Charlie Hebdo.....Is that a jewish magazine?
The French like nudity. First it was Kate's itty bitties now it's Muhammad. The Hebdo sold out. It's all about the money unless there is something more to it and it very well could be.
Charlie has a history of doing these things. In a court case against them in 2007 even Mossad squirt Sarkozy defended them and expressed his support for the ancient French tradition of satire. But not all satire and freedom of speech and expression are equal in France.
I have this new cartoon I'm sending Charlie. It shows Nazis herding 6 million smiling jews into the front door of an imaginary gas chamber and they all exit out the back into a Tel Aviv brothel waving fistfuls of cash. That issue would sell out too but there's a wee problem. Some overzealous French fried prosecutor might look upon imaginary gas chambers and less than 6 million dying as some kind of denial and even as anti-semitic which might cause incitement to smirk which is of course against the law and get me and the publisher 5 years in jail. I guess I'll send it to the Onion instead. They'll print anything.
There was some gas thrown on the fire here this week with the Mother Jones release of some Romney private statements at a $50,000 a plate get together. From the angle of the video it looks like it may have been taken by one of the help and that's exactly the kind of folks the Mitt was talking about. Don't you just love those little spy cameras? We should all have one.
I really liked that flare up but before we get all gaga about Mother Jones, let's remember exactly what they are. Yes, they speak some truth about a few things that we may agree with but the bottom line is that they are deep in the two party scam and provide left cover for Obama. They do hit pieces against 9/11 truthers and try to make us think that there actually is a legitimate debate on whether Obama has the right to assassinate American citizens and detain whoever he wants without charges indefinitely. They also promote that 'we' killed Bin Laden. Really?
It's only symbolic that we throw gas on the fires. It's really money that stokes the flames.
