Arhive pe etichete: Je suis Charlie

Charlie Hebdo Thought Experiment

While ‘Je suis Charlie’ continues to reverberate powerfully and glue uncanny masses together in the name of the divinised victim of ‘freedom of expression’, try this thought experiment: imagine Charlie Hebdo was a satirical magazine that drew cartoons mocking the LGBTQ community. Would we still have millions rallying to defend the magazine’s right to offend or might it be that there’s an unspoken, unattackable standard that determines who can and who can’t be offended?
