    Anthea Butler is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The title of her most recent book, The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Angels Are Galvanizing the Religious Right, gives you a pretty good idea of where she stands politically.

    This morning, she strongly implied that Sam Bacile is responsible for yesterday’s embassy attacks and, as a result, should be tossed into jail.

    Bacile is an Israeli filmmaker who lives in California and has gone into hiding. He made the crappy movie that is being used as a pretext to justify the violence that erupted in Egypt and Libya yesterday.

    But is making a movie that makes Muslims angry a crime? Butler appears to think so.

    Of course, like any academic, Butler purports to support free speech rights:

    @AntheaButler And yes, I know we have First Amendment rights,but if you don't understand the Religion you hate, STFU about it. Yes, I am ticked off.—

    But it is clear that she gets most excited when arguing that those rights are highly circumscribed:

    @AntheaButler @blmoyer And people do to jail for speech. First Amendment doesn't cover EVERYTHING a PERSON says.—

    12 Sep 12 @AntheaButler I am all for free speech, but you better damn well understand that actions have consequences, and what you mock is another persons belief.—

    A pro-al Qaeda group responsible for a previous armed assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi is the chief suspect in Tuesday's attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya, sources tracking militant Islamist groups in eastern Libya say.

    They also note that the attack immediately followed a call from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri for revenge for the death in June of a senior Libyan member of the terror group Abu Yahya al-Libi.

    The group suspected to be behind the assault -- the Imprisoned Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades -- first surfaced in May, when it claimed responsibility for an attack on the International Red Cross office in Benghazi. The following month the group claimed responsibility for detonating an explosive device outside the U.S. Consulate, and later released a video of that attack.

    Seems the general consensus according to idiots is that it's okay to arrest anyone who commits the henious crime of insulting Muslims. When the Muslims respond by killing people, the idiots say they are justified.

    These aren't extremists committing these murders, they are typical of the Muslim Brotherhood and their ilk. Obama supported the Arab Spring, despite the MB telling everyone to prepare for a war with Israel. Obama treats the MB like a friendly ally, rather than the terrorists they are. And he treats Israel like our enemy instead the ally that they are. I thought Obama was president of the U.S., not the middle east.

    Now Obama refuses to meet with the Israel Prime Minister and instead books a gig on Letterman's show. Scheduling conflicts, my ass.

    I'm still trying to figure out who the heck the film maker is. It shouldn't matter but obviously it does to a lot of libs who want this person strung up by the balls.

    Bacile seems to be a pseudonym. But you have everyone and their mother reporting that it's Terry Jones, Coptic Christians and so on.

    This is nuts. Peoples lives could be in danger with wrong reporting.

    Here's Goldberg:

    As part of my search for more information about Sam Bacile, the alleged producer of the now-infamous anti-Muhammad film trailer "The Innocence of Muslims," I just called a man named Steve Klein -- a self-described militant Christian activist in Riverside, California (whose actual business, he said, is in selling "hard-to-place home insurance"), who has been described in multiple media accounts as a consultant to the film.

    Klein told me that Bacile, the producer of the film, is not Israeli, and most likely not Jewish, as has been reported, and that the name is, in fact, a pseudonym. He said he did not know "Bacile"'s real name. He said Bacile contacted him because he leads anti-Islam protests outside of mosques and schools, and because, he said, he is a Vietnam veteran and an expert on uncovering al Qaeda cells in California. "After 9/11 I went out to look for terror cells in California and found them, piece of cake. Sam found out about me. The Middle East Christian and Jewish communities trust me."

    Butler cannot give any reasons why Freedom of Speech doesn't cover mocking someone's belief. Just where has she been all her life? It sounds like she's "ticked off" pretty easily. Does she feel that she can go act on her anger?
