Political Cartoon Examples
Stott Harmston was interested in legal issues as well as political cartoons
(and other art about Islam) that can end up getting people killed.
- The "infamous" Mohammed Cartoons
- From the conservative Michelle Malkin web site (why, Lee asks, are
ultra conservatives the ones who seem especially supportive of freedom
of speech issues about these cartoons in particular?)--; http://www.michellemalkin.com/archives/004413.htm
- Stott had us look at the depiction of Mohammed wearing a
turban/bomb. He said he had talked to some of his Muslim
colleagues and they were most offended by the fact that anyone was
depicting Mohammed to begin with, but he said they also had major
problems with the way the cartoons linked the complex tradition of Islam
with a terrorist minority.
- Wall Street Journal article about the backlash to the cartoons: "How
Muslim Clerics Stirred Arab World Against Denmark" where Andrew
Higgins calls the anger and violence "a tsunami of rage."
- Lee has an affinity for the 70 virgins cartoon in the Malkin
link. Lee asked the group, "What would this community think
about a similar cartoon dealing with Mormonism's sacred
cows?" Like polygamy, said Alex Caldiero (Mitt Romney just
this morning--Feb. 8th,m 2007called polygamy
- Are Steve Benson cartoons about sacred cows (including Mormon sacred cows) offensive?
- Are Bagley
cartoons about various religious groups, including Mormons, offensive?
- Jesus Loves GOP
- Mormon Domination
