Appeals court in California orders YouTube to remove anti-Muslim film that sparked violence
Fox ^ | Published February 26, 2014

Posted on 02/26/2014 2:44:57 PM PST by Perdogg

A U.S. appeals court ordered YouTube on Wednesday to take down an anti-Muslim film that sparked violence in many parts of the Middle East, prompting widespread riots and influential clerics calling for the death of an American actress who sued for the removal of the clip from the site.

The decision by a divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reinstated a lawsuit filed against YouTube by an actress who appeared briefly in the 2012 video that led to rioting and deaths because of its negative portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad.

“Film that sparked violence”

It didn’t.

Hence, there is no freedom of speech when ti pertains to Islam. Our court system has bowed to Mecca and worshiped the meteor.

Note the actresses irreparable harm includes all the death threats she is getting, from the peace loving religion this film impugned.

Tell me why any freedom loving American citizen should give a rat’s rear that muslims don’t want Muhammed depicted? I suggest they don’t depict him then, and get off my lawn. I will “depict” anything I want.

The only thing this will accomplish is to embolden the invaders, a guarantee of more killings and destruction.

Oh, and it also weakens our nation’s constitutional protection of free speech.

Because Catholics don’t butcher people, Serrano’s horribly offensive jar of urine, and Ofili’s defiled Holy Virgin were presented in the face of vociferous protests.

In the case of Serrano’s piece, when then-mayor Rudi Giuliani threatened to cut off NYC funding to the Brooklyn Museum, he was lectured to about free speech by leftwingers.

The correct response should be “And what give the courts the authority to give such an order”? And if they did have such authority then surely any video that offended any group of people would have to be removed as well. Of course The First amendment does not give anyone the right to even pass such a law.

Until the corrupt courts are put on Ignore then the downward spiral of America will continue. It is up to the states to start putting them on Ignore when they twist and pervert the constitution.

Welllllll, Hillary went on a globul campaign mode to advertise the evil of this supposed trailer. And even attempted to make the massacre in Benghazi the results of this evil. Somebody has yet to be exposed for making/using this video as cover up for a far bigger and unrelated event.

Repeating that lie is the entire purpose of the press stories about this “film”. It’s a copyright issue, not a free speech issue. It’s stupid.

Actually there were violent protests over the video as was reported at the time. That's why they stormed the US embassy in Cairo. What's not true is that the video caused the attack on the consulate in Benghazi.

Wow. The video riots in Cairo were a cover story. Hellooooo.

Sure, the story is hard to follow, but it can be done.

Americans should be rioting over this trampling over this garbage from judges. I know that even Hillary said that we have freedom of speech.

The video DID spark violence in the ME — especially in Cairo where they stormed the US embassy over it.

What the video DID NOT cause was the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi and the killing of Chris Stevens.

To report that it did would be a lie as you say, but the Fox article doesn’t do that.
