Skip to comments.Flagged (Obama submits to the Brotherhood...)
Posted on 09/14/2012 12:31:19 PM PDT by bronxville
President Barack Obama has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhoods demand that the federal government suppress a satirical video of Islams prophet, Muhammad.
The request complies with the Sept. 13 demand and threat by the brotherhood, which now governs the Arabs worlds largest country, Egypt.
Hurting the feelings of one and a half billion Muslims cannot be tolerated, and we demand that all those involved in such crimes be urgently brought to trial, according to an English-language statement on the brotherhoods website.
The brotherhoods demand included a threat of additional violence during Obamas re-election campaign.
The peoples anger and fury for their Faith is invariably predictable, often unstoppable, said the website. [...]
The submission came shortly after White House spokesman Jay Carney publicly disavowed any plans to curb free speech.
Obamas re-election campaign is being held hostage by Morsi, said Michael Rubin, an expert on Islamist parties at the American Enterprise Institute.
In response, Obama should repeatedly declare the First Amendment bars U.S. government action against Islams critics, and should also threaten to cut off much-needed financial aid to Egypt, Rubin said.

Keep caving in obama, that’s sure to work.
No......really?......their feelings are hurt?.......well, that explains killing Americans then......glad they cleared that up.....
Well it didn’t bother Hussein that US property was destroyed...maybe when he learns a KFC was burned in Lebanon, he’ll react. [Oh, I forgot, he doesn’t attend intelligence briefings]
The people are free to do that, not censorship.
The government can not, that is censorship.
Well, if anyone followed the Constitution anyway.
Appeasement is a poor foreign policy strategy.
Has anyone actually seen this video? Is there anything in it that is untrue? I'm wondering about this because I know that much about Mohammad which is true would be offensive to any rational human being .... Muslim or otherwise .... like the fact that he was an epileptic murderous pedophile who believed camel urine is good to drink and the sun hides in a swamp at night.
Carney may or may not be aware that excluding offensive speech has long been a position of Leftish legal scholars. The idea is simple, any speech that is intended to offend, taunt or provoke any other group may be limited under as fighting words or as “yelling fire in a crowded theatre”. It is often referred to as “offensive speech” and “hate speech” and is commonly banned in Canada and Europe.
Of course one of the most obvious weaknesses of banning offensive speech is that the government in power has great influence over what is considered offensive. Bye, bye Rush.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The former first amendment to the former US Constitution.
Well, it was so boring and badly put together, I am offended it’s being called a movie.
Okay..say he’s defending the peaceful Muslim though this is getting way out of hand by many people on both sides of the government.
There are two kinds of peace. One is the honorable and valuable prevention of initiation of force and aggression which is resistance and self-defense. The other is the lack of resistance to force and aggression which is either obedience or appeasement and which means submission and which is the peace of cowards and slaves.
Great, because we all know that giving in to temper tantrums always prevents more tantrums.
Should Obama step aside and save America from the Jihad against him....should the Mullahs demanding this Jihad be quietly removed?
Haven’t we a ‘war’ on bullies in our schools just now?
These people are all bullies thinking America will fold up and knuckle under to them! We should all post pigs on you tube with whatever comes to mind. I really dislike bullies.
