I first posted this in July of last year...but since I keep reading about how the riots over in Indonesia and Syria are the fault of the newspapers publishing cartoons I figured it was time for a reprint along with some additions.Here's the original, from last July:
Now I'll continue my rant...
Earlier this week and continuing today over at BlogCritics
, a site I frequent and rant on often, I've been involved in a discussion involving the publishing of CARTOONS
in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten first and some other European newspapers later, depicting Muslims in a derogatory light. People seem to think that cartoons are a legitimate reason to commit murder and try to justify it by saying that it's our fault...I've even read things saying that America being in Iraq is why Muslims burned down Danish embassies in Indonesia and Syria. Nothing happens in Syria that President Bashar Al-Assad doesn't know about so that makes that claim bullshit right there.
I got really pissed and finally posted this comment...I gotta tell ya...some of you people are pretty fucking thickheaded...you're all from the same...what is it...13 tribes...Muslims...Jews...it's the same damn thing! Same god...or allah...or whatever you want to call him...same freaking guy! You're all brown! The only European Jews are converted Christians! Judaism started in THE MIDDLE EAST!!! Long before your religion was invented!
You're offended...GET THE FUCK OVER IT!!! I'm offended that people are to damn stupid to realize that a cartoon can't hurt you! More than half the motherfuckers rioting probably can't even read the captions on the cartoons...they're only offended because they were TOLD to be offended!
I know some of you will try to call me a racist or a bigot or whatthefuckever...and I don't give a rat’s ass...
You want to blow up the fucking planet? Find a better reason than a cartoon! Jesus H. Fucking Christ!
Sorry for the language, but in all honesty, I used the words I did to prove a point. WE
can say pretty much anything we want in this country. It's one of the reasons we became a self governing society in the first place. I mean, after they did the "We the people" thing and set up how everything was gonna run, they wrote down the Bill of Rights and the very first thing written down says you can't tell me who I should or shouldn't worship and you can't stop me from telling you who you should or shouldn't worship...you don't have to listen to me...I don't have to listen to you...but we are both allowed to spew whatever BS we decide to spew.
Anyway, the reason that I reposted the July thing is because I'm hearing the same bullshit argument again! That it's our fault...or white Europeans' fault that all this rioting and embassy burning happened because they shouldn't have published those cartoons.
Apparently some Muslims believe that creating an image of Muhammad is blasphemous, but those same folks will name every living creature after the guy...I know a few Jesse's and a few more Jesus’...that's the Hispanic pronunciation there...and I've seen a million images of Jesus in my life...at least a million..remember...I went to catholic school so I was probably beat with one or two of them also! I never saw anyone burn down a building because of it though...
I remember hearing from other Catholics that all the rest of you heathens...protestants that is, were all wrong and us Catholics were the only ones going to heaven. Then I met a few Jews...more of the hell bound. I'm so lucky to have been baptized a catholic...you poor bastards...I remember meeting a girl in HS that was NO religion! Man oh man she was so screwed! When I asked her about it she told me that her parents told her they thought it would be better if they gave her all the facts and let her decide when she was old enough. To bad...guess her parents were going to hell too!
Now I have Muslims telling me that not only are all of you going to hell, but I'm gonna be there with you! And if they have their way...it'll happen sooner than I'd like...because I'm an infidel, just like everybody else.
The scary part is some of them spew this bullshit about a religion of peace. Yesterday they blew up one of the supposedly holiest of holiest places, Golden Mosque. What happened next? You guessed it; a mosque on the other side of town gets blown up. They're blowing up their own mosques in the name of Allah. Tell me that's not the most fucked up thing you've ever heard!!! This is "the religion of peace". You get that folks? the religion of peace people are blowing up each others churches in the name of the SAME GOD AND PROPHET!!!
I'm sorry, but there is not a person on this planet that will ever convince me that Islam is a religion of peace. As a matter of fact, I think it goes back to something I read that Jesus said about being wary of false prophets...but that's just me.
...and so you know, I could be wrong, but I think those folks that told me that only Catholics were going to heaven might have been wrong. I sure hope so anyway...for all your sakes! I'm kidding, I'm kidding!
