The ugly smell of censorship has made its presence known. Muslims have demanded that cartoon drawings of Mohammad not be published in any form and many have died in their efforts to censor all who would dare to publish them.

Ironically, a fresco of Mohammad was sculpted on the facade of the US Supreme Court building as one of the world’s great law givers...and we haven’t heard one peep out of the wild-eyed Muslims over that and it’s been there since October 1932. Mohammad is even holding a sword.

To my great surprise, the French satirical weekly “Charlie Hebdo” published a cover cartoon of its own of Mohammad with his face in his hands and the comment “It’s hard to be loved by fools” along with all 12 cartoons that were first printed in Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten.

A french Court rejected efforts by Muslim organizations to prevent their publication but were rejected by a French court. Maybe there is some value in French arrogance after all.

“Charlie Hebdo” editor Philippe Val wrote in the accompanying editorial: "When extremists extract concessions from democracies on points of principle, either by blackmail or terror, democracies do not have long left." Well said!

Such is the case with the extreme leftist Blog “Bring It On” which has censored me off their blog because they didn’t “like my personality.” They’re just like the censoring Muslims. But they don’t consider their censorship, censorship because they don’t like me, which makes it OK. It’s the very definition of censorship hypocrisy.

The truth is “Bring It On's” Cranky Liberal, Dr. Forbush, The Basturd, Pia Savage, Muligan, Christ in Idaho, Jet, Tom Harper, MoxieGrrrl, Jersey McJones, JoeSnitty and Bob Geiger are censoring cowards.

I'm sorry but I feel that any religion has no business going to another country and try to impose their beliefs on them.
How far does freedom of speech go? Only when it right for some and wrong for others?
If you live in a democracy well then expect everything. After all look what was said to the president at a funeral no less.

Tos, you have nothing to be sorry about. You're absolutely right. Religion of any brand doesn't have the right to dictate policy of a country...especially a democratically elected government.

Considering the horrendous cartoons Arab media outlets publish of Jewish and Christian religions, it is terminal hypocrisy, on the scale of fiberals. Then to kill people over it, is absurd. NG
