Right-wing bloggers decry Nightrunner, DC’s Muslim ‘Batman of Paris’

Nightrunner, from Batman Annual #28 (art by Trevor McCarthy)

A conservative blogger who earlier sounded the alarm about the perceived attack on the tea party movement in Captain America and warned of the “anti-American nihilism” of Watchmen has now turned his attention to Bruce Wayne’s recruitment of a Muslim to be the Batman of Paris.

But Nightrunner, the parkour-trained crimefighter introduced in this month’s Detective Comics Annual #12, isn’t just any Muslim — he’s a 22-year-old Algerian Muslim living in Clichy-sous-Bois, the poor commune east of Paris best known outside of France as the epicenter of the 2005 riots. And that doesn’t sit well with Warner Todd Huston.

“You see, DC Comics has decided that the ‘French savior,’ the French Batman is to be a Muslim immigrant,” Huston writes on his Publis’ Forum. “The character’s name is Bilal Asselah and he is an Algerian Sunni Muslim and an immigrant that is physically fit and adept at gymnastic sport Parkour. Apparently Batman couldn’t find any actual Frenchman to be the ‘French savior’.” What constitutes an “actual Frenchman” isn’t entirely clear, but presumably the writer is referring to one of the “Frenchmen of European stock” he mentions later.

Huston takes aim at David Hine’s story, which centers on a series of political assassinations that lead to riots by communist union members and neo-Nazis, describing it as “PCism at its worst”: “The whole situation is a misreading of what ails France. The truth is, neither communist Union members nor ‘Neo-Nazi’ Parties are causing riots in France. Muslims are. Yet DC Comics is absurdly making a Muslim immigrant the ‘French savior’?” He accuses the publisher of badly downplaying in Nightrunner’s origin “the seriousness of the actual racial tension in France” and oversimplifying the problems “as mere racism as if that is all there is to it ignoring the fact that Islam is the single most important factor in the strife.”

From Nightrunner's origin

He isn’t alone in his criticism; he’s merely picking up the baton passed by far-right commentators like Avi Green who, writing last week at The Astute Bloggers — a site dedicated to “exposing leftist propaganda,” “highlighting under-reported news” and “promoting universal human rights” — said, “How about that, Bruce Wayne goes to France where he hires not a genuine French boy or girl with a real sense of justice, but rather, an ‘oppressed’ minority who adheres to the Religion of Peace. And this is a guy whose very parents were murdered at the hands of a common street thug!”

So while Huston isn’t the only defender of the, I don’t know, wounded honor of “actual Frenchmen” in this manufactured controversy, he may be among the most widely distributed. Commentary from his Publis’ Forum regularly appears at other conservative outlets, such as Andrew Breitbart’s network of websites and Canada Free Press. His Feb. 8 column about Captain America #602 was followed by FoxNews.com’s article about the comic’s “tea party jab” which, in turn, triggered more widespread coverage.

Huston characterizes DC’s decision to make “a Muslim in France a hero when French Muslims are at the center of some of the worst violence in the country’s recent memory” as “PCism run amuck.” It’s apparently part of the “PCing of the American comic book industry” that includes the Captain America-tea party incident, the introduction of gay character Kevin Keller in the pages of Veronica, and … Larfleeze? That’s right, Agent Orange.

Andrew Belonsky at Death and Taxes, who was among the first to pick up on the reaction to Nightrunner, views it in light of the recent calls for a boycott of Marvel’s Thor movie because black actor Idris Elba was cast as the Norse god Heimdall:

The Nightrunner controversy differs a bit from the Thor scandal seen earlier this week. In the Thor scenario, the Council [of Conservative Citizens] wasn’t saying black people can’t be heroes, period. They simply don’t want to see Idris Elba in a specific role.

“It’s not enough that Marvel attacks conservatives values, now mythological Gods must be re-invented with black skin,” they said. “It seems that Marvel Studios believes that white people should have nothing that is unique to themselves.”

It’s a discriminatory, myopic view, yes, but not nearly as narrow as the one The Astute Bloggers trumpet. Green and his colleagues assume Muslims can’t be heroic because they’re inherently villainous and out to spread “Islamic supremacism.”

Nightrunner’s introduction continues in Batman Annual #28, in stores this week.

As a MUSLIM, I agree with the right wing maniacs here, but not out of bigotry or French universal humanism, but because Bruce Wayne is recklessly devaluing his brand by franchising outside of Gotham. He really should be kicked off the board of Wayne Enterprises for this liability nightmare.

It should be added, however, that David Hine is a comic-book genius. I am sad that Grant Morrison’s deteriorating story-telling instincts have dragged him into this mess.

I thought this was mentioned a few weeks ago.

But the concept of Nightrunner is a bit cliched and dumb, did David Hine just watch B-13 and go “yeah, that’s the ticket!”

Well, his costume is cool. But seriously? Before people have a go about the “racists” here, let’s think about how the Americans would feel if the New Captain America, was actually an Afghan?
There are is an ACTUAL “french batman” in the form of the Musketeer, as seen in Morrison’s Batman Black Glove tpb/hc. Or a new character who is actually french(hey, could even still be a muslim) could have been created.
I am also against whatever his name is playing an Asgardian, not because i’m against black people, but because the character is white! The only way it could work for me, is as if it was done like the modern Thor comics, in which Thor awakens the souls of the Asgardians in others, such like the female Loki.

Actually the costume isn’t that bad. BRUCE WAYNE should wear it next time he’s in France.

Holy crap, “parkour-trained crimefighter”? Now I really want to pick this up! Thanks for pitching a fuss, haters – I wouldn’t have heard of this otherwise!

That is one sweet cover. If you didn’t put the name of the artist there, I would have thought it was a J.H. Williams drawing.

I also have a hard time buying Idris Elba playing Heimdall, because if there’s a pantheon of gods that wouldn’t have a black guy in it, it would be the Nordic one. It’s not “discriminatory or myopic” to think that, just nerd nit-picking. But I don’t really have a problem with it, I just hope it’s a good movie.

I don’t really have a problem with it either way, but according to this:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ea/World_Muslim_Population_Pew_Forum.png
there’s anywhere between a 1-in-20 chance to a 1-in-4 chance that Batman would pick a Muslim anyways. Not the best odds, but certainly not out of the realm of reason.

I am not reading it, but isn’t the entire “Batman Incorporated” story Leftist?

Batman is promoting globalism via choosing different Batmen all over the word.

So now Bruce is a Socialist.

wiki:

“commanding a global team of heroes”

“use the symbolic power Batman has on a global scale”

“Well, his costume is cool. But seriously? Before people have a go about the “racists” here, let’s think about how the Americans would feel if the New Captain America, was actually an Afghan?”

What the hell does Batman have to do with nationalities at all? If this was Captain America, then MAYBE, you would have an argument (though that’s a whole other discussion). But it’s not. Batman fights crime. He doesn’t fight in favor of any country, nationality, religion, or political leaning. He just fights in favor of the common good (and maybe you could argue that his definition of “common good” is based on judeo-christian values, but again, whole other discussion). His nationality does not factor at all in how he behaves.

So Bruce Wayne goes to France and finds this dude that is a capable and willing crime-fighter, so he chooses him to be his Bat-representative in the region. It also happens to be an immigrant.

Warner Todd Huston is a man who writes editorials with titles like “Making Islam Illegal: Is It The West’s Only Choice?” This is not a man who I’d trust to make any kind of rational commentary on any Muslim character in any form of fiction.

I don’t recall asking Santa for racism this year. Worst Christmas ever!

“What the hell does Batman have to do with nationalities at all? If this was Captain America, then MAYBE, you would have an argument (though that’s a whole other discussion). But it’s not.

My argument is that the crime fighting representative of France isn’t even french

As for the costume, this is what Dick should wear when he inevitably gives up being Batman, albeit maybe in a more Nightwing esque color scheme.

Wait a tic… how is Batman Inc. a socialist concept, exactly?
Anyway, this Warner Todd Huston character is obviously a bigot and shouldn’t be paid any mind.

Yeah, it’s completely ridiculous for a country in the DCU to have an immigrant as their greatest champion.

These right wing bloggers are doing what they are always doing – fear mongering. They are so vile, so absurd, and so ridiculous. I don’t think they even live in the same world the rest of us live in.

It sads me to think there are conservative comic book fans but of course there are many if you look at any comic book forum. I don’t understand it myself but I rarely understand these backward people.

I think its great that the French Batman is a Muslim. I mean, why not?

“My argument is that the crime fighting representative of France isn’t even french”

I haven’t read the comic book so I could be wrong, but isn’t Nightrunner a representative of Batman in France, not a representative of France? So who cares what his nationality is. I mean, if he was Captain France made and endorsed by the French, it would be a different story.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Supergirl, Powergirl and Martian Manhunter weren’t even born in the U.S.– are any of them even naturalized citizens?

Where are their papers?

Shiny Jim’s comment = thread.

And while, yeah, making a french person the Batman of France seems the obvious choice…

…That’s kinda the problem.

This guy is a blogger who makes money based on number of hits so any controversy he can stir up only puts more money in his pocket.

@Shiny Jim- *stares intently*….oh I see what your doing…

Nations have immigrants, it’s not at all shocking to imagine these immigrants might have a sense of honor and justice which is what Batman stands for.

On a side note, that costume actually is pretty cool. To bad these characters will probably end up forgotten once Morrison leaves.

“New Captain America”?

WTF are you on? Batman is no Captain America. He is in no way a patriotic hero. So, the Batman of France has no ‘patriotic’ nature, as the ORIGINAL is not a patriotic hero.

Talk about a half assed argument.

As for him not being French, uhm, Batman doesn’t technically LIVE in Gotham, he lives in a mansion near Gotham, he isn’t really a part of the every day life of Gotham, he’s, like most rich people, existing in some parallel world where people care about fashion and eat thousand dollar dinners. He is less a Gotham-ite than this guy is a Parisian. The rich in every society have their own sphere, they are not a part of the culture at large, and really are not ‘us’. Which is why I don’t really care for Bruce Wayne as Batman, he’s a sociopath imposing his idea of justice on a world he knows nothing of, he can’t understand crime simply because he was a victim of it, he doesn’t understand anything of the people he deals with on a day to day basis as Batman. They’re alien to him. People who live from paycheck to paycheck trying to get by, they’re as alien to Bruce Wayne as Martian Manhunter.

Anyway, who the hell cares what the lunatic fringe thinks? They lash out at anything Not Like Them. Always have, always will.

how dare they pick an illegal kryptonian immigrant to be the champion of my pure white earth!!!! Oh wait he’s white? Never mind…………….

How dare a capitalist corporate superhero outsource his formerly lilly white symbol to an algerian muslim in the face of an overwhelmingly white population! Is the corny musketeer not good enough!

Weren’t these right-wing bloggers spouting anti-French diatribes only 6-7 years ago?

If they’ve got a beef, they can make a right-wing rag themselves. Not one thing is stopping them. But rather than espousing their viewpoint, they merely try to attack others. The right-wing – in the U.S. anyway – is now nothing more than a bunch of paranoid nihilists. Look at their rhetoric – Hispanics are out to get us, gays suck, blacks are worthless, Muslims can’t be trusted, etc, etc. It’s always the same ol’ scapegoating and fear-mongering and divisiveness with our political right. They stand for nothing but hatred, rich people and corporate supremacy. But I’ll give them this – they do know how to bring about EPIC catastrophes, from the Great Depression to the Bush Recession. Our biggest failures arise from the right-wing.

You can be a Frenchmen and a Muslim at the same time. Nothing strange about that, this is just a manufactured controversy. As for that idiot right wing blogger,…there is not a single expert who claims that the French riots of 2005 had anything to do with religion. The social underclass of France happens to be largely Muslim, so if there is unrest due to joblessness and or police discrimination it follows that the participants will also largely be Muslim. But religion was not the driving force.

Man, I’m going to buy this comic and watch Thor simply because it’ll piss these people off.

Wait, a right-winger is standing up against a perceived slight against the French? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS!?

@Jolewist: I’m pretty sure that an immigrant French citizen would, in fact, count as French. Indeed, if he’s legal, considers himself to be a French citizen first and formost, and loves his country, than I can’t even fathom why he wouldn’t qualify as a representative of France.

And, just for the record… yeah, let’s give an Afghan-born Captain America a shot. I think that concept could be a vehicle for stories that comment and enlighten some aspect of American culture (what makes an American, how we view immigrants or “others”, what defines heroism across cultures and in America) in a way that just wouldn’t work for other characters..

Then Warner Todd Huston can ignore all that and call it Islamofascocommunist propoganda that’s destroying America and making children into homosexual atheist Spanish-speaking liberal wingnuts.

@Sharif: But think of the licensing opportunities! Wayne Enterprises needs the extra capital; they’ve been pouring good money after bad into WayneTech and the Batman operation for years.

“Wait, a right-winger is standing up against a perceived slight against the French? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS!?”

I was pretty surprised by that too. Apparently “Muslim” > “French” in the current mathematics of bigotry.

But, yeah. Character belonging to a scapegoated religion, and he’s an immigrant to boot? Haters gonna hate.

Good point about the difference between this and the Thor business.

Nightrunner sounds like a great character and I love his costume design. It’s a pity that he’s getting negative press, but I hope this means more attention will go to him and we’ll see some one-shots or an ongoing series about him.

Jolewist’s indignation over “the crime fighting representative of France isn’t even french” made me crack up. XD Seriously? Okay. It’s not like Superman is a crime-fighting representative of the U.S. or anything. We all gotta make sure that only natural-born citizens represent their… oh, wait, that’s *presidents,* not superheroes. I get those mixed up sometimes. It was Lincoln that ended the Civil War with his laser-vision, right?

Seriously, though. Legal immigrants are not second-class citizens. I don’t feel that it is right to demean them with such statements. Just because a character was born somewhere else does not mean he or she can’t be heroes of their current hometown. Just because their culture or beliefs are not the most prevading belief in the country does not mean they cannot be a hero within that country.

And, for that matter, wearing a Bat-symbol is not a French flag. If these details bother you too much, you can tell yourself: He’s not the crime fighting representative of France. He’s a crime fighting Batman-representative IN France. Does that help you feel better?

On a different subject, about the Thor controversy, I find it clever that their statement said: “It seems that Marvel Studios believes that white people should have nothing that is unique to themselves.” Yeah, mm-hmm. White “people.” I think they mean White Men. Because if Heimdall were represented by a blond, Norwegian *actress* they would be kicking up a big fuss too.

C’mon! Thor is a great series, but the Marvel version has as much sci-fi elements as it does have mythical elements. In his first appearance, he fought rock aliens for cripes’ sakes! A norse god fighting rock aliens. Why so serious? Let it go and enjoy the ride.

Please. Current French president is from an immigrant family. His ethnic background is part Hungarian and part Jewish if I’m not wrong. Of course he’s white and a Christian, so I suppose there’s no problem being a real “French” there. I see the Christmas spirit shines bright.

Just because someone is from a Muslim/Jewish/Chinese/Black/etc immigrant family that doesn’t mean they can’t love and cherish the country they live in. Or that they are not real “Americans/French/Germans/English etc.”…I can’t call these people paranoid anymore. There’s a sense of relish in their behavior. I understand being afraid, they’re not afraid at all. This is the worst kind of garbage.

If you’re not pissing off some right-wing fucktard you’re doing something wrong so I say congrats to DC and David Hine for another good day’s work.

Yeah, Hine deserves so much praise for doing merely what his editors told him to do. Because he’s proven himself to be the bastion of tolerance with his intense Catholic-bashing in the thankfully-cancelled Azrael.

So, how long until the Saudi, Iran, and Iraq Batman all appear and turn out to be not only Muslim but New Zealanders to boot?

Socialist? Corporate franchising to expand into new markets sounds pretty capitalist to me.

The idea of the international batmen is only painting US stereotypes

I’m glad to see everything I felt I had to say has already been said. This whole thing is ridiculous, but I’ll take comics getting press any way possible.

Going, back to the Heimdal issue, I though people would be upset that since the character just basically guards the entrance to Asgard, they would object that the producers were making the one token minority in Asgard a glorified doorman, letting the white people in an out of Heaven. I’m glad that a much more rational argument formed instead.

On the Nightrunner issue, I have to say: Sweet costume! Part of the reason he wears a mask is because they don’t think the typical frenchman would see him as “their” hero. He also runs into trouble trying to break up street protests, losing the backing on “his” people. They don’t treat it as a simple issue.

“My argument is that the crime fighting representative of France isn’t even french”

Really ? He was born in France, grew up in France, speaks French with his friends, in school, with his family. One of the main themes of the character’s origin is his love for a particular musician, who speaks and sings in French.

What makes Bilal not French?

@Jolewist, have you read the actual comic, or just the bullshit bigoted criticisms?

From the first part of the origin Bilal Asselah, Nightrunner, is a French citizen, and has lived in Paris his entire life. He is the child of immigrants, but he and his family are French citizens and Bilal himself is a born native. The “Batman” of France is French, this is all about something that isn’t in the comics at all.

You can be french, born in France and non white. It is nothing weird or rare. We are not anymore in the 1940′s.
As a french guy don’t see anything wrong with a muslim french Batman.
There are millions of black/arab/asian french people.

If the problem are the riots, these have nothing to do with the religion and these didn’t traumatise France. In fact civil unrest are not uncommon.
Muslims french fighting crime is not something weird, “muslims” police officers are more and more common.
I use the ” ” because police officers don’t have any religion in service, they represent the secular France.

I would love to see more diversity in the american comics, movie where some of the action take place in France.
Seeing the streets of Paris only full of white people seems weird.

Anyone who knows Batman knows that if Nightrunner were the sort of guy who would let his religion or ethnicity get in the way of doing the job of fighting (super)crime, then he wouldn’t be offered the job in the first place.

Now given the nature of social unrest in France, this would be very interesting territory for superheroics.

“DO YOU THINK THIS B ON MY HELMET STANDS FOR FRANCE?! CAUSE IT DOES.”

Surprised the joke took this long…

Republican bloggers???

Don’t feed the trolls.

The blogger is motivated by hatred, elitism and ego.

Nationalism is an outdated idea anyway. I’m half French-Canadian and I have about as much allegiance to a ‘pure’ French identity as I do to a pure ‘Frankish’ identity or a pure ‘Gaulic’ identity. Life is a process. Attachment to a national identity is an extension of one’s ego. Me, my family, my friends, my team, my tribe, my country. Me, me, me.

This blogger is a child.

I think we’ve all identified the most important factor here: just how awesome that costume is. On a scale of one to ten, it’s Madrox.

This “blogger” and all who agree with him should be honest and come out and say that the reason he’s bitching is because this Batman isn’t white. I hate racist cowards. They think no one knows what they mean (or they don’t care) but everyone knows they are full of crap.

Maggie, to be honest, I don’t think the assholes actually oppose the character because he isn’t white, but because he is a Muslim. I don’t like Conservatives much, and I oppose most things they stand for, but seriously, nowadays the disputes are much more about culture and religion than about skin color. I bet they would love a black character that is a Conservative Christian.

The Heimdall thing is a very different issue. It’s annoying because it’s anachronistic as hell. It would be like Brad Pitt playing Anansi in a movie about African gods. But as annoying as it is, it’s a small thing and not something to get seriously upset about.

Based on the issues Huston brings up, he’s not a comics enthusiast/critic who just happens to have a strong conservative perspective (which would be interesting if he happened to be a good writer) but a demagogue who is out to prove to his readership that “the mainstream media” has a liberal/socialist/pro-Muslim/anti-American bias.

It’s all about the paranoid world view shared by Huston and his regular audience.

Fuck this guy, he’s a moron. Stop giving him press.

My daughter is 3. When she wants attention she screams and throws things. So as not to encourage this behavior we ignore her until she calls the hell down.

Holy smokes … I never thought I’d see the day … Bruce Wayne is a socialist and right-wing conservatives give a flying @$#% about defending France’s honor. Good God. And for the record, I’d read a black Captain America. Although I’m not sure the character would be very easy to write since he would likely be fighting fascist neocons instead of Nazis.

I cannot wait to read this story. It sounds like an awesome concept. And since I haven’t read it yet, I can’t speak authoritatively, but I saw nothing in the solicitations suggesting that Nightrunner isn’t French. Jeez … I didn’t think it would be necessary to explain to people that someone can be a citizen of a country by birth while also belonging to a minority ethnicity and religion. Goodness gracious! Calm down people! It’s a comic book for crying out loud!

So when did the phrase “politically correct” become shorthand for “not beatin’ on negroes/muzzies/(insert racial or otherwise oppressed minority slur here)?” Is that even what it means? Do we even know what that phrase means anymore?

Haters gonna hate, Racist gonna racist.

Since day one, dr ivo

these people getting all upset that a new bat man inc recruit is a muslim and happens to be operating in france. should relize the character is fiction its just a comic book. for think dc is trying to make its universe as diversise as the real world. all differant cultures being super heroe’s in the dc universe including muslim. these people all upset over it need to relize the comic is fiction the character is not flesh and blood.

How does a (possibl illegal) immigrant fight crime in an area where institutional rape and discrimination BY MUSLIMS are two of the most serious crimes to be fought?

This has not only shown Warner comics to be culturally ignorant and politically skewed, it also shows how damaging it is to let black magician / socialist nutballs write mainstream comicbooks.

James 1:

Yes, there are aspects of modern Islamic societies that are irreconcilable to our western concepts of universal human rights and equality under the law. However, let us consider that if Nightrunner is working for Batman, then he is going to have to abide by Batman’s moral code, no that of Hamas, Hezbollah, or al-Qaeda.

Remember that there are Muslim activists (obviously they are not the ones in power) who are openly critical of the sorts of human rights abuses of which you speak. How do you know Nightrunner isn’t in league with those guys as far as his personal beliefs?

I don’t like the big bat on this costume. It makes little sense other than he’s a Batman crony. Art is gorgeous, though. What else has Trevor McCarthy done?

Conservative bloggers criticizing Muslim Batman is a cakewalk. Wait till liberal comedian Bill Maher gets wind of this.

See video of Bill Maher on Islam:

http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/jjmnolte/2010/10/30/bill-maher-am-i-a-racist-to-feel-alarmed-by-thought-of-islam-taking-over-the-western-world/

OUCH!

I never really considered Maher a liberal.

James, I distrust Islam just like I distrust most organized religions. Actually, I distrust Islam more, because there is no way to deny that nowadays many of the most radical and violent religious fanatics are Muslim. But it’s a “leap of evil” to go from being aware of human rights violations done by Muslim societies to believing that every single Muslim is a villain. There is no reason why one particular Muslim can’t be as heroic as any other person.

O Holy Night. There seems to be an assumption being made by many people that you can’t be French and practice Islam and another that all Muslim’s are inherently bad people. Some people need to get out of the house and travel a bit and meet real people.

If you look at it from the standpoint of US citizen/naturalization/immigration law, as a second-generation immigrant he is rightfully a citizen of the country his family immigrated to. Technically, that would make me a French citizen thus the French Batman outright. Yet French citizen/naturalization/immigration laws are different and disenfranchise him (and so many others) from being recognized as full French citizens no matter how many generations their family has been in France.

I have no problem with the muslim thing. He could be a taoist for all I care.

But I have worked with an Algerian before who told me how is entire village (including is 4 yrs old sister) was slaughtered by rebels armed with machetes just for the sake of getting rid of the French descendants in that country. And there are a lot more gruesome tales that no American newspaper ever mentionned about the decolonization war that happened in Algeria between 1954 and 1962. More than one million people died in that civil war. Some fled back to France others to Canada. They tried very hard to keep a low profile and fit in ever since.

I understand that making a new Batman an algerian descendant in France would give him an interesting background. But at what cost… There is a lot of pain still in the air. It did happen less than 50 years ago and we still hear echos of it in the news, in the form of riots, gang murders, racist attacks in France and in Algeria.

It would be ashamed to have a comic book ignoring those events. As much as I love Batman, they are entering a very sad road that maybe they should not have taken in the first place.

“You can be a Frenchmen and a Muslim at the same time. Nothing strange about that, this is just a manufactured controversy. As for that idiot right wing blogger,…there is not a single expert who claims that “the French riots of 2005 had anything to do with religion.

But religion was not the driving force.”

Im French, look at my IP.
Eh oui mon vieux,pas de chance, hein… Heureusement qu’il y à des FDS dans le coin pour rectifier les conneries que tu racontes et je vais le faire illico…
Well, let’s get straight on this ; 10 millions of muslims in France, prison full of them at 70%, supported by all the justice, ie, you kill someone, 5 years of prison and you get out at 2,5 years. Cops are not allowed by the gov to shoot to defends themselves, they are afraid more of their hierarchy than the thugs 90% of muslims origins. Schools are violent places where young muslims rules entirely ; authorities are all afraid to be accused of racism if they react, so they do not. French runs aways from all that is not white because they know that they won’t be protected if they have problems with someone of the “diversity”, and they know that if they react they will be accused of being racist .They run away from the schools, places where muslims are present and rules with chariah law more and more.
About the 2005 riots it is known and recorded that many muslims screams Allah hu Akbar during the combat. It is findable on the internet.
About the poverty and jobless, districts populated by the majority of muslims are poor, but they are not the more poor in France and there, no burning cars, riots, violence, etc.
France’s population have never been asked the question : do you want an immigration of people who just fired up your co citizens from Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, who is part of a culture, a religion, a civilisation who has never stopped to fight yours since its birth ?
France is not US, folks, we have 2000 years of history, 1000 years of a constitued state. US gov want a destroyed Europe to get rid of this competitor in the economic war. USA gov hold by the Wall Street Banksters and Baruk Hussein are ALLIED with the SAUDI because of OIL, they have sold Europe, they are solding now their own people : mosque near WTC, what a shame, and the SAUDI applause guys, ROFLMAO, f*** infidels, they protect us and we stab them and they do not realize LMAO !… thousand immigrants of muslim world coming in America LMAO !, they do not care guys, they do not care of YOU guys.
Sure guys, theres some place with no issues in France, sure…

I may post photographs of children and women tortured and beheaded by Algerians now living in France but I suppose it could “offense” them and it is not politically correct. The Algerian tradition consists in beheading with a large knife, cutting the male sex and then putting it in the mouth of the decapitated head. It was very popular among Muslims… oups, Islamists, in the Algerian civil war in the 90s (as well as nose and lip cutting).

For Christ Sake…
It’s a COMIC BOOK, fellas… a COMIC BOOK.

THANK YOU DC!

PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER!

Bonjour,
Je suis française aussi et je confirme les propos de toto et je vais essayer de m’expliquer dans mon mauvais anglais :
We are living actually in a sort of totalitarism in Entire Europe. Our government take the defense of immigrant people and muslims to substitute all of us ( original/ real french people ). Justice don’t care about agression and violence whom french people are victims. Many of this violence come from immigrant people and especially come from muslim people. This violence increase incredibly. It could seem fool, realy crazy but these muslim act under the protection of our government ! Many people in France doesn’t accept this situation but more people wouldn’t see this like nothing happens ! To explain you the situation, if a muslim burns a car, the french flag, rapes, stoles many times or deals drugs he will be free. Our justice let his free. If he kill some body he could take some years in jail ( 5 years or little more ) but usually a prisonner become free at the middle of the number of year of his sentence. For exemple, dans l’Yonne some years ago, a family was killed in a violent homejaking and the criminals takes 3 years. If a french kill an immigrant or a muslim the risk is more high to take numerous years of jail ( 30 years ). Everybody is not coward or blind but if you kill a muslim you go down to the hell in France. We think a war like it was in Yougoslavia is preparing. We are waiting this war. We don’t like muslim. We hate them because we have a lot suffer because of them. they are evil people who believe they live in a right way and believe to know the truth !

Sorry for my very bad english, I don’t master this langage

’ the French Batman is to be a Muslim immigrant,” ???

ROFLMAO, or mort de rires as we say here. Is this “french batman” (quelle horreur !) selling drugs, oppressing women, crying all the day because real French are so mean and so racist ? Is he asking us to pay for more mosquees, is he burning cars or attacking firemen in the suburbs ? Is he jobless and living, with his fatmas and 5/6 kids on the social benefits paid by the rest of us ? Is he planing a terrorist attack against us or you, the usa ?

Non ? Because that’s what muslims and others africans parasits do in France.

French people, the real ones, the white ones, were betrayed for the last 40 years. They were sold by their corrupt politicians, for oil, for business, for being part of the empire… And yes, they were stupid enough to vote for those scumbags, because they were told by the propaganda that they were living in a democracy wich is supposed to protect them. But more and more of us are begining to understand, are begining to see the reality, and it’s not pretty.

But soon, it will be the end of the story, cause we can’t afford that anymore, no more euros for the invaders, no more tolerance for the barbarians. And, like in the rest of western Europe, we only have two options now : we fight back or we disappear.

Actually, with our history, there is only one option. We don’t want to tell, but we are a lot to know, we were just asleep, and we’re already preparing, again. And it won’t be pretty. Be ready, in the next decade, for the big bloody thing in Europe.

Ce sera eux ou nous. Mais nous sommes chez nous, et nous luttons pour la survie de notre civilisation. Ni plus, ni moins.

Absolutly agree with the french people here (civil war soon ?)

Salut les FDS! Salut aussi à vous, pauvres ricains.

A few words, in english, of course.

France is about to fall into a cold civil war. Entire territories are under muslim control, or in a near african tribal way of life.

Muslims in France beg, cry, yell, threaten, steal, strike, kill, rape and most of all accuse french people for what they do. So the idea of a muslim youngster from clichy beeing a super hero is quite humourous.

But you know, we are used to live in an Orwell-made state. This batman thing is just ordinary here, where we are told that islam is peace, young africans are pure and rebels because we made them poor, etc

Fellow americans, be prepared, it’s coming to you. Soon, a superb Mosquee will dominate the ground zero and you will have to repent yourselves for all the evil you made to muslim people. That’s the way it is here, and it’s coming to you sooner than you think.

After an algerian muslim as the french batman, why not a russian communist as the new Captain America ? Or an iranian muslim, for more consistency… Let’s be crazy, and enjoy being humiliated ! l-)

I’m french and in our country, algerians are scums. Our taxations are divert to buy mosques, our church are change to be mosques, muslims fight christians…
And USA help muslims to dominate the europeans, they want to be cool with muslims. They think Europa is not important, and they need good relatioship with Arabs states… USA help islamists website like http://oumma.com/
We are so unstrung…
Criticisms are impossibles. Sometime there is a jur to condamn european who criticizite Islam, but muslims are free (they broke our flag, they fight policemen, they fight homosexuals, jews, christians).

Please, tell that in your circle of friends and family. That’s the only verity.
My family is french since many centurys, and i will leave the country of my hearth, the country of my ancestors, because that’s not my country today…

What’s gonna happen if he has to fight a Pork-themed villain?
Since muslim can’t even touch pigs, his arch-enemy shall be… Spider-pig!!!

To Shazarma, Muslims can touch pigs genius, we just cant eat them and touching them, along with any animal, puts us in a spiritually unclean state which only means we cant pray until we cleanse ourselves through wudu. Seriously, read a book or something.
