Americans overwhelmingly support Muhammad cartoonists’ right to offend #Garlandshooting

“Combining an offensive religious stereotype accurate depiction of Islam with a vigorous defense of the First Amendment’s right to freedom of expression, Fawstin’s cartoon neatly sums up what’s at stake in debates over cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that have flared up periodically over the past ten years.

Following incidents like the Garland shooting, Americans tend to come down overwhelmingly in favor of free expression. For instance, a January Pew Research Center survey found that among Americans who had heard about the Charlie Hebdo attacks, 60 percent said it was okay for the magazine to publish the cartoons, compared to only 28 percent of confirmed assholes who said it wasn’t okay.”

Note the pic above was drawn by Muslims who felt the original Jyllands-Posten Motoon’s weren’t offensive enough to stoke Mohammedan rage.

    Bosch Fawstin has a blog where he posts his work. I’m glad he won as his cartoon drawing was very well done and the message simple and direct. See his work at:

    ‘ Most interestingly, among age groups Millennials were the least likely to support publishing the cartoons.’

    ‘most interestingly’ ??
    NO surprise there.

    Those folks have been raised on a steady diet of ‘everyone is wonderful and all cultures have to be respected’.

    I’d only find it interesting if the Millenials supported printing the cartoons.

    Defending our freedom of expression is not intended to offend Muslims, but help to CHANGE THEIR MINDS.
    What is wrong with a creed that makes EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM into a VIGILANTE MURDERER for the sake of a cartoon?
    Muslims, shake your heads! Is something rattling? Is a screw loose?
