    Yes, he is. The cartoonists, not so much.

    No reasonable person would suggest such a thing.
    Liberals across America are claiming exactly that, they're blaming the victims

    That said, being attacked does not validate stupidity, which I think drawing mocking pictures of the leading figure from a major religion which has violent radical followers...qualifies as.


    At the least it qualifies as a somewhat asshole move.


    Edit: tl;dr: Being stupid doesn't deserve violence, but violence doesn't make stupid...smart.
    Where were liberals when Christians tried to get government funding cut for alleged art that defamed Christianity?

    One is doing something to deliberately incite anger and hatred and the other isn't. Like I said, not even close.

    I haven't heard of this happening at all.

    Granted I don't watch the news...but you'd think it would leak into other media.

    who cares? When someone tries to restrain speech just because it offends them, they are wrong to do so.

    The Christians in that case, and the attackers in this case.

    There you have it. Thus my criticism of their very provocative and childish choice of manor in which to flex their free speech muscle.

    Just read this thread

    Good job. You somehow find moral equivalence between Christians and the ISIS attackers. You gotta love liberal thought processes

    You think that women wearing short skirts is anlogous to those inciting anger from radical Muslims and you think that this somehow reflects poorly on how I view women in short skirts? You analogy and your thought process is ridiculous sophomoric.

    I don't generally walk up to anyone and call them anything... but if I were to do so, a violent assault as a reaction would be unjustified and illegal.

    legally speaking , the whole free speech thing is NOT a bunch of bull****.... one can argue that "can" doesn't mean "should" , but that's primarily a moral argument, not a legal argument.
