HILARIOUS: “Reno 911″‘s Raineesha X Comes to Real Life in Muslim Chick’s Lawsuit

By Debbie Schlussel

Avid fans of “Reno 911!” may remember the 2004 “Raineesha X” episode when Deputy Raineesha Williams (Niecy Nash)  insists on wearing a hijab (the Muslim female headscarf also sometimes referred to as a burqa, as it was in that episode).


Uh-Oh!: Reno 911!’s Raineesha X (Niecy Nash) Comes to Real Life

Well, now we have the real life Raineesha X in Atlanta Police Department civilian guard Helen Lane.

First a refresher on Raineesha X, via some dialogue:

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Why are you wearing that thing on your head?
Deputy Raineesha Williams: This thing on my head is called a “Burka” and I am exercising my religious freedom, all right? I stand before you Raineesha X, all praise is due to Allah!
Deputy Travis Junior: [dives to the floor in fear]
Lieutenant Jim Dangle: It’s from the Homeland-Security training.
Deputy Travis Junior: I’m sorry, I thought she was gonna …
Lieutenant Jim Dangle: No, no, good instinct.
Deputy James Garcia: She don’t have a bomb.
Lieutenant Jim Dangle: No, no, she didn’t have a
[clicks tongue and pantomimes pressing detonator with thumb]

And now for the Helen Lane story:

A Muslim woman is claiming in a federal lawsuit that she was dismissed from the Atlanta Police Department’s civilian honor guard because she refused to remove her traditional head scarf.

Helen Lane alleges that the head of the voluntary guard laughed at her when she told him she would wear her hijab at a September 2006 funeral. She said she felt “humiliated, hurt and was traumatized” by the laughter.

Lane, who is seeking $240,000 in damage, said she told by another Atlanta official that “the hijab was like a swastika.” The city has denied the allegations and the honor guard has since been disbanded

Whatta wimp-ette. PUH-LEEZE, she’s so sensitive that a guard laughing at her is now worth $240,000?! No wonder they disbanded this stupid civilian honor guard.  Apparently, there wasn’t any honor (or much else) in it.

And while I doubt anyone had the guts to tell her “the hijab was like a swastika,” it in fact is. Actually, far worse.

Shows like “Reno 911” have to stop joking about these hilarious, ridiculous things because, apparently, some people don’t realize it’s a joke, and seek to emulate them in real life.  People like Helen “Raineesha X” Lane.

Who knew TV comedy would unfortunately result in self-fulfilling prophecy.

Why is a hijab like a Swastika? Because it signifies that she is a Muslim woman practicing her religion? Do you honestly equate a hijab to a terrorist because the people who perpetrate crimes are also Muslim?

Well, remind me to lock the doors on my house the next time I see a yarmulke, because they might be Israelis who are going to blockade me in my house and not let me go grocery shopping because of the memories of the Gaza Strip. Does that make any sense at all?

When I read this kind of nonsense, I’m forced to view the other perspective… What if someone laughed at a Jewish girl for wanting to wear a tichel to a funeral? Would you feel upset if someone said it was like a Swastika?

Should we deny Christian women the right to wear a veil or headscarf if they so choose, then mock them for their upset?

They’re just questions. Don’t be afraid to answer them. Just make sure that the answers aren’t explained by hypocrisy.

    “They’re just questions. Don’t be afraid to answer them. Just make sure that the answers aren’t explained by hypocrisy.”

    You would be a good judge of hypocrisy my friend.

Ghost, I think what Debs mean is in her own homeland she is forced to wear her Burke otherwise she could face extreme punishment including death for disrespecting her religion. This self-same religion who teaches its people from a very early age to hate America, and cause death and destruction to our way of life as did the Germans Lo those many years ago in Europe. Death for the sake of Islam isn’t much different as death for the sake of the fatherland.

Well, one reason could be that the hijab and the swastika are both symbols of philosophies based on supremacy of the believers and a call for genocide of Jews and Christians. Or maybe it is based on the buddy-buddy relationship of the Nazis and the TransJordanians, whether it was Hitler himself and the mufti, or present-day praise of Hitler by the modern TransJordanians.

    Thanks Martin for responding.

Gee, getting $240k for being laughed at…
I guess Kool-aid better look out, they didn’t make me their friend when they released a new flavor of kool-aid (freckle faced strawberry). Of course this had NOTHING to do with my hair color and complexion at that time in my life. Being part of the smallest minority in the world (not able to tan and having red hair), just get over yourself…..Helen…..

Can you sue yourself and claim a loss on your taxes when you lose?

The Terrorist's Advocate on December 30, 2009 at 6:14 pm

To top it off, they punish the innocent.

Rather than deal with the issue, they disband the Honor Guard.

I’ll bet Atlanta is run by the dem/lib/progs. These types are really good at closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out.

Where do people get the notion that getting their feelings hurt (vs. libel and so called “hate speach”)is a crime?

I don’t like using this anti-Semite’s cartoons, but when he isn’t inciting against Jews he’s does produce some otherwise insightful material.

Isn’t it interesting that when the ACLU and the NAACP were ripping, burning, and cursing the state flag of Georgia that had the Confederate ensign emblazoned on its fabric, they too compared it to a swastika? They absolutely want the past forgotten and teach a more socially acceptable history of America. That is what I love about the Tenakh: even the wicked things the patriarchs did was recorded. Lets not forget that Atlanta is home to one of the busiest airports in the world and also home of Delta Airlines. People in Atlanta were especially hard-hit when the Muslims ran those planes into those buildings on 911. Can’t say I really blame them for getting a little upset that an honor guard had absolutely no honor…

Perhaps you’ve seen “Little Mosque on the Prairie” a TV ‘sitcom’ by Canadian taxpayer funded state television CBC. It has reportedly no Muslim actors, 1 Christian Priest (the trouble maker) and a Muslim person on staff as an advisor less they risk offending anyone (aka Muslis).
Little Mosque Is Back For A fourth Season!
The popular and now more established CBC hit looks into the lives of the beloved characters of the small-town Muslim community in Mercy. The show will maintain its episodic feel, but will also introduce on-going multiple-episode story arcs.

Little Mosque as a Brand is…
Modern take on Traditional

I won’t speak to the similarities between a hijab and swastika but the difference between them, obviously, is that you wear one on your head and the other on your arm.

I’m real sorry that the Muslim woman feels bad. She probably hasn’t felt that bad since her cliterectomy.

What are her damages? It was a volunteer organization.

I bet Daniel Pearl would be up for a good laughing at about now.

The only time you have to worry about being blockaded by Israelis is at the mall when they try and sell you Dead Sea Salt cosmetics.

Maybe you should do an experiment and try to pass yourself off as a flaming homosexual in Minneapolis or Detroit. Tell us how that goes.

This veil crap is mostly arrogance veiled in supposed religious duty.( pun intended ) They claim it is required by Allah yet many Muslim women the world over do not wear it and are not required to wear it.

Yes I remember that episode. Hillarious. Howvever this real life version is pathetic.
