Cartoons are an expression of our freedom of speech. We have a right to create them. Let’s examine some expressions from the past.
This from White Aryans Resist. One of the cleaner ones I could find.
The latest rage in hate. Latinos who come here looking for a chance at a better life.
An old favorite. Jews, here depicted as snakes.
The Irish were considered sub-human, and a threat to our country.
Yes, they are cartoons. Yes, your right to create them is beyond doubt. Yes, they are the trash of twisted minds, and are nothing to be proud of.
What the Nazis said about Jews in the 30’s and 40’s.
- Jews are untrustworthy. Nothing they say can be believed.
- Jews want to destroy the government.
- Jews are sexual perverts. They prey on children.
- Jews will enslave non-Jews.
- Jews are the cause of economic collapse.
Statements by Pam Geller
- This is a war.
- How much accommodation of any kind should we give to murderous savagery?
- Islamic law, Sharia, with its death penalty for blasphemy, today constitutes a unique threat to the freedom of speech and liberty in general.
- Allowing this sort of censorship would mean nothing less than civilizational suicide.
- We must take back our freedom.
Statements by Tom Metzger, founder of the White Aryan Resistance
- Judaism is a conspiracy against all races.
- Moslems are no less an enemy than Jews.
- The reason the Jews hate Nazis is primarily because they didn’t come up with the idea first. (I assume the idea is genocide.)
The common thread in all of these comments and cartoons is vilification. The object of their attention is at war with us. They will destroy our way of life. They cannot be trusted. They must be stopped.
I have been fortunate in my life to have met many Jews and Muslims, and they validate one truth about mankind; most human beings in the world are decent folk, who want to raise their kids in peace, and give those kids a better chance at happiness than they had.
Only about five percent of human beings thrive on the hatred of others. Perhaps we should vilify them.
