CAIR Goes Ballistic Over B.C., Dr. Laura

• Views: 1,211

The Council on American Islamic Relations (leading front group for radical Islam in America, masquerading as a “civil rights” organization) is blowing a gasket (yes, again) over a B.C. cartoon by Johnny Hart: Cartoon Raises a Stink.

Did Johnny Hart — the beloved creator of “B.C.” and one of the most widely read cartoonists on Earth — sneak a vulgar defamation of Islam into the comics pages last week?

The question was raised yesterday by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Washington-based civil rights group, in an e-mail to its membership.

Hart and his syndicate say no — that a simple, straightforward joke is being misconstrued. That may well be true, but the 73-year-old cartoonist’s history of evangelizing his Christian beliefs through his comic cavemen have left many people doubtful.

The cartoon, which appeared Nov. 10 in more than 1,200 newspapers worldwide — including The Washington Post — shows a caveman entering an outhouse at night, and then saying, from inside, “Is it just me, or does it stink in here?”

The first public questioning of this cartoon arose in a washingtonpost.com chat Tuesday, when a reader noted that the cartoon seemed to make no sense, except metaphorically. The reader noted that the cartoon contained six crescent moons — three in the sky, and three on the outhouse door — and wondered if this might have been a veiled slur on the world’s 1 billion practicing Muslims.

The CAIR e-mail mentioned the moons, and also noted that Hart had drawn a prominent sound effect — “SLAM” — between two frames to accompany the closing of the outhouse door. The SLAM was stacked vertically, in the shape of an I, and could be seen to signify “Islam.” The cartoon appeared on the 15th day of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month.

Here’s the dreadfully offensive cartoon.

And CAIR is also freaking out about comments made by Dr. Laura Schlessinger on her radio show: Dr. Laura rebuked for ‘anti-Muslim tirade.’

The comments, on Monday’s program, came in response to a mother who asked whether her 16-year-old daughter should take part in a Catholic high school class’s field trip to a local mosque. The visit was part of a “moral themes” class that aimed to help students learn how “Muslims are treated” in the United States.

Schlessinger, a WND columnist, replied to the mother:

“This is a class on morals. What is the point of going to a mosque? … You’re joking of course. How many Americans have tortured and murdered Muslims. I think you ought to stand up against this class and this teacher. This is despicable. You tell him you are willing to go to the mosque only if it is one that has done its best to rout out terrorists in its midst. Instead of complaining.

“I am horrified that you would let her go. I am so sick and tired of all the Arab-American groups whining and complaining about some kind of treatment. What culture and what religion were all the murderers of 9-11? They murdered us. That’s the culture you want your daughter to learn about?”

This is Frank Zappa saying, Don't do speed. Speed turns you into your parents. -- this used to play OFTEN as a public service announcement(PSA) on radio station WHFS at 102.5 FM in bethesda,MD.USA during the early '70's. it was followed by a nearly inaudible whisper, "...but grass and acid are o.k.", which may have been frank, or one of the mothers.
