Talk Show Says No Go
Local radio personality Lucy Ann Lance conducts a daily talk show on AM-WLBY 1290. First starting as a weekly show in 2009, she says “We’ve developed a platform that will focus on our community, its people and the local business economy.” Recent shows have highlighted the upcoming mayoral race, running events such as last fall’s Turkey Trot, and local entrepreneurs. She also says “We intend to offer a local media outlet that keeps the emphasis on the Ann Arbor area and gives everyone who cares about this area a chance to speak out and debate the issues. Our community deserves that.”
Well, one issue that was offered to Lucy and Producer Alice Shea, was to discuss a local, 10-year-old peaceful vigil at Beth Israel Congregation. This offer went unanswered for over three weeks before Ms. Shea contacted this writer to see if Lucy had replied. When told no, she apparently then approached Lucy and wrote back within the hour,
Lucy Ann would like me to let you know that at this time we are going to decline. However, we will keep in touch should anything newsworthy come up regarding your efforts.
We really appreciate you keeping us in mind!
Alice (Uh-lee-see) Shea
Producer, The Lucy Ann Lance Show
Well, that should keep our pesky vigils off the airwaves for a while, but her demurral calls her own mission into question. Former Vigiler A used to tell us that the only media we control is that on the streets, with our signs. How true!
Few Comments on our Holocaust protest
Last week we reported that JWPF staged a protest at the Holocaust Memorial Center in nearby Farmington Hills. We received a few compliments and more than one caution to leave this topic alone. “Focus on Palestine” we were told. Also, “Personally I wouldn’t drag revisionism into an action against Zionism. It just gives them a club to use against us.”
As much as we appreciate unsolicited free advice (UFA), we fail to understand the resistance to exposing the connection between Jewish Power, the Holocaust, Israel, and how it protects the state (and Jews) from criticism. Readers are referred to Paul Eisen’s Holocaust Wars for a much-needed understanding of why this issue remains pertinent and open. And we are once again reminded of the words of former Israeli MP Shulamit Aloni, when questioned about how critics of Israel are often labeled anti-Semites:
“Well, it’s a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel, then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country people are criticizing Israel, then they are anti-Semitic…And the organization is strong and has a lot of money and the ties between Israel and the American Jewish establishment are very strong and they are strong in this country…It is very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli government as anti-Semitic and to bring up the Holocaust and the suffering of the Jewish people and that ‘justifies’ everything we do to the Palestinians….”
JWPF is not falling for Jewish tricks anymore …
