Free Speech Battle in Small-Town Tennessee
Frontpage Mag ^ | JUNE 10, 2013 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 06/10/2013 6:41:28 AM PDT by rickmichaels

Last Tuesday, Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of Tennessee, FBI Special Agent Kenneth Moore, and Zak Mohyuddin of the American Muslim Advisory Council hosted an event called “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” in the town of Manchester, Tennessee. My American Freedom Defense Initiative colleague Pamela Geller and I called for a protest of what was clearly an event designed to intimidate Americans into being afraid to criticize the elements of Islam that give rise to violence and supremacism – and patriots turned out in numbers far beyond what we expected.

Killian and Moore expatiated at length about how “inflammatory” speech could violate civil rights laws.

Right there.

Who defines "inflammatory"? How does "inflammatory" speech differ from "free" speech? What "civil rights laws" trump free speech and why?

Liberals and their ilk love to say they are offended when a conservative says something the liberal does not like, implying the conservative should not be allowed to say what he said.

Shut down free speech and you shut down your opposition. Voila! Totalitarianism, the liberals (and muzzies) ultimate goal. All of them thinking they will be in the ruling totalitarian class and not one of the proletariats.

It’s on youtube, an hour and a half. People are definitely disgruntled but IMO the meeting lacked some tossed salad.

If people aren’t rioting yet, they never will.

This fellow Killian is a United States attorney with the power to indite and prosecute. Such sentiments trying to impose Federal speech codes is chilling. Unless he resigns or is removed from office promptly, his scary sentiments will fester and spread.

When anything about Islam is beyond criticism, then we shall have all lost. NOBODY and NOTHING is beyond the scrutiny of men, imperfect though we may be.

There is something called “freedom of speech”, and also something called “freedom of religion”. At this point, “freedom of speech” seems to be trumping “freedom of religion”, that is, if what is being criticized is actually a religion and not merely a cult or ideology.

But Islam is about as much of a religion as International Socialism, and rightly as subject to critical review as the doctrines of Karl Marx.

And what section of this generally accepted code of conduct in relation to religion provides an exception for Islam? There is no end of criticism for the Church of Christ of the Latter-day Saints, or for the Roman Catholic Church, or even Satanic worshipers.

Nothing about Islam puts them above critical review, except some very bloody threats and implications about what the practitioners are allowed to do to the critics. Is this a challenge of some kind?

Do the Muslims NOT understand why the Crusades were undertaken several times? That is called “pushback”. Their hands are not exactly clean in this confrontation, and they have bloodied those hands more than a little in recent years.

First speaker talks of “collective freedom”. There is no such thing. But, it’s a clue of the mindset.

Tennessee isn’t isolated from muzzie infiltration. The greater Nashville area is infested with Somali gangs, the Murfreesboro mega mosque is just down the road, and the Tennesseean liberal newsrag is a shameless enabler of the muzzie presence.

Killian attempted to read the riot act to the assembled crowd of “infidels”, lectured them about their “intolerance”, called them racists, and demanded that they submit to Islamic benevolence or be surveilled & maybe droned.

All that he really made them do was to go home & check their ammo supply.

I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

This guy just went to Obama’s “like” list.

Of all the places in this country Tenn would be one of the last I would ever think was being invaded by the muzzies.

But then we are getting them here in the Atlanta area also. Fighting it but they are still making inroads.

From the video - a Presbyterian minister states it is not his job to convert the Muslims. Obviously he has rejected the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is a huge part of the problem we face. Judas lives.

My late husband fought the Muzzies during the cold war when he was stationed on North Africa. Their objective was to take over the base and destroy our counter intell planes. He instilled an epic hatred in us for Islam.

When Killian mentions the right to vote - someone in the audience calls out - “What about the Black Panthers?”

These people get it! RESIGN!!

I think getting rid of them as in sending them all back to the Hell holes they came from is prolly a better idea than conversion.

Shucks -- Jesus had all he could handle in trying to convert the Jews! (Luke 22:32, 52-53)

“...a Presbyterian minister states it is not his job to convert the Muslims.”

What an idiot! The muzzies d@mn sure think it’s their job to convert us!!! Right there in the Koran it says that all humans are born Muslim until “led astray” by their parents into Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, etc.

Hint: muzzies say that “infidels” who embrace Islam don’t `convert’, they `revert’.

“If you’re a hammer, then everything looks like a nail.”

If you’re a Muslim, then every “infidel” wears a bullseye on their back. Bottom line.
