Thoughts on freedom of expression in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo Massacre

freedom-expressionI am not playing a blame the victim game.  No one should be killed or injured over cartoons no matter how offensive they are perceived to be.  And free expression does not mean that religions shouldn’t be lampooned.

(SAN FRANCISCO)   Much has been written about the killing of 12 people and the wounding of 11 others at the French satirical weekly publication Charlie Hebdo.  The discussion has for the most part been quite healthy concerning freedom of expression.  Freedom of expression is a right but it comes with a responsibility.

In the United States, the 1969 Supreme Court in Brandenberg v. Ohio struck down the conviction of a Ku Klux Klan member, and established a new standard: Speech can be suppressed only if it is intended, and likely to produce, “imminent lawless action.” Otherwise, even speech that advocates violence is protected. The Brandenberg standard prevails in the U.S. today.  Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, states that “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
