Greg Gutfeld: ‘WaPo’ Pulls Muhammad Cartoon That Doesn’t Show Muhammad
It is either another example of either base cowardice and hypocrisy that is rampant among American media people, or one of the few cases of true Islamophobia that exist.
Whichever it is, this comment from the editor who apparently wets himself when he even gazes upon the almighty name of Muhammed in print, is particularly disgusting. He must think the world is inhabited by idiots.
Admirably, Post ombudsman Andrew Alexander asked his Style editor why- and he said, “it seemed a deliberate provocation without a clear message.” He added that “the point of the joke was not immediately clear.”The very fact that he pulled the cartoon is clear evidence that he did get its point. Which is why his cowardice or Islamophobia wouldn't let him print it.
Oh.... and just in case you don't want to click on that link, here's the horrible cartoon that was too offensive (yet utterly obscure in its meaning) to print in the "Washington Post":
Makes me even more content and comfortable with the concept of Mohammed Mondays. I'm more convinced than ever that I'm not going too far. In fact, I may not be going far enough. Maybe keeping out the pigs and the scatological humor was a bad call.
