Via Mediaite. Im not sure how to square this with the fact that in Tunisia today they were chanting, Obama, Obama, we are all Osamas, since Im pretty sure the Egyptian Copt who produced the Mohammed movie isnt named Obama.
Go look at the map of todays 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 theyre barred by the First Amendment; Islamist totalitarians have trouble with that concept, though, so theyre holding the White House responsible for the films publication despite Carneys obsequious stammering over how mean and disgusting and reprehensible and awful it is. Theyre 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...
He really is stupid.
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
Whatever you think Mr Carney. Dipshit.
These protests are directed ,at an offensive Administration, not a movie.
i heard that “Beavis” is filling in for Sparky next week. Sparky needs a vacation.
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?
Carney will always remind me of the kid in gym class who always got “pants.”
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.
yup Jay!...right on!...so the obvious conclusion is:
“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
This wasn't an attack on the United States it was an attack on an ad agency on the 83rd floor.
So? There aim wasn't too good.
