A Victory For Charlie Hebdo

 Al-Qaeda usually put the blas ...T in blasphemy, how ironic. 

By now you've heard how 2 gunmen, possibly linked to Al-Qaeda went into the offices of the France magazine Charlie Hebdo and shot and killed 12 people. 

One of the victims, Stéphane Charbonnier (AKA Charb) was the publishing director and a cartoonist. He had been was on an al Qaeda "wanted" list dead or Alive for Crimes Against Islam. The offices were under police protection at the time of the shooting. 

The editor and cartoonist said in 2012: "Muhammad isn't sacred to me. I don't blame Muslims for not laughing at our drawings. I live under French law. I don't live under Quranic law." He said the cartoons would shock "Only those who will want to be shocked".

While one suspect handed himself into the police two others, thought to be brothers named Kouachi and Cherif Kouachi are still on the loose .... it won't end well for those two cunts.

Charlie Hebdo knew what would happen when they published the cartoons of Muhammad that were first shown in a Danish newspaper and when they invited Muhammad to be its guest editor with his bug eyed caricature on the cover. 
People who get so far into religion that it consumes their everyday life usually don't have much of a sense of humour and will take offense at anything, be they Muslim, Christian or Jew.   

 Religions wanting Charlie Hebbo to be silenced. 

When someone takes offense it's usually because fun has been made of what they believe in or what they think is true and this belief isn't solid fact and contains some major flaws, maybe they know deep down that what you say is true but rather than say, 'oh whatever' or 'you are welcome to your opinion' they attack because they feel as though they have been attacked. 

The attack is in response to the very idea that they may be wrong and they cannot accept that.... or more so they cannot accept that YOU may be right.   

Betty Bowers: America's best Christian  has a proper handle on it. On a similar vein Voltaire Said: To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you can't criticize. 

I've found that not being able to criticize people also has to do with who your friends are. If you have a friend who is a good person and you like them but they support a harmful or dangerous ideology then you might think twice about speaking out about that ideology for fear of upsetting them .... unless yer me of course as Old Knudsen is a big believer in being true to himself.  

You can't control what others think of you or how they see you and who knows what the fuck they think? maybe they are ready a dose of common sense. You can't spend life worrying what others might think. 

Yes I may offend but I may also speak the truth too. A few times my truth is not 100% correct or is too based in reality or actual events than how things are supposed to be but I try. 

Charlie Hebdo says you can't criticize the big 3 religions and that is true. Contradictory lifestyles based on writings that are thousands of years old, many are archaic and don't represent the changing times and many are just full of bullshit. 

One person can read the Bible and ignore the bad bits while others only focus on the bad bits because it empowers them or rather it belittles others. Organized religion is stupid and if you believe you should live yer life by it then .... figure out what that makes you.

Genders, races, abortion, the dead, equality, Israel, Palestine, the Holocaust, the disabled, charities, fat people, the troops, the police, alcoholics etc etc the list goes on. You thread on thin ice if you dare to point any faults or have an opinion that isn't trendy.

My enlightened fucking mind can say that Israel is our ally and how we need them in the Middle east but I'll also mention what crazy murderous fuckers they can be who in this age of surgical military attacks go for the weapons that do the most damage, do they really care if they kill Palestinian children? Their actions say no.

I may feel dirty and compromised at still supporting them but in the real world even the good guys commit atrocities.
I decided on what the problem of the world is:

 Love is stronger than hate.

The problem isn't Muslim gunmen, Christian gunmen, religion, gun control, sexism, racism or whatever, it's stupid people. The rest are all by products of that stupidity. ~ Old Knudsen

Take away the stupid people and most of their stupid leaves with them. Sometimes (see Japan WWII) the stupid has to be bombed out of them .... seriously, it took not one but two nukes?

The world has an abundance of stupid and speaking out with reason, logic and an arrow pointing towards doing the decent thing is all some can do, if we do it then things can change.

Eventually the seed of decency takes root but only after many horrible atrocities. Killing people for cartoons will only inspire more cartoons.
