‘Draw Mohammed’ Contest Winner Will Be Added to SPLC ‘Hate’ List

Posted on | May 12, 2015 | 117 Comments

Attacked by Islamic terrorists and listed by the SPLC:

Bosch Fawstin, a former Muslim who won the Muhammad cartoon contest at the Texas free speech event attacked by two gunmen Sunday, will soon be added to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) list of hate groups.
Mr. Fawstin won $12,500 in prize money at the event, sponsored by Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), for a drawing that showed a sword-wielding prophet in a turban shouting, “You can’t draw me.” In reply, a cartoon bubble portrayed the artist as writing, “That’s why I draw you,” Reuters reported.
The SPLC, which already includes AFDI on its annual list of U.S. hate groups, plans to add the artist to its 2016 report, Heidi Beirich, who leads SPLC’s Intelligence Project, told Reuters on Monday.
Ms. Beirich said Mr. Fawstin would have been listed before Sunday’s attack, but the center did not know his location. The organization has since learned that his website is registered in New York City, Reuters reported.
“He’s like the artist of the movement,” Mr. Beirich said, calling his website “virulently ugly.”
“His views, they are hate views,” she added.

Much like being sued by Brett Kimberlin, having your name on the SPLC’s hate list is becoming a badge of honor.

    Rogue is an Oregon brewery, and produces one of my benchmark beers, Dead Guy Ale.

    No, I think the actual Victim Hierarchy is:

    Black trumps woman.
    Gay trumps black.
    Muslim trumps all.

    Just tell them that the SPLC is designated a left wing hate group.

    By me.

    Probably because nobody tried to kill him for it.

    You know, all those right wing haters out there, deliberately not murdering their opponents. Just to make the SPLC look inconsistent.

    Isn’t Morris Dees’ tag line: “Why so serious?”

    A brand for the less animated amongst us, eh?

    Their website shows all of their varieties. It’s a hoot.

    You have to admit sheeple is just such a perfect term to define some people.

    If you get a chance, try Ruth by Hair of the Dog. It might taste a little odd at first, but about half a bottle in, your perception of the flavors suddenly changes — and then it reminds me of Dead Guy in a way.

    You don’t need the img tag, since Disqus looks for image types automatically. Same with YouTube videos, it’ll translate the simple link. You can also upload an image using the icon at the bottom left of the posting window, but gifs won’t play if you do it that way.

    Thanks. I’ve been on the Internet since 1994 and I’m still not very good at it. LOL
