"The 99" Are Here To Save The Day

A cartoon about Muslim superheroes is coming to your living room soon.  It's called “The 99” .

An article in The Blaze reports:
Last month, we brought you the story of a Muslim comic book hero who will save the world using his silver wheelchair. That may not have been too controversial. However, the latest attempt to animate Islamic crime-fighters is sparking enough controversy to make up for the former’s relative obscurity.
“Hide your face and grab the kids. Coming soon to a TV in your child’s bedroom is a posse of righteous, Sharia-compliant Muslim superheroes — including one who fights crime hidden head-to-toe by a burqa.” That’s how New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser introduces “The 99,” a new animated show featuring Islamic superheros set to debut in January on The Hub, formerly Discovery Kids.
According to the article, Ms. Peyser thinks the cartoon is a method of indoctrination:
“These Islamic butt-kickers are ready to bring truth, justice and indoctrination to impressionable Western minds,” she says, citing the aforementioned burqa requirement (”hair-hiding head scarves are mandatory for five characters, not including burqa babe Batina the Hidden“) and also the cartoon’s refusal to ever show a man and woman together alone.
As more evidence, Peyser points out the cartoon has met the approval of a “Sharia board — which polices Muslim law — affiliated with an Islamic bank from which the show received financing.” And while she fails to mention the board or the bank, she does quote a Times of London columnist who wrote last year that the show’s mission was “to instill old-fashioned Islamic values in Christian, Jewish and atheist children.”
In August, featured a video of Naif Al-Mutawa, a psychologist, explaining the idea behind his comic:

We see in the video below that President Obama thinks this is a grand idea.

So what do you think?  Will you let your kids watch this new cartoon? 
Do you agree with Ms. Peyser that this is a form of indoctrination? 
Or do you think like President Obama that the “superheroes embody the teachings of the tolerance of Islam”.

There were plenty of comments listed after the article, but I found this one interesting...

  1. On the wider subject of the Islamification of America I commend this American view

  2. banned:
    I just watched both videos (pt. 1 & 2).
    The problem again, as always, is political correctness and refusing to face the truth. I don't know if the guy in the video is 100% correct in "everything" he said, but a lot of it is plausible. And I do believe that the plan for Islam is to take over as much of the world as possible. Just listen to what they can we deny it? Unfortunately, many people do not want to face the truth.
    I also think he has a lot of courage to speak so openly about it.
    Thanks for the video.

  3. If I had kids, this would be banned in my house.

    This indoctrination must stop!

  4. Hi Teresa:
    I think a lot of people are going to steer their kids away from this cartoon.

  5. They're attacking on all fronts now. Between Islam and the progressives, our job is the stay very vigilant.

  6. Odie:
    At least we're talking about it now. Imagine if we were totally oblivious to what was going on.

  7. I've been collecting comics for over 30 years now. I know comics. I know what it takes to have a successful comic.

    This comic will not last past the first issue, once all the heroes blow themselves up to save the day.

  8. Jake:
    You're a riot. But I think you're right...I never thought of that, ha, ha.
