We need to be more open about Islamic terror

In the days since the Charlie Hebdo office was attacked, and twelve of its staff murdered by Islamic terrorists, I have been reading apologia over the attack – the most disgusting line is of the “I am not Charlie Hebdo because I don’t seek to offend” persuasion, where columnists pontificate about how the paper should have refrained from publishing its “blasphemous” and “offensive” cartoons and articles; as insidious, are the posts about how one ought to stay safe, and protect one’s employees, by not publishing content that could incite an attack, a stance which many senior editors have taken, either for the love of being different, or – less forgivably – for the love of peace.

First of all, has there been anything as uninteresting as a politically correct satirical paper?

    It is interesting – in a world of “Je suis xxx” that there are a few Canadians – of all people – including yourself and Kathy who actually did either publish the original cartoons or defended with treasure, if not blood, the right of Ezra and the Western Standard to do so. In the process taking down S. 13 and shutting up the misguided dimwits who wanted “being offended” to be criminalised.

    And we won.

    But the chickenshits at the CBC, the National Post, the Globe and Mail are still incapable of printing the news.

    • I can’t help but note how anemic both Je Suis Charlie rally’s were in Toronto.

      The turnouts for both were tiny, but expectedly so given how Multicultural Toronto has become.

    Anyone who doesn’t support Charlie Hebdo supports the terrorists.

      CH is an example of the leftist enabler of Islam.
      I do not support CH, any more than I support Larry Flint or XTra.

    It’s pretty much what has become of Private Eye.
