Dean Obeidallah is a long time friend of Loonwatch and I’ve been awaiting his co-directed movie “The Muslims Are Coming!” enthusiastically. The one point I’d make to Dean and his co-director Negin Farsad, as we’re fond of saying here at Loonwatch, is that the Muslims aren’t coming, they are already “heeere!!”
The coverage of the new movie have been mostly positive, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin for instance wrote a nice write up about the launch of the movie though the comment section is characteristically awash in putrid and semi-coherent hate.
Of course because the movie takes a hard look at the right-wing Islamophobia machine in the USA it has been a target of the usual colorless cast of bigots.
Pamela “the looniest blogger ever” Geller sadly is falling more and more into position as the whiny, old, cranky, fearful lady who feels victimized by the whole world at large:
”… We aren’t even allowed to discuss Islam and the doctrine of jihad in the mainstream media, but “Islamophobia” is a matter for comedy? … So the new cultural jihad is to make it cool and happening and now to make fun of the people who do talk about it at risk of their reputations and livelihoods and personal safety. … The Hollywood hordes who have signed on for this film have no intellectual depth, but fighting against “Islamophobia” is perceived to be politically correct and chi chi, and that’s all they need. … Meanwhile, anti-jihad activists can’t get movies made.”
Clearly, she can’t stand being ridiculed and mocked for her farcical and ludicrous self-appointed title as the “defender of freedom.” Anti-loon Sheila Musaji took Geller to task called Obeidallah and Farsad’s work a real “comedy jihad,” she can’t wait to buy her ticket to the show.
The kooky Rev. Moon owned Washington Times, a conservative rag if there ever was one took umbrage at Fox News being criticized by the comedians,
[T]hey take potshots at key conservatives and Fox News, characterizing those with dissenting views of radical Islam as ignorant.
I guess conservatives got each others back? Never mind that anti-Muslim bigotry is a plank of the channel’s news broadcasting mission, often painting all Muslims as terrorists!
If you live near Chicago, NYC, LA, Boston or New Jersey get your popcorn and reserve your tickets because the Muslims are coming to a theater near you!
