Barack, Whose Side Are You On?

All the media outlets are reporting on the film, Innocence of Muslim, as the root cause of all the rioting in the Middle East.

Here in the United States people have the right to free speech that is protected by The First Amendment.    The First Amendment provides Freedom of speech.  That means we will not like or agree with everything that people say all of the time.    That means the government cannot interfere with speech, no matter how offensive.

As it so happens, I read in that the current administration made a request to YouTube to “suppress the film” as it is the alleged reason for rioting Islamists.  Seriously.

Our current Head of State, who was elected to office to protect the United States Constitution, is betraying all Americans by this request.

Is the film offensive?  Probably.  Yet so are all the other anti-Christian and anti-Semitic expressions that have taken place the last few years.   Piss Christ is a picture of Christ in urine by Andres Serrano, or what about atheist Brian Flemings who tried to say that Jesus Christ is a myth?  Does that mean all Christians are going to blow up Muslim buildings and kill innocent people because they are offended?  In a word, NO!

Despite this movie, book, and picture showing despicable acts they are still covered under the First Amendment.

So, Barack, why are you pandering to the Muslims?

You‘re either showing the Muslims where your loyalties really lie, or you’re missing some backbone (and believe me, I wanted to use a stronger word there…).

Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that the film is offensive.  Is the Muslim behavior warranted in killing innocent Americans and storming American embassies throughout the world?

It is reported that the Muslim Brotherhood requested on September 13th that the video be removed and Barack meekly submitted to their request.

In a statement on the Muslim Brotherhood’s website, “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,”

Wow, so because their FEELINGS WERE HURT, they (the Libyans) dragged the body of the U.S ambassador through the streets, just as the bodies of other Americans have been drug the streets.  (Remember Somalia 2007?)

Barack, are you really that willing to mollify enemies of America and damn the Constitution?

Muslims throughout the world cheer when Americans are hurt.  They burn our flag and many other detestable acts of violence so somehow I don’t think they “needed” this film to incite such violence.

Interesting that the locals (aka “mobs”) just “happened” to have on hand American and Israeli flags to burn and Islamic flags to fly.  Oh, and let’s not forget the rocket propelled grenades they carried…

Are you going to declare Martial Law, Barack, so you can “protect” us?  Please, do us all a favor and get out of the race.

We, The American People, want a leader who follows the constitution knowing exactly where his “backbone” is, and enough tenacity to help protect this great country without bowing down to our enemies.
