Good Morning. How soon is Sam Bacile going to be in jail folks? I need him to go now.When Americans die because you are stupid...

Anthea Butler is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The title of her most recent book, The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palins Tea Party Angels Are Galvanizing the Religious Right, gives you a pretty good idea of where she stands politically.
This morning, she strongly implied that Sam Bacile is responsible for yesterdays embassy attacks and, as a result, should be tossed into jail.
Bacile is an Israeli filmmaker who lives in California and has gone into hiding. He made the crappy movie that is being used as a pretext to justify the violence that erupted in Egypt and Libya yesterday.
But is making a movie that makes Muslims angry a crime? Butler appears to think so.
Of course, like any academic, Butler purports to support free speech rights:
And yes, I know we have First Amendment rights,but if you don't understand the Religion you hate, STFU about it. Yes, I am ticked off. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

But it is clear that she gets most excited when arguing that those rights are highly circumscribed:
@blmoyer And people do to jail for speech. First Amendment doesn't cover EVERYTHING a PERSON says. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

I am all for free speech, but you better damn well understand that actions have consequences, and what you mock is another persons belief. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

@jason_a_hines the murder of the Ambassador and the employees is wrong, wrong. But Bacile will have to face his actions which he had freedom Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

Sounds like Anthea Butler, Sally Kohn, and Mike Barnicle would get along swimmingly.

Update: Butler has gone into CYA-mode and locked her Twitter account.
Good. Now I am going to have the PERFECT defense....
The Butler did it.
Probably could not take what was coming at her on Twitter.
It's OK to mock Christians, though, because they won't kill you for it.
Yet these liberals love Bill Maher who insults all conservatives.
Free speech for me but not for thee...
Fine. Apply the same standard to Obie and we may be able to talk...
So logically, if someone is angered by her tweet and kills her family, she should be charged as an accessory murder.
Americans died because muslims are stupid.
Americans died because muslims killed them.
More Americans are also going to die, because Americans are stupid.
Why do Americans blame themselves and other Americans for killings that were committed by someone else entirely?
The answer is because Americans hate themselves.
Butler talks like a Nazi. Or at least a commie. We don’t do that kind of sh*t in our country Anthea.
WHY did I google her picture? Look up UGLY in the dictionary and you will see her picture.
What if “Fomenting foreign or domestic terrorism on the internet” was against the law?
“What I saw at the coup.”
Any democrats who love the new progressive/islamic marriage in their party and at the convention better study who is the side groveling when there is a conflict between American free speech and islam. Progressives invited islamics into their party thinking they will be useful votes, but then can be controlled after the revolution comes are slightly mistaken.
Liberty really bothers liberals.
Somebody ought to inform this towering intellectual that it wasn't the idiotic filmmaker that set off our overly-sensitive muzzie friends, it was this:
"Osama is Dead / GM is Alive" - Hussein Obama campaign slogan.
To Butler and all those who agree with her:
Too F’n bad if the Mohammedans are upset over a movie about their goat-humping, child-molesting flim-flam artist. Mohammedism is NOT a religion; it is a cult of hate. It has no place in a civilized world.
And to Butler and her fellow travelers, if you are so in love with Mohammedans - put on a burqa. You and I will both be pleased on the improvement in your looks.
I wonder if this woman preaches so loudly about the consequences of unprotected sex and what that might lead to?
Homegirl has that crazy Cynthia McKinney thing going on.
this attack on Americans, on September 11th, had NOTHING to do with some youtube movie, I wonder if that professor realizes that? The murderers were chanting, Obama Obama, there are a billion Osamas. Even the regime can’t hide that fact now.
