In reply to Racist cartoons by Anonymous (not verified)
We are told by the bourgeois media, the Blairites and the Tories, that these cartoons are gravely insulting and offensive. We are told by some on the left that the cartoons are racist. We are told by some Muslims that they are blasphemous. Only the last charge can be accepted at face value without actually seeing the cartoons.
Lenin once said "anyone who accepts someone's word is a hopeless idiot". A very good description of those who feel able to comment on the cartoons without seeing them - or who have seen them (thanks to the AWL) but think ordinary folk should not be allowed this privilege, and should simply accept the word of their betters on this matter.
