Drawing Mohammed – Is It About Fun Or Free Speech?

I am posting this as a counter to the “Islam Is No Fun” post. It is worth the read.

Why ‘Draw Mohammed’? The Artist Explains

Fawstin is the award-winning cartoonist thrust into international notoriety in May when he won a “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas — a contest that became the first terrorist target of the Islamic State on American soil.


In that vein, priority No. 1 has been pressuring the United States and its Western allies to stifle free expression, to supplant our free marketplace of ideas with Islam’s repressive blasphemy standards. This imperative has received a major boost from the Obama administration: from the president, who is sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment, and also from his former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who would like to be the next to make a mockery of that solemn oath. Colluding with the Brotherhood and the OIC, Obama and Clinton sponsored United Nations Human Rights Resolution 16-18: a blatantly unconstitutional provision that calls on all member states to ban speech that could “incite” not just violence but “hostility” to Islam.

While fun and satirical humor are up front, the larger issue is the principle of free speech.

  1. It is freedom of speech, anyone who disagrees is regrettably moving to the point of being influenced by sharia blasphemy lass
