    Seattle cartoonist launches "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day"

    Seattle cartoonist launches "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day"

    Excerpt: After Comedy Central cut a portion of a South Park episode following a death threat from a radical Muslim group, Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris wanted to counter the fear. She has declared May 20th "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day."
    Norris told KIRO Radio's Dave Ross that cartoonists are meant to challenge the lines of political correctness. "That's a cartoonist's job, to be non-PC."

    Producers of South Park said Thursday that Comedy Central removed a speech about intimidation and fear from their show after a radical Muslim group warned that they could be killed for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.
    The group said it wasn't threatening South Park producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, but it included a gruesome picture of Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker killed by a Muslim extremist in 2004, and said the producers could meet the same fate. The website posted the addresses of Comedy Central's New York office and the California production studio where South Park is made.
    "As a cartoonist I just felt so much passion about what had happened I wanted to kind of counter Comedy Central's message they sent about feeling afraid," Norris said.

    You can't win. If you fight Parker and Stone, they become more powerful.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I'm all for freedom of speech and I won't say they shouldn't do this or not be allowed to do this. But doing something just to piss some people off is still kind of a dick move in my eyes. And at the very least not productive

    Yeah you are probably right. Christians and Catholics are safe for satire ad nauseam decade after decade, but.............

    You are a decade or so too late, both "urine" Christ and "fecal" Christ already dawned.

    Cartoons are the lowest form of comedy. One notch bellow Carrot-Top.

    As has drawing Mohammed.. been done for the last 1500 years in and out of the Muslim world. This is nothing but reactionary crap from both sides. On the muslim side it is to gain more political traction against the "enemies" of whoever is trying to get political power, and in the west it is nothing more in the never ending "our religion is superior to yours" crap being propagated by the Christian church and its supporters.

    In the end it is all a load of crap.

    I understand her motivation - freedom of ideas and freedom of the press - and I embrace these freedoms. But I also think that sinking to this level is rude, crude, unnecessary, and counterproductive. Islamophobia is just as ugly as anti-Semitism.

    Where are you coming up with this stuff? This fantasy of "our religion is superior to yours" in the cartoonists who drew Mohammad in Europe....where was that message anywhere in those drawings?

    You are just making up reactions to satisfy your liberal thought process when no one else has made those conclusions except for the Islamic terrorists themselves.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
