More Prophet Muhammad Cartoon Madness

12 05 2010

NOTE: I’ve updated this post to add even more pictures of the Prophet Muhammadcafter the horrific attacks against Charlie Hebdo. I promise I’ll continue to accumulate and display as many pictures as I can find every time any of these psychopathic extremist cowards attack anyone who would draw a picture of their imaginary friend. You’re welcome.

So once again Muslims have lost all sense of rational thought and gone berzerk.

Yesterday the Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who sparked controversy by drawing the Prophet Mohammed on the body of a dog, was attacked. Here’s the video.

Here are is the image that Lars drew that made these devout followers of the “religion of peace” come unhinged.

Now I can understand a newspaper editor somewhere being upset that the cartoon is poorly drawn and as funny as The Family Circus, but how is that rubbish worth even getting a little upset over?

I mean compared to some of the other choice pictures of the Prophet Muhammad I think this one is barely distinguishable and therefore a pretty weak bit of chicken scratch to be getting all worked up over don’t you think?

Now these other pictures…well I can totally understand wanting to go berserk over these.

Here’s the ironic part, as far as I know the Quran itself does not explicitly forbid images of Muhammad.  Seriously, go look it up.  There are a few supplemental hadith that have been written that explicitly prohibit Muslims from creating visual depictions of religious figures (including Muhammad) but since I’m not a Muslim I’m pretty sure I’m not even breaking those rules.

But this isn’t about the rules.  This isn’t even about a paradoxical god who is apparently omnipotent enough to know that I re-posted these pictures but too impotent to do anything about it himself.  No, this is about religious leaders getting their followers offended and incensed over nonsense slights in an attempt to misdirect the conversation away from the corruption of the leaders and the implausibility of their religion.  All religions do this to one degree or another, it’s just that many Islamic leaders go way too far and goad their followers to murder.

I personally suspect that 99.9999% of Muslims would not even contemplate killing someone who drew (or displayed) these cartoons on the Internet.  If that’s true then the only people I’m offending are the .0001% of Muslims who are irrational fanatical zealots who frankly should be mocked and ridiculed for holding such ridiculous beliefs. So mock and ridicule I shall.

By remaining silent in the face of such absurdity is to concede to their madness, and I will not.  In doing so I hope to plant a seed of doubt in the believer’s mind that maybe all all these “truths” are simply ridiculous old stories which have no basis in reality and should be ignored.

It probably won’t work, but I somehow feel the need to at least try.

I think there is one spot in this you’ll have to watch out for that is slightly offensive (in case you’re at work).  I’m just saying.

Aside from that, I’m totally down with the sentiment expressed here.  100% and then some.





Glenn Beck’s Astonishingly Talented Ass

15 08 2009

As if we needed more proof that Beck is a disingenuous concern troll willing to spread disinformation, hate, and fear for the right wing. I take in shows like Beck and Limbaugh’s on occasion to see the ads and to make sure that those companies never get any of my money.

Hey Michael Savage…

…remind me again if it’s still “free speech” if you’re inciting and implicitly advocating violence against other individuals.

Hey Mike, you’re a hate mongering coward who can’t handle a little sunlight being cast upon your words of ignorance and bigotry.

Seriously, fuck you man.  How about you man up and take responsibility for the bullshit you spew rather than encouraging the mentally unstable fuckwits you call your loyal listeners to target innocent people with acts of violence?





Anti-Evolution Texas BOE May Get Neutered

21 05 2009

In a remarkable triumph for actual thinking Texans the embarrassing circus that is the Texas Board of Education may get many of their powers revoked.  After a long history of inept decisions and the recent “science standards” debacle the Texas legislature has introduced no fewer than six bills that would reduce the state board of education’s power.

Provisions being debated right now include stripping the Texas board of its authority to set curricula and approve textbooks, instead transferring those powers either to the Texas Commissioner of Education, the state education agency, or a legislative board.

Other provisions would transform the entire board to an appointed rather than elected body, require Webcasting of meetings, and take away the board’s control of school funding.

Good luck with that.  Seriously.
