Caroline Glick Explains What's At Stake Re the Texas 'Toon Attack and Subsequent Media Takedown of Pamela Geller

Glick writes:
When a group says that society as a whole must constrain its freedoms so its members can feel comfortable, it crosses a boundary that cannot be crossed. So too, when a group demands that society choose between it and another group that is not issuing a similar ultimatum, it is crossing the line. In other words, any group that demands a limit on liberty and rights of others is harming the foundations of liberal society. If a society wishes to remain liberal, it must constrain such groups.
I can't tell you how disappointed I am with those on the right--O'Reilly, Coren, et al--who blamed Geller for the actions of the jihadis, thereby joining the left in embracing the path of least resistance (i.e. rank dhimitude).

Update: Since drawing Motoons are off the table, we can always delude ourselves into thinking we're free by mocking Mormons.
