A lot of people have been asking me about this so I’m posting a few comments about it.
The right-wing maniac who killed a bunch of kids in Norway last week used one of my cartoons in the video he posted about his political beliefs. The still image below, about 2 1/2 minutes into his video, is the one in which my cartoon appears. Mine isn’t the only cartoon he employed; the entire video is one image after another, and a lot of editorial cartoons are used to support his point.
This is a larger view of the Bizarro cartoon he used and it is about the ridiculous lengths people will sometimes go to to be “politically correct” and “multicultural.” Evidently, the Norwegian Maniac has a huge problem with other cultures (read: Islam) and believes they are systematically dismantling European (read: white/Christian) traditions and culture in an effort to turn the entire world Muslim. As for myself, I agree with Christopher Hitchens: Religion Poisons Everything. All of the Big 3 are equally guilty. (That is NOT to say that all people who believe in one of the Big 3 religions is a violent whack-job. Far from it.)
And I just noticed that he is not only a bigot and deranged killer, but a copyright infringer. My signature and copyright are missing from the lower right corner. Perhaps that is why I have not heard from the Norwegian police.
I don’t agree with his political views and wish he hadn’t used my cartoon in his video, but he did so that’s that. Even more, I wish he hadn’t killed a bunch of kids.
