Freedom of Expression as it's practiced

From Astute Blogger:

WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE …. on the part of artists and writers!?

Has the WGA or PEN (or any other artists’ or writers’ organizations) voiced ANY support for the Denmark?

NOPE. They are as silent about this afront to freedom of expression as they were about the murder of Theo van Gogh. They SHOULD be as supportive to Denmark as the dozen or so European newspaper which have reprinted the cartoons in a fabulous display of solidarity with Denmark.

This blogger happens to be a former official of the WGA and PEN. That they are both silent on this issue does not suprise me in the slightest. Much of their membership is probably not even aware of it.
