I agree! I just kept watching this video thinking "I'm actually agreeing with Bob for once, wow." Not sure I agree with him implying that Charlie Hebdo is racist, but I'll let that slide since the rest of it was right on the nose.Evonisia said:Super-serious? Well, I suppose, but I find this attempt at being serious much less condescending than the censorship episodes or the Jack Thompson episode, so this is well received by me.

Not only that but that magazine company that got attacked will publish Prophet Muhammad on its cover tomorrow-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30790409Burnouts3s3 said:An interesting stance.
I, myself, have been wondering about the whole 'getting back at them' sentiment with 'Draw Mohammad Day' response.
That, and the hypocrisy of crying "we should respect their culture" when they just got through a diatribe about "the patriarchy" and "rape culture" here in the West.endtherapture said:I think that most people are getting annoyed at those criticising Charlie Hebdo is because they're making arguments that basically amount to victim blaming. Given that the majority of people making these arguments are those from Tumblr and social justice crowds, them crying out against victim blaming for rape victims, but saying "Oh the cartoonists didn't deserve to get shot, but should not have made these dodgy cartoons" is hypocrisy of the highest order.
