that is called a metaphor. Racists and xenophobes are surely heretics to the left.
"That depends on the message the picture transports. If pictures can't be hate speech, a cartoon of a banker with hooked nose and vile smirk wouldn't be either. Are you arguing that?"
No. Do you argue that every depiction of a banker is hate speech?
>Controversy arose over the publication's February 9, 2006 edition. Under the title "Mahomet débordé par les intégristes" ("Muhammad overwhelmed by fundamentalists"), the front page showed a cartoon of a weeping Prophet Muhammad saying "C'est dur d'être aimé par des cons" ("it's hard being loved by jerks").<
That is not hate speech but rather defending Mohammed against his islamist fans.
"My own prehistoric activities in front of the Axel-Springer-House don't belong to the wisest things I ever did, but they were a way to hold that media concern accountable. Anyway, all firebombing in reaction to the publication we are discussing here has been invented by you and Jake. When will you get that there was no firebombing?"
In the early hours of November 2, 2011, the newspaper's office in the 20th arrondissement was fire-bombed and its website hacked.
And regrading Springer - do you really compare the most powerful german media comglomerate and a small satiric paper? bY the way, how did your protest work out?
"With what right are you telling me to shut up? Where is your defence of free speech? If I decide it is the proper way to argue against this hate speech, how come you have the last word on it?"
I have not told you to shut up. I just think you are wrong. That is called having an argument.
"And now you have not only run out of arguments, you have come completely unglued."
You have just argued that a fire-bomb is sometimes a valid way of protest, so I am not so sure who is unglued here.
