Facebook kills “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” page
You can’t expect a private corporation to care about something as important as free speech, but it’s still a disappointment to hear the childish cries of outraged Muslims all over the world was enough for Facebook to kill the “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” page from the “interwebs”.
It’s equally ironic/tragic the woman responsible for the whole thing also retracted and issued a sincere apology (even going so far as claiming she never intended to get this thing off the ground, even though a radio interview with her says otherwise). I guess she couldn’t stand the idea when people practice free speech, you invariably have some of the disagreeable kind in there as well. Hey folks, if you want speech to be safe, there’s no better safeguard against hurt feelings than good old fashion censorship. Of course, you might also not be allowed to say some important things as well in the process, so it’s best you get over your little ego and just accept the fact some people will always say shit you don’t like. The flip-side is no one is FORCING you to listen. If you don’t like it, do what the rest of us do every time some religious douche-bag starts spewing nonsense: ignore the fuckers.
**NOTE** It would appear the page is, in fact, quite alive and well. In any case, even if the page had been taken down, someone else would have started up another in no time flat. The truth is blasphemous drawings of the prophet will continue until Muslims learn none of them is protected against getting their feelings hurt.
