Charlie Hebdo cartoon depicting an image of what the infamous dead Syrian toddler would probably become as an adult – sexual molester – has ignited a wave of anger among Muslims and Leftists, who are calling it “racist” on social media. (What ‘race’ is Islam?)
CBC (h/t maurice) The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is once again provoking debate about freedom of speech after publishing satirical cartoons playing off of the now famous photo of drowned Syrian three-year-old Aylan Kurdi. The cartoons are attempting to satirize the Muslim invader crisis and recent incidents of mass sexual abuse by Muslims in Germany and other parts of Europe.
This cartoon imagines Aylan Kurdi, the three-year old Syrian child who allegedly died at sea on the way to Europe, as an adult.
“What would have little Aylan grown up to be? A groper in Germany” (An ape molesting German women) reads the caption to this cartoon:
For all those that danced and pranced around chanting #JeSuisCharlie , I'm glad that paper finally showed it's true colors…disgusting.

I've seen people make legitimate defences of CH in the past, this latest cartoon invalidates every single one.

Hearing Charlie Hebdo mocked the death of Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi for the 2nd time. Those satirists sure do punch up and aim at the powerful

@SajdaMughal And you have proven that you don't know how to read and understand a cartoon. So sad.

@herbert_donald Charlie Hedbo moral decay? Just months after they were butchered by Muslims? What a sick person you are.

Another cartoon features a caption that says: “Proof that Europe is Christian. Christians walk on water…Muslim kids sink.”

Years ago we’d joke about how white adults found brown babies cute & would hate on them as they grew up. That’s what Charlie Hebdo depicts.

@michaeldweiss what Hebdo did is very inappropriate

@michaeldweiss No answer? Maybe because there isn't a "joke" there so much as shitting on refugees.

@michaeldweiss but I still say they have the right to be insulting and provocating, and we have the right to just ignore them and not buy it

In one cartoon, the child is depicted under a caption that says: “So close to his goal…” The image also shows a billboard featuring a character who resembles Ronald McDonald, that reads: “Two children’s menus for the price of one.”
