That seems to be pretty badly grounded, and confuses freedom of
expression with freedom from criticism. It is clear from Leigh's article
that he's not saying anyone should be compelled to express solidarity
for Charlie, or to republish their work, or to not consider them
racists. So making a false equivalence between criticising the position
of those who do otherwise with restricting their freedom to express such
a position is incredibly disingenuous.
