Sales of Salaman Rushdie’s infamous novel The Satanic Verses have skyrocketed following the horrific attack on the author last week, in a show of strength for free speech over Islamic extremism.

The New York Post reports that Rushdie’s 1988 novel, for which he has received death threats ever since, soared to the top of multiple Amazon bestseller lists.

The book hit number one in Contemporary Literature & Fiction, Fiction Satire and Humorous Literary Fiction.

The audiobook version became the seventh best-seller in Amazon’s Audible store.

The novel was also second bestseller in both the Politics & Social Science and the Self-Help & Psychology Humor categories on Tuesday, and the 26th best-selling book overall on Amazon’s US site.

Rushdie’s other novels also saw a jump in sales.

The Satanic Verses was deplored by extremists and declared blasphemous concerning its depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.

One reviewer wrote “Hope this book becomes #1 bestseller again just as a big F*** you to religious extremists and sympathizers,” adding “I didn’t even know about this book before. So if the idea was to spread the author’s message in modern times, then they succeeded!”

“I just bought this book in response to extremists who try to silence people. You will not win,” another reviewer added.

A further reviewer wrote “Dear Mr. would-be assassin, this book is now back on the bestseller lists. You did that. You tried to silence Salman Rushdie for writing something you found offensive, and now that very work is going to be in more homes, read by more people than ever before.”

The post continues, “This is what you have accomplished. This is the only thing you have ever accomplished, and the only thing you will ever accomplish.”

“Funny thing, if there had never been a fatwa on Mr. Rushdie in the first place, how many people do you suppose would have ever even heard of this book? Now a whole new generation will read it, all because you didn’t want it to be read by anyone,” the reviewer concludes.

    Why Didn’t This Video Go Viral?

    If only talent translated to virtue

    This says everything about the world we live in.

    The Library of Congress decided in its infinite wisdom to loan a flute owned by founding father James Madison to the pop star Lizzo, making her the only person to ever be allowed to play the instrument, which dates from 1813.

    How was this presented to the public?

    The flute was transported to Lizzo’s DC concert, where she proceeded to parade around with barely anything on, twerking and gyrating her morbidly obese behind while blowing into the flute.

    It’s worse than the movie Idiocracy.

    But that’s not the entire story.

    The museum had invited Lizzo to come and play the instrument, because, although it may come as a shock, she can actually play the flute and is talented at it.

    Lizzo did visit the Library, and did play the instrument, with clothes on and without shaking her ass around.

    So why didn’t that video make any headlines? Why didn’t that video go viral?

    Because having actual talent and engaging in real culture is discouraged in favour of dumbed down degrading ass shaking clown shows.
