If this guy sparked the riots, I'll look the other way while Obama has him rendered to custody of some Islamic activist group overseas.

Bloody William: The religion being fostered in the mid-east is every bit as sick and bastardized as the anti-science, anti-women religion being fostered in the south.

This is where you lost me. Kansas, anyone? Indiana? Central Pennsylvania? Idaho?

Please make your point without dickish regionalism.

topnacho: This asshat pulled off a very "successful" troll of fundamentalist muslims. He knew exactly what he was doing and it lead directly to the deaths of our people over seas. He is a complete cock munch for doing it, but he didn't do anything illegal. No matter how much we disagree with what this guy said, as Americans, we should all stand behind his right to say it.

So what's his Fark handle?

jso2897: Came to see rat-wingers white-knighting a career criminal.
Leaving, satisfied.

Hollywood's been white-knighting Roman Polanski for 40 years. Can't the rest of us have a bit of self-righteous fun?

way south: They took the guns, they took the drugs, they took the money and now they've come for the free speech.
Hardly surprising.

Obviously they left some drugs behind for you to take. . .

I see the usual suspects are mad at me, and I completely understand why. You're worried I'm right.

But come on, this isn't unreasonable. Obama's biggest strength is foreign policy, and that's a traditional Republican strength. So let's weaken it: anti-American riots! That'll do the trick. But how do we do it? Of course, a movie about how Muhammad wasn't perfect. We know how the Arab world reacts. This response was completely predicable, with a little manipulating. Get some important clerics to see it, get some hotheads to rile people up, boom, riots. So of course some Republican group sponsors this. Depending on how it plays out, it could easily shift opinion against Obama, and all it would take would be a couple of dead Americans and a few million bucks. These people don't care about their fellow man, so the deaths are irrelevant to them, and they'll spend anything to get Obama out of the White House.

Now come on people, this isn't an unreasonable extrapolation. Might even explain why Romney ran so quickly to condemn it: he knew it was coming. He's just such an incredibly bad politician he muffed it.

Weaver95: actually, I suspect DIA would be heavily armed, so I think you need to rethink your scenario....

Shiat! He's on to me!

cameroncrazy1984: Weaver95: I would consider religious fanatics going out and murdering people over my book(s) to be a mark of honor. that means that my talent as a writer was able to reach them, force them to really think about what I said and how if affects them.

No, reaching them would include opening a dialogue, not blatantly accusing their prophet of committing mortal sins. But apparently you believe in a baser level of discourse than I do.

At least you've found a way to take the high ground about suppressing speech to placate a bunch of savages.

cameroncrazy1984: It is entirely your problem if you are so negligent in your production that four Americans die in reaction to it. That is 100% on you

Your words anger me. So much so that I am going to shoot my coworker because of it. Now if you will just go quietly with the nice policeman who will soon be knocking at your door....

St_Francis_P: [Updated at 1:40 a.m. Saturday: Whitmore told the Times that Nakoula was taken in for a voluntary interview with probation officials and has not been arrested or detained.]

Voluntary as in "come with us or we might accidentally leave your real name and address where the local bin-crazypantses can find it".
