Dhimmedia: Newspapers Refuse Cartoon that References Muhammad. More Self Imposed Sharia
Pamela Geller | Atlas Shrugs
More media capitulation to Islamic supremacism, as explained here. I understand their fear, but my question to all of these cowards is, isn’t the alternative more frightening? Isn’t the ascension of sharia and blasphemy laws more frightening than publishing a silly toon? Isn’t the silencing of free men a scarier prospect than the whole of the global jihad?
Isn’t freedom worth fighting for? Worth dying for? How dare they so casually relinquish that which our fathers, grandfathers and founding fathers fought so hard and died for.
Someone said that if you trade freedom for peace you get neither — or something along those lines. True that.
Editors Pass on Comic Strip With ‘Where’s Muhammad?’ Reference Editor and
Some editors opted not to run Sunday’s “Non Sequitur” comic strip, which included a “Where’s Muhammad?” reference, according to The Washington Post’s “Comic Riffs” blog.
Wayne Miller’s strip on Sunday depicted a scene in a park with a variety of characters, with the caption, “Picture book title voted least likely to ever find a publisher: ‘Where’s Muhammad?’”
Some 20 papers, including the Portland Press Herald and the Boston Globe — both of which “Non Sequitur” Wiley Miller reads — opted to run a Sunday replacement strip featuring the recurring character Obvious-Man. “Non Sequitur” is syndicated by Universal UClick.
The Washington Post ran the strip online Sunday, but not in its print edition.
Miller told Comic Riffs, “I have absolutely no information on why any of the editors chose not to run it. All I can do is surmise that the irony of their being afraid to run a cartoon that satirizes media’s knee-jerk reaction to anything involving Islam bounced right of their foreheads. So what they’ve actually accomplished is, sadly, [to] validate the point.”
“Non Sequitur,” which bowed in 1991, has won National Cartoonists Society division awards for Best Comic Strip and Best Comic Panel.
The irony of the cartoon’s message should not get lost on anyone.
UPDATE: The quislings at the Washington Post are pretending to be staunch defenders of free speech, but they took the cowards way out. They ran the toon online, but not in print. lol. You can’t make this stuff up. Here’s their take:
Depending on what newspaper you take, you may or may not see today’s “Non Sequitur” comic that’s captioned, in part, “…Where’s Muhammad?”
Some newspapers chose instead to run a Sunday replacement strip featuring the recurring character Obvious-Man. So what was the editorial thinking behind the choice?
The Washington Post chose to run the “Where’s Muhammad?” comic in its online edition but not in its Sunday print funnies, running an “Obvious-Man” replacement. Spokeswoman Kris Coratti said The Post had no comment on that decision.
