THE HYPOCRISY OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA!
But with that said and in light of the execution of French satirists in Paris who are now being called journalists by the liberal press, just where does freedom of speech that could and does incite riots and the fringe to implement death dealing retribution find its limits? Are their limits to freedom of speech and of the press?
We know that in the USA we cannot use freedom of speech to provoke violence or stampedes, such as shouting fire in a crowded theater when there is no fire or using hate speech against homosexuals in particular, although if it is at a religion, Catholicism primary among it, it is okay, the press gives it a pass.
So, where was the liberal press when Pope Benedict gave his stunning, very accurate, sober and intelligent speech about the dangers of Islamic fundamentalists that created riots and hate and even death is some parts of the Islamic world? Who was condemned by the liberal press in and outside of the Church, the extremists or Pope Benedict. Who was forced to make an apology for his freedom of speech?
The satirists who were murdered, executed made a game of offending people of religion no matter what religion and in fact incited people on the fringe, the fundamentalists. Why didn't the liberal press treat these so-called journalists the same way as they treated Pope Benedict and his speech? And why now are they extolling the kind of hate language that provokes political and religious radicals to do evil, despicable things?
Would the liberal media applaud the journalists and cartoonists of the 19th century that vilified the Irish? Or the Germans that vilified the Jews in satire too?
There is a fine line between freedom of speech and inciting riots, violence, death and destruction.
