An interesting comment by Mike Baron

A few weeks ago, Baron said the following about Rid Ahmed, a British performer who's an Islamic adherent (and appeared last year in Star Wars: Rogue One), possibly in response to some bizarre victimology the actor came up with, more on which anon:

Fascinating. I'm guessing Baron said this because Ahmed claimed the lack of "diversity" on TV could lead Islamists to join ISIS. Needless to say, Ahmed's falsehoods were offensive and victim-blaming, and doesn't solve the problems at all. If that's what he thinks, then Baron's got a great idea: Ahmed would make a great choice to play villains. As for his role in the Star Wars entry, it'll have to be viewed with a grain of salt, unfortunately.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
