GUEST,Boab appeasement (71* d) RE: appeasement 06 Feb 06

There are fools who will make offensive or even violent protest at any instance of irreverence to one of their cherished icons. There are even bigger fools who instigate the offence in the first place--although I cannot believe that their lack of sense runs to ignorance of what the certain consequence of their idiocy will lead to. Sensible human beings rightly condemn both the initial offence and the result, no matter from which entrenched interest either may emanate.
   Those who would actively approve of the initial offence --particularly delivered for no other purpose other than deliberate provocation, and purportedly in the name of "freedom"---are suffering , at Least, from a serious lack of judgement. They may emphatically disapprove of the reaction such offence; that IS a free
choice. What, in this case they are NOT entitled to claim [if they have half an ounce of gumption] is to express surprise at the reaction to the exercise of "press freedom" indulged in this case.
