Late-night comic Conan O’Brien tweeted Friday night: “Marvel Comics is introducing a new Muslim Female superhero. She has so many more special powers than her husband’s other wives.” The predictable self-righteous firestorm ensued.

O’Brien was referring to “Kamala Khan,” Marvel Comics’ new Muslim superhero, unveiled with great fanfare last week. They are only introducing this Muslim superhero because of the hugely successful post-9/11 campaign by Islamic supremacists and their Leftist allies to portray Muslims as victims of “Islamophobia” and “hatred” — when actually the incidence of attacks on innocent Muslims is very low (not that a single one is acceptable or justified), and the entire “Islamophobia” campaign is an attempt to intimidate people into thinking that there is something wrong with fighting against jihad terror and Islamic supremacism.

Will Kamala Khan fight against jihadis? Will Marvel be introducing a counter-jihad superhero? I expect that the answer is no on both counts.

In any case, O’Brien’s tweet was just a silly quip, but as the Ayatollah Khomeini said, “There is no humor in Islam.” One of those who were offended wrote: “I didn’t know that @ConanOBrien had Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller writing for him now. Interesting.” A legion of Leftists descended upon O’Brien’s Twitter feed, accusing him of being a “f***ing racist scumbag” and “Islamophobic,” and his joke of being “kinda tasteless,” “really ignorant and terrible,” “in very poor taste,” and “f***ing gross and racist.”

“Racist”? What race is Muslim polygamy again? I keep forgetting. O’Brien’s joke has a factual basis. The Qur’an says: “And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].” (4:3)

But as O’Brien is discovering now, calling attention to uncomfortable truths about Islam is “racist” and wrong, even if they’re undeniably…truths. I am sure that Conan O’Brien will not make this mistake again: almost immediately after people began criticizing him for it, he took the offending tweet down. After all, he wants to stay on television; bringing uncomfortable aspects of Islam to light is the quickest way to be read out of polite and decent society. Just ask Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins, formerly darlings of the Leftist intelligentsia — until they touched that third rail of American public discourse and dared to criticize the violence and brutality that Islamic jihadists commit and justify by reference to Islamic texts and teachings.

It is difficult to comprehend how a Muslim female would ever be allowed to be a superhero. In Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive a car so how would she arrive on scene to prevent a crime. In some nations Muslim females are not allowed to attend school, therefore our superhero would not be able to read or write. Muslim females are seldom allowed on the street unattended nor permitted to speak to any male not a blood relative. How would she yell “stop thief” on her own?

All of these things are glossed over in this comic book that pretends Muslim is simply another word for American. She will do all the things an American super-heroine would do while liberal-land looks on to applaud about how truthful and enlightened they are. Conan’s crime is that he told the truth, a truth that must not be spoken, nor ever contemplated.

Some things are hard to look at. The terrible, grueling oppression of women by the Muslim world is one of those things. It would’ve been heroic for this comic to tell the truth about those conditions and how one brave woman fought against the system. Instead, they will close their eyes to real heroism in order to retreat back into a liberal fantasyland consisting of make-believe heroes and make-believe villains. Real evil is not like a comic book, and real victims seldom escape from their chains to turn the tables on their attackers. Real heroism is a terrible and grueling task that grinds you to the nub as you endure oppressive rejection at the hands of the ruling elite. Liberals so often join with the oppressors to criticize this kind of heroism as hate speech.

For them, “Everybody with multiple wives was doing ever so well until that stinking hero showed up to start making trouble. So now let’s all gather together, close our eyes, hold hands, and sing kum-bah-yah while waiting for the world to become a better place.”

All muslims may not be terrorists, but they are all instructed to support the struggle for the whole world to be under islam. So even though a muslim you meet may not be a terrorist (i.e. foot soldier), they are most likely part of the "folks back home" buying bonds and such for the war effort.

The same leftists who consider Islam a race don't consider Christianity a race even though there are hundreds of millions of Christians who are not white. Leftists are totally brain-dead when it comes to Islam. And if Islam had its way, Leftists would be more than just "brain" dead.

"calling attention to uncomfortable truths about Islam is “racist” and wrong, even if they’re undeniably…truths."

That's been so of blacks for at least 45 years and is rapidly becoming the case with illegal latino immigrants. Look at the number of permutations their approved group names have gone thru. All but the current ones have been deemed insulting and the current ones will be so deemed within the next 15 years as well.

My guess is that the term islamophobia will probably go away after Iran attempts to launch a nuke on Israel and all Hell breaks out in the Middle East driving the price of gasoline immediately to $10 per gallon. They are NOT our friends and prove it every day:

from the Koran, doesn't seem like they are that civilized
.Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Qur'an (3:54) - “And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers

Quran 4:74
"Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."

“The killing evokes this passage in the Quran: ‘When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!” – Quran 8:12.”

Qur'an:8:39 "Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah."

Qur'an:8:39 "So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)."

Quran 47:4 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. 

Sura 8:13 When thy Lord revealed to the angels, saying, 'I am with you; so make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Smite them above their necks, and smite off all finger-

Political correctness, enabling the terror-stricken to pretend that they are actually conscience-stricken.

Mohammed was a white man - he is a dead white male. Its not racist to oppose his wishes. It is a civilised thing to do. Those who promote him and his wishes want to turn Earth into Hell. Polygamy means no woman can trust another woman. They are all rivals for the affection of men. That is "Divide and Rule". Islam means that every male can be part of a sexploitaion system as soon as he reaches puberty and can either work for a living or loot for a living.

Oh, I don't know. Likely as not they will gang up on the poor husband.

The difference here is this:

O'Brien knows he can insult Christians with impunity, because we'll simply smile and pray for him.

O'Brien now knows he'd better not insult Jihadists, because they'll cut off his f***ing head.

I think maybe you are overdoing it. Each country is different. Saudi Arabia is very extreme.

I believe most Muslim countries educate girls; you can correct me if you like.

And, sorry, I see nothing wrong with having more than one wife; my ancestors Abraham and Jacob did (although marrying two sisters was later prohibited), as did the righteous Elkanah, father of the prophet Samuel. It becomes a problem in a polygamous society (as much as Islam is), and it isn't only the women who suffer - what do the extra men do? Sometimes they blow themselves up.

In case I wasn't clear, I was saying that there is a difference between a society where multiple wives are permitted, and one where it is the norm. The former is pretty harmless (not that I want to change the rules in the US), the latter causes problems.

Islam has nothing to do with this, a narrative of a demographically attractive female told in edgy graphic novel style. Millennials looking at their reflection in a sympathetic mirror. That's all this is.........

Those Mormon offshoots that still practice polygamy- I'm sure liberals would jump to their defense too, right?
