Last night Bosch Fawstin, the former-Muslim-turned-anti-jihadist crusader, was quizzed on The Daily Show regarding his alarm over Nightrunner, Batman’s parkour-practicing Muslim French sidekick. Aasif Mandvi does the interviewing, and he also gets Chris Sims (one ‘m’) from Comics Alliance to explain what’s happening from a comics blogger point of view.
Shockingly, the segment is very funny. Fawstin has his take on it here, and rather than getting in a foment, wisely praises the segment for selling more copies of his upcoming GN, THE INFIDEL, about a jihadist-hunting superhero named Pigman. Fawstin, who now claims the objectivist creed as his own, has a website filled with “interesting” essays about the Jihad threat and why the only good Muslims are Muslims who aren’t really that religious. Where was this guy during the Crusades?
