The only thing stranger than an American network introducing a children's show about Muslim superheros who "embody the attributes of Allah," would be if that program was enthusiastically endorsed by...you guessed it!...Barack Hussein Obama.
"The 99," which will be shown on the cable network "The Hub" (formerly "Discovery Kids") features 99 Muslim superheros, each one of whom represents a single attribute of Allah. Among the heros is a "Hulk" knockoff named Jabbar, a super-fast character named Mumita, and a heroine who wears a head-to-toe black burqa and is known appropriately as "Batina the Hidden," whose power is presumably to scare bank tellers and make people in airports suddenly decide to give up their travel plans.
In a meeting with Arab entrepreneurs, Barack Hussein Obama (who, like other superheros, guards his true secret identity) praised the comic series which inspired the show, saying the "superheroes embody the teachings of the tolerance of Islam."
Frankly, we're not sure why you need a guy who looks like The Hulk to teach tolerance; it sounds a lot more like intimidation. But if the "education" president says this is good for our kids, then it must be good for our kids...and we think they should watch!
As long as the boys (Allah be praised!) watch in one room...and the dreadful little girls watch in another.
