Bloody Cartoons – The Film

Posted on: August 17, 2009

Yale University came into news spotlight recently due to their decision not to include the so-called mohamed cartoons in a book on the same subject. The book was to be a definitive study of the events that unfolded following the publication of the cartoons by a Danish paper. The book is due to come out this Fall and is titled Cartoons That Shook the World. Many observers were surprised by the decision to NOT print the drawings in the book,  given the distance in time and memory.

Wrote NYT:

Reza Aslan, a religion scholar and the author of “No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam,” is a fan of the book but decided to withdraw his supportive blurb that was to appear in the book after Yale University Press dropped the pictures. The book is “a definitive account of the entire controversy,” he said, “but to not include the actual cartoons is to me, frankly, idiotic.”

While most conservative voices felt that Yale went Yellow, at least a few liberals, including the Friendly Athiest, actually used to occasion to republish the cartoons, just as a matter of principle.

The book’s writer Jytte Klausen was frustrated because all she wished for was ‘to have a discussion’ about the matter. Yale on the other hand went so far as to excise all images of the prophet, including those by the great masters Dante, Botticelli, Rodin and Blake. How about that for self-censorship, by using as a cover a panel of two dozen experts!

“We need to calm down and look at this carefully”, NYT quotes Ms. Kausen as saying.

Well, here is a free movie that does just that.

“Bloody Cartoons” is a terrific free movie that looks at the genesis and outgrowth of this entire episode very calmly and dispassionately. It’s a long one, but worth the time.

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, th […]
