Then you associate with the wrong people if they tolerate such actions.

Personally, I've never met anyone like that.


The direction of this thread is that these people should not be allowed to have such a contest, or if they do it is expected that their lives will be ended soon after.

Everyone misdirecting at Jews or Christians need to bend over and take it some more. The Jihadists have beaten them into submission.

This contest should be a weekly occurrence in every publication in every free nation.

If one of the purposes of terrorism is to change the behavior of Westerners, then it is important that people continue to do things that they have the legal right (and the civic responsibility) to do in the Western world. People have the right to make fun of Jesus and they do. Are they motivated by hate? It is offensive to many, but it is part of our freedom of speech. Satirists make fun of things other people consider sacred because they have something to say that they think is important. If we all stop making fun of islam and it's prophet then the terrorists win. Once you give up one freedom, others will follow. Immigrants need to adapt to their new countries. They shouldn't expect those countries to adapt to them.

You equate expectation to acceptance?


You sound like a lost cause.

There are alot of scumbags on this shi%%y planet, all of them can go to hell. Are they sending the pictures only to ISIL?

So by your dim witted view, you should go down to predominantly black areas dressed as a KKK member. You have the right to free expression no?

Just because you can use a keyboard doesn't mean you should

Yes because Jews and Christians shouldn't be treated like the Muslims should they? This America dude where everyone is supposed to be treated equally and if some idiot wants to hold a contest for the sole purpose of offending Muslims then they should hold contests for the Jews and Christians as well.

Tell that to people like Geller who spreads her hate under the name Freedom of Speech.

No one has said that.

When people respond to terrorism with hatred toward an entire religion, as Geller has, the terrorists actually win. Congratulations to her (and you) for perpetuating the idea that all Muslims are guilty for the actions of a few.

I'm all about Freedom of Speech, but spreading hate is not the way to go. It's very immature on her part and just shows what kind of person she is. I feel she is starting a fire without the proper tools to put it out.

ITT: Everyone getting butt hurt about what this lady is doing, but cheered Charlie Hebdo on. What's the real issue? the paintings or the contest? Or that its happening in the US.

Sniff sniff I smell hypocrisy.

Ya lets poke the bear and then get angry when when it mauls you!!!

All in the name of a pissing contest.

10k?! How about you donate that to charity and people just do this for the principle if that is what it is really about

Don't try and equate this to what Hebdo was doing, nothing even close.

Hebdo went after everyone, he didn't just target one particular group in the name of hate.

Yet Hebdo is the one that they went after and killed. The Islamists made a statement by going after him instead of going after others. They silenced him now people want to silence everyone else. The only thing missing from this thread is a big Nazi or Isis flag to symbolize the oppression people are onboard with.

Actually, you make a great point; Hebdo went after ALL religions.

Question to all:
Was their record-selling cover issued immediately after the shootings which AGAIN showed the Prophet Muhammad in caricature...

Gratuitous muck-raking?
Revenge?
Issued to make a statement of support for victims?
Issued to protest the attackers?
Issued to restate their freedom of speech?

It's a fine line here, as to the motivations behind the use of ANY perceived inflammatory art. AND, of course, terms such as 'inflammatory' and 'justified'...are universally subjective.

Charlie Hebdo isn't a him...

Charlie Hebdo is an it...

You can't kill an imaginary person.

Charlie Hebdo's Founder (because it's a magazine, not a him) even said that the attack was provoked by the artists.



Again, expectation & predictability is not the same as acceptance & excusing.

So the "attack was provoked" you are going with? That is an excuse that you apparently accept. No cartoon can provoke a killing, ever. Cartoons are not real. The motive to kill existed long before any cartoon was penned of their prophet. The cartoon was just a convenience to act on their goals to oppress and dictate from an ill perceived supreme position over humanity.

Yes what they did as a follow up was completely fine and warranted.
This is a response to rally for religious freedom in the US that harmed no one.

Again, not the same thing by any means.

So, I take it you didn't read a word of that post you just quoted?


Here's the irony...

I expected such a response... & I do not accept it!
