The moral hysteria of Je suis charlie

http://mondoweiss.net/2015/01/moral-hysteria-charlie

Well I just cant wrap my mind around the idea that gutter cartoons and gutter journalism should be worshiped as the ultimate in free speech courage. Just because they have’ a right to do it make make it admirable.
Orwell’s world was only off by a couple of decades—but its here now.

I don’t see anyone morning the 3 innocent children that froze to death in Gaza and Syrian refugee camps. So I wont be mourning the not so innocent Charlies or the hypocritical supporters. ….not mourning ‘inciters’ of violence will be my anti terrorism stand.
