Media Echo Chamber applies Sharia to U.S. Freedom of Speech
The mainstream American media is floating the recent U.S. Embassy apology as a new world standard for universal free speech rights. The 9/11 U.S. embassy apology condemned “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions” and “firmly reject[ed] the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Undaunted by the cluster-fuffle of the statement's late disavowal by the White House, the Make-Believe Media advanced the new legal standard and began the witch hunt to blame someone – anyone – other than the Muslims who killed Americans in Libya or the predictable result of Obama’s failed foreign policy apology tour.
Media outlets including MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Christiane Amanpour on ABC, and her husband James Rubin on CNN, suggested that such "abuse" of free speech may be equivalent to falsely "yelling fire in a theater" and could excuse the Muslims’ murderous rage as an understandable form of righteous indignation. They focused on the filmmaker’s intention to incite violence. This is akin to blaming the American female journalist for the Muslim gang rape.
To CNN’s Islamic supremacist and apologist Omid Safi, professor of religious studies at University of North Carolina, offensive words are analogous to dropping bombs and military occupation. CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen says making a comment about free speech is okay, but actually speaking effectively so as to provoke a reaction, whether it be thoughtful, emotional, religious or political or otherwise, is “irresponsible.” Such broad definitions of hurtful speech would classify Rush Limbaugh as a weaponized conservative universal free speech abuser deserving of legal censure or physical attack for hurting liberals’ feelings daily.
By entertaining such bias and by fueling the political witch hunt to pin American deaths on an unknown Israeli filmmaker, or a small town Christian preacher, the Make-Believe Media is aiding and abetting Muslim extremists’ attack against the U.S. Constitution. They are massaging and redefining the First Amendment to fit a new universal world order to suppress any speech that could be offensive to the hearer, most particularly Islamic hearers. And justice comes not in court-based rulings but by unilateral forcible attacks against convenient targets of Islamic passion. This is quite simply a back-door introduction of Sharia law to limit American free speech.
