Skip to comments.An Act of War, Not a Movie Protest ... Mark Steyn

So, on a highly symbolic date, mobs storm American diplomatic facilities and drag the corpse of a U.S. ambassador through the streets. Then the president flies to Vegas for a fundraiser. No, no, a novelist would say; that's too pat, too neat in its symbolic contrast. Make it Cleveland, or Des Moines. The president is surrounded by delirious fanbois and fangurls screaming "We love you," too drunk on his celebrity to understand that this is the first photo-op in the aftermath of a national humiliation. No, no, a filmmaker would say; too crass, too blunt. Make them sober, middle-aged Midwesterners, shocked at first, but then quiet and respectful. The president is too lazy and cocksure to have learned any prepared remarks or mastered the appropriate tone, notwithstanding that a government that spends more money than any government in the history of the planet has ever spent can surely provide him with both a speechwriting team and a quiet corner on his private wide-bodied jet to consider what might be fitting for the occasion. So instead he sloughs off the words, bloodless and unfelt: "And obviously our hearts are broken..." Yeah, it's totally obvious.

FUBO! Fifty-two days to go.
Even if it is a movie, which it isn’t, it should not alter the response.
Any people who would react to a movie in such a savage way are not compatible with civilization.
Since obama is anti Israel could this be the time she strikes Iran to take advantage of the turmoil?? I am keeping my gas tanks topped off for the duration.
12 The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
16 Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the LORD upholds the righteous.
Remember your children, O Lord, and sweep this evil from our land ...
Any people who would react to a movie in such a savage way are not compatible with civilization."
God have mercy on those in their path.
Bump & a Ping
On a different note, I've been thinking about how, since NASA has been given the role of Muslim outreach, our private sector has picked up the slack (to an extent); now since the US government refuses to protect the country, ought the private sector pick up the slack there too? It seems that we citizens will have to protect ourselves since our government refuses to do so.
In short...you can’t make this crap up. Or in any event, you’d never get it made in Hollywood if you did.
I think Barry should thank whatever he uses for God (even if he’s just bowing to himself in the mirror) that Mark Steyn is Canadian-born. If he thinks Mitt’s being mean to him, imagine what a Steyn campaign would be like.
