Well There Goes “Everybody Draw Calvin Day”

Lord knows how those Presbyterians might react

Marked for death: Artist behind “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” forced to change identity

Remember, after her idea took off online, so frantically worried was she about her offense to jihadis that she apologized for it and distanced herself from any participation. Too late, alas. The lesson: Appeasement after the fact of the insult won’t work. Actually, appeasement before the fact won’t work either. If it did, Terry Jones’s non-burning of the Koran wouldn’t be part of Khamenei’s weekly Two Minutes Hate and it wouldn’t have already been the pretext for a body count in Afghanistan. But then, that’s how self-censorship progresses. Whereas before you were apt to get stabbed for drawing Mohammed cartoons, now you’re apt to get stabbed for suggesting (then retracting) that Mohammed cartoons should be drawn.

When asked for a comment, Justice Breyer said “don’t try hiding behind my robe, biatch.”

  1. Good luck to her, and may she avoid the fate that befell Theo Van Gogh.

    But I seriously doubt she has learned a lesson here.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    I don’t think she has learned a thing, based on this:

    “Norris views the situation with her customary sense of the world’s complexity, and absurdity. ”

    Um, sweet pea, it ain’t “the world’s complexity and absurdity” that is causing the problem here.

  3. Skyler says:

    This is what happens when we appease murderers.

    We should be removing these terrorists from this planet, not quaking in our boots.

  4. JeffS says:

    Lead injections for terrorists. Works for me.

    It really is time to stand up to this bullying by mohammetans. Too many say nothing against this, perhaps they are scared, too. But it’s time to say “No. More.”
