whidbey: Yeah but the movie and its attempts to offend are very much from a very ignorant right-wing perspective. To say they "aren't helping" isn't even in the same ballpark.


really? who cares? Who cares if it was 2 hours of the Koran being shiat on, pissed on,and burned while 2 girls 1 cup dances around it and shiats all over the place? Is that cause to kill anyone? The only reason anyone gives a damn about that dumb shiat unseen movie is because the nutcases over there have used it as an excuse to do what they already do, and that is hate america. They don't want to be our friends, so I simply say fark em.

So you don't believe that the people rioting have any real reason for lashing out at Jones' movie or for that matter, the West's foreign policy?

A discussion about legitimate grievances about our foreign policy? That's fine. Telling us that our First amendment freedoms are unacceptable, and will have to be rescinded? No, not fine.


Using speech to express a political opinion which criticizes the First Amendment is no good?

I have no more sympathy for these idiots than I do for American conservatives who want to carve out an exception to the First Amendment in order to criminalize burning the American flag.

whidbey: Just noting the shops from the self-professed conservative(s) really did have a mean-spirited bent to them. Coincidence?


Actually, I didn't really notice any serious political bias one way or the other. Maybe its there and I'm not seeing it. Newsweek is already rightly getting a ton of crap for its sensationalist cover from people far better placed than any of us. Maybe a little humor isn't so bad.

It was kinda sorta called for.

There is no one that they get along with. From the Israelis and Americans to the Chinese and Filipinos. They are outraged by everyone.

Even other Muslims

Because we're supposed to laugh and make captions for the "hijinks" of people exercising legitimate grievances at offensive material produced from this country. They're the ones we should be ridiculing. Got it.

I don't remember you being such an ass. What happened?

you took a break from Fark and forgot some stuff about people?


I refuse to use Favorite with notes because I find it hard to believe that you can capture someone with a one-liner. Of course I am wrong. Fark is the playground of one dimensional characters.

So what? Do you want to ban "Mein Kampf" from bookshelves? "The Communist Manifesto"? Really? A judicial order making this guy apologize and make restitution? Are you aware there is *zero* chance such an order would ever survive an appeal?

Actually, I think that's a great idea. He should be forced to donate 50% of all proceeds to Muslim support groups.


You mean 50% of nothing? You really think someone will pay money for that crappy video? Or do you mean from the donations that are pouring in from like minded individuals?

Why is calling out a bunch of intentionally disingenuous photoshops while at the same time respecting the irreverent "humor" of the person posting them "being an ass?"

And in case you noticed, I'm kind of pissed off that the idea that we bear some burden of responsibility for sh*tstains like Jones and his movie. Sorry if you don't feel like being part of the discussion.

These people have something similar to the Stockholm Syndrome. They live in fear of terrorism (the captors) -- then they start seeing the world as the captors do.

Apples and oranges those are.


Again, I really don't expect you to seriously discuss this anymore.

You're fine with giving Jones a pass for making a movie that incites riots, I'm not. I explained why.
The least you could acknowledge the merit of the argument.

Do you have the "right" to incite violence with your words or media?
 
2012-09-17 06:00:43 PM
As many others have pointed out . . .

When I was growing up (60's), we had three weekly news magazines in the house.

1. Time
2. US News and World Report
3. Newsweek

We were taught to read all three, and create a word salad removing the most inflammatory left and right wing buzzwords. This resulting stew had at least a reasonable chance at being both a factual report and a reasoned analysis.

Now I read none of the above, simply because of garbage like this. Sadly, there are no solidly good news outlets these days. My scanning (not in any particular order):

New York Times
Los Angeles Times (off-again, on-again)
BBC
PBS
NPR
Al Jazeera (English Edition)

This means local and regional news takes a hit, unless I want to wade through the cesspool that is the Orange County Register or the even more sensationalist local news channels.

It's yet another example of a race to the bottom.

You know, if 1/2 of Americans didn't demonize education and critical thinking, this wouldn't be a problem. However, that's another rant.

skullkrusher: whidbey: Jones made the movie. It can be successfully argued that the movie, whether seen or not, was the catalyst behind the recent violence. Yes I know there were other factors.

Where did you see that he made the movie?


Whoever made it. I'll concede that it sounds like more than just one person made it.

whidbey: Jones' free speech is not absolute if the offensive contents of his movie invokes violence against our way of life.

oh, so like a fiery political speech that leads to the shutdown of financial institutions and commerce as people react to it? People certainly have a degree of moral culpability when they engage in activities they have a reasonable suspicion will lead to violence (assuming they are not directly inciting violence). However, a law against such a thing would have a pretty significant impact on the sort of speech which leads to change.


Again, I ask you to consider the "clear and present danger" clause regarding the limitations of free speech.

Yeah well I don't. Unlike you, I believe that the people who made the movie "The Innocence of Muslims" should have to atone for what they have done.

Do you think the media is at fault for giving so much attention to Jones, et al.? I would guess that there are a number of movies out there that would cause more outrage if the media were to promote them like they did this one.

Could you be more disingenuous? Limits on free speech come into play when someone advocates violence, not when they say something that pisses people off. The position you're attempting to defend would allow the most violent, in-bred morons in the world to decide what is an acceptable topic for discussion.

No, it isn't. Any more than an imam giving a speech about how America is waging war on Muslim people.

I get the partial culpability angle, I really do. It's just nuts to pretend that the bulk of the responsibility lies with the makers of a YouTube video rather than those murdering because it or that we should do something legally to prevent it from happening
