    Good to see they're standing up for free speech.

    Meanwhile there are thousands of jihadi videos calling for violence against the infidels on YouTube.

    Google is, White House isn't.

    I hate that they think they can do that but also say this:

    Got it. "Please don't kill us because there was nothing we could do to stop the movie," followed by "the filmmakers are a tiny minority that provoke conflict, not like us enlightened people."

    Sorry to be "nitpicky," but only an Obama official can turn a statement about freedom of speech into a groveling, spineless, sniveling pseudo-apology.

    How many god damn threads does there need to be on this situation? CE is tough enough to keep up with as it is.

    It should be called "The Happy Muslim Thread".

    Oh, literal....

    What ever happened to that old saying "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll fight to the death to defend your right to say it"?

    You don't think that the White House pressuring Google to remove this person's film from Youtube is a big enough deal to warrant its own thread? To me this is a HUGE issue.

    And well within the context of the other threads that have already been posted. Its not a separate issue, if that were the case there should be another thread for the embassy attack, the apology from Obama, the further protests, the further attacks, etc etc. I just think it would be a lot easier to navigate if it was centralized in one thread rather than spread out all over the place.

    You're probably right, but the thread would be 20 pages long by now and half of it would be making fun of MagicBob and KyleDriver

    One 20 page thread would be easier to follow than four 5 page threads. Condense the mocking and it makes it much easier for the readers.

    Whatever, the mods can merge it if they want. I won't be offended.

    Um, yes they did. And this is the proof. Keep plugging your ears and covering your eyes, maybe they'll stop if you don't pay any attention.

    What would be really funny is if they broadcasted meatspin or 2 Girls 1 Cup for the Hadji's.

    Technically, that's true. They traded it for the tyranny of a majority. Unfortunately, that mob is quite representative of the majority. So you're not saying much there, sweetheart.

    Fucking disgusting.

    At least the federal government is doing its job by protecting the violent protesters around the world from peaceful filmmakers in America.

    Ugh... I've been arguing this all day with some guy on my Facebook. I can't believe people think this meets the definition of "inciting violence." Inciting can only be active, not passive. Making an offensive video in an attempt to provoke violence isn't incitement. It is provocation, which is protected under the First Amendment.
