Watching Matt Lauer interview Jim (Sheldon Cooper) Parsons about his role on Broadway playing God. Matt giggles that some might not like him playing God, and Parsons replies “What can I say… haters gonna hate”. They both chuckle and continue chatting.
Gee. No mention he might “incite violence” by Shiite Baptists? So if some Catholic objects, THEY are the “haters”, not the one that offended them? Watched the news lately?
Similarly, in a glowing review of Broadway hit “Book of Mormon”, the NYT says it’s “… blasphemous, scurrilous and more foul-mouthed than David Mamet on a blue streak. But trust me when I tell you that its heart is as pure as that of a Rodgers and Hammerstein show.”
Wait a sec. It’s “blasphemous“? Oh my. Aren’t you worried it’ll CAUSE violence?
The same New York Times is all over Pam Geller for her blatant and intentional “disrespect” of Islam… and the AP News crew is openly amazed she “has no regrets”.
Yeah, she’s just a troublemaker isn’t she? How DARE she think she can mock a religion? Right?
I’m NOT suggesting the self-crowned “elite” must temper their antics to avoid offending religions. The 1st amendment says they CAN. I don’t have to like it. I can change the channel, read a different paper, even boycott their sponsors… but I cannot MAKE them “respect” my religion, and I for sure cannot threaten violence.
Just trying to figure out how they can’t see the blatant hypocrisy of granting Islam a preferred status.
If the media didn’t have double-standards… they’d have none at all.
Always interesting to see the way various media view the news of the same day. Below find the discussion of yesterday’s FOX News hookup between Pam Geller and Imam* Anjem Choudary on Sean Hannity’s show. *Note: Imam is an Arabic term of endearment which means “batshit crazy”
Hey… I call ’em as I see ’em. I should have my own news channel soon.
The left (including the Charlie Hebdo crew) is insulted we’d compare what Pamela Geller did to Charlie Hebdo. They want us to know those were TOTALLY different.
– Charlie Hebdo drew “the prophet” as religious SATIRE.
– Geller did it to MOCK, RIDICULE and DERIDE a religion!
Which conclusively proves someone needs a dictionary.
If I tell you MY religion prohibits profanity, therefore *I* won’t cuss, that’s legit.
If I tell you MY religion prohibits profanity, therefore YOU can’t cuss AND I can murder you if you do… your response might be a few choice 4 letter words and a call to the police.
That is the issue involved in the Garland attack, only instead of profanity, it was disrespect for the “prophet of Islam”. After years of protests in the US and other western countries by Islamists seeking to tell others to follow their own religious tenets or die… Pamela Geller’s group pushed back.
In response to Geller’s push back, to jihadi wannabes drove over 1000 miles with hi-capacity rifles and body armor to shoot up a meeting in Garland TX. They wounded 1 security guard, then both got killed by a Texas traffic cop with a pistol.
Oddly, the response of the US media is not to castigate the jihadi-boys, but to hound Geller… Why did you intentionally incite violence?
Newsflash: That is EXACTLY like telling a rape survivor she incited rape by wearing that dress.
We do NOT live under Sharia law. Islam does NOT dictate what we may say or do. If you want Sharia law… move to another country. We will push back.
Meanwhile, current score:
- Texas – 2
- Murdering Islamic Dirtbags – 0
- Don’t even think about telling US citizens we must follow your rules.
- Don’t mess with Texas. We WILL shoot back.
That last part isn’t a threat. It’s a proven fact.
Welcome to Texas. It’s a Sharia Free Zone. Please set your watches forward 1400 years. Worship whatever you want, but don’t tell us to do it too. Thank you.
If you think your city is the recipient of “systemic injustice”… quit blaming the right. We didn’t have a hand. The last GOP mayor of Baltimore was elected in the 1960s. The entire city council is Democrats.
So long as urban blacks can be relied upon to vote Democrat regardless of what they do (or don’t do), you cannot expect anything but the silly paternalistic government you’ve had all your lives.
Your mayor is black, your people in DC are black, your entire system is run by Dems. How’s that working? Quit expecting government to fix your life. It will not happen.
Neither will it come by looting liquor stores or burning down a pharmacy.
Change will happen when you get off your butt, pull up your pants, take responsibility for your own future, and quit acting like zoo animals dependent on your keepers to feed you.
Change is ready to happen. It will become effective when YOU are.
— Hank Johnson solemnly asked pentagon brass if they were worried about Guam capsizing.
— Nancy Pelosi famously stated we must pass the bill to find out what is in it.
— Diana DeGette indicated existing gun mags will become useless once the bullets are fired.
— Al Gore crisscrosses the nation in a private jet to lecture others about their carbon footprint.
— John Kerry recently tried to gloss over a US diplomatic gaffe by flying James Taylor to France to sing “you’ve got a friend”.
— Hillary (What difference does it make) Clinton’s great achievement as Sec of State is supposedly the “re-set” with Russia. That’s working out swimmingly.
— Joe Biden said… [oh who cares… pick any quote].
— Obama would like to fine you if you don’t vote. As a Senator, he skipped 324 roll call votes, & often voted “present” if he was there.
But Dems want you to know in their opinion… Ted Cruz is not smart.
Before the election in November, Obama stated that even though HE was not on the ballot, every one of his programs WAS.
Then the election results went for the GOP in overwhelming numbers.
- The GOP retained the House, gaining a historic lead.
- They took the senate.
- Governor’s races went overwhelmingly against democrats.
- State legislature composition followed the same trend.
In Texas, where Obama campaign veteran Jeremy Bird was dispatched to “Turn Texas Blue!”… Dems lost EVERY statewide election. Not most… ALL. And Wendy Davis, the reason the Dems thought they had a prayer, lost in historic fashion. Almost 2:1.
So after getting beat like a rented mule… Obama announced he “heard the voters”, but ALSO those who did NOT vote. [Huh?!]
As I do not own a crystal ball myself, I can neither confirm nor deny his assumption, but there are reasons to believe that Obama fans include the physically and intellectually lazy.
In keeping with his contention he is the king of those too stupid to take part in the electoral process voluntarily, Obama is floating the proposition that voting be “mandatory”.
You know, cause nothing says “land of the free” like government telling you what to do.
Granted, given the result of the November election, he hasnt a snowball’s chance in hell of getting legislation to make America subject to the whims of our laziest constituents… But then the boy king does like to write presidential fiats to try to circumvent the legislature. If he tries this one he’d probably learn the meaning of “smackdown” from the Supreme Court.
Hard to believe even HE is that dumb.
Then again, every time I think he cant get lower, he grabs a shovel.
