Shortly after the Paris attacks last year, everybody on Facebook is changing thier profile pictures to French flags, when these virals start going around about atrocities that happened in other countries at the same time.
The same thing is happening in the wake of the Belgian attacks, but the virals are conspicuously absent. I really doubt the rest of the world was atrocity-free, that day, so why the lack of messages insisting we don’t just comemmorate the western victims?
It wouldn’t be anything to do with a certain magazine, which continues to be unrepentantly published in France, would it?
Oh, and, after the inevitable British attack, how many hours will it be before the Guardian article claiming we need a new flag, and not “this aggressive, jagged explosion”? 6 is not a low guess.
