'Doonesbury' Creator Condemns Muhammad Cartoons Posted by Greg Sheffield on October 9, 2006 - 15:10. Gary Trudeau, creator of the 'Doonesbury' comic strip, says cartoonists should draw the line when it comes to offending people. In an interview published in the Santa Barbara Independent:
Q. What did you make of the Danish cartoon mess? I understand that you said you would never play with the image of Allah. But did you feel you should have done so out of a sense of professional solidarity, or to make a statement about freedom of speech? A. What exactly would that statement be? That we can say whatever we want in the West? Everyone already knows that. So then the question becomes, should we say whatever we want? That, to me, is the crux. Do you hurt people just because you can? Because you feel they shouldnt be deeply hurt, does that mean they arent? Should the New York Times run vicious caricatures of blacks and Jews just to show the First Amendment in action? At some point, common sense and sensitivity have to be brought to bear.
Should the New York Times run vicious caricatures of blacks and Jews just to show the First Amendment in action?
But then calls Condi "Brown Sugar" Do as I say, not as I do, eh?
And what do you do, Garry, with folks who will be offended by just about anything?
He's a lapdog for the Islamofascists.
The King of Offense thinks cartoonists should not offend!??
That's like Billdo Dillbo Dilldo Klintoon preaching against . . .
her unroyal lowness, her hideous heinous preaching against murderous goons and FBI file related extortion.
Scuba Teddy preaching against drunk driving and manslaughter and paying bribes to escape responsibility.
. . . .
Mr. Trudeau practices selective offensiveness. We musn't offend Mulsims. Fellow Americans, however, are fair game. Hypocrite.
They still publish "Doonesbury"?
forget it...just another msm lib/dem!
besides..who reads his shi-ite cartoons...they suck!!!
Excuse Me while I make a Barthroom Run!What a Lousy,Low-Life,HYPOCRITE this A**HOLE TRULY IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dungsberry has always been under the bottom to me.
Not to mention Ted Rall's disgusting racist cartoons depicting Condi.
Thanks for posting this...
EVEN for a rabid American Leftist like GT this is too stupid for words.
"The Family Circus" is funnier than Doonesbury.
And why can't they even spell his name?
My thought exactly. Well OK, not exactly. I was thinking 'scrapple face' but same idea.
Offending people has always been what his cartoons were about. What a hypocrite!
Conservatives aren't people to guys like Trudeau.
That's not an attack on Christians, it's an attack on Creationists. If you equate them, you admit that Creationism is a religious belief, not a scientific one.
