Everybody Draw Mohammed Day: May 20th
It is times like these that I wish I can draw something better than a stick figure (Via Hot Air):
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.
Hell, I still might just do a stick figure of Mohammad. As an Atheist, I am all about religious blasphemy.
Just joking about the blasphemy thing people, but I’m willing to stick to it to anyone who shuts down speech of any kind for any reason. I think you are allow to make fun of anything you want. If you’re wrong or go too far, then I will call you out and that is my First Amendment right.
As you can tell, I am very supportive of Matt Stone and Trey Parker. I’m almost tempted to call for a boycott of Comedy Central, but (like Glenn Beck) I don’t really believe boycotts work. Instead, pass the word on “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” and, even if you can’t draw, take part in the show of solidarity for your right to offend anyone you want!
