    HaHaHa.
    The HRC and all the leftist do-gooders will be having a fit!

    ISIS hits & memories! This is a short clip from a slickly-produced, 40 minute ISIS propaganda video which shows why the Iraqis are making slow progress in liberating Mosul from the mob that Obama once described as “jay-vee” – remember that? Anything the Yanks & Russkis can produce, with aerial footage of smart bombs & missles hitting their targets, is matched by ISIS suicide drivers, filmed by overhead drones! The full video (not here) includes the usual blood & guts beheading & drowning of prisoners & begs the question – if it was good enough for our media to relentlessly flog the Wikileaks “Collateral Murder” video as “news” a few years ago, why don’t they ever broadcast similar “money shots” from Syria, Libya, Iraq & other current Islamic warzones. I guess it’s only “news” if the Yanks are doing it.

    Imagine the ABC making something like this. Besides the fact that no-one in the comedy unit is actually funny, they’d shit lockers if presented with a piece that mocked the Ro’P and its followers. Even the bolshevik BBC shows them up for the dullard panywaister cowards they are.

    Hahaha! Well done, girls. You’re actually real-life heroines for the shyte I’m sure you’re now copping from the scum-sucking terrorism cheerleaders of the left (most of them wymminses), who infest your industry.

    Too flippant for me. I despise islamic theocracy and given the horrendous happenings around the world I just didn’t find the preview funny. It might appeal and send a message to younger people which I hope it does, but for this old bod much too serious a subject to be treating in a light fashion. We need serious solutions not just have a laugh at the ridiculous decrees in islam.

    We need serious solutions not just have a laugh at the ridiculous decrees in islam.

    And one of those solutions is to laugh at things. Taking things seriously does not exclude also laughing at them.

    Hollywood laughed at the house painter.

  8. Perth Trader

    Bloody funny as hell….I’ve watched it 10 times and laugh my head off . If anyone finds this not funny then its time to ‘pull ya head outta ya ass.’

    Satire is hurtful to the ISIS cause. Stupid young women won’t see any glamour in hunting for an ISIS hero any more. They can see how they’ll become figures of fun. If it stops one star-struck young woman from heading that way then it has done its work, imho.

    Also, it is absolutely hilarious. ISIS don’t like really good satire. It undermines them.

    If the BBC gets a Charlie Hebdo out of it, they may start to get real. I don’t wish it on them, but they should realise they are dealing with lunatic fanatics. So they are for a change being very brave. Good on them.

    Good point, Lizzie.

    Also, it is absolutely hilarious. ISIS don’t like really good satire. It undermines them.

    It has long been my belief that Rowan Atkinson or John Cleese could probably devise the best de -radicalization programme ever.

  12. Cradock's Choice

    This sort of thing is (or can be) game-changing.

    Laughing at them for being primitive barbaric lunatics is lethally dangerous to fanatical causes. humour is deadly to these idiots. That is why they try to ban it.

    During 1939-1945, the single Allied propaganda tool that scared the snot out of the National Socialists was mockery.

    It is impossible to be scary and influential if you are a figure of ridicule.

  13. Baldrick

    The backlash™ has already started.

  14. Shy Ted

    The Real Housewives of ISIS is very funny but it’s been done many times before so not original. What it also is is yet another piece of prime time devoted to all things Islamic. The Islamisation of the West continues apace.

  15. Tom

    From Baldrick’s link:

    The show has been branded ‘morally bankrupt’ for mocking the plight of the women in Syria and adding to the ‘negative stereotype’ of women wearing hijabs.

    The left’s shut-up buttons are getting even more laughable. Why can’t they just say: “We support terrorism because of the evil of the West.”? Oh, that’s right, apart from being humourless totalitarian hypocrites, all leftists are cowards.

  16. nilk

    This never gets old! 😀

  17. Pedro the Ignorant

    I find this clip hilarious.

    Mockery is a powerful weapon (see Bill Leak) and has the added bonus of exploding a multitude of lefty heads.

  18. Leo G

    Also, it is absolutely hilarious. ISIS don’t like really good satire. It undermines them.

    You’ve missed the point.
    The values parodied are not those of real ISIS housewives, but of the twenty-somethings of contemporary secular Western culture. The “them” who are undermined by the production is “us” (yes, I know the pronoun declension is faulty).
    The horror, at we are invited to laugh, is the hypocrisy in our own popular culture.
    The real horror is the culture of the producers at the Bebe, who are quietly laughing at us while we think we are laughing at ISIS.

  19. thefrolickingmole

    The devil hates to be laughed at.

    Why do you think the SJWs are so invested in policing what is funny?
    Can you imagine a series “the new adventures of Trigglypuff” presented with a triggered land whale finding a new cause to be upset by every week only to be pilloried by facts or their own hypocrisy?

    It has long been my belief that Rowan Atkinson or John Cleese could probably devise the best de -radicalization programme ever.

    Mr Bean the suicide bomber?
    John Cleese as an “ask your Imam”?

    Can you imagine the fun you could have with this for instance.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_of_Muhammad
    “Between his two shoulders was the seal of prophethood, and he was the seal of the prophets”
    This “seal of prophethood” (khātam an-nubuwwah خاتم النبوة ) between Muhammad’s shoulders is given a closer description in other texts of the hadith, and it is given a dedicated discussion in Sahih Muslim. It is depicted as a mole on the end of his left shoulder blade, in size compared to a pigeon’s egg or an apple.[6] A passage from Sunan Abu Dawood (32.4071), also collected in the Shama’il, reports how one Qurrah ibn Iyas al-Muzani on the occasion of swearing allegiance to Muhammad put his hand inside his shirt to “feel the seal”.

    Visualize a Julian Clary type simpering as the seal is felt…..

    The jokes just write themselves….

    An interesting take, Leo, but wrong I think. It is the teenage dolly birds of Islam who have been fanasising about ISIS warriors. They have carried over there the essence of Western culture. Some wanted kittens, and they couldn’t do without their iphones. Then in numbers they started to want to come home, as the dream dissolved into reality. This satire shows the silliness of their dream, reflecting back to them the underlying reality of what they received instead. Or would receive if they went. Young Islamic girls with iphones in Britain are very alert to how they are perceived. I suspect this satire will do much to turn them off their fevered purpose.

    I think also that it presents a humanising of the young women. It suggests that these girls are just like others of their age, mad about fashion (frills under those burkas) and very giggly together in a girls-own hierarchy of smarts and shifting minor hatreds. I speak as a past authority on this aspect of girlhood. I was there once myself, within living memory even, minus the burka of course. 🙂

    Recognising this is what girls do is hardly going to pull down Western civilisation.

  21. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    The values

    parodied are not those of real ISIS housewives

    Indeed not. Those are the shrews who run the Women’s Dress Code Police, the fully indoctrinated and crazy ones who have lived in Middle Eastern Islam all their lives (or else really twisted converts), suffering a born-into or psychiatrically acquired Stockholm Syndrome. They are pitiable like the Nazi Female Camp guards are pitiable. Hopeless cases, generally beyond reform, and I don’t say that lightly because I am a softie who believes in redemptions.

    Last para is mine. Sorry, blockquote fail.

    Don’t underrate the young Western beardy-wallys who fantasize about being ISIS warriors.
    Like gender-neutrality, satirical humour doesn’t feature in the fundamental Islamist guidebook. Whether in niqab or dishdasha, young prospective Islamists are not sensitive to this satire, it is really for those who have rejected the fundamentalist muslim lifestyle choice.

  24. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspeeklike

    John Cleese as an “ask your Imam”?

    Snork, snork…

    “Tell me, oh Imam, why do we Muslims believe that a seventh century warlord, probably a psychotic killer and pedophile, is the perfect man, to be emulated in every way?”

    “Tell me, oh Imam, why do we Muslims believe that we can only read the Quran, and recite from the Quran in the original Arabic, a language which none of us can understand, anyway?”

    John Cleese would have a field day..

    If you look at the comments, many muzzies are highly offended by this piece of satire.

    If a group of people were highly offended by satire about nazi’s, one might readily conclude that those people were in fact nazi sympathisers, if not actual nazi’s.

    What might we conclude about the muzzies that were highly offended by this satire of ISIS?

  26. Rabz

    Agree with Leo – I found it quite unfunny and insulting.

    What would be funny is if every one of the loathsome little slags was vapourised by a MOAB.

    Ultimately, it’s all they deserve.
