Islamicize Me. A video series from David Wood. Three friends vow to follow the teachings of Mohammed for 30 days. These videos are polemical and satirical. They have caused some controversy in the apologetics community. James White has been one of the critics of this series.

One of the participants knew one of the three guys who became radicalized and tried to kill the people at a Draw Mohammed event involving Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer. This event helped shape the series and Robert Spencer appears as himself.

I don’t know if these these videos are effective. They can be cringe inducing. Halal Hogan and the Magic Backpack are trippy. The insertion of some video lifted from James White is pretty funny.

Possibly the worst line misstep ever made lol! https://youtu.be/hxHrT1moFwc?t=2m22s

? ? ? ???

He's trying to say that swastikas are "easy to identify" but it comes out as "easy to identify with"

JWITTZ IS A CONFIRMED POKENAZI! lol




EDIT: Yes, any superliteral who might be reading, I'm joking...

Watching the Oslamicize Me series led me to David Wood’s conversion story. I found it riveting and totally unexpected from such a tame title. The opposite of clickbait.

10 allegedly true basement-related horror stories

The second collaborator on that video, ShadedMasters, is a pretty good new channel. Here's her reading 5 Glitch in the Matrix stories that I'd not heard before (or at least 4 of them I'd not heard before, the one with the car wreck sounds familiar, but I'm not sure).

Whitest family ever?

No, the whitest family would be the one that I saw once in a toothpaste commercial about 15 years ago, that may or may not have actually existed, and then never again. The toothpaste they're using makes them gradually replace even noun that sounds even remotely like the word "white" with it until it culminates in a "Waltons" style "turning out the lights" exterior shot with them saying "White! White, everybody!"

I can't find a trace of it online and if my sister hadn't seen it at the same time that I did and we hadn't kept joking about it for months afterwards, I would assume that it was nothing but a dream. Was it just pulled because it was... iffy and nobody bothered to upload a copy of it to the internet? That's rare, but it does happen (though in the cases that I can think of like Crybaby Lane or the Rapsittie Street Kids, people were still talking about it online even if they had no footage, and the footage was eventually found, too). Or maybe my Googling is just weak.

The search for your commercial led me to this, which I didn't understand a word of but certainly chuckled at. The search continues...

Great video!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mduJtl8k3dQ

That was just so perfect in lampooning that strain of Orthodoxy (even if it wasn't their intention)... why did the vid maker ruin it with the heavy-handed ending? :'(
