And apparently, most of them are Muslim…
The head of a leading Islamic organization Saturday called for a global ban on offending the character of the Prophet Muhammad, saying that it should be equated with hate speech….
“If the Western world fails to understand the sensitivity of the Muslim world, then we are in trouble,” (Ekmeleddin) Ihsanoglu said. Such provocations pose “a threat to international peace and security and the sanctity of life.”
Translation: “You people need to sit down and shut up because you’re offending our delicate sensibilities. And we won’t be held responsible for our own actions.” And of course Ihsonaglu said they respected the right of free speech, but does anyone really believe that? It’s more like, “We respect free speech, but we think speech that pisses us off should be banned.”
Does anyone doubt what would happen if these people started trying to kill people and break stuff here on the scale they do it over there? They’d be met by people with guns — who may or may not have badges. Second Amendment FTW!
Oh, and speaking of the Bill of Rights, I would be remiss in not pointing this out:
Rev. Ed Rowe of Central United Methodist, a historic church in Detroit, soke out against the people who created the anti-Islam film.
“They are responsible and blood is on their hands,” said Rev. Rowe. He said people like the filmmakers should be locked up for instigating violence.
Special. Apparently the fucking Methodists hate the First Amendment as much as they do the Second. I wonder what the good reverend would say if some of us suggested he should be locked up for disrespecting the Bill of Rights because it pisses us off. He probably wouldn’t like that, would he?
Well, that would make him a hypocritical son of a bitch.
