The short answer is No! When our Constitutional Rights are affronted by cowards that would capitulate to murderous savages, then they neither deserve security nor liberty. That is the case regarding the attacks against the American Freedom Defense Initiative in Garland Texas by Islamic terrorists. The event was about cartoons.
Luckily, there was an police officer there with superior marksmanship skills and thwarted what could have been a bloodbath. What happened afterwards was shocking.
The media blamed the attack on the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group is organized by Pamela Geller. She runs the blog Atlas Shrugs and she is an activist fighting for free speech rights in America. The group has been responsible for fighting back against Islamic jihad terrorism around the world. By bringing awareness to the public what the media refuses to discuss, the slaughter of innocent people around the world by radical Islamic terrorists. It was about satirical cartoons and some believe that was being too provocative.
Never have I’ve seen such sympathy for intolerant Muslim trash. The Muslims were there to kill people, and the media is calling a Free Speech event a provocation. There has been numerous Islamic crimes around America: Ft. Hood shooter, Boston bombers, New Jersey beheading’s, Oklahoma grandmother beheaded, honor killing of teenage girls, and the list goes on and on. There is the media, blaming the victims and not the Islamic terrorists.
Megyn Kelly to Richard Fowler, “Do you hear what you are saying?” You’re asking people to give up their First Amendment right to free speech. At least there were some journalists that understand the meaning of Free Speech. Irregardless if anyone finds speech offensive, it is still protected speech. I was really surprised that some Fox News journalists took the side of the terrorists. Terrorism is not free speech.
Muslim clerics would find women in dresses and high heels as provocative, because they are not dress in hefty garbage bags. In Islamic countries, women dressed like Martha MacCallum would be stoned to death.
Via The Volokh Conspiracy: The University of Minnesota decided to host a panel on the Charlie Hebdo murders. After receiving complaints from Muslim students, the university’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action [EOAA] ordered staff to take down copies of the flyers, both from bulletin boards and from any university Web sites.
Luckily, the dean of the College of Liberal Arts, John Coleman, promptly reversed that order, and has also refused to go along with the EOAA’s request that he publicly condemn the use of the Muhammad image. Fortunately, it looks like the academics at the University of Minnesota, including the dean, understand the principle of Free Speech.
There doesn’t seem to be any issues with satire against other world religions. Christianity with crucifixes in jars of urine. Jews depicted in Muslim cartoons as monsters. Buddhist and Hindus illustrated in disparaging cartoons. However, you don’t see any of these religions committing murders in the name of their religion. Then again, Islam is not a religion, it is a cult of intolerance and slavery.
Leftist in America and Europe have coddled these Islamic extremists. Cowards will always capitulate to terror. Barry the Bullshitter (Obama), said that the prophet of Islam must not be slandered. Why not?
While Obama says nothing about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East, Obama has plenty to say about racial tensions in this country, and he continues to fan the flames of racism. Obama seems more concerned about Islamic terrorists, than the safety of Americans. We have two Muslims in Congress that want Sharia law enforced over Constitutional Law. Leftist democrats are promoting a welfare state for votes.
The terrorists also say they have 71 fighters in 15 different states and they 23 have signed up already for missions like the failed Sunday attack in Garland, Texas.
What is this country doing about this threat? One of the dead terrorists was known by authorities, and yet he attempted to murder people. The terrorist only need to win once, and then people will ask, “how did this happen”. It’s because they let it happen.
