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.
ROMNEY/RYAN 2012 GET OUT THE VOTE
Maybe Obama and the democrats are the ones who really riled up the muzzies with all their bragging at the DNC convention about killing Osama bin-Laden.
After all - the muzzie mob was chanting Obama’s name, not the names of Sam Bacile or Pastor Terry Jones.
Maybe Obama, the Obama administration, and all the blood thirsty democrats who were spiking the ball over killing bi-Laden should be accused of inciting the crazy muslims to commit murder.
(got this idea from Rush)
Yep, she looks pretty angry to me.
“The answer is because Americans hate themselves.”
Well, at least the 43% who are stupid/corrupt/lazy enough to be 0bama supporters.
The reason why liberals love Muslims so much is because Muslims hate America as much as they do
Do you think she would support punishing anyone who insults Christ or his followers?
of course not.
And the 0bama Fascists go marching along
Your absolutely right, the protestors NEVER mentioned the movie. They weren’t cheering death to the filmmaker, all the chants were about Obama, NOT the film
Calling GWB a 'war criminal' while American troops are in harm's way warrants a jail sentence far more than some amateur filmmaker mocking the 'religion' of our avowed enemies on Youtube.
It’s OK to mock Christians, though, because they won’t kill you for it.
But these same people will lick the boots of Muslims—because Muslims are “devout” and need to be respected.
The hypocrisy simply boggles the mind.
this had nothing to do with the movie, ,honestly the left since 2000 have become unhinged , have no idea what laws and the constitution is about and we have these kind of idiots in our colleges , stunning.
so most of us here in the south and the midwest and AK start to fight back , go after the homostapo at their parades and lets see if the lunatic left is alright with that and stop mocking and being bigoted towards Christians
Anthea Butler: That is one fat and ugly woman...
Must remember I am not allowed to use the “N” word; the “Murdering Muslims” words; the “Obama is an Kenyan” words, the “Mohammad is a Pedophile” words.....All can result in your legally sanctioned murder and/or imprisonment.
I wouldn’t bet the ranch on that. It’s possible that day may come.
Throw a burka on her.
Note how often vocal libs are ugly angry looking people. They identify with everything twisted and bent because they are angry, ugly, evil human beings whose character is stamped on their visages.
Any embassy is sovereign soil so this is the same as attacking America. It happened in a foreign country, so it’s not some shadowy group or somewhere out at sea. So with this in mind when do we start bombing Libya?
Foolish prof doesn’t understand that Muslim savages commit murder because, well, they’re Muslim savages.
Any pretext will do.
“Today is Wednesday. Let’s commit an atrocity, because that’s what Mohammed would do.”
“Oh, the sun is shining, I think that I will murder an infidel, or if I can’t find one, I will call someone else an apostate or a blasphemer, murder him and then rape his wife - because my holy book commands it and I want to go to paradise.”
“I can’t believe that it’s September already. Time to murder someone in the name of Allah.”
What ever happened to;
Sticks and Stones
May Break My Bones
Can Never Hurt Me
It's abortion think; Somebody commits a crime and a baby gets the death sentence without a trial.
I don’t know. I think it goes beyond that. Self loathing, envy, jealousy and loathing of this country in young people is being manufactured in schools.
It also exists in liberal adults, and they pass it to their children as if it is duty.
It is growing at a fast rate, and it will continue exponentially with new children.
They are making the people that they need, and it starts very early in life.
Another good reason why I never send money to my alma mater......
To paraphrase Obama’s radical Chicago minister Wright, “Obama’s chickens have come home to roost”.
Pot scrubbing hair.
Sent a juicy note to Penn’s abuse email address.
Yeah, I feel abused.
Jail Anthea .......for threatening to impede the First Amendment Rights of another.
