UPDATE: Our guy in the MSM Jules Crittenden has an update on Bobblehead mania.
This is a brilliant example of why we will triumph over the medieval obscurantists of Al Qaeda. We know that mockery is the sweetest way to take someone down a few notches. Michelle Malkin points out the latest heretical hilarity.
(hat tip-Andrew Bostom via NY Daily News). Introducing...Bobblehead Rage:
A ceramic bobblehead doll of the Prophet Muhammed - created to resemble the infamous caricature published by a Danish newspaper - is being hawked online for $22.99 a pop by an ex-Marine.
The unapologetic creator, Timothy Ames, 28, said the bobblehead is similar to "dashboard Jesus" figurines that can be stuck with adhesive to flat surfaces. "I thought, 'If they flipped out over some cartoons what will they do with a dashboard Muhammed?'" Ames said from his home in Hawaii.
But Islamic experts are not amused, saying the bobbleheads could anger Muslims, whose religion strictly prohibits depictions of the prophet.
"No depiction of the prophet, even if it is positive, should be made ever - and certainly not one as ridiculous as the bobblehead Muhammed," said Zvi Ben-Dor Benite, an assistant professor at New York University. "I don't think it's about freedom of speech. This is the freedom to insult, which he shouldn't be doing."
I wonder what the good professor thinks we are free to do? Bravo to Timothy Ames for doing the right thing and not only showing the world we decide what freedoms we will exercise, but making a few bucks in the process. Now that's American.
