A week after Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, and three other brave Americans, were murdered by Muslim terrorists on Sept 19, 2012, Jay Carney, on behalf of the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, issued a statement, “We [specifically President Obama] are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the prophet Muhammad, and obviously we [especially President Obama] have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this.
"We [especially President Obama] know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory. But we've spoken repeatedly about the importance of upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution."
Press Secretary Carney went on to say the White House didn't question the magazine's right to publish the cartoons, but just "the judgment behind the decision to publish it." In essence, President Obama publicly accused Charlie Hebdo's publishers of bad judgment, giving a green-light for last weeks' Islamic terrorists to go on a rampage and murder anybody and everybody they could.
Obama didn't fly to the anti-terror demonstration in Paris because it was a causal West Wing blunder. Obama purposefully, and with malice of forethought, didn't want to memorialize the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists who Obama believes had slandered the one who Obama calls "The Prophet Muhammad."
The real problem was Charlie Hebdo's cartoonists hadn't gotten the memo that they had unwittingly violated Obama's secret new executive order anti-Muslim speech-crime against publishing something that was "deeply offensive to many [Muslims] and have the potential to be inflammatory [to many Muslims]."
As an important preface, the CBS News release of the 2012 Carney/Obama/Hebdo story shows just how disconnected CBS is from the real world. This is because the network only now re-released the 2012 archived story not to put Obama in a bad light, but because CBS thought that it showed everyone how smart and wise Obama was for warning us that Muslim terrorists were going to murder Hebdo's editorial staff because of its cartoons.
Instead of showing everyone how smart Obama is, it only showed how Obama had personally laid the very intellectual predicate and foundation for the last week's Islamist murderers to make good on their threats.
Now, to show how truly inane and pandering to the Islamist murderers Obama's deeply offensive free speech carve-out for Muslims is, just imagine if an artist took a statue of Jesus Christ on a crucifix and immersed it in a clear plexiglass vat of the artist's own urine, and the Federal Government helped pay for the artist through the National Endowment of Arts, and the "Piss Christ" was exhibited in an American museum.
The trouble is that the Piss Christ art actually happened in 2012, and for that slander against a religion Obama was totally silent. To Obama, Piss Christ is art deserving absolute 1st Amendment protection. Any Christian terrorists who harmed an American ambassador because of Piss Christ would have been labeled Christian terrorists, just like Muslim terrorists should be labeled Muslim terrorists
Alas, no, outside the United States, Obama only gives total protection for Islamic terrorist murderers to commit murder and mayhem because Obama believes they get reasonably upset — because someone wrote or drew something "deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory."
To the disconnected point of CBS' release of the 2012 Obama/Hebdo story, do you really have to be smart to know that if you publicly challenge Islam, Islamists will come and try to murder you? Weren't Salman Rushdie’s translators and publishers murdered because of the 1989 Iranian government's fatwa by the Ayatollah Khomeini to murder Rushdie for his publishing of the "Satanic Verses"? Wasn't Theodore Van Gogh murdered in 2004 because he produced Ayaan Hirsi Ali's short film "Submission," which criticized the treatment of women in Islam?
It isn't smart Obama predicted Hebdo's massacre — it's Obama pure rationalizing of the Islamists' barbaric terrorists' behavior.
What Jay Carney, on behalf of "the Leader of the Free World," did by attacking Charlie Hebdo in 2012 was to virtually say that with respect to supposedly protected first amendment free speech involving Muslims, the prophet Muhammad, insulting Islamic terror, or even Islam itself — any anti-Islam comment is like yelling fire in a crowded theater where people can get killed running for the exits.
According to Obama, "if one mentions Islam in a negative light, Islamic terrorists (enforcers) will kill you, and I, the President of the United States, will do nothing to stop them from killing you."
So, even though Obama ostensibly claimed he was upholding freedom of expression, Obama actually said that it's not "good judgment" to exercise freedom of expression when it comes to statements against Islam, or against the terrorists that directly base their terrorism on Islam.
Barack Obama wasn't upholding free speech — he was eliminating it. The job of the President of the United States is to protect free speech, not question and derogate the speaker's judgment. In short, seemingly by executive-order, Obama deleted First Amendment free speech, concerning criticizing Muslims, and made any anti-Muslim speech into a Muslim self-enforced speech-crime.
Obama defines his new executive-order anti-Muslim speech-crime as speech that "is deeply offensive to many [Muslims] and has the potential to be inflammatory [to Muslims], then you're not allowed to say it because the Muslim enforcers will get violent, execute judgment, and murder you, and the United States won't protect you."
Also, about the same time in 2012, Obama immediately made personally good on his new executive order on anti-Muslim speech crimes by arresting, on a trumped-up charge, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Coptic Christian who made the short movie trailer of the "Innocence of Muslims" which Obama claimed caused the "spontaneous" Benghazi massacre of ambassador Stevens — and 3 other brave Americans.
Every Muslim terrorist in the world got Obama's message when Obama arrested Mr. Nakoula. Here's a shout-out to all the world's Islamic terrorists mass-murderers, Obama has your back, I'll arrest anybody who draws the Prophet, or criticizes Islamic terror derived from Islam. Or, you can use their offensive speech as a reason to kill anybody else you want.
The real consequences of Obama's executive-order anti-Muslim speech-crime is immediately applicable to what used to be protected free speech concerning Israel, and the fight for Israel's existence. As a Newtonian thought-experiment, "Isn't any speech supporting Israel and supporting Israel's right to militarily defend itself against Muslim terrorists bent on Israel's eradication almost surely to be considered "deeply offensive to many [Muslims] and have the potential to be inflammatory [to many Muslims]"?" Sure it is.
So, under Obama's executive order anti-Muslim speech-crime, one cannot publicly defend or support Israel anymore, because supporting Israel will get the Muslims, and anti-Israel psychopaths upset, and violent. We can't have that, can we?
In fact, under Obama's executive order anti-Muslim speech crime, any criticism of Islam will subject you to justifiable Islamic violence and murder. That's probably why Obama still considers the Fort Hood mass-murdering terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan's murder of all those precious soldiers at Fort Hood merely just "work place violence."
Unknowingly, the U.S. Army, and numerous U.S. soldiers, violated Obama's executive order concerning anti-Muslim Speech-crimes. Hasan overheard U.S. soldiers denigrating the Muslims terrorists America killed in Iraq and Afghanistan — who supported Bin Laden's murder of thousands of Americans on 9/11.
So, under Obama's new executive order on anti-Muslim speech crime, Obama believes Hasan and the entire Muslim world was truly insulted by the other U.S. soldiers' failure to respect Islam, and the Prophet Muhammad. Because to Obama, even to just say "Muhammad," was merely a historical figure, and not "the Prophet" is, in and of itself, to commit blasphemy worthy of execution.
To Barack Obama, Hasan wasn't an Islamic terrorist when he was screaming Allahu Akbar while murdering unarmed soldiers, Hasan was merely self-enforcing Obama's executive order on anti-Muslim speech-crimes. For, Obama surely added a signing statement empowering offended Muslims to execute self-help enforcement of Obama's anti-Muslim speech-crime executive-order.
