We have the dichotomy of having people stuck in the 17th century and technology of the 21th century. It's an odd combination.

It's like giving a box of hand grenades and a case of Red Bull to a group of hyperactive 8yr olds at a junior engineering camp. You know it's going to end badly, that it's going to be darkly funny to watch, but occasionally one of them will make a working catapult and you're going to have to duck for cover.

We should really continue our decades-long practice of blowing them up. Surely they'll stop retaliating - just like we would, if we were placed in a similar situation.

what's even weirder is when people in THIS country think that we should back down and prevent people in the US from saying or doing anything that might offend the people in other countries. look - I'm a US citizen. If one day I decide to make a video that says Mohammad was a piker...I can do it and you can't stop me. I can upload it to youtube...and you can't stop me. you might not like my efforts, you probably won't appreciate them...but hey, it's a free(ish) country, and I've got a right to be offensive. you can refute my opinions, write letters to the editor about it, organize boycotts of my youtube channel....but you cannot stop me from publishing my opinion, nor can you have the government shut me down.

I can mock, deride and/or corrupt any religion I want. Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Scientology, Paganism...hell, I can even make up my OWN religion (all hail the Machine God!). all of that is protected. If someone over in the middle east gets upset that I've decided their faith is obsolete and needed to be upgraded to Islam 4.0...hey, that's fine. they can be as offended as they want. But here in THIS country, they can't murder me for my actions. that's because we've got the 1st amendment.

If these people didn't have religion as a reason to blow shiat up they would come up with another excuse. Shiatty people do shiatty things, and they'll hide under the most high minded ideas they know of to do them.

2012-09-16 11:36:54 AM
I'm just gonna quote from this decent article and then GTFO of here

For example, it looks from afar as if ongoing demonstrations and disturbances are all about this film, and as if they're therefore a reminder of how touchy those darn Muslims are. Well, it's true that many Muslims in not-very-cosmopolitan, not-very-diverse, and historically authoritarian countries don't yet share our commitment to free speech and pluralism, and react accordingly to offensive films. But it's also true that these disturbances are about a lot more than this film. A number of grievances are at work, including, as Issandr El Amrani notes, various aspects of American foreign policy. (As either I or my wife can tell you, the issue that sparks an argument and is ostensibly its subject isn't always what the argument is really about.)

Similarly, when Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, seems insufficiently concerned about the security of the American Embassy in Cairo--and when the Muslim Brotherhood itself supports (peaceful) demonstrations against the film--it may be tempting to see this as confirming fears about what happens when Islamists take over a country.

In truth, the behavior of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood are less an expression of Islamism than a response to domestic political forces. Morsi and the Brotherhood are trying to fend off a political threat from Salafis who are true extremists; believe it or not, agitating against this movie is a way for them to increase the chances that radical Islamism will fail in Egypt--much as Republicans or Democrats may move toward the other party during the general election campaign in order to defeat it.


There was a really good op-ed in the Guardian from a Egyptian Coptic woman living in the US... and maybe it wasn't in the Guardian cause I can't find it.

Anyway.
 
2012-09-16 11:36:55 AM
You remember Freedom Fries? Yeah, that's what a lot of this violent demonstration is about. A small group of people manipulating millions to do the cabal's bidding.

A lot like American Idol.

Dear author

Stop taking who are engaged in murder and looting at their word for why they're doing it. This was not 'protesting that turned into rioting.' This was a coordinated attack on US soil and should be treated as such. This is a culture where 'if enough people are doing it, it must be okay' is a legal precedent. That is why one man raping two women is the man's fault, but ten men raping a woman is the woman's fault. They were going to attack, this was just their convenient excuse for their behavior.

Dear People who don't Practice Religion and still don't have a clue;

You really think they are rioting over a movie at this point? That's adorable. You probably thought the London riots were really about jobs and economy status too. Nah, this is about giving a black eye to the West. Anything that is even remotely related. Which is why the German embassy was attacked even though it has fark all to do with the movie. It's cute the people still think that if you apologize for the movie and bring the film makers to "justice," the riots would cease. Adorable even.
