Double Standard

What happens when the Daily Illini publishes...

...a stereotypical cartoon about Muslims that is drawn by a Danish cartoonist: the Opinions editor and Editor-in-Chief are suspended.  The Opinions editor is invited back, but declines, while the Editor-in-Chief is fired.

...a stereotypical cartoon about Jews that is drawn by a Daily Illini regular:

...a stereotypical description of Christians that is written by a Daily Illini regular: nothing.

So, class, you can see the abiding lesson for today.  Only antagonize those who will not fight back.
