Making a Point The Hard Way
- Wow. The 1st and 2nd Amendments combine with an anti-Islam meeting at a mosque. I have not decided yet if the organizers should be awarded the Medal of Freedom or be rounded up and put in padded cells.
(Phoenix Sun Times) - A group of bikers — who have been encouraged to bring guns — is planning on hosting a Muhammed cartoon drawing contest outside of a Phoenix mosque.
What could possibly go wrong?
Jon Ritzheimer, a former Marine and current anti-Islam activist, is the force behind the event, which will be held Friday outside of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix at 6:15 p.m. local time. Friday just happens to be the Muslim day of communal prayer.
A Facebook page has been created for the event, which is being called “Freedom of Speech Rally Round II.” In the event’s description it says that contest is a “response to the recent attack in Texas.”
That attack happened when anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller hosted a “Draw Muhammed” contest and two men opened fire on the event. Both were killed by officers at the scene.
The post also says “people are encouraged to exercise their second amendment [sic] right at this event just in case our first amendment [sic] right comes under the much anticipated attack.”
But don’t get the wrong idea about this event; it explicitly says that they won’t have any food vendors “because we don’t want this to turn into a carnival.”
