Ann Telnaes' Editorial Cartoons

Published 2015-01-13 (Image 121968)

Les Cathos Integristes. Contre le theatre. Charlie Hebdo. 100 coups de fouet, si vous netes pas morts de rire! So now the shock of the murders has turned to questioning Charlie Hebdos satire. Some cartoonists and writers have described the cartoons as anti-Muslim, blasphemous, offensive and bigoted. The 2009 firing of a cartoonist who wrote and anti-Semitic column has also been mentioned ... First of all, I am not a big fan of bathroom humor. Secondly, and more seriously, its a valid discussion to have about why the divisions between people are so deep and our political discourse have become toxic ... However: That is not what we should be talking about now. The only question we should be asking is: Do we condone threats or violence toward individuals because of what they say or draw, regardless of how offensive the words or images are? NO. Because what happens once we get beyond the easy images to condemn? What?? And who makes that decision? All people must have the right to express themselves without fear otherwise we risk losing all our freedoms.
