In this article the author criticizes the writer Stanley Fish who, in an article on the op-ed page of "The New York Times," wrote an article commenting favorably on the riots over cartoons that many Muslims considered blasphemous. In his piece Fish compares liberals unfavorably with fundamentalist mobs. The author debunks Fish's notion that the violence of the protests was justified, and is to be preferred to liberalism, which, Fish claims, holds nothing sacred enough to resort to violence.
