6 thoughts on “More on “Everyone Draw Muhammad Day”

  1. Is it just me, or is James Cameron’s Na’vi from the movie Avatar responsible for torturing Mohammed in this early renaissance fresco?

  2. I’m still struggling going along with you on this one. I think it’s unfair to blame them for Youtube’s lost business because Pakistan decided to ban the site because of something like this. This is a clear overreaction on their part, and I still feel compelled to support at least the idea of Draw Muhammad Day. Even if the terrorists do kill the progenitor of Draw Muhammad Day, why is that the fault of people who refused to be intimidated? It would be tragic, but then we should demonstrate that won’t be tolerated and bring them to swift justice.

    My brother loves to quote Bill Clinton, saying, “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be changed by what is right with America.” For us, the First Amendment is a huge part of that. I think you said before the first time the Muhammad thing came up that we must actually fight for our rights, and if we don’t use them when they are under attack, they never existed in the first place.

    I’m really torn on this one. I find the musings of Thunderf00t on Youtube to be quite powerful, if polemic. Maybe he counts as unethical, too. He’s the kind of militant atheist that normally repulses me.

    I dunno… I still have two hours to draw Muhammad Ali…

    • I don’t blame them for YouTube’s lost business. I was just pointing out that, as I have been predicting, the exercise has negative results and no positive ones to justify intentionally insulting millions of Muslims who had nothing to do with threatening “South Park.” Being indignant is swell, but running out into the street with a shot-gun is not a responsible response.

      • But what other way could we demonstrate so clearly that we wouldn’t be intimidated and that attempts to force their rules on others would fail?

        (I didn’t end up drawing Muhammad last night. I was playing Plants Vs. Zombies…)
