Oddly enough, no plans have been announced for a show mocking Muhammad. My newest in FrontPage:
Netflix is not satisfied with glorifying pedophilia in cuties, and shows in the third season of the animated Paradise PD an episode that, according to NewsBusters, is not only dedicated to the “attack on gun rights” but also “blasphemous against Christianity” and a video of a contains Jesus wielding weapons who turns into a porno. “Great, Netflix! Nervous! Brave! Cutting edge! Breathtaking and brave! For example, when does your cartoon series show a Muhammad wielding a machete and working with a nine-year-old Aisha? If we had real journalists, they would ask Netflix officials that question, and there is no doubt what the answer would be: Netflix has way too much respect for Muslims and Islam to produce a show like this.
Oh yes, respect. As Bob Dylan’s character Jack Fate puts it in Dylan’s underrated Masked and Anonymous, “I have a lot of respect for a gun.” As everyone knows, the real reason Netflix doesn’t hesitate to make fun of Jesus and Christians but wouldn’t dream of giving Mohammed and Muslims the same treatment because they know Christians won’t kill them for it isn’t Even the crazy “right-wing extremists” we keep hearing about who is supposed to be the greatest terrorist threat we face today. But with Muslims, it’s a different story: if Netflix has ever dared to produce an animated show about Muhammad, it knows that it is entirely within the realm of the possibility of a jihad emerging that will break the minds of Netflix executives from theirs want to separate body. This is how “respect” arises today.
But Netflix didn’t want to show any respect for the Christians in the devilishly obscene episode of Paradise PD called “Trigger Warning”. According to NewsBusters, an enemy of disarmament is offering to take proponents of disarmament on a tour of the National Rifle Association. “The tour includes a gun pit with a dead child buried in it and the corpse of Charlton Heston used as a statue, along with a quote, ‘Get this gun out of my cold, dead hands and win a seat in the Republican Senate. ‘The head of the NRA, Mr. Chip F ** k-Yeah, shows them a video in which Jesus is used as a prop to show how “guns make a better world”. The video is terribly offensive. Jesus comes down from the cross to kill his persecutors with machine guns and then have sex with two women. “
Believe it or not, things will only get worse from then on. But apart from this and a few other articles, no one is going to take a special note. The mainstream media certainly won’t: today’s “journalists” hate Christianity in general as much as they hate Netflix. A particularly spicy comparison, however, comes from France. Shortly after a Muslim beheaded the schoolteacher Samuel Paty on October 16, 2020 for showing a caricature of Muhammad in his class, it emerged that the French police called Paty and interrogated him on allegations of “Islamophobia”. Paty told them, and he was right, that “I have not committed a crime.”
In today’s world, however, he did. It is a massive de facto crime against contemporary sensitivity to violate Islam and violate Sharia blasphemy laws. This is no less true in the USA than in France. When Pamela Geller and I held our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Defense of Freedom of Expression in 2015 and Islamic State jihadists tried to kill us all, Geller was often considered not only by leftists but also by celebrities condemned conservatives (including Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham and Greta van Susteren) for daring to commit what they considered to be an unpaid crime against Muslims. The idea that it is important to defend freedom of expression against violent intimidation and not back up that intimidation by giving in did not impress them at all.
Free speech is the bedrock of any free society, so Netflix is completely free to portray Jesus in naughty and ridiculous ways, and ridicule gun owners as paranoid lunatics. However, the double standard is becoming more and more blatant. If Netflix had operated in France and made fun of Muhammad, the police would have consulted their executives for questioning. If Muhammad had been made fun of in the United States, they might not have had to speak to the police, but they would have been inundated with allegations of “racism” and “Islamophobia”.
What will it all look like in five, ten, or twenty years, when Americans and Westerners in general become more accustomed to the idea that in order to ridicule or even criticize Islam, one has to adhere to the restrictions of Sharia blasphemy the West’s own culture and tradition, which is characterized by “white supremacism” and “hatred”, is fair game. It seems like a recipe for cultural and social devotion.
