UPenn prof calls for imprisonment of filmmaker Sam Bacile; Update: Butler locks her Twitter account

Butler@AntheaButler

Good Morning. How soon is Sam Bacile going to be in jail folks? I need him to go now.When Americans die because you are stupid...

12 Sep 12

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 Palin’s 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 yesterday’s 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:

@AntheaButler

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:

@AntheaButler

@blmoyer And people do to jail for speech. First Amendment doesn't cover EVERYTHING a PERSON says.— Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

@AntheaButler

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

@AntheaButler

@jason_a_hines the murder of the Ambassador and the employees is wrong, wrong. But Bacile will have to face his actions which he had freedom— Anthea Butler (@AntheaButler) September 12, 2012

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

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....

Yeah? Wasn't Penn where the "water buffalo" incident took place?

Penn's response was more in support of cultural marxism, rather than against it, iirc.

Anthea Butler has her head up her ass, and should be fired and blackballed. 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.”
