Via Ace: We've already seen the lengths to which this clownish administration will go to snoop on people; now a US attorney suggests that anti-Muslim comments on social media might be a federal crime:
[US attorney Bill] Killian referred to a Facebook posting made by Coffee County Commissioner Barry West that showed a picture of a man pointing a double-barreled shotgun at a camera lens with the caption saying, “How to Wink at a Muslim.”
Killian said he and Moore had discussed the issue.
“If a Muslim had posted ‘How to Wink at a Christian,’ could you imagine what would have happened?” he said. “We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected.”
Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.
Except that, aside from incredibly bad taste (which isn't a crime), what [Muslim] civil rights were violated in that case? Is this yet another instance of Boss Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform" America -- here being an example of how the First Amendment will be curtailed further by an expansion of "hate speech" statutes? Hell, we've already seen what happened to that sap who made the YouTube vid which Boss O., Hillary, Susan Rice and others blamed for Benghazi: He was arrested ... and is still in the clink.Posted by Hube at May 31, 2013 07:12 PM | TrackBack
