You Can’t Circumscribe Resistance – Drawing Mohammed

UPDATE 9:55 PM EST at pink link .

Per Imraan Siddiqi with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR):

“Recently, the mosques here in Phoenix actually received threatening letters — very specific threats, saying that we are going to massacre your congregations,” he said.

Should we consider as credible too, then, the threats from the Muslim community towards those who would draw a Mohammed? Kind of like those two who got culled at Gellers event. Those devout Muslims with guns who were looking to massacre the people attending that private event.  They made threats prior to acting.  Yet we are told over and over that we misunderstand – and that the Muslims don’t mean such threats literally,  they are just desperate to protect their deity from desecration. 

“Ritzheimer anticipates possible problems because of the rally and says people should bring their guns.” “People are also encouraged to utilize (their) second amendment right at this event just (in case) our first amendment comes under the much anticipated attack,” the event’s Facebook page says.Bikers will be there too, according to the post.”

Siddiqi calls it the “intersection of Islamophobia and (the) gun culture.”

“When we see these two things … then obviously it becomes more of a concern,” he said. “We’re advising people … it’s better to stay clear from the event, don’t engage with these people.”

“These people”. Islamophobia. Gun culture.  Now, the motorcycle ridin’, gun totin’, cartoon drawin’ are not reasonable people, it is clear. If they were reasonable they wouldn’t even consider hurting the feelings of Muslims.

Then there is this position from the all inclusive crowd:

They also should know that consequences and responsibility come with those rights.

Consequences eh? Serious ones I imagine? For free speech, the exercise of which is our right, we should fear consequences. Responsibility, as in being responsible for getting your own ass shot or stabbed to death for being a serial cartoon sketcher.  Yeah, like that.

What are the typical consequences of the sort of free speech which some few might find hurtful or offensive?

Why, in a sane world simply that the receiver becomes offended or feels impotent outrage.  That is all.

Now however, American society is turning towards warning the offender that it is they who need to fear, yes fear, dark consequences. Presumably those consequences will be more severe than the offender being outraged or offended in turn – you know, tit for tat.  I am guessing that the consequences they refer to won’t include Muslims holding a Draw Jesus event.

How indeed Mr. Lamont, do you get to define terrorism any old which-a-way?  Remember this ?: screenshot


I do wonder how Mr. Hill views all the Christians slaughtered by Muslims.  Is that Muslims resistance to oppression?  When will the gays murdered by the Muslims have their day?

Only when a bunch of Americans convene at a cartoon contest, “as silly as it sounds”.

This is how WE riot bitches.

You can’t circumscribe resistance Mr. Hill.
