Why does Islam always get a free pass? Unlike what that moronic BecauseIKnow, who doesn't know anything, lied about, Judaism and Christianity have been made fun of in films, in the past, without their followers going crazy. Why is Islam immune to freedom of speech and expression?
I don't understand why the White House even asked them to pull it. If Bush had asked them to pull a film he didn't like everyone would be screaming. When Obama does it half the population accepts it because they are racist and don't want anyone to know.
Muslims don't know what "democracy" means.
Where are the ACLU hypocrites on this? Nowhere to be found.
i think perhaps a lot of the "ACLU hypocrites" were probably in synagogue.
i kind of think it is very disengenuous for some one from a jewish culture to try to defend free speech anyway. while i do not thonk anyone can forsake the right of free speech, i think jewish people have done more to curtail and have free speech outlawed than any other group in recent memory, particularly western european and american jews.
again...it depends upon whose ox is being gored.
Like clockwork, the Jew hating Nazi slime always turns the topic to those evil Joooos.
Jews have been at forefront of civil rights and free speech, and in fact marched side by side with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. You fucking ignoramus.
Jews lent legal expertise, financial support and even philosophical advice. Much of what was accomplished could not have happened without Jewish support. Several prominent Jews including Henry Moscowitz helped to found the N.A.A.C.P. alongside W.E.B. DuBois. Several sources claim that the overwhelming majority of Jews in America were actively or tacitly involved in Civil Rights. A Jewish philanthropist, Julius Rosenwald built many primary and secondary schools and colleges for Blacks.
- It is estimated that at one time 40% of rural Blacks were learning at Rosenwald schools.
The story of Black-Jewish relations in the United States is a long and complex one.... Jews were among those who worked to establish the NAACP in 1909. African-American newspapers were among the first in the U.S. to denounce Nazism.... FROM SWASTIKA TO JIM CROW creates hope and reminds us of a time in U.S. history when the two communities came together.
Jewish involvement in the civil rights struggle also went deep. It is estimated that thousands of Jewish students made their way to the Sough during the 1960s, joining efforts being coordinated by a variety of organizations to arrange sit-ins and marches to desegregate transportation and schools and to register voters. One-third to one-half of the Freedom Riders in the summer of 1961 were Jewish and a similar percentage of Jews took part in the Mississippi Freedom Summer in 1964 (during which Goodman, Scherner, and Chaney were murdered). Harder to measure, but clearly affecting thousands of more Jews growing up in this era, was the widespread sympathy Jews felt for the civil rights struggle. Rabbis preached about civil rights from their pulpits. Jewish periodicals carried articles about the justice of the cause. Many of the activists interviewed for this book trace their earliest feelings for social justice to hearing their parents talk about Martin Luther King Jr., and the movement for civil rights as a moral calling. In 1963, Rabbi Joachim Prinz, the president of the American Jewish Congress and a refugee from Nazi Germany, was one of the speakers who addressed 250,000 people at the March on Washington. It was the same stage from which, minutes later, Martin Luther King Jr. would deliver his historic "I Have A Dream" speech. To the extent that one of the great accomplishments of the civil rights movement was making de facto discrimination illegal, the organized Jewish community threw all of its political muscle behind the passage of the era's two most important pieces of civil rights legislation- the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Isn't that nice... The Obama administration is trying to force a business to curtail its Constitutional Right to free speech... What's next? I can only imagine...
that was then and this is now.
today's jews are trying to curtail anti-israel speech and protest on american campuses, outrageously branding it as hate speech, and i cannot begin to tell you how many jewish posters have come out in support of so called holocaust denial laws.
free speech is free speech.
