WATCH: Leftists and Muslims have meltdown after BBC airs parody 'Real Housewives of ISIS'

StaffRebel Columnist

The BBC did something no one expected and amusingly mocked the Islamic State and women who travel to Syria in a clip from their show Revolting.

The short video is designed as a fake trailer for a show parodying Real Housewives. There's actually some fun shots thrown at Islamists, feminists, and the religion of Islam itself. It's borderline politically incorrect, which means it's way funnier than anything the CBC has ever done.

However, some on the left don't like this one bit. On Facebook Aftab Bashir wrote, “Let's make satire about British soldiers being killed in Iraq and let's ridicule their widows and children coz its all a bit of a laugh ain't it.”

In a follow up comment, Ebrahim Dar-wa said, “Funny for non Muslims but we don't take this as a joke. Even though ISIS is made up by the West a lot of views are based on religion so this is attacking Islamic values.”

Another user, Hannah Berry wrote, “How about instead of putting in the money to make this you could actually send the money out to help those suffering in places like Allepo.”

More Muslims whined saying “Disgraceful and distasteful. The BBC is normalising Islamophobia through comedy” and “So a show depicting hijab wearing women as terrorists. How do you think this will help the Muslim women living in west suffering daily attacks from ignorant, hateful people? This is really sick.”

While these may seem like minority Muslim opinions, you'd be surprised. A poll released last year found that 23 per cent of British Muslims support the introduction of Sharia law. And that's not all. 39 per cent of Muslims, male and female, say a woman should always obey her husband.

SOUND OFF: Are you surprised to see British Muslims get offended for a comedy mocking ISIS?

In fact, I think we should “burn a Q’uran a day!!”

I agree Thomas. Offend a Muslim today!! And every day!! If they can’t stand our freedom of speech, it’s best we help them get used to it by hitting them hard, several times a day, every day. If they don’t like it, they can move back east and wall themselves off like North Korea.

I really do not care if the Muslims are offended. It seems to me that turn around is fair play.

The Islamists subjugate their women and they hate Christians; Jews; Atheists & Homosexuals. They have no tolerance for the West or our culture and yet they want to live in Canada & the United States; collect our welfare and then turn around and try to kill us.

High time we offend these people. They offend us often enough and you do not see any of them being hauled off to face a human rights commission.

Mockery is reviled by those of shallow convictions … I say mock that hyper sensitive , backward ideology . A supremacist ideology who needs to infest a secular public space with all manner of orthodox & retrograde religious fetishes….

Fuch them and tell them to turn the channel if they don’t like it, we all have to deal with things we don’t like, take Facebook for example, you can’t say a bad thing about Muslims, but by golly they will let you live stream the horrific torture of a handicapped white person by racists, enjoy your Facebook people!

Love it.

LMAO! Ridicule and satire is a timeless tool used against an enemy. Think of Spike Jones and his songs about Hitler during the second world war. This is the 21st century version of those songs. Love it!

That was funny – good for them for mocking those sadistic maniacs of ISIS. Even the reactions to the show were amusing (and a little sad too, given what they said about the decayed state of our societies); for instance, “[This was funny] for non Muslims but we don’t take this as a joke. Even though ISIS is made up by the West a lot of views are based on religion so this is attacking Islamic values.” And of course, since we don’t have freedom of speech, laughing at a religion or “attacking” it – well, to be accurate, laughing at one specific religion – is literally a crime in the UK (and Canada too, effectively, via the ministrations of the ridiculous and horrific HRC).

BBC—-Finally one step forward after 100 backwards.

So it is okay for CBC in Canada to make a parody about White people being wiped off the face of the Earth, but this BBC is out of line? OMG the hypocrisy.

I remember the Ayatollah of Iran once commenting that life is not funny and humour has no place in Islam.
A religion of humourless aholes . Figures
commented 2017-01-04 18:33:46 -0500
We need to see more of this. I hope the muzzies are losing their pea brains over this.
I grew up on Monty Python and Faulty Towers, nice to see some parody in this social justice wanker society!
The down side now is the muzzies in the UK are going to riot over this It empowers the people to laugh at their misfortune for which their government is to blame.
Don’t be surprised if the BBC get bomb threats in the near future.
Keep up the good work, most entertaining.

We need more of this if ever there was an ideology so in need of deep and constant mocking it is islam.

“Next, the US.”

Then Canada, but first we have to euthanize the CBC … and Truedope, and Nutley and Wynnie.

Brexit has brought freedom to the UK in more ways than one.
Next, the US.

Hahaha! Holy crap! That’s getting into Monty Python territory. Way to go :)

Glenn Craig, if a show was produced in Saudi Arabia using the CBC’s “Little Mosque on the Prairie” script, no one would watch it there either…. so the Saudi government and the Wahabi clerics might never find out about it. Have you ever sat through a CBC sitcom? If I were strapped down in a chair and forced to sit through one, within 5 minutes I would be having suicidal thoughts. They’re more painful to watch than The View.
commented 2017-01-04 14:53:49 -0500
It astonishes me that this was written and produced by anyone at the BBC. That is way funnier, and more truthful, than any of the Mohammed cartoons that the BBC themselves had emotional meltdowns over until just a few short months ago. It gives me a momentary glimmer of hope that the underlying feelings of we the poor masses, arguably evidenced by Brexit and Trump as president, may fuel a return to freedom of speech and accountability in journalism in the mainstream media.

But I also have to agree with Keith Barnes and Robert Seagraves below. I think the BBC just painted a big bullseye on themselves.
commented 2017-01-04 14:52:22 -0500
As I have said before, if anyone was to produce a show in Saudi Arabia called Little Church in the Desert…using all the same scripts as CBC’s Little Mosque on the Prairie…and depicting Wahabi Clerics in the same light as the Christian characters….heads would roll…quite literally.

It is good to see that the BBC is regaining some of its past classic comedic glory, when every thing was a target for humour.

I watched an interview with Rowan Atkinson where pointed out that Blackadder would never have been aired by the new BBC. We know that if Monty Python or The Goons tried to start now, they would only be shown the door.

That said, I hope the three women in the sketch that looked East Asian keep safe if they are also muslim. Courageous.

“Among all the other things lacking in, what passes for, the Muslim mind, is a sense of humor.”
All the more reason to give the finger to Islam.
commented 2017-01-04 14:17:22 -0500
The BBC has produced a lot of funny programming over the years and this Video is one of them. Sadly they are controlled by the Marxist Club and Saudi Arabia, they cannot be trusted.

Having said that, I none the less, will not be surprised if the BBC has a Bomb attack aimed at it.

Among all the other things lacking in, what passes for, the Muslim mind, is a sense of humor.

We need much much more of that!
Someone has got to do a Real Housewives of ISIS, version for all Canadian cities. Reality precedes art. Art precedes culture,which precedes politics. Someone has got to see if we can get away with something like this in Canada. I would help crowd fund it. How did the BBC get away with this? The out cry if we did it here would be worth any cost. If the truth is thrown in everyone’s faces on a regular enough basis, more people would start thinking for themselves. Also I would like to see how long it would take for the left to shut it down. All valuable information.

These actresses better enter the witness protection program. They have ways of hunting you down for mocking them. BBC is now on their hit-list too, I am sure.

All true . . . they didn’t have to make anything up . . . lol

Too funny though!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
