Anthea Butler is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The title of her most recent book, The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palins Tea Party Angels Are Galvanizing the Religious Right, gives you a pretty good idea of where she stands politically.
This morning, she strongly implied that Sam Bacile is responsible for yesterdays embassy attacks and, as a result, should be tossed into jail.
Bacile is an Israeli filmmaker who lives in California and has gone into hiding. He made the crappy movie that is being used as a pretext to justify the violence that erupted in Egypt and Libya yesterday.
But is making a movie that makes Muslims angry a crime? Butler appears to think so.
Of course, like any academic, Butler purports to support free speech rights:
And yes, I know we have First Amendment rights,but if you don't understand the Religion you hate, STFU about it. Yes, I am ticked off. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

But it is clear that she gets most excited when arguing that those rights are highly circumscribed:
@blmoyer And people do to jail for speech. First Amendment doesn't cover EVERYTHING a PERSON says. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

I am all for free speech, but you better damn well understand that actions have consequences, and what you mock is another persons belief. Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

Sounds like Anthea Butler, Sally Kohn, and Mike Barnicle would get along swimmingly.

Update: Butler has gone into CYA-mode and locked her Twitter account.
Anthea Butler frowns on your shenanigans.
How about this word for her? Nincompoop.
I guess learning about the US Constitution is not required in our education system any longer............
It appears she does.

Sorry for the poor taste in my post above.
I’ve somewhat got to the point with some of the morons that happen to be black as I have with all the moslems. I’m just sick and tired of them. I’m even more sick and tired of the media who promotes these anti-Americans, anti-Christian and racist people.
I never cared about islam before 9/11 and I never cared about skin color before Obama. That was before the moslems started killing my American brother and sisters and before Obama started pitting the races against each other.
We are approaching a time where people are going to start throwing aside the political correctness and calling some of these people what thye are....
What? The enemy? They passed that line some time ago...
Penn's response was more in support of cultural marxism, rather than against it, iirc.
Racist commie *unt.
You’re far too kind.
Let a thousand insults bloom on YouTube. No, make it a million.
Maybe we should start and they’ll finally shut up.
Never forget .... this is insulting but PISS CHRIST IS ART!
I should have known without looking—one of the perpetually pissed affirmative action coven.
LOL. I think you’re getting your monies worth. ;P
Too many letters....you are limited to four and they must rhyme with “OOP”.

Miserable, hateful, bitch ping.
She’s arguing that free speech should be circumscribed? She’s equating people’s criticism of the Moslem religion with the shouting of “Fire” in a crowded theater.
And yes, Christianity is mocked and reviled daily in this country, and no one bats an eyelash.
ought to ask them about a cross in a jar of piss, and what they would think about the koran in similar situation.
Maybe Christians should do some push-back. Yes, I understand “turn the other cheek” but Our Lord also said “he who is without a sword, let him sell his cloak and buy one.”
What would Geert Wilders do?
