The Associated Press has determined that the two idiots responsible for the vile anti-Islamic video that has sparked outrage and death and violence in the Middle East are Nakoula Nakoula of California and Reverend Terry Jones of Florida. Mr. Nakoula a failed and flawed individual with a criminal record actually made this horrific movie. Reverend Jones is promoting the video. You may recognize Reverend Jones as the charming individual who infamously burned a Koran sparking outrage and death and violence in Afghanistan about a year ago.
Mitt Romney felt compelled to defend this indefensible conduct in the name of free speech. But Supreme Court Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes correctly stated that freedom of speech does not include the right to shout “Fire” in a theater.
The release of the Nakoula video on the internet is the 21st century version of shouting fire in a theater. Nakoula and Jones, especially Jones, knows and wanted the outrage, death and violence that ensued. For that they should be ashamed. But of course, they are not.
For trying to score political points during such a tragedy Mitt Romney should be ashamed. But of course, he is not.
Have a great weekend!
