Wildlife Fund Ad Shows Planes Hitting NYC

From Fox News:

Outrage Grows Over Ad Showing Planes Crashing Into NYC

September 2, 2009

The World Wildlife Fund is joining a growing chorus of voices expressing outrage over an ad bearing its symbol that shows dozens of planes bearing down on lower Manhattan with a tag line that reads, "The Tsunami Killed 100 Times More People Than 9/11."

The ad was leaked in the week prior to the anniversary of the attacks of Sept 11, with copy that states, "The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it."

The WWF says it never approved the ad, issuing a press release to assure critics that it rejected the ad proposal, which was done by Brazilian design firm DDB Brasil…

It’s not like this is the first ad of its kind.

We have to get over our hang-up about 9/11. What’s 3,000 people more or less?

After all, this is the season of Ramadan.

Of peace and love to men of goodwill, as long as they are not kafirs.

(Thanks to BillK for the heads up.)

    Wow, at least the WWF realizes there are limits. Were this PETA, they would have gone with it.

    Outrage Grows Over Ad Showing Planes Crashing Into NYC

    The World Wildlife Fund is joining a growing chorus of voices expressing outrage over an ad bearing its symbol that shows dozens of planes bearing down on downtown Manhattan with a tag line that reads, “The Tsunami Killed 100 Times More People Than 9/11.”

    The ad was leaked in the week prior to the anniversary of the attacks of Sept 11, with copy that states, “The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.”

    The WWF says it never approved the ad, issuing a press release to assure critics that it rejected the ad proposal, which was designed by Brazilian design firm DDB Brasil.

    “WWF strongly condemns this offensive and tasteless ad and did not authorize its production or publication,” said a statement issued by the World Wildlife Fund on Tuesday. …

    The way things are going, the 9/11 enemy combatants will be enshrined on Mount Rushmore.

    The image is one of terrorism. If the planet is a terrorist, should we then hunt it down and kill it?

    Obama joked about his own WH fly over NYC ground zero. Same joke fest he laughed about Cheney having a heart attack. Health care? Obama dedicates a large amount of both his books to Indonesia.
    Obama wrote American giving millions to Indonesia after Tsunami was start, but not enough to end their hate and distrust towards America, (he falsely blames America for all their problems, to include not going over there and fighting a half-century ago, during Indonesia’s own civil war, getting rid of communism. Kind of contradicts his anti-Vietnam statements, etc. Why? Because with Obama it’s all about Obama. No telling what Hillary did on her secret trip to Indonesia (one of her first) aside telling them their leader Obama wished he had come, but promised he’d visit soon.

    Where have all the adults gone? Is there no one left with any decency? Are they aware of the families of the victims?

    WWF needs to go smoke a turd… (I meant that in a very adult way)

    Truly tasteless. Talk about a complete lack of utter scruple. If they even know what that word means. The events of 9-11 are permanently etched into my memory, from the impact of the planes hitting the World Trade Center, to the images of people holding hands as they leaped to their deaths rather than wait to be burned alive. How can anyone in good conscience make light of such an event? Yeah, I know, it’s because they have no conscience.

    Now I know what’s for dinner.
    Well done wildlife smothered in BBQ sauce, coleslaw, Bush Baked Beans and corn on the cob.
    Tomorrow we’re gonna have PETA shesh kabob with hot buns!

    That’s why we are at the top of the food chain baby!!

    Wow….the biggest atrocity on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor and the libs are already trying to downplay it or make us forget. It reminds me of PETA comparing chicken factories to the Holocaust. The difference is that one event (the tsunami) is an act of nature NOT controllable in any known way by human beings. 9/11 was a brutal attack by people who hate our country. It’s almost as if they want us to see 9/11 as petty compared to important things like recycling plastic bottles or shutting down a factory. After all, if a hurricane wipes out a city it is the fault of the greedy capitalistic white business males in suits right? The hurricane is nature demanding us to bow down, relinquish enterprise and worship (“respect”) mother Gaia.

    There must be a subliminal message to these liberal ads.They downplay real threats to America like Islamic violence (watch out for those veteran conservatives). And they demonize non-issues like carbon output, domestic oil, nuclear power, and tea parties. It’s almost as if they want the country to fail.

      To them, it ain’t. To them, it’s something we need to ‘get over’ and move on to more important stuff like nationalizing industry.

      This is a result of the failure of “why do they hate us.” When the attacks happened, liberals tried to tell us it was our fault–straight out, such as Ward Churchill’s “Chickens Coming Home to Roost” idiocy, but also in more subtle ways, trying to convince us that they felt forced to attack us because they “have no hope,” and that this is because of US intervention.

      If they could have made the working class believe that the 9-11 hijackers were true martyrs who were victims of capitalism, or the flat slander that Reagan trained bin Laden, they’d be plastering 9-11 over every TV screen as much as they pretend we do.
