JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Fri Jan 16, 2015, 01:53 PM, and voted 1-6 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: we had enough thin skinned ones around here to keep 100 juries busy
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Posting someone's else's work with no comment is absolutely acceptable. Thanks for wasting our time.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This is the dumbest alert I have ever seen!!!
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: If cartoons like these are unacceptable on DU, that is a decision for the administrators to make, not a 7-person jury. So this is an easy call. Leave it alone.
Most of these look to be mainstream western editorial cartoons anyway.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Its commentary on a broader discussion going on now. I don't think any of them are hideworthy
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given

5. And?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depictions_of_Muhammad
The Quran does not explicitly forbid images of Muhammad, but there are a few hadith (supplemental teachings) which have explicitly prohibited Muslims from creating visual depictions of figures.[citation needed]
Most Sunni Muslims believe that visual depictions of all the prophets of Islam should be prohibited[3] and are particularly averse to visual representations of Muhammad.[4] The key concern is that the use of images can encourage idolatry.[5] In Shia Islam, however, images of Muhammad are quite common nowadays, even though Shia scholars historically were against such depictions.[4][6] Still, many Muslims who take a stricter view of the supplemental traditions will sometimes challenge any depiction of Muhammad, including those created and published by non-Muslims.[7]

7. If you are a liberal and think we should in some way censor ANYTHING other than child pornography

then I submit that you are not sure what liberal means.

I am not saying you have to like it, but any suppression of any speech, cartoons, etc., is the opposite of liberal.

I wonder where Hunter S. Thompson's writings would fall in the new "censor if you want" America....

9. There is a DU member who posts cartoons all the time, every day

 

I don't think it is forbidden.
