Quote# 89726

We continue to suffer the catastrophic consequences of Obama’s fantasist, anti-freedom foreign policy. The U.S. government is now saying that these anti-freedom riots have nothing to do with America or U.S. policy, but are solely about a video about Muhammad.

In fact, the riots have everything to do with America and U.S. policy. They are about freedom of conscience and freedom of speech: they’re an attempt to get the U.S. to shut down free speech and criminalize criticism of Islam, in accord with Shariah blasphemy laws. And the Obama administration is responding by putting a huge target on the head of the First Amendment (and on that of every U.S. citizen who exercises that constitutional right). This is a constitutional coup.

Right, cos you were tossed into jail for saying this, weren't you, Pam?

What do you mean, nothing happened to you?

So someone published a film that was offensive to Muslims, some Muslims rioted, and this is somehow Obama's fault?

So let me get this straight... Obama secretly orchestrated all these protests & riots in numerous foreign countries so he can suspend the First Amendment here in the U.S.?

And since when does the POTUS have the power to suspend parts of the Constitution on a whim?

"putting a huge target on the head of the First Amendment (and on that of every U.S. citizen who exercises that constitutional right). This is a constitutional coup."

First amendment: Congress shall make no law regarding establishment of religion.

Wing nut daily editorial: Nobody can have an abortion because it's against my sharia er religion.

The first amendment already has a head wound, inflicted by christianists.

With freedom comes responsibilites. Yes, you have the freedom to openly acknowledge your opinion. But where's the harm of respecting other people's genuine religious icons?

Sure, you don't have a right to not be offended, but what's the point of offend 1,6 billion people in one stroke? Especially when you know that YOU will probably not be blamed, but the country you live in will be, and your poorly made movie may be the cause of people being killed.

In the first place, Ms. Geller, we know you were soliciting sponsorship for this piece of cuck at least a year ago. In the second place, we know you did it with a view to inciting violence so you could prove to the world how "all" Muslims "really" are. In the third place, what "we" stand for in the world is Bush/Cheney penis-in-your-face diplomacy, which in the fourth place is what you are engaging in all these manipulations to reinstall in the first place.

What strange logic. The riots are about a video about Muhammad, which happened to originate in the United States, though I don't think the man who made it was an American.
Newsflash: People in other countries don't necessarily know or care about the US Constitution or its contents. How can everything be Obama's fault? And how does trying to calm things equal attacking the first amendment?
The people in these protests and attacks on embassies, etc, probably don't know and don't care what the first amendment is.

So far there have been exactly zero anti-freedom riots.

What the hell is this moron blathering on about?

Is she serious?!

She misses the whole point. Of course the riots have nothing to do with the U.S. government. That's the message they're trying to give to these religious fanatics: the U.S. government doesn't tell Americans what they can or can't say.

The demonstrations etc in the Middle East and elsewhere were organised and orchestrated by the Islamic version of the Tea Party. A small, unrepresentative group of delusional, right wing, fucknuckles who seek social dominance for their own parochial version of a freedom denying religious viewpoint.
In the countrys concerned, these medieval minded sockpuppets are derided and disowned by the vast majority of the citizenry,- witness the recent event in Benghazi - while, in the west, certain media organistations blow their influence out of all proportion to reality, in furtherance of their own agenda.

Pam, your continued freedom proves you're lying.

You seem to be confusing this event with 9/11 and the subsequent Patriot Act.

9/24/2012 8:47:46 AM

freako104

You realise Bush's Patriot Act was anti freedom and the rioters are using the video as a back to the riots?

9/24/2012 8:50:16 AM



"...they’re an attempt to get the U.S. to shut down free speech and criminalize criticism of Islam, in accord with Shariah blasphemy laws."

Well I'll agree with you there. But if you think that Obama will knuckle under to that you are seriously deluded.

People who kill people over a video piss me off. And those riots are probably connected in some ways to American foreign policy...

Also there was one fellow, I think from the UAE, who renewed a call for anti-blasphemy laws. So yes, these people don't like the idea of freedom of speech or expression.

And no, I'll not respect someone's religious icon just because they want me to. I try to be fair to people, but if I wanted to call Mohammad a violent paedophile I could very well do so and not care if I pissed anyone off. Though Mohammad was arguably neither of those things...

Saying Obama is in on it? Stupid.

i bet if someone made a video about how a certain palestinian goat herder i know of is a sex crazed, wine loving bisexual you wouldbe up in arms too. but im sure you would passively accept it as "their right to freedom of speech", right?

This guy's the crazy one? He's complaining about Obama throwing the victums under the bus by blaming a movie for them getting killed.

If Christians killed people every time they got offended, there'd be no atheists left alive. Time to actually step up and say this is crap instead of going "oh, but it's part of their culture" like they don't know any better.

@confused
You are very confused. You might want to think before posting.

Take a good look; that's what the US will look like in 10 years if we don't stop breeding people for jobs that will not be there. Jobs that cannot be there, because the relentless trend is toward more productivity, not semi-skilled labor which requires a lot of workers. A bunch of young people raised on religious fairy tales, a government that claims to have the approval of the head sky fairy, and nothing much to lose is a recipe for violence. Middle Eastern governments love distractions and conspiracy theories because they distract from government corruption and no viable plans for the future.

@stop groveling:

Christians are contaminated by Western values. They want to riot burn and lynch when they're offended, but the Western values they've absorbed partially restrain them, and the Western country/legal system they live in restrains them more.

Muslims lack both. They truly don't know any better.

Obama sure comes up with some Byzantine and "iffy" schemes to accomplish his nefarious goals.
