The Left Weighs In on Cartoon Riots… Blame Bush

Your Daily Kos does not disappoint:

Turns out that the three most offensive of the fifteen cartoons currently being circulated by the Islamic Society of Denmark are blatant fakes that were not among the twelve originals published in September of last year:

Here they are. (Yeah, I know, it’s a right-wing site. They aren’t always wrong about everything. (Hah!) Find me a lefty site that will host these images, and I’ll change the link accordingly. And really, since it’s to Bush’s benefit to depict Muslims as irrational folk who riot without provocation, this blog is actually hurting Bush’s cause by showing that the rioters were/are being bamboozled by slick liars — who as Soj points out are likely allied with Saudi Arabia, Syria and Egypt — who invented some seriously nasty provocations.)

To the Left, it is always about Bush… Always.

Even, Iranians know the West is full of Useful Idiots.

Comments from the Left over the Cartoon riots at the Huffington Post:

It’s Bush’s fault:

Any of you right wingers beginning to see why a lot of people warned before the Iraq invasion that it would be whacking a hornets nest, why Bush’s own father didn’t advocate it, Brent Scowcroft, Colin Powell, etc.?

But Dubya needed to upstage Dad.

It’s really Bush’s fault:

This has NOTHING to do with Muslim fundamentalism. This is a world wide problem. If anyone anywhere on this planet sticks there nose or makes fun of somebody who plain old doesn’t like to be F*cked with you’re gonna get hit and hit hard!
It’s the same thing that has happened countless times in our planets history.
Heck 2000+ people have died in Iraq the past few years because of religion plus a little mullah$$$ to boot! Had Bush never stroked those godly Christians so well many more lives would have been saved.

Tasteless Jew joke:

“I may be mistaken but I beleive that the Jews and Muslums worship the same God of Abraham.Was Abraham a Jew.”

The Arabs are pissed because the Jews cancelled their credit rating in the 1800’s.

Bush Be Stupid:

A quote from Osama’s last video message: “As for us we have nothing to loose. He who swims in the ocean does not fear the rain. You have occupied our land, you have attacked our honor and dignity, you have spilled our blood, stolen our wealth, destroyed our homes and you have shattered our security. And we will give you the same treatment.”

But nooooooo Bush is so well versed in other cultures and religion that he thinks he knows exactly what will work anywhere and everywhere on this earth.

It’s the Muslim neo-con’s fault:

The only difference between these neocon extremist Muslims(and they are Neocons) and the Neocon extremist Christians (and some Jews) in the U.S. is that we currently have laws protecting us from wholesale slaughter and mayhem.

The real extremist christians(and Im not referring to the public media clowns like Robertson, Reed et al)like the Dominionists(who are the power and financing of the christian right) would chomp at the bit to have this type of hysteria in America. Right now, christians must be content with blackmailing and forcing legislators to bow down to their whims.

And, then the Iranian Hardliners torched the Austrian Embassy.
