Flying over Hate?


Kevin –

Flying a plane over a football game to promote hatred may seem inconceivable, but it’s apparently real.

The stunt was planned by David Caton and the Florida Family Association, an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled a hate group. Caton and the Florida Family Association told Proctor & Gamble it would fly a banner declaring “Proctor & Gamble Sponsors Jihad TV” during the Green Bay Packers v Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday. 

We don’t tolerate bullying at AFV, whether that bullying is Wall Street taking advantage of working families or people like Caton and the FFA spreading hate against Muslim men and women. This is not the first time he’s used bullying tactics, it’s just the most recent. This is why we are starting a campaign to stop him.

For years, Caton and the FFA have used extreme language and inflammatory actions to needlessly and cruelly discriminate against families in his native Florida and around the country. This time, they targeted Proctor & Gamble, but not because of bad business practices or anything that makes logical sense. Instead they went after P&G with language that hurts individuals, communities and free speech.

P&G advertises on Al Jazeera America, a news network that Caton and his group erroneously claim is promoting radical Muslim organizations. It’s ironic, the Florida Family Association used its constitutionally protected right to free speech to muzzle the free speech of the press.
