The Differences

January 15th, 2015

I’ve been seeing people equating the Charlie cartoons to the Nazi anti-Semitic cartoons.  The justification here is that if you can ban Nazi cartoons, you should be able to ban cartoons with Mohammed in them.  First off, I don’t think either should be banned.  Even still, they aren’t the same, as a breakdown of basic logic would show.

In Nazi cartoons:

  • An unflattering caricature is made.
  • People who like the cartoon commit violence.
  • That violence is against the subject of the caricature.

In the Mohammed cartoons:

  • An unflattering caricature is made.
  • People who don’t like the cartoon commit violence.
  • That violence is against the cartoonist by the supporters of the subject of the caricature.

These aren’t even remotely related.  It’s the difference between me saying that Mexigogue is a child molester and getting his ass beaten by a crowd (arguably my fault), and me saying that Mexigogue is a child molester and getting my ass beaten by NAMBLA (all blame on the pederasts.)

Looters

November 25th, 2014

Keep in mind, as Ferguson burns — the real looting won’t begin until Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton make it back.  They’ve been looting the civil rights movement for millions of dollars over decades.
