Sound Vision: Spreading Islamism to the Youth With Puppets, Hashtags, and Goofy Billboards

muslim-billboardIn August, one Chicago-based, 501(c)3 organization, Sound Vision, trotted out a bizarre idea when they unveiled a billboard in Chicago featuring words written like chalk on a blackboard: “Hey ISIS, you suck!!! From: #ActualMuslims”.

This was part of the group’s overall efforts to target millennials through juvenile phrasing and the use of a Twitter hashtag. The Islamist group specializes in reaching out to young people, both Muslims and nonbelievers alike. It accomplishes this goal through a variety of methods and mediums that target both children and adults.
