Update II: In the United States of America, we don’t apologize for our freedom of speech. Ever. For some however we are not only supposed to surrender our freedom of speech but also to surrender our voices and parrot their ideology. Two words come to mind in response to Egypt’s Islamist president telling embassy to take legal action in U.S. against makers of Mohammed film.
Here in America we won’t put on the Iron Veil willingly. Mitt Romney must provide a coherent narrative to Americans that starts off with the Obama snub of Netanyahu and the Cairo speech of 2009.
C’mon Romney fight Big Media, that’s your real enemy. You won’t beat Obama without beating on Big Media.
Update: As we write below, Big Media is out to protect Barack Obama now more than ever. An attack on American soil just as with Jimmy Carter but Big Media sees the job as “attack Mitt, protect Barack”. There now appears to be proof of our contention via an surprise audio: Press caught on open mic coordinating Egypt/Libya questions for Romney? When Big Media coordinates on Obama questions it is about how the JournoListers can protect Obama.
C’mon Mitt, you got to strike back against Big Media and Obama as we suggested yesterday and below.
Paul Ryan has given a good statement which is on the right path of what we suggest. We’ll put the video up as soon as it is available.
Muslim murderers kill American diplomats. American Big Media immediately condemns the free speech which is the birthright of American citizens.
These same Big Media pigs once praised Barack Obama as the man that would raise respect for America among Muslim men “not a notch, but a logarithm“.
Other Big Media pigs that fell in love with the disgusting “Arab Spring” put their efforts in protecting the failure that is Barack Obama and attacked Mitt Romney for introducing rationality into the discussion.
That’s all true. Andrew Sullivan thought “Obama’s face” should be praised and that Muslim men would regard that ugly puss in the same way Russian peasants once worshiped icons of the Virgin. Mike Barnicle and Donny Deutsch want Americans deprived of free speech rights and prosecuted for watching this film:
The Wall Street Journal reported on what the film is about and what happened when Muslim savages attacked the American embassy:
“The film’s 52-year-old writer, director and producer, Sam Bacile, said that he wanted to showcase his view of Islam as a hateful religion. “Islam is a cancer,” he said in a telephone interview from his home. “The movie is a political movie. It’s not a religious movie.” [snip]
The flashpoint appeared to be the film about the Prophet Muhammad, portions of which in recent days have been circulating on the Internet. Contravening the Islamic prohibition of portraying the prophet, clips from the film show him not only as flesh and blood—but as a homosexual son of undetermined patrimony, who rises to advocate child slavery and extramarital sex, for himself, in the name of religion. [snip]
While protesters in Cairo said they understood American laws on free expression, they saw them as secondary to their religious practice. “Freedom of belief is more important than freedom of expression,” said Ashraf Ibrahim, 34, who was at Tuesday’s protest.[snip]
Though the film was the focus of demonstrators’ outrage, the spirited protest amounted to more of a general outpouring of grievances against U.S. policy in the Islamic world. Several signs and chants decried the U.S.-led invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as American support for Israel.
Many recalled the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that killed thousands of U.S. citizens 11 years earlier.
“Obama! Obama! We are all Osama!” went one chant, referring to Osama bin Laden, the late head of Al Qaeda, the militant Islamist organization widely believed to be responsible for the 9/11 attacks.”
None of the above should surprise anyone and none of the above issues is unknown to Americans. The producers of the film claim it is a “political film” and Americans know the Citizens United Supreme Court decision and what happens in a free society when there are attempts to shut down political expression. Ain’t gonna happen here Muslim savages and opponents of free speech (which we are indulging in today even though we recognize that there are good and bad people in all groups).
The Muslim savages want Muhammad exempt from a modernity that commonly depicts religious figures without having members of that faith kill others and destroy property. ‘Mo-ham-mud’s biography is also subject to scrutiny – and ridicule – and we will spell that name any damn way we please.
To the Muslim savages, “freedom of expression” which they understand quite well, is subservient to “freedom of belief”. In America you can worship goats or rubber ducks and we have the right to laugh at you. Islam is not and should not be exempt from ridicule or examination no matter how cruel or vicious.
But freedom of expression is out of fashion with Big Media these days. Today, after our exhortations to Mitt Romney yesterday on several matters related to the Muslim savage attack on American embassies and Obama’s snub of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, we heard from Mitt Romney a reasonable statement on the embassy killings.
Big Media immediately rushed to protect Barack Obama. Mark Halperin, a commentor along with Barnicle and Deutsch on MSNBC put the burden and the blame on Mitt Romney:
“Unless the Romney campaign has gamed this crisis out in some manner completely invisible to the Gang of 500, his doubling down on criticism of the President for the statement coming out of Cairo is likely to be seen as one of the most craven and ill-advised tactical moves in this entire campaign.”
Big Media or as Halperin calls his fellow pigs “the Gang of 500” will attempt to portray Romney’s tepid statement as “one of the most craven and ill-advised tactical moves in this entire campaign”. Romney should take on Barack Obama and his Big Media campaign affiliates full on.
We are sure, and we are not relying on polls although we have been ever so on target with our polling analysis (told ya so about that bounce and “wait until after Wednesday”), that Americans will support Mitt Romney on these myriad issues. It’s why we have repeatedly called for Romney to go to Florida and speak out as loudly as possible on the Obama snub of Netanyahu and on the subsequent savage attacks on American embassies.
Conservative Daniel Foster of National Review, like Mark Halperin, thinks Romney has a problem too. But that’s because Daniel Foster (and Politico and the rest of Big Media) have the timeline all wrong. What’s missing in their analysis?:
“But he’s been screwed by the timing.
If I’ve got it straight, here’s the actual order of events: 1) U.S. diplomats in Cairo shamefully apologize more or less preemptively for private U.S. citizens exercising their First Amendment rights in a way that “hurts the religious feelings” of Muslims. 2) “Protests” intensify into attacks on embassy in Cairo and consulate in Benghazi. 3) Romney calls Cairo embassy response disgraceful. 4) Reports of murders of Americans in Benghazi confirmed. 5) Obama administration disavows Cairo embassy line. 6) Obama campaign flack LaBolt shames Romney for politicizing murders.
But the instant narrative from the media is that Romney “jumped the gun,” that he has used the death of Americans as a campaign prop and broken the sacred rule that “politics stops at the water’s edge.” Except that’s not what happened at all. Cairo jumped the gun on its controllers in Washington, and by the time Cairo’s disgraceful response filtered out into the media ether it was being rendered more disgraceful still by the violent turn the protests took, and Romney rightly condemned it as disgraceful. The Obama administration then caught up to Romney and muzzled Cairo. So how is Romney the one with the bad messaging here?”
Somehow the Obama snub of Netanyahu got left out of yesterday’s order of events. If Romney screwed up it is in not following our advice and speaking up about the Obama snub of Netanyahu as the primary problem. The embassy killings are a symptom of Obama weakness and signals to Muslim savages that they will win if they fight against American freedom.
Again, “The embassy killings are a symptom of Obama weakness and signals to Muslim savages that they will win if they fight against American freedom.” Got that Mitt?
Mitt Romney has to declare that Obama is the problem. Obama bowing and scraping, in between apologies, is the problem. It sends a message of weakness. Of course Obama is weak so the message is apropos. Mitt Romney has to denounce Obama’s pusillanimous postures and demand that Obama be thrown out of office because Obama will get us killed.
We recently discussed George W. Bush’s message in 2004. It was simple: “Bush will keep you safe, John Kerry will get you killed.” Mitt Romney better appropriate that message before Obama gets his slimy hands on it.
Obama wants to run a Bush 2004 campaign with a weak incumbent eventually winning. Mitt Romney has to block that and use the Bush message: “Mitt Romney will keep you safe, Barack Obama will get you killed.”
Mitt Romney will not win the vote in academia, Big Media, Mosques or Muslim countries. Academics are already declaring that the producers of a film should be prosecuted and their free speech rights annulled, Constitution be damned. Supposed American ally, President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan is already on the job stirring up violence from savages.
Mitt Romney has the capacity to win this foreign policy argument, place the blame where it belongs – on weak Barack Obama – and garner the votes of the majority of Americans. Today Mitt Romney tried but he left out the key component – the Obama snub of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Impromptu asides are insufficient and will not work.
It’s not only Obama’s snub of Netanyahu. Barack Obama’s Cairo speech sent the signal to Muslim savages that Obama, either due to weakness or sympathy, would protect them. Obama at Cairo sent the signal that lit yesterday’s fires.
The Obama policy of appeasement is what Mitt Romney must attack. Romney has to remind Americans of Barack Obama’s weakness: It’s the surrender to the Iranian mullahs as the Iranian people rose up. It the “without preconditions” Obama destruction of America. It’s the corrupt bowing to the corrupt. It will get us killed and Mitt Romney has to make that clear.
It is clear that these attacks were staged and planned for September 11. the embassy is American soil and the terrorists attacked America once again on September 11. Mitt Romney must put the blame squarely on the Muslim savages that attacked American embassies and on Barack Obama’s policy of snubbing Israel and appeasement of savagery.
Mitt Romney tried today but Big Media is out to protect Obama. Romney must understand that he will not beat the Big Media filter he will have to overcome it. Florida voters will hear Mitt Romney if Romney speaks clearly and without fear. Remind the voters of “Jerusalem” at the DNC and the boos that came from the majority of Obama delegates.
Sorry Mitt. Saying Obama is sending “mixed signals” is not going to cut it. Borrow from Bush “Obama will get us all killed, I’ll keep Americans safe.” That has to be your foreign policy message.
