The Vulgarity of Charlie Hebdo

We mourn the tragic event of January 7, 2015 at the Paris editorial offices of Charlie Hebdo. Sympathy should not be interpreted as approval for the publication's innate vulgarity.  See my post of January 15, 2015.

The most recent effusion of these Parisian adolescents involves the famous photograph of a dead Syrian boy whose body washed onto the Mediterranean shore of Turkey.

The drawing in question implies good riddance at the little boy's death as he likely would have become a molester. This reference is to sexual attacks on women in Cologne, Germany, by recent immigrants to to that city.

The denizens of Charlie Hebdo need never fear anyone accusing them of good taste.
