Terrorist attack in Paris intimidates editors in London and New York

Frightened western editors reporting on the executions by Islamic terrorists of the editor and nine staff members at a French satire mag in Paris have illustrated the story by showing their own staffers reading an issue of the satire magazine--but with the cover illustration carefully pixellated out.

Some issues of the magazine had covers featuring cartoons of Mohammed.

Point of this story is that Muslim terrorists executing journalists in France have intimidated editors in London and New York.  Organizations choosing not to show the mag's covers include the NY Times, CNN, NBC and its subsidiaries, the Associated Press, Fox and others.  Hmmm...interesting.

Wait, I thought the emperor and the mainstream media have been telling us for farking ever that Islam was "the religion of peace" and that all violent extremists were right-wing former military or some such horseshit.

Do you suppose they're gonna change their story now, and recognize the real threat?

Not a chance.  In two weeks this story will have vanished from the mainstream media altogether.  The excuse-makers and appeasers have already started their familiar song:  "Just another lone wolf."  "Nothing at all to do with Islam."  "All religions have people who murder."  "We need to empathize with their situation."  "Root causes..."  "Religion of peace."

Naive morons.  But you'll all learn.  Eventually.

The NY Times ran a story that started with this 'graf:
The sophisticated military-style strike on a French newspaper staggered a continent already seething with anti-immigrant sentiments in some quarters, feeding far-right nationalist parties.
No mention that Muslim shitweasels armed with machineguns executed ten unarmed civilians in cold blood.  Rather, the executions were described as a "sophisticated military-style strike."  Indeed, the lede by the Times didn't mention executions at all, just a "strike on a French newspaper."  Oh, and the continent is "seething with anti-immigrant sentiments"?  Really?

Folks, the appeasers are already out in force, moving quickly to convince you this was a non-event having nothing to do with Islam.

In the category of "Blissfully unaware of the irony" is this quote from the AP on their policy of not printing any cartoons depicting Mohamhead (misspelling intentional):
“None of the images distributed by AP showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad,” an Associated Press spokesman said, according to the Daily Beast. “It’s been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images."
What's that again?  Y'say your policy "for years" has been that "We refrain from moving deliberately provocative images"? 

Excuse me sir, but it's clear that either you are a lying sack of shit, or you know nothing about the organization you purport to represent.  Because for years the AP has sold photos of a crucifix submerged in a tray of the artist's urine.

What you should have said is "We don't move images that will provoke Muslims but have no qualms about pushing images that insult or degrade Christianity.  Because we know one of those groups is peaceful while the other is extremely dangerous."

Yes, I think that's it.

UPDATE:  The emperor's helpers have already swung into action to convince you that the Muslim murderers in Paris aren't representative of "true" Islam, and have promised to redouble their efforts to "be clear about what the tenets of Islam actually are."  Here's spokeswhore Earnest:
“There are some individuals that are using a peaceful religion and grossly distorting it, and trying to use its tenets to inspire people around the globe to carry out acts of violence. And we have enjoyed significant success in enlisting leaders in the Muslim community, like I said, both in the United States and around the world to condemn that kind of messaging, to condemn those efforts to radicalize individuals, and to be clear about what the tenets of Islam actually are.  And we’re going to redouble those efforts in the days and weeks ahead.

Told ya.
