Je refuse d'être un raciste

Je refuse d'être manipulé

Je demande toujours des questions

I'm not Charlie

I refuse to be a racist

I refuse to be manipulated

I always ask questions

While it's admirable to be quick to condemn any atrocity, it's also wise to never jump equally as quickly to conclusions, nor readily accept every official explanation without truly adequate evidence.

Strangely, it seems that many of those who wave the "Je suis Charlie" placards and spout their championing of "free speech" are only desiring the freedom of hatred, freedom to be an Islamophobe, freedom to insult foreigners and outsiders and Arabs.

Does Charlie Hedbo have an Islamophobic policy and double-standard? Is a it an anti-Arab propaganda outlet? According to a cartoonist who formerly worked at Charlie Hedbo, and watched how it's changed since the 1970s, the answer is YES!

Hypocrisy and intentionally setting out to demonise a certain group of people is exactly what the Nazis were doing in their media during the 3rd Reich, apparently in France it's OK to do that too. Charlie Hedbo's management and the French government just pick Arabs instead of Jews and pretend it's "freedom of speech" when it's really just hate-speech. Charlie Hedbo didn't have anything close to being skilful cartoons, they're trash. Made and published by racists, read by racists, promoted by racists. Hate mongering garbage.

Adding to the double-standards, the French authorities are frequently threatening, intimidating, fining, and even imprisoning people who DON'T criticise Muslims, but who instead criticise the French hypocrisy and racism.……

Je ne suis pas Charlie

I'm not alone in thinking this……………………………………………

The Paris gunmen were masked, they shouted "Allahu akubar!" like some Hollywood film version stereotype of the nasty raghead Arab villain, they conveniently left behind a driver's license in their car (as if it was normal to take out your driver's license and put it out where everyone can see it on the seat next to you while driving and not keep it in your wallet), their faces were never seen. Shouting "Al Queda in Yemen" and "Allahu Akbar" rubbish, does NOT make the attackers automatically proven to be Muslims. It's like a Hollywood film with the badguys shouting "Allah Akbar" in order to demonize Islam;…

Apart from the French authorities jumping in minutes to calling it a Muslim terrorist attack, and their very convenient killing of the "suspects", what evidence do we have that the gunmen were really Muslims? Social media posts and claims by 'someone' pretending to be a Muslim just doesn't make the foundation for good evidence. Shouting "Al queda in yemen" doesn't make them really from either. They were masked, so they were hiding their identities - yet we're contradictorily being told that these gunmen were shouting and saying who they were?! One of the Charlie Hedbo staff reported that one of the attackers had blue eyes - which neither of the alleged "suspects" had.

The French authorities claimed that they "identified" the attackers DNA just two hours after the attack, which is a ridiculous impossibility and outright lie because it takes days to carry out forensics investigation. A forensic DNA analysis but requires in the fastest case two days and in the case of mixed tracks it requires up to three months. It is impossible to make a DNA confirmation in only two hours. The French police are openly lying. Then the French police conveniently shoot dead the two "suspects" - ensuring no trial, no day in court, just guilt by association forever. We're being fed bullshit, about time more people recognised the stink. Amedy Coulibaly was not asked to give up, he was given no chance to live, he was simply executed. Coulibaly had no weapon in his hand as he ran to the door, and did not shoot at the police. Do you know why? BECAUSE HE HAD HANDCUFFS ON. This was an execution.

If a story is being repeated before the blood has dried, you can be certain that no real investigation was ever intended, that scapegoats and a false narrative are the official policy.

Governments are led by habitual abusers of power who are quite willing to lie to their citizens in order to motivate actions which only benefit the rulers.

The whole point of Operation Gladio was to sow hatred and distrust against communists, it seems to me, that the same kind of sponsored terrorism is being used to sow hatred and distrust against Muslims. ISIS also is not what the Western corporate media and Western governments claim either.

Official stories tend to be covers for corruption and lies by government officials. Always follow the dictum “Governments LIE”. Whether it's Iraq war lies about WMDs, torture in CIA black prisons, or the CIA's manipulations of the USA media. These seem new and daring and controversial to those who scream Conspiracy Theorist at every radical, every sceptic, every doubter of the 'official story' handed down from on high by those who forget that Governments ALWAYS lie. It must be easily brushed away for them these lies of the past, such as supposedly heroic Entebbe Raid that wasn't what it was pretended to be at the time. Have you ever asked yourself about why is it that every time anyone is a sceptic of a Western government's bullshit that so many idiots have been trained into instantly using the cult-style thought stopping “must be a conspiracy theorist” pejorative?

From the above link about the subject of:

Thought Stopping. Members are trained (normally over years) to have thoughts stopped or reasoning processes interrupted when they hear a certain phrase or even a word. For example, when a cult member is talking with a non-member about what Jesus did on the cross, they make progress until the latter mentions that the member's group is a cult. The member thinks "Aha! We were warned about this!" and immediately starts to reinterpret everything he/she hears according to the cult teachings (see loaded language above). Reasoning processes are instantly affected and strong resistance to rational thought is triggered in the member. For some, thought stopping might involve chanting to block out "sinful" thoughts.

If you're prone to doing this, then you've been brainwashed. Trained in a Pavlovian response. Ring the bell, salivate with hatred. Hear someone question the official story, shout “Conspiracy theory!” like a well trained cultist because they must be SINNERS!

Charlie Hebdo was not, and is not, truly supportive of “free speech”. They're racist, islamophobic, xenophobic and twisted hate-mongerers. Charlie Hebdo has demonstrated that their policy is portray ALL Muslims as terrorist fanatics deserving to be slaughtered. The one time that a cartoonist (Maurice Sinet) made a cartoon that was considered "Anti-Jew", he was fired from Charlie Hedbo and charged by the authorities with inciting racial hatred. In 2000, journalist Mona Chollet was sacked after she had protested against a Philippe Val article which called Palestinians “non-civilized”. Apparently promoting hatred and lies about Islam is all fine and well, but don't ever criticize Jews. Why is the Charlie Hebdo satire considered OK, but not Dieudonne? There is no "free speech" in France, only freedom of hatred. Charlie Hedbo is an islamophobic propaganda publication, and it's been partially financed by the French government as well. That supposedly is called "free speech", but criticising Jews or Israel isn't allowed (free speech appears to be very one-sided and biased in France).

Comments by Israeli war criminals like this lying mass murderer should at least encourage people to be sceptical of the official story…

The French government pretends to be a champion of "freedom of speech" but they're exposed as really being cheerleaders for "freedom of hate". Charlie Hedbo is not even commercially viable; they're partially funded by the French government which shouts to everyone rational that this is a propaganda publisher. This fits with the continued Islamophobia encouraged by the French goverment for many years, which Charlie Hedbo is just one example of.

Other interesting sources for those who want to check into things;……

I'm saddened by the deaths of the victims, but I refuse to be lied to, tricked, or cheer along with the hatemongers. I'm suspicious of astro-turfed crowds with ready-made placards, and twitter accounts that are set up so fast with the exact same mantra it seems well prepared in advance. We've seen all these lies and propaganda games before.

One wrong does not make another wrong turn into something other than still being wrong. People were killed at Charlie Hedbo, but that does mean they're worthy nice people who should be paraded as saints. Charlie Hedbo incited Islamophobia and hatred, they have continued to do so, and have done so with almost every edition. They have apologised for insulting Christians, fired one cartoonist for a (rather mild) anti-Jewish joke, but they have NEVER apologised for their repetitive, trashy attacks and incitement against Muslims. They have NEVER fired one of their staff for engaging such obvious baiting and insult against Muslims. The double-standard is in our faces, and I'm disgusted with those who moronically cheer on the hate-mongerers.

Like my stuff? Please flattr me

Stupid Islamophobes are commenting below! Let me tell you one thing, one of my friends on here is a super nice guy and he's being abused emotionally.
And I can't BELIEVE anti-religious people! Hades is ticked off

True, unfortunately, there's a lot of conflation and misunderstanding being driven by propaganda, some of it by folks who should know better but refuse to properly investigate, research, and most importantly THINK about what they see.

I agree with you. People need to befriend Muslims, Christians, and Jews along with people of other religions to get to know them and actually LIKE them instead of turning to the internet.

There are strange people who unfortunately believe that sexual activities are somehow "dirty", or even "evil", therefore use words related to sexual activities as a pejorative. It's as if they hate their own bodies. Originally, among those of European culture, it's a holdover from Zoroastrian beliefs that contaminated Christianity through Roman Catholic priests who came under the influence of a secret society that infiltrated the Catholic Church. Among their secret beliefs was that all matter is evil, therefore flesh is evil, their bodies are therefore evil, was also a hidden belief that our true creator was Rex Maundi, not God, and that this world is essentially "Hell". The logic went basically that since ultimate power, ultimately corrupts, the Creator - having ultimate power - must be also the ultimate Evil. Priests who were persuaded by this, secretly turned against the original teachings of early Christianity. They wore the mask of being Christians, but taught a twisted, lying version of what Christianity was about.

Your attempt at insult reveals that you're subconsciously disgusted with yourself. That you've been indoctrinated to hate yourself.

I presume that you skipped all of that, since reading is too difficult for you, just as you skipped everything that I mentioned above about why I refuse to cheer along with the closet racists and hate-mongers. I refuse to be among people such as you, because I'd rather be a whole spiritual being of good intention, than a blind follower among the other sheep who bleet for hatred, bleet for wars, and go along with the demonisation of everyone and everything that isn't part of their self-hating brainwashed crowd.

Goodbye, we won't be speaking again.

Thank you for this.

Since the attack, it has been repeated many times in France that all people and organisations have to talk it out about what happened. And that's something i agree with. Communication is needed and highly encouraged after this.

But then we shall seriously talk about freedom of speech and its REAL limits.

Because it isn't the first time that the expression "freedom of speech" gets linked to the caricature of the prophet only, and if we keep things this way, such caricatures will change from "freedom of speech" to "politically correct". And that would be the height of hypocrisy that lies within the expression "freedom of speech".

I wish i could post Je ne suis pas Charlie here in DA or in other sites i'm in, because i strongly think this (though i also do find miserable and horrible that such a thing happened and really none of them deserved to die). But i don't because that may makes people guilt-tripping me. So i said neither.

You can't be "guilt tripped" for something you truly believe and aren't feeling "guilty" of being wrong about.

Exactly. And some people should really consider that part of the story.

Thinks for your comment wich linked me to your place : as you can know, I agree to many points you collected in your faves and on your page.
We now have to play like that game "Where's Charlie" in any parts of the World were the war and the corruption are running and will run...
I just began to reverse this Charlie motto with another "black" joke of circumstance :…
May the FARCE be with you too !

''... Let them hate. For them I know not worse - or the best I could wish for myself too, than to live always in peace. ... I shall not ever discard or despise what I do not understand''

said grammarian in 1780's ''I wish you all the endurance of free company.''

I am sad that there is so much hate in the world, on all sides. But what set me off was the ''sensationalism'', the jump from 60.000 editions to 5.000.000 ~ another case of greedy people making money out of a tragedy -

as well as people not knowing the difference between

freedom of constructive criticism and argumentative journalism (here should be no limits)


freedom to hate and to mock.

Is the line between the two really so thin that we do not know when we do one or the other?

A person who hates - has no reason to wish for peace for everybody - and to a peaceful person hate holds no use and merit. Wow, even the pope says the freedom of speech has limits - especially when it is hurting others.

So, the bottom line here really is: are we, like CH,

in the name of freedom -

free to without consideration

~ hurt others?
... I simply have doubts that we can reduce ourselves and everything to a one-liner ...

I have relatives in publishing and printing. To go from 50,000 copies to a print run of 5 million, in 16 languages, would've required preparation well in advance. At least a month. Charlie Hedbo was close to bankruptcy, suddenly they're rich. It's very strange.

Interesting - but maybe not entirely inexplicable: could be that their material came from already made but discarded cartoons or just reprints of published ones, so something like this is easily popped onto the internet, it's not exactly a novel so those quick statements can be translated fast and as for the print - since it is a thin publication - could be that other bigger newspapers have offered to help with the printing. Bankruptcy, now that's interesting ...

Oh man i thought i was allone in this amongst all Charlie Parrots, some blocked me right away when i questioned this slogan,
so much for freedom of speech right? they are all for it aslong u go allong with the hate monger the MSM is pushing down our throats 24/7
funny thing is even when Netanyahu visited France, they didnt say a word about his warning/threat against France in December
coincedence again? free press? not bloody likely:…

great that some still use their brains & dare to ask questions when most are braindead,
if its up to them we all get a RFID chip yesterday, the wet dream of any Hitler 
U have my full support on this:…

I went around searching for others, started marking down as Favourite for each person who wasn't going along with the rest of the herd of cows mooing "I'm Charlie" without them having a clue what it really implies. Maybe enough people together can push the best up to where more people will see it. The truth needs to be said, regardless of there being such a large number who'd rather hide in delusions and think themselves "part of the group".

Indeed most hardly know what it realy implies, thats the sad part
Its like Bush saying again: u are with us or the terrorists, nothing in between
OnlyTheGhosts's avatar
That kind of "With Us Or Against Us" stuff is just like the Nazis used to say. Homeland Security is just like the SS too. All been done before, as if the previous occasions were tests of the ideas.

Yep but the sad thing is even while we know that & saw what awefull things came from that, we fall for it every time
u prob remember those manuscripts 'found' in a car with the names of all the 19 convenient
now we 'found' the driving license of the terrorist, as if u would leave that on your car seat, its the same 9/11 media brainwash 24/7 all over again
& DNA was 'matched' after 2hours already, while forensic investigation takes days, call me nuts, but i dont buy it, yet no one questions that
ive been in the army, if u get shot at close range with a rifle, it will indeed look like JFK like that article said that u send me, again no questions asked 
We have such a short term memory when it comes to that, The Nazis lost the war, but their ideology survived

I say rather or not this was real doesn't matter... When a person who shots a anti-Semite is tried they always go into victim's beliefs... When a Islamophobe is shot they always tend to defend the victim's right to free speech... Double standards are evident rather or not it is real..

I believe that we need to point to these types of misrepresentations and state-sponsored terrorism, shout it to the world, and say to the authorities "We will not go along with your hate-mongering, your war-mongering, your racism, your propaganda, nor your terrorising".

These corrupt Western government leaders want to push for another war, always another war, then another, and another. They're desperate to distract the people of their countries from the financial mess that their bankster buddies and super-rich greedy sponsors have made of things.

Well the fact is in what I read of ISIS it is like the Mexican Gangs with Sunni Religion... It is a criminal org which smuggles prostitutes and other such crap which is probably why Saudi Arabia originally supported them as they love their whores The whole fact if they really did this they are trying to gain support from youth in Europe to abduct more white women as they are considered rare in the Middle East among pimps. Most likely if Governments were honest they wouldn't be able to use ISIS to vilify Arab state like Palestine. ISIS is Natenyahu's last and only propaganda weapon besides right out censorship. We are about to see what occurred in the Apartheid Regime in South Africa all over again. This is the end... We should expect them to make some desperate moves.

This is one!…
