Politically Incorrect Theater – Part 4

2011/11/11

I’m not sure which of the following is the most facepalm-worthy: the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, the captions and editor’s comments mocking the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, or Barry Allen‘s joke about underage marriage/pedophilia.

I don't even know where to begin describing how utterly wrong this is.

This landmark in Silver Age offensiveness has been brought to you by The Flash #180 (June 1968) by Frank Robbins, Ross Andru, and Mike Esposito.

Remember what happened the last time the Joker visited the United Nations as the representative of a Middle Eastern country in the 1980s? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that DC Comics wishes they could forget all about that. I mean, they’d never try getting away with something that offensive again by making him the ambassador of the DC Universe’s Middle Eastern terrorist state of Qurac, right?

Right?

Well, they could just be petty and give him a huge parking ticket.

Oy gevalt.

This even worse example of Islamophobic propaganda has been brought to you by Birds of Prey #16 (April 2000) by Chuck Dixon and Butch Guice.

Remember the time that Wonder Girl almost flew a plane into the World Trade Center? Because I sure do.

It's sad that Donna Troy 's history is so messed up that her being a brainwashed Al-Qaida sleeper agent isn't that hard to believe.

This eerily prophetic scene appeared in The New Teen Titans #20 (May 1986) by Marv Wolfman, Eduardo Barreto, and Romeo Tanghal.

When last we saw the Joker, he’d just made the acquaintance of Ayatollah Khomeini and been offered a cushy position within the Iranian government. Now I wonder what that could that possibly be?

Oh for fuck's sake.

You know, by now, I’m pretty sure that most of you think that we’ve hit rock bottom. And you’d be right. But for some people, hitting rock bottom means exactly one thing: it’s time to start digging.

That depends, actually. Catfish and shark are halal, but eel's kinda iffy.

Today’s Islamophobic propaganda has been brought to you by Batman #428 (Winter 1988) and #429 (January 1989) by Jim Starlin, Jim Aparo, and Mike DeCarlo.
