The spinning of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity as a "freedom of expression" issue has been roundly exposed as a hoax greatly resembling George W. Bush's transparent plaint after the 9/11 events that "They hate us for our freedom."
Come ON! All the French/Muslim murderers wanted was treatment under the (numerous and intrusive) laws of France equal to that enjoyed by those espousing a certain mythology concerning "the Holocaust" in that country. In the home of Liberté, the Gayssot Act provides criminal penalties for anyone publicly expressing any doubt as to the details of the official (undefined) mythology. Lacking adequate access to France's extensive apparatus of control and repression, they merely took recourse to AK-47s, which they DID have access to, and sacrificed their lives in the process (do you think they really meant it?).
I hope their savage methods fail. I also hope the disguised savagery of the Gayssot Act fails, and that that and all the other laws in France that oppose free speech are repudiated and repealed. Short of that, I hope the admirers of the Prophet get their damned law, and France sinks into a miasma of regulation and repression to the point where everyone leaves it.
