It’s badass to wake people up to the evil that you live with everyday but they have no idea exists.
I think the reason why PigMan is so misunderstood is because so few of us have any idea what it’s like to be in Bosch’s shoes, to live every day as an apostate from Islam, marked for death. Existing full-time in that world I can understand why he’d want to imagine someone like PigMan into existence.
Every time a progressive goes off trashing Ayaan Hirsi Ali, comparing her to Lady Al Qaeda, or some blogger unloads his politically correct bigotry on Bosch as a “racist Islamophobe,” I wish I could reach through the screen and shake them awake: “How can you be more outraged by a comic book’s harsh words than the fact that the man who drew it has to live every day of his life looking over his shoulder, worried that some lone-wolf jihadist will do what Islam has commanded needs to be done to all apostates? Real people’s lives are in jeopardy here.“
I wish there really was a PigMan to fight for the ex-Muslims living with a gun under their pillow and the closet-secularist Muslims terrified to leave their oppressive religion once and for all.
