It is amazing how the Obama Administration has promoting the idea that a YouTube film trailers incited the region-wide Muslim riots on 9/11.
- It was the anniversary of 9/11 duh! Every U.S. facility abroad should have been on high alert. Unnecessary travel restricted and sensitive documents secured. With an increased threat level and adequate protection by U.S. Marine sentries and other protective personnel. Each host government should have been queried as to their preparations for civil unrest. That is standard procedure – and yet it seems to be violated in any number of individual instances.
- To cover-up or excuse their stunning negligence which led to this tragedy – including the possibility that host governments provided credible intelligence up to 48-hours prior to the events of 9/11 – the Obama administration appears to be advancing the idea that this was all a spontaneous response to a YouTube film trailer. Ignoring the appearance of coordination in a region-wide effort.
- If you look at the crowds, this had to be pre-arranged. And, if you believe media reports, it was arranged in the open – possibly using Facebook and Twitter.
- And isn’t telling that most of the people shown in the crowd scenes are poor, illiterate, probably have no access to computers, have never seen YouTube or even know what YouTube is – and seem to be controlled by the religious crazies who are capitalizing on the YouTube pretext to obscure their role in the attack.
So why is the media so quick to condemn the filmmakers and openly disregard their rights to free speech and to speak truth to power? Openly fingering film participants and making American vulnerable to Muslim attack – all for political purposes to cover up the fact that the Obama administration has a failed foreign policy, is weak on national defense and makes a practice of apologizing for America while praising Muslims and their anti-civilization message.
Media for Christ, Company Allegedly Behind 'Innocence of Muslims'
The Christian nonprofit Media for Christ reportedly took out a permit for a ‘Sam Bossil’ production that appears to have become the incendiary Innocence of Muslims, which has been linked to the violence in Egypt and Libya. Marlow Stern reports.
The cast of the film Innocence of Muslims, which reportedly helped spark violence across the Middle East, says they were duped by the movie’s producer and only signed up for a sword-and-sandals epic called Desert Warriors that had nothing to do with the Prophet Muhammad. That producer, who initially went by the pseudonym “Sam Bacile,” is reported to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a California-based Coptic Christian who spent two days in jail and received three years’ probation after being arrested for “intent to manufacture methamphetamine” in 1997, and was convicted on federal bank fraud charges in 2010.
So far, Nakoula is being painted as the fall guy after a 13-minute preview for the incendiary film, dubbed over in Arabic and uploaded to YouTube, reportedly helped trigger protests in Egypt and Libya that left the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi burned and the U.S ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, dead, along with three other Americans. But what about the company behind the amateurish video, which depicts Muhammad as a sex-crazed sadist prone to acts of unspeakable violence? Media for Christ, a Christian nonprofit organization based in Duarte, Calif., took out a film permit for the production of Desert Warriors, according to spokesmen at Film LA, Inc., and the office of the County of Los Angeles. <Source: “Media for Christ, Company Allegedly Behind 'Innocence of Muslims' - The Daily Beast>
Where are Michael Moore and all the other filmmakers who demand artistic freedom for “their” socialist propaganda? Shouldn’t they be marching and speaking out to protect one of their own independent filmmakers?
Bottom line …
The Obama Administration is, once again, ignoring the rights of Americans to engage in free speech and religious diversity, while apologizing to the Muslims for America’s citizens.
President Obama should have said: “Unlike the Muslims, America has guaranteed freedoms. Freedom of speech. Freedom of Religion.” Each American citizen has the right to say what they believe without government censorship or interference. We will protect our citizens and property here and abroad and it is up to the host nation to enforce the protection of U.S. assets located in foreign lands. If these nations allow people to openly riot in the streets, that is their business. If they attack U.S. citizens or property, we will use force, if necessary, to secure our people and property. If those responsible for the acts of 9/11 are not found and surrendered to the United States within a sufficient period of time, we will suspend all foreign aid and assistance to the offending country. If no action is taken after a deadline date, then all financial transactions through U.S. financial institutions will be halted and asset forfeiture considered. It’s up to you. Good evening.”
Wishful thinking, of course, because President Obama appears to be welcoming ANY distraction from his record of malfeasance and non-performance.
But he didn’t …
FEDs Hunt Anti-Muslim Filmmaker Rather than People Who Killed US Ambassador
The filmmaker of the anti-Islam film lives in the United States. If this is true, then why is our government tracking down any filmmaker for any reason? Let’s rehearse the First Amendment for our government officials:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
In addition to protecting “the free exercise of religion,” even if it’s one religion criticizing another religion, the First Amendment also prohibits our national government from interfering with speech and the press.
Every day in America people attack worldviews they don’t agree with. Some do it with factual statements and reasoned argumentation, and others try to make their case with satire and ridicule. The First Amendment was put into place to protect people from tyrants who would use their power to prohibit speech that was critical of the way the governed.
King James I of England detested the Geneva Bible, first published in 1560, because he believed it questioned the divine right of kings. He did a novel thing. He commissioned a group of scholars to produce a new translation. We know it today as the Authorized Version or more popularly known as the King James Version of the Bible.
Sometimes the best way to deal with a critic is to ignore him. If this anti-Muslim film is so bad, the Muslims should have ignored it or produced an answer to it. Like fascists and tyrants of the past, they use terror to force compliance.
Just because you’re able to shut someone up doesn’t mean that you’ve convinced that person that your position is correct.
We need to replace the corrupt, inept and incompetent Barack Obama – along with the democrats in the House and Senate – with constitutional conservatives who will uphold, protect and defend our Constitution while insuring the safety of America and her citizens in venues both foreign and domestic.
