Stephane Charbonnier
August 21, 1967 – January 7, 2015
Rueters columnist John Lloyd said that Stephane Charbonnier was stupid for openly mocking Islam. You, Mr. Lloyd, are going to have to live with that, and I am going to make sure plenty of people read your cowardly, disgraceful article. You would have made a good collaborator during the era of Vichy France.

Do you also tell abused women and children to just shut up, because THEN they’ll just all be so nice to you?

I’d rather DIE than give up my freedom of speech because a bunch of lunatics kill people because they’re stupid and violent. If they are that unmanageable they should not be living in our countries. Any person who kills another because of some fatwa should be executed. All the rioters who burn cars and buildings and throw rocks at police & firemen in Europe should be deported. PERIOD.

That IS in fact what you are arguing. I think you should rethink, sir.

The same goes for the filmmaker of Innocence of Muslims. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has put the lives of Coptic Christians in Muslim countries in danger.

The way I see it? It’s like one fella decides to throw a stone at a tiger while he is perched safely on a tree, though there are others on the ground who are not protected from the tiger he’s provoked and he cares not what happens to them. The pen is mightier than the sword. Should this truism not be taken seriously?

Thinking that the author of the movie is responsible for the death of the US Ambassador is like saying that Shell Oil is responsible for the Molotov cocktails.

This can be fixed once internet trolls realize that Muslim extremists are the most perfect trollbait the world has ever seen. By harnessing the power of internet trolls the world over, we could create an international movement to blanket all of cyberspace with moronic depictions of Muhammed, make up inane stories about fake histories of Islam and otherwise poke fun at zealots and relish in their rage. They’ll be reduced to gibbering schizophrenics in weeks, with no real target for violence and no way to fight back except to thicken their skin…

Westerners believe that they are the world’s standard and that everyone else should adopt our notion of civilization. We would be wise to remember that it was only 300 years ago, a mere blink in history, that we were hanging witches and jailing blastphemers.
