'Innocence of Muslims': Administration asks YouTube to review video
Los Angeles Times ^ | September 13, 2012, 4:08 p.m. | By Dawn C. Chmielewski

Administration officials have asked YouTube to review a controversial video that many blame for spurring a wave of anti-American violence in the Middle East.

The administration flagged the 14-minute "Innocence of Muslims" video and asked that YouTube evaluate it to determine whether it violates the site's terms of service, officials said Thursday. The video, which has been viewed by nearly 1.7 million users, depicts Muhammad as a child molester, womanizer and murderer -- and has been decried as blasphemous and Islamophobic.

YouTube declined comment on the administration request.

Earlier in the week, YouTube said it found that the video was "clearly within" its guidelines, which bar sexually explicit content, gratuitous violence, hate speech and what it termed "bad stuff" such as animal abuse, under-age drinking and bomb-making.

Harsher words and tougher actions for the guy who made this movie than for the Islamists threatening and murdering us.

Isn’t Obamaland great?

Now go pay your taxes - Islamist militants need the money. :)

If this is true, we have far worse enemies within than without.

For you video collectors out there I recommend “Download Helper”, a FireFox add-on, if you would like to save this video to your own computer. It may well disappear from YouTube at any time.

The video is pretty weak acting-wise, dialogue-wise and production-wise but the video itself is very, very high quality HD. Clearly much of it was done against a green-screen with high quality cameras.

Not that the video has anything to do with anything.

Could You Be A Criminal? US Supports UN Anti-Free Speech Measure

Going just as Islam wants. Just think, they even made headway on 9/11 2012. Shariah for the world...

I suppose when Israel eventually bombs Iran, Israel can say it was over a youtube video put out by the Iranian gov’t.

The article states "The video, which has been viewed by nearly 1.7 million users, depicts Muhammad as a child molester, womanizer and murderer"

Well let's see he married a 6 yr old child, thought women were property to be handled and demands anyone who doesn't agree to be killed.

I would say the description fits and would add that he was scum.

Oh can I say that or will I be investigated!!

So our government and the Obama POS is censoring a video on youtube. And the media is not covering this.

Yes , Obama and our U.S. government are the enemy of the Amrica people, the enemy of freedom of speech, and the enemy of freedom. democrats and Obama need to be stopped.

To be fair, this article was from the Los Angeles Times...

sorry for “tinfoil hat”,
but this is bizarre...
1) youtube has pulled MANY “anti-muslim” videos, that were much more mild. (and much higher quality!)
2) supposedly this video is getting people killed, and liberals are calling for the creator to be arrested.
yet, none of those liberals are demanding the video simply be pulled ?

That’s just one newspaper and on what page will that be on?

The media chooses which story they will make every American ( or most Americans) talk about . And this one they won’t . that’s what I meant. That’s how the media controls people and this country.

You think the media is fair. you are just another puppet.

“depicts Muhammad as a child molester, womanizer and murderer”

The only thing I see wrong with this statement is that it doesn’t state - but only implies - that Muhammad was a worthless asshole and the world would have been far better off had his mother found a way to abort him.

I dont think he’s calling for censorship, but after seeing MANY things pulled, he’s wondering why THIS one isn’t. What is the REASON for this being up so long? After all the problems it is SUPPOSEDLY causing, YOUTUBE would be remiss for not banning it, and yet, there it is for ALL the world to see.

The tin foil hat part kind of gave that away.

Sorry to jump in the middle of your argument.

BTW does anyone have a direct link to this video?

Yep.

No this vidoe exposes Islam for the threat it is. So youtube should leave it. but it's up to youtube, as they are a private company and neither you nor the government has any right to use FORCE or the threat of force against youtube to take it down.

This video exposes Islam in 2 ways . first the reaction by Muslims shows that Islam is a cult and a threat to the world. 2. The content of this video exposes Muhammad for the pervert he was and that Islam is a lie. So you are all afriad of truth and intimidated by Islam . wtf and on this site? amazing.

Youtube and this film maker should be praised for their bravery in exposing this evil that is on Earth , this evil called Islam. you are against freedom .

” you are against freedom “

OK REALLY?!? Did you even READ my post? NO WHERE did I call for them to remove it. READ MY PREVIOUS POST. From all I have read, they have banned BETTER quality stuff FASTER. WHY IS THIS ONE OK? There is a reason. THATS the question I am asking. (For example; I think the govt is by it’s lack of doing ANYTHING about ANY of the stuff going on in the world right now, embassies being attacked, protested against, etc, it SEEMS to ME like our govt WANTS us in a war and...IN A HURRY!)

I even asked for a freaking link. OBVIOUSLY you have seen it, could you post it here, so we people who are “ against freedom “ can see too?

>>...depicts Muhammad as a child molester

He was a child molester. He married a six year old and I believe consumated that marriage when she was 9.

...womanizer

Women are dogs to muzzies.

... and murderer

Yes... very true. Murder is their calling card.

-- and has been decried as blasphemous and Islamophobic.

Blasphemy towards Satan and his minions is a good thing. And who isn't afraid of a rabid dog? I certainly am. Which means that it's not a phobia since it's a perfectly rational fear.

I know for a fact that DHS has ordered plenty of you-tube videos be taken down. In the reason for the take down you-tube names the complaintant (often a government agency) and reason as not being in compliance with you-tube community standards.

So this is all bs play acting on Obammy’s part.

I've noticed that arguing with idiots around here seldom accomplishes anything. So no, I'm not planning on responding to rurgan.
