It turns out that the Fowl Atheist actually defended the Muslim outrage sparked by the notorious Danish cartoons:
There are some things a cartoonist would be rightly excoriated for publishing: imagine that one had drawn an African-American figure as thick-lipped, low-browed, smirking clown with a watermelon in one hand and a fried chicken drumstick in the other. Feeding bigotry and flaunting racist stereotypes would be something that would drive me to protest any newspaper that endorsed it—of course, my protests would involve writing letters and canceling subscriptions, not rioting and burning down buildings. There is a genuine social concern here, I think. Muslims represent a poor and oppressed underclass, and those cartoons represent a ruling establishment intentionally taunting them and basically flipping them off. They have cause to be furious!
So much for all those Pharyngulans attempting to defend PZ as some sort of equal-opportunity offender. Also, perhaps someone could explain to PZ that there isn’t exactly a shortage of wealth in the Muslim world. And while there is a global elite, I’m certain it’s not based in Copenhagen. I can’t help wonder, when canceling his subscription, would Associate Professor Myers have also called for the dismissal of the responsible cartoonist?
