    but the only acceptable response would be a protest outside the event, maybe some lawsuits or whatever...

    Violence is not an acceptable response
    We're dealing with yahoos who believe that the only "acceptable response" is through IEDs or automatic weapons, all in the name of a religion that's stuck in the Dark Ages.

    Interesting how liberals are always spouting about tolerance of other points of view and then turn around and support these radical Muslims.....who Don't practice tolerance of anyone.



    libs are often confused in their convoluted thinking.

    I still think they need to erect a Strip Joint, that serves alcohol, with lots of photos, directly across from every Mosque!
    Apparently to liberals we have free speech but we have to pay the consequences, like having someone try to shoot us

    They should take this into consideration: **** with us at your own risk.

    No the cause is the combination of the cartoons and the radical freaks who held the event. The cartoons would not be there if it had not been for the event and the even was only there because of this bitch and her followers wanting to provoke the radicals.

    I agree. There is no room for that kind of provocation! I demand immediately that the Jon Stewart show , MSNBC , the Huffington Post and Bill Maher and other similar dopey liberal freaks immediateley cease operations because all they are doing is provoking the tea party.

    ( Hopefully that example will show you how ridiculous you sound)

    I gather this was an exhibit of artwork that depicts Muhammad, a la Charlie Hebdo, in defiance of radical Muslims and in affirmation of freedom of speech.

    Two guys drove up armed with guns and explosives, opened fire, and were killed straight away by return fire.

    It's a bad idea to go gunning for any group of Texans without a lot of firepower.
    I've no issue with the content of the post except that 'art' wasn't any part of the equation. Polemics, yes. Controversy, yes. Provocation, yes. Art? Absolutely not.

    But that's fine. You don't have to be engaging in fine art to not be a target for intolerant bigotry. In fact, you can be engaging in intolerant bigotry (as were Geller/De Wilde et al) and still not merit murderous attention.

    So it's all Gellar's group's fault.
