I don’t support platforming with a drowned child. But that being said, the Charlie Hebdo team may have moved from a falsified guilt, thinking they somehow deserved their attack, to deep shock at what then happened in Paris, to total disgust at what happened in Cologne.
Private thought: Is Parisian government complicit in the making of this cartoon? In other words, two years ago, CB might have been hit with a hate crime accusation. Now, Charlie Hebdo is being used to slap Muslims and say, “Damn it! Just behave!”
I hate to see the footing of Europe. But then again, years ago I wrote that if policies were not carefully managed, the Islamist threat eradicated/contained, it would be every dog to the fight and there would be vigilantism.
Vigilantism is a product of failed governance.
