If the attack on “Charlie Hebdo” was anti-semitic, so was a cartoon that one artist published in the Charlie Hebdo magazine a few years ago that got the artist fired.
After the magazine Hara-Kiri was shut down by the French government after satirizing the exaggerated mourning of De Gaulle two days after his funeral (1970!), the same people simply renamed it Charlie Hebdo and kept publishing.
You can call the attack on the kosher restaurant anti-semitic, but what do you call the blasphemous anti-Christian caricatures and the blatant anti-Islamic caricatures?
In France there are “hate speech” laws that make Charlie Hebdo’s caricatures of Christians and Muslims illegal, but they are only enforced against “anti-semitism”.
Among the sea of the reported three million demonstrators for “free speech” with “Je suis Charlie” buttons (how could they print that many in only a week?), a policeman ordered one of them to remove his “Je suis Kouachi” button (the name of one of the killers).
Only 48 hours after people marched for “free speech” in the streets of Paris, France opened criminal proceedings against comedian Dieudonné for his speech they said was “defending terrorism”. This was only one of 54 new such cases for “condoning terrorism”.
In a land that imprisons you for expressing banned opinions (and facts too!), these heads of state stand with the leaders that imprison you for saying it out loud?
How long before they ban statements like “Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven”? They are already working on that by the way and they have already muzzled teachers in taxpayer/theft-funded government indoctrination centers even in the U.S.
How long before they warn cops to be on the lookout in America for dangerous people with “Ron Paul” bumper stickers on their cars? –Oh, they already did that! Five years ago!
And try to publish an ad in the States with pictures from Deir Yassin after the Irgun massacre of the entire town. You think anybody will publish it?
These “conservative” neo-cons, children of Trotskyite Communists, never want to cut back welfare programs, and they always want to keep the US in war. They are both programs designed to bankrupt the country’s economy and mold its culture into forming pliant obedient subjects.
