Obama Administration Pattern: Blame Free Speech for Islamic Terror Attacks

by Kit Lange on January 8, 2015

This morning the world woke up to the aftermath of yesterday’s mass shooting, perpetrated by a few more bloodthirsty Muslims.  While the media loops the videos of a wounded policeman on the ground being executed by a monster in a ski mask, a few have turned the gaze of analysis back on domestic soil.  Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller points out an especially salient fact: President Obama and his administration have a very distinct pattern of subtly blaming free speech when these things happen.

2010: Obama criticized Terry Jones, the pastor who planned to burn copies of the Koran—an act protected by the First Amendment.

2012: The US Embassy in Cairo released a statement “condemn[ing] the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims,” blaming the film The Innocence of Muslims for the infiltration of the embassy.  (The administration would, of course, also blame this film for the attack in Benghazi that left four brave Americans dead and several more horribly injured.)

As The Federalist’s David Harsanyi notes, the American Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan paid for an aired an advertisement showing both Obama and then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton condemning the video.

“We absolutely reject its content and message,” Clinton says in the ad.

Then there was the Sept. 25, 2012 speech to the U.N. General Assembly, in which Obama openly criticized free speech:

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” Obama said at the event. “But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

Most people point out that “well, he said all religions are the same and people shouldn’t desecrate pictures of Jesus either.  In fact, there’s a good chance you just said that very thing in your head.  Here’s the problem: Obama should not under any circumstances even make comments like that.  Why not?  Harsanyi explains, in writing about the Obama/Clinton statement regarding The Innocence of Muslims:

“The producer of this pointlessly inflammatory video was well within his rights to mock any religion he chose however he pleased,” Harsanyi wrote. “So the statement irresponsibly perpetuates a false notion about how free speech works around here. Neither The Embassy of the United States in Cairo nor the president of United States has the power to apologize for your views on religion.”

Let’s hone in on that last statement: Neither The Embassy of the United States in Cairo nor the president of United States has the power to apologize for your views on religion.

This means that at no time, and for no reason, should Obama ever make comments regarding the supposed provocation caused by making fun of Mohammed and his child-raping, donkey-fornicating ways.  Instead, he should be focused on condemning the animals who think that gunning down innocent people (or bombing them, or slaughtering them, or kidnapping them, beheading or raping them) is acceptable behavior if you didn’t like their cartoons.

As for the rest of us, we should be posting those cartoons—every last one of them in all their glory—on every page, every website, every comment thread we can get our hands on.  Why?  Because that’s how you deal with tyranny.  That’s how you deal with someone who tells you that you cannot speak or believe the way you wish.  That’s what you do when some disgusting Allah worshiper tries to force you to honor his barbaric belief system or die…

You defy it.  You stand up and refuse.  You make it absolutely clear that you will not submit, you will not comply.  And when they push the issue and decide to kill people over it, you hunt them.  You hunt them, and you arrange a meeting between them and their pedophilia-loving prophet.

Unfortunately, we are too busy being afraid…or in league with them.

Expect a lecture from al-Obama about insulting The Prophet and some increased DHS powers to curtail “hurtful comments” online.

Just curious, was it okay in 2006 when the State Department under Bush criticized caricatures of Muhammad after Muslims demonstrated in Pakistan and other countries?
For once, it would be great if people would stop with the relentless search for a basis on which to criticize everything Obama says or does. It undermines their credibility.

Such dhimmitude form this turd is to be expected. If he isn’t a closet Muslim then he is at least sympathetic to the cause-just like every other Leftist in the their Axis of Evil. If he thinks spouting such nonsense is going to buy the US a free pass from the jihad he is badly mistaken.

Are you for real? How about a substantive response, rather than a bunch of buzzwords like “dhimmitude” and “Axis of Evil”?

On second thought, never mind. I think that you’re just seeing if you can get someone to agree with the nonsense that you wrote.

If push comes to shove, Obooboo will dump Communism for Islam in a New York minute. But then, he IS a Red Diaper Baby who attended a madrasah in Indonesia…madrasahs are schools for studying Islamic theology and religious law. According to the far Liberal wikipedia, some madrasahs have more open curricula, and are open to non-Muslims….yeah, sure…..in Arabic, the word does mean school. I guess it depends on how fundamental the country is.
