I saw the best minds of my generation
Spitting on the corpses of their fallen comrades –
Some generation!

    Ah, I see. It does seem that the “Charlie Hebdo” lot were a bunch of activist Leftists who expressed their ideas through a “South Park” style of humour.

    (Cutting and pasting from one of my Facebook posts: Re: racist cartoons. “Charlie Hebdo… does not need anti-racist lessons from you, and it’s the Arab who’s telling you so.” – Zineb El Rhazoui, a columnist for the mag: http://www.cercledesvolontaires.fr/2013/12/22/si-charlie-hebdo-est-raciste-alors-je-le-suis-reponse-de-zineb-el-rhazoui-a-olivier-cyran/; an English translation appears down this page: http://thecharnelhouse.org/2015/01/15/if-charlie-hebdo-is-racist-then-so-am-i-zineb-el-rhazoui-responds-to-olivier-cyran/. She says: “Charlie Hebdo’s detractors… can only subscribe to your thinking if they never read the paper,” a point echoed by a Frenchman here: http://blogs.mediapart.fr/blog/olivier-tonneau/110115/charlie-hebdo-letter-my-british-friends (“I hope this helps you understand that if you belong to the radical left, you have lost precious friends and allies.”) and a Frenchwoman here: http://67-tardis-street.tumblr.com/post/107589955860/dear-us-followers (“We might have considered the drawings tasteless, but NOT racists. For the very simple reason that WE FUCKING KNOW OUR POLITICS. So, when you see the covers of the journal out of context and without understanding french, you’re seeing maybe 10% of what there’s to see.”) More here: https://ricochet.media/en/292/lost-in-translation-charlie-hebdo-free-speech-and-the-unilingual-left. And here: http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/01/29/ilia-blinderman-is-charlie-hebdo-racist-short-answer-no/. And here: http://www.understandingcharliehebdo.com/. Maajid Nawaz similarly argues that C.H. “isn’t racist” and was “parodying the Far Right”: https://www.facebook.com/MaajidNawazFanPage/posts/802159719851295.)
