We are all molly?

A lot of folks are being targeted for daring to speak their minds.

But the Tech Guy reminds you: Molly Norris is on a hit list, and asks why is her story being ignored?

She drew a Mohammed cartoon and was put on a hit list.

Norris, a Seattle cartoonist who drew for local publications like the Seattle Weekly and City Arts, found herself on the same al-Qaeda hit list as some of the ot rdered Hebdo artists.
On the advice of the FBI, she abandoned her life and work when Islamist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki called for her assassination in retaliation for posting a comic referencing Mohammed.

Wikipedia artical: it says a lot when the guy who put her on the hit list was involved with a lot of terrorism but managed to stay out of jail because of (essentially) legal trivia prevented his arrest.

And when he finally was put on a "kill at sight" list, his father sued, while the NYT, Time and the anti war left lamented he was targeted and killed without a trial.
