What Timothee Chamlamp would have said to an interviewer if he’d been asked about his role in the 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacre

The iconic Canadian cartoonist was on CBC News Network’s The National Sunday morning, and asked about the shooting of Charlie Hebdo staff and journalists in Paris.
The interview is available for those who want to listen.
Chamlamps words: “I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be in Paris.”
It’s an odd one to hear, considering Chamlams famous career has been a controversial one.
Chamamps works in cartoons, usually from the 1920s to the 1930s, and in recent years has been critical of some of the most controversial ideas of the post-9/11 era.
For example, he’s known for his criticism of the US war on terror and his advocacy of the right to bear arms.
It’s worth pausing to think about Chamlam’s response to a question about his relationship to the shooting in Paris: I’m not saying it was my fault.
I was a guest on the program, but the program was not created by me, it was produced by a journalist, and that journalist is the CBC, which is the largest broadcaster in Canada, and the CBC is owned by the same company as CBC.
So I would say that the CBC and the person who created the program are not the same.
And I think the reason I say that is because they had me on as a guest, and they also have the right of free speech.
He continued: So it’s not like I’m saying, ‘Oh, that’s my fault for not being on the show.
I should have been.’
I think that’s completely wrong, and I think I am being very careful to not say that because I think it might be offensive to a lot of people, including some of those who were murdered.
So in a sense, that was my response.
Chamlam is a veteran of the Cold War, but he says he’s also been involved in civil rights activism, and has spoken out against racial discrimination in Canada.
He says the shooting is not the only incident in which he has been targeted.
“A lot of the other incidents, if you look at the [black] communities, they are much more likely to be victims of the police than the white communities,” he said.
“So in my opinion, I’m a little bit surprised by what has happened.”
In a recent interview with CBC, Chamlames brother-in-law and former CBC radio host Peter Van Buren said he was not surprised by the violence in Paris, and said Chamlums work in the field has helped him feel safe.
“I mean, he is an artist, he does his thing, and he makes money, and what he does is he makes cartoons,” Van Buster said.
He also said Chamlams work is used in a variety of publications, including publications that do not always agree with Chamlame’s political opinions.
He said the shooting “has a lot to do with” the way he’s perceived.
CBC said it would not be commenting further on the interview.
