Today the Washington Post buried on pg. A23 beneath the small headline:
Sixth Night of Youth Violencethe following story:
Groups of youths torched schools and cars in a sixth consecutive night of violence across Denmark, mostly in immigrant neighborhoods, police said Saturday. Forty-three people were arrested.I posted Plot to Kill Danish Cartoonist: AP Spins Readers which concerned: 1) what Danish police say was a well-organized plot by Muslim extremists to kill the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard; and 2) the AP's attempt to mask the fact that most news organizations in the West reacted to the extremists threats by promptly and loudly promising they wouldn't publish even one Danish cartoon image of Muhammad.
Police said they weren't sure what triggered the spate of vandalism in cities including Copenhagen, Aarhus, Ringsted and Slagelse.
Some observers said immigrant youths were protesting perceived police harassment but suggested that reproduction of a cartoon of the prophet Muhammad in Danish newspapers Wednesday may have intensified the unrest.
More than a dozen newspapers reprinted a cartoon that sparked massive protests in Muslim countries two years ago -- a gesture of solidarity after police revealed an alleged plot to kill the cartoonist.
On Saturday, 10 Danish lawmakers canceled a trip to Iran after its parliament demanded an apology for the reprinting.
I also published a follow-up post: Danish paper reprints Muhammad cartoons following death plot.
The Washington Post was among the first of America's large MSM news organizations to assure Muslims and its own journalists it wouldn't publish any image of the Danish cartoons.
At the same time, WaPo let readers understand it would continue to fearlessly exercise its right to publish Abu Ghraib photos and anything else, however badly it might reflect on America, and however much it might upset our government.
If you're an informed citizen, you expect almost all major MSM news organizations to act as WaPo has.
What about JinC?
Well, I want to make a gesture of solidarity with Kurt Westergaard (now in hiding), the other Danish cartoonists, the Danish newspapers which published and republished the cartoons, and those few other MSM news organizations which have had enough courage and care for press freedom to publish one or more of the cartoons.
So here below you see Westergaard's cartoon, which I was able to access thanks to a link provided at Michelle Malkin's blog:
