We already told you that it appears that the upcoming season of “24″ will be a sop to extremist Muslims, rather than an accurate depiction of the war on terror. Now, there are more hints that this season’s “24″ (beginning in January) will include PC attempts to dissuade us that terrorists are generally Islamic:
This week’s announcement from the show’s producers that gay, transvestite actor Eddie Izzard has been cast as a “villain” is not comforting–especially since we already know that the plot involves terrorism and a mosque (noted in a previous casting announcement). Izzard is a White male. Unless his character is a Muslim (which appears unlikely), we see visions of the political correctness of Season 4.
During that season, Muslim extremists from CAIR and MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council) vociferously whined to FOX and “24″ producers about the plot which showed us Turkish Muslims living in L.A. and plotted to assassinate the Secretary of Defense, blow-up Air Force One with the President Aboard, and murder thousands of Americans through toxic gas releases, chemical weapons, and nuclear materiel.
As a result of their conniptions, the Muslim plot was watered down to include non-Muslim corporate criminals as part of the terror plot, not to mention an absurd, fawning on-air apology to American Muslims by star Kiefer Sutherland.
It appears that “villain” Izzard will be yet another instance in which key terror plot participants include non-Muslims.
