And the winner is....French, Iranian artists top at Holocaust cartoon contest

Zeon was awarded a cash prize of $12,000 in the cartoon section and Forughi received a cash prize of $7,000 in the caricature category during a ceremony held at the Art Bureau on Monday.

Speaking at the ceremony, the secretary of the competition, Masud Shojaei-Tabatabai said, “One of the subjects we asked cartoonists to focus on was why the Western countries arrest any scholar who doubts the Holocaust while they put no limit on freedom of speech in other categories.”

“The other subject was why Palestinians should pay for the Holocaust… we are concerned about the modern Holocaust that is being sought by the Zionist regime, which is known as a child killer government,” he added.

In the cartoon section, the second prize went to Jitet Koestana from Indonesia while the third prize was presented to Mahmud Nazari from Iran.

3. Just goes to show they lied about the premise of the "contest."

It was always such a "joy" watching people crow about "it's just free speech." Oh, the fucking irony!

4. But nobody will call for the cartoonists' assassination.

Sure their drawings offend, insult, and piss people off just like so many other cartoons. But these illustrators won't need to fear for their lives as a result.

5. Well, I guess they made their point.

Especially because those cartoons would be protected speech in the US under the 1st Amendment, and no one is calling for the cartoonists to be put to death.



Or something.

7. Or something, for sure.

The irony is disgustingly palatable.

10. WOW!

I am surprised he didn't enter that monstrosity into the contest; surely would have been a winner. Seems this "arguments" are quite popular with some as I have heard them in a variety of places, including here. It is fascinating, in a grotesque way, to see this type of talent used to promote hate, bigotry and lies.
