City Councilman Names Dog, “Mohammed”; Liberal Official Upset, Seeks Censorship

By Debbie Schlussel

For years, I’ve gotten Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on my life, my parents’ lives, and my Holocaust survivor grandparents’ lives (of Blessed Memory).  (Some of these were even praised by so-called conservative and authentic lunatic Emily Zanotti of the Thomas More Law Center and by bloggers and editors employed and paid by David Horowitz.)  And never once has a single Jewish elected official or unelected, self-appointed community leader spoken out.  Instead, they rush to snorkle the butts of the most extremist of Muslims.  And so it goes with San Juan Capistrano City Councilman Larry Kramer, a Jewish (In Name Only) liberal who is upset that a fellow City Councilman named his dog, “Mohammed” (which is actually hilarious). So, Kramer is wasting valuable time and resources to make it illegal to mention the dog and its new name during City Council meetings. I just love how liberals (especially the ones who claim to be my fellow co-religionists) suddenly forget about the First Amendment and other civil liberties as they race to lick Muslim tuchus.

I and many other Jews and non-Jews have received some of the vilest e-mails, comments, and tweets against our Jewish and Christian faiths.  Never a peep out of the self-righteous Councilman Kramer.  Never a peep out of him when Muslims slaughtered the Fogel Family of Israel on the Jewish Sabbath (including beheading the baby), merely because they are Jews.  But a guy naming his dog Mohammed, that’s something to be outraged by, right?  Back in the day, I’m sure this asshat, Kramer, would have been upset when people named their dogs after Adolf Hitler.  But this is how you demoralize the enemy.  You name things they don’t like (dogs are haram–forbidden–in Islam) after them.  You belittle them.  Sadly, we’ve done the reverse for Muslims–kissing their butts ad infinitum.  And it gets old.


If an elected official names his dog Muhammad, San Juan Capistrano City Councilman Larry Kramer doesn’t want to hear about it during a public meeting.

So he is asking his council colleagues to set some ground rules on decorum.

The move comes after City Councilman Derek Reeve’s recent announcement that he named one of his family’s new basset hounds Muhammad.

Kramer, in a letter to the council, labeled Reeve’s comment “offensive.” (In the Arab world, dogs are traditionally considered unclean.)

It’s unclear whether Reeve, who didn’t return messages seeking comment for this story, intended the pet’s name as an insult. His other basset hound is named America.

Reeve mentioned both dogs’ names Sept. 6, as the council voted to authorize staffers to draw up plans for a dog park in the Northwest Open Space. His remark drew laughter from some in the audience. But others were not amused.

“Words spoken from the dais should be appropriate,” Kramer wrote in his letter, which was included with next Tuesday’s council agenda packet.

Kramer asked the City Council to discuss “appropriate decorum” at its next meeting.

In an article published Wednesday in the Voice of OC, Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, called Reeve’s dog-name announcement “childish.”

Yeah, because we all need to be lectured by a Muslim who said the Jews were behind 9/11, as Al-Marayati did on the radio on 9/11 just after the attacks. Yeah, because we all need to be lectured about dogs by a Muslim whose wife ran a charity that financed Islamic “martyrs” who murdered innocent civilians, as Al-Marayati’s wife did. Yeah, because we all need to be lectured about dog names by a Muslim who openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah and compares Islamic terrorists to America’s founding fathers, as Al-Marayati did.   Yeah, because we all need to be lectured about dogs names by a guy who defended the Hezbollah murder of over 241 U.S. Marines while they slept in the Beirut Barracks.  Given all these details about Salam Marayati which I’ve previously detailed on this site, his column on dog’s names is absolutely hilarious. This is the same al-schmuck who got FOX to force Kiefer Sutherland to read a pro-Muslim disclaimer during a season of the “24.” Look in the mirror, habibi.

Reeve did not return an email request for comment for this story. On his Facebook page, he posted a link to the Voice of OC article with the comment, “Are you kidding me!”

The pet’s full name, according to another Facebook post by Reeve, is Muhammad Winchester Boone.

Fellow councilman Kramer said he “supports” free speech but expects council members to observe common courtesy.

“I was brought up to be respectful to others and to not insult or demean them,” he wrote in his letter. The council, he said, must decide “what action can be taken to ensure the decorum of the City Council.”

Well, I was brought up to believe that no-one, not even Larry Kramer, gets to decide what I have the right to say, even at a City Council meeting. As I’ve noted above, all of us have suffered many indignities and name-calling–and worse, death, rape, and torture threats, as I’ve received from Muslims–and Larry Kramer never cared.

Too busy Forever Buttkissing Islam. Hey, maybe he should joint the FBI.  BTW, here is the update on the story, in which Reeve rightfully calls HAMAS’ CAIR a “terrorist organization” and attacks his fellow councilmen for worrying about his dogs name, and not “anything important.”

I recall Field Marshall Montgomery had dogs named “Hitler” and “Rommel.” (“Play dead, Hitler. Roll over, Rommel.”)

Free Speech INCLUDES the right to offend.

    That’s cruelty to animals.

    It used to be quite common, in the United States, to use the “N” word as a name for a black cat or dog.

    Off Topic, but I wish all the Jews on this website a happy, healthy, kosher New Year. May you all be inscribed for a good and sweet year.

      Guy Gibson of Dam Busters fame had a black Labrador named Nigger.(I use the unexpurgated term as it actually refers to a dog, rather than a person.)

      Quite a lot of mention was made after it was run down and killed.

      Each time I watch the film as they blithely bandy the name around I wonder were these hero’s of the RAF out and out bigots or was their innocence of racism the mark of a simpler time?

      And how about the African countries, Niger and Nigeria? Will they change the names to Peopleofcolour and Peopleofcoloureria?

      OK, long, long ago undoubted racists used these words as terms not quite of endearment but of blind bigotry.

      Surely we’re past all that?

      If a Muslim calls me a kuffar do I call the police? If hundreds are chanting behead the infidels, do I lay awake bathed in sweaty angst?

      Nope. It’s meaningless.

      This hate speech stuff has run it’s term and is now a bludgeon, blunt and in its own way as repressive as the old days of true racism.

What a coincidence. I just named my dog’s bowel movement, “Larry Mohammed Kramer.”

In all seriousness, I do condemn Reeve for calling his dog “Mohammed.” Why would you want to insult the poor dog?

    BRAVO!!!!If I had a dime for every cat, dog or horse, in the U.S. right now, named “Napoleon” or “Caesar,” I could retire. Does Councilman Kramer worry about offending Italians or Frenchmen? How about “Zeus?” When I was in college, I had a friend who named his dog that. Would Kramer worry that that might offend a pagan? I once knew a boxer named “Dixie.” Would Kramer worry about offending Southerners? “Jesus,” of course, would be a very offensive name for a dog, but I don’t think Kramer would stand up in the City Council and object to it. Anyone out there who knows Councilman Kramer, tell him for me that he might as well go out and buy a T-shirt that says “I’m Scared of Arabs.”

The Ku Klux Kair needs to clean up its own damn house. Plus, does anyone remember when the Islamofascists were advocating the murder of a schoolteacher whose class named the teddy bear Muhammad?

Rocky Lore on September 26, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Dynamite article, Debbie. This steady encroachment on our liberties and American way of life by sharia is disgusting and vile.

DS_ROCKS! on September 26, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Where was the outrage during the protests at military funerals? It’s interesting how politicians are only outraged when it is convenient or attracts votes.

jdiz on September 26, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    The only soldiers liberals support are the phony soldiers like Jesse MacBeth.

    Rocky Lore on September 26, 2011 at 7:02 pm

City Councilman Derek Reeve had better watch his back. A while ago in a Muslim African nation a teacher named a doll Muhammad. She was promptly arrested and massively attended riots by the population demanded her execution. Islam in Africa is just like Islam in the US (Muslims in the US don’t really ever kill innocents, do they … ?) so he is in danger.

I_AM_ME on September 26, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    You’re talking about Gillian Gibbons, the teacher in the Sudan.

    Rocky Lore on September 26, 2011 at 7:02 pm

And Jerry Rubin used to bring his pet –“pig” — to demonstrations and protest rallies to show his opinion of the police. Did any liberals protest this?

I have thought that a good product that would take off would be to imprint toilet paper with the Koran. Everyone around the world walks on egg shells to prevent offending these people. I turn on the TV for 15 minutes and I am met with any number of offenses against rednecks, whites, southerners, etc. I don’t seem inclined to go hurt someone.

No wonder California is going broke! Every time I turn around, there’s another story about a California government entity doing something that has absolutely NO public value.

Are there no streets to repair? Are there no delinquent taxes to be collected? Are building codes being enforced? How many cats and dogs were euthanized today at the local animal shelter for want of operating funds?

With all the tsouris going on in the world THIS is where two California City Council members draw a line to have a public argument. All the while, people wonder why California is going broke.

Should I remind you once again that the State of California is going broke?

EPIC story.

That is friggin’ hilarious! Little Mo!

I think it should be the name of choice at pig farms and kennels everywhere.

Worry01 on September 26, 2011 at 7:05 pm

Since when is a dog’s name a government official’s business? F*ck Kramer – he should sit down and shut the hell up! This toadying to Islam is getting out of hand!

NormanF on September 26, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I always liked the name Salahuddin.. such a great historical figure.

yvon on September 26, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Our kitty cat is named “Tovah”. Whenever she watches the Detroit Tigers, they win. It must be a “cat thing”.

There is NO Santa Claus on September 26, 2011 at 10:37 pm

The teacher naming a teddy bear muhommad, wasn’t her. She let her class choose the name, she took the blame and punishment for it.

Muhammad is like a cat litter box, full of sand and shit.

Ender on September 26, 2011 at 10:50 pm

It’s not worth getting whacked by some stupid muslim over naming a dog. I want to ship them all out, reclaim the entire West Bank, and completely neuter Iran. I’d also like to have a few villages in Pakistan and Afghanistan targetted for carpet bombing the next time they pull something, and keep our soldiers out of there. Oh, to be President. I only need sixty million votes. Seriously, forget the dog.

Also let the saudis know, we can control their oil fields with them, or without them.

Think I’ll get a pet pig and name him Allah Ziffel.

That’s animal cruelty! Why name your dog something so reviled. Poor little doggie!

The Muslim prophet Mohammad was an evil child molester (he married an 8 year old little girl) and an evil supporter of slavery.

You know I would never name my dog Muhammad. I have too much respect and love for him to call him this name. He is very loyal, loving and peaceful dog. Rockey died some 4 or five years ago and I still mourn his loss. I will never insult him by such a name.

    Dear Mr. Scharoubim: Read Kipling’s poem, “The Power of the Dog.” It’s beautiful.

    I can imagine naming a Persian cat, an Arabian horse or a saluki “Mohammed;” a Middle Eastern name for a Middle Eastern breed.

    Miranda Rose Smith on September 27, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I have had many threats of death (mainly by beheading), rape, and verbal abuse from Muslims over the years. I’ve also had a good number of “nice” Muslims approach me with their dawah. I am a Christian and they think I will roll over and have my tummy tickled. It’s actually quite entertaining, leading them along, comparing prophets.. however, as soon as you start exposing Islam’s dirty little secrets, they generally become extremely masty.. often THAT is when the threats start.. when you mention “mufa khathat”, the prophet-approved thighing of children.. or taqiyya (allowable lying by Muslims, again, prophet-approved…) they generally get a little defensive.. I rarely hear from them again :^)

Caroline S on September 27, 2011 at 11:23 am

Ms. Caroline, a couple of years ago, when the moronic Jerusalem Post, still published e-mail addresses on its feedback threads, I got the chilling experience of an Arab threatening to kill me for pointing out what savages they are. Yes, he wrote that threat to my e-mail. It was a learning experience for me and I don’t exactly flinch in my support for the Jewish people and Israel. I refused to live my life on this terrorist’s terms. Not every one in this world wishes us well!

NormanF on September 27, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Norman and Caroline, I have a question for the two of you, did any of you hire yourself an attorney to prosecute the low-life scumbags that made a threat to you’re lives? We all know that in this country, if you dare incite any type of violence towards anyone, it is ILLEGAL and you ought to be punish to the fullest extent of the law! The first amendment doesn’t allow you to make any type of threat/plot towards anyones livlihood in this country. Debbie has been the victim of such violent plots upon her life by muslim fascist, and to her own credit, she prosecuted those muslim fascist low-lives in US courts over the years and she won all of those cases, and those muslim savages who made threats to DS’s life are sitting in prison right now as we speak. And you’re right Norman, NOT everybody alive today doesn’t wish everyone well. There are good/great people that wishes folks well, and then there are pure evil-minded and evil-doing people who wishes harm upon everyone!

Sean R. on September 27, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Sean R, good for Debbie! She is a high profile figure like Pam Geller.. another brave soul who lives with Allah/prophet-sanctioned death threats from Muslims.. makes you wonder how many Muslms live with constant death threats from Christians (but I can’t recall where Christians were commanded to inflict terror into the hearts of unbelievers though…). All the threats to me have come from people living outside of the US.. in a number of cases, it was Muslims from Londonistan. They all claim they know where I live of course but refuse to let them intimidate me, and SHOULD one of them try anything around here, “they won’t get far”, to quote local shopkeeper Edward from the UK’s brilliant “League of Gentleman”..

Caroline S on September 28, 2011 at 8:50 am

This’ an insult and a condemn-able blasphemy. The one who has named must feel some shame.
