Four months after jihadists stormed the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and massacred 12 people, Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau blasted the satirical publication for being "rife with hate speech and fanaticism."
Trudeau declared that by "attacking a powerful, disenfranchised minority with crude, vulgar drawings closer to graffiti than cartoons," Charlie Hebdo had "wandered into the realm of hate speech."
Adding to the insult, the New York Post
editorialized, Trudeau made the claim while accepting an award from Long Island University for "lifetime achievement in journalism."
Trudeau's attack on Charlie Hebdo was "obscene," according to the Post, which slammed the Doonesbury cartoonist for having "denounced martyred colleagues who bravely drew [cartoons] to protect his rights" instead of "slamming the killers who deprived them of any speech at all."
The Daily Caller
labeled Trudeau a "smug, delusional hypocrite" who spoke of "punching up" – (i.e., defending the "little guy") – while acting as an apologist for Islamists around the world who are determined to snuff out any criticism of their religion.
The Daily Caller piece (entitled "Garry Trudeau Craps On The Corpses Of Charlie Hebdo") stated that Trudeau, who has used his free-speech rights to become a multimillionaire, "just slammed a tiny newspaper in France for being massacred by Islamic terrorists."
Trudeau seems to believe that "the Charlie Hebdo staff was the real power," according to the website. "Not the guys with guns, who slaughtered their enemies in the name of the second-largest religion in the world. No, no, no. Those poor terrorists were so powerless and disenfranchised, what choice did they have?"
