Looney Tunes: Supreme Leader Issues Fatwa To Require Cartoon Women To Wear Hijabs

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei reportedly issued a fatwa to deal with a rising threat against the stability and morality of the Islamic Republic: all cartoon and animated women must wear hijabs. It is not clear if Khamenei will also create a cartoon version of Iran’s thuggish morality police, the Gasht-e Ershad, to pursue such “women” in the virtual streets of cartoons.

The issue was raised by a viewer and reported on the IranWire news website. Khamenei was asked “Is observing hijab necessary for characters in animated films (three-dimensional paintings that come from the artist’s mind)?”

Khamenei responded with a rather convoluted answer: “Although wearing hijab in such a hypothetical situation is not required per se, observing hijab in animation is required due to the consequences of not wearing hijab.” So wearing hijabs are not required but they are required because of the consequences of not wearing hijabs.

Apparently, the same Looney Tune logic applies to a cartoon woman.

The story stood out for me because of our own struggle with the issue of virtual porn.  Some have argued that laws against child pornography should apply even when no actual child is depicted in a purely computer generated context. In a 2002 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a provision of federal law that banned computer simulations and virtual pornography under the first amendment. In Ashcroft v. The Free Speech Coalition, Justice Kennedy in a 6-3 decision found that the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996 was “overbroad” and swept within its prohibitions many valuable and artistic works.

“Pictures of what appear to be a 17-year-old engaging in sexually explicit activity do not in every case contravene community standards . . . The (Act) also prohibits speech having serious redeeming value, proscribing the visual depiction of an idea — that of teenagers engaging in sexual activity — that is a fact of modern society and has been a theme in art and literature for centuries.”

That is clearly not a concern for Khamenei who wants women covered regardless of whether they are real or cartoon.  I suspect he may have seen “Who Killed Roger Rabbit?” and the distinctly immodest appeal of Jessica Rabbit.  However, the scene may not have quite the impact in a hijab:

  1. Speaking of Looney Tunes….as Sean Davis says: “it’s frightening how much we have to update this Joe Biden lie tracker.”

    Here’s The Full List Of Every Lie Joe Biden Has Told As President

    https://thefederalist.com/2021/01/22/heres-the-full-list-of-every-lie-joe-biden-has-told-as-president/

    ….and the list keeps growing….where o where is the media and the fast and furious fact checkers we never heard the end of during Trump’s four years?? Why o why did the media Fact Checkers go to sleep immediately upon Joe Biden’s “election”? It’s just a mystery….not.

  2. Only in dictatorships, such as the Iranian theocracy, Saudi monarchy, etc., does the state perversely order family conduct and maintenance.

    And Comrade Mittens Rotney (RINO, Utah) wants to further nullify the Constitution and expand communism in America, just like the Thief-in-Chief and incurably demented loser, “Plugs Biden.” Mittens does not believe in the essential American thesis of freedom and self-reliance. Mittens believes that his intellectual superiority and that of his socially-engineered, centrally-planned, means-of-production-controlled, redistributionist Marxist ilk must prevail and dictate. Mittens is anti-American and a traitor. Mittens should vigorously pursue his happiness as a purveyor and distributor of charity in the free markets of the private sector. Mittens is a communist (ie. liberal, progressive, socialist, democrat, RINO).

    To wit,

    “Last week, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) released a bold plan for a monthly child benefit that would meaningfully reduce child poverty. Run through the Social Security Administration, his plan would provide monthly payments of $250 for children ages six to 17, and $350 to those under age six. The benefit would phase-out beginning at $200,000 in income for a single parent and $400,000 in income for a married couple. The benefit would go to almost all parents and would not depend on parental work status or the use of market-based childcare, as current child tax credits are.”

    The American Founders established a restricted-vote republic, under the dominion of the “manifest tenor” of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, wherein government is severely limited and restricted, and the people are provided maximal freedom. The singular American failure has been and continues to be the Supreme Court and the greater judicial branch, which should have immediately struck down every act of central planning, control of the means of production (i.e. regulation), redistribution of wealth and social engineering over the past 160 years. The SCOTUS and judicial branch should have begun with the “Reign of Terror” of “Crazy Abe” Lincoln (Lincoln should have allowed freedom and market forces to constitutionally eliminate slavery; which, ironically, would have never existed but for the noble African exercise of African tribal chiefs [liable for reparations] abducting and selling fellow Africans).

    When do Americans get their freedom and their country back?

    1. You don’t want freedom, George, you want white male supremacy.

      You’ve said repeatedly that women shouldn’t have the right to vote. You have more in common with Khamenei than you’d like to admit.

  3. There’s mayhem be reported in Cartoonville, Elmer, Bugs, Daffy, Pepe Le Pew, Tweety, Sylvester and Porky are extremely upset with Mr. Turley’s post associating them with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei . The Tasman is rampaging looking to bit someone, Henery Hawk is flying in circles with outrage, and Wile E. Coyote is in search of Jonathan. They’ve been advised to settle down or they may be admitted to the Loony Bin.

  4. Looney Tunes Supreme Court Justices have attracted yet more corrosive commentary.

    https://thefederalist.com/2021/02/23/supreme-court-denial-of-2020-election-cases-invites-erosion-of-voter-confidence/

    Opening statement:

    “The Supreme Court’s abdication of its authority to answer important constitutional questions threatens even more chaotic federal elections.”

    Yes it does.

    Justice Thomas shinned as a brilliant light of reason in his dissent. God grant that the others may begin to heed him! But it may be too late. Some wonder whether they are fearful, compromised, or simply stupid in some way unique to educated-to-imbecility people.

  5. If you want to see a real war on women, go to any number of countries with severe laws or customs on dress and the movement of women. There are parts of the world where a man needs a male chaperone just to leave the house.

    I had my own little shock when I was in the rainforest. I had that typical secure feeling of safety that most Americans have, so ludicrous when it isn’t shed when you leave the country. I left the rainforest and went into a city still wearing Khaki shorts, which were apparently quite shocking for a woman to wear. I was by myself as the people I was meeting wouldn’t be along until the next day. I wanted to explore the city. I kept hearing this insect like noise and getting pretty aggressive looks from men. It turns out the insect noise was their version of the wolf whistle. An elderly man pulled me aside and told me to get away from the beach, go to my hotel room, and lock the door. He said a tourist had been attacked on the beach for a camera like mine, and my clothes were seriously provoking the men. He said women don’t wear that here. I rushed back to the dingy hotel room, put on some pants, and even changed hotels.

    It was a surreal feeling, and one of the very few times I felt seriously unsafe in that country. I loved that country, and that trip, but the rest of the world is not like the US.

    I’ve known Middle Eastern women who were arrested for the most ridiculous things. One girl’s father had to bribe a judge with a house to get her out of the country and back to the US, where she was born. I’ve personally known women from other countries who were forced into arranged marriages, forced to sleep on the floor, beaten, starved…I knew one sweetheart foreign exchange student who would cry about school ending, because when she returned she would be given in marriage to a much older man. She was offered refuge with a family in the US, and to start the asylum process, but she wouldn’t do it. She said her family would disown her, and she couldn’t bear for her mother to never speak to her again. Or worse could have happened to her if they’d retrieved her. So off she went.

    Women are so incredibly spoiled in the United States. Freedom of religion, of speech, and to go wherever you want is such a rarity for women of the world. I see women choose to work, or to stay home with their children, and then go on to complain that women earn less than men. Well, more women take time off, or stay at home, than men, and more women choose lower paying jobs like elementary school teacher…so mathematically yes they do earn less. But it’s an earnings gap, not a misogynistic wage gap. Yet women feel put upon. They want to take off 6 months for each of their 2 children, but be exactly in the same advancement, promotion, and raise schedule as a man who took none of that time off and completed 7 more goals during her absences. But that’s not fair.

    Women, kiss the ground and bless your lucky starts to be in the United States. It could be worse. So much worse.

    1. I’m glad nothing happened to you, Prairie. There was a Frontline episode decades ago about a woman who went to a poor Latin American community to basically save the world from Ronald Reagan. What she didn’t know is that in some regions, they believed American women stole the organs of small children. She was attacked by a mob and permanently brain-damaged.

      Leftists and jihadis spread these kinds of bigotries to undermine American influence, and naïve–often well-meaning–people get killed.

      Then there’s the well-known story of the American girl who went to South Africa to help the poor and was murdered by “necklacing.” Many more sad stories of westerners targeted by jihadis.

      The Amazon rainforest? Or some other rainforest?

    3. “Women are so incredibly spoiled in the United States. Freedom of religion, of speech, and to go wherever you want is such a rarity for women of the world…”

      “Women, kiss the ground and bless your lucky starts to be in the United States. It could be worse. So much worse.”

      The U.S. is a great place for some women, to be sure, but there are other countries when women fare quite well — and even better than women in the U.S., by some measures:

      https://giwps.georgetown.edu/the-index/

      https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/best-women

      “Studies have shown that same countries score particularly high in taking care of their elderly, as well, with Danish women over 65 reporting to be the happiest in the European bloc. It’s little surprise, then, that Scandinavian countries dominated the 2020 list of the Best Countries for Women.”

            1. Yeah, another hateful America. Lovin’ mankind. Lovin’ your fellow Americans.

              “Spoiled” rotten, some might say?

          1. “Not everyone who comments is from the U.S.”

            Anonymous the Stupid, in your case, that is not the question. Based on your habits and Stupidity one has to wonder if you are from this planet. You sound like you don’t belong, but that is common amongst the people living in mental hospitals.

      1. “The U.S. is a great place for some women, to be sure, but there are other countries when women fare quite well — and even better than women in the U.S., by some measures:”

        Israel is one of those places. Anonymous the Stupid you should visit Israel one day if you haven’t already.

          1. Overall what? You are too Stupid to even recognize that you have told us nothing. There is a happiness index I think by the UN and the Israeli population ranked very high over the years and ranked higher than the US.

            Israel wouldn’t rank overall as high as it’s happiness rating. It has enemies surrounding them on all sides and enemy rockets landing on their territory sometimes daily. But their happiness rating is very high so that tells you something.

            Anonymous the Stupid you are too ignorant for words.

    4. My wife kisses the ground every time we return from abroad. She knows all too well the horrors that await women and men all over the world. First hand experience makes one recognize a lot of the foolishness we hear on this blog.

      1. S. Meyer make all kinds of assumptions and many of them are wrong.

        S. Meyer contributes to “the foolishness we hear on this blog.”

        1. I feel bad for his wife. If that poster is the old Allen, he has openly admitted to perving on teenagers and “making comments” about them to his dork friends. I remember his post was funny as well as creepy because he specified “19-year-olds” as if he asks for identification before he starts leering and drooling. His “barely legal” fantasies fit right in with any misogynistic society. Sad.

            1. Anonymous the Stupid uses anonymous as his alias yet is fixated on the aliases others use. Allan was smart. He kicked Anonymous the Stupid’s butt and made him look like the jerk he is. He demonstrated that Anonymous the Stupid didn’t know the difference between fascism, nazism, socialism etc. and at one time Allan got him to admit he thought fascism was swell.

              That is how Stupid Anonymous the Stupid is.

                1. Onward with the stupidity from Anonymous the Stupid.

                  Let me repeat: Anonymous the Stupid uses anonymous as his alias yet is fixated on the aliases others use. Allan was smart. He kicked Anonymous the Stupid’s butt and made him look like the jerk he is. He demonstrated that Anonymous the Stupid didn’t know the difference between fascism, nazism, socialism etc. and at one time Allan got him to admit he thought fascism was swell.

                  That is how Stupid Anonymous the Stupid is.

                  1. Allan-S. Meyer-Anon@8:55 is using illeism, again.

                    He gets up in the morning, dons his blog-beanie and badge, stands in front of the mirror and says:

                    “Allan is smart. Allan kicked that guy’s butt and made him look like the jerk he is… Allan will prevail.”

                    Too funny.

  6. Probably many (if not most) of the readers of this post, view American oath-sworn officials exceeding their constitutional authority, at taxpayer expense, as MORE obscene than what those officials are trying to censor. They swore an oath not to violate the First Amendment rights of Americans, the Press and Media. Most censorship, by a governing entity, is actually illegal in the United States – no agency has that legal authority.

  7. Remember when Facebook censored a fine art nude statue in a public park a few years ago posted by the national ACLU. Facebook suspended the entire ACLU FB page for that wrongdoing (not just the statue photo). A piece of fine art that anyone can see in a public park. Attorney General John Ashcroft supposedly spent about $7000 for a curtain to cover up a fine art statue owned by the taxpayers.

    Ironically, in Europe there are fine art statues like this everywhere, nude beaches, etc. and those nations have a lower sexual crime rate than the United States does. Maybe the Puritan culture still prevails in much of America? A social anthropologist should study this dysfunction we have that leads to a worse crime rate than nations that aren’t so Puritan in nature.

    Americans are more Ben Franklin than Oliver Cromwell.

  8. The way I read it there is no government penalty imposed on those who choose not to show animated characters in hijab. It looks like he is trying to use moral suasion, rather than state enforced compulsion, to guide community standards.

    I don’t see the issue.

  10. The same guys that will blindly follow the instruction of the Fatwa are going to have nuclear weapons….now that is not funny at all.

    1. Yeah Ralph, thanks for electing the JO who just got the boot from office and ended the nuclear deal. Both US and Israeli intelligence and IAEA on the ground inspectors confirmed that to that point, Iran was in compliance. Mr. “Art of the Deal” closed it down after Iran got it’s part – release of held Iranian private and government assets – and we didn’t – 12 years (and renewable) remained on their requirement to allow inspections and restrain from manufacturing components.

      NO wonder this guy went bankrupt so many times.

      1. “NO wonder this guy went bankrupt so many times.”

        That statement proves the small guy doesn’t understand bankruptcy. Trump never filed for personal bankruptcy. New business enterprises not infrequently end up bankrupt.

      2. AnonjF,

        Do you really believe Iran is not intent upon becoming a Nuclear Armed Power with the clear intent to be the dominant power in the Persian/Arabian Gulf Region?

        You do recall they call for the destruction of Israel and support many Islamic Terrorist groups that frequently attack Israel?

        They are not innocent by any stretch of the imagination despite their having some legitimate complaints about past American interference in their domestic affairs.

        By the way….I have lived in Iran for a number of years and traveled widely throughout the country…..have you?

  11. And we laugh at the mullahs as though are leftist taliban leaders aren’t just as bad. Ironic. When is the last time you saw a white straight male depicted on our media as anything other than a fool or cad? There are fundamentalists who wear suits and sip organic green tea, too.

    1. “When is the last time you saw a white straight male depicted on our media as anything other than a fool or cad? ”

      Oh, wait. Just the fat ones.

  12. Yeah SCOTUS just ruled that the election cases are “moot,” so yet another punt on procedural grounds from the biggest bunch of cowards to ever be assembled in one place but I’m very concerned about what cartoon women in Iran are doing so thank you Professor Turley for this timely article.

    1. Deb:
      There’s room for both stories but expecting courage from federal bureaucrats like judges is like expecting water from rocks. It’s awfully rare and usually requires divine intercession.

  13. What NO Supreme Leader of Iran has done in the last 200+ years is start a war. The two most dangerous countries in the Middle East are Israel and Saudia Arabia.

      1. Mespo:

        The alleged Saudi role in the September 11 attacks is the idea that the Saudi Arabian government was connected to the September 11 attacks in the United States. The final 28 pages of the December 2002 report of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, which were initially classified, were released on July 15, 2016 and provide details.

        The 28 pages state that some of the September 11 hijackers received financial support from individuals connected to the Saudi Government. FBI sources believed that at least two of those individuals were officers in the General Intelligence Presidency, the primary intelligence agency of Saudi Arabia. The U.S. Intelligence Community believed that individuals associated with the Saudi Government had ties to al-Qaeda.

        Although 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens,[1] the Saudi government had long had broad immunity from September 11 tragedy lawsuits in the United States, before a U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York judge allowed a suit against the government in March 2018.[2]

          1. The Saudi government did not support the attack. Bin Laden preferred Saudi terrorists for 911 so that amateurs like you would break the Saudi-American alliance and create instability in the Middle East. It didn’t work. You are confusing what individuals in the government might have done with what was actual government policy.

            Your citation above proves nothing and only suggests what we already know: some governments in the Middle East have rogue agents. Iran insists on being the enemy of your country’s interests and is an openly jihadi state. That is a real difference.

            1. Iran: Iranian president Mohamed Khatami[57][58][59] and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei condemned and denounced the attacks and the terrorists who carried them out. Iranians who gathered for a soccer match in Tehran two days after the 9/11 attacks observed a moment of silence. There was also a candlelight vigil. Huge crowds attended candlelit vigils in Iran, and 60,000 spectators observed a minute’s silence at Tehran’s soccer stadium.[60][61] On Tuesday, September 25, in 2001, Iran’s fifth president, Mohammad Khatami meeting British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, said: “Iran fully understands the feelings of the Americans about the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on September 11.” He said although the American administrations had been at best indifferent about terrorist operations in Iran (since 1979), the Iranians instead felt differently and had expressed their sympathetic feelings with bereaved Americans in the tragic incidents in the two cities.” He also stated that “Nations should not be punished in place of terrorists.”[62] According to Radio Farda’s website, in 2011, on the anniversary of the attacks, United States Department of State, published a post at its blog, in which the Department thanked Iranian people for their sympathy and stated that they would never forget Iranian people’s kindness on those harsh days. This piece of news at Radio Farda’s website also states that after the attacks’ news was released, some Iranian citizens gathered in front of the Embassy of Switzerland in Tehran, which serves as the protecting power of the United States in Iran, to express their sympathy and some of them lit candles as a symbol of mourning.[63]

              Iran offered the US fly rights to help supply troops in Afghanistan after 9/11.

              Saudi Arabia: Florida Democratic Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence at the time the report said in his sworn statements that “there was evidence of support from the Saudi government for the terrorists.”[21]

              1. Iran did that to avoid a backlash from the United States. Afghanistan was to the east and Iraq was to the west, and they were in the crosshairs. They also released the American-Embassy hostages right after Reagan took office. They didn’t do it because they loved Reagan. They did it because they feared Reagan as much as they despise the western fools who shill for them.

                The Saudi government did not support 911 terrorists. It is a wild-ass conspiracy theory to suggest the Saudi government would commit national suicide by surreptitiously murdering 3,000 people in a day in the United States. They could never keep that a secret, and 20 years later, there’s still no compelling evidence to support it. Bobblehead Graham is mistaken on the weight of the evidence.

                1. You’re making that up Diogenes, but nice try. Iran hated AQ because it was a Sunni organization and Iran is Shiite. Same reason they hated Saddam and the Saudi’s, and visa versa

                  We are fools to take sides on that one and our overthrow of Saddam was the biggest favor we could have done for Iran who had spent years and a million lives battling him on their border.

                  We are also fools to get too close to the Saudis who are the most repressive regime in the ME. Read “Infidel” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali refugee who ended up denouncing Islam, becoming an atheist rationalist member of the Dutch Parliament and friend of the assassinated filmmaker. She is now married to Nial Ferguson, the conservative historian. She recounts her days living as a girl in Somalia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia, which was the worst and a horrific experience. They hate the Iranians because they are Shiites. This has nothing to do with us and they will cut our throats if they have an excuse.

                  1. “You’re making that up Diogenes.” I stand by my statement. You don’t know how craven jihadis are.

                    I have a lot of sympathy for Ms. Ali, but a lot depends on the head-of-household in any country in the Middle East, including Saudi and Iran. If the head is a monster, it’s very bad, but most families are very loving. One can exaggerate how bad it is, but I would agree with you and her that that doesn’t justify that level of patriarchal authority. This is a problem specifically with Islamic Law–not any specific country–that needs reform.

                    “They will cut our throats if they have an excuse.” This is a blatantly bigoted statement. Some might. Most would not.

                    1. Diogenes, you made up the part about Iran acting in fear of the US. They are Shiites and AQ and Saddam are Sunni. They hate them worse than they hate us. Wake up.

                      The Saudi leadership will cut our throats if they have an excuse. That is not bigoted, it’s a statement of fact.

                    2. “They are Shiites and AQ and Saddam are Sunni. They hate them worse than they hate us. “

                      Another ignorant statement from our local ignoramus. That they hate each other is true but they hate us worse and will join together to fight us when convenient.

                      SM

                    3. I am awake and I standby my statements. Iran would break bread with the devil to harm this country.

                  1. These are heavily-redacted documents provided by lawyers seeking to sue Saudi Arabia. Proves nothing about the Saudi government. Now specific individuals in Saudi–I can’t defend everybody; however, it is not, and never has been, Saudi policy to murder thousands of its military allies.

                    Since you guys are perpetrating hoaxes to defend Iran and undermine our allies, allow me to speculate wildly that the NYT and WaPo would love to run fake news against the Saudi government to revenge Khashoggi. That’s what’s really going on here, but you won’t admit it.

              2. Let’s just get to the real subtext of this discussion. You’re determined to screw the Saudi government over Khashoggi, isn’t that correct?

      2. mespo – I agree that Israel and Saudia Arabia are not friends of democracy. You may believe they are peace-loving democracies, but you would be as wrong about that as you are about your devotion to the notion that Trump is an honorable man whose election was stolen in November.

            1. What Bill seems to forget or never knew in the first place is that Arabs, Christians, Jews and others all vote in the same elections with one vote for one person. Arabs are represented in the Knesset and on the Supreme Court.

              What is it about democracy that he doesn’t understand? It has to be bigotry unless he can provide a better reason.

    1. ” is start a war. “

      It’s fine that you think the way you do. You have no control over anything and in the recent years Iran has been unable to start a full scale war. If they had the ability they probably would have already gone to war. However, in lieu of war, Iran has become the biggest state sponsor of terrorism. They fund Hamas, Hezbollah, the war in Yemen and they are even in South America. They are elsewhere as well. They even have naval exercises with the Chinese and Russians.

      You can keep your opinions, but anyone listening has to wonder what you are thinking because a lot of what you say doesn’t make sense. To top things off many of your ideas conflict with one another.

      1. “You can keep your opinions, but anyone listening has to wonder what you are thinking because a lot of what you say doesn’t make sense. To top things off many of your ideas conflict with one another.”

    2. “What NO Supreme Leader of Iran has done in the last 200+ years is start a war.”

      That is dangerously ignorant.

      Since the mid-80s, it has been known and widely publicized by the State Department, that Iran is the world’s greatest state sponsor of terrorism. Its desire to spread Islamic totalitarianism is conducted via proxies throughout the Middle East and Africa. The Iranian theocracy has been at war against its own people for some 40 years.

      1. Our troll friends wouldn’t last five minutes in an Iranian torture chamber, but some are determined to defend Tehran anyway.

        1. And to claim, bizarrely, that Iran sympathized with America after the 9/11 attacks. The fact is that Iran took a temporary break from weekly chants of “death to America” and the issuing of fatwas, because it was petrified that America would retaliate against Iran (which we should have done).

          As its own officials have admitted, and our intelligence already knew, Iran provided material support to the terrorists. Its own president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, openly claimed that 9/11 was an American-led hoax, allegedly used to justify foreign wars.

          Now they want us to trust Iran’s bloody theocracy, and sign a nuclear weapons agreement. That’s as reliable as a nonaggression pact with Nazi Germany. What makes such an agreement necessary is exactly what makes it a suicide pact.
