That’ll spin the Musulman’s turban
Actually the idea is so stunning in its simplicity. As the situation presently stands, only a few cartoonists have dared to tread where many fear to go, and are easily lined up in the jihadis’ crosshairs. Kurt Westergard, Lars Vilks, even Finnish filth blogger Seppo Lehto has dared to draw the desert madman, but up until now, no one else had the grand idea to encourage the free wold (and those who long to join it) to have an international day for the drawing of Mohamed’s likeness. Brilliant! KGS
NOTE: I believe that the International Civil Liberties Alliance is going to put that day on its calendar, as it should, so stay tuned in folks, the Tundra Tabloids encourages all of its readers to send in your own drawings here to the TT, and they will be posted on the 20th of May.
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.”Listen to Molly Norris on Dave Ross 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.Norris has asked other artists to submit drawings of any religious figure to be posted as part of Citizens Against Citizens Against Humor (CACAH) on May 20th.On her website Norris explains this is not meant to disrespect any religion, but rather meant to protect people’s right to express themselves.
