    And that's the same right that Muslims have when it comes to magazines, TV shows, newspapers, radio programs, .....

    Boycott. Don't murder.
    Turn it off. Don't buy it. Don't look at it. Protest with your wallet and your feet, not with a gun, knife, or suicide vest.

    Think about it. If every single person/business/group/corporation with a facebook page, instagram, snap chat, blog, forum, and web page spent a week posting nothing but pictures of Muhammed would it make a statement?

    If every single non-muslim with the means to "protest" in this way banded together and posted pictures, it would number in the billions.

    Would it make any kind of difference? Would it resonate with the Muslim world at all?

    A world-wide grass-roots movement to collectively say "we're not going to submit to terrorist threats" and "we fully support the freedom of speech and freedom of the press/media". Would you participate?

    Is it time for every single non-Muslim to post a cartoon/drawing of Muhammed in a collective gesture of support, and defiance against violence
    ?


    Not going to happen.

    Some people on this planet have other things to do with their time.

    Flooding, as in provoking, no. Exercising our 1st Amendment rights when the topic of Muhammad comes up, absolutely. We must treasure the right to speak freely and not let anyone dictate what we can or cannot say. That includes speaking for or against any topic.
    We have become hypersensitive to the point that we have to carefully weigh our every word. Religious extremism, hate speech, racism, homophobia, sexual harassment...where does it stop?

    I'd like for it to have stopped before I had to abandon the word "niggardly" because there were so many ignorant people who were unfamiliar with it.
