Freedom of speech? Not really...

Say the wrong thing? And you could be called to answer to the thought police. The president may be apologizing for you to Muslims and the FBI and others might be sent to get you. Just to see if they can trump something up to arrest you for.

I have seen the trailer to this so called film that is pissing off the Arab world. Actually, there are several trailers on the net about it. In my opinion, is is a weak minded attempt at film making and the satire is lacking any understandable intent other than to attack Islam and their prophet, but is that really the point of the present crisis in the middle east? Or is this just one more excuse to flai about and burn and kill and claim offense to their religion. .

I have seen and read a lot of things in my life that I believe are reprehensible, but the bottom line remains, as long as America is a free country, people have a right to express their views. Regardless of how senseless, stupid or inflammatory those views are. 

Watching Hillary Clinton giving her speech on the return of the four killed in Libya was something I also found reprehensible. Not to the same degree as this jerk's film, but none the less her remarks of apology and prominently asserting that America had nothing to do with this film had no place at a solemn (or supposedly solemn) honorable transfer service of the remains of the dead.

Go back to Washington and politic for your boss Hillary, there is no place for it in a setting such as that. As for this Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and his so called film? Quit playing it. Quit remarking about it. Quit giving it media coverage and do the same with the heathens in the middle east who have made a vocation out of being insulted and threatening America.

Meanwhile, try voting for a president who might actually do something in response to attacks like these, instead of some apologist who like all leftist, always believes that America is wrong regardless of the facts.

LA Sheriff: Feds interview Calif. filmmaker
A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff's station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Don Walker said.
Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.
Walker said Nakoula traveled voluntarily in a squad car with deputies.
"He went to the Cerritos station to talk with probation officers. He's not under any arrest," Walker said.
