common sense is an oxymoron: This asshole made a film, knowing that it would "probably" lead to mob violence...and it did. At the very least, he can be exposed as the asshole he is.


The reason why we have a first amendment right is to protect assholes as much as good citizens.

If you get into the habit of lynching people (or, just as badly, allowing them to be lynched) whenever they offend someone, what you'll find is that there are bigots ready to be "offended" by everything.

You are trading a right for security, and you'll get neither.

Blue_Blazer: DO NOT POKE THE farkING BEAR YOU farkING IDIOTS

Cuyose: We should just outlaw abortions then I guess, you insight people with that and they just end up blowing up clinics. Prolly should just adopt the westburough church thinking too, they seem to get pissed at stuff quite frequently. I don't think the ELF likes cutting down trees for houses and stuff, leading to burning of university building researching geneology and botany, so we should prolly not research that stuf any more and live in mud huts.


You're asserting a false dichotomy. It is at least theoretically possible to find a rational compromise between "not being a raging asshat" and "total capitulation."

I would also like to say that there is by necessity a gap between "what is right and proper" and "what is illegal." In that gap are actions that are mean or stupid or cruel or ill-advised that people SHOULDN'T do, yet should be ALLOWED to do. When my sister was in high school, she wore a t-shirt that said "Christianity is stupid." That's a terrible thing to put on a t-shirt. But she absolutely had the right to wear it.

Trying to force that gap shut by penalizing every bad thing people ever do is a bad idea, yet it is something one sees both liberals and conservatives (as well as people who might not fairly be described by either therm) frequently attempt this quixotic feat.

No, there are limits to the first amendment when your "speech" can cause a danger to others. That's why there are the limitations of "fighting words" and "incitement." Incitement has been part of common law for hundreds of years, and it hasn't led to oppression. Fighting words was defined in the 1850's and has since been further narrowed. But they're still limitations on what you can say that we all pretty much agree on.

Basically if you know something you say or do can cause people harm and you do it anyway, you're A) an asshole and B) liable to be arrested for doing it. In this case they stated that they knew something like the attacks would happen because of their film and they did it anyway. Not only did they put Americans around the world at risk, but now you can bet every one of those actors (who were unwittingly dubbed over) is now marked for death. I'm pretty sure that qualifies under one or both of those provisions.

Nope. They can only agree that made up shiat is the best reason to murder someone.

Can you please cite a passage in the Christian Testament where Yeshua Ben-Josef says to kill people in His name?


Grow up, little man. The alleged statements of people long dead who may or may not have ever existed, as documented by the fabulous fables of ancient ignorant peoples, should have no bearing on the intelligent conversation of thinking adults who are talking about anything else. I don't give a wet fart what anyone in the Bible supposedly said, and it's incredible to me that anyone with pubes does. Make-believe is for children.

Why not all of them? Asking people to believe in anything with not a shred of scientific evidence is rationally no different from asking children to believe in Santa Claus. And look how readily they do. And look how readily alleged grown-ups continue to believe in silly ancient stories, only because others they know and respect do. And look at the staggering variety of silly ideas all over the world. There has probably never been a time in human history without some kind of religion, but that only proves that people have been infantile all this time. And what has been the cost? This entire thread started with one group of religious lunatics deliberately baiting another, who were then foolish enough to take the bait and act as if there might be some worthwhile outcome for anyone. At what point do we grow up and start acting like real adults in the universe?

Cpl.D: doglover: Cpl.D: I thought they equipped all US embassies with that active denial system

You know what looks worse in the media than your embassy gettin' a little B&E? Unleashing automatic weapons on unarmed civilians. Hell, we're still learning about a handful of musket balls launched more than 200 years ago at a couple early Bostonians who you probably would have shot too.

As bad as riots get, active denial systems aren't for mere flag burning and trespass. That's why they keep the weapons in the secure areas, which weren't raided.

Um... the active denial system isn't a firearm. It's that satellite-dish directional-sound beam thing. You point it in a direction, turn it on, and anyone along the beam hears a loud assed noise. That's it. No bullets. No missiles. No flying corgis. I recall they'd said they were going to use these nonlethal devices in embassies. I guess they didn't get around to it.


Something cruel and unusual something

If it was a FARKer with a different opinion from them, they'd probably celebrate, or at least thank Darwin.

First they came for Theo van Gogh, and I said, "Good riddance, he was a jerkass neocon."

Then they came for Terry Jones, and I said, "Good riddance, he should have known better than to insult Islam on purpose."

Then they came for Matt Parker and Trey Stone, and I said, "Good riddance, South Park hasn't been funny for years."

'Nuff said.

Is that a new meme or something?


During the last election, a number of accounts were created for the purpose of alienating everything related to President Obama. Some of the accounts belong to plain old everyday bigots who would be scrawling out racist manifestos on toilet paper with crayons if there wasn't an internet. Some accounts probably belong to internet boiler room operations run by PR firms tied to conservative interests.

BullBearMS: Hmmm... There was an interesting theory being discussed on Slashdot the other day.

whenever the UN's food price index, which measures the monthly change in the price of a basket of food commodities, climbs above 210, the conditions ripen for social unrest around the world.

(Said the researchers behind the study) "on December 13, 2010, we submitted a government report analyzing the repercussions of the global financial crises, and directly identifying the risk of social unrest and political instability due to food prices." Four days later, Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire as an act of protest in Tunisia.

Today, the food price index is hovering around 213, where it has stayed for months-just beyond the tip of the identified threshold.


Clearly that's too complicated an explanation for us.

Marine1: Just wanted to pipe in with this question:

How many Farkers would say this film was a bad idea if Muhammad were swapped with Jesus of Nazareth and knew that the world's Christians wouldn't be beating down embassy doors to kill people?


Perhaps you're too young to remember The Last Temptation of Christ, but the answer is yes, Christian fundamentalists would protest, even riot, in response to a movie they found insulting to their religion. What Farkers would say about the creation of the movie I couldn't tell you, especially since I'm not sure what you mean by "a bad idea."

Your exception would leave a possible farker swinging from a tree, and you honestly don't see anything wrong with that?


You think I want to see the filmmaker lynched? Or that I'm somehow defending the attackers? Hardly.

My point is that the filmmaker went into this with the understanding that it would "probably" lead to mob violence. Whether you consider the attacks senseless or not, by concerned worshipers or by bloodthirsty subhumans, they were a foreseeable (and in fact foreseen) consequence of the filmmaker's actions. Under California law, this might be considered gross negligence.

It may all be a moot point, anyway, since the Libyan attackers seem to have used the anti-film demonstrators as cover (whether planned or not remains to be seen) for their own retaliation following a previous takeout of an AQ leader in Libya. Unless there's a backlash against Coptic Christians in Egypt, the filmmaker might be off the hook.
