law. FFA’s online campaigns to companies that are reluctant to stop advertising show Corporate America that there are many Americans who are very concerned about the Islamist political threat to American freedoms and way of life. This project will continue in 2022. Full report.
Urged U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to stop supporting the judicial nomination of far left political activists. Tucker Carlson produced a segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight which reported that: “Lindsey Graham is the only Republican who has not voted to reject a single judge the Biden administration has proposed no matter how crazy they are. For procedural reasons in a senate that is split 50-50, Lindsey Graham’s support matters very much. Senate aides tell us that because of Lindsey Graham, one man, the Biden administration is able to rush its nominees through senate confirmation process faster than any other president in memory. So the most radical president of our lifetime gets the most judges confirmed thanks to Lindsey Graham.” Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to send emails to urge Senator Lindsey Graham to stop supporting the judicial nomination of far left political activists. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Is countering the Council on American Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) lawsuit which seeks to invalidate the “No Fly List” which protects tens of millions of travelers. CAIR's lawsuit seeks to stop vital counter-terrorism measures that protect American travelers from terrorists and people who are closely tied to them. CAIR issued a news release in the fall of 2018 titled: “CAIR Files Broad Challenge to Watchlisting System, Including TSA's Quiet Skies Program.” CAIR’s press release on the filing of this lawsuit states: “Quiet Skies punishes those who—through family, community or the workplace— have relationships with individuals the federal government has designated as a ‘known or suspected terrorist.’” Florida Family Association launched an online campaign that allows people to send emails to urge the judge to make our public safety the priority in this case. This campaign will continue in 2022. Full report.
Countered Coke when it went woke against laws that could prevent voter fraud. Coca Cola’s CEO James Quincey vigorously challenged Georgia’s new voter law. Quincey’s official statement posted at the Coca Cola website did not provide specific reasons for his opposition. It appears that his opposition is for leftist woke reasons that are inconsistent with the language of the Georgia statute. Quincey supports the U.S. Senate bill S. 1 “For The People Act” which would exacerbate voter fraud across the nation, infringe upon free speech, establish an unconstitutional federal takeover of the election process and force taxpayers to fund political campaigns. How bad are the leftists’ lies regarding Georgia’s new voter law? It’s bad enough that The Washington Post, perhaps the most liberal news paper in America, gave Joe Biden FOUR Pinocchios for his lies about Georgia’s new voter law. Rasmussen Reports found that 75% of Americans support voter ID laws in its March 23, 2021 report. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to send emails to express concern to Coca Cola officials regarding it’s woke position on voter laws. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Countering another leftist bill that seeks to federalize election rules that could empower them to legalize corrupt voting practices and plan to try to abolish 60 vote cloture (filibuster) rule again. The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act is the left’s latest bill this year which seeks to federalize elections and take control of voting regulations away from the states. This legislation specifically allows the federal government to promulgate any rule they choose for state and local election offices. This means the federal government could: Mandate mail in ballots for every elector in every state; Prohibit states from requiring voter identification; Allow ballot harvesting where activists go door to door and complete the ballot for the elector; Allow private drop boxes which activists can stuff with their manufactured ballots or never turn in ballots for precincts with demographics that favor their electoral opponents; Allow corporations to give private grants to local election offices under the guise of helping to fund operations but actually have strings attached which require the election office to handle ballots in the way that best serves certain activists. This legislation passed the U.S. House of Representatives on August 24, 2021. At the writing of this document, the bill was in the United States Senate. Florida Family Association launched several email alerts that encouraged people to send emails to urge moderate Democrat senators to oppose this legislation. This campaign will continue in 2022 if the legislation continues. Full report.
Challenged Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s and Kroger for cancelling American made My Pillow because of Mike Lindell’s beliefs while these three companies sell loads of merchandise from Communist China. Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s and Kroger are so deeply troubled by Mike Lindell’s constitutionally protected speech that it cancels business relations with him but these companies do not react the same way regarding its products made in Communist China which imprison citizens if they express a political opinion different from the party. There is no First Amendment free speech in China. So these retailers in effect censored citizens like Communist China. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to send emails to express concern to these companies. Full report.
Countered leftist RINO attack on free speech of American corporations to donate to whomever they choose especially elected officials who challenge election fraud. Toyota reported that it would no longer donate to members of Congress who voted against certifying the 2020 election in January 2021 after the company was pressured by The Lincoln Project, a political action committee founded by Republicans to help defeat former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Lincoln Project announced that it would release a series of advertisements directed at companies that donated to policymakers who opposed certifying the election on Jan. 6, beginning with Toyota. Toyota caved after having previously said that it was wrong to judge members of Congress based solely on their votes on the electoral certification. Toyota’s original position should have stood the test of time since the only thing that changed was a few leftist RINOs wanted to punish companies that supported members of congress who had doubts about the election process. The very few people who call themselves Republicans and hate Donald Trump should not have the final word regarding the legitimate questioning of election fraud by 147 elected representatives. The vast majority, close to 95%, of Republicans do not hold this position so why should this small group of whiners have so much clout. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to urge Toyota to reconsider the position that it originally held not to judge members of Congress based solely on their votes on the electoral certification. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Challenged companies to stop advertising on MSNBC hate spewing and racist show All In With Chris Hayes. In January 2021, Chris Hayes set up Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) with this question: “How do you understand the nature of the caucus of the Republican Party that you serve with right now ... in the aftermath of this and the vote they took to overturn the election and this desire to quote turn the page?” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded: “.. but this term there are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and the core of the Republican caucus. There are no consequences in the Republican caucus for violence. No consequences for racism. No consequences for misogyny. No consequences for insurrection. And no consequences mean that they condone it. It means that that silence is acceptance.” It appears that AOC was prepared to perform this contrived, divisive leftist theatre after Chris Hayes set her up with the question. This is hate speech at its worst. At a time when America needs calm and social healing MSNBC hosts AOC to manufacture propaganda that anyone could see would very likely inspire more hate and angst among leftist viewers toward conservatives. Florida Family Association launched an email campaign that encouraged people to send emails of concern to the companies that advertised on Chris Hayes. This campaign is still active at floridafamily.org. Full report.
Attempted to influence companies not to advertise on all Fake Five News Networks, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NBC. Florida Family Association against its better judgment from 33 years of experience attempted to capture all of the companies that advertise on these five mostly reckless news networks and urge them to stop advertising. The huge target of hundreds of advertisers on dozens of shows, as we calculated several times before, was just too large and evasive to produce the desired results that Florida Family Association has achieved in the past when one show is targeted at a time. Florida Family Association started a campaign to counter MSNBC’s The ReidOut for its anti-white hate content and plans to evaluate more shows in 2022 on these five networks for possible future campaigns. Full report.
Christianpost.org reports the following regarding Florida Family Association: “Don't let the name deceive you. Florida Family Association is a national organization that harnesses online citizen activism through its massive email list to change organizations through economic and public pressure. They urge companies not to advertise on the Islamic terror apologist network Al Jazeera, remind universities to support free speech and not cancel films and speakers critical of Islamism, and hold the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) feet to the fire for their leaders past support for terrorism and saying Muslims are above the law of the land.” Christianpost.org report.
The Council on American Islamic Relations reports the following in their Islamophobia Report about Florida Family Association: “The Florida Family Association, founded in 1987 by David Caton, has pressured companies and courts to adhere to anti-Muslim practices. Despite operating only in Florida, FFA has garnered national attention. FFA is part of the U.S. Islamophobia network's inner core.” CAIR report.
