Free speech `red lines' feed Muslim film rage
Associated Press ^ | Sep 24, 2012 1:53 PM (ET) | BRIAN MURPHY

Posted on 09/24/2012 12:27:49 PM PDT by DJ MacWoW

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - In U.S.-funded ads running on Pakistani TV, subtitled clips show President Barack Obama extolling America's traditions of religious freedom. For many watching, though, the message misses the mark in efforts to calm the Islamic outrage over a film denigrating the Prophet Muhammad.

America's free speech laws and values of openness are not in question, but rather there is confusion and anger over how they are applied.

I searched but didn't see this posted.

My FREEDOM is not contingent on other countries acceptance of it. They are confused about how my rights are "applied"?! It's either freedom or it's conditional which is NOT freedom. The AP is SO good at double speak. They can kiss my FREE American.......values. lol

I'm also sick to death of the excuses that the press comes up with to LIMIT my freedom. They can all go suck eggs!

If the Muzzies don’t like what is going on in America, I suggest they pay a little more attention to the country THEY live in and stop worrying about ours. We’re Americans, they’re Muzzies. There is a big difference. A huge difference. We believe in freedom.

That article really made me angry. It boils down to BRIAN MURPHY saying that Muslims have no self-control and OUR freedom is at fault. They really DO hate us for our freedom and so does the press.

Perhaps if the US invaded and obliterarated THEIR SOVERIGN SOIL, as they did to ours - they would come to understand what “tolerance” means.

When you blow stuff up, you may get me to look - but when you blow MY stuff up; you get my attention.

Many things they do offend Christians. Muslims should apologize.

Then they should eat a slab of bacon.

America is always the “bad guy”. Just ask Obama. He was raised and is supported by those who hate American exceptionalism.

The apologies are just validating their anger.

Pakistanis didn't know about any "insults" anyway until 0blablah and Hillbilly broadcast this...

Obama and Hillary Apologize for Free Speech on Pakistani TV (taxpayer-funded ads)

Which immediately resulted in this...

The Marxist and his rabble are trying to “cut America down to size”. They believe all the ills in the world are our fault.

The "Cube" (Kabaa) is much older than Islam, they stole it from the inhabitants of Mecca.

Yes, I believe that Dinesh D'Souza is absolutely right about what 0bowdown is all about.

part 2 Glenn Beck gbtv real news 2012 07 13 Dinesh D'Souza 2016 Obama

0blahblah is a neo-anti-Colonialist who thinks the whole western world is the cause of all the world's troubles and the U.S.A. is the worst of all. He is trying to fundamentally change the world not just the U.S..

I believe that. It explains a lot including Obama campaigning in foreign countries. He sees himself as recreating the whole world the way HE thinks it should be.

Here. Maybe Patrick Henry and help.

"The questing before [you] is one of awful moment to this country . . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which [is] above all earthly kings . . . Are [you] disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? . . . whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, [you must be] willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it."

You heard from one of the Founders.. if anyone denies free speech -- even "through fear of giving offense" -- they are committing treason.

Or in the case of the Islamists here in the U.S.of A. who demand that we must not criticize Islam -- they are committing treason and they should be arrested, tried, convicted, and interned for the duration. Period.

Shame be upon the Islamists..

From Internet sources:". . . close to ninety percent [of suicide bombers] were suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy . . . being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion . . . and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam). . .People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam."

Shame be upon the Islamists and the Obama Administration for sanctioning the Islamists abuse of these poor souls.. where is the "sensitivity" for these victims of hundreds of years of Islamism's practice of inbreeding and Islamism's horrible abuse of these poor souls including killing them?

It is the maniacal delusion of a pathological narcissist. He thinks he can roll back the clock on centuries of history like some magic "reset" button. 0bama is utterly ignorant of free will and cause and effect. The third world countries he wants to uplift are no more going to happily go along with his plan than the western nations he wants to push back down.

His manipulations can only result in increased tension, strife and war. We can see those fruits already starting to ripen. People will not be pushed into playing out one man's fantasies even for promises of wealth and happiness. People cannot be pushed like that. They couldn't fit into his fairytale dream world if they wanted to and live like dolls in a child's playhouse. That defies reality.

They are cave-dwellers living in a modern world. They have no understanding. All they have is Islam and it’s cruelty.

...and by the same logic, limit their own freedom. LOL

A lot of Progressives believe in utopianism. Very few believe it can be brought about virtually overnight or that they personally have some mystical power to make it happen.

0bama is mentally ill. Extremely so! I am not saying that in the pejorative even slightly.

IMHO Americans need to shun Islam and all those who practice it until they join the civilized world. Their blood-thirsty history goes back a thousand years with no let-up.

I really think it's more than that. He gets his ideology from that early communist education but his anti-Colonialist savior-of-the-world fantasies are rooted in a deep seated mental disorder. His delusions are light years beyond those of any ordinary Progressive. For 0bama it's not about the world being saved by socialism it's about him saving the world with his vision of it.

I'm surer than I have ever been that his respect for Marxist philosophy is way below his reverence for his own brilliant mind and shining personality.

The homos in America better stop being queer or it might make moslums commit murder. Women should also shut up and cover up so they don't upset moslums. That's what I'm hearing from the cowards on the left. If we give just one inch we are done as free people.

It's more than marxism so it looks like mental illness. His anti-colonial behavior is based on "America is rich because it ripped off the rest of the world". It looks nuts until you talk to 3rd worlders who buy into it. They believe they have nothing because we took it.

What's even crazier is Obama has been given every advantage. He has NEVER lived "poor" Not even in Indonesia. Yet he empathizes with 3rd worlders.

It’s not his belief in anti-Colonialism that makes me think he’s insane. Although it is kind of nuts in a world where Colonialism is an historical artifact.

Okay. But I don't see him as crazy. Most liberals are lacking logic and reason and that makes them look insane. History alone should clue them in but it doesn't. You can talk a blue streak with proof and they'll disbelieve. For them, it's about what they "feel".

I think Obamas narcissism has been fed to him by his mother and grandparents. He has lived a charmed and privileged life. And he believes that he's "The One". He has been groomed by powerful people to be the destroyer.
