Today Is the Second Annual Everyone Draw Mohammed Day

Filed under: General — Aaron Worthing @ 10:41 am

[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here.  Or by Twitter @AaronWorthing.]

So, if you are inclined to do it, go over to this page and learn how (please don’t sent submissions to my email, but to the email on the page).  And no talent is needed.  Like here’s one from today:

That’s right, tremble before this Dreaded Stickfigure of Blasphemy.  Tremble, I say!

(And yes, believe it or not, that is enough to offend the Islamofascists.)

And if you just want to enjoy the drawings that are often crappy as art but beautiful as a defense of freedom of expression and religion (or if you are an Islamofascist looking for a reason to get mad—like you need an excuse), go to the main page.

And if you miss the day for any reason, there is no law that says you have to submit one today.  You will strike just as much of a blow for freedom if you submit it tomorrow or the next day.

Anyway, once again thanks to regular commenters Dustin and JD who have been helping with this.

  1. And please, pass this around to anyone who you think might be interested.

  2. I strongly OBJECT to the above depiction of the Holy Prophet!!!!! It is unrealistic blasphemy!!!@@$$#@@!!

    “Strike a blow for freedom”? Really? I mean, really?

    Navy Seal Team Six, Aaron Worthing. I get the two confused sometimes.

  4. ad hominem attacks & Kman; a distinction without a difference.

  5. Kman

    yes, that’s exactly what i am saying. i am and the people who killed bin laden is the same.

    Good reading comp, there, btw, which i was talking to those who would submit drawings and not about myself.

    yes, technically i drew one too. and?

    all this proves is once again you are a douche.

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  6. Well, I salute you and the 101st “Fightin’”Keyboard Commandos. A grateful nation thanks you for the cartoons and doodles which bring the enemy to its collective knees, thus making the world safe for democracy.

  7. I always forget that DSFOB tag.

    Comment by Kman —

    Smells like straw. So you aren’t really making an argument for freedom unless you’re a Navy SEAL now? What about all those times folks like Kman condemned Cheney’s assassination squads (same guys)?

    But still, no, this isn’t about glorifying ourselves as on par with war heroes. This is actually the opposite. We’re trying to make defiance to death threats over blasphemy rules a COMMON THING. We don’t want to prove how much better we are than everyone else… we want everyone to defy these commands.

    Kman, put your partisan differences aside today and join us. Violent threats only work because the victims make them work. Comedy Central fearful silencing of South Park’s statement on the issue is a sad reminder.

    Anyway, Kman, I don’t see any part of this post where Aaron congratulates himself. Your reaction shows you simply cannot think about anything but Aaron Worthing, even when there are interesting and major issues in play.

  8. Isn’t this one awesome?

    He even labels it ‘Mo’.

  9. Kman, another point: Aaron Worthing has made a prominent display of defiance against those who actually go out of their way to kill people.

    It’s not a theoretical or paranoid fear: the threats that inspired the movement actually included pictures of a murdered cartoonist.

    You mock that? I think it’s brave. I think that why you had to find some absurdly high standard of bravery to compare it against. Is standing up to Islamic terrorists on the internet the same as personally infiltrating an Al Qaida compound and shooting their leadership? What a silly standard.

    Especially from you, Kman. You know that your blog contradicts many of the arguments you’ve made here, and that you are so afraid of your real name being associated with your comments here that you zealously guard the URL of your blog.

    I challenge you: do you give Aaron permission to post the URL to your blog?

    You mock Aaron for standing up for his beliefs and comments… are you willing to stand up for yours? Can you measure up to Aaron Worthing, Kman?

    You know what, i am not putting up with your crap. welcome to moderation for the day. it will come off tomorrow, or if patrick takes it off sooner.

    Seriously, what a d–k.

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  11. there is no law that says you have to submit one today–Aaron

    Ironically, Islam means submission. I REFUSE TO SUBMIT!

    Seriously, thought this was such a great idea last year that I submitted a no-artistic-talent-whatsoever drawing with my own real name and location last spring. For this no-names-on-the-Internet coward, that was a “big f****** deal,” as our VP would say.

    But free speech is important even if some people don’t think so, and Islam is just as mockable as any other religion has been. When murderers try to threaten those who exercise it, time to stand up. Thanks to Aaron and others who played a very large part getting this I-am-Spartacus online movement going.

    Irony much?

    Kman (5576bf)

  13. Okay let’s stop responding to Kman. he’s in the penalty box, so let’s ignore him.

    i removed a few comments for that reason–and not because i disagree with the righteous slapping he was getting.

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  14. Wait…am I in the penalty box too?

    Darn meddling kids links…

  15. I am making a drawing.

  16. I recently quoted Ted Rall’s comments saying the he doesn’t support drawing Mohammed because it would provoke anger (anyone familiar with Rall understands that this is a particularly hypocritical cop out). He actually replied (on the EDMD blog) that I was “lying” because he was only saying he wouldn’t draw Mohammed because “many” say it would provoke anger. So while I replied that I had actually quoted that “many” part, and noted how this doesn’t make a difference to his position or my opinion of it, Aaron had a much better response.

    He challenged Ted to prove me wrong by drawing Mohammed.

    Instead, Ted Rall’s latest is a cartoon about the IMF leader, with a boring joke that he’s been raping the world with his policies (As if a million people didn’t already say this a week ago). Once again, easy target who won’t hit back.

    Ted’s not one of those who can honestly say he simply wishes to be courteous. I think he really shows some hilarious hypocrisy on this.

  17. ok done

  18. NOYK

    No, not in penalty box. just removed one comment to tamp down things.

    Only kman is in the penalty box.

    Oh OK. Must be in spam filter then. (usedasteriskstocusslikeBidenIswear :) )

    lol when i went to your link and saw the busty anime chica at the top of the page… i thought THAT was what you meant by “mountain.”

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  21. Aaron, I wish I were good enough to draw girls that way, but I’m even worse than you are. Another reason I drew a mountain was because I can’t draw anything more complex than that.

    Steven Den Beste (99cfa1)

  22. steve

    for my money you could have cut and pasted an image of mohammed with the anime chic and written a dirty joke about bringing mohammed to the mountains and that would have been sufficient…

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  23. Steven drew it in flash, so he’s got a leg up on me. I am using GIMP because Windows 7 has a crippled version of the once great paintbrush program, and for some reason, it’s a little over my head.

    Happyfeet’s drawing is here, btw.

    Daleyrocks submitted this.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  24. Thanks for that link, Ian. I particular find this line interesting:

    His attorney reported that despite Chesser’s “increasing devotion to a rigid form of Islam,” he “volunteered to campaign in the 2008 presidential election.”

    They always have to spin it. Like a rigid Muslim would want to support John Mccain over Barack Hussein Obama.

    We have a very messed up country right now. I think this Chesser SOB exemplifies a lot of disturbing problems. An anime watching Buddhist leaves the mosh pit to condemn Western culture with threats of murder?

    He’ll probably spend decades in prison for it, as well he should, but I’m sure he keeps telling himself it was no big deal. I wonder what he’d be doing today if he hadn’t been caught, or hadn’t hit ‘publish’? Paintball? Organizing for America? Journalism?
