Washington Post, Other Newspapers Won’t Run ‘Opus’ Cartoon Mocking Radical Islam

A popular comic strip that poked fun at the Rev. Jerry Falwell without incident one week ago was deemed too controversial to run over the weekend because this time it took a humorous swipe at Muslim fundamentalists.

The Washington Post and several other newspapers around the country did not run Sunday’s installment of Berkeley Breathed’s “Opus,” in which the spiritual fad-seeking character Lola Granola appears in a headscarf and explains to her boyfriend, Steve, why she wants to become a radical Islamist.

The installment did not appear in the Post’s print version, but it ran on and The same will hold true for the upcoming Sept. 2 strip, which is a continuation of the plotline.

  1. I suppose the point you are attempting to make is that Christians are fair game while Islam is not. I believe you are correct on that point however its a lot more complicated than that.

    I am a democrat so belive me I am familiar with and other left wing news sites. I can tell you for a fact that these news sources absolutely hate christians. They hate the south and all the other red states. When the folks at these liberal sites are accused of being Godless it is the honest truth, they are Godless.

    The cartoon speaks of the radical Islamist. I never read the cartoon so I don’t know why she wanted to become an RI.

    but I would like to make the point that all the news sources in the United States freely blame Islam for everything and call them terrorists. These news sources NEVER tell us why there are so called terrorist attacks or why we were attacked on 9-11.

    Bin laden has written public letters to the American people telling us we were attacked because of our policies toward Israel. Very significantly these news sources NEVER report about Israeli terrorism against Christians, Muslims, Palestinians and everyone else who is not Jewish.

    If you are upset about Opus don’t you think it is stunning that no American media reports THE TRUTH about Israel and our support for ethnic and religous states which go against our Consitution! It would be more in our interest to create an Aryan christian United States than to secure a state for the Jews wouldn’t it? What is the difference between a Jewish state and an Aryan nation?

    You should be angry at all censorship and not single out this opus cartoon.

    The Askanazi Jews who founded Israel do not have the same DNA as the Jews of ancient Israel. The Palestinian people have the same DNA as the jews of ancient Israel. Askanazi Jews originated in Mongolia and they never lived in the holy land.

    Jews have too much control over our government and our media. Saying this either results in accusations of antisemitism or in censorship. the censoring of the opus cartoon is a small small thing in comparison to all the censorship of the truths about Zionism and Jewish influence.

  2. Sooo, it’s OK to publish a cartoon poking fun at a dead white Fundamentalist Christain Preacher but not of an alive dark-skinned Radical Islamist??? Once again the PC Islamofacist win by defalt in this terroristic war agaist “freedom of speech”. Once again the scales of justice have been reforged into shackles of slavery…FYI I espouse neither religiouspsychobabbler.
