Bad and Worst

The Daily Tar Heel student newspaper at the University of North Carolina has stepped foot into the Cartoon Wars.

The UNC Muslim Student Association, of course, is having a fit. Not that the image is inaccurate (in my opinion, this cartoon is editorially superior to most of the other cartoons I've seen on the subject, even if the cartoonist hasn't fully developed as an artist), but that the University allowed the cartoon to run.

It's real simple folks.

You can live in a country that values freedom of expression and learn to develop tolerance as a result, or you can live in a country without the freedom of intellectual diversity, and deal with stagnant minds and derelict cultures.

The choice is yours.

The thing that annoys me most right now is the way in which the media is now anxious to show all those additional Abu Ghraib photos to further endanger American military and civilian personnel overseas, but the pussies won't show the satirical cartoons.

What a bunch of two-faced cowards. They are scared for themselves, but they could give a sh*t less when it comes to Americans in harms way.

Hypocritical traitors!

That has bothered me for years. I remember being overseas in some places and hearing news reports that were totally blown out of proportion. In my younger days when I first left the country, I though it was chalked up to not getting the facts right. The longer it went on the more I realized the facts were there, just not being viewed objectively. The worst spin sells the newspapers. That's probably why I don't get one delivered (except coupon Sunday).
