It was the same with Sony and kim jong un – the chattering wotnots up-in-arms, social mediocrites (my term) hurling themselves brain-first onto the latest wagon of crap to trundle past their bloated monitors.
This is free speech is it? Make some godawful mess of a movie portraying a country’s leader as some some sort of half-wit (even if he is) or worse, dig and dig and dig and twist and twist at a whole religion’s prophet? Sheer obvious bloody common-sense has to tell you this is plainly wrong.
Can you imagine if some unfriendly state had a magazine with cartoon imagery about Jesus Christ? What do you reckon eh? Street riots? Questions in Parliament, F15’s screeching their hell-fire across the desert as the President deplores this disgusting propaganda?
Because that’s what the Sony is doing, that’s what Charlie Hebdo is doing – pure Propaganda, and it’s “OK” because it’s “our side” doing it.
No-one can defend the violence of course, but equally no-one can defend the West’s right to keep pedaling this muck at the expense of other people’s religions.
