Hello, Molly! (Molly Norris!)

Molly Norris is looking for a few good men. Where are they? Hello, Molly.

Molly Norris, American girl, cartoonist, nice person, kind of timid even for a girl. Molly Norris is living in fear of Muslims, some of whom, according to the FBI, are hoping to murder her. The FBI thinks Muslims will kill her if they can, and they have gotten her to abandon her life as a Seattle resident and cartoonist at a local newspaper, getting her so scared that she's abandoned her life as it was, and she is now in permanent hiding-- permanent that is till we stop this madness and go on the offensive against such people who would kill this girl because she upset them, so they say. We're talking about a girl who drew cartoons for a tiny paper in Seattle, Washington, a girl now hounded and hunted by Muslims who want to murder her. America. In America a girl has to flee from Muslims. Men, what are you doing? Where is "Seattle's Million Man March in Support of Molly Norris"? Men, where are you? Men! Where are you?

Mark D. Fefer, "On the Advice of the FBI, Cartoonist Molly Norris Disappears From View," Seattle Weekly. 15 Sept. 2010

Her work won't be in Seattle Weekly any more, or anywhere else.


The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, "going ghost": moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab. It's all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this summer, following her infamous "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" cartoon.

Men sit and sip lattes in Seattle while a girl flees from Muslims who will kill her. Men, where are you? Why aren't you marching to defend Molly? This is a girl at risk of murder. Men, where are you?

Hello Molly!
Well, Hello Molly!
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're looking swell, Molly,
We can tell, Molly,
You're still glowin', you're still crowin'
You're still goin' strong.
We feel the room swayin'
For the band's playin'
One of your old fav'rite songs from 'way back when

From me, Molly, if just for one night, I am a million men.

"Hello! Well, hello, Molly! You're looking swell, Molly."

My best wishes for you, and we'll have you back where you belong, Molly.

Dag Walker, Vancouver, Canada.

I think Molly is a little less liberal now. Molly, get your gun...'cause your limp latte loving "men" in Seattle won't help you. Find some good old boy in the deep west. There your mind shall be set free, and you will fear no more...

Dag said...

"Molly, get your gun." I like it. It's musical. It's just right. Thanks for that.

I think you have the best advice anyone could give to Molly and those gals like her. Those gals not like her? They'll find out that they really are. Then, go West, young lady!

This is an inexcusable thing. Why in the name of Sam Hill hasn't the FBI done some searching to arrest some people and charge them with conspiring to deprive someone of civil rights?

Dag said...

I'm with you there, Kepha, this is an inexcusable thing. I am angry, but more than that, I am ashamed. I cannot quite believe that our government and our own people, by which I mean all people of the greater Western tradition, do not rise up as one and put a stop to the terror that is Islam and its fellow, our Left intelligentsia. I'm nearly speechless because I look at our people, from Canada to India, to Argentina and through and around, and I do not see them fighting for the basic rights of one simple girl. If not for her, then who? If not now, ever? I am just ashamed.

Thank you for stopping in, Kepha. Always good to read your commentary.

YOU are a True Man, Dagald Walker.

Just like any other, though that seems to be in short supply these days. There are some serious good men in the world, Kepha, above, being one. Stogie always comes to mind as well. I don't know what accounts for these people, but they have a core manliness and moral that makes me proud to know them. I think that part of what they have is a religious foundation that I lack. I see this in my friends at Covenant Zone. I am blessed with having such friends.

And you and Sarah Palin too. (Assuming that she would like me, which I do.)

She would hold fast and stand strong with you - as will I!

This girl, and our nation at large, needs men in this nation at large to stand up and defend not just Molly Norris but all women and our nation at large. I just don't get it, seeing men who don't care to do a thing in the face of such an outrage. I think I just haven't met them. I would guess that most men are ready to defend everyone, no matter who, in the face of such a threat as this girl faces, but I just don't see it, at least yet.

Guy, where are you?

British Aid Worker Killed in Rescue

"In her latest job she was the only expatriate in the Jalalabad office of DAI, directing about 200 Afghan professionals and coordinating with Afghan ministries and local companies. Sensitive to local tradition, she always wore the long, loose tunic and trousers known as a shalwar kameez and covered her hair with a large scarf. “I’ve seen few people among Afghan and Muslim people like her,” said a man who worked with her who gave his name as Bakhtiar. “She was very kind, very helpful, a lovely lady, a very respectful woman.”

Steve O’Connor, the communications director for DAI, who spent several days visiting her in Jalalabad this year, said he was struck by her commitment. “She was a very quiet, very dignified, completely committed development professional,” he said. “She was very thoughtful, very understanding, very attuned to the local culture and her Afghan counterparts; she worked mostly with men, who respected her enormously."

You refer to Linda Norgrove, the Scottish aid worker murdered a few days ago by Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan. From what I know of her now she was a dedicated and brave humanitarian, which is not what I would write of Molly Norris.

However, Norris did not venture to a war zone, not at least of her own accord, and even as things stand we can't quite call Seattle a war zone. Norgrove did, and she is dead. Norris simply stayed home and lived a normal life in an American city like most Americans do. She did not court a murder fatwah, nor nothing of any sort related. Did she incite Muslims to threaten, and seriously so, murder? No. Norris went naively about her life as an ordinary American, garnering a death threat of this magnitude only because our culture does nothing to protect our women from this madness of jihad in our own land.

One knows in advance the risks involved in travelling to and living in Muslim lands. America is not one of them, in spite of what our president claims. America is not a Muslim nation, and we have not legitimate expectations of having to suffer shari'a in our homes, as Norris is suffering now.

Not only has our government and our disgusting intelligentsia for the most part abandoned Norris, worse, so have the men of this nation. Where are the millions of men in America? Why aren't they in the streets demanding safety for Norris and all women in our nation?

Norgrove took her measured chances and lost. Norris did no such thing, and she is hounded by Islam in the heart of our country. Where are the men? What's wrong with our men?
