The massacre at the Paris offices of the venerable satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has been met with near-universal condemnation, but a growing chorus of self-appointed arbiters of good taste are going public, following up cursory denunciations of the murders with caveats that Charlie Hebdo is a “provocative,” “racist,” “Islamophobic,” “homophobic” publication who brought much of its trouble on itself.
Richard Seymour at Jacobin makes this point most succinctly in the final paragraph of his article:
“No, the offices of Charlie Hebdo should not be raided by gun-wielding murderers. No, journalists are not legitimate targets for killing. But no, we also shouldn’t line up with the inevitable statist backlash against Muslims, or the ideological charge to defend a fetishized, racialized “secularism,” or concede to the blackmail which forces us into solidarity with a racist institution.”
Earlier in the piece, Seymour explains why he presents no evidence, or even argument, that Charlie Hebdo is a “racist institution”:
“I will not waste time arguing over this point here: I simply take it as read that — irrespective of whatever else it does, and whatever valid comment it makes — the way in which that publication represents Islam is racist.”
Yeah, don’t waste your time coming up with more mealy-mouthed excuses for a gutter-dwelling, violent, ideologically-based ‘religion’ that wants us dead.
Mia Farrow fears a ‘backlash against muslims’. The entire muzzie ‘culture’ is engaged in an all-out war against Western civilization but this scrunt is worried about a ‘backlash’.
A drooling idiot from the Catholic League named Bill Donohue blames the Charlie Hebdo staff for their own deaths and says that “muslims have a right to be angry”. Well, guess what, Bill. I’ve been pretty fucking angry the last 13 years over the attack on this country by muslim zealots that killed close to 3000 people. We have a right to be angry. We should wipe all of them off the face of the earth.
CNN’s leading jihadist Christiane Amanpour calls muzzie terrorists “activists”.
Another CNN assclown Chris Cuomo referred to the black French muslim terrorist who killed innocent people and took hostages in a Kosher grocery store as “African-American”. Yes, the leftwing media is really that reflexively dense.
WaPo hack Eugene Robinson says it’s a good thing this happened in France, because if it happened in America, “we would expect to have a lot more carnage”. What the fuck did the muzzie terrorists use to mow down more than a dozen people? Verbal retorts? They don’t give a shit about gun control. Gawd forbid that anyone—especially Americans—should be armed IAW the Second Amendment.
Piers Morgan, the quintessential pompous prick says, ‘hey guess what’?, ‘France had 540 fewer gun-related deaths than American this week’ He’s so thoroughly convinced of his own moral superiority that he fails to realize he’s a reprehensible douche. This is also the same hypocritical piece of shit that has armed security protecting his home.
MSNBC equates the Charlie Hebdo massacre with Jerry Falwell’s lawsuit against Hustler Magazine. I must have missed the part where Falwell entered the Hustler offices and sprayed machine gunfire.
And the cowardice continues:
The Telegraph blurs Mohammad cartoon while reporting on Paris shooting.
The New Yorker played it safe and struck a pose with an illustration of the Eiffel Tower with a pencil on top. It would be so much better if the media showed real unity and published the Charlie Hebdo covers uncensored. But they don’t have the guts.
The New York Times initially reported on the proselytizing by the muzzies during the Charlie Hebdo attack, but quickly deleted it because Gawd knows telling the truth is ‘Islamophobic’.
Condescending pouf David Brooks says those Charlie Hebdo guys were “killed at the kiddie table”. Those people were slaughtered for the same freedom of speech that Brooks enjoys without fear.
Comedian Gavin McInnes weighs in:
I get why journalists are scared of offending Muslims. I just don’t get why they’re journalists.
