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.
