Charlie Hebdo Prepares For Violent Backlash


Pages: 1 2

Nevertheless, the Obama administration has already succumbed to the Islamists’ pressure against free speech which offends them with its craven apologies and refusal to use jihad, Islamists and terrorism in the same sentence.  Meanwhile, this administration had no compunction in thumbing its nose at devout Catholics by forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs in violation of their core religious beliefs.

As I previously wrote, the Obama administration tried to have inserted into a press statement, issued September 12th by the UN Security Council on the “Attacks against U.S. Diplomatic Personnel” in Libya, language against the denigration of religions.  France, which does not even have legal protections of free speech as strong as our First Amendment and is now facing its own test of resolve against Islamist blowbacks to the satirical magazine caricatures, thankfully blocked this incredibly craven proposal from seeing the light of day.

When Obama visits the United Nations next week to deliver his annual bow to “world opinion” he will find a global consensus in the General Assembly compatible with the Islamists’ and his own worldview, but which is against America’s traditional notion of freedom of expression. In his press conference on September 19th in advance of next week’s love fest, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon displayed this consensus:

Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice, common purpose.  When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way.  So my position is that freedom of expression, while it is a fundamental right and privilege, should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act.

The First Amendment does not confine the protection of free speech to cases when it is “used for common justice, common purpose.” Freedom of speech is an inalienable individual right. Once the collective begins to curb this right in the service of some “common purpose” or sense of “common justice,” all of our freedoms are in jeopardy.  As George Washington said:

“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

    Obama had already signed an attack against free speech, it's called "Hate Speech Law" and he signed it at the U.N. on October 2009. I applaud the French paper but they're dwelling in dangerous territory because France has its own Hate Speech Law. Last year French journalist Eric Zemmour was charged & convicted for the words he used. America and Israel are the only 2 countries where freedom of speech still exist, or at least it did, prior to baffoon -0- dragging a filmmaker out of his home at midnight.

    Ban Ki Moon should be forced to see the thousands of youtube videos of imams calling jews devils, snakes, sons of apes and monkeys, and such as the viral TV presentation of 2005' that was viewed around the arab world, showing in that 'Ramadan' TV special series, religious jews, planning to and then killing a non jewish boy, to use his blood for their passover matzah. I guess that 'interpretation' by Islam according to muslims is permissible even though it's an utterly false cacophony of lies emblematic of vicious muslim jew hatred and worse- their own lust for blood slaughtering as the highest form of honoring their allah. No? Why doesn't the media show that sludge of vicious images, slander and hatred, amongst the thousands of others videos texts and teachings of 'normative' Islam?
    In fact let's go one further: Mohammed was the instigator of lying about the other religions, claiming they kept him out of their books and their religious learned kept him and his name out of their texts. That was of course after he spent the first 13 yrs as a failed preacher, extolling their virtues in recording their texts.
    Oh wait…. telling the facts and truth about Mohammed and Islam is the new hate speech.

      Mr. Goldberg, thanks for this accurate statement…..i often wonder why G-d gave these peoples the wealth of the world [Oil], and the small nation of Israel a lot of desert sand…..There is a reason in HIS great scheme of things….But lets just know that there is a Higher reason for all this Islamic turmoil…..Satan the great deceiver has been loosed on this earth to further HIS great purpose….And these insane islamist is his, Satan`s, vessel….May the Savior of Israel and His people hurry back to us…….jbk

  • zionit

    'Direct incitement'…? Isn't that what they say about Assanges' 'assault' victims? Honestly, Muslims, Jews, Christians, anybody…who would you want as your room-mate? Christ? Moses? Krishna? Buddha? ……or Mohammed?

    I've surfed the net repeatedly in order to see the Charlie Hebdo cartoon in question. I can't find any site where the people who run it have the guts to show the item. I haven't even found a website that is willing to provide a link to it. So much for freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the First Amendment.

    I guess the terrorists have won. We are NOT continuing our Western way of life as it was before 9/11; we are now, as far as I can tell, on record as being terror-fied.

    You can find the pictures of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons at Bare Naked Islam. She's got the guts!

      "Bare Naked Islam." Well, kudos to them for having more guts than anyone else on the internet including Fox News, Conservative News Daily, NBC, CBS, ABC News, CNN, or anyone else. May the Christian God bless them and keep them from harm.

      Maybe now we will see an end to people making the empty claim, "I may not agree with what you say but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." Now we know what they'll do, and it's not to the death.

      I also liked the story about the woman who was covered up to her forehead kicking the butt of the goon who was giving her the business for not being covered as much as he wanted her to be.

        ISLAM WANTS TO BE IN CONTROL OF THE WORLD AND WILL BE IF EVERY BODY RUNS AROUND PANDERING TO THEM.THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN MURDRERS GIVEN LICENSE TO KILL BY THE SCARED LEADERS OF OUR WORLD

    • tagalog

      "It isn't Islamophobia when they're really trying to kill you." Touche and LOL.

  • Robert

    I hope that this does come to trial in the world court, and gets more and more exposure. If it does, the whole world will see that what is called "blasphemy' is simply what it say in the koran, In the koran and the hadiths, is where the 'offensive" and "derogatory' passages are clearly and repeatedly expressed. This is good because light would be shed on the ugly purpose of this death cult. It will really illuminate the foundation for all the people who CANNOT and NEVER have read the koran, and had just been going on by what corrupt imams are telling them. LET THE TRIALS BEGIN IN EVERY COUNTRY! Lets see if the muzzys are ready to have their faith examined(which is a crime by islam), because to have these trials is in itself blasphemous

    • Kufar Dawg

      Geert Wilder's defense that he was merely telling the truth about islam was no defense in the Netherlands when he was arrested and charged with hate speech, or some similar BS.

    • Sunbeam

      We've to start somewhere to get things moving. We've to pursue it, each and everyone of us. Or are we going to sit back and do nothing. I hope leaders would come forward and initiate it, at least to start the ball rolling. While we may still have some time for this sort of preparation, time will not continue to wait upon us to work or to act and get things done. The problem here is Americans have been enjoying life for far too long, making money, and were too complacent now to sacrifice their time for this. They're no nationality if they do. Don't they realize what their nation is facing now? Unless Americans wake up, THEY ARE GOING TO REGRET THIS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

  • Stuart Parsons

    Why should anyone want to offend Islam ? Muhammad was the example of perfection. I know because a Muslim told me.

  • Jimi Belton

    I got to run, and make me a video of a red neck imam, sitting on the popper and he rips a few pages out of his koran to clean his rear….lol……..I am not afraid of these 2nd grade dropouts…

    Everybody living in New York must take the challange and assemble outside that temple of doom AKA the United Nations. Protest having your god given birthright from being cheated away from you. Bring as many people as you can, to show those petty imbeciles that we don't share their "common values" and woe betide them if they dare to take it away from us.
    Freedom of speech is meant to protect offensive speech, as it is the only one that needs protecting. PC or polite speech is in no danger from being banned.
    We are free Men, we have fought and bled for freedom for generations. How dare they come along and revisit our History and our values without our consultation or consent? Next thing you know, they'll be telling us "we are not free, we WERE never free and so shall it be forever more".
    This junta, I mean, administration has failed spectacularly the smell test. If it smells like fascism, looks like fascism and feels like fascism, then hey… I CAN believe it's not butter!

    • Sunbeam

      How very right you are. We'd to do something before they proceed to drown our free speech. Obama is the worst President ever to have been elected. He is a traitor, a betrayal and so is Hilary Clinton and the rest of his Congress Men. We need to assemble ourselves now to protest heavily the way our freedom of speech is being treated by our leaders. Obama is no American and he should be thrown out. It is dangerous to have him for another four years. He must learn his lesson or America will not forgive him.

  • Ghostwriter

    I'm sorry to say this but the film that the Muslims were rioting about doesn't make their religion look bad. They're doing a great job all on their own by all the violence that's been going on.

    • Sunbeam

      I agree. I don't see why they should caused such a big commotion such as like this.

  • jemaasjr

    The thing about Islam is that at its core it is basically a political system. Not offending Islam is the functional equivalent of picking out a political party and saying that it can not be offended, and then also, allowing the members of that party to be the ones who get to decide when they are offended. The net outcome in either case would be to shut down political speech, and so, terminate democracy.

  • Khushi

    Hats off to Charlie Hebdo.
    Inspite of being fire-bombed, they are courageous enough to print new mohammed cartoons.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    If the UN would ban Hate Speech, the Koran would be banned.
