The problem here is that because no innocent people were killed, the media will sweep the “incident” under the rug. If only the terrorists had taken aim at say, looting rioters, maybe it would’ve gotten more traction. The important issue here is that these incidents will never end. Ever. As long as Islam exists, these events will occur. And because of liberals kneeling before their gods of “tolerance,” they will occur with greater frequency.
To Muslims, we are told that we need to be tolerant. That we must respect your Islamic faith. That we can’t judge many by the actions of a few. Here’s the thing: these aren’t the actions of a few. Muslims know this. Drawing Muhammad in any shape or form is a punishable sin in Islam. All of Islam. Period. It is for this reason that the religion deserves no tolerance. Zero. Nada. Zilch.
No other religions demands the subversion of the First Amendment as Islam does.
You can draw Jesus, sure. Even create a play (like “Jesus Christ Superstar”) about him. You can sell statues of Bhudda or Vishnu. Heck, I’m pretty sure you can even purchase illustrated version L. Ron. Hubbard’s science fiction novels (before they became a religion and all). I’ve even got my Tom-Cruise engraved thetan-testing kit. Highly reccomended.
But the second anyone pencils a little picture of Muhammad, everyone’s sphincter puckers tighter than a starfish on a sun-dial. I’m not even talking about actual terrorism (you know, where thousands of people die at the hands of Islamist ever day). But ideological terrorism.
No other religion demands that we play by their rules in the way that Islam does. Rules that are unconstitutional. Rules that by design, are anti-freedom.
Liberals demand that Conservatives stay “out of their uterus” and “out of their bedroom.”How about demanding that Muslims (yes, ALL Muslims) stay out of our scrapbooks, our computer programs, and our pencil cases? Better yet, if you have a problem with our illustrations, how about staying out of our civilized countries? If I want to draw Muhammad, I’ll draw Muhammad. If you don’t like it, go fornicate yourself.
Why? Because you don’t get to tell me what I can draw. I don’t care how much you bully, I don’t care how much you try and intimidate, and I certainly don’t care how angry your imaginary moon-god and his pedophile, war-mongering prophet get.
To those saying that I’m an intolerant jerk… hey, I’m not the one forbidding a damn picture. Intolerance, my ass.
