Back in 2011 I had a post on one craven reaction to the firebombing of the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Go here to read it. Well, now some group has gone far beyond firebombing to shut that magazine down:
Freedom will only continue to exist in this world if the authorities in free nations act to protect their citizenry from enemies foreign and domestic who would act to take that freedom away. In regard to most Western nations immigration policies have allowed the admission of large numbers of individuals who have only contempt for traditional Western notions of freedom, and the authorities within those nations have acted, by and large, as if they could care less. We shall see if the murderers who have attempted to silence a French magazine forever are among such individuals who blithe indifference have allowed to become enemies within traditionally free societies.
Update: Well this is totally expected:
AFP and Fox reporting Charlie Hebdo shooters in Paris shouted “Allahu Akbar.” BBC reporting they also yelled “we have avenged the prophet.”
