Charlie Hebdo

Catastrophic career choice number one: Political Cartoonist

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.

Cartoonist Renald Luzier is overcome with grief during a Press conference to launch the first issue of Charlie Hebdo after the terrorist attack that murdered all his fellow cartoonists

We all know how extremist Islamic terrorists  silenced the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by slaughtering  almost all of its cartoonists.  For a short period of time the remaining cartoonist continued to bravely mock Islam but eventually the strain was too much and they made a public declaration that Islam would be the only religion that the magazine would not satirise.

In an Islamic country that the media have repeatedly  held up as an example of moderate Islam, you would not expect a satirical magazine to be silenced.  In Turkey  however, in the wake of the failed coup by the army whose role is to keep  mosque and state separate, that is exactly what has happened.

Cartoon removed by media organisation because it offends Muslims

warning_offensive_1024x1024

WARNING: If you would be offended by viewing a cartoon that mocks ISIS do not click “view more”. If seeing a cartoon that shows an ISIS terrorist praying in the Muslim way offends you please do not look over the break. If satire based on the evolution of man but reversed in order to show an ISIS terrorist as the lowest of the low offends you please do not look over the break. If making a link between ISIS, the Islamic religion and Islamic prayer offends you please do not read any further.

The following (after the break) editorial cartoon has been removed by the Chicago Tribune due to complaints made by Muslim leaders. Titled “De-evolution”, the image by Michael Ramirez parodied the iconic “March of Progress” illustration (below), which shows human evolution as a series of figures evolving from apelike ancestors to modern humans standing erect.

In a letter of complaint to the newspaper, Ahmed Rehab of the terrorist-linked and Saudi-Arabia-funded group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) said…

“It makes it as if ISIS is just your average, mainstream Muslim who’s prostrating in prayer  – something we all do – as opposed to what is unique and problematic about them,” 

“The cartoon does a great disservice to Muslims and promotes further Islamophobia,”

What he failed to mention was that the ISIS terrorist was clearly drawn as a terrorist because of his clothing and weapon. He actually has the word ISIS on his back in case there was any doubt as to whom the cartoonist was referring. The praying man was clearly not a moderate Muslim. ISIS terrorists do pray and they consider themselves Muslim even if other Muslims that they slaughter do not. Like it or not, it is relevant to portray one as praying since they justify all their atrocities as being for Allah and they claim that their actions are sanctioned by the Koran and Hadith.

No doubt with the slaughter of the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo in mind, the Chicago Tribune were quick to remove the cartoon from their website.

“We understand the deep concerns about Michael Ramirez’ cartoon and have moved quickly to publish responses from Islamic leaders and other readers that reflect those concerns,”

-John McCormick, Editorial Page Editor

In a free country both the cartoon and the letters of complaint would be allowed to stand side by side. America, sadly, is no longer the land of the free. At least, not where the Chicago Tribune are concerned.

They may have stopped drawing Muhammad but Charlie Hebdo still has something to say

You could be forgiven for thinking that after having most of their staff slaughtered by Muslim terrorists, Charlie Hebdo would be given a free pass when it comes to their bias about Islam. After all, the few remaining staff alive after the massacre were so badly affected that they committed to never draw Muhammed again. This decision was not because they thought drawing Mohammed was wrong but because of fear. It is quite understandable that an organisation that had their staff slaughtered for the crime of drawing a cartoon would have a very dim view of the religion that spawned such intolerance. Despite this, critics have not held back from savaging a recent article in the magazine.

Ten cartoons that the censors do not want you to see

TICP (The Israel Cartoon Project) is a platform for the best Israeli cartoonists and pro-Israeli cartoonists from around the world. It was created with one simple goal in mind; to tell the rest of the world the truth about Israel.
The BDS is an example of one of the many global Anti-Israeli Campaigns that Israelis and Jews face world wide. TICP was created as a creative new approach to addressing these kind of campaigns.

TICP like Israel is heavily outnumbered. This morning when I first received notification of the 10 cartoons on my Facebook feed the link to the very first cartoon on buzzfeed had been removed by buzzfeed. The only version I could find on the Internet was this very small one.

This is the TICP cartoon removed by Buzz feed almost immediately after it was posted on Facebook

This is what TICP is up against and it is why I want to spread the cartoons as far and wide as possible. Cartoonists are being silenced all over the world. In Paris they were massacred, in America they are forced to go into hiding because of death threats and on the internet entities like facebook, twitter and buzzfeed remove their cartoons.Western news organisations refuse to publish cartoons out of fear.

One year on from Charlie Hebdo – has anything improved?

“The killer is still out there” – Charlie Hebdo 7 January 2016

Charlie Hebdo is still alive, still printing, still breaking taboos and the main target of its satire is still organised religion.

“I don’t think anything changed since 7 January, except the emptiness we are suffering,” said the magazine’s managing editor, Gerard Biard. “We miss the people, the friends, the talent [but] we try to maintain the same spirit. I think we managed to.”

What’s changed?

Face of the day

1005895_10205107436983948_5722450369390562395_n

I honour todays’s face of the day, Stephane Charbonnier, a year after his brutal murder at the hands of Islamic terrorists. The media blamed him and his fellow journalists for what was done to them. They said that they incited the violence by offending Muslims. Now a year later, other Islamic terrorist attacks inside France have blown holes in the argument of incitement. It is growing more and more difficult for Islamic apologists to blame the victims of Islamic terrorism.

It is well past time the MSM acknowledged that Islamic terrorism is the military arm of the ideology of Islam. It is well past time the MSM called the Muslim Brotherhood out for what it is the propaganda and legal arm of the ideology of Islam. It is well past time the MSM acknowledged that Islam is not just a religion but an entire way of life. It is a legal system and a system of government. Its goals and beliefs are totally incompatible with democracy and human rights. It is a supremacist organisation that cannot and will not assimilate into our western societies. Allowing Islam to grow in numbers and strength inside our societies is cultural and democratic suicide.

On 7 January 2015 at about 11:30 local time, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Armed with assault rifles and other weapons, they killed 11 people and injured 11 others in the building. After leaving, they killed a French National Police officer outside the building. The gunmen identified themselves as belonging to the Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen, who took responsibility for the attack. Several related attacks followed in the Île-de-France region, where a further five were killed and 11 wounded.

France raised its Vigipirate terror alert and deployed soldiers in Île-de-France and Picardy. A massive manhunt led to the discovery of the suspects, who exchanged fire with police. The brothers took hostages at a signage company in Dammartin-en-Goële on 9 January and were shot dead when they emerged from the building firing.

On 11 January, about two million people, including more than 40 world leaders, met in Paris for a rally of national unity, and 3.7 million people joined demonstrations across France. The phrase Je suis Charlie has become a common slogan of support at the rallies and in social media. The staff of Charlie Hebdo continued with the publication, and the following issue print ran 7.95 million copies in six languages, in contrast to its typical print run of 60,000 in only French.

Today I also honour all the Israeli victims of Islamic terrorism. Their death toll keeps rising day by day, yet the Islamic terrorism, which they face on a daily basis inside their country, is misreported by the Media or ignored.

12440458_10153401328512689_2293553006018344635_o

28 lives have been stolen in terrorist attacks during the current wave of violence. We have updated this graphic too many times already. We pray there will be no more.

Where is the international outcry? Today we remember all 28 victims, including the Palestinian victim who was murdered by another Palestinian in an attempt to kill more Jews.

This extremism harms everyone. #StopIncitement — with Mahesh Dammika Irsuriya Arachchilage.

Stand With Us

Frogs have had enough of the Wogs

The Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys seem to be making a stand of sorts:

France is “not finished with terrorism”, says President Francois Hollande, who has used a New Year’s message to defend controversial plans to strip citizenship from those convicted of terrorism offences.

“The threat is still there,” he said in a televised address. “It remains in fact at its highest level, and we are regularly disrupting planned attacks.”

The French leader defended proposed constitutional changes to support a crackdown on militants following November’s deadly Islamist attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people.

Under the plans, French-born dual passport holders could be stripped of their nationality – a sanction currently applicable only to naturalised citizens.

NY Daily News happy to offend family of slain journalist but refuses to offend Muslims

How offensive is the below photo to you? Personally I hate how Media show photos of people being killed or tortured and even worse use videos of people being slaughtered (ISIS videos). Every time they use these images or play those videos they incentivise the evil people who created them to keep doing it as they are guaranteed to have their gruesome and incredibly offensive material spread all over the MSM network.

-Screen shot

Imagine if the MSM refused to show these images and videos and provided as few details as they do when someone commits suicide. Instead the MSM milk these horrible incidents for all the sensation and dollars they can. They could just report the facts but they choose to shock and offend. Imagine how the family of that dead female reporter must feel seeing their daughter’s final seconds of life splashed all over the Media?

Rushdie on Islam: ‘We have learned the wrong lessons’

Salman Rushdie, one of the first victims of Islamic attempts to destroy freedom of speech speaks about the wrong lessons we have learned in combating Islam.

Salman Rushdie believes that if The Satanic Verses had been published today, the members of the literary elite who rounded on Charlie Hebdo in the wake of the French satirical magazine winning a PEN prize for courage would not have defended him.

In an interview with the French magazine L’Express, the novelist said that “it seems we have learned the wrong lessons” from the experience of The Satanic Verses, which saw a fatwa issued against him by Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989, sending him into hiding. “Instead of realising that we need to oppose these attacks on freedom of expression, we thought that we need to placate them with compromise and renunciation,” he said.

Speaking about the decision by PEN’s American branch to award Charlie Hebdo with a freedom of expression courage award in May, which led to more than 200 writers putting their names to a letter protesting the decision for valorising “material that intensifies the anti-Islamic, anti-Maghreb, anti-Arab sentiments already prevalent in the western world”, Rushdie said the conflict had left “deep divisions” in the literary world. He would never have imagined that writers such as Michael Ondaatje, Peter Carey and Junot Díaz “would have taken this attitude”, and he had written to one of the key dissenters, Teju Cole, about the situation, he revealed.    Read more »
