Title: Satirists Are Not Immune To Satire
Written By: JaredMilne
Date: Thursday, February 26 at 07:59
The tragic murders of many of the artists who produced the satirical French magazine “Charlie Hebdo” have revived debates around free speech and what’s considered acceptable to publish. Some critics have said that cartoons like the ones Charlie Hebdo published on Islam were offensive and merely fed into Islamophobia with crass insults. They support the refusal by certain media to re-publish the cartoons. Others say that the cartoons are an important example of free speech, and that a refusal to publish them is giving in to terrorist threats.

If we don't have freedom of speech, we don't have freedom! I was just listening to the Minister of Public safety, this Blaney idiot, say that they want to 'shut down those internet sites that promote hatred and or extremism.' His rationale? "Terrorism begins with words." Yep, he said that. What he's really saying is, 'We're gonna shut down free speech!' This is where we're at folks. Good thoughts in the little minds of the controllers are OK. Bad thoughts are not permitted and punishable. So much for the Charter of Rights and Freedoms stating that you can express yourself in any way, no matter how unpopular, where the content of what is expressed is irrelevant. No more free speech folks. The fascists have spoken. Their brand of terrorism against humanity is confirmed by their words!
