November 22, 2009

Sadly, this is no joke.

    Wow! A burka. Only if the guys would wear them, then racial profiling would be a given. But its better to rely on political correctness and do nothing, like at Fort Hood.

    This is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. Lets downgrade Barbie even more! America do not stand for this! I would not buy one of these nor will I buy any Mattel products from this point forward!

    Coming soon to a Toys R Us near you: Jihadi Ken and his delightfully twisted sister Sharia Kaboom! Celebrate diversity by buying Ken and Sharia’s optional suicide vests, shoe bombs, and box cutters for an additional $6.95. For an additional $69.95 you can buy a model pizzeria so realistic that it will blow your mind (all pizzeria figurines and dolls come with detachable body parts). Sharia Kaboom is also available with optional sand pail and shovel ($3.95) that your child might be able to simulate stoning her for adultery while playing at the beach. It is never too early to impress upon your child proper morality and the consequences that attached to impropriety. As Sharia is not allowed to drive only Jihadi Ken comes with our truck and car bomb options priced at $49.95. For only $195.95 the caring parent can purchase our sexually explicit Sharia Kaboom sans clitoris.

      Cas that was soooo entertaining you should be writing for SNL or Leno, sadly though in that humor is some not so far off truth!

      Cas, that is too funny. I have always believed, with all my heart, that conservatives have the best sense of humor. I laugh all the time at the remarks left by us on these blogs…..but this is the best one in a very long time…..writers for SNL and David Letterman…eat your hearts out!

    Hope that burka has pockets in it so she can carry Khalid’s sh*t around for him.

    To quote Gomer Pyle,”Shame,shame,shame.” What a politically correct joke!

    This Muslim Barbie is part of a special collection to be auctioned off to help “Save the Children”, though there is a very popular Muslim Barbie that’s been around for a few years, it is not made by Mattell.

      Save the Children? What an oxymoron, since Muslim fanatics send children out to die, so that they won’t have to.

      If we want to save the children, we can forcibly reform Islam into the 21st century, by blowing up the Kaaba, Mecca, and Medina.

      Actually, the article is vague, and does not say yea or nay to ‘who’ is producing it. Personally, I dont care who is ‘who’ or for what reason, we dont have to buy it…at least not mandated by congress ….yet.

    It follows then, that the next Barbie will be LEZBIAN BARBIE, followed by Petafile Barbie, goodness graciuos. This PC stuff has gone way to far dammit.

    Everyone has gone mad. All things that are bad, are now good. What a country…Shame on America for falling this far into the sewer.

    What a travesty.

    While promoting perversion, we denegrate morality.

    Speaking of the “Islamization” of the U.S., was anyone aware that the Federal Reserve was sued by the Thomas More Law Center for using U.S. taxpayer money to fund Shariah products?? Richard Thompson,chief counsel and president of the center stated,”this lawsuit not only raises signficant constitutional issues,it alsoshines a light on serious national security issues that own own government has created by direct financial support and ownership of a business that supports anti-American,radical Islamic issues.”
    The entire country is being serious compromised, and spiralling down..
    Rid the country of the three “Ms” Marxists(in government,unversities,etc)illegalMexicans, and radical Muslims. It would be great if attorney Phillip Berg could prevail and oust Maobama and the rest of his Socialist/Maxist cadre of buddies..they could care less what you or I think-they have their own agenda; a One World,Orwellian,UN led government

    How far poor Barbie has fallen in 50 years! Now she is a symbol of oppressed women the world over. I do wonder if she has all her parts and will radical Islam be so incensed by this that they will riot in the streets. If she is at all sexual…just wait. The funny part is that I’m sure money is the motive here, and not just trying to reach a group.

    This would be an easy doll to make. Get a plastic stick and put a cape over it.

    Oh, yes, the aborted baby barbie, the Mao barbie, the Satan barbie and his demons. Is this manufacturer that desperate?

    There is nothing politically correct about being a bum.

    Barbie also needs to carry a suicide bomber kit-complete with real firecrackers. You can light it up and she turns into a human torch.

      Change the doll’s name to Nancy and it’ll fly off the shelves!

    this is grotesque. To promote Islam and Sharia law to little girls should be stopped. Muslim women have no rights not even to their children. Keep this evil ideology out of the U.S.A.

    While I agree the left has gone too far and O has turned out to be just what Foxx news tried to warn America of, an extreme liberal with socialist/fascist leanings you can’t stoop to their back alley ban the news/people who dare disagree with the current power mongers in office today or you become just what you are railing against. As for you Joseph White you are as much a danger to this country as any Jihad terrorist with your death rants. We have no place for you in our civilized society we do away with evil by voting them out not with genocide. I’m shocked they allow you to post that uneducated garbage here, I don’t believe you have a receptive audience in this forum and I for one think you know where your message is welcome and its surely not here.
