It’s a day ending with a y, so you can be sure that the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is enraged about something. This time it’s underwear, and it is demanding that Amazon drop its drawers. Or, as CAIR’s National Communications Director and spokesman, Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper, put it in his press release, “CAIR Calls on Amazon to Drop Seller’s Insulting Underwear Line Embossed with Islamic Testimony of Faith.”
In its press release, CAIR “called online retailer Amazon to remove a line of men’s underwear and boxer briefs that offensively displays the Islamic Shahadah in Arabic calligraphy, the testimony of Islamic faith and one of the five pillars of Islam. The product is listed on Amazon as being sold by Chinese clothing distributer Guangzhou Yumei.”
The offending drawers are is listed as “CUTEDWARF La-Ilaha-Illallah-Muhammadur-Rasulullah Men’s Boxer Briefs Sexy Underwear Slim Fit Tights Sports Briefs Pajamas Black.” The Arabic text means: “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the messenger of Allah,” which is the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.
CAIR claims that “it received complaints about the item offered by Amazon seller Guangzhou Yumei being offensive to Muslims because the Islamic testimony of faith would be worn disrespectfully over the crotch.” Unfortunately, Hooper did not explain how the Amazon shoppers who complained to CAIR found the item in the first place. Searches at Amazon for “Islamic briefs,” “Islamic underwear,” and “shahada underwear” do not bring up the offensive item. What were CAIR’s complainers searching for? Maybe just material they could claim to find offensive and demand that Amazon remove?
As of this writing on Saturday morning, the briefs are not yet gone from Amazon. However, in the past Amazon has removed material CAIR demanded it remove. In fact, the CAIR press release notes that the Hamas-linked organization already has a few notches in its belt in this line: “In 2019, CAIR helped secure Amazon’s removal of a number of doormats, bathmats and other items imprinted with Islamic calligraphy, references to the Prophet Muhammad and verses from the Quran, Islam’s holy text.” And it wants more: “CAIR however notes that Amazon continues to profit from the sale of pro-confederate digital audio books like the ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War,’ despite public calls from groups like CAIR to drop such materials.”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
