Well We Know What Obama Really Thinks Of Free Speech

If I understand what I have read it seems that the gentleman who made the Youtube that has those oh so sensitive muslims all riled up is a Egyptian Coptic Christian. If this is indeed true then all I have to say is pay backs are a real bitch.  Does that statement puzzle some of you ? If so it is understandable as one of the stories that has been going on in Egypt over the last several months has been the murder of Christians by the score .....the burning of Church's, even the Crucifixion of some Christians as called for by islamic law. If you missed it well that's because its just Christians being murdered and that's just ducky it seems. One of the main targets of these purges, ( yes I mean purge in the literal sense as that is what it is ) has been Coptic Christians. So if this gentleman is indeed a Egyptian Coptic Christian he just burnt down the house and not just in Egypt but in muslim nations accross the world they are burning their neighborhoods and driving people and money away.  In any case the head of the Egyptian government is or was, rumor has it, the head of the muslim brotherhood. A group that has found themselves on terrorist watch list .... until recently anyway. Obama supports these people and while he can't find time for the head of the Israeli government he will make time for this man.

Now to the free speech issue there is this

In addition to the Joint Chiefs dialing up Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones earlier this week, we now know that Mr. Obama’s defense of the First Amendment is very reluctant indeed. Or as Munro is reporting today,  “Obama submits to Brotherhood, asks for suppression of anti-Islam video:”

President Barack Obama has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhood’s demand that the federal government suppress a satirical video of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.
Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told the Washington Post that the White House has “reached out to YouTube to call the video to their attention and ask them to review whether it violates their terms of use.”
The request complies with the Sept. 13 demand and threat by the brotherhood, which now governs the Arab’s world’s largest country, Egypt.
“Hurting the feelings of one and a half billion Muslims cannot be tolerated, and… we demand that all those involved in such crimes be urgently brought to trial,” according to an English-language statement on the brotherhood’s website.
The brotherhood’s demand included a threat of additional violence during Obama’s re-election campaign.
“The people’s anger and fury for their Faith is invariably predictable, often unstoppable,” said the website.
The submission came shortly after White House spokesman Jay Carney publicly disavowed any plans to curb free speech.
“We cannot and will not squelch freedom of expression in this country — it is a foundational principle,” he told reporters at a 11.15 a.m. press conference in the White House.

The First Amendment? For the Obama Administration, it’s merely a legal term of art, as Carney would say.

As Jonah Goldberg asks in his column today, written before news broke that the Obama administration is phoning up Google to get a video yanked, “Are we really ready to throw out the First Amendment to appease lynch mobs?”

And I guess after You tube told them to kiss their collective asses obama sent some Flying Monkeys out to pay a personal visit to the film maker
