Editorial cartoon is inflammatory

February 18, 2011
Estherville News

I just looked at today's paper [Feb.11], and was appalled by the cartoon on the Editorial page. Yes, the man on the right is labeled "Radical Islam," but the title of the cartoon is "Multiculturalism," and this is definitely not what multiculturalism is about. All the cartoon does is add to the anti-Islamic rhetoric which too often plagues our nation. It also defames all of the Islamic Americans who are loyal to the flag and to this nation. I believe in the freedom of the press, and the right to print such a cartoon; I am exercising my right to express my opinion when I believe something in the press is inflammatory, which this cartoon is.
