Nicke Gillespie of Reason Weighs in on the South Park Muhammad/Episode 201 Death Threat


by the Left Coast Rebel

That lucky guy. Eric Dondero over at Libertarian Republican got an exclusive with Nick Gillespsie from Reason and the South Park free speech issue. Nick Gillespie's response simply nails the crux of the matter and it's nice to hear him 'going there' and calling a spade a spade. Nick Gillespie:

To say that semi-veiled death threats against the creators of a cartoon show that spoofed Mohammed demonstrates the need for an Islamic reformation is self-evident. The threats, especially the invocation of the brutal murder of Theo van Gogh by a religious nutbar, should shame all serious Muslims the same way the pope's behavior in sexual-abuse scandals shames true Catholics. Whether religious or secular, ideologies that try to suppress dissent and free expression through violence always lose, and always make themselves more abjectly pathetic on the road to the dustbin of history.

  1. "Islamic reformation"

    Islam doesn't need a Luther, it needs a Nietzsche.
