Remain calm, all is well in Egypt, ALL IS WELL!!!

Remain calm, all is well in Egypt, ALL IS WELL!!!

Via Al Ahram English:

Egyptian protesters on Tuesday took down the American flag from the walls of the US embassy in Cairo during a thousands-strong demonstration held to protest a short film produced by US based Coptic-Christians that critics say demeans Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

A number of protesters managed to climb atop the walls surrounding the embassy, while others were able to breach the embassy’s garden, where they removed an American flag and replaced it with another one bearing the Islamic declaration of faith: “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is the Prophet of Allah.”

The Ultras White Knights – hardcore football fans – claimed that members of their group had brought down the US flag. While group members have since retreated from the scene, they say they are planning additional rallies to protest the film.

How did the U.S. Embassy react?

You know where I’m going with this.  The Embassy condemned the creators of the film, not the people who stormed the Embassy:

(added) It’s unclear if the press release was before or after the storming, but there is no press release condemning the storming of the Embassy.

We have seen this film before.

    As a fellow vet, I am very sad at the leadership of this country. With that said I am still proud of America and most American citizens.

    Western Civilizations war with Islam has endured for 1400 years and will continue to endure until someone stands up and completely defeats Islam. Compromise = weakness, and the Muslim Brotherhood knows this right well. To show mercy and seek peace is the equivalence of surrender.

    I should have narrowed that down to ashamed of our leadership and not have tossed everyone under the bus.
    I am pissed though.

What? No demands upon the Egyptian government to stop it? With this kind of feckless response from the US government it looks like we will have a replay of Carter. What’s next, taking American hostages in the Embassy?

Dumb and dumber:

Thank you, Barry. Thank you, Hillary.

I know I can relax knowing that Barack Hussein Obama’s “Cario speech” was the vehicle of a lasting peace between the US and Egypt.

    Agreed. Just when will he hold the surrender ceremony and is there a sword he can borrow so that he may hand it over to the Iman receiving our surrender?

    Catherine in reply to nomadic100. | September 11, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    Unfortunately, Islam is at war with us.

    Egypt must be punished for this insult to our country. I can’t wait to see how President Obowma responds.

    Perhaps the president could send some Egyptian diplomats home. Perhaps our country could reduce the amount of financial aid we give Egypt. Lastly, how about reducing the number of muslim Egyptians who come here for any reason especially students and tourists. After all, which was Mohammed Atta a student or a tourist? And look at all the destruction that follower of the Prophet Mohammed did here.

    I despise the following statement from our embassy in Egypt “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others”. Gee, what a wussy defense of free speech. I wish that Prophet Mohammed and Islam would be mocked far and wide considering all the agony, death, and destruction Prophet Mohammed has inspired worldwide for centuries.

    And now I just read that Egypt’s actions have spread to Libya: “An armed mob has attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi and set fire to the building, witnesses reported, in what they said was a protest at a film they said offended Islam.”

We can only hope that the ratbags will release the embassy hostages on January 20 when Romney becomes president.

In condemning the Copts behind the film, the Obama administration has signaled the Muslims of Egypt that it is open season on Coptic Christians.

Brothers in Christ, arm yourselves, shoot first, ask questions later, and send them to hell to meet Allah.

    Cassandra Lite in reply to Juba Doobai!. | September 11, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Sorry to say, the Copts have joined with Muslims in this.

      Really? How so, brain trust?

      Because they had the nerve to defy their masters and make a film about the slaughter and eventual extermination of their people?

      How dare they piss off the koranimal masters like that. They must DIE! Funny thing, the koranimals were killing them before the film was ever made. So really, how dumb are you?

        Juba Doobai! in reply to sablegsd. | September 11, 2012 at 8:20 pm

        Why you wanna carry on like that? The story did say that a Coptic man said he was against any thing attacking Islam like that. Poor widdle Wislam! Can’t stand without blood and howling hordes!

      Juba Doobai! in reply to Cassandra Lite. | September 11, 2012 at 8:18 pm

      I saw one guy quoted. The Muslims are liars, and the words the “Copt” used made me think he wasn’t a Copt. If the Copt sided with the Muslims by decrying the film, not by tearing down the flag, I would argue for an element of self-preservation. After the barbaric hordes get done with the flag, they will turn go for the Copts; how many will die? There’s an old adage about a soft answer turning away wrath, so maybe the Copt was a Copt and not a Muslim.

      If Obama had feeling for any besides Muslims, he would demand an apology from the savages.

Some of the tweets really make you wonder

“Remain calm! All is well!”

Kevin Bacon’s other line from Animal House:

The Embassy condemned the creators of the film, not the people who stormed the Embassy.

I’m sure there are others who will join me in saying:

I got a flag. “Maybe, you feel lucky. Well, do you punk(s), feel lucky.”

I’m arbitrarily cutting off my initial reactions:

1. We should let it be known that if the Suez Canal is not operated in accordance with our national interest, we will occupy it.

Alternatively, we can just occupy it right now, “in stewardship” until the Egyptians get their affairs sorted out like a civilized country.

2. The canal that Carter gave away is not failing to cross my mind.

3. It’s unclear if the press release was before or after the storming, but there is no press release condemning the storming of the Embassy.

It is very important to nail down the timing of the US Embassy’s condemnation of the film. I expect people are working on that right now and it will happen.

4. Will Obama double down and condemn “provocative right-wing extremism”? Maybe or maybe not right now, but after the election he expects to have more flexibility.

5. After the election, the Islamists also expect to have more flexibility.

6. This obviously has potential to affect the election. It’s an opportunity to see our nominee react to a crisis (which is how McCain lost), but Romney should not bee too squishy or too bellicose.

7. I want to see that film.

8. Since mocking the GOP is off-limits until after the election, I’ve been looking for an outlet for my sense of black humor. I am confident that MSM/multiculti/transnationalist spin on the embassy storming will provide that outlet.

Strange fruit.

“We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

Those who use speech which causes no harm – hurt feelings don’t count – are condemned, but not Muslim rioters who are doing real, physical harm.

I refuse to live in this alternative universe. There is nothing, nothing, in this world that’s beyond criticism. I refuse to submit (Islam means submission, not peace).

The quoted language came from the US Embassy in Cairo, penned by public officials who took an oath to support the US Constitution. We are being ruled by Profiles in Putty. Where have the men gone?

    Obama and his administration are contemptible cowards.

What a bunch of feel good gobbledygook. It is so contrived and manipulated with PC words and feelings that it comes out to be a tortured bucket of words with no real meaning.

Don’t look, but all is well in Benghazi where the US consulate has been torched./ I wonder how we will apologize for inciting this torching and how will we live with ourselves for declaring open season on the Copts with our “apology”?

Apparently there has been a similar action in Libya?
“… the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya’s second biggest city, has been set on fire…”

At least the US communique did not mention “peanut butter”, “golf”, “Chicago” or other racist, culturally insensitive phrases.
Thank goodness.

After seeing the Obama administration’s strong decisive reaction to the storming of one of its embassies, I’ll bet those Iranians can’t dismantle their nuke program quick enough.


What kind of country condemns its own people for telling the truth?

What kind of government apologizes to its enemies?

    Squires in reply to CalMark. | September 11, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect, and is intended to.

    – Theodore Dalrymple

    To paraphrase a certain escapee from Soviet Communism:

    There’s no way to rule innocent men and women. When there aren’t enough evils one invents them. One declares so many things to be sinful that it becomes impossible for human beings to live without violating your proposed moral order. Just fabricate the kind of sins that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – or teach people to feel guilty for things they never even took part of, things that happened before they were even born. Create conditions of material, spiritual, intellectual, or amorous and emotional poverty where the only way they can survive, or find happiness or fulfillment, is to sin. Teach them that the only way they can find acceptance is to accept that they are tainted by sin – their sins, the sins of their fathers, the sin of existing as who they are, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that that they must strive for the salvation of your acceptance, your flattery, and that they must keep in line to keep it. There is no way to make the innocent accept being ruled over. First you make everyone feel guilty, then you cash in on the guilt. But remember these rules are for them, only for them, not for you.

    Insidious? Yes? Effective? Most certainly. Just look around you. See how it taps into some of the most powerful of human emotions: guilt, fear, shame, desire for acceptance – the desire to be good? The desire to think well of ourselves, placed entirely in their hands. And by who? By ourselves. But to strip their game of all its power over us, we need do but one simple thing, one difficult, one challenging, but simple, thing: Refuse. Refuse the bastards. Refuse.

    You cannot stop others from giving themselves in, from playing sacrifice along, if they are so determined – but you can do this for yourself. If you can do nothing else in the world, no matter how broken your body or impoverished your conditions, so long as your mind is your own, you can do this for yourself.

    So wrote Plutarch, in the De Garrulitate:

    For as the Celtiberians make steel of iron by burying it in the ground, thereby to refine it from the gross and earthy part, so the Laconic way of speech has nothing of bark upon it, but by cutting off all superfluity of words, it becomes steeled and sharpened to pierce the understanding of the hearers.[…] For example: The Lacedaemonians to Philip; Dionysius in Corinth. And when Philip wrote thus to the Spartans: “If once I enter into your territories, I will destroy ye all, never to rise again.”; they answered him with the single word, “If.“

    Those Spartans were bastards, but these thousands of years later they are are still remembered for good reason.

    During World War Two, at the Battle of Bastogne, part of the Battle of the Bulge, the 101st Airborne in and around Bastogne was surrounded by German forces. The German forces sent an envoy bringing a request for surrender, saying the Americans faced “certain annihilation”. The commanding officer of the American forces, General Anthony McAuliffe, had one word for them: “Nuts!“

    Without courage we have nothing, but with courage we possess all that we need.

      An Added bit of /sarcasm/

      Here’s where I think Obama is committing a grave injustice for all concerned. It’s my understanding that he is known to throw hissy-fits, or is it sissy-fits? Anyway, he could write an how-to for his Muslims brothers on how to protest without rioting, or burning, or killing.

      He could point what’s the point of tearing cloth or crumbling bricks and mortar? Consider how much more effective it is to dismantle things through the destruction of laws and regulations while replacing them with your own. Or, he could point out that there’s nothing to burning property. Why once you control the laws and regulations, you can “burn” through other peoples’ money and it’s so much more fun, plus there’s no danger of getting burnt. And, he could show that it’s not necessary to kill people, when you just take away from them whatever you want. Soon, they’ll come to question whether it’s worth all the trouble to put up a fight. In addition, by them not being killed, they’ll still be able to work and so able to pay taxes. Thus, they’ll be able to continue to destroy and re-build through laws, that will enable them to exert more control, and collect more and mores taxes.

      Moreover, Michelle could co-author, pointing out the necessity of a good diet. Also, that Obama’s way is so less stressful. Thereby, they would be living healthier lives. Oh, how grateful they would be to Obama and Michelle.

    Oh good – a ship. I heard it was a skiff.



In these dark days we hear a call,
For freedom’s trumpet sounds again!
Our enemies swear we’ll fail and fall,
Afraid of their Godless will to win—
But their will is born of sin,
And we NEVER will give in.

For we rely on greater powers,
Than those made by men’s hands.
Our swords are HONOR and LIBERTY,
With faith we take our stand,
With our FATHER’S GOD,
Who yet protects this Heaven-Blessed Land.

If we pursue a virtuous life,
If we seek and foster truth,
Our powers exceed the guile of vice,
And regardless of our youth,
A divine commission we’ll fulfill,
To advance the cause of truth!

Heed not the lies, ignore the cries,
Of the gutless, foreign whores,
Who sell their puny souls for the base and the false,
Which the strong and the just ignore.
Together we shall save this Republic,
And keep safe our hallowed shores!



When I first read that statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, I thought it was A JOKE. I still can’t quite believe that was the official statement…aren’t these people State Department officials? Whatever happened to upholding and defending the Constitution?

Whatever happened to having a spine???

    Agree. I didnt think the point of diplomats was to twist concepts like Free Speech to spare the “feelings” of others.
    Evidently the head diplomat there is the same gal that was in Pakistan and supposedly a really top person in the diplomacy world.
    Perhaps its time for her to return home and reacquaint herself with what free speech means…and how we promote the concept to others.
    Ive never associated that right with a box of Pampers or Kleenex for the more sensitive.

Yes, respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy…unless some edgy transgressive artist wants to dip a crucifix in urine or throw cow dung on the Virgin Mary. That’s perfectly okay.

And where do they come off insisting that there’s a “universal right of free speech”? Nobody else has that but us. In many countries, you can be jailed or fined for hurting someone’s feelings. Not even Canada has a free-speech clause in its constitution. Just ask Mark Steyn.

Still so far they are just pussies. Anyone can climb onto a wall & hoist a piece of fabric.

Now climb those pyramids , hoist the al quaeda flag & then blow them up.

Give us the Real Stuff.

The Embassy defends it’s stance, as captured in this Twitchy post:
Include me amongst those of you who are livid.

I’d condemn the film based solely on terrible production values. It was actually painful to watch.

2016 OTOH was professional in every way and I would recommend it highly.

I guess that the moral is what every you endeavor, do your best to make it shine…

So, now Drudge is reporting that Egyptian intelligence is cooperating with Iran! That begs the question of when Suez will be closed to the USA and what do we do then?

Recall during Nasser’s time that Suez was shutdown and the oil crisis that followed; crisis as in gas shortages, long lines at the pumps, many pumps had severely interrupted supplies. That now sounds just like another step in Obama’s plan to thoroughly transform this country, along with his plans to stop fracking and to bankrupt coal companies.

Also, our military activities in the Middle East would necessarily be curtailed due to the lengthened supply lines; logistics remain the key to success in any military operation.

I’ll give Obama one point in that hard times call for hard measures and he’s fully prepared to take those hard measures to bring us into line with his dream from his fathers.

I’d smile 🙂 but that’s not possible now. 😉

Coptic Christians in U.S. make a movie and Islamists go crazy.
To date there have 19,582 deadly terror attacks ( wide since 9/11/01 targeting non muslims. I think we missed an opportunity to practice a cruise missle launch.

It’s never productive to dwell on “What if”, but I have wondered what if Obama had been in charge on 9-1-1? My imagination can’t handle it. We all know the only reason Bin Laden is dead is because of the policies put in place immediately after 9-1-1. The reason he is dead is clear – it was Bush’s fault. It’s hard to believe those policies would have been in place if Obama and his inept crew were in charge on that day.

    Observer in reply to gasper. | September 11, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    Obama gave a speech shortly after 9/11/2001, in which he attributed the 9/11 terrorists’ actions to their poverty and lack of education. At the time Obama made the speech, there was no evidence whatsoever that either poverty or ignorance had any role in the attacks. Later, when we learned the specific identities of the 9/11 terrorists, we also learned that the majority of them were from either middle-class or wealthy Saudi families, and the majority were also educated, having completed college (some in the U.S.), and a few of them even had graduate degrees.

    Had Obama been president on 9/11, he probably would have responded with more apologies and increased foreign aid to hostile Muslim countries. Remember when Janet Napolitano took over as Secretary of DHS, and tried to ban the use of words like “Islamofascism” in government communications?

    Obama, and the fools like Napolitano that he has appointed, have their heads planted firmly up their backsides when it comes to the enemy we face. They refuse to even acknowledge the reality of what we’re up against. We must boot these ignorant fools from power in November. Our future depends on it.

I just watched the “film” that the US State Department relentlessly and endlessly condemned.

(I’m so livid I can’t enven type)

It’s nothing more than a cheesy youtube videeo.

And who the hell is running the embassy twitter feed?

I’m speechless and can’t type, so I’m done-

(Reuters) – An American staff member of the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said on Wednesday.

“Armed gunmen attacked the compound on Tuesday evening, clashing with Libyan security forces before the latter withdrew as they came under heavy fire. The armed group is said to have been protesting a film being produced in the United States.

The incident followed a protest in neighboring Egypt where demonstrators scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over what they said was a film that insulted Prophet Mohammad.”

9thDistrictNeighbor | September 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Welcome back, Carter.

What else did anyone expect from a commie rat *^#@&^* muslim? He sides with the koranimals because he is one.

This might sound irresponsible but if the Islamist can consistently get rid of State Department cretins, such as the ones whom generated and approved that statement, they would be doing the US a huge favor.

I’m not in the habit of apologizing to pedophiles or for the hurt feelings of the fools and idiots who blindly follow pedophiles.

It’s incredible that this could shake out to the benefit of the Democrats, but Politico has been gloating that Obama polls unambiguously better on national security than Romney does.

(After hesitating to type the above, I decided that unfortunately it is appropriate to mention the electoral implications.)

    1. Romney:

    I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.


    HT: Instapundit,who has other worthwhile posts and links about the attacks.

    2. Here’s Hillary:

    “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.

    The jihadis are shaking in their sandals now!

    3. Where’s Obama?

    Maybe Jarrett and Axelrod couldn’t be bothered to finish writing his statement today.

    Empty chair.

      Obviously things are not right in that embassy. The ambassador should be canned together with not a few of her staff. She should have been canned already.

      Or would that send the wrong signal to the Muslim world? Would it be gasp! an Islamophobic action?

      gs in reply to gs. | September 12, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      The “Good.” in my #1 is based on the assumption that the Romney people had verified the order of events wrt the attack and the embassy’s apology for the film. Talking Points Memo claims the Romney people had it backwards.

When Major Nidal Hasan stood up in a Fort Hood briefing room, shouted “Allāhu Akbar” and started firing on unarmed military personnel, he did several things. He declared himself an illegal enemy combatant, he turned that room into a combat zone, and he earned the right to face a military tribunal for treason. He should have been shot ages ago. Those injured and murdered there should receive military honors for their sacrifice.

But our military hoped it wouldn’t dampen our efforts to enlist Muslim into our military. When Afghani’s kill our service people in Afghanistan it’s called “blue on green”. What are going to call it when our Muslim soldiers kill their non-Muslim colleagues? We call it “work place violence”. A NYT piece is out claiming Bush had fore-knowledge of 9/11. I believe unlikely. However, Hasan’s superiors and co-workers were well aware of his radical Islamic views, but were afraid to voice their concerns over worries about political correctness. Were our enemies come after us, they need to come really hard. If they can get us to give up while our cowardly leaders are in place they will have a chance. First we fit off the attack, then we remove the sympathizers who will sell us out, then we go on the counter-attack.

Obama may be beginning to believe that he will be soundly thrashed in November (let it be so) and is no longer offering even a pretense of acting in behalf of the West, of freedom and increaased liberties, in the Middle East, or the well being and welfare of the United States. He enables Islamic extremism at every opportunity, the more recent, the more openly – in Iraq, Iran, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria. He offers no comfort or counsel to leaders who live in the most trying circumstances, he offers no reassurance of support for any proposal by them of the most modest expansion of liberty in their countries. He abandons leaders who have placed immense trust in the United States, at the risk of their own lives, and leaves them no choice but to entertain the entreaties of their adversaries and our enemies. He openly disses our staunchest allies (see the professor’s post following this one).

At home he weakened the economic strength and vitality of the country. He has overseen the creation of organizations and agencies in government everywhere to manage every aspect of our lives, most completely unfettered by oversight of any kind – electoral, legislative, or judicial. He has cast aside the gains won by force in support of diplomacy and rendered meaningless nearly fifty years of sacrifice by our armed forces, their families, and those of our allies. He has weakened our military and defenses and he has instigated class warfare of incredible depth.

He’s hurrying to put into place as much of his agenda as possible before being “let go” (Clint Eastwood). The best, short description of Obama I’ve ever read was posted by an LI reader quite some time ago – he is truly a “malevolent force.”

American sovereignty is being ignored in America and in her embassy abroad. So much for “home of the brave”. It’s more like home of the submissive. I wonder what else Americans are prepared to forsake. Perhaps their own children, by the millions, annually. Americans are voluntarily (e.g. abortion) and involuntarily (e.g. “Dream Act”) being displaced at home and abroad while they dream of instant gratification, most notably behaviors which constitute evolutionary dysfunction.

As for Egypt, with a reduced American influence and diminished secular authority, the oppression of Christians, mainly, will continue apace. Interesting enough, the violation of Christian rights barely qualifies as human rights violations according to “human rights” businesses.

Reminds me of pre-WWII Britain.

All the politicians (except Churchill) and media types were scrupulously respectful toward the Nazis. Hitler was referred to, with absurd reverence, as Chancellor Hitler or Herr Hitler. “Appeasement” wasn’t a bad word: it was a stylish foreign policy philosophy among the elites, Neville Chamberlain foremost. In short, the Establishment was willfully blind.

Substitute “Islamists” for “Nazis” and “Palin” or “Gingrich” for “Churchill,” and you have our situation today.

It bears remembering: the war the British could have avoided by squashing Hitler early on wound up ruining them as a world power. We are headed down the same road.

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to CalMark. | September 11, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Just when is the ‘earlier’ when a hobbled Britain could have ‘squashed Hitler”? 1933?

    Britain began the rearming in 1936 giving Germany a 3 year headway.

    Besides you could say the same about the USA.

      You’re playing fast and loose with facts. As usual.

      Hitler’s military forces were relatively weak at the time of the Anschluss and Sudetenland (circa 1938, long after your arbitrary 1936 date). Had someone stood up to him then, there’s a high probability Germany would have lost and the Nazi government would have collapsed. Messy, but limited mostly to the folks who deserved it, namely the German people who disliked Hitler (so they say now) so much.

      You say (in an insulting, gratuitous piece of foolishness!) that the U.S. could have done something about Hitler. OK: Europe today is even more Islamist-appeasing than the USA. By your logic, the U.S. should intervene in Europe and drive the Islamists out. Right?

Caroline Glick: “Since taking office, Obama has made clear that he views the US as an imperialist power on the world stage. As a result, the overarching goal of Obama’s foreign policy has been to end US global hegemony.”  unquote

Obama’s intent and goal is to ensure America’s impotency around the world, as well as at home.

The accumulated factual evidence is this end is overwhelming. From the sabotaging of America’s energy supply and production, to massive govt intervention and control of the US private sector economy, to redistributing American tax payer wealth to whomever he sees fit, against the will of the American people- especially to terrorist organizations like the PLA, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas.. On top of Obama’s dismantling of America’s Military, via slashing the Budget to a fraction what is should be, both in the current budget cuts, and now mandate forced Military budget cuts – “sequestration”, and from both political party hacks in Congress.. which drastically reduces much needed hardware equipment- planes, ships, tanks, etc, as well as destroying America’s nuclear arsenal and delivery systems, not to mention the reduction in US Military personnel at an astonishing rate, at a time of intense world dangers that poses another world war threat, especially with Iran on the verge of attaining, possessing nuclear weapons / WMD, in addition to the radical extremist islamic muslims taking control of every other country in the middle east- eg; Egypt, Libya, Syria, etc.. All of are a threat to, thus violates and endangers US National Security, not to mention puts into serious danger our closest mid-east ally, Israel.

In addition, Obama’s direct executive orders / official govt diplomatic policy directives are one of being apologetic, appeasing, and a position of capitulation, directed to all govt agencies and US Embassy’s around the world. Obama has made it clear what his intentions are- anti-American.

And the Democratic Congress under both Obamacrats and Republicrats- Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, as well as that GOP establishment RINO Boehner, do nothing but assist Obama every step of the way.

They should all be impeached !!

This so called outrage about a movie, is just their excuse to advance their anti-American jihad cause.. ie; spark another world wide anarchistic islamic muslim domino effect revolution. Freedom and Liberty are not subject to what radical muslim islamists say it is, because they are intolerant of differing opinions, ideologies, philosophies, religions, races, etc, etc..

After remaining silent all day, the lefty site I monitor is no longer able to contain their fury.

They’re enraged that the GOP is holding Obama accountable. Against the attackers, they make not a peep.

Like Instapundit says, you can’t make this stuff up.

Obama owns this. Interesting that he has his state department apologizing to Islamists for a U.S. citizen exercising his First Amendment rights.

Since when are Islamo-fascist sensitivities more important than our Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms? What a disgrace.

Freedom of Speech must be curtailed in times when someones feelings may be hurt, or its disruptive.
