So let me think, I am confused by people being insulted, and to be frank I am insulted myself and this Gordian knot of insults is just confusing.
Let’s try to unravel it.
A while ago an English teacher in Somalia had her class name the class teddy bear. The children decided on ”Mohammed”. All nice and honkydory you would think.
Because calling a teddybear ”Mohammed” is in some bizarre way insulting to muslims, (mohammed is such a popular name in Islam because the prophet had that name) the teacher then was arrested, and the adherents of the religion of peace wanted to chop her head off! For the ”crime” which her students committed! They were the ones who chose the most popular name, Mohammed, for the teddybear! How insanely stupid can you get?
But then Theo van Gogh got shot down in the street by some mentally disturbed insulted muslim because he made a movie about the bad treatment of women in Islam. Which is true, so the insults should be felt. But because of the bad treatment of women in Islam, not because a short movie is pointing them out.
And then we had the Danish newspaper which posted some rather unfunny cartoons about mohammed and of course those artists had to be given the death threats as well for being insulting to muslims.
Because in Islamic countries making fun of Jesus in cartoons is ok, but the rest of the world making a cartoon about Mohammed is insulting!!! And should be punishable by death!
And now ”South Park” has been making an episode where they made fun of all religions, and had all religious inventors featured: Jesus, Buddah, and amongst many others, Mohammed. Now of course they had a problem. They didn’t want to be shot by some cowardly weak-headed religious maniac, for making a cartoon featuring mohammed for that might insult some muslims. And they could not leave him out for various reasons, but I bet that would also have been insulting to some muslims as well. I suppose they could have had him clad in abaya and niqab to hide his face, but I’m sure that would also be insulting to some muslims.
So they chose to have him disguised as a teddybear.
Which turned out to be insulting to some muslims.
The insulted troglodytes adherents of the ”Religion of Peace” went through the trouble to research the addresses of the makers of South Park, post them on the internet, tell everybody how insulting they are and, (of course), call upon other muslims (don’t have the mental derangement guts to do it themselves) to murder the makers of South Park.
As that is the only answer this contingent of Muslims is capable of in their diminished mental capacities.
I am insulted by this infringement of free speech. For sooo many reasons.
Here are three:
- The cartoons about Christianity and Jews printed in Muslim papers beat in tastelessness (and insult potential) everything ever produced in the western world (except by the Nazis). So I don’t see where they think they can gain the right to be insulted by a very few mild and in the case of South Park definitely funny pointers towards their religious adherents (not the founder: this joke is adressed to the insane murderous group of muslims, and maybe the silent majority who stand by and let murder happen in the name of Islam.).
You don’t have the right to be insulted.
- You may, on whatever spurious grounds, curtail freedom of speech, thought and cartoons in your own dominion, but you have no right to dictate what other people do in their own countries. Especially when you are happy to use their freedoms when it suits you.
- When you have reaches a certain age, a certain maturity, (beyond the age of two) you don’t solve disagreements with violence, let alone murdering everybody who disagrees with you.
These minds are of a simplicity, a crudity, a stupidity, a violence which makes me wonder if the earlier hominids have really become extinct… Surely these muslims prove there are pockets in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia etc. where some very early missing link in human evolution apparently still lives, and thrives, and now has managed to find it’s way onto the internet?
And while writing this down I notice how hypocritical all this stupid insultedness and violence is.
Is hypocrisy the cornerstone of Islam?
Have these insulted primitive idiots ever read what their prophet has to say about hypocrisy?
We know they can read, otherwise they would not have been able to put up calls for arbitrary murder on the internet. Pity they don’t use their newly acquired skills to actually read their own religious book.
The first admonition Mohammed and the muslims got from god is the first being ignored.
Ok, I worked it out: the Gordian knot of insults has been unravelled.
Keeping quiet and let a couple of under developed humanids from the land which time forgot dictate what we can or cannot say, what we can or cannot draw, what we can or cannot publish, is not an option.
My religion is freedom.
Freedom of speech, freedom of Art. freedom of publishing, freedom of media, freedom of (or from) religion, freedom, freedom, freedom.
