“When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross,” Sinclair Lewis wrote in, “It Can’t Happen Here.” But as it turns out, fascism came to America wearing an Obama 2012 photo, filtered through Instagram, and carrying a Koran.
Charles Woods, the father of the murdered SEAL left to die by Obama in Benghazi, reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told him, that they were going to “arrest and prosecute” the man behind the Mohammed movie.
Mark Basseley Youssef may be a scoundrel and a liar. His movie may be hideous and false. He may have violated his probation. But there are probation violators all over the country today, roaming free after getting a slap on the wrist for their probation violation. The probation violation is a pretext. Youssef’s imprisonment is for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. Obama is trying to appease the Muslims who rioted and killed over the video, and to do what he can against the freedom of speech now, until such time as he can get “hate speech” laws in place that will enable him to finish the job.
Youssef had one of the top Federal prosecutors in California sicced on him and the same media maggots who threw a hysterical fit when Ari Fleischer merely told Bill Maher to shut up, have nothing to say. Oh pardon me, they do have something to say. They assure us that this political prosecution has nothing to do with the movie.
None of the violations had to do with the content of “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that depicts Mohammad as a religious fraud, pedophile and womanizer.
That’s according to the AP. But according to the Prosecutor actually handling the case… .
However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale argued Youseff’s lies about his identity have caused harm to others, including the film’s cast and crew. The movie sparked violence in the Middle East, killing dozens.
So it’s not about the movie, except it’s about the movie. So Obama has his first political prisoner, probably not the last. Muslims get upset easily and it will take a lot of political prisoners to appease them.
Freedom of Speech? Oh it’s one of those we used to have in the old America. Like Freedom of Religion. Before the thing that couldn’t happen here… happened here.
Shortly after Youssef left the courtroom, his lawyer, Steven Seiden, came to the front steps of the courthouse and told reporters his client wanted to send a message.
“The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden, but he didn’t kill the ideology,” Seiden said. source
