Nous Restons Charlie

We defend free speech above its contents” – PEN America in deciding to honor Charlie Hebdo. (source)

Meanwhile a university canceled a Charlie Hebdo appearance for “security” reasons. (source)

“If PEN as a free speech organization can’t defend and celebrate people who have been murdered for drawing pictures, then frankly the organization is not worth the name,” – Salaman Rushdie in criticizing six gutless whiny douchebags for deciding to resign from PEN America because of the honor to be bestowed on Charlie Hebdo.

Remember their names: Peter Carey, Michael Ondaatje, Francine Prose, Teju Cole, Rachel Kushner and Taiye Selasi – gutless sons of bitches. Trash. I’ve never heard of their useless asses before this, so there’s that anyhow.

And here at Reason, they explain why we should remain Charlie — no matter what. (here)

    I used to be a member of PEN when I lived in New York City. An amazing embodiment of every cliche you can imagine, regarding the east coast liberal establishment. Yes, they did some good work trying to help writers in “oppressive” regimes, but they were not what I would call open-minded. I still remember the looks of shock when I mentioned that I had written pornography.
