The Dog that didn't bark

I was not the only one it seems who found the entire Islamorwellian Opera regarding the “Cartoon Riots” somewhat curious.

After all, the "offensive" cartoons were published last September and the Islamofacists are rioting in the streets now. What took so long for them to get offended?

Gateway Pundit has done some investigation and comes up with this tidbit; The whole thing was a setup.

A radical Imam (an oxymoron) in Denmark went on tour with them all around the Middle East stirring the pot. Furthermore, he wasn’t content to use the Cartoons that were originally printed; he threw in 3 additional ones of dubious parentage that were far and away more inflammatory than the ones published in Jyllands-Posten originally. These were a departure from the somewhat tame treatment that the real ones had, these were seemingly designed to offend. This Imam has now tried to deflect attention away from the 3 frauds but this may have legs, IF the MSM is interested.

Real Cartoon published in Sept.

Fake Cartoon designed to offend.

If I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Katie Couric to breathlessly announce that the entire event has been stage managed.

In depth investigation (of non-Republican) scandals is not exactly their forte’.

None the less, I find the silence of the MSM on the pictures themselves as well as the

conspiracy to inflame Muslim public opinion to be troubling.

But then, if the MS were to actually do their jobs, the knewshound would be out of business.



Update; Der Spiegel (German Paper) is now publishing this info. I give the odds of it making it to the US MSM to be less than 10% however.

Update #2; Neandernews (a Blogger, go figure) has discovered that one of the 3 fakes was actually a photo from the French Pig-Squealing Championships in Trie-sur-Baise’s annual festival. The manufactured nature of this entire event is starting to become even more apparent.

Update #3; The Brussels Journal is on the case also.

Update #4; LGF reports Egyptian newspapers that published these cartoons without a peep back in October. There was no fuss when they were printed in the largest Arab daily in the Middle east, but suddenly they are. A guiding hand is at work on this.

Update #5; Here are the origional pics, as shown in the Newspaper. Case closed.
