Je Suis Charlie


12 people were assassinated at the offices of French alternative, left-wing, satirical publication Charlie Hebdo, which has been known for its irreverence and propensity to rip racists, religious fundamentalists (regardless of religion) and hate-mongers (like Marine Le Pen) to shreds. As was expected, this heinous crime was also co-opted by religious fundamentalists and far-right nutjobs who used it as an excuse for their anti-immigrant, islamophobic, racist, apartheid policies; the exact people Charlie Hebdo has traditionally despised and mocked. We’re not going to let them usurp this tragedy. We’ve had it with the advocates of racism. We’ve had it with the religious nuts. I stand with Charlie Hebdo and its blasphemous, irreverent satire.

Marine Le Pen - The candidate that resembles YOU.

Something else: Stop this “see? X religion is bad, my religion is peaceful and good”. It’s bullshit and you know it. So, cut it out. It’s not working.

  1. Every one who publishes, even just a SL blog, has a stake in this. Religion has nothing to do with it, it is a smokescreen, a tactic. Their goals have everything to do with power and control. We must all have the courage to stand up and say — loudly: “I AM CHARLIE!”.

  2. Sadly religion does not bring people together- It only further separates us – Every proselytizing faith is guilty of the “we’re right and you’re wrong way” of thought. Christianity and Islam have both been fanatical proselytizers. And speaking of atrocities, horrible crimes were committed in the name of Christ- as during the Crusades. Yes it is about power and gain and lets call a spade a spade, also there is power in blind religiosity. The only faith I can think of that does not blow other faiths up ( literally and figuratively) is Buddhism! We cannot go backward as some would have us do- I pray we find a way out of this insanity. Om mane padme hum. ( My two cents worth lol)
