I posted this video, a parody of A Charlie Brown Christmas in which Charlie Brown converts to Islam and becomes a jihadist, here at Jihad Watch on October 29, 2006. It had been posted at YouTube on April 17, 2006. So it is at least five and a half years old, and probably older.
But Gothamist just noticed it, and featured it December 24 in a post entitled “Video: Charlie Brown Converts To Islam In Xenophobic Peanuts Parody.” The title says the video is “xenophobic”; the commenters, inevitably, call it “racist.” So apparently it is both of those things and more to poke fun at jihadists, and to make even the most comically innocuous recognition of the fact, abundantly documented here day in and day out, year in and year out, that some of the people who convert to Islam end up being violent jihadists.
Xenophobic to oppose jihad. We should instead be welcoming of Islamic supremacists who want to kill, convert or subjugate us. To resist them would be racist. That’s the Gothamist’s take. And that of many others as well, of course.
