David Letterman Beefs Up Security After Jihadist Threat
fox news ^ | 8/20/11 | Allison McGevna

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.

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?

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..

You have to admit though, that Drew Barrymore got his/her rocks off exposing herself for him (on air = Liberal Class Act). Its a liberal thing to be out of touch with reality I think.

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.

Roll out Cat Stevens as his musical guest. Make some equalizing joke about Christians, and make it seem like he makes jokes about everybody. Make some statement about how it was just humor, and that the Muslim religion has a great history, and is a great religion. Belittle some other religion. “See you are better then these people”. “I really didn't mean you were inferior”. “Our next guest coming up is-——,” and commercial break.

Leno is a Leftist.

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.

Yeah, but he was one of the first Late Nights to actually bring it on to O'SpendsALot and the Left of neutral congress critters.

I'll give him that. I will not hold any animosity to the ‘religion of peace’ if they follow through on old Gap Tooth.

.

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?
