Everbody Draw Mohammed Day

In case you hadn’t heard about the Islamic censorship of South Park:  Look Here
This is a little late, but I don’t think I have any readers at this point anyway.
And now, for the main attraction (via Reason):

Via Dan Savage’s blog at The Stranger, some clever chappie (I don’t know who) has declared May 20, 2010 “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day,” in support of Matt Stone and Trey Parker and in opposition to religious thuggery. Why May 20? I haven’t a clue, though it could have something to do with Otto ascending the throne of Greece. Or, more likely, King Sancho IV of Castile’s founding of the Study of General Schools of Alcalá.I will be employing my tremendous skill as an illustrator, of course, and expect that my colleagues will do the same. If they refuse, they will be declared weak-kneed, namby-pamby, quisling infidels and will be shamed on this blog (Though such idle threats rarely work these days; perhaps I could threaten them with a painful death, which seems to do the trick). If readers would like to show their solidarity, please email your Mohammad masterpieces to me here: mmoynihan at reason.com. The best ones will be published on Hit & Run, which, along with the concomitant death threat, is reward enough.

Personally, I would never watch South Park.  Especially considering both Jesus and Joseph Smith were featured in the same episode as Mohammad was, and they didn’t get bear suits.  But, even though I don’t support South Park, the temper-tantrum Muslims throw every time an image of Mohammad comes up (even one in a bear suit) is getting sickening.  Especially when the tantrum ends in deaths like Theo van Gogh‘s.

So, I will be drawing my own picture, though I’ll be doing it for Ayaan Hirsi Ali, van Gogh, and the publisher of the Mohammad cartoons.

  1. ITS REALLY SHAME 4 THE ONES WHO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH STUPID EVENT OF DRAWING!!!!!! V MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN ALL THE PROPHETS JESUS, MOSES, JACOB AND ALL. V NEVER EVER EVEN THINK OF SUCH IMPUDENCE FOR ANY!!!!!!!YOU PEOPLE R REALLY CALLING UPON U THE TORMENT OF ALMIGHTY GOD!!!!!!!!!!1

  2. stop this drawing to publish with other v r muslims and believe all prophets

  3. u always complain that u are always been attack by Muslims .. dont do such a thing that can hurt the heart of the people until they suicide but they kill u.. leave in peace and make peace… leave the feeling of Muslims in peace.. all religious are as brother and every thing in the universe is the creation of God.. v should care and respect every body in the world thanks

  4. i just cant believe, how far you ppl go to prove what NOTHING,… leave muslims alone, we believe in all prophets and respect them equally, if you dont like one person for some reason its ur wish but donot include the entire community of muslims in that, we are peaceful nation and leave us alone…. if Jesus were here right now he would have gone to war against you guys who do not respect anyprophet let alone Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him. By drawing or doing all tht crap, what are you getting, making muslims angry and nothing else, everyone has some limitations so does islam, we respect yours, you must respect ours to live in peace.

    • There are quite a few Muslims who don’t respect our limitations. Like the ones who try to kill people every day. Or the ones who issue death threats over a picture. Don’t you think the rules against killing people make a bit more sense than the rule against drawing your prophet? I don’t see any other religion complaining about their prophets being drawn.

      • I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUT I ONLY KNOWS THAT ISLAM IS THE ONLY TRUTH ON THIS WORLD EVEN WE BELIVE OR NOT SO THATS WHY IN ANY CONDITIONS WE WILL PROTECT THIS AND I WILL AD MORE SOMETHING IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DRAW A PIC OF MUHAMMAD peace be upon him DRAW THIS PIC IN YOUR HEARTS AND READ THE BIOGRAPHY AND TEACHINGS OF MUHAMMAD ANS GET KNOWLEDGE OF ISLAM THEN TRY TO DRAW WITHOUT ANY KNOWING ANY THINGS HOW YOU CAN DRAW SOMETHINGS GO READ QURAN AND READ ABOUT MUHAMMAD THEN DRAW THE PIC .I SWEAR AFTER HAVING THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT MUHAMMAD YOU WILL COME IN BRIGHT SIDE AND DEVIL WHICH HAS ACCUPIED YOUR HEARTS WILL RUN OUT .GOD BLESS ALL YOU GUYS .

  5. […] Well, it’s almost here.  The day for what will hopefully be the first of many free speech protests against Islamic […]

  6. GOSH..PPL PLZ GROW UP! i am only 12 and i know that this is not something worth fighting over and i ain’t siding with nobody. every race, religion has GOOD and BAD ppl and we’re all humans at the end of the day. there was never a time in history where there was no conflict among the human race therefore live it with. we all want peace but i doubt it will ever happen.

  7. SHAME ON YOU GUYS WHO DRAW PIC LIKE THIS DONT YOU HAVE MIND LOOK INSIDE OF YOU WHAT YOU YOU ALL ARE UNCEVELISED PPLS

  8. It is rather amusing to see muslims go up in arms over a cartoon over someone who was a child molester and a homosexual. According to all historical information that i have gathered the real mohoammed if he were alive today he would either be executed as a homosexual by most so called muslim governments or jailed in western countries as a child molester. Do i think muslims are equal in tier treatment of anyone other than a muslim? no. Muslims are among the most hypocritical and violent and sociapathic religions today
