French Court Considers Muzzie Cartoons, Free Speech

You remember when the Mohammed cartoons came out, and we saw what bastions of civility, peace, and free speech the Muzzies are. Well, check this out

Paris, France (CNSNews.com) – A year after an Islamic furor over the publication of cartoons satirizing Mohammed, a two-day trial that opened in Paris Wednesday is a key test of freedom of expression, according to press freedom advocates here.

The Paris Mosque and the Union of Islamic Organizations of France are suing Charlie Hebdo, a satirical weekly newspaper, accusing it of insulting Muslims and inciting religious hatred by publishing three cartoons.

Two of the cartoons were reprints from a series of 12 published by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September 2005.

"What's at stake is to reaffirm — in France for now, but also in Europe in general, because the cartoons originated in Denmark — that the public area is meant for debate, controversy, and even discord," said Elsa Vidal, head of the European bureau of the press freedom watchdog, Reporters Without Borders.

I just have to wonder if those who practice the "religion of peace" will scare the French courts so much that rule in favor of restrictions on free speech. Maybe you are thinking "hey, no way! Even the French will have the cajones to stand up and say "Nyet!""

Ah, but there is the rub. Approximately 25% of the French population, both legal, which includes citizens and interim workers, and illegals practice Islam. If India didn't have the cajones to stand up for free speech to their 13% Muslim population, when they blocked Internet access to myself and many other bloggers and sites, such as Yahoo pictures, there is quite a bit of the unknown regarding what the French courts will do.

And what will the American Left say if the courts restrict free speech? Will they still say we should be like those enlighted Europeans?

    thanks for the trackback…great site, by the way.

    I read your comment at Bob Owen’s place where you say, “We on the right would not approve of some rightosphere blogger who wrote like those at pendagon, and would rightly call out the candidate who hired them.”
    I searched your site for the post in which you call out John McCain for hiring Patrick Hynes. Among other things, Hynes has written on Chelsea Clinton, “Yep. She’s been Nip n’ Tucked. Just like Kerry and his girlfriend Alex. And she’s still hideously ugly!” Also on Chelsea Clinton, “Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno.” Heck, he even had this to say about the Straight Talk Express himself, “John McCain is a contemptable [sic] human being. He makes my stomach churn and my bowels clench.”
    I hope you are equally disgusted when Dick Cheney and George Bush meet with Rush “Parkinson’s is Funny” Limbaugh. The company you keep, right?
    Anyway, I’ll be looking forward to that post about McCain’s blogger. Cheers! Arrrr, matey!

    Also, I just wanted to add, what’s up with the picture on your sidebar of the person falling to their death from the WTC? That’s someone’s family member. I wonder how the family of that person would feel about you using the picture of their loved one’s imminent death for your own political agenda. Sick, man. Sick.

    Beware of the BELLS…the BELLS…the BELLS sayeth the Hunchback of Notre Dame! Soon, since the western infidels were stupid enough to tell Mr. Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall in 1987 (It fell in 1989), yes soon the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris France will no doubt become a Muslim Mosque, or a Chicque Cabaret Casbah, eh? Oui?
    Ja? Yes? Except for the French Legionairres that I was privileged to
    “support” a few decades ago in Africa (The former Dark Continent but you can’t say this anymore ’cause it’s not’PC’), the French today are the reason that Frenches mustard is YELLOW! Sacre bleau, et? C’est la vie, and know you know why the POODLE is a French attack dog! CHIEF Inspector Jacque Clousseau…where have you gone? Want to piss of a Frenchman? Just show him a photo of Chancellor Adolf Hitler standing in front of the Eiffel Tower in 1940! Or the Nazis marching THROUGH the Arc De Triumph / Arc Le Surrender! Oui?

    PS: Web Master First-Class WT! Want to piss off a post-911 Democrat-Liberal & ‘so called American pacifists’? KEEP on showing your ‘Attack On America/Holy Tuesday Operation’
    photos that killed/murdered/slaughtered 2,996 innocent Americans (that included 120 innocent foreigners) in a three hour period, in three U.S. states on the morning of September 11, 2001! The liberal media execs took most of the footage off TV within hours after 19 evil radical Islamic terrorist hijacker murderers
    flew OUR airplanes into the WTC North and South Twin Towers, AND into our US Military Headquarters – the Pentagon. The White House or U.S. Capitol buildings were NOT hit by United Flight 93 thanks to TODD BEAMER and the LET’S ROLL passengers that took the plane down into the serene countryside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania! As for your present 9-11 photo of the chef that leaped to his death from the WTC Windows of the World, leave it EXACTLY where it is, for though he has been forgotten by the 19 Blue States of America and by the world, HE hasn’t been forgotten by me – nor the other 2,995 victims of 9-11-01 radical Islamic terror!

    random dude: what exactly is the “agenda” that is advanced by showing pics of 9-11? the agenda that we were attacked by an implacable enemy? or that we’re at war with people that want to annihilate us? in fact, the only place there’s an agenda showing is when liberals for some reason DO NOT want Americans to be reminded of what happened that day…explain why we shouldn’t be reminded vividly and graphically of that attack on our soil? i’m dying to hear what you have to say.

  7. To start out, Random, I literally just read about the Hynes-McCain thing yesterday. Hynes was wrong for saying stuff like that, if he is going to blog for McCain. However, are those few sayings the equivilent of the constant filth that spews from the fingers of the Pandagon authors? I think not. And, I notice you failed to say that they are not the proper people to write for a US presidential candidate, or anything negative about them.

    As for the 9/11 picture, if you do not get the purpose, then you do not get what happened on 9/11. The picture goes to an archive for the 5 year anniversary. Darth gets the point of the photo, as does Ric.

  8. Oh, PS, random, 2 things. First, your comments had zero to do with the post.

    Second, I have yet to write a post about the Edwards blog kerfluffle, so, do not expect one about McCain-Hynes.

    Darth crUSAder to WT…. Copy? “Agenda”? “Agendas”?? WE don’t need no stinking…AGENDAS! The U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment declares that freedom of speech, religion and the press shall NOT be abridged. This applies to ALL Americans – even to conservative patriots that love their country. Tell Randumb Dud to READ the U.S. Constitution, or have someone read it to him, her or it! “Never estimate the POWER of the right side!” It’s for real and from above WT! GOD, not Allah, bless US and deliver US from evil…Let’s Roll!
