Cartoonist behind “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” poster getting nervous

The cartoonist who created the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” is apparently fearing the jihadists and sending up the white flag of sharia. via Cartoonist overwhelmed by response to “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” – Seattle News – MyNorthwest.com.

The momentum drawn from Norris’ cartoon was more than the artist had anticipated and by Sunday Norris had posted the following message on her website:

“I am NOT involved in “Everybody Draw Mohammd Day!” I made a cartoon that went viral and I am not going with it. Many other folks have used my cartoon to start sites, etc. Please go to them as I am a private person who draws stuff”

On her website Norris originally explained the campaign was not meant to disrespect any religion, but rather meant to protect people’s right to express themselves.

In her present post Norris directs those interested in submitting drawings to the other sites who’ve taken up the campaign.

This is her current post on her website with the original image:

Statement:

I make cartoons about current, cultural events. I made a cartoon of a ‘poster’ entitled “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” with a nonexistent group’s name — Citizens Against Citizens Against Humor — drawn on the cartoon also. I did not intend for my cartoon to go viral. I did not intend to be the focus of any ‘group’. I practice the first amendment by drawing what I wish. This particular cartoon of a ‘poster’ seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for. I am going back to the drawing table now!

Thank you,

Molly

It’s not the first time a Muhammad cartoon contest has been held, and after all, Islam is a religion of peace right? What is there to fear? If Americans don’t stand strong and proud of our belief in freedoms, and the right to offend others, we will lose those freedoms and become slaves to those who take offense at everything (or use that excuse to subjugate us).

Update from the LA Times on the self-identified idiot…or in Islamic terms – dhimmi (there’s at least two of them):

Once it became a national story she reeled back, asking Savage — in an email he provided to The Ticket — if he would “be kind enough to switch out my poster” with another one — a much tamer version which has no images attributed to Muhammad.

“I am sort of freaked out about my name/image being all over the place,” her e-mail reads.

He didn’t change it, nor did he post the tamer version. Besides, after Savage posted it, many other sites picked it up including The Atlantic and Reason.

When asked about her change of heart, Norris told The Ticket that she didn’t intend for the cartoon “to go viral.”

Then why did she send the cartoon to the media in the first place?  “Because I’m an idiot,” Norris replied.

This particular cartoon of a ‘poster’ seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for,” she said.

It’s not a nerve, it’s Islam, and they use terrorism to scare people into giving up their rights and living fearful lives.

She doesn’t appear to be alone.  The creator of a Facebook page dedicated to the day has bowed out as well.  Jon Wellington told the Washington Post (before abandoning ship) that he created the page because he “loved [Norris’s] creative approach to the whole thing — whimsical and nonjudgmental.”

While he was still associated with his own event he said: “To me, this is all about freedom of expression and tolerance of other viewpoints, so I hope you’ll help make this a sandbox that anyone can play in, if they want. I don’t think it’d be right under the circumstances for me (or anyone) to censor inflammatory posts *ahem*, but let’s be welcoming and inclusive, mmkay?”

Apparently the posts weren’t “welcoming” enough, as on Sunday morning he announced his departure from the cause. “I am aghast that so many people are posting deeply offensive pictures of the Prophet,” he writes. “Y’all go ahead if that’s your bag, but count me out.”

Did he think people were going to post flattering images?

That’s what Facebook user Douglas Armstrong wondered too.  “You created an event inviting people to submit pictures of Mohammed,” Armstrong wrote.  “And apparently you’re so new to the Internet that you didn’t foresee what would happen?”

Although Wellington had abandoned his cause, he apparently was sticking around to answer questions.  To Armstrong’s question, Wellington responded: “I guess I had more faith in human nature than was warranted.”

Another user, Paul St. George, had little patience for Wellington. “If you’re not going to attend your own event then take it down dumbass and quit boring us.”

The show must go on – we will post any and all images.

  1. It’s a sad when when people are forced to retract what is obviously true, and redact it to the falsehood of sharia. Norris shouldn’t have to fear for anything (Life,Limb,Etc.) because she saw a wrong and commented on it. She was being truthful, unlike Obama and the supposed leadership of this country who claim to protect citizens and their rights all the while fanning the flames of jihaddists and encouraging violence thru nonaction.Stand up America and combat the nonsense that has taken hold of our country’s leadership get out and vote for those willing to put a stop to sharia and the toltalatarian lifestyle it proscribes! If you don’t we wil all be slaves or dead.

  2. What a shame. I’ll be so glad when the average citizen stands up and starts taking the violence to the Muslim. It’s their religion and their way of life, not mine. They should be responsible for the consequences. Don’t even begin to try to tell me that I should acept it. NEVER.

  3. People in North America are loath to believe that Muslims are at war with the world, but guess what:

    MUSLIMS ARE AT WAR WITH THE WORLD.

    They will not end the war until all kafirs are submitted to Islamic overlordship.

    Disinformation is jihad, as are death threats.

  4. The fear of violence is a legitimate tactic of the Political lslamists in winning the hearts and minds of the American People.

    For example – to live in “peace and harmony” with our fellow Islamist American citizens we must not offend them with our free speech. For example, South Park, drawing cartoons of Muhammad, and doing or saying anything that MAY offend an Islamist, the Qur’an, Shariah Law, or the the Hadiths.

    In order keep this equilibrium of “peace and Harmony” with our fellow Islamist citizens we must “accommodate” their cultural practices to the detriment of our own.

    If we as Americans do these things there will be Peace and Harmony between Islamist Americans and the rest of the American melting pot. Dar al-Harb and Dar al-Islam nothing else matters – Don’t know what it means – look it up and remember.

  5. This is scary. The more the Jihadists are able to scare us into submission, the more freedom they will be able to take from us, until we have nothing left at all.

    Some people are going to have to stand up to them, even at the if it means paying the ultimate price and I will be thankful to all the brave soles who are willing and able to take that risk. We can not let them destroy us through fear. If we let them do that, all is lost. If you anyone thinks this will end here, think again.

  6. Well I’m going to send my drawings to the telephone poles of everywhere in the dead of night but they’ll be there in the am. We need to grow a set of them. This is America. These boastful little clowns who still need their indulgent mamas to wipe their backasides can go to hell. Grow a pair ! Get out and flag those drawings. The first amendment is in effect. If you
    don’t believe that you are most unfortunately already in dhimmitude.

  7. The long arm of Islam, scimitar in hand, reached out and tapped her on the shoulder. What would you do?
    The Muslims are so very effective at terrorizing. Looking at history, they almost always get what they want.
    Some smart academician should do a study on their methods, – If they dare!

  8. I’m not willing to accomodate such evil beliefs, and forsake my own beliefs for theirs, as the following statement from this article says – and I don’t find this statement funny at all:

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    "In order keep this equilibrium of “peace and Harmony” with our fellow Islamist citizens we must “accommodate” their cultural practices to the detriment of our own."
