Humor is a mirror of humanity never living up to the ideal:
- If the mirror is accurate, it can reveal the good, or expose the bad, of society; However,
- If the mirror is distorted (a fun-house), it could be due to lack of facts, bias, or deception.
Truth – the message – should be delivered in love to persuade and help to strive toward the ideal of humanity.
In the new Roseanne, (“Go Cubs;” 05-08-18), there is a message of tolerance, a la “love thy neighbor,” an implied Muslim family from Yemen, despite the travel ban. The neighbor has a “crazy amount of fertilizer,” observes Roseanne, “That’s how they make bombs. What if this is a sleeper cell full of terrorists ready to blow-up our neighborhood?” Her sister responds by blaming Fox News. Anyway, mystery solved: The neighbor made errors of too many “clicks on the Amazon order button.”
Fast forward: At the grocery store, after the cashier’s verbal abuse of stereotypes, Roseanne defends her neighbor: “You know that saying, See something, say something? Well I saw something, and I’m going to say something, to your manager. You are ignorant. That woman is twice the person you’ll ever be.” Human decency avoids stereotypes and rudeness. What else may we learn?
Many people of faiths – Jew, Christian, Islam, etc. – have never read, or studied, the entire “holy” texts; or researched origins including prophets; or religiously follow doctrines. Ethnicity, family, custom, or government is usually the basis of a religious affiliation. However, a person may prefer to live a secular life, have a family, and be left alone.
Yet many people religiously practice what is preached (Fatwa) or commanded in “holy” texts.
See Something, Say Something
Law enforcement, the “beat cop,” relies on a hunch, reasonable suspicion, and probable cause.
“Terrorists are always neighbors,” sarcastically suggests Jackie, sister of Roseanne. “So all we have to do is arrest everybody.”
In the world of political correctness, is it more likely, or less likely, that you would report “crazy” activity? That “gut feeling” would be labeled “Islamophobic” by liberals, particularly under the Obama administration. You should read See Something, Say Nothing by Philip Haney, a Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.
Would suspicious activity be reported by Roseanne’s neighbor? Ask the Pulse Jihadi’s Widow.
Roseanne likely will never reveal Sharia law
If the implied Muslim neighbor is a recurring character, will Roseanne explore Islam’s core doctrine?
- Convert to Islam;
- Become a second-class citizen, and pay Jizya, a tax; or
Has the above been denied publicly by so-called moderate Muslims? I dare Roseanne to have a guest appearance by a prominent Imam or Islamic scholar to deny the Muslim Brotherhood (HAMAS-CAIR)’s Strategic Memorandum to designate Islam as the official religion and impose Sharia law in the United States. In the MB’s Memorandum:
“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…” [p. 7]
“A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” [p. 18] “This is where the Muslim Brotherhood listed its front groups in the U.S. Note that prominent organizations like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and others are named here,” reports the Clarion Project.
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America.” – CAIR founding chairman Omar Ahmad, quoted in the Muslim Mafia, by P. David Gaubatz [Ch. 17, p. 265; See Ahmad’s denial: fn 1, p. 400].
