Oui. Je suis Charlie ici.
A clear message that we should not let anyone try to silence our inalienable right to the free expression of our opinions.In a internet full forums and no shortage of trolls, who cannot abide listening to another persons point of view beyond the sound of their own pathetic mental flatulence.We, who value our freedoms, paid for by the lives of those who sacrificed theirs, stand with all artists and journalists everywhere, who take risks to bring us information or entertain us.
@Joshua type in Charlie Hebdo on google, or look at the recent news events in Paris.
And well, nuff said eh Aaron.
“I am Charlie”
Well done. Merci
Thanks. I hope for justice.
Well done, Aaron! Thank you!
Great imagery, Aaron!
Great picture, well done Aaron, thanks for sharing.
I may hope for justice, but I pray for courage. I think we will all need a lot of that in the years ahead.
very profound Aaron. Brava!
La plume est plus puissante que l’épée.
But I thought, according to the national news, that Islam was not a violet religion?
Should’a written “aussi” above, not “ici.” I read French better than I write it…
Merci, Aaron. Je suis Charlie.
@OlongapojoeAll religions can be violent. It depends on who is interpreting it. Look at what Christians did in the middle ages to non-Christians.
I am beyond pleased that you responded to this atrocity. The pen(cil) is truly mightier than the sword/gun, and where 12 lives were taken in violence, you and other cartoonists/artists can show the world that ideas should be expressed freely – to create a dialog. Not to silence a divergent belief.
Thank you, Aaron.
The greatest enemy which the extremist must defeat is not the infidel—it is the moderate and tolerant people of his own faith. To this end, the extremist commits acts which cause outsiders to tar all of that faith with the same brush, pushing the moderates into a position of persecuted minority, from which the extremists can more easily recruit followers. As it is so often, it’s less about belief than about power and control. Hate, rage, fear and bigotry are their box of tools.
Bravo, M. Neathery. Ce est une façon de se en tenir à eux, ne est ce pas? Laissez-nous tout espoir et prier pour que les lâches responsables de ce scandale reçoivent la justice qu’ils méritent..Translation: Bravo, Mr. Neathery. That’s one way to stick it to them, isn’t it? Let us all hope and pray that the cowards responsible for this outrage receive the justice they deserve..Merci beaucoup, Google Translate…
I’m about to make myself extremely unpopular.
I am NOT condoning the Charlie Hedbo massacre. The perpetrators are the enemies of us all — of civilization itself. But in exercising their freedom, Charlie Hedbo opened themselves to what has happened.
The world we live in is what it is, and it’s a dangerous place. It has in it a small but lethal minority, of all religions and persuasions, whose only thought and action is — in the words of Jeff Dunham’s Achmed the Dead Terrorist — “SILENCE! I KILL YOU!”
Living in this world shouldn’t stop us from free speech and artistic expression, but it’s the height of naïveté to be shocked that there can be consequences…if you taunt a psychopath, you can only expect to be attacked as terribly as they know how.
There are casualties in every war, and martyrs to every cause, and now Charlie Hedbo has joined their ranks.
Excellent Cartoon. Thank you.
R.I.P. Charlie, you will be remembered long after these barbarians and their pseudoreligion are forgotten…
Thanks, Aaron for this compelling image.
Thank you Aaron for pointing out that lead poisoning can come from more than one source. What is sent in one manner can be returned in another.
Answer lead with lead.
Je suis Charlie.
Well done, Aaron
This just released: “The Westboro Baptist Church, in the wake of the recent horrific events in Paris, France, would like to remind its members that violence and violent speech are never the answer. When voicing our opinions, we must always remember to do so in a peaceful, calm, measured manner. Thank you.”
D’accord. L’union fait la force (Unity brings strength) (literal translation = unity makes strength)
Fanatics and Dictators (and fanatical Dictators) have no problem being portrayed as inhuman monsters — in fact, they revel in it! The more inhuman and monstrous the public sees them as, the better; because it gives them an image of invincibility and invulnerability that, in reality, they probably don’t actually have. They do, however, hate being portrayed as clowns and bumbling idiots — which is what satire does — because it strips them of their invincibility and invulnerability and shows the world their human foibles and hypocrisies. This is why, whenever Fanatics or Dictators take over an area or a Country, they make it a top priority to stop any and all satirical portrayals of themselves or their ideology even to the point of killing those who point and laugh.
Je suis Charlie aussi
Aaron, a wonderful response to that tragic day in which pyschopaths tried to kill freedom of speech.those who hate any other view but their own.This power play is active in this country as well.
your tribute is simple and elegant. I am Charlie too.
Yes. That’s all I think I need to say. Just yes.
Not enough pencils Aaron……
Je suis Charlie moi aussi..
Bravo, Aaron, bravo!
Good one, Aaron!
