    The journalistic equivalent of "OC baiting" French mag's Mohammed cartoon

    Only many more people will be killed. French magazine publishes naked cartoon of Mohammed, was firebombed last year for less severe cartoon. France is closing virtually all embassies in Muslim countries.

    I bet all the liberal minds will praise and rejoice of this bold journalistic event.

    It occurs to me that there really is no "concealed" relevant to the First Amendment.

    France to close embassies in fear of cartoon backlash - FRANCE - FRANCE 24

    We (the Western Christian World) should close all of the Embassies in Muslim countries and cut off aid.

    Let them fight it out (as is their want) and we'll pick up the pieces afterwards.

    I do not see the comparison at all. The OC baiter is trying to get a police reaction so as to gin up some sort of false arrest claim, the other is showing a certain group of people that others will not be cowered into not exercising their free speech rights. I would discuss further but I fear this will go political. Don't want to violate forum rules...

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Some of you folks are obviously too young to remember the Bugs Bunny CARTOON riots back when Elmer Fudd called Bugs a "No Good Cwazie Wasskellwie Wabbit!" and said that he was going to "bwoe his bwaines out."
    The roadrunner was dragged through the streets. Popeye and Brutus were killed and Olive Oil was nearly starved to death.
    Snow White was decapitated and all seven dwarfs were imprisoned under horrible conditions.
    Poor Mel Blank had his tounge cut out right before Disney Studios was burnt to the ground.
    And you don't even want to know what happened to Tweety Bird.

    I wish they'd done something clever instead of NSFW. The Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons were an order-of-magnitude more clever. Even the winners of Reason magazine's "everybody draw Mohammed" contest were entirely more clever.

    NSFW? Welcome to junior high

    THAT'S WHERE I REMEMBER YOU FROM!!!!! We were on the same paddy wagon ride after the Disney firebombing! I still feel bad for Tweety, I think the tar and de-feathering was kind of harsh. Someone should have stopped Sylvester from doing it.

    I do see the comparison to the extent that each is trying to gain something. Maybe not the same thing but something. I think they're just trying to start crap to gain publicity and that's about the easiest way for them to gain it worldwide. I mean come on, no one has to be afraid of these people but on the flip side, no one needs to be going around the playground slapping all of the other kids just to prove it either.

    And just because it's legal or a right doesn't mean that it's always a good idea. He says, "...we're just doing our job." And what is their job, intentionally messing with the masses? Geeze, come on people! And I am not sympathizing with any side or religion; I just simply don't see the point in defaming anyone's religion, no matter what that might be. So as far as my opinion to the OC baiter vs. the religious degrading, I think both are kind of silly.

    For embassies : Just put those one guns on the roof, that shoot 6000 rds per minute, and can be set up to a motion detector and heat senors. Then put up a nice sign, anyone who proceeds beyond this sign will be shot. If you need help or to enter, please us the phone behind you and dial "0". If they walk or run past the sign, 1/2 second of fire will fill them with a lot of holes.

    Will the Aegis system work fast enough on an RPG if it were fired at the building ?

    I can think of a lot of cartoons that would tick them off a lot more than that one.

    Great... Another war about to start that we will have to bail out France on just like in WW2 and Vietnam...

    What other countries has France not ticked off yet? I am trying to figure out who we still will have to fight for them.
