A cartoon a day keeps the terrorists at bay

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day

I have been waiting for someone of stature to say this. I agree completely and find this solution very obvious. Now the problem is that the media is mostly Liberal and I find them unable or unwilling to see the logic of this. As well, they are great at working together to help people like Obama, but not to help Western Society in general. It could be that we need an association of Conservative media that will do this. But a leader or member of its association will surely be selected by Islamists and assassinated as a warning. At that point, do they cave in or double down on your suggestion? There will be a price to pay and someone will pay it. But in the long run, it will work. But are these people willing to risk their lives for the cause? I believe they should not be granted the First Amendment if they are unwilling to die for Freedom. But that pre-supposes they believe Western Society is worth dying for. We did believe it during WW1 and WW2. I fear that is no longer the case. Any media mogul willing to organize this? (I hear crickets chirping so far.) I hope your granddaughters like burkas. We may be the last generation to be willing to put our names out there without fear. Think of what we are leaving our children.
