Nous sommes tous Charlie Hebdo
I haven’t posted here at MadArtLab before today, and although you will come to find out I’m not an artist as much as an artistic supporter, today that doesn’t much matter.
Many other outlets will give you more details than I wish existed about today’s terrorist attack in Paris.
You can find the details of the event and the ongoing hunt for the criminals and quest for justice all over the news.
We acknowledge the foundational truth that we are what we think, and our democracy is the freedom to think that out loud.
We are all Charlie Hebdo I think.

I thought this whole Mohammad cartoon controversy was largely over with. The people threatening the lives of innocent people over it, cannot be given into. Problem is, things like “everybody draw Muhammad Day” didn’t seem to do much, and really brought out the anti Muslim bigots.
