Apple announces “hijab” emoji. Is an “FGM” emoji next?

Caolan RobertsonArchive

On World Emoji Day, Apple announced a bunch of new emojis, including the most modest of them all – a girl wearing a hijab.

Finally, phone users won’t just be exposed to immoral and naked emoji women!

Apple said in a statement that their new emoji makes it easier for users to express themselves with greater diversity, additional animals and creatures, new smiley faces and more.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so proud to see the tech industry making such great progress. I can’t wait for the FGM emojis!

We need an Ezra Levant emoji to freak out the MSM.

STEPHEN E….Well written and thought invoking post.

Look where the prize fell.though. With Islam and I doubt that we will see many, if any of yours or the other contributors fine suggestions for new era emojis. If I were gay, I would be getting increasingly worried. Clearly Islam is #1 on the pecking order of political correctness and appeasement, and in the subculture of gaydom, gay men are probably at the bottom of the heap. With Islam and Gay like oil and water, I wonder who JT will choose. Of course he will think because he is the be all for every situation and cause that he will be able to solve the muslim-gay conundrum, but he won’t. At some point he will have to choose.

Thanks, Janice. Maybe YouTube has reversed it’s decision already, or maybe they aren’t taking down existing videos, but merely blocking them from posting more. I hope it’s the former and not the latter.

The Clarion Project’s YouTube account has been cancelled. You know?… That website run by tolerant peaceful Muslims, who embrace modernity and peaceful co-existence? Apparently warning people of the dangers of radicalism is far too dangerous for us to handle. Here’s the email I got from them this morning:

“Clarion Project’s YouTube account has been taken down, silencing Clarion Project’s educational work informing the public about the dangers of radicalism. We appeal to YouTube to reverse this decision and empower us to continue our important work. We thank our readers for your continued support and look forward to providing incisive hard-hitting video content as soon as this issue is resolved”

How about a Nun emoji? Or someone wearing a cross? Rabbi emoji? Someone wearing a kappa? Bhudda, where forth are you? Shinto warrior? Inuit emoji? Gansta rapper emoji (with gold chain and gun) emoji? How about a white woman in PJs with blood on her after being shot emoji?

How about a Yazidi emoji, with tied up hands? An ISIS fighter emoji/antifa emoji (just need someone in black with a black mask)? ISIS with a gun emoji? Antifa with a Molotov cocktail emoji?

How about lots of gay and lesbian emojis? How about an emoji with the name zer, zir, zem emojis for the sexually unsure? How about an emoji dedicated to gays tossed off of building in Iran?

How about a Canadian emoji with tape over the mouth? How about a free speech emoji with tape over the mouth? How about a Brit with tape over the mouth? How about a French, Dutch, Swedish, Italian, and German with tape over the mouth? After all, its all about inclusiveness and free speech, isn’t it?

How about an emoji of a murdered Israeli? How about a Sunni “freedom fighter” emoji" Better yet, a Kurdish woman soldier. That will get attention from the Sunni “freedom fighters” of the world.

Will the flag of ISIS now be added to the flag section, too?

How about an emoji for Muslim taxi drivers/über drivers who toss you out because of your political views, that you have a guide dog, you have a bottle of alcohol with you, the woman isn’t dress they way he wants to her be dressed, or because of your religion. So many news reports over so many years…

Don’t forget the Muslim who applies for a job in a liquor store and then complains that he was fired for refusing to handle alcohol bottle, or the Muslim cashier or stock boy who refused to handle packages of pork and complain about discrimination. An emoji should be made for them.

Sigh… Political correctness. This is the beginning of the end of Western society and the rise of the Caliphate. Baby Doc Trudeau must be smiling.

May as well have one with a muzzy humping a sheep. Cover all the bases.

Canadian Mongrel
My thoughts exactly.

Canadian Mongrel, while listening to Caolan’s report, I had the same thoughts you did.

Hey Apple, how about an emojii depicting a person wearing a cross! How about an emojii for Christians fleeing ISIS, or depiction of ISIS slave auction, maybe bacha bazi dancing boy emojii for Afghans with smart phones. How about a bacon wrapped Koran! How about an emojii of a baby with birth defects resulting from consanguineous marriage. Or the emojii of child bride with lecherous old man.
Apple, be brave and depict Mohammad in your emojii selections. Just remember to exponentially increase security for your buildings; your homes and hire body guards for your children.

Canadian Mongrel – all very good suggestions, and I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before they add them to their collection of Islamic brainwashing pics.

Oops, forgot the classic ‘bloody head without a body’ emoji. May allah, the satan, forgive that oversight.

In addition to the FGM emoji, Apple needs to include the ‘acid obliterated face’ emoji and the ‘face before being honour killed’ emoji. Of course there would be the ‘full black wool burka in desert dehydrated face’ emoji, but we would be unable to see the face. Then there is the ‘gay face before being dropped off a tall building’ emoji.

Definitely, Apple needs to add these and many more similar muslim related emojis in order to make muslims believe their evil is welcomed.

Love your dripping sarcasm humor, Caolan!
