That's going to be a lot of white space.

If the suspects are going to trial, which no doubt attracts a lot of media attention, then obviously nothing is getting rewritten or erased. Sounds more like you're trying to sell more papers. I guess you can't get away with anti Semitic caricatures of Moses and BIbi or Auschwitz , so reach for the next most incendiary thing, right? You're not going to sell papers in France reprinting Vichy era photos.

The Islamic extremists who murdered and supplied/aided said murderers, or the people who published an insensitive cartoon?

Hey that's all we need, an islamic extremist attack to let the douchebag and chief pivot from civil unrest and incompetent pandemic response.
 
2020-09-01 3:10:08 PM  
Remember when this was the most important story out there?

Seems almost quaint these days.

Yup, religious nutjobs are major assholes. And theres millions of them

"History cannot be rewritten nor erased" but it certainly can be repeated, so good luck with that.

Somebody just looked at France, decided that there is not enough chaos and violence there after the yellow jackets protests died out and said: "Let's push that button and see what will happen".

It's not really incendiary unless you're already a fundamentalist terrorist. If you're not Muslim there's no prohibition against creating images of god and the vast majority of Muslims wouldn't react by committing mass murder.

Religion is not a race.

But yes they can be seen as islamaphobic and bigoted.

If it's mocking terrorists I really don't care.

Fairly sure one could see their collective big brass pair from space.

It shouldn't be, but it very well can and has been.

Time to order a new sticker.

Contemporary academics define racism to include Islamophobia. How Islamophobia manifests in Europe is also particularly based on skin color. If it's a good enough word for the folks who actually study this stuff for a living, it's good enough for me. The cartoons are clearly racist.

Both? Obviously the murdering is way worse, but that doesn't mean Hebdo aren't shiatty edgelords.

Hedbo are pieces of shiat and I'm sorry we had to spend any time feeling any concern for them whatsoever.

Must be extreme shiatty edgelords if Fark is calling them out for being shiatty edgelords.

If you're murdering people over offensive content half of us should be dead already.

The idea that papers should be scared to post stuff that mocks any religion speaks to the major problems with such religion and its followers.

Islam is in dire need of reform and modernization.

You have every right to be outraged by those images, but the murders of 17 people over those images have destroyed any good will one might have otherwise had. Don't like them? Tough shiat. They should publish them in every issue.

Good for them on not forgetting their principles. Don't do something even if it is legal, just because somebody else might take extreme offense to it? That doesn't mean you go out of your way to poke the bear but you also don't willingly give up your own rights due to another person/group taking extreme issue with it, that would be a very dangerous idea to a society over the long haul.

Some people might say they're deliberately making themselves a target and that wouldn't be entirely wrong but the way you establish that you have freedom of navigation is by conducting freedom of navigation exercises. You establish your ability to do something by doing it.

Yeah just study it out.


Look man, you're putting people's offensive cartoon on equal footing with their murders. If you think Hebdo are kinda douchey for putting the cartoon out, then you can say that, but they suffered a massively disproportionate response and it's OK to give them some support on that count.

Look up thread, genius. They are slime. I hate slime. The fact that they are dead? I don't care. They're murderers are going to prison, which is right, but none of us should have mourned these fascists' deaths any more than we should mourn Trump when he finally kicks it.

Which is also understandable. They're garbage. Garbage doesn't deserve to be murdered, but nobody feels as bad about it as when people who aren't garbage get murdered.

Nuance.

For what reason do you believe the writers of a satirical cartoon magazine are facists? Please show your work.

Note: making fun of fundamentalist religious kooks is not the definition of facism

Offensive or not offensive, the problem is that they were doing something legal in France and people got killed for it. It is one thing if it happened in Saudi Arabia where they'd knowingly be breaking the law, you can make the case that such a law shouldn't exist but you abide by the standards of where you are and they were in France.
