Conan and the holy grail. Or should I say the third rail? Doesn't he know that you cannot joke about Islam, sharia, misogyny, gender apartheid, creed apartheid, misogyny or polygamy under the sharia? It's blasphemy. Off with his head. Islamic supremacists and their leftist tools are going after it all right, after he tweeted this innocuous joke about Marvel's new Muslim superheroine:
"She has so many more special powers than her husband’s other wives."
First off, Islam is not a race. Secondly, multiple wives are encouraged in Islam. 70% of American Muslims say polygamy should be legalized in the US, with over 100,000 Muslims engaging in polygamy here in America.
And also worth noting is the fact that Muhammad's favorite wife was six years old when he married her -- this Muslima superhero is 16 -- practically an old lady. He didn't joke about that.
And lastly, where is Marvel's Christian superheroine, Jewish superheroine, Hindu superheroine, et al?
"F***ing gross and racist": Conan O'Brien gets heat for joke about Muslim girl superhero (thanks to Robert Spencer)
It was just a joke, but as the Ayatollah Khomeini said, "There is no humor in Islam." O'Brien tweeted: "She has so many more special powers than her husband’s other wives." This is "racist," as well as "gross" -- but what race is Muslim polygamy again? I keep forgetting.
O'Brien's joke has a factual basis. The Qur'an says: "And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice]." (4:3)
But as O'Brien is discovering now, calling attention to uncomfortable truths about Islam is "racist" and wrong, even if they're undeniably...truths. I am sure that Conan O'Brien will not make this mistake again. After all, he wants to stay on television; bringing uncomfortable aspects of Islam to light is quickest way to be read out of polite and decent society. Just ask Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins, formerly darlings of the Leftist intelligentsia -- until they touched that third rail of American public discourse.
"‘F***in Gross & Racist’: Controversy Brews Over Conan O’Brien’s ‘Muslim Female Superhero’ Joke," by Oliver Darcy for The Blaze, November 9:Editor’s note: Some strong language is used in the tweets embedded in this post.
Late night comedian Conan O’Brien turned to Twitter Friday night to make a joke about the new Muslim superhero unveiled by Marvel — but some fans did not take it well.
“Marvel Comics is introducing a new Muslim Female superhero,” O’Brien tweeted to his over nine-million followers. “She has so many more special powers than her husband’s other wives.”
However, soon after sending the tweet, others hit the comedian back online, with some individuals even branding the joke as racist.
Here are the tweets:
UPDATE: Big Fur Hat here: "Perpetual Victims and Victim’s Advocates Attack Conan O’Brien For Making a Joke About Marvel’s New Muslim Character."
The joke was about as edgy as a bowling ball, but it cut like a scimitar for the usual suspects who are on perpetual high-alert for any comment at all, even if said with with mirth, about Muslims.
Islam is, apparently, a thin-skinned, joyless and deadly serious religion – emphasis on deadly.
