CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux asked some reporter today if the maker of the movie against Islam would face charges. Essentially the answer was that it was unclear.
The lunatics at MSNBC said he should face charges. And a professor at the University of Pennsylvania wrote an op-ed defending her tweet that the maker of the film should be in jail.
[W] hy did I tweet that Bacile should be in jail? The “free speech” in Bacile’s film is not about expressing a personal opinion about Islam. It denigrates the religion by depicting the faith’s founder in several ludicrous and historically inaccurate scenes to incite and inflame viewers….
While the First Amendment right to free expression is important, it is also important to remember that other countries and cultures do not have to understand or respect our right.
This is a dangerous dangerous precedent. As dumb as this movie was and even if you believe that the attacks on our embassies were because of this stupid video (they weren’t) it still wouldn’t be enough to arrest him.
The right to free speech is a right. Is there something about “right” that they’re not understanding. If you support the imprisonment of this man for hurting the feelings of radical Muslims then it won’t be long before Christians are imprisoned for hurting the feelings of homosexuals because of their view on gay “marriage.”
If we unleash these dogs be assured that the dogs will turn on us in short notice.
