‘Draw Muhammad’ cartoonist changes name, goes into hiding at FBI’s insistence.

Seattle Weekly announced today that it will no longer run Molly Norris’s artwork. The newspaper is also reporting that legally, there is no more “Molly Norris.”

Norris — the Seattle-based illustrator whose cartoon sparked “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day!” earlier this year and a subsequent fatwa against her — has gone into hiding and changed her name at the guidance of the FBI, reports the Seattle Weekly, which says:

“The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, ‘going ghost’: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor.”

Seattle Weekly also says that the artist likens the situation to cancer — the threat could be benign, it could be more serious and sudden.

Comic Riffs last communicated with Norris in July. Attempts to contact her Wednesday were unsuccessful.

Several months ago, FBI officials alerted Norris to what they were treating as a “very serious threat,” according to a report. At that time, Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki said that Norris was a “prime target” for execution and that her “proper abode is hellfire.”

Awlaki, a New Mexico-born 39-year-old, has been called arguably the highest-profile English-speaking supporter of violent jihad. He has been linked to the recent Times Square bombing attempt and reportedly inspired Texas’s Fort Hood massacre.

Norris drew her “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” cartoon in April in response to Comedy Central’s editing of its program “South Park” and the animated show’s attempts to depict Muhammad — and to satirize reactions to any effort to ridicule Muhammad.

On April 25, shortly after the Norris created her “anti-censorship” cartoon, Comic Riffs broke the news that Norris was distancing herself from the illustration:

“I made a cartoon that went viral but [this campaign] isn’t really my thing,” Norris told Comic Riffs. “Other folks have taken it over.”

Several months ago, Norris’s April YouTube video of her explanation for the cartoon was “removed by the user.” In that video, Norris apologized to “everyone of the Muslim faith who has or will be offended” by her cartoon and supported calling off “Everyone Draw Mohammed Day,” which was staged May 20. She also urged America’s Muslims and non-Muslims to come together — to meet “halfway.”

Unfortunately for Norris, the FBI has been infiltrated and she could easily be outed. Where’s that DOJ Civil Rights Office? Where’s Holder? Where’s Obama calling for tolerance and rule of law? Silence.

When Americans must live in fear, change their identity at the request of our federal investigators, something is wrong. It’s called sharia law. It’s part of Islam. It’s not a religion of peace. Never has been. Probably never will be. Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

  1. The more you apologize, the more you draw attention to yourself. Norris certainly offended the least many cartoonists who drew Muhammad that day. Yet she was singled out. She ostensibly started but did not control the page. If she had not made a youtube video apologizing for her actions which attributed more and more legitimacy to the fatwa, she might have been able to let this storm cloud blow over her head.

    It’s not her fault, it’s simply that she didn’t realize she was negotiating with thugs, criminals, not reasonable people with a legit gripe.

    Criminals don’t accept apologies. They are looking for an excuse to commit their crimes. They look for those who can be victimized.

    So is this a religion, or a criminal cult, like a biker gang?

    • No, the fault belongs to the FBI. A citizen did something legal, though a bit dumber than parachuting. She was illegally threatened. I grant it is harder to get a criminal off the streets than to bully the average citizen, but for the FBI to not even try…? J. Edgar Hoover must be spinning in his grave. I propose the FBI budget be DRASTICALLY cut because of their ineffectiveness. They can make up some of this loss by firing all disloyal agents, those who obey a foreign power INSTEAD of the Constitution.

  2. I have no sympathy for Norris because she is a moral coward who caved. “She” is what you “get” when you live a country ruled by moral cowards. I’d have a kill or capture order on whoever put a fatwa on her and they would be living in fear, hiding and changing their name – for the rest of their life. These thugs act like Mafia Dons and our government kisses their asses because “it’s their religion”. F$%^ their religion. Every time a westerner was killed by a jihadi yelling “Allah akbar” I’d slaughter 1,000 Muslims at random for retribution. Americans and Europeans are COWARDS.

  3. They make fun of Jesus and God all the time without worry, but do that to that PIG muhammad and watch out you will be violently attacked and killed. I wish I was able to draw cartoons just so I could post some on line and without apologies! They can offend us in any way they want and we are suppoesed to keep our mouths shut and take it, bullshit! If they don’t like it too damn bad, get the F@#* out of our country. Islam is a bullshit religion and mohammad is a false prophet. He’s propably Satan’s son…

  4. Oh yeah the cult of peace is piglam. To bad mohommad (piss on his head) did not die before he started his cult the world would have been so much better off as it is we make it 2025 i will be surpized.

    and please muslmena tell su all how we just don’t “get it”

  6. Shame. Bending to a bully gets more bullying. I wish she would have gone through it and then did a Youtube video telling them to grow up and find something worthwhile to do, like letting the children in Afghanistan go to school.

  7. Molly, google “Frontsight”. Mr. Piazza will put you through some terrific self defense courses using handguns. You will learn how to observe everything around you, recognize rapidly developing dangerous situations and what you should do to fight and WIN in those situations.

    Don’t cower like a whipped puppy. Get a gun and shoot any SOAB that threatens you. Or, come out of hiding, take your jobs back, and hire someone to be your personal body gaurd. Or, better still, do both. Best of luck, and thank you for “Draw Muhammad Day”, I really enjoyed all the posts by people who ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND what Islam is really all about.

  9. New York police are now protecting Imam Rauf
    because he received threats. They did not say if they
    were protecting him from patriotic Americans or from
    mohammedan radicals. Perhaps they have a bigger
    budget than the Seattle police who refused to protect
    Molly Norris.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
