From Man Who Insulted Muhammad, No Regret. From the article: “Does Mr. Nakoula now regret the footage? After all, it fueled deadly protests across the Islamic world and led the unlikely filmmaker to his own arrest for violating his supervised release on a fraud conviction.” If the New York Times actually believes there is such a thing as a responsibility not to offend and it somehow trumps our right to free speech then it is high time they shut down their operations and get into the greeting card business. Just so long as they don’t make any cards celebrating Jewish holidays or famous women that have made great contributions to civilizations. Because those things are likely to upset a certain segment of the Muslim population as well.

Whose idea from the White House administration was it to blame everything on a 6 month old movie trailer?

Chickenshit NYT doesn’t allow comments! Guess they’re afraid to be called out on their hogwash.

“Innocence of Muslims” creator Nakoula Basseley Nakoula speaks, stands by film’s message.

I’d like to buy him a beer, if he ever gets out of jail.

He shouldn’t be in prison however probably safest place for him to be but still shouldn’t be in prison. The fact that no one seems to have a problem with this is chilling to me. A citizen shouldn’t not go to prison due to free speech issues. Regardless of him being an asshole (identity theft and so on) and violating probation we all know he is in prison because of this. Under normal circumstances he would have had to pay a fine more than likely. This is preposterous.

Turkish $20 million extravaganza film “Valley of the Wolves,Palestine” is a hard core anti-US/ Israel film.

Which message? That Mohammed married a 6 year old girl, and consummated that marriage at 9? On, wait, that fact is true.

Stole his adoptive son’s wife, took over his inheritance. Killed, maimed, raped (he and his band) thousands of people and after he died the killing, maiming and raping continued in his name. Yes… I mean I guess he is such agreat guy he should never be insulted.

So… he alone is responsible for the carnage and problems in the Middle East. Fantastic. He is responsible for people loosing their minds due to a stupid video that no one saw AT THE TIME all of these demonstrations actually took place. Riiight…
