    American taxpayers are funding a grant of $1.25 million to create a cartoon superhero for Pakistan television. A government agency most of us never heard of, International Narcotics and Law Enforcement affairs (INL) issued a grant for two seasons, a total of 26 episodes, running around 11 minutes each of an animated cartoon to “promote security and stability” in Pakistan. The plan is to offer an animated superhero to feed Pakistani people aged 14-25 “social messaging that reinforces INL goals”. This cartoon character will communicate helpful messages about gender equality, anti-corruption and the role of police in society.

    The Obama administration seems to have great faith in the power of video.


    Presumably the cartoon series will be along different lines than this Pakistani related bit of cartooning.

    Who will this animated hero be? The grant doesn’t specify. Cultural influences effect young people’s choice of heroes. One such influence might be the recent act by some 50 Imams in Lahore, a main culture center in Pakistan. These Imams have sanctioned transgender marriage, providing the participants look like the gender they claim to be. This group also said, “any act intended to ‘humiliate, insult or tease’ transgender individuals should be considered a crime under Islam.”

    Maybe the cartoon character that will lecture Pakistani youth on women’s empowerment and religious tolerance will look like Bruce Jenner. Wait. He’s an American hero. Or he was, now she is, or something. Well, surely with 1.25 million dollars, the people doing the films will figure it out.

    You have to wonder. Why is the American taxpayer funding grants to make animated features for Pakistanis? Sure, it sounds like a good cause. Who isn’t for encouraging young people not to take drugs, not break the law and stuff like that? However, we hear so much talk about how Americans keep sticking their noses into other countries’ business. We are arrogant and bossy. Isn’t this cartoon just more of that sort of audacious behavior?

    Really, why are we spending over a million dollars on an animated cartoon for a dubious ally? Aren’t we already giving the Pakistan government enough money in “aid”? Do we need to spend another million and a quarter on cartoons?

    And how many other government agencies we never heard of, are giving away millions of dollars for things, that if they asked our permission to spend our money on, we’d probably say no?

    The empowering women part is good. How do we take them off the planet if they keep breeding?
