UGH! I can’t say it better than Atlas Shrugs:
As I long suspected, Muslim Brotherhood and Hmas front CAIR, had no intention of allowing an apostate from Islam to live freely as a glowing example to other Muslims dying to leave Islam.
All the details are in the article there.
I ask you, is this America, or isn’t it? Riqfa Bary wished to practice her choice of religion, Christianity. This is the very religion our country was founded upon, and by which principals Americans were to be self-governed.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. -John Adams
God help us if our justice system betrays Riqfa. We will have become that against which our country was founded in protest.

There couldn’t be a more true statement made about what I’ve been seeing on the internet of late. YouTube allows terrorists sympathizers (or worse) to use YouTube servers to host videos that the terrorists then post links for downloading or
embed on their websites.
There’s even a LOVELY group called “F*ck The Troops” [group title editing mine]. Even after being reported multiple times, it’s still up.
Then you’d think a group called “Support Our Troops!” would be safe, right? Not really.
A friend of mine found that group and had the following conversation:
For confronting this twisted evil, my friend was given the following warning:
It was also delivered to my friend’s email address:
The fact that a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer attempts to use any or all of these services is to be expected. What is mind-boggling is that when each of these entities is
notified of the fact that they are providing free services to terrorists, or that they are hosting content which calls for violence against specified groups, the entities have thumbed their collective noses at the person bringing the complaint, ignored their own terms of service, permitted the activity to continue, and even threatened the accuser. Yippee! They can be so proud of the contributions they are making to society.

I AM NOT A HUGE PROPONENT OF ALEX JONES, SOME OF HIS STUFF IS OVER THE TOP, SOME OF HIS STUFF IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY. WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND THEIR THUGS ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO IS WRONG. WE NEED TO DEAL WITH THIS CRAP NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. WE NEED TO OVERTURN THE LIBERAL AGENDA TO SILENCE US.
Obama Speech Police Shutdown Top You Tube Videos
A video on TheAlexJonesChannel on YouTube has been taken down- not due to
claims of copyright infringement or etc.- but due to alleged violations of the
You Tube “Community Guidelines“:
We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express unpopular
points of view. But we don’t permit hate speech
(speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual
Alex Jones defends attempts to shut down his speech on You Tube through phony claims of racism This suspension is apparently based on complaints that the video is ‘racist’- as numerous comments posted below the now suspended video titled ‘Obama JOKER $1000 Video Contest: The establishment will go nuts!!!,’ as well as several
other copies of the video, indicate. One such Obama Brownshirt censor using the handle ‘barackobamaexpress’advocated:
For anyone who reads this; if you want to do your part today –
something patriotic today, report this video to Youtube administration. Alex Jones promotes racism, and fearmongering. He’s a known liar.
This is startling not only because the video- critical of President Obama’s
policies- mentions nothing at all about race, but because You Tube is evidently willing to censor simply on the basis of receiving a significant number of complaints- not on the basis of whether or not its terms are upheld.
There is no violation of the so-called ‘hate speech’ guidelines, but rather it is clear that one too many people seeking to remove the video and attack the account submitted fraudulent complaints.
Alex Jones is currently considering further action to restore the video and protect his free speech. Please support this fight against political thuggery, and remember that if we don’t band together to stop yet another out of control administration, then we’ll all hang separately later if things are allowed to go to extremes.
This brown shirt mentality was not confined only to the Nazis, but has cropped up throughout history. We cannot allow cult followers of Obama to be transformed into the next Maoist China, Stalinist Russia, or any of the countless repression regimes.
Political-speech police appear throughout history. Censorship and thuggery is a common hallmark amongst tin-pot 3rd World dictators and mass-murdering autocrats alike.The cry of ‘racism’ has become, instead, the first-reflex attack against anyone critical of President Obama & his policies anytime it is easier and more effective than actually responding to legitimate critique of the real issues.
Heightening the race issue- truly a canard obscuring necessary debate over the massive legislation racing through the Democrat-controlled House, Senate and Executive bodies- is meant to create tension and bring out racism where it was never in play before.
Obama Speech Police have been on the attack to silence the President’s critics as of late. The Official White House Blog asked supporters on Wednesday to ‘flag’ chain e-mails and online videos ‘claiming to uncover the truth’ about Obama’s Health Care agenda.
The posting essentially asked for an assault on dissenters and legitimate
opposition in the name of alleged ‘disinformation.’
Only days later, Press Secretary Gibbs used Rush Limbaugh as an example to say
that anyone comparing the Democratic Party’s agenda to that of the Nazi’s was on ‘thin ice’ and should be wary of using such terms.
Such a comparison may well be justified, depending upon the context, and is being used to intimidate free speech critical of the President and his policies.
At the same time, the political group ‘Health Care for America Now,’ which counts the President and Vice President among its supporters, has ‘instructed Democrats to confiscate signs and leaflets brought to Obamacare events by ‘rightwing extremists,’ that is to say Americans opposed to totalitarian health care,’ as Kurt Nimmo reported Friday.
Also on Friday, Kenneth Gladney, a self-identified independent-conservative, was hospitalized after being beaten by a group of union thugs who didn’t like his criticizing the Health Care agenda.
Groups have been mobilizing everywhere in opposition to the pending Health Care legislation, and have been uniformly slandered and demonized by the media, and blocked by various pro-Health Care groups throughout the country.
This video, entitled ‘Obama JOKER $1000 Video Contest’ was copied off of ‘TheAlexJonesChannel’ shortly before it was censored on claims of ‘racism.’ Get this version and make more copies while you still can.
These recent attempts at quashing free speech are reminiscent of the Missouri Truth Squads during the 2008 campaign who —
while hypocritically carrying out a slanted & untrue politicized message-
vowed to shut down and have arrested anyone critical of Obama who is ‘not telling the truth’ via Missouri ethics laws.
The actual attempt to censor Alex Jones and his message will surely fail, as many dedicated fellow patriots have already taken to duplicating not only the video itself (as posted above), but to duplicating the viral spreading of the message on the streets and everywhere online.
For instance, here is the first of surely many hundreds of videos of
individuals handing out the ‘JOKER’ Obama poster in San Antonio:
Ok, so here are my thoughts on this.
First, Alex Jones is a certifiable whack job lunatic who believes that 9-11 was a hoax perpetrated on the American people by their government. He is waaaaay out there. Anything I say here in NO WAY should be taken as support for the whack job Jones. With that being said, here are my other thoughts, as sent to Jacques B. Farnsworth:
I have a LOT of experience flagging videos at YouTube. I work with a group called “YouTube Smackdown” and we flag terrorist propaganda videos etc. It’s usually fairly difficult to get a video down, unless there’s blatant violence (as in actual video of someone being beheaded — and yes, they’ve been on YouTube — or something along those lines) and we have tried flagging in all sorts of ways. We have used the “race” flag reasoning that the videos incite violence against all non-muslims. I say again, it’s very difficult to get videos removed, so if this video was taken down, it’s one of two things. Either there truly WAS something in it that was flaggable, or the video offended the sensibilities of someone who has authority — be it a YouTube monitor or the White House, who’s to say which?
All that being said, Alex Jones IS a lunatic who believes that 9-11 was an inside job. It wouldn’t make sense for Obama to mess with taking his video down, because it would be far easier to prove that [Jones is] crazy and thereby render his video message as so much rubbish. But then this administration has made many a blunder, so who knows?
I do have permission to repost this – and I added the links here on my blog – they were not in my original reply to Jacques. So I set about to compile some posts around the internet regarding Obummer’s attacks on Free Speech and I was surprised by some of them — thought you might be too, so I’m posting the links. I remembered the Missouri “Truth Squads” during the campaign, and the silencing of health insurance companies by not allowing them to send anything negative about Obamacare to their clients, but I had not really paid much attention to anything else. Boy! Was I surprised. Look at all the results on Google when you type in “Obama free speech.”

Bringing relevance of the truth squads to today:
Guess I’d better start paying attention, huh?
Jawas has a very damning post up this morning –
CAIR and media’s “star witnesses” in Rifqa Bary case (Brian Smith, Tom Sanchez and Jeff Parker) facing embezzlement, mail tampering and illegal wiretapping charges
And surprise (!), the CAIR attorney in the case, Omar Tarazi, is directly complicit in their crimes and is facing criminal charges and bar sanctions as well.
Yesterday, the Orlando Sentinel published the second article in the past week disclosing alleged recorded conversations between the current Global Revolution Church officials, Brian Smith, Tom Sanchez and Jeff Parker (aka the “Judas Three”) and the former pastors of the church, Blake and Beverly Lorenz. The Judas Three have submitted affidavits through Tarazi with the Ohio court. The conversations were recorded illegally, as Florida law requires all parties being taped to be notified they are being recorded. A criminal complaint for their illegal wiretapping has already been filed with the Orlando Police Department.
Now here’s what the Columbus Dispatch and Orlando Sentinel conveniently forgot to report about their supposed “star witnesses” in the case.
Details are all at Jawas. The point is that the media, by omission, is leading people to believe one side of the story. And guess which side that is? Bunch of America-hating jerks. And they want us to trust them? They’d like to see Rifqa delivered back to her abusive family so that she can be summarily disposed of for exercising her free will and choosing a religion that happens not to be the religion of her abusive family. (Did I mention that they are abusive?)
Last time I checked, freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. I don’t recall seeing an age limit.
While I will temper my statements by saying that there is (and should be) such a thing as parent’s rights, parents who misuse those “rights” to abuse their children forfeit those rights. This is a case where PC (not calling a spade a spade — or an abusive Muslim family what they are!) LITERALLY has a possibility of killing someone.

That’s rolling-on-the-floor-laughing-out-loud-peeing-in-my-pants-and-scaring-the-dog for the uninitiated. I literally laughed out loud when I read this post at Internet-Haganah…
The guy on the right failed to kill the Saudi minister…
…with a bomb stuck up his ass.
The guy on the left is less of a man than he used to be after attempting to explode PETN strapped to his balls.
The image was found on the al-Qimmah forum associated with Somali al-Qaida franchise al-Shabaab. If they achieve nothing else, al-Qaida has given Freudian theories of psychosexual development a new lease on life…
Lots more good stuff at the source.
