Politico's Big But

When you use the big but, everything written or said before the big but is insincere and irrelevant. Politico contributor defends free speech, but....

There. We’ve said it. Terrorists bad. Charlie Hebdo good. Je suis CharlieNous sommes tous Charlie. 

But are we really? Charlie Hebdo is a weekly paper containing cartoons and reports that is known for being very irreverent and extremely antireligious. It publishes a kind of satire, but what kind? Is it real satire, or is it pseudo-satire? And therein lies an important distinction.
