We don't want to get tunnel vision but, right now, is there anything more important than this?
Right now? How about ever?
I thought the making of the film Innocence of the Muslims was badly done, in poor taste, mildly offensive and something I would never do. It was not and never should be considered a crime. Nakoula's rights as an American are being abridged by a President adored by the left; the same left that is always making a big stink about free speech. Where are the defenders of free speech on the left now? The DailyKos is in full throated defense of the actions of the administration; they have totally sold out to Obama's would be totalitarianism. The claim is that this was a probation violation because Nakoula can't use a computer or the internet without permission from his probation officer. Do we have any doubt that such provisions are routine and routinely ignored, except when convenient not to? Regardless, it is only the act of mocking the story of Mohammed that has this guy in trouble; how is that not a step towards repression. From moveon.org, crickets on this subject.
The events that have transpired this past week have confirmed what we've always suspected about the liberal-left in this country and that is their highly selective view of free speech.
Piss Christ? Hey, it's cocktails on the upper West Side, baby. A crappy Youtube video that outs Mohammed as queer? Uh, now we've got some problems.
Similar to how you don't hear a peep from these hypocrites about the President's ability to detain U.S. citizens indefinetely without cause via the American Defense Authorization Act he signed back in November of 2011, the liberal-left have bought into entirely the Dear Leader's police state.
