Hard To Find German News Reports About This For Some Strange Reason

This firebombing last night of the Hamburger Morgenpost tabloid “that published Charlie Hebdo cartoons on the front page after the Paris massacre.”

Hamburger Morgenpost

Strange, don’t you think? You can find all kinds of stuff about anti-Pegida demonstrations and the German Defense Minister’s plans to put more women (like herself) at higher positions in the Bundeswehr and “the coming traffic chaos during the next vacation season” but other than that, well, it seems to be let’s-get-our-head-in-the-sand time again, as usual.

Maybe these terrorists know what they’re doing after all.

The regional tabloid daily, the Hamburger Morgenpost, had splashed three Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the Paris massacre, running the headline “This much freedom must be possible!”

No one was hurt in the attack in the northern port city, which police said occurred at about 1.20am on Sunday.

  1. Euronews has it in their repeating news story rotation today, but most Germans don’t watch the English language news channel here in Germany.

  2. I heard it on the radio this morning. Perhaps these guys just wanted to have it look like terrorists at work. A despicable act, no matter who committed it…

  3. Perhaps the papers don’t want to encourage other wackaloons? But hey, at least that paper had the guts to publish, most others, as your post pointedly says have been more ….ahem, “modestly” supportive?

    • When have they ever actually done that? I wouldn’t inpute that they had any good intentions. The press are intimidated to report an attack on the press, and an attack on speech because no one in the press has EVER had to really make the argument about the freedom of speech being necessary for a good society.

      They left the good society stuff up to their parents, and thought that it didn’t require anything of them. In a pinch, any one of them would misuse the rationalization about “shouting fire in a crowded theater,” under the theory that they’re different from the public somehow, and wouldn’t be subject to an atmosphere of self-censorship.

      Basically, they’re idiots. How could a population, a big chunk of whom lived with the self-silencing effect of the Stasi and the DDR Police State put up with any of this crap?
