“These guys are dead,” says Mark Steyn, “because back in 2005, these Danish cartoons were published in an obscure Jutland newspaper, and a bunch of fanatics went bananas and started killing people over them. So a couple of publications on the planet, including mine in Canada, and Charlie Hebdo in Paris, published these cartoons…Le Monde didn’t, and the Times of London didn’t, and the New York Times didn’t, and nobody else did. And as a result, these fellows in Charlie Hebdo became the focus of murderous rage. If we’d all just published them on the front page and said ‘If you want to kill us, you go to hell, you can’t just kill a couple of obscure Danes, you’re going to have to kill us all,’ we wouldn’t have this problem. But because nobody did that, these Parisian guys are dead. They’re dead. And I’ve been on enough, I’ve seen enough events in Europe with less famous cartoonists than these who live under death threats, live under armed guard, have had their family restaurant firebombed — it’s happened to a Norwegian comedian I know — have come home and found their home burned, as a Swedish artist I know happened to. And all these people doing the phony hashtag solidarity, screw your phony hashtag solidarity. Let’s have some real solidarity — or if not, at least have the good taste to stay the hell out of it.”
He’s absolutely right. The only sane response to this kind of attack is for every publication to publish the cartoons.
“To honor those who’ve died for Free Speech,” says Bosch Fawstin, “I don’t raise my pen up in the air, I put it to paper and draw Mohammad.”
If we’d all just published them on the front page…….
Yep…. if everyone had done that then they couldn’t have done much about it. They might kill a few but it wouldn’t have stopped the others from publishing the cartoons. Since some thought it was better to appease the barbarians than to actually confront them together…. now anyone who does publish any cartoons depicting Mohammhead the barbarian pedophile are subject to being attacked or taken to kangaroo court cuz they got the islamists diapers twisted between their butt cheeks!
