Today I saw a news-show in which they showed pictures from a solidarity event, which in turn was made to show the sympathy of the muslim community in germany for the victims of the attack in paris.
It was a nice event and the president spoke and a bishob and someone from the jewish community and it was a pretty nice event and a pretty nice show.
After that show they had an advertisement for another news-show about the dangers of young muslims in germany becoming radical.
Well played...
The next time you are saying "Je suis Charlie" to make a point in defending the right to free speech, please consider that "Charlie Hebdo" was originally called Hara-Kiri Hebdo, which got banned from sales in 1970 after they made a headline that involved president Charles de Gaulle, who had died that year.
The reason for them was a fire in a disco were 146 people died, but those deaths were turned down in the medias in favor of the aformentioned de Gaulle and his demise.
It's also the reason for the magazines current name: "Charlie" does not referre to Charlie Chaplin (as I thought, stuipid me), it references Chalres de Gaulle and the escapade of them having to close the old magazine, because of "Lèse-majesté".

There you have it: 146 dead being ignored because of one guy and a magazine becoming the galionsfigure for free-speech in the western world, despite being subject to censorship themselves. Moral sleight of hand...
2 days on the internet and I already had enough.

People are yelling at me to denounce the ideology behind the attacks, continue drawing Mohammad and not reasoning with islam, because you can't reason with islam.
Muslims from all over europe being subliminally expected by opportunity nazis to distance themselves openly from the attacks and the attackers before anything else.
Racists taking the opportunity to suggest going back to the Deathpanelty, I'm sure Hitler would be exploding with joy over that one.

And the worst thing of all? It's utterly pointless!
After 9/11 everyone said that the world was never going to be the same, and then? Buisness as usual except for goverments starting to spy on ther own people for the sake of security. Something that makes germans think back to the DDR.
Buisness as usual: Cartoonists will continue to draw, wether they are threatned or not. Nazis will continue to make Muslims as a whole into a problem that has to be delt with (after all the jew-question has been solved already). Muslims will continue to live their lifes as normal, because that's what they want: live their life as normal, just like anybody else. And terrorists will continue to throw their pesky bombs at us in an attempt to scare us, which wouldn't work at all if our media wasn't so eager to help them on the task.

That's it internet, there you have it: my opinion. You said some stuff about free speech and wanted me to speak my mind. So here we are - can't handle it? Be carefull what you wish for!

If we take all (2 [two]!) islamistic attacks in all of europe over the past years into account we have about 20 dead people. Anders Breivick killed about 60 people all by himself. I hate to say it, but this one is 1:0 for the nazis, I guess it's because they have homefield advantege. By the way do you still know where the other attack happened? No, because you have been going back to buisness as usual after that one too.

The nazis have homefield advantege and they want to kep it that way. That's why they point their fingers to the east and claim that we have to defend ourselves against an "islamisation of the occident". War on terrorism, look where it got us: The IS would never exist in it's current state if the US hadn't destroyed the iraq. And why did they destroy iraq? Because of the attack on 9/11, that was mentioned above. And before you say something about weapons of massdestruction, that have never been found either, That wasn't the reason the american soldiers believed in, they thought they were going there to avenge the people of the world-trade-center. A cause that is so much more honorable than the mere drilling of oil.

Do I sound angry? Yeah? That's because I fucking am angry:"Je suis Charlie", the piece of art that you guys have created to express your sympathy for the dead is in the hands of racists that are using the dead to advance their narrow minded agendas and if you don't speak up against them you have no right to complain. You believe in free speech and the right to an opinion? Go do something about it. Or what happened to Charlie might happen to you.

Yours,
the erring Fool

P.S.: If you find 3rd Reich comparisons inapropriet for the situation, go ahead and google "Reichstag fire". you're welcome.
This might seem like the beggining of a strange joke, but this story starts with a dunmer and a nord sitting in a tavern.

The nord was a well known man called Brunwulf Free-Winter, the dunmer had been seen before but he kept to himself most of the time. Some of the men in town understood this as the arrogance the elves were known for. Though Brunwulf had come to know his companion as a pleasent and openminded...fellow. And this had been bothering him, since it seemed contradictory.
The other nord did not think of the dunmer, or darkelves very highly. Those who lived in the city lived in a slum, called the grey quater, presumably a reference to their skincolour. And yet this specific dunmer or dark elve decided to aid the lord of the city, Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak, in his rebellion against the empire.
It was bothering Brunwulf.
The dunmer looked at him and said:"You look troubled, my friend."
"Oh it's nothing...", he replied and as the other one kept looking he added:"It's just...I don't get why you support Ulfric."
The elf reaised his eyebrows, acting overly suprised:"Oh, what's not to understand there?"
Brunwulf leaned back and gestured vaguely:"Well...your people are not treated with much kindness in this city."
"And because each and every one of us is bound solely to the fate of his kinsmen, I am to live in a slum and hate Ulfric, is that what you are implying?", he inquired between sips.
"Are you making fun of me now?", the nord gave the dunmer a strange look.
"Not at all, but the same way as your position is not to be compared with Ulfric's, the same way I and the other mer in this city have very little in common.", the darkelf uttered these words with out a hint of irony or arrogance.
"Still...", now Brunwulf had to get to the bottom of this "It does not explain why you for Ulfric, you could aswell side with the Empire."
"Hmph the empire...", his friend's red eyes became smaller, his gaze joyless and harsh.
"This empire is worth little more than the stool, the emperor sits on."
Brunwulf opened his mouth to answere, but the other one raised a hand and went on:"There are good men and women fight for the imperial army in ths war, I won't deny you that. But you also have to see, that just because Ulfric has problems with none-nords, it doesn't have to be that all stormcloaks feel the same. After all they took me in, if you take my word for it. They put me to the same tests as everyone else and gave me the same tasks."
Brunwulf thought about that for a moment:"And what did the imperials do to deserve your ire?"
The elf took a deep breath and went on:"The imperials have done little to deserve anything from me, infact they are as good as any other men, like that young woman working as a blacksmith in whiterun, she has spirit. The imperial army on the other hand...when I came to skyrim months ago, they had set up a trap at the border to catch a group of stormcloaks, aswell as a horsethief and myself and although there was no indication on my person that I was a member of the rebellion, in fact they did not even know my name, they went on to decapitate me, without giving me any chance to state my case."
"How did you survive then?", the man asked curiously.
"A dragon interrupted the lovely ceremony, but let's not talk about that now.", he said and added "What's rather interesting though is that when I went to general Tullius, later as an ambassador of the stormcloaks he suggested that it had merely been a bureaucratic mistake and went on to add some half-hearted apology, which is atleast dishonest if not dishonorable."
"Well...", Brunwulf added in apologetic tone "You can't hold the entire empire responsible for the actions of one man, can you?"
"No I can't and I wont but if you go to the island of Solstheim and talk to the Dunmer there they will tell you, that during the so-called Oblivion-crisis when Our homeland was threatened by horrific monsters the imperial army withdrew alltogether and left us to fight the threat ourselves and when everything was over the empire crawled back out of it's hole as if nothing had ever happened and went on to demand taxes and submission. Is that what men call just leadership?"
The nord looked down into his tankerd, his friend was referencing events long past, but elves had long lives and long memories so he supposed it was true.
"So...", Brunwulf wasn't sure what he wanted to say, but he went on:"Are you saying that it was right for Ulfric to kill his King?"
"As far as I can tell he did not violate any vital rules when he challenged the king to a duel, although I heard the entertaining stories about how Ulfric 'ripped the king in half with his voice'...", he giggled "I studied the way of the voice and there is no shout that can rip someone apart so I am going to believe Ulfric's version in which he simply knocked his opponent down with his voice and killed him with his sword."
The elf lifted his tankerd to drink and then something else came to his mind and he went on:"On a side note, after Ulfric 'murdered' the highking, the kings widow who was suddenly in charge of everything wanted to arrest Ulfric for the crime of killing the king, which as far as I remember is not customary as part of duels, or is it?", he asked with all the irony of a lifetime. "After that they executed the man who helped Ulfric escape. The imperials and the kings wife bend the rules as they see fit and yet the have the nerve to call others traitors. Is that honest leadership?"
"You are going to ask that question again and again, aren't you?", the nord asked with little joy.
"I will keep asking untill I find a fitting answere and by 'fitting' I mean satisfying. After the great war, 30 years ago, the highelves who defeated the empire, brought the emperor to outlaw the worship of the god the nords and all other men venerate the most. And their agents, the Thalmor, arrest and torture whoever they see fit simply on the assumption you might be a worshiper of Talos. And other 'honorable' nord blackmail their neighbors to the Thalmor, simply to get rid of them, uargh.", the elf made a noise as if he had eaten something poisonous.
"So you hate the higheelves, not the imperials?", asked Brunwulf.
The dunmer raised his armes in anger:"No, by the Three, no! I don't care for the highelves anymore then I care for the imperials. If at all it's the Thalmor that I hate, the Thalmor that use the emperor as a handpuppet, the Thalmor that purge Valenwood of it's woodelf citizens, the Thalmor that capture and torture based on what people believe in. If you are true to yourself you know it is right. You know that we cannot fight for an empire that bows to these...*N'Wah*."
There was a long silence. Brunwulf looked at his friend who was staring into his drink.
"So what are you going to do?", he asked after a while.
The dunmer looked up at him and then he looked around, he saw the bard of the tavern, a girl named Luaffyn, and gestured her to come over.
"Is there anything you want me to play, milord?", she smiled.
"Can you play 'The Age of Agression' for me?", the elf asked and the bard's smile faded away almost imidietly.
The age of Agression was a song played by pro-imperial bards, it condemed the stormcloaks and called Ulfric the killer of kings.
"S-sure...", she said mildly uncomfortable, but after all the guy that pays also chooses the song.
She came to the middle of the third line before the commotion started.
"What is this you filthy whore?!", one of the townsfolk shouted.
The darkelf stood up:"I payed her to play the song."
"So you're a traitor now too?!", someone groweled.
"No, but if this land is supposed to be free, then why can't people sing whatever song they like, hu? Who are you to dictate what song she can play and which she can't? Isn't that the kind of oppression you are fighting so furiously? If you are true nord as you lable yourself you should step up and fight so that each and everyone of us may worship whoever they want and sing what they like. That's what I fight for, and that's what you should fight for-", he looked at Brunwulf "-it's the only honorable thing to do."
He put a fistfull of coins down on the table and gave a few of them to the bard:"Thank you for the song..."
And then he left the tavern leaving irritated townsfolk behind.
He stepped out into the night and took a deepbreath of the cold air.
"Oh Vivec...", he thought to himself "I might live to see the day they learn."
Tavern conversation
Now this is not supposed to be fanfiction, that's why i didn't clasify it as such.
It is meant as an sociopolitical experiment of thoughts, sort of.

Some people think of ulfric as a nazi, which is in my mind a bit short sighted, but i didn't write this to explain why the stormcloaks are the only true path.
I wrote it to explain why a darkelf might see it as the right path.

Also if I used incorrect information (i tried to make this as close to the lore as possible, for authenticity's sake) please notify me. 
If you are offended, because I am suggesting that the leader of the imperial army is a spineless retard, you are missing the point.
If you think this is unrealistic because the views stated in here are to sophisticated, you might consider that far traveled characters DO have such views.

Other than that: Enjoy.
