Well, yesterday was the big day....Everyone Draw Muhammad Day. And, as I do, I scoured the internet to see what was going on and what people were saying. You know, I was rather surprised. There actually WAS some good debate. And frankly SOME of the pictures were actually very well done and...*gasp*, even somewhat respectful. The majority, however, were just insanely stupid, horribly racist, and disgustingly bigoted. So were many comments left around the internet. Here is just a sampling, copied and pasted directly as they appeared on their original sites:
"***** Mohammed! This is a free country!!!!! and, I will say what I want. Censor South Park? Are you kidding me???????? This is going way to far!!!!"
Notice the stars? Ya...whatever word was there, and I presume it was fuck, was censored (not by me).
"Hahaha, I love it. Say, egc52556, were you not aware that almost EVERYTHING "sticks a finger in the eye of Muslims"? It's not like a cartoons of Mohammed can be stopped. I mean why not? the whole demeanor of the guy, the history of his antics, literally begs to be made a cartoon of, marrying a 9 year old, calling for the murder of Jews behind every rock, "No pictures of me", as if he was hiding from the "paparazzi" of the day, and then there's his promise of the "12 virgins", are you kidding me? this is a religion?. Let's hope Muslims finally get over themselves, if not, well maybe the rest of the civilized world will finally get it that Islam is a whackjob religion, as bad if not worse than Catholicism."
"Can you be a good Muslim and a good American? I doubt it."
"I'm sick of the Muslims getting preferential treatment....ooooo comedians can't mock you, but everyone else is open game."
I will now refer you to my previous posting on this blog.
"Welcome to America, stand up and take it, or LEAVE, it is that simple...take your extremest friends and go back to whatever country you came from....that is the essence of what we call "freedom of speech"."
"If anything happens to the creators of South Park, the world should go after all muslims...I'm sorry if you can't keep your extremest representatives in line, than all should pay the price..."
"Mohammed was a murderer, child molester, rapist, thief and liar, among his more notable achievements. He should be cartooned as a pig, a snake, some pestiferous vermin. He is, at present, undoubtedly much more concerned with the agonies he is suffering in Hell than with verbal or written insults. Islam is a religion of ignorance. Who in his right mind would follow a mohammedlike varmint anywhere, except to shoot it and claim the bounty?"
"The hysterical vapid extremists will scream no matter what. Let the cartoons begin."
"I think I'll draw Mohammed tomrrow... maybe I'll use some bacon as the medium."
"I think they are foolish for even suggesting they would kill anyone who drew their "god". Why? I know two things for fact. First, there are only 55,000 cops in Canada. Second, their are 33,000,000 Canadians, of which 3,700,000 are like me, a hunter; with lots of guns with scopes. You decide for yourself if killing one infidel is worth the fall out. Just a little food for thought."
"Good on you Molly Norris. Reveal through art the Muslim goat shagging wankers following the delusional ravings of yet another pediophile from a dark age. My check is in the mail."
"pbuh stands for poopy be upon him"
"I figure if the savages ever do take over, I’ll just keep my head down and continue on pretty much as I do now. It’s the gays, ecofreaks, multiculti demanders and vociferous atheists who are going to discover how the brave new world really works."
Oh GOOD, not only going after Muslims, but also adding in some gay bashing, and general hate against liberals.
"Generations of culturally proscribed first-cousin marriages have not served them well. It's like 'Deliverance', but with nuclear weapons instead of banjos. This will not end well."
"I’d draw something to show my support, but I’m not really sure I could draw a pedophile sodomite without violating some site more."
"Draw his head on a pig’s body. That will get the IslamoFascists riled up."
"Filthy ragheads should be burned for the way they think"
Isn't that sort of a veiled threat?? Isn't this what the whole day was AGAINST??
"those people can kiss my ****. go bleed all over something else liberal scum. muahahaha"
Wow, and it comes back to us darn liberals once again.
"Screw Islam. Oh, and here is a txt pic of Muhammad:
It's a pig faced Muhammad...get it?!?! Turn your head to the left...
Mulsims: Take that!!!
Rest of the world: You are welcome!!!"
"i submit that it is worth drawing muhammad ******* a pig while eating bacon and drinking vodka while watching middle eastern burka ****, LOOK OUT they're showing their wrists! what ***** "
"The beast that Islam has become will be defanged and declawed!"
yo champs...islam *****.....get real go fish...also have a BBG sandwich ******* delicious.
"They are the scum of the earth. But I'm not the least bit surprised that Christians are running to their defense, after all, they share the same vulnerabilities and expect us to respect their bronze-age myths."
"Islam means submission. Islam and Western Civilization are incompatible.
The time is fast approaching to decide if we will submit or fight."
"I have no respect for mooselimbs."
"Next time you read someone writing that pbuh crap, try substituting the onomatopoeia for spit in your mind. It makes it more palatable."
"In the words of the cave dwellers: “Let it be so.”"
"After saying “Mohammed”, I sometimes add “PBUH”. The “P” stands for a word that sounds similar to “peace”, but has a completely different meaning."
"Bees Piss Upon Him."
"Those with talent please draw the cartoons-mine is but a stick figure (with a goat)- and enjoy. But draw a bead on the American Leftist, traitor and Dhimmitude and show courage to our weaker brothers that they can rise to the challenge. When Mohamed and his demon worshiping hords swarmed out of the desert they swept MOST everyone out their way but only MOST. On every front the moon god ran into strong opposition from great leaders who stopped them-sometimes permanantly sometimes only for awhile. But they were often stopped.Now we need to roll them back, first sweeping the American Traitors, Dhimmitude and such out of the way. Draw a bead.
What is this even about??? I also love the persons posting signature:
"Let your sidearm be like Master Card:
Don’t Leave home without it."
"Come on, if the KKK is protected under the first amendment then stupid-ass Mohammed is *definitely* fair game."
"I wrote to the Muslim Terrorist living in our white house and told him that his silly little allah is nothing more than a figment of someone's imagination. I told him that when he will stand before the only true God, (it is written that every human being will be required to do this), his silly little allah won't be there to help him. The blood dripping from his hands for all of the innocent murdered babies will be one topic God will take up with him. What a lonely, anguished spot he will be in."
Well, there you have it! Another successful day of promoting widespread Muslim bashing (and, of course, liberal bashing). So, was the day a success? Well, like I said, there was some good debate. A suprising number of comments I read on blogs and news stories were from people who didn't support the drawing of Muhammad as a protest, a sentiment I agree with. And, there was a good number of people who made very civil, very well worded posts of support for the protest.
Apparently, this is going to be an annual event. Great. We get to revisit all of this in a year! Oh GAWD!
