What exactly is so "offensive" about this?
As I understand it, the five daily prayers Muslims perform do in fact mention Allah quite a bit
. And, goodness knows, we've never seen any political figures defaced with cartoon devil horns
and a beard
before. Nope, never. Who would do such a dastardly thing? Who would intimate that sort of pure, unmitigated evil? Who would make light
of such wickedness?
This is manufactured offense, faux-outrage on the reporter's part, and in any event it would annoy me. But to equate campaign staffers harmlessly (if childishly) blowing off steam by graffitotagging newspaper photos of the opposition, in private, with vandals spray-painting swastikas on a synagogue? That's just disgusting.
