Bravery, thy name is Dean Obeidallah:
Isn’t that is, like, so clever and stuff?
In response to anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller‘s controversial “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest, liberal comedian and commentator Dean Obeidallah announced a “Draw Your Favorite Islamophobe” contest this Saturday on his Sirius XM radio show.
“Do you know how to draw, even just stick figures? Do you hate bigotry? Then I hope you enter,” Obeidallah, who is of Palestinian-Italian descent, wrote on his website. “You can draw a cartoon or image of any person or group that is actively stoking flames of hate towards Muslims.”
Wow. Bold move, dude.
“Idiot” is right.
It’s a nice thought, but the notion that Obeidallah would get the point — of anything — is, sadly, wishful thinking.
