Aggressively Anti-gay David Caton Claims To Be Decimating Al Jazeera America's Advertising
Good as you dot org. The name David Caton may not ring a bell, but you surely know at least one of his campaigns. He's the guy who flies banners over Disney Worldwhenever the "Gay Day" event comes to the Magic Kingdom, warning anyone in the area of the pesky LGBT people who might dare to see themselves as equally as entitled to riding Splash Mountain as anyone else. Caton has also gone after several different TV shows and networks for being too inclusive of LGBT human beings. For example, he claims to have convinced advertisers to pull from the hit Modern Family "because the show labels a same-sex couple with an adopted child as a modern family and attempts to normalize homosexuality by contrasting it with heterosexual couples that the show characterizes as abnormal." Another was Degrassi, which Caton went after for"affirming the homosexual and transgender lifestyles" coupled with attacks against the network, Teen Nick, for airing public service announcements "which lead children and teens toward, not away from embracing these behaviors." Oh, and Mr. Caton also uses "facts" from discredited researcher like Paul Cameron (PAUL. CAMERON!) to go after programs that are designed to support and protect LGBT youth. Just this year, Mr. Caton flew another round banners over Lady Gaga concerts reading "not born this way" in protest of the Born This Way Bus and the LGBT organizations (Bron This Way Foundation, Trevor Project, Campus Pride, etc.) involved. But it's not just LGBT. Oh no, no, no. Mr. Caton, who waged such a high profile onslaught against the All American Muslim TV show a few years back that it lead the New York Times to describe Caton as "Waging a One-Man War on American Muslims", has determined that 2013 will be the year that his organization takes on "countering the Islamist agenda in America" as its top priority. Which leads us to Caton's latest. In a campaign you'll likely hear more about in the days to come, the longtime anti-LGBT activist is now taking on Al Jazeera America, which launches nationwide today. Caton is claiming that his efforts have influence a whopping one hundred eighteen companies—ranging from small to massive, in all industries—to pull Al-Jazeera-UStheir advertising from the network.
