Polygamy devalues women, reducing them to the status of commodities, and stands as an affront to their equality with men as human beings. But none of the enlightened Leftists condemning Conan O’Brien for his little joke would dare speak out for the Muslim women who suffer in polygamous arrangements; to do so would be “Islamophobic,” “racist,” and probably “gross.”

This strange stigmatizing of those who speak out against what is manifestly a legitimate human rights issue is testimony to the effectiveness of the global campaign that Islamic supremacist groups have been carrying out for years to deflect attention away from the reality of Islamic jihad, and to clear away obstacles standing in the way of that jihad. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the largest voting bloc at the United Nations, has for years been pressing at the UN for resolutions criminalizing criticism of Islam. It routinely ignores how Islamic jihadists quote the Qur’an and invoke Muhammad to justify violence and terrorism, but cries “Islamophobia” when non-Muslims quote those jihadis quoting the Qur’an and invoking Muhammad.

They want to fool people into thinking that non-Muslim “Islamophobes” are responsible for “linking Islam with terrorism,” when actually the ones doing that linking are the jihadis. The objective is to intimidate non-Muslims into thinking that it is “bigoted” and “hateful” to discuss the Islamic motives and goals of jihadis, much less to resist them — so that those jihadis can do their work unopposed and unimpeded.

In the same way, when Conan O’Brien calls attention, in the most light-hearted and glancing way, to the reality of Muslim polygamy, the attention of the fatuous and self-important Left (but I repeat myself) focuses not on the oppression of women under Islamic law, but on Conan O’Brien as “Islamophobic.” The lesson has been reinforced so relentlessly and repeatedly over so long a period now that neither the OIC nor any other Islamic supremacist entity has to utter a word condemning Conan O’Brien before Twitter lights up with condemnations of him from Leftist non-Muslims. They don’t have to ask their instructions anymore.

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?
