Pamela Geller’s Ugly Islamophobic Ads Beautified By Muslim Super Hero

These are absolutely lovely.

via. Dead State

Anyone who thought that running Islamophobic ads on buses in San Francisco – a famously liberal city – was going to come without consequence, probably deserves any kind of humiliation they get.

That’s exactly what’s happening with ads disseminated by the U.S. branch of the Freedom Defense Initiative (classified as a hate group in the U.K.), which seeks to compare Muslims with Nazis.

Some quick-thinking person decided to ad a twist to the ads, by defacing their garbage message with pictures of Kamala Khan, Marvel Comic’s first Muslim superhero.

Here are some the of ads that the website Street Cred spotted and posted to their Facebook page:

    Seriously, were you bullied as a child?

    Quran says:

    What comes to you of good is from Allah , but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allah as Witness.[4:79]
    This verse provides an interesting perspective. Homosexuality is something that is an intended act (it doesn’t just happen) and since it is evil, it doesn’t come from God. I wouldn’t just term homosexuality a nature’s mechanism, since it does have a thought process behind it. Although over all, homosexuality does govern who would procreate and who wouldn’t so in the sense, yes, it does set a tone of controlling populations. It is obvious that people who are following God’s laws i.e. being heterosexual and not aborting statistically have better chances of bringing in newer generations. So perhaps it is part of God’s plan (or nature) that the sinners finish off :)

    How would you respond to those who argue that homosexuality is one of nature’s mechanisms of population control (which perhaps it explains why it has become more common over the course of the 20th century, when populations increased massively)?

  • Tanveer ¯_(ã?„)_/¯ Khan

    Humour us, Homedog.

    I then expanded on it by saying “why would a Muslim want to identify with a sin? You don’t have Muslims identifying themselves as adulterous Muslims or alcoholic Muslims, do
    you?”
    Identifying yourself with a sin as if it’s something to be proud of and reaching out for help in trying to stop it are two very different things. Try again.

  • Guess – BDS

    Don’t turn the tables around now, you’re the one who actually advanced the “struggle” context both regarding addiction and sexuality.

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    I wouldn’t agree with you on that. I just feel that we always need to keep our communication channels open and not to get so polarized that we stop listening to each other.

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    Good!

    I am sure if Lot’s people perished in a disaster and the marriage institution mentioned in the Quran is only between and a man and woman, we, Muslims, are smart enough to understand the rest. We don’t need to have things explicitly spelled out to us like for example you need to have done. I am still not taking out an ad.

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    Frankly, I had not read any aHadith until you brought this up here and I did some research. In the Quran, the only thing mentioned is that Lot’s people liked men, made passes at the angels that visited Lot, Lot offered his daughter, God instructed Lot to leave and leave his wife behind – the rest was a natural disaster, Allah’s Azaab, in which the homosexual/would-be-rapists perished. I say good for them. So if you ask me, whether I hid anything, I didn’t. Lot’s nation faced an Azaab. So if the same trend continues, I don’t have to do anything and you face an Azaab if you are doing what Lot’s people were doing. I have not build any institution nor I am taking an ad. You are in God’s hand. More words in this para but the same result. Happy?

    I agree with Just_Stopping_By on this. One of the misperceptions about Islam is that it is inherently intolerant. All this act does is feed into that misperception. And the last photo that says “Free speech isn’t a license to spread hate” is simply incorrect. It actually is. Once you give an inch when it comes to free speech you have given away the very concept of it. Free speech – if it is simply speech and not something else like vandalism or stalking or harassment – is protected no matter what one’s view of its content. The way to handle this is to compete with your own speech. Buy space on busses yourself. To vandalize the billboards of others is to feed into stereotypes as people who cannot handle criticism.

    Guess we can add “Sharia-mandated-scarf” to the Islamophobic vocabulary, courtesy of the Canadian born Tex-ass Ted Cruz

  • Tanveer ¯_(ã?„)_/¯ Khan

    You are extremely depressing at times

  • Tanveer ¯_(ã?„)_/¯ Khan

    Which they shouldn’t have to do. If a Muslim is struggling with addiction or any other sinful habit and reaches out for help from another muslim, they should be getting the help.

    Are you prepared for the end of the world, like retire to the mountain-top, grow some crops, buy some handguns, etc?

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    We don’t recognize Israel and if someone does, the clergy would be horrified. But I think in order to tame a bully, maybe start communicating with them and not the KSA type (with under the table overtures between the kingdom and Israel) but open public ones. Israel shouldn’t haven been created but now it’s there. Plus, it would be good to break the RAW-Mossad thing. Would throw India off its course. But then Israel needs to behave too, no more settlements pre-1967 borders and all. Too many unethical malicious nutters in there so wonder if that works.

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    Homosexuality is a big sin in Islam and against the natural biological order that would guarantee that the human race continues existing. It’s the depth (or should I say height?) of moral depravity but I don’t plan to take a Metro ad about it.

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    Even if there are no religious texts, there will be always be something written negatively about someone else and Freedom of Speech in principle (which doesn’t usually happen in this country except against certain groups) would let you do that. So Pammy can continue publishing Atlas Shrugs which no one here has objected to. And we are free to have Qurans and whatever religious texts we need to. And public libraries can carry books about Hitlers biography and Holocaust denial which doesn’t happen. But as I said before, putting harassing ads in public is different. It is subject to public order laws such as harrassment or incitement and I do hope Muslim groups start using those laws to legally remove Pammo the Whammo’s ads. Until then, spray painting them with something peaceful is a good initiative.

    My view will not be allowed here on this topic, Suffice is to say that, the progressives will delete the Quran as well. Just a matter of time. (We are not here to make you feel comfortable)

  • Jekyll

    Dayum right the chicks are real…

  • Jekyll

    Is not one of the rules of being a Pakistani citizen that you do not recognize the State of Israel ? Either way I too am radical is stating that it would have been better if the Israel and Pakistan were not on the map (one can make copious amount of comparisons between Israel and Pakistan).
    The BDS is a sideshow, a giant distraction. Israel the next world superpower. A few boycotts will matter none.

  • Jekyll

    There never will be a Palestine.

  • Tanveer ¯_(ã?„)_/¯ Khan

    Why would you have gay muslims revealing their sexuality? Homosexuality is a sin in Islam, why would a Muslim want to identify with a sin? You don’t have Muslims identifying themselves as adulterous Muslims or alcoholic Muslims, do you?

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    Summary please of those pages?

  • http://Aayjay.wordpress.com/ No_Terrorist

    My views regarding Israel are really radical. As a Pakistani, I think we should recognize Israel as a state and establish diplomatic relations with them. If I have not shocked you enough already, I could explain my multi-fold reasons. :)
