HBO — to Bob re: Jim Tibbs Cartoon

Bearable Bob: “I have to say the Jim Tibbs cartoon is a huge insult to the entire world and religion of Islam. But of course he knew that and DFO did too. You anti-Islamist haters are morally in the same stinking sewer as the Islamofascist haters. Spare your two wrongs make a right moral reasoning of a 3 year old arguments. It’s sadly predictable and sadly stupid. I watch wingnuts blow their pinheaded little tops at Ted Rall cartoons and then they hoot and guffaw over hate cartoons like the one above.”

DFO: You’re being PC here, Bob. I ran that cartoon past a young Muslim friend of mine, who said she saw nothing wrong with it, and she ran it past a Muslim friend of hers, who saw nothing wrong with it. In fact, they thought it was funny. This may be an example of a Liberal white guy in Spokane Valley trying to feel offended by something that he thinks will offend Muslims. Do you think that I would publish that without checking it out first? Mebbe this shows that moderate Muslims have better senses of humor than white Libs?
