The 'tolerance' of Islam? ADDENDUM: I'll take FREE SPEECH!

How moderate...

TruthRevolt: On Fox News last night, Sean Hannity hosted what basically amounted to a verbal holy war between Islamic Imam Anjem Choudary and Pamela Geller. Choudary repeatedly stated that Geller knew the "consequences" for her actions, and that the consequences for her actions are death. He says that she isn't even good enough to be called a pig. He said America was the real murderer, that all will come under sharia law, that any who insult the prophet should receive "capital punishment."

This is a good time to remind our readers that people who talk about sharia in America are called conspiracy theorists, that Pamela Geller, who has been marked for death by Islam over cartoons, is the one being called "hateful" by our media, and that the official position of Smart People is that only a tiny few Muslims are terrorists and murderers.

As far as we know, Anjem Choudary isn't a terrorist. Using the standard the media and the President use, he would not be counted in the "less than one percent" of Muslims who commit acts of terror or join ISIS or kidnap girls in Africa. Yet here he is on a major news outlet telling the world, as he often does, that he believes the exact same thing as the terrorists.

Nobody is a terrorist until they are. But it is clear that support for the murder of cartoonists extends beyond just the murderers themselves. Believing that those who insult Mohammed should be put to death does not mean you are in some exclusive terrorist-only club, or that you are a member of ISIS. It is not uncommon. It is a widely shared conviction. And what's more, it's put into practice by people who aren't counted in that "one percent" we're supposed to find insignificant.
How sinister this guy's smirks are during an interview when his Ayatollah has said, "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam." No kidding!

Also, an excellent monologue from Megyn Kelly last night encapsulates where all Americans should be standing in solidarity (but for the party partisanship and lack of principle & common sense)...
TRS: Megyn Kelly opened her show tonight hitting back at the critics who have been blaming Pamela Geller for being too provocative with her drawing Muhammad event. Kelly says if drawing Muhammad at a private function is too provocative, then the terrorists are winning.

Drawing out the terrorists in our midst

ADDENDUM: Bill Whittle adds even broader (and most EXCELLENT) perspective...
TRS: In today’s version of Afterburner, Bill Whittle talks about the Garland terrorist attack and how the Islamo-Nazis didn’t just attack Pamela Geller and her drawing event, but they attacked all of us. And he takes on the folks who says ‘I believe in free speech, but…’.

Speech is either free or it isn't! The attack in Texas wasn't against Conservatives--it was against every American. Check out this important Afterburner to find out why Bill says you're DEAD wrong if you think the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo or attendees at the free speech event in Texas had it coming to them for being too "provocative" by drawing Mohammed.
