In other words: May 20th is to be recognized as Freedom of Speech Day.
Hot Air wrote yesterday about the story of someone at Dan Savage’s blog starting Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, and how Michael Moynihan at Reason also picked it up. Almost unilaterally, we all seem to agree on what to do after learning of this new day: "Now I feel obliged to help push it out there." Says Allah Pundit:
Cue the predictable media squealing that “you’ll only antagonize them!” Antagonism, actually, is an idea straight out of the Hirsi Ali playbook: Her point to Anderson Cooper in the clip I posted earlier was that only by sharing the risk of retaliation for blasphemy can the public help protect her, Parker, Stone and other insolent infidels. If each threat produces more blasphemers than it silences, then threats suddenly become counterproductive. Or at least, they do to rational minds. (A flaw in the theory?)
BigGovernment.com also discussed why Dan Savage declared May 20th “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day," a day in defense of Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The main reason for having this day is of course in defense of the first amendment of the Constitution. So, hopefully for those bloggers who stumble upon this blog entry and feel inspired to help -- you too can do your part on May 20th, Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!
Do your part to both water down the pool of targets and, of course, defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Comedy Central did not use their God given right to freedom of speech, a right that Americans are guaranteed under the first amendment of the Constitution. Instead, the television network cooperated with terrorists and pulled the episode. This, despite the wishes of Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, to air the original episode which depicts Mohammed in a bear suit.
My thoughts are if other religions are not exempt from such humor or mockery from American television networks, then surely Mohammed in a bear suit is fair game. Rightfully so, too. The countdown is already under way, the question is whether or not everybody will draw Mohammed on May 20th. Would you, fellow bloggers, help defend the first amendment, the Constitution, freedom of speech, and the hilarious Matt Stone and Trey Parker?
