That's how things work in the age of Obama. We don't have blasphemy laws. We just have a government that enforces them.
You know how the Obama Administration asked YouTube to look at the Mo trailer a second time and see if it meets the criteria for censoring it, without actually telling them to censor it?
Well this is kind of like that. Muslims want the filmmaker to be punished. So the probation authorities are being pushed to find him in violation of probation so they can stick him in jail.
US probation officials are looking into potential violations of prison release terms by a California man linked to an anti-Islam film that triggered violent protests in Muslim countries, a court spokeswoman said on Friday.
"The US probation office in the central district of California is reviewing the case," said Karen Redmond, spokeswoman for the administrative office of the US Courts.
On what grounds are they reviewing the case? Don't ask, or they might start "reviewing" you too. That's how things work in the age of Obama.
We don't have blasphemy laws. We just have a government that enforces them.
There's no Federal censorship of blasphemous material. The government will just flag the material and even though YouTube reviewed it already and only blocked it in the Muslim world, it will strongly suggest to YouTube that it review it again and find it in violation.
And the "perpetrator" of a movie will have his physical location and information about his family splattered all over the media, even though he likely has relatives in Egypt and is a target for death threats. And then the government will "review" any grounds for sticking him in jail so the Muslims will stop attacking Obama's embassies in the Muslim world.
But don't say the word, "Sharia". Only Islamophobic crazies think we're going to have men tried and imprisoned for blaspheming against Islam... unless they're in the military. Or unless they really upset Muslims.
In Los Angeles, law enforcement sources say authorities are focused on learning how the "Innocence of Muslims'" movie relates to the violence, including the killing this week of the U.S. ambassador to Libya. They also want to make sure those connected to the production are aware of possible dangers posed by their association, sources said.
