Let's follow the French

The Commissar is following the lead of France Soir, the newspaper that reprinted the "offensive" Danish cartoons, and suggests we all do the same.
I’m not going to be one-upped by France Soir. Here they are. Two of the most objectionable full-size, followed by a strip of all twelve (click to expand). And, just to be and ‘equal-opportunity offender,’ I’ve also shown the infamous Piss Christ (which sparked a fair amount of bombast in 1987, but no boycotts, recalled ambassadors, or bomb threats.)

Will the NY Times, the London Times, La Prensa, La Repubblica, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, O Globo, the Buenos Aires Herald, and others also stand up for free speech? Looks like it! BBC NEWS: Muhammad cartoon row intensifies: France Soir, Germany’s Die Welt, La Stampa in Italy and El Periodico in Spain all carried some of the drawings.

I'm in.
