#NotAllLefties Justify Jihad

Finally, a story about Muslim fanatics attacking cartoonists that has a happy ending.

Chuck Ross reports:

Two men who opened fire Sunday outside of an event in Garland, Texas attended by Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker and outspoken critic of radical Islam, have been killed by police…

Sunday’s event was hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group led by Islam critic Pamela Geller…

Wilders and Geller presented a $12,500 check to Bosch Fawstin, the winner of the American Freedom Defense Initiative’s first inaugural “Draw the Prophet” contest.

And then a couple of Islamic fanatics art critics tried to kill them. Unlike the Charlie Hebdo massacre, fortunately, these two assholes went to meet their 72 virgins without bringing along any company. Buh-bye.

I hadn’t heard about this event, and I wouldn’t have cared about it one way or the other if those two would-be jihadis hadn’t proven that the attendees are 100% correct. If you offend a Muslim in 2015, you’re fair game.

And our moral, ethical and intellectual betters in the media will justify the attempt on your life:

The same reason someone would go to see “Book of Mormon,” Marc. The same reason someone would do this:

The only difference is that in 21st Century America, Mormons and Christians probably won’t try to kill you for it. It’s possible, but unlikely. That’s why you don’t cower to them.

Or how about this gem, from a New York Times reporter:

Goodbye, “All the news that’s fit to print.” Hello, “Free speech aside.”

If this attitude seems odd to you, you’re not alone:

Bosch Fawstin gets the last word. Here’s his winning cartoon, and his reaction to the resulting attempt on his life:
