Finally!!!!

I am so sick of people being cowed by dipshit muslims when a joke is made about that child molesting prophet mohammed.

Comedy Central is staffed by nothing but far-left nutjobs. Just look at their programming.

Hey, why isn't the Slog link working?

Brooke said...

USA: I hope even more outrage and mockery is generated.

Chuck: Honestly, Comedy Central ceased to be funny so long ago I have no idea what they now show.

AOW: I probably did something wrong. I'll look into it and try to fix it here in a bit.

Hey, Brooke, WATCH YOUR BACK! :-)

Always On Watch said...

Aha! The link is working now.

Too bad that I can't draw worth a flip. If I could, I'd enter this contest. You know me: always looking for a fatwah!

I'm going to participate. I'm going to an art supply store specifically for this.

The art should be worked in pig-based oils, IMO.

I think he's right here.

UPDATE:


In declaring May 20th to be "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day," Seattle artist Molly Norris created a poster-like cartoon showing many objects -- from a cup of coffee to a box of pasta to a tomato -- all claiming to be the likeness of Muhammad.

Such depictions are radioactive as many Muslims believe that Islamic teachings forbid showing images of Muhammad.

"I am Mohammed and I taste good," says the pasta box in the cartoon. On top of the cartoon images (but no longer on her website) was an announcement explaining the rationale behind the event.
"In light of the recent veiled (ha!) threats aimed at the creators of the....

...television show South Park (for depicting Mohammed in a bear suit) by bloggers on Revolution Muslim's website, we hereby deemed May 20, 2010 as the first annual "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day," the original artwork reads.

On Friday, Norris told a radio talk show host in Seattle that she came up with the idea because "as a cartoonist, I just felt so much passion about what had happened..." noting that "it's a cartoonist's job to be non-PC."
That passion, it appears, has lessened. And fast.

Her stark website today reads: ""I am NOT involved in "Everybody Draw Mohammd [sic] Day!"

"I made a cartoon that went viral and I am not going with it. Many other folks have used my cartoon to start sites, etc. Please go to them as I am a private person who draws stuff," she writes.

It went viral, however, because she was the one who passed it around. Sending it to people like Dan Savage, a popular Seattle-based blogger and nationally syndicated sex advice columnist.

Once it became a national story she reeled back, asking Savage -- in an email he provided to The Ticket -- if he would "be kind enough to switch out my poster" with another one -- a much tamer version which has no images attributed to Muhammad.

"I am sort of freaked out about my name/image being all over the place," her e-mail reads.

He didn't change it, nor did he post the tamer version. Besides, after Savage posted it, many other sites picked it up including The Atlantic and Reason.
When asked about her change of heart, Norris told The Ticket that she didn't intend for the cartoon "to go viral."

Then why did she send the cartoon to the media in the first place? "Because I'm an idiot," Norris replied.

"This particular cartoon of a 'poster' seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for," she said.

Does that mean Draw Muhammad Day is cancelled?

Brooke said...

Who cares if this cowardly dhimmi won't stick to her guns?

I'm still going to do it!
