    22 Heartbreaking Cartoons From Artists Responding To The Charlie Hebdo Shooting

    • Cowgirl

      Brilliant stuff – I have shared these on Facebook.

      All except number 14 – Carlos Latuff does not at all show he is heartbroken for his fellow cartoonists nor for freedom of expression.
      He demonstrates he’s concerned only at the “collateral damage”
      But then again he does have a particular audience to cater to . . .

        Possibly agree with you there AMWG

        • Another Middleagedwhiteguy

          Thanks P, but there again I have become cynical of msm, and said Carlos is very much part of that.
          His cartoon was a kneejerk, finely calculated to be at first glance “about Charlie” but in truth is designed to reinforce a very different feeling.
          The message of this cartoon is “these gunmen were unwise, their actions will simply provoke more attacks on islam”

          Sorry Carlos, the attacks have all come FROM islam, and the provocateurs are the imams.

  • nervus

    Kill the scumbags.

  • Andy

    The pen is mightier than the sword. But not assault rifles, it appears

  • Another Middleagedwhiteguy

    And, looks like he stole the caption from another, more insightful cartoonist . .
    (see #16 in link below from pisces8284 .)

  • Andrew Gibson

    I don’t really get the negative reaction to this cartoon. It’s quite clever and has an clear anti-terrorist theme: extreme over reaction to imagined insults. Even the widened eyes of the murderer display a sense of bewilderment that he be seen as a criminal.
