Le Sigh.

The Obama Administration couldn't be bothered to send any top-tier leadership to the Paris March, probably out of fear of offending Muslims or even worse, missing a golf game.

And both CNN and The New York Times can't be bothered to actually show the post-attack Charlie Hebdo front page out of fear of offending Muslims or of getting their buildings attacked which may equate to much the same thing. People pissed at their fawning coverage over the Book of Mormon, their gratuitous display of "Piss Christ", or a slew of anti-Semitic cartoons and other anti-religious acts can take notes on how to prevent such offensive coverage.

Such leadership and courage from the American left these days.

That I and many other conservative and libertarian bloggers would defend a highly offensive Marxist magazine's free speech rights while its fellow travelers shy away from the same or give a "Yes it's terrible, but they had it coming for dressing like that" type answer is an interesting commentary on today's politics and values.

Those who do not learn from history...

And those that do know that Islamic attacks have been SOP since the 7th century. Ask those that were overwhelmed and subjugated by them in Isreal then if they thought their new masters were violent because of poverty or some other nonsence. No - THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY!.

Yep, the French need to be less "Je Suis Charlie" and more "Je Suis Charles Martel" before it's too late.

Oh come now - they sent John F-ing Kerry to give them all a big hug. That's a much better thing, right?
