LGF: No Guardians of Free Speech

Campaigner Peter Tatchell has a good post on the new Guardian comment blog today, defending last Saturday's Free Speech demo against its detractors.

More importantly, Tatchell puts in the time and effort to reply to those who challenge him on the blog, something almost none of the Guardian's celebrity bloggers do. Go Peter!

While we're on the subject of the March for Free Expression, did you all notice the gaping void in Jammymedia reporting of the event? Not a single post. Nor was there any mention of it on Little Green Footballs, hitherto staunch defenders of 'free speech' (if it's against Muslims) and cartoons (provided they are of Mohammed). Why the sudden silence? Could it be because there were no convenient Muslims to bash? Why, there were even Muslims supporting the event, calling for the defence of free speech! Cannot compute! Blasphemy! Lizardbrainmeltdown. Hence, no post.

CORRECTION: PJM had two posts on the march. Which makes it all the more remarkable that Crusading Charlie, Defender of the Free World(tm), didn't pick up on the march.
