“The Washington Post” took the publishing world’s fear of Muslim extremism one step further on Sunday by pulling a cartoon about Muhammed in which he does not appear.



By passing up on the rare opportunity for the paper to print a non-abstract, actually funny cartoon, The Washington Post not only enraged bloggers worldwide, it also staunched the only artistic medium that still inspires my generation — comedy.

Wiley Miller’s single panel cartoon imitates the classic children’s book “Where’s Waldo?” by depicting a grassy park teaming with activity—animals frolic, children buy ice cream, adults stroll and sunbathe—and the caption reads: “Where’s Muhammad?”

It’s funny, right?

First, “The Post’s” fears are legitimate. Under FBI direction, Seattle-based cartoonist Molly Norris changed her name and went into hiding this summer after publicly encouraging a worldwide “Everyone Draw Muhammad Day,” in protest after an episode of “South Park” depicting Muhammed was censored last year. “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have received death threats.

Muslim extremists are terrifying, but Miller is still disgusted with his newspaper. The award-winning cartoonist said that it was meant to satirize “the insanity of an entire group of people rioting and putting out a hit list over cartoons.” His anger is justified, but I think he’s missing something by belittling the social role of funny cartoons to make his point.

(I offended by burdensome taxes--think TPTB will cut?). LMAO.

The whole damn Islam is a brainwash joke on mankind. Sensitivity reserved to a "free" press--free to hAve bias in favor of "poor victi
Believers".
