Who in their right mind would consider becoming a political cartoonist these days?As Milo Yiannopoulos said in a recent video, political correctness can kill. He was referring to people not speaking up about child sex gangs and suspicious terrorist activity for fear of being labelled racist. I am referring to the fact that drawing a cartoon can actually result in death.
When cartoonists are slaughtered for what they draw, the politically correct brigade always support the actions of the murderers. Being politically correct they are very careful to first say that the slaughter was wrong and terrible but then they always add the word “but” to the sentence.They talk about provocation and use the old, “she was asking for it,” argument.
Charlie Hebdo has already paid the ultimate price for drawing cartoons that hurt some people’s feelings. This time, they are facing legal jihad and this time, it may destroy their magazine for good. Political correctness may not kill in this case but if the court case is successful it could bankrupt Charlie Hebdo.
