The Cargo-Bike Imam on Music

I’m starting to get the hang of the Cargo-Bike Imam, after seeing a few of his videos. For those of you who missed the earlier ones, see the Cargo-Bike Imam on Religion and Education.

Najib Amhali still doesn’t make me roll on the floor, but at least I get the point of the jokes in this one. It’s the use of small children in such a context that drains all the ha-ha out of it.

As usual, our Flemish correspondent VH did the translation, and Vlad Tepes subtitled it:

- - - - - - - - -
If the writers had taken a leaf from Monty Python’s book, they would have dressed their usual actors and actresses up in little-kid clothes and had them play the part of the schoolchildren. Then this really would have been funny.

But when I look at these little tiny kids in the middle of all this nastiness, I can’t help thinking of what it would have been like for my kid if he had been involved in something like this. The future Baron was a thoughtful child, and the ideas and images in these sketches would have disturbed him greatly at that age. Irony is not something that small children understand.

Perhaps the parents of these children are hip, modern, tolerant Amsterdam sophisticates, and don’t see the problem with putting their children to work in such an environment.

In any case, I’m probably just displaying a typical American sentimentality about children. I need to chill out and relax and develop a more light-hearted European-style attitude towards these things…

This is not humor but brainwashing. But keep on bringing us more cargo-bike imams. This is exactly what islam is about.

I think it is okay. Actually, I think we need more anti-diverse things like this. I mean, we don't need to batalantly put down all ethnic minorities but making fun of them relaxed once in a while is good, I think.

The little children don't bother me at all. They know they are part of the game, they make the jokes happen.

Still, it is not ha ha fun. It is thought-provoking fun. And teaches the Dutch parents not to trust relations between muslims and their children. I like it.

VH, how did you made the legends? Is it simple or what?
Thanks

I understand Nederlands (Dutch) and if the makers' intent was to expose Muslims as intolerant lunatics, they have succeeded well.

Somehow, I can't imagine that p.c. Dutch TV would dare convey that message to its ultra-liberal, multi-culti audience. It would even be illegal under their "hatespeech" laws.
~~ (SEARCH: "The Downfall of The Netherlands: land of the naive fools" for what happens to those who break this "code".)

Thus, what the real point of this idiocy is, I can't fathom.

A demented Mohammedan rides into town and teaches children to hate and kill gays?

All this would "teach" me, if I were a kid in Holland, was that Geert Wilders, Theo Van Gogh, and Pim Fortuyn were right.

"Geen meer Islameiters!"

(No more Muslims!)
