I find Charlie Hebdo’s swipe (no pun intended) a bit hollow for two reasons. Firstly, they attacked me after the jihad attack in Garland, Texas, saying I was obsessed with Islam — when in fact I am obsessed with freedom. Would they have me submit to the sharia?
And secondly, after the Charlie Hebdo jihad attack, the French magazine bowed to Islam and said the magazine would no longer draw Muhammad in cartoons. One of Charlie Hebdo’s most prominent journalists left the magazine over its refusal to criticize Islamic terror and draw the Prophet Muhammad.

French Magazine Charlie Hebdo Crosses the Line With Gruesome Theresa May Cover
Adweek, June7, 2017 (thanks to Van):
The June 7 issue of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo arrives on the heels of the Manchester and London Bridge terrorist attacks. Indeed, the bubble remark–‘Too much is too much’–comes from remarks made by U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May in the wake of the latter June 3 incidents.
The cover is tasteless. English-language media reaction is just starting to trickle in, but stay car-tooned. There will be lots of it. The cover line, translated, reads as ‘Multiculturalism is the British Way.’
From a U.S. perspective, it’s impossible not to think of the wrath that descended upon comedian Kathy Griffin last week for her posed, bloody Trump image shot by Tyler Shields. On the eve of the June 8 British election, the gang at Charlie Hebdo have published a depiction of May that will surely incense voters.
P.S. Our improvised hashtag #JeSuisAbassourdi in the sub-headline means: ‘We are thunderstruck.’
