Posted on 08/20/2011 11:05:05 PM PDT by Nachum
Days after a jihadist had made violent threats against him, late-night comedian David Letterman tightened security at the Manhattan theater where he tapes his Late Show.
A source told the New York Post Friday that additional security precautions were taken at the Ed Sullivan Theater after a Muslim extremist called for Letterman's tongue to be cut out on Shumuka al-Islam forum, a popular Internet destination for radical Muslims.
"Is there not among you a Sayyid Nosair al-Mairi ... to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever?" a user identified as Umar Al-Basrawi wrote, referring to El Sayyid Nosair, who was convicted of the 1990 killing of Jewish Defense League founder Meir Kahane. Letterman is not Jewish.

Interesting to see what Letterman does on Monday....
Don’t worry about it Dave! It’s just some of that diversity and multiculturalism that’s all the rage these days. LOL!
I bet he blames GWB. Or the Tea Party.
He’ll probably convert to Islam.
He could always blame a Palin daughter.
Wait ... now he can blame a Palin granddaughter!
That gapped toothed SOB They could cut his tongue out without opening his mouth!
Seriously, these Jihadis need to get a life. WTF are they doing sitting up late night watching letterman?
I bet larry david really pisses them off.
A$$ Puppet and a Liberal Pu$$y! Look in Websters for a picture of him next to gap toothed idiot.
Letterman is talking to my HAND!!!..
I would hope that last bit of propaganda has been edited to include some fully orbed hyperbole...
I think Letterman is without a doubt one of the biggest jerks in the world and never watch him.
That being said..it annoys me that a bunch of..would issue a fatwa on him. In this country, we can say what we want. Agree or not agree.
Is this some kind of publicity stunt?
F’ Letterman. He’s a scumbag and a POS. I just might be rooting for the other side.
Why oh why dont they hit Bill Maher?
Isn't that racist?
[ I would hope that last bit of propaganda has been edited to include some fully orbed hyperbole... ]
Letterman deserves it.. he needs to feel his snark..
He has been running his mouth off for way too long..
If “something” strange happened to him.. its well deserved..
His barbs are many times outrageous.. deserving outrage..
He sometimes approaches bully status.. i.e. Palins kids..
Anyway, the guy sexually harassed most of his staff and is an meglomaniac liberal a$$. But his attorneys (and some of his Obama stash) took care of that.
He had been the biggest proponent of using his 1/3 inch soap box to bash conservatives and Christians since the 1980’s, as well as an appoligist for people who deny that all of the domestic terrorist since 9/11 have been related to the ‘religion of peace’.
F-him. I want him to jump on the liberal bandwagon and proclaim, on air, that he will donate all of his income for redistribution, since he is very, very rich.
It’s just not fair. He’s been such a good liberal dhimmi.
He’s competing with Maher for SOB of the NEW WORLD ORDER.
Funny thing is, Letterman is Presbyterian, not Jewish.
Maybe they are screed of pansy Bill?
They want to cut out Letterman’s tongue. Bill’s might be to acidic, even for them.
Yeah he is an ass. I just kinda like that NY wit.
You know, that seinfeld kind of sarcasm thats self mocking.
OH... Thats right, Letter man isnt self mocking ever, he is sanctimonious LoL
I think they are skeered they might get some on them.
Bet he does a top 10 list . . .
I watch Leno now. He is safe. LoL
david, that’s racist, beefing up your security and being cautious
Actually, Leno tracks to the right.
He does some good things for the service members to.
And, he has great taste in vintage motorcycles, LOL.
Come on, Dave! They just want to love on you! Your network says they love everyone...you should believe your bosses.
You could be right.
What a competition that is.
If either of the two were doing a routine in my front yard...I wouldn’t open the door.
You remember Dave - it’s the ‘religion of peace’...
You remember Dave - it’s the ‘religion of peace’...
No. LOL. Got a very early ‘48 Pan ‘old school chopped’ myself.... foot cluch and slap shift - yeah hah!
Letterman is a liberal ass, but if I have to pick a side in this fight, I damn sure won’t be siding with the Muslim jihadists.
You are a lucky man.
Ive never been a street rider but I could dig it if all the idiots got the **** off the road!
Oh, no way. Letterman is a tool, but Maher is pure evil.
Oh NOES... Letterman IS evil. Get over it, this is a man with power who hurts others.
That being said, I like the guy because he works hard, isn't an Elitist snob and he is a car guy.
I know people who have met him and he is the real deal, but he is a Democrat and try as he might, his Liberal views come through if you pay attention to what he is saying and how he treats people on our side of the aisle.
Letterman has no pretense, his Liberal bias is a badge of honor and his obnoxious behavior would never be tolerated if Democrats were his target instead of Republicans.
I feel bad for him....OK I lied. But I do remember the tale of the frog and scorpion. Bet Dave does now too.
I'll give him that. I will not hold any animosity to the ‘religion of peace’ if they follow through on old Gap Tooth.
You’re dead dave. your boy in the white house is one of them. you won’t finish your next top ten countdown. Now that’s funny! Don’t you wish you had Bush back now pervert?
>> Letterman is Presbyterian, not Jewish.
No matter. You make fun of Moose Limbs and we keel you.
Take that, Letterman, you Looney Muslim loving Lib.
While channel surfing tonight, I happened on his show. He had a fashion show for burkas..making fun of Muslims.
I read in several places a while back that he was well know by NY high class call girls.
Once he got what he deserved- and on live TV.
During ‘stupid pet trick night’ he had his ugly mug down in a dog’s face repeating in a stupid falsetto voice over and over ‘Hello doggie’- and the dog bit him on the nose.
The next night he showed up with a huge bandage on his nose.
I got a kick out of that. One of the best things I’ve seen on TV. LOL
Anybody else fortunate enough to see this?
They like the way his swollen lips look.
Gee, is Dave terrified of those eeeeevil Tea Partiers??
