Comedian Conan O’Brien was visibly shaken by the horrific attack on cartoonists in France Wednesday and he made a statement to his audience that should resonate with every freedom-loving American.
“This story really hits home for anyone who, day in and day out, mocks political, social and religious figures.
“In this country we just take it for granted that it’s our right to poke fun at the untouchable or the sacred. But today’s tragedy in Paris reminds us very viscerally that it’s a right some people are inexplicably forced to die for.
“So it is very important tonight that I express … all of us are terribly sad for the family of those victims, and the people of France, and anyone who now has to think twice before making a joke,” said O’Brien. “It’s not the way it’s supposed to be.”
