**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES ****
As we know, many Muslim “wives” and their husbands retain separate and different surnames so that they can game the system–game security databases, game federal investigators, and game various welfare agencies and tax-funded entitlement programs. There is nothing in Islam preventing or requiring a wife from not taking on her husband’s last name . . . nothing, except cheating, deceiving, and ultimately destroying the “infidels.”
But an American wannabe big-time comic-book authoress and Muslima convert wants to turn legitimate security questions and other proper security measures into a victimhood propaganda comic book series. And she’s succeeded, getting DC Comics to make a whole comic book series out of her baseless “Islamophobia” whinings. She’s also succeeded in getting a Wall Street Journal “reporter” with a Muslim-sounding first-name to write a sympathetic, apologist article about it.
I’ve repeatedly written on this site how Marvel and DC–the two major comic book hero publishers–have repeatedly pandered to Muslims of the extremist variety (as if there’s any other kind) in storylines, characters, and even internships at movie studios.
But it keeps getting worse.
At an airport in Amsterdam several years ago, writer G. Willow Wilson ran into a problem on her way back to Denver. Ms. Wilson, a white woman and Muslim convert from New Jersey, was grilled by an official at the gate for the plane and had to defend why she had a different surname from her husband. “The situation was funny to me,” Ms. Willow says, so she decided to write a comic book about the not-so-friendly skies.
In her comic series “Air,” Ms. Wilson follows a flight attendant who gets drawn into a magical world of intrigue after encountering a mysterious secret agent. Ms. Wilson’s previous comic, “Cairo,” was a surrealistic jaunt through her favorite city and part-time home. She fell in love with the Egyptian capital after a trip there during college. “Nothing works, but everything works out,” she says about the city.
As a child, Ms. Wilson was attracted to comics for their conflicts. “X-Men” was a particular favorite. “[Comics] formed my ideas about heroism and they were more at my level than the bigger classic literatures,” she says.
“Air,” published by Vertigo (the adult imprint of DC Comics) and illustrated by M.K. Perker, is part of Ms. Wilson’s attempt to make sense of her life as a Muslim after 9/11. She says that in the wake of the terror attacks, “It was weird and strange to be a white convert.” She soon found that the very things that made her life difficult also provided great raw material for her comics.
Um, being asked why you have a different last name than your husband at an airport isn’t exactly a “difficult life.” Sounds like someone is very spoiled and very militant about every little thing.
Yeah, remember that BS from Muslims on 9/11 and 9/12 about how they want to help us?
Some of us knew this was pure fertilizer the minute it was uttered. Others are still buying the BS by the truckload. And it will be the slow death of us.
**** UPDATE: Here’s a comic-book pane from G. Willow Wilson’s Islamist propaganda comic book published by DC Comics. (I tried to scan it the best I could, but the original is not readable, and a scan is only as good as the original, at best.) It’s not even accurate, since airline officials long ago stopped being required to ask you who packed your bags. But it’s hardly “Islamophobic” to ask someone traveling on a one-way ticket to New York from an international destination, why they are doing so. That’s called being responsible and vigilant. It’s called security. Because, you know, no Islamic terrorist ever bought a one-way ticket to a U.S. destination, right? If that’s “Islamophobic,” we might as well just pack up and convert to Islam right now. But for these self-proclaimed victims, everything is victimhood for Muslims. Everything.
**** UPDATE #2: Looks like G. Willow Wilson is upset that I called her out on her ridiculous Islamic propaganda. But she’s even more upset that her comic book editors “are Jewish, gay or atheist.”
Yeah, time for one of your religion’s ritual “theo-cleansing” jihads on the comic book industry, right Willow?
