Yesterday, I posted Denis Leary’s hilarious “It’s Jihad, Farley Towne” video, in which Charlie Brown converts to Islam just in time for Christmas and learns what the 72 virgins are all about. I asked how long it would take until HAMAS’ CAIR and other Muslims issued a fatwah against him and started the whining and demands. Well, as I correctly predicted, not long at all.
Denis Leary released a radical Islamist parody of A Charlie Brown Christmas several years ago, but that hasn’t stopped several groups from taking issue with it now. Just days after the comedian reposted a video on his WhoSay site in which Charlie copes with his doubts about Christianity by converting to Islam and building a flawed bomb, several have condemned the video, claiming it encourages an Islamophobic attitude. (The video is from a nearly 7-year-old Comedy Central special.) . . .
Sites like Islamophobia Watch have only recently stumbled upon it: “Just what the world needs,” Islamophobia Watch’s site reads. “A jaw-droppingly Islamophobic video has been posted by Irish-American comedian Denis Leary on WhoSay. Some years ago Leary took a firm stand against Mel Gibson’s antisemitism. But apparently crude anti-Muslim stereotyping is fine with Leary.”
Wow, for once Muslims really care about anti-Semitism. But not really. They’re just upset at Leary for caring about it . . . and telling the truth about them.
The truth hurts, Hubaybi [plural for habibi, which means, “my dear”].
In case you don’t feel like clicking over to yesterday’s post, here’s the video again:
