Just weeks after violent Islamists sent American cartoonist Molly Norris into hiding in fear of her life, the Denver Post pulled a Non Sequitur cartoon titled, “Where’s Muhammad,” Michael D. Brown reported.
Because Brown does not offer direct evidence that the Denver Post also pulled the cartoon, I called the main switchboard and asked for somebody who works in the cartoon department. A representative told me, “Yes, we did pull it.”
As Brown notes, “Muhammad doesn’t even appear in the cartoon.”
With this decision, the Denver Post has sanctioned violence and betrayed the First Amendment. I urge the paper to change course.

How can you blame the Denver Post? In our egalitarian Leftist society, noone will come to your defense against Jihad Muslims, not even the government. But I wonder how you reconcile your position with unlimited mass 3rd world immigration, including Muslim immigration.
The problems we have with death threats from Muslims is because there are Muslims in the West. If we want to live free of Sharia and Jihad violence, don’t you think it would be a good start to limit our Muslim population (preferably down to zero)?

First, I do not call for “unlimited” immigration; the contagious and the violent must be kept out. Violence is precisely the issue at point here.
Second, keeping out all peaceful Muslims because of the violence of other Muslims violates justice as much as it would for any other religious group.
