RoP Disciples Attack Cartoonist Lars Vilks

Color me shocked!

A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday as furious protesters interrupted his university lecture about the limits of free speech.

Lars Vilks told The Associated Press a man leaped from the front row and head-butted him as he was delivering his lecture at Uppsala University, breaking Vilks’ glasses but leaving him uninjured.

Vilks has faced numerous threats over his controversial drawing of Muhammad with a dog’s body, but Tuesday’s incident was the first physical assault directed against him.

Earlier this year U.S. investigators said Vilks was the target of an alleged murder plot involving Colleen LaRose, an American woman who dubbed herself “Jihad Jane,” and who now faces life in prison. She has pleaded not guilty.

Vilks said a group of about 15 people had been shouting and trying to interrupt the lecture before the incident at the university in Uppsala, about 40 miles (70 kilometers) north of Stockholm.

Some of them stormed toward the front of the room after the attack and clashed with security guards as Vilks was pulled away into a separate room, he said, describing the scene as “complete chaos.”

“A man ran up and threw himself over me. I was head-butted and my glasses were broken,” Vilks said before hanging up for questioning by police.

Remember this cartoon he drew (which I have to host on my Gallery site, since it kept getting wacked on Photobucket)?

Lars Vilks Muhammed cartoon

Remember when one of his sculptures was torched? And a bounty was place on his head? And got a specially trained guard dog for protection? He’s received death threats, and had to move, and have police protection. But, hey, don’t forget, Islam is a religion of peace. Perhaps those who do not practice the extremism could finally crack down on those that do.

Why does it seem that the majority of this type of violence is perpetrated by Leftists and members of the Religion of Peace?

    the left may dream about doing it to Rush BUT the one doing it over there wasn’t a leftist was it ? It was an islamist and they are part of the radical social conservative rightwing side. They hate socialism they hate women’s rights and hate abortion, so I guess Otter that you must be cheering them on. And Oughter ever think about changing your name to Weasel ? And lil- gee I wish, I am 20 pounds overweight at 210lbs but thanks for the compliment.
