Je suis Steyn

Mark Steyn reviews the Je suis Charlie campaign and finds it wanting.
The French establishment is co-opting these brave men's deaths for their own purposes, and for the most part the world's media are helping them get away with it. I spent much of Thursday on TV and radio, and my irritation with the dismal #JeSuisCharlie campaign increased as the day wore on. The self-flattering evasiveness of all those cartoonists around the world offering lame variations of "the pen is mightier than the sword" was especially feeble.
Will you do more than a hashtag and some concern?
