They tend to do this because there's a set template for this kind of stuff, so they don't have to be creative or original. Also, it will keep them in the good books with the PC powers that be (thereby ensuring long term employment) and they won't suffer any negative consequences at all bar a few outraged e-mails from viewers.
These clowns (and I use the term loosely) were always pretty gutless of course. But after the slaughter of a bunch of cartoonists at French magazine Charlie Hebdo a year ago they're even more so.
After 9/11, he would say how sad he felt for the "innocent victims" of that terrible day, "all nineteen of them". Almost everyone saw what I, through the character, was getting at. But at least one audience member didn't. After the gig he paid out on me because he thought that I agreed with the character and was thereby condoning what the terrorists did! I tried to explain that I was mocking that very attitude. He didn't buy it. You see what you want to see, as the saying goes ...
Here are the THREE (3) #CharlieHebdo caricatures under the SAME HEADING. So something connects them, right? #CONTEXT pic.twitter.com/D9GqiB5PcY— Ystri Ya (@ystriya) January 13, 2016
2) No to #refugees. Does #CharlieHebdo believe this? NO! Never has! You're seeing the vile mind of someone who does. pic.twitter.com/XqCpckVvjQ— Ystri Ya (@ystriya) January 13, 2016
If you're going to ignore that context you completely distort the message. I think this tweet sums it up well:3) "Since the #CharlieHebdo attacks, we don't draw the same way anymore." "We do self-portraits" pic.twitter.com/ryzYEQBxyg— Ystri Ya (@ystriya) January 14, 2016
Getting all outraged about it therefore becomes a massive own goal. Needless to say, there are heaps of them being scored all over the world.That's like quoting mining someone who said, 'I would never say "Rape is ok."', and reducing it to 'Rape is ok'. https://t.co/p5BWMb17yh— Lalo Dagach (@LaloDagach) January 13, 2016
And even if Charlie Hebdo is trying to offend Muslims with their most recent offering, their cartoonists certainly don't deserve to die for it. Yet this is what a lot of people are wishing for. "These fascists deserve a repeat of what happened a year ago!" is a very popular sentiment.
Of course you'd expect lots of Muslims to believe this. But heaps of those caring sharing, compassionate and "pro-freedom of speech" liberals and lefties do too. Depressing that so many of them don't see where all this is leading us.
