THE BOSTON GLOBE SAYS: "CARTOONISTS = NAZIS."
Why won't the Boston Globe stand for the principle of free speech and show their support for the cartoonists whose lives are being threatened by Muslims demanding their beheading? Because the cartoonists are just like the Nazis, that's why! Or is it the Klan? Here, read this from Saturday's Boston Globe editorial page for yourself:
"Depicting Mohammed wearing a turban in the form of a bomb with a sputtering fuse is no less hurtful to most Muslims than Nazi caricatures of Jews or Ku Klux Klan caricatures of blacks are to those victims of intolerance. That is why the Danish cartoons will not be reproduced on these pages."
The Globe's "reasoning" reveals a shallowness of thought that would embarrass the editorial page of your average high school paper. The argument that "Jews were offended by Nazis, therefore cartoonists who offend Muslims are Nazis" is impossible to take seriously. After all, there are Muslims offended whenever a woman shows her ankles in public or are allowed to drive a car. Does that make Paris Hilton a Nazi?
The question to be answered by rational people (which may or may not include the editorial staff of the Globe) isn't "Is someone offended?" but rather "Is there a rational basis for the offense?" And I challenge any rational person to look at these cartoons and say "Yes, this is offensive."
How convenient for the Globe that giving into the irrational demands of murderous thugs also prevents its readers from seeing for themselves just how shameful the Globe's behavior truly is. Many Globe readers no doubt assume that these cartoons must be on par with "Piss Christ" or the portrayal of the Virgin Mary in elephant dung--two (taxpayer-funded!)works of "offensive" art supported by the Globe in the past.
But as you can see using the link on this page, the cartoons are mild by any modern standard. Nazi? The Klan? These cartoons aren't even outrageous enough to make the cover of Rolling Stone--which currently features racist Kanye West as Christ in an crown of thorns.
Even worse than the Globe's reference to the cartoonists as Nazis and Klansmen is their stated position on the Muslim thugs advocating murder. What is the Globe's take on them? Silence. Not one word.
There isn't a single mention of the violence committed by these opponents of free speech, not one quote from the protesters themselves about beheadings or executions. Not one assertion by the Globe that killing people over a cartoon is idiotic, or even wrong.
Why would the Globe take such ludicrous and indefensible positions? The only reason I can think of is that their real motivation is even more embarrassing: Fear. They are backing down, kowtowing to threats from Muslims, not out of respect, but out of cowardice. The Boston Globe doesn't have the courage to stand for free speech.
The Globe editorial writers should remember that the next time THEIR newspaper is attacked by some special interest group in Massachusetts. If the Globe doesn't think freedom is inherently worth defending, why should defenders of freedom ever step forward again to defend the Globe?
The Boston Globe is run by Communists.
Every week on the editorial page there is a Bush cartoon more offensive then anything published about the Prophet.
I can think of another, equally plausible reason: The Boston Globe, property of the NY Times, is on the side of our enemies and is making the enemy's argument for him for that reason.
Wish I had quick access to the Boston Globe's caricatures relating to the Catholic Church. They are numerous and are absolutely insulting to Catholics; and that's why the Globe's readership is dwindling faster than Ted Kennedy's rum bottle. Boston Globe writers and cartoonists are the experts on insulting Catholics, and are the ultimate hypocrites.
I'll wager the Boston Globe editors are more worried about violent Muslim retaliation rather than lofty, hypocritical principles.
therefore cartoonists who offend Muslims are Nazis
I'll bet the Globe opposed the cuts subsidizing the "art" that included human waste, urine and Christian religious symbols.
No, that's not the reason.
The real reason is the Globe won't pick fight with those who will find their homes and kill their families.
OMG, the Globe has become accessory to murder and riot.
Does your link work?
For myself......an extra day at the range and double up on ammo.
When the stuff hits the fan...I'll be ready to respond in kind!
Muslims in Europe have already killed.....once they get the taste of blood, there's no stopping the rabid curs.
If Europe had retained it's Christian heritage, the ships would be loading Muzzies now for a one-way deportation to the homeland!
Slim sez: "BOSTON GLOBE=DHIMMIS"
That link needs to be posted on every thread about this subject!

***The Boston Globe is run by New York Times' communists who are congenitally stupid, ignorant, brainwashed with stale communist partylines and cliches, and exercise daily the Marxist axiom of "lie and deny."
***If there are any "nazis" in the world, they are fantatical Muslim/Islamic stormtroopers and their Goebbel-esque Mullahs having tantrums and issuing death threats.
This all makes me want to be a cartoonist!!
Marxist hypocritical rag.
