    [The toadies at the Times proclaiming their never ending fealty to the Kenyan poseur who would destroy America by putting out another article justifying the Liberal premise of "Freedom of speech for me, but not for thee" Ie.. questioning Susan Rice's qualifications for the job of Secretary of State after she deliberately lied to the American people is somehow 'Racist' but labeling Condi Rice the George W Bush "House Niggah" is not.]

    "Liberal support for free speech has been waning for a long time, and at present it seems to be just about extinct. The latest evidence is a story in today’s New York Times about Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man who made the video that was falsely blamed for the Benghazi attack, and has languished in jail for the last two months as a result. One might think that the Times would regard jailing a man for exercising his First Amendment rights as an outrage requiring daily denunciations, but no–the tone of the article, by Serge Kovaleski and Brooks Barnes, suggests that Nakoula deserved what he got.

    Start with the article’s title: “From Man Who Insulted Muhammad, No Regret.” The Times finds it remarkable that Nakoula isn’t penitent:

    Fuming for two months in a jail cell here, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has had plenty of time to reconsider the wisdom of making “Innocence of Muslims,” his crude YouTube movie trailer depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a bloodthirsty, philandering thug.

    So is America now a country where we imprison people so they can rethink the wisdom of making a video with the wrong political point of view? Apparently the Times thinks so; there is strong evidence that Barack Obama does, too."
