I am Charles Martel: An offensive cartoon rebuttal

A cartoon blogger has an rebuttal here.

His warning: “Given that we are supposed to show our courage by being willing to display offensive cartoons, I have decided to post the following cartoon, which is offensive to both Muslims and to those who are mourning Stephane Charbonnier.”

  • Charles Martel was successful against people who wished to destroy France.

    the only thing i find funny about this strip is the fact that i dont get the joke or find offense even when it is translated. ?

      I will explain it to you. In the first two panels Charlie hebdo is denouncing Marine Le Pen, and a guy (don’t know his name) who recently wrote a novel about the muslim take over of Franc, while they try and point out the elephant in the room to him (Mo with a gun), then Charlie, who always took the politically correct position against “the Far Right” gets his head blown of by the Mo he never saw coming. I think it is brilliant and shows up the hypocrisy of the establishment who were all Charlie last wek and are back to charging people with thought crimes this week.
      Don’t feel bad about not getting it. From the comments at the linked sight not many there got it either. I think you have to understand who the people are to get it.

        The politicians who showed up to mourn Charb and the Jewish victims did the right thing, but they CONTRIBUTED to their deaths by HIDING JIHADISM behind slogans like ‘IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM’.

        At last they dropped that delusion! The MURDERS were actually MANDATED by Sharia law.

        Sharia commands the murder of anyone who verbally opposes Islam, since they are at war with Islam. The assassin of a blasphemer is not punished:

        “There is no indemnity obligatory for killing a
        non-Muslim (harbi) at war with Muslims.” -Reliance of the Traveller, o4.17, p.593 – (Sharia law manual)
        Sharia is clearly as Islamic as you can get.
