    Thank you.

    You’ve said better than i can what i’ve been thinking.

    I recommend to your attention this xkcd cartoon by Randall Munroe.

    And, if you move your mouse over it, you will read this .alt text:

    I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.

    Freedom of speech is wonderful.

    And everybody should be safe from violence and attacks – not just because of what they say, but for any reason.

    But it’s not a perfect world.

    And supporting someone’s (or a magazine’s) right to freedom of expression doesn’t mean that i have to align myself with them, or with what they say – i support free speech for the KKK and Stormfront, too, even those are both disgusting organisations i’d love to see destroyed.

    I think it’s interesting (ironic?) that the French are going out of their way to protect Jewish businesses, schools, neighborhoods, and synagogues (also known as temples and shuls) after the attacks on Charlie Hebdo when history shows that the French, for the most part, cooperated with the Nazis in sending the French Jewish population to concentration camps.

    Also, there has been a huge exodus of French Jews out of France due to the increasing anti-semitism once again raising its ugly head.
