"Hello? Is this President Morsi's office? . . . It is? Could you please put me through to him? . . . Yes, I'll wait. Thank you. . . . Dum de dum dum. . . . Yes, is this President Morsi? . . . Hello, Mohamed! This is Barack. . . . Barack Hussein Obama, you know, your brother from another mother. I'm calling from here in the United States. . . Yes, Mohamed, Allahu Akbar to you, too. . . . How am I? Well, I'm fine. Thanks for asking. And how about yourself? . . . You're fine, too. Good. I'm glad that we're both fine. . . . Now listen, Mohamed, about these embassy things. I just called to apologize to you VERY DEEPLY about what a bunch of infidels we have here in this country. . . . I know, I know, may they all be spat upon by camels and have their testicles crushed. . . . It's just, you see, we have this silly little 'freedom of speech' thing here in America, and, frankly, there's not much I can do about it at the moment. We're TRYING--believe me, we're trying--to do everything we can to stop them, but some of our folks are kind of, well, obstinate. . . . Yes, I know, Mohamed, it would be so much simpler if we just gunned them all down, but this is an election year, and that sort of thing would not go over too well. . . . So, what I guess I'm saying is: What do you want me to do to appease your crowds? . . . An apology tour through the Arab world? I could do that. Could it wait till after the election, though? I've got a lot of fundraisers to attend right now. . . . And, and what? Five billion dollars more in aid? We could do that. . . . Made out to your personal account? OK, let me talk to my people and I'll get back to you. . . . Fine. Alright then. And may a thousand virgins greet you in paradise, too, Mohamed. Bye now."
This past week has not exactly shown Our President at his best. The Appeaser-and-Apologizer-in-Chief has looked bewildered and befuddled as his "Arab Spring" has blown up in his face. It's a Spring Surprise! < /montypython >
What to do? What to do? I've got it! Blame some obscure filmmaker for the riots and try to shut him down! So what if the film is just an excuse the Muzzies are using for their bad behavior? And so what if we've got a First Amendment here that protects freedom of speech? We'll do it anyway!
Emperor Zero fiddles while Cairo and Benghazi and (fill in the blank) burn. But at least one DUmmie has dared to call out the Obozo adminstration on their bumbling and fumbling. DUmmie Fgiriun has done so here in this THREAD, "Seriously, what idiot in the administration thought it would be a good idea. . . ."
So let us now enter the Land of DUmmies, where even LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS sometime sneak in and post in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, promising you an EXTRA ADDED SURPRISE you won't want to miss toward the end of this DUFU, is in the [brackets]:
Seriously, what idiot in the administration. . . .
[I can tell already this is going to be a difficult question. There are so many idiots to choose from!]
Seriously, what idiot in the administration thought it would be a good idea to request Google to remove the film?
[Oh oh. Careful, DUmmie Fgiriun! You are treading on dangerous ice! One must not criticize Dear Leader!]
This plays right into the conservative talking points and does absolutely nothing other than buy into a failed notion of appeasement.
[Appease at any price.]
The film is not the cause of the protest and even if it were removing it from Youtube would have absolutely no effect on these people.
[Alright, everyone, say it with me: LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
This is absolutely disgraceful and could potentially cost Obama a lot of votes.
[DUmmie Fgiriun (75 posts), this post could potentially cost you a tombstone. . . . The DUmmies reply . . .]
I don't have a problem with it. It's a request.
Your concern has been noted.
[DUmmie Jeff In Milwaukee suspects DUmmie Fgiriun is a Concern Troll.]
Bullsh*t !!!! This is a wedge issue for desperate Fundies.
[DUmmie Fgiriun is accused of being a wedge-atarian. He then defends himself . . .]
People react to talking points. Although there is nothing menacing about submitting a request to potentially remove content based on the TOS, there are people who will falsely view this as a violation of the first amendment. The right wing is not the only group that has strong views regarding free speech.
[Nicely played, Fgiriun. You say "falsely view," even as you get your point across that this IS an attempt at intimidation!]
Great way to start your life on DU.
[Buh bye, Fgiriun, O ye of 75 posts!]
There is nothing wrong or disgraceful about this request.
["Nothing in Austria has changed." Thank you, Herr Zeller.]
You don't need much to get right winger panties in a wad these days. . . .
[This is giving them a wedgie.]
They are continually frothing at the mouth like rabid dogs. . . .
[Unlike these fellows . . .]
I'm an avid contributor on Reddit, which is very liberal in nature and there has been a lot of people who view this as a threat to free speech. I don't think it is, but most people don't consider the facts.
["I don't think it is." Yeah, right, Fgiriun. I see what you're doing.]
It troubles me too.
[An ally! Or else a Fgiriun sockpuppet.]
The actors involved should sue Google's @ss right now. I would. The film was done under false pretenses, and they have cause. F*** google.
[Now Google is the enemy. Must not suggest that the rioters themselves are responsible for the rioting.]
No, the target of the lawsuit should be the director and others. . . .
[Just not the rioters. Anyone but them.]
I definitely think this is NOT a First Amendment issue. Well, actually it is, but there are limitations even on the First Amendment.
[Insults against Islam, BAD, not protected. Insults against Christianity, GOOD, fair game! In fact, Christianity itself should be banned!}
I think this goes under the "Fire" in a crowded theater scenario. . . .
[I would say it goes under the "Rioters set a fire in an unprotected embassy" scenario.]
I actually doubt they could pursue a slander case against the Prophet.
[Like Mohammed, I am no prophet, but I predict such a case would get nowhere. Islam is a non-prophet organization. There is no god called "Allah," and Mohammed is his false prophet. Piss be upon them. I slam Islam.]
Freedom of speech isn't absolute. This film was like yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater. . . . It was purely an incitement to riot and it worked.
[Again with the "Fire in a crowded theater"! Show me where in the film it was calling on people to riot and burn down American embassies. Then you might have a point.]
I doubt half the people partaking in the protests have even seen the video.
[So, actually, it's like yelling "Fire!" in an EMPTY theater.]
I bet over half the protesters don't even know what they are protesting. They look like a bunch of punk kids to me.
[They're like the Occupy Kids of the Middle East.]
I have had the unfortunate duty of listening to the Fox Radio Network for a couple of weeks now, and they are already in what the German general staff used to call Wolkenkuckucksheim, "cloud cuckoo land," the fantasy-land from which the Fuhrer issued his unworkable orders in the waning days of World War II.
[Obama is in Wasdasficksheim, "WTF Land," in which Dear Leader is letting Eric Himmler Holder and Hillary von Ribbentrop Clinton run the show in the waning days of his administration.]
The right-wingers? F*** 'em. You know what they were b*tching all this week? The fact that President Obama doesn't attend Presidential Intelligence Briefings. . . .
[The Campaigner-in-Chief has more important things to do.]
Nothing wrong with that request. "Failed notion of appeasement"? Sounds like a Hannity talking point.
[DUmmie Fgiriun is on the verge of in-hannity.]
Guess I'm an idiot, too. I think it SHOULD be taken down. Period.
[Let's take down the First Amendment, too, while we're at it.]
Seriously. . . . What idiot let this troll in?
[We LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS are everywhere!!! Hee! Hee!]
[Speaking of idiots, we now turn to the promised EXTRA ADDED SURPRISE I told you about earlier. And it is . . Pitt! Yes, William Rivers Pitt, Pied Piper Pitt, has an important announcment to make, here in this THREAD . . .]
First trimester accomplished, two more to go.
[Wha-- WHAAT?? What are you talking about, Pitt? Is it what I think?]
Yes, I'm going to be a father.
[STOP THE PRESSES! PITT IS REPRODUCING!!]
Mom and baby are as healthy as healthy can be.
[Notice, Pitt calls it, at just three months along, a "baby." I guess it's a "baby" if you want it; otherwise, it's just some unwanted tissue you can dispose of. Thus Pitt displays the unaware hypocrisy of the pro-abort crowd.]
So there's that.
[Congratulations, Proud Papa Pitt! I didn't know you had it in ya!]
Congratulations! I always pictured you to be an old geezer.
[Well, he's getting there. The 40-Year-Old Insurgent is going to be a 41-Year-Old Father.]
I have a feeling we are in for lots more cute.
[Let's hope the kid takes after his mother. Otherwise, William Pitt the Younger could end up looking like William Pitt the Elder:]
I'm sure your mom is just loving this too.
[To which DUmmie Raven, aka Mother Pitt, the Grandma-to-be, responds . . .]
YOU BET I AM!!!!! I walked into TJ MAX yesterday and the baby clothes just hit me in the face.
[Careful, DUmmie Raven! Watch where you're going! Stay IN the aisle!]
Went home with little undershirts, tiny bodysuits and a few other things. What fun!
[OK, so you did your regular shopping for Wee Willie. But what did you get for the kid?]
All RIGHT! We need more little Pitts in this world.
[More Pitts. God help us. I just HOPE this little child grows up to be a conservative Rethuglican! Wouldn't THAT be FUn!]
Not that there's anything WRONG with that....
You can't tell the idiots from each other without a scorecard.
Pitt-iful, just Ptt-iful
Note how it is merely the political impact which offends this DUmmie, not the impropriety of the chilling effect on free speech.
Yeah, how crazy of us. I mean, it's not like anything might actually happen or anything. You know, like embassies being stormed, ambassadors being assassinated, or military bases being sabotaged or anything.
I sure hope Pitt’s wife was more successful in quitting smoking than he was. It’s frightening to think of any kid getting high infusions of nicotine while still in the womb.
No, seriously, I mean it. A 100% non-snakry post.
Top 20! Kneel before Zod!
So, all of this violence perpetuated by radical Islamists encouraged by a weak and muddled foreign policy is somehow really the fault of (Christian) fundamentalists?
I also enjoy the use of "desperate" in there, working in the current Obama meme that the skewed polling results shows an imploding political scene for Republicans.
Same here. We really are happy for the Pitt family and we do wish them all well. Life is a beautiful gift from God.
It might change Pitt’s outlook when he thinks about the rights of the not yet born. Stranger things have happened.
Another Pitt? What? Would this make three generations of Pitts on welfare?
No fair - my husband was 43 when our daughter was born - and if it is possible, that now 14yo young lady is further to the right of daddy, who makes me look like a leftwing loon........
Watching the sonogram might actually drive him sane.
I believe that change is possible for anyone. Having children will certainly make folks look at things in a
different light. May the blessing of parenthood open
Situational ethics in full flower.
Meanwhile, my bogus DUmmy account closes in on the 600 post mark. So far, so good.
I have noticed that my DUmmy alter ego, one Jack Pine Radical has been quite these days. I guess I need to toss an energy bar over the top of my cubical and into his lap.
What can you say to people who are too stupid to recognize when their political class is trying to strip them of Constitutional rights?
they closed my account after about a week, and I was always polite and courteous, but often played “devil’s advocate”, politely asking provocative questions or pointing out inconsistencies. I do far worse here on FR and have never really had any grief. Those guys are incredibly thin skinned.
The term goes back to back to Aristophanes, Hitler used it (in its German version) in Mein Kampf to characterize his political opponents. There is a certain irony in a DUmmie misattributing a term Hitler used to characterize his political opponents to characterize Fox News.
Will Pitt the elder be jealous of the little Pittster when he has more hair than Pops does?
haha I could hear Pres. Muffley’s voice in my head as I was reading! (Great dialogue in that movie, every scene a winner)
Wow — THAT was an unexpected twist...uh...wait...Pitt’s BREEDING????? AUUUUUUUGH! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!!

13. No disagreement
I'm not in favor of DMCA takedowns which I view as a serious threat to our free speech. I believe the request was made with good intentions but the political repercussions were not considered.
Response to Fgiriun (Reply #13)Sat Sep 15, 2012, 02:57 PM progressivebydesign (17,754 posts)
36. Maybe because our President doesn't CARE about the political repercussions, but about Americans well being overseas. Unlike the republicans that do EVERYTHING for a political reason, our President and his extremely experienced advisors, know the difference. President Obama would rather lose the election than put our personnel and citizens in jeopardy in the ME.
This, about the MOST political and LEAST experienced POTUS probably ever. The ONE thing obozo does NOT care about is American lives, here or abroad. Lives in the ME are a small price to pay for another immaculation.
Better still to hit the links and have drinks with jay-zee.
Skinner: "Are we gonna lose?"
Skinner: "Are we gonna lose big?"
Skinner: "How big?"
DUmmies: "Real big."
Skinner: "Are we gonna get creamed?"
DUmmies: "We're gonna get annihilated!"
Skinner: "Well, alright!"
(Everyone cheers while the Obama team looks annoyed and Jay Carney looks scared)
Obama: "We gotta get a new pep club."
Jay Carney: "And some life insurance. Romney is gonna kill us."
I can picture baby Pitt now
President Merkin Muffley is exactly who I thought of when reading it. That scene from Dr Strangelove(1) jumped right into my head. One of Peter Sellers best movies, so many roles, whatta genius he was.
(1) Dr 'Merkwürdigeliebe' ;-)

Rent-a-mob is available in the muslime world as well as the USA. They use signs written in English, a language they can't read to start with.
Hello? Hello, Dimitri? Listen, I can't hear too well, do you suppose you could turn the music down just a little? Oh, that's much better. Yes. Fine, I can hear you now, Dimitri. Clear and plain and coming through fine. I'm coming through fine too, eh? Good, then. Well then as you say we're both coming through fine. Good. Well it's good that you're fine and I'm fine. I agree with you. It's great to be fine. Now then Dimitri. You know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the bomb. The bomb, Dimitri. The hydrogen bomb. Well now what happened is, one of our base commanders, he had a sort of, well he went a little funny in the head. You know. Just a little... funny. And uh, he went and did a silly thing. Well, I'll tell you what he did, he ordered his planes... to attack your country. Well let me finish, Dimitri. Let me finish, Dimitri. Well, listen, how do you think I feel about it? Can you imagine how I feel about it, Dimitri? Why do you think I'm calling you? Just to say hello? Of course I like to speak to you. Of course I like to say hello. Not now, but any time, Dimitri. I'm just calling up to tell you something terrible has happened. It's a friendly call. Of course it's a friendly call. Listen, if it wasn't friendly, ... you probably wouldn't have even got it. They will not reach their targets for at least another hour. I am... I am positive, Dimitri. Listen, I've been all over this with your ambassador. It is not a trick. Well I'll tell you. We'd like to give your air staff a complete run down on the targets, the flight plans, and the defensive systems of the planes. Yes! I mean, if we're unable to recall the planes, then I'd say that, uh, well, we're just going to have to help you destroy them, Dimitri. I know they're our boys. Alright, well, listen... who should we call? Who should we call, Dimitri? The people...? Sorry, you faded away there. The People's Central Air Defense Headquarters. Where is that, Dimitri? In Omsk. Right. Yes. Oh, you'll call them first, will you? Uh huh. Listen, do you happen to have the phone number on you, Dimitri? What? I see, just ask for Omsk Information. I'm sorry too, Dimitri. I'm very sorry. Alright! You're sorrier than I am! But I am sorry as well. I am as sorry as you are, Dimitri. Don't say that you are more sorry than I am, because I am capable of being just as sorry as you are. So we're both sorry, alright? Alright. Yes he's right here. Yes, he wants to talk to you. Just a second. . . .
One of the all time best movies. “Try A Little Tenderness”.
Wow! Mini-you is now 14! Now that IS making me feel old, which is not fair while I am vacationing in Vegas. It is great sitting at a bar smoking.
