This article is a thoughtful response to the organizations that have not
shared the cartoons that led to the murders of journalists in France. Some say that {Arabs;Chinese;etc) do not want or cannot handle Free Speech. As the article succinctly states: “Bullshit”.

Standing for free speech is not American. It is logical. If one allows a government to control—to censor—offensive speech, then no speech will be allowed, except that which government approves, for any speech can offend anyone and then all speech is controlled.

The idea that speech should be controlled to limit offense is itself offensive to the principles of a free, open, and modern society. That is what the Charlie Hebdo murders teach us.


Freedom of Speech is a human right
