If you really want to know the winner in the France’s most brutal slaughter in 50-years, it has to be Charlie Hebdo itself. Ask yourself: do you know who is Charlie Hebdo prior to the mass killings? You may try to act smart and answer that Charlie Hebdo could be a comedian or Justin Bieber’s stepbrother. In reality, nobody would have give a damn about this Charlie guy but thanks to three stupid Islamic terrorists, it was a free advertising for Charlie Hebdo.

 

In a latest twist not to surrender (unlike the cowardice shown by Sony Pictures) to the threat of terrorists, Charlie Hebdo magazine will publish 1 million copies next Wednesday instead of its usual 60,000. However, the paper will be 8-pages long instead of its usual 16. That’s a cool 1,566% increase in publications and potential revenue. According to its columnist Patrick Pelloux, the mission is to show that “stupidity will not win”.

Charlie Hebdo - Holding a pencil

In case you didn’t know, Charlie Hebdo was founded in 1970, and got its name from the American comic book character Charlie Brown from the series “Peanuts” (with “Hebdo” being French slang for weekly). Unlike other magazines, the cartoon-reliant newspaper sells by provoking readers over current events with irreverent cartoons taking potshots at everything from celebrities, presidents, the Pope, Islamic radicals and religions.

 

Financially, Charlie Hebdo wasn’t really profitable and has recently launched an appeal for donations to keep the business going. Now that majority of its cartoonists have been brutally murdered, the French couldn’t be more united than since Napolean Bonarparte’s revolution. Google is reportedly donating £250,000 (US$380,000; RM1.35 million) to the satirical French magazine. Money is the last thing Charlie should be worry, for now.

Reader reading Charlie Hebdo Controversial Magazine

So, you see, Charlie Hebdo was not such an influential and powerful magazine at all, judging by it’s pathetic 60,000 circulation. That’s a small drop in the ocean of 66 million France population. And it’s not even half of Malaysian most racist and extreme newspaper Utusan Malaysia, which had roughly 178,000 circulation in 2013. Only idiots would make a mountain out of a molehill. But these idiots did help catapult Charlie Hebdo to the world map.

 

Seriously, does Charlie Hebdo only insult the Islam? Obviously not. They target everything under the sun – Jesus, Prophet Muhammad and even Michael Jackson. Depending whether you’ve a sense of humour and could see through the provocative message, you may laugh or become a terrorist.
