The Scary Thing Isn't That Fundamentalist Muslims Are Calling For the Filmmaker's Death. The Scary Thing Is That American Liberals Are, Too.

Althouse: "Let's not be so quick to assume the man with the "Shut Up America" sign [a protester outside an embassy] is thoroughly alien. The threats to free speech lie within. They always have."

Yup:

“Insallah [God willing], we will kill him,” one Facebook user, Shayan Khan, wrote from Karachi, Pakistan.

Some YouTube users envisioned particularly imaginative demises for Nakoula in the comments section of a video related to his detention.

“I wanna torture him with a shot [to] his knee cap, then blow his eyes with [a] knife, take a chain saw and cut his penis, then a hot rod would be given to his ass, then kill him until he is hanged till death,” funkyfolk1110 wrote. “Kill this bastard,” said another user.

On Twitter, a user named Yayan E. Putra posted, “Fuck Nakoula Basseley, i want to kill you!!!” The message starkly contrasted with Putra’s brief Twitter profile, which stated simply, “A smile is the little thing that can make life easier.”

“Someone please kill him,” agreed Nelson Davis, a retired market researcher living in New York, who earlier on Sunday invited his Twitter followers to “Choose your free Obama sticker!”

The man's crime? Using the right of free speech. But the actual offense is complicating Obama's political campaign.

And for that, of course, he should be killed. (Um, obviously I am being bitterly sarcastic here. I don't want a Doom demerit.)

For some reason, I suspect if I were to say something like "I wish the crazed, homicidal Tea Partiers (who haven't killed or hurt anyone) would kill these traitors to the Constitution," their attitudes about violence over free speech would change pretty damn quick.

And suddenly we'd have sympathetic stories about their plight, these poor Americans, abused by crazed extremists wishing for their deaths, put in fear for their lives by vicious extremists who don't understand that in America, dissent is patriotic.

In related news: Happy Constitution Day!

"Liberal" Bill Press: Lock These Guys Up For Blasphemy: But we'll call it something else, so we can pretend we're still "liberal."

So, I think the United States ought to identify, yeah, we oughta be going after these terrorists that carried out the attacks in Libya and we are. I think we also ought to be identifying the people who made this video and go after them with the full force of the law and lock their ass up.

That tip is from, appropriately enough, George Orwell.
