Al Opus, Fatwah on You

Opus cartoon, banned by the Mass Media for making fun of Jihadists. So much for freedom of speech… The Mass Media has bent to the will of Allah again. I guess they are afraid of more riots and fatwahs. but yet it is ok to publish lies about our troops. The Mass Media needs to go back to its roots and re-discover what they are their for. A cartoon obvious meant as satire is unacceptable, however a editorial piece from a liberal “news” agency that has no hint of satire, calling for the overthrow of the US government is more than accepted in the media’s watchful eyes. BS.

Update: More dhimmi details in FoxNews.com’s coverage.

If you haven’t already been to Berkeley Breathed’s website to see the first of two syndicated “Opus” cartoons that many of his newspaper clients are refusing to run because they might offend members of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage, go there now. Many blogs noted this story last week while I was traveling. See HA for full background.

The LATimes, surprisingly, ran the cartoon yesterday, according to LAObserved.

According to Breathed’s syndicated, some 25 newspapers refused to run the strips.

Let’s have the names, shall we? If your paper regularly carried Opus, but didn’t run yesterday’s strip, speak now.

Reader Bob e-mails: “Add the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to the dhimmi column, they ran a different Opus strip yesterday.”

Reader Scott: “Add Dallas Morning News to those who do not wish to offend.”
