Jay Carney: These protests are directed at an offensive movie, not at the United States
Hotair ^

Posted on 09/14/2012 7:30:23 PM PDT by chessplayer

Via Mediaite. I’m not sure how to square this with the fact that in Tunisia today they were chanting, “Obama, Obama, we are all Osamas,” since I’m pretty sure the Egyptian Copt who produced the Mohammed movie isn’t named “Obama.”

Go look at the map of today’s protests assembled by the Atlantic. To the extent that anyone involved actually cares about the movie, what they care about is the fact that the U.S. government refuses to censor it. The government would like to censor it, clearly, but they’re barred by the First Amendment; Islamist totalitarians have trouble with that concept, though, so they’re holding the White House responsible for the film’s publication despite Carney’s obsequious stammering over how mean and disgusting and reprehensible and awful it is. They’re protesting the idea of free speech, in other words, which is supposed to be — supposed to be — “U.S. policy.”

That’s not an effigy of Obama they’re burning - it’s an effigy of the film maker. That’s the ticket...

So, your basic muslim is so weak minded that he will riot against some trailers from a movie.
Muslim are not bright enough to riot against the West.

I think Jay just served up some more red meat to up set even more Muslims

This is a joke. These same people that are so offended have some of the most offensive views toward JEWS and denigrate their religion on a daily basis all over the middle east.

Hey Carney boy. What did Stevens and the other Americans murdered during this latest iteration of Barry and Hillary’s “Arab Spring” have to do with that so called “movie”? Hmmmmm?

Jay, Jay, at what point do you finally look in the mirror one morning and say 'I cannot defend the indefensible anymore'? and just twitter in your resignation?

Sheer coincidence that this blew up on 9/11.

Islamists, being the tolerant, peaceful planet-lovers that they are where deeply offended by the you-tube video that no one has really yet seen or cares to.

The mere fact that a (theoretically) freedom-loving country did not execute the progenitors has excited them to riot.

They would riot if a hair fell off a pig flying over Islamadamabad and Mullah Achmedinajihadabad said to.

Remember the Crusades!

The world is aflame with crazed rioters/killers for the past few days over a 12 minute spot on the internet?

Jay Carney didn’t even believe this himself - you could tell he knew how stupid it sounded as he said it.

Let’s hear again what a wonderful religion this is. If it’s such a peaceful religion, why are they so savage? What a joke.

“To have Peace in our time”....The US must repeal the 1st Amendment!

You just gotta feel sorry for Jay Carney. He reminds you of the kid that you used to give wedgies to in High School and wondered what happened to him..Yep he became a Jay Carney.
Well isn’t it obvious that these protests have nothing to do with America or its policies. Let’s see, they are chanting “Death To America” they are chanting “Obama, Obama, we are ALL Osamas” they are burning American flags, they are putting Osama’s name with graffiti paint on our embassies, they are wearing T-shits with “Down with USA” on them. Gee, isnt it obvious these “peaceful muslims” just love us and want to give us big hugs

Ok, I get it.

Those are not 24 U.S. Embassies being attacked. Those are not our flags being torn down and burned. Shouts of “death to America” does not mean death to America.

That was not an American Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, that was murdered. Those were not two Navy SEALs and another American citizen that were murdered.

Yes, I see it now. I thank Obama and his administration for the clarity, because I was starting to get just a wee bit nervous.

I know that I will now sleep much better knowing that a very capable and competent leadership is taking care of us now.

Allah Snack bar..... Alibaba baby.

Speaking of stupid .... got something in an email today.

Picture of a grinning Obama & he's saying:
Some people say I'm stupid. Really? Here's how stupid I am: I was hired by 69 million voters who didn't even do a routine background check. I'm doing a lousy, stinking job, with a record number of people out of work. I gave guns to Mexican drug gangs, I kill innocent people all over the world with drone strikes, and I decide which laws I'm going to enforce and which ones I won't. I've doubled the deficit. I've ruined our healthcare system. And yet, I still stand an excellent change of being re-hired. That's how stupid I am. How stupid are you?

muslims are bright enough to be scared to riot against the real West - the ARMED West.

muslim reprobates can't even control their own penis long enough to view a woman sans burka - they are afraid of their own impulses. muslims are childish impotent fools who will only attack the true West (the ones they really hate) when they believe they have stifled free speech, or when our arms have been removed by fiat - without the playing field leveled to their sub-standard competence, they tremble in fear.

Those thoughtless worshipers of false gods will NEVER take from us what is ours. That's right muzzies, I'm talking' 'bout YOU! I got your number.

This guy was born to be Obama’s spokesperson. He’s an idiot too. Many of the protesters that have been interviewed haven’t seen or even know about the movie.

And those aren't American flags they're burning. Those are Romney for President posters!

And the rioters are not motivated by seething anti-Christian and anti-Jewish hatred, because Islam is inclusive and tolerant!

And if the filmmaker's head is found impaled on a stake in his front yard, we will be saddened but not surprised by yet another example of Tea Party violence.

Carney knows those fools in the press room won’t question his idiocy. He just twists himself into a pretzel to defend the indefensible and the idiot press agrees and actually believes every word that comes out of his lying mouth.

More evidence that English is not Carney’s first language. He is a native speaker of Orwellian Newspeak. Remember 2+2=5!

There are so many protests in those countries, it wouldn't surprise me if the Islamic radicals hiding in this country try a terrorist act. I doubt we could stop it if they chose a place other than New York, Washington, D.C., Florida, and California.

Nope.

Don’t remember saying I wasn’t going to post. The last I heard from you, you weren’t going to post to me anymore.

I haven’t been posting quite as much because I’ve been trying to keep the economy running by spending money on my boat. She’s a big beautiful boat, she can be expensive to maintain and she loves to drink gas, lots of it.

I have also been frustrating the PETA loons by killing as many fish as legally I can.

Tonight we are having fresh Coho salmon that my bride caught about 2 hours ago, new potatoes & peas in cream sauce, Crimini mushrooms cooked with olive oil and garlic on the bbq, and a green salad.... for dessert— we will have strawberry shortcake. I don’t drink much anymore and even though I get teased about it, I will wash it all down with sugarless Kool-Aid (red) in a chilled wine glass.

In October we will be into the King salmon. Those guys can get very large around here. King salmon die with honor, because they fight like hell and will fight to the very last second.

Life is good and I am livin’ it my way... screw Obama and the damn democrats.

Cheers.....
