The Perfect Man
A billboard (see picture below) seen on Interstate 465 in Indiana features the headline “The Perfect Man,” and lists six
bullet point items describing him.
The billboard has been traced to Don Woodsmall, a principal for an advertising firm named LightPoint Impressions, who
said that he sold the ad to a “group of patriotic Americans” who were denied advertising by national companies.
“Their desire, born out of love and not hate, is to launch a national conversation,” Woodsmall said in a statement. “After
talking to a half-dozen Islamic scholars and receiving and reviewing numerous citations from Islamic law and literature, I
was convinced that each point listed on the billboard was historically and factually true.”
Woodsmall refused to name the group behind the ad, saying they had requested anonymity. However, the caption
‘Educate Truthophobes’ appears at the bottom of the ad. A quick Google search of the phrase shows results for an
organization called ‘Truthophobes,’ which it says is dedicated to “exposing Islam and the left who fear the truth.”
So, guess who’s upset about the billboard ad? Go ahead, I’ll give you one –and only one- guess!
If you guessed Muslims, you’d be correct!
Several Muslim groups have criticized the sign. The Muslim Alliance of Indiana has described it as “an attack on all
“It is a horrible billboard,” said Rima Shahid, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana. “I’m outraged by it, but
saddened at the same time. At any point this would have been highly offensive, but we’re in the holiest month of our faith,
when we slow down and reconnect with our communities,” he reportedly continued, claiming that the billboard
“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Faryal Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America. “We’ve seen them
in New York and several other cities on billboards as well as other transit ads.”
Some politicians have wasted no time denouncing the sign. Indiana Senator Todd Young (R) tweeted Monday night:
“This is beneath us -- disturbing and divisive. Displays like this incite and offend rather than educate” and Indiana Rep.
Andre Carson (D) believes the billboard’s author took Islamic text out of context “just like Al-Qaeda, ISIS and the Klan do to
religious texts to justify their bigotry.”
But, take a good look at the picture. What’s missing?
NOWHERE does it say Mohammed! NOWHERE does it say Islam! NOWHERE!
The Muslim Alliance of Indiana has described it as “an attack on all Muslims?” How do they know it's about their
religious leader and their religion in general if the sign doesn't say it's Muhammad or doesn’t display his picture? How
are they so sure it was aimed at Islam and Muhammad if no mention was made on the ad? Kind of sounds like they
know the truth! Hurts, don’t it?
The beauty of this is that it doesn't include anything directly pointing to Islam, yet Muslims still immediately know it's about
This is America. People have a right to free speech. If you don't like it you can leave."
The board names nobody.
Why would Muslims assume it’s talking about Mohammed? I find it extremely interesting that they know EXACTLY who is
being referred to here! IF what is stated is not factual then how do they know who the person in question actually is?
Are they are upset to learn that Mohammed was a bandit? Are they admitting it's true about their nymphomaniac,
pedophile mass-murdering founder? Are they really offended by their own prophet? Maybe they should read their
Koran. I did and it damn near turned me into an Atheist. In fact, the billboard left a lot of stuff out – probably to save
Exactly how brain dead do you have to be to see the irony and cognitive dissonance in their argument that this is offensive
Listen up, liberal, leftist snowflakes. The truth doesn't care about your feelings! If Kathy Griffin and Stephen Colbert can
do and say as they did - then I don't want to hear jackshit from you over this sign.
