I’m sure most of you who read gun blogs realize that yesterday was Everybody Draw Mohammad Day. The idea was to spit in the fact of censorship by committing sacrilege. A lot of funny and well done drawings were produced. Obviously I didn’t partake in the day’s festivities because I’m incredibly lazy.
But now we have the day after and the person who is credited with the idea, Molly Norris, is apologizing profusely. She’s pretty much doing everything she can to separate herself from the idea she sparked via her cartoon.
So what are some of the after shocks from the event? Well Pakistan went and blocked Facebook and YouTube because they were hosting images and videos for the day’s events. Threats are being made by extremists and one cartoonist is trying to back peddle in an effort to avoid possible attack against her person.
Censorship is dangerous stuff.
