In an astonishing case of “Do what I say, not what I do,” a radical attorney and board member of CAIR recently took to the airwaves to make quite a claim against bugs bunny.
Lamis Deek: “People interested in attacking the Arab and Muslim communities, and the people who sympathize with the Arabs… I am not talking only about the U.S., but elsewhere as well. They got an opportunity for coordination. I’m talking about the corporations involved in national security and wars, along with Zionist and Israeli institutions, and people who generally believe… I’m talking about Zionist Christians, who believe in the annihilation and demonization of the Muslims. I also mean the racists in general, who are still afraid of what happened in 9/11.
“So all these things – the industry, along with the Zionists and your run-of-the-mill racists who don’t know any better, and who get their information only from the media and the press… I’m not talking only about the news, but also about the cartoons on which we were raised, even before 9/11.
“In Bugs Bunny, which we used to watch, they would sometimes bring a character pretending to be an Arab Muslim Sultan. He has a potbelly, and he spends most of his time sitting around and eating, indulging in women day and night, and killing people.
“This is the general notion, but the use they make of it has become more targeted. The film we just watched… The Department of Defense finances such films in order to increase suspicion towards our community in America and abroad.”
You can see the full video interview here. Apparently Lamis Deek doesn’t watch TV programs produced in the Muslim realms of the middle east. If she did, she would know full well she has it completely backwards.
Those pesky facts often do get in the way of radical spin.
