You all know I’m vehemently against any form of censorship, especially when a priest or a sheikh is behind it. For example, I wasn’t much of a Lady Gaga fan, but when priests moved to ban “Born This Way”, I became her number 1 fan, outdoing my gay friends and even burning her CDs to blast on my car stereo.
So, naturally, I’m ecstatic about Mamnou3.com. It’s a web-series that seeks to mockingly portray how Lebanon’s censorship bureau functions. These retards who banned books like “The Da Vinci Code” and many others based on the Maronite church’s recommendation, as well as most things with a reference to Israel in it based on the Hezbollah’s “recommendations”, are getting what they deserve.
It’s a beautiful, hopefully hilarious portrayal of a bitter reality in a country that prides itself on freedom of speech. That’s a cause I believe in deeply, and I will take this opportunity to shamelessly promote myself as an extra on the show, maybe in future seasons. I’d do anything, even just dress up as a tree!
