I will be applying my non-existent artistic skills and will probably produce a stick figure labeled “Mohammed'” so that you’ll know what it is supposed to depict.
Anyone else is welcome to submit their drawings and I will post those, too.
Mark Steyn properly conflates Comedy Central’s cowardice and Bill Clinton’s demonization of tea partiers.
…[I]n the end, in a craven culture, even … the brave, transgressive comedy network was intimidated into caving in and censoring a speech about not being intimidated into caving in. …
Terrific. You can see why young, urban, post-modern Americans under 57 get most of their news from Comedy Central. What a shame 1930s Fascist Europe was so lacking in cable.
Fifteen years ago, Bill Clinton set out to hang Timothy McVeigh around the necks of talk radio and, with a further stretch, Newt and the congressional Republicans. …
Which works fine when you’re up against phantom enemies of the kind Clinton preferred to take on, while giving real threats the run of the planet. If the Tea Partiers were truly the murderous goons they’ve been portrayed as, they would draw the obvious lesson from the kid gloves with which Comedy Central strokes Islam. They would say, “Enough with peaceful rallies where we pick up the litter afterwards. Let’s just threaten to decapitate someone. You get more respect that way. At least from the media.”
If one had the time to do the searching and analysis, it seems very likely that the tea parties have garnered more negative North American press and more negative Democrat comment – since February 2009, than have Islamists in plain view – since September 2001. Thuggish organizations like Iran, Syria and CAIR, as well as demented individuals like Anwar al-Awlaki, the imam who mentored the man who perpetrated the Fort Hood massacre as well as three of the 9/11 hijackers, and now this idiot with the death threats against the creators of South Park – get a pass (it’s America’s fault) while Clinton, the Obama Apparatus and our MSM are vilifying Americans who disagree with the expansion of government.
