It’s not just Islamists – another variation of the Left who get upset with provocative cartoons.
Liberals have their panties in a bunch over a Missouri Newspaper cartoon that depicts the protest and looters in #Ferguson. The editorial page cartoon that is causing a stir can be seen here (along with a PDF download).
Steal to honor Michael!

The Editor, Jim Romenesko, defends the cartoon as provocative but not racist. However, the defense isn’t strong enough in that a qualifier is added to explain racism is certainly not the “intent.” Teachable moment for the Editor: Truth needs no qualifier, and a right to freedom of speech is at stake. Expose injustice in every form and stand by the decision to do so with bold colors—not pastels (to quote Reagan).
Liberals working themselves into a frenzy as seen by the tweets posted here:
The phone number and email contact for the Columbia MO Tribune provided in the tweets. Call and write to offer counter support to the paper for their right to freedom of speech. Offer Kudos for an outstanding cartoon depiction of the truth.
