Muslim Appeasement Censorship Begins

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


What was that quote that the left used to love to throw around during the Bush years? Oh right, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

But all it takes is a few mob attacks and we can kiss the Bill of Rights goodbye. The media has coverage has repeatedly claimed that the attacks were motivated by a movie critical of Mohammed.

The attacks were specifically geared toward September 11 for reasons that had nothing to do with the movie. If it hadn’t been this movie, some other provocation or cause would have been found. When the cartoon protests happened, they had nothing to do with the cartoons, they used some actual cartoons and some cartoons that they themselves created, to stage protests on their own timeline.

Other attacks have been motivated by fake videos of American sexual assaults on Muslims and false reports of a Koran in the toilet. If there is no actual cause, the people who stage these things will invent one.

But that hasn’t stopped MSNBC talking heads from promoting blasphemy charges against anyone who supposedly offends Muslims. In the UK, Channel 4 pulled the screening of a movie questioning the Islamic narrative for “security reasons”.

Muslim violence works hand-in-glove with those who want to censor free speech so as not to offend Muslims. They might want to ask domestic Christian Copts how well censoring themselves has protected them from Muslim violence.

The ugly truth about Islam is that Muslim violence is not some force that is released only in response to provocations, it’s a cynical and voluntary abuse that Muslims have complete control over. Going Dhimmi accomplishes nothing except to reward the killers.

    Thank YOU, Mr. Greenfield. Your pamphlet, too.

    I can see that all the Obama Administration's apologizing and groveling before Muslims over the past few months has certainly mollified them and stopped them from attacking us. Just as all of Israel's concessions of land have stopped Muslims' attempts to destroy it.

    What we variously see as generosity, fairness, reciprocity, respect, forbearance, tolerance, or compassion, Muslims see only as a weakness to be taken advantage of. They understand nothing except brute force.

    It's time we started talking to them in their own language.

    When a wildfire burns in Colorado or California it is started by a spark but the kindling is all over the place. Islam is a fire waiting to happen. Better to burn the wood as soon as possible so that the fires won't be as big. We need more Muhammad films.

    Humor is under attack in America; Muhammad has become off limit for jokesters. Fear of inciting riots has curbed freedom of speech, but some fun lovers are still committing Blasphemy after a few drinks.

    The press is just going along with the Islamic spin because it pushes blame away from Obama.
