Dean Obeidallah’s Silly Worries

Dean Obeidallah is worried that Anthony Weiner’s recent sex scandal will reflect badly on Dean. Addressing Weiner, Dean recently wrote in the Huffington Post:

Your cheating is not just hurting your family, your careers and your country, it’s hurting me. How? Because you’re making it impossible for me to convince my girlfriend that all men aren’t cheaters.

Actually, Dean, your work for the State Department reflects far worse on you than Weiner’s behavior. Weiner probably doesn’t know or care about you, so the connection between Weiner’s behavior and your image is weak. But you deliberately chose to ignore all the US’s reprehensible foreign policy to enhance your own career, which has a greater influence on your image.

Your collaboration with the murderous US empire is not just hurting your image and your moral standing, it’s hurting all of us because you’re making it impossible for us to convince people under US occupation that not all Arabs in America are opportunists and careerists who don’t mind collaborating with their annihilators.

    “Your cheating is not just hurting your family, your careers and your
    country, it’s hurting me. How? Because you’re making it impossible for
    me to convince my girlfriend that all men aren’t cheaters.”

    Weiner isn’t just a cheater (because that’s  normal) , he is a  koodie. The normal person runs away from the likes of Weiner. He’s creepy. Why does Obeidallah go out of his way not only to play that down but  to idenity with him as a man as in “you’re making us all look bad?”  As if they are equals in the food chain, even.  Maybe  Obeidallah is taking the  opportunity to be “upitty.”

    “Dean Obeidallah probably doesn’t know you or care about you, so the connection between Obeidallah’s job and your image is weak.”

    See how that can be turned? Truth be told, no one cares about Obeidallah and as far as most Arabs are concerned, he’s not even funny so he can do what he wants. You can’t rag on the guy after an article riddled with loads of his bad jokes; that’s just kicking the man while he’s down. The dude’s not funny so he’ll exploit one-half of his ethnicity to get paid; if he’s going to do that, that’s his business. But no one is really going to pay attention to a government comedy show, and the government knows that. That’s why they’re not really bragging too much about this. 

    He’s unfunny, and I mean really unfunny, but he hasn’t done anything negative. Disappointed with this article.

      Hi Guest, 

      Can you tell us a little more about the “government comedy show” ?  We believe his “comedy” tour in the Arab world is sponsored by a government agency but have not verified it?  Appreciate any information you might have.
