Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring seven, French officials say.
The latest tweet on Charlie Hebdo’s account was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its irreverent take on news and current affairs.
The magazine was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.
But there is some good news in this, from a leftist perspective. No terrorists were deprived of sleep or put in stress positions in order to gather intelligence to prevent the attack; so the left’s unearned sense of moral superiority remains intact. Also, the victims were unable to shoot back, so we know that the ‘common sense gun laws’ favored by leftists were working as they should. And, President Obama continues to work hard at releasing more Mohammedan terrorists from Gitmo, so we can expect more of these types of successes in the future.
Gravedancing? Hardly. The deaths of twelve innocent people on the altar of leftist multicultural ideology is horrid, and I am incensed at their murders as much or more than any leftist was when they learned that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had water poured on his nose. If I have to be over-the-top sarcastic and tasteless to point out that the left’s vacuous moral sanctimony has real life consequences, then so be it.
Be mad at the left for being sanctimonious moral cowards; and by all means be angry at the terrorists for their savagery, and especially be mad at the terror apologists who say the victims had it coming to them for “insulting the ‘Prophet,'” but for Set’s sake don’t be mad at me for pointing all of this out.
