    "Blasphemy, we have come to learn, is taken quite seriously by Muslims. Free speech, however, is taken quite seriously by Americans. It would have been bracing for the president to go on Pakistani television, and to sit for interviews with Egyptian and Tunisian journalists, and stand up for a core American principle. Imagine a speech in which Obama described the mechanics of free speech and the undergirding philosophy that protects it. He could have spoken about the great gifts free speech bestows on a society. He could have spoken about how he himself is attacked mercilessly by a free press, yet he still values the principles that allow him to be attacked. He could have described how Christianity is often the target of attack, yet survives and thrives in the U.S."

    Can you imagine Reagan apologizing for freedom of speech to Middle East extremists?

    You know, if you're too stupid to understand, there's really no point in explaining it.

    I suggest you read the article I linked.

    I don't think from the perspective of a militant freeper, please try to be more understanding.

    You mean you are illiterate?

    Ok. From the link. For people who can and do read:

    "But a bold, uncompromising and guilt-free defense of free speech might have given comfort to the many Muslims, religious and secular alike, who want to lead their lives free of the fear of fundamentalist tyranny, and who would prefer the U.S. not attempt to reason with the mob. "

    Instead Obama apologizes for free speech a core of our constitution and he went on the view, and he is eye candy, and he blames a video that wasn't even really to blame, while bragging about killing the islam idol bin laden, who
    Is the real reason for the killing of our ambassador.

    Obamination should have said a random person in our country doesn't speak for everyone, but we don't make his words illegal because of our protective laws.

    Also, he should have told the muslim world the US has sacrificed blood and treasure protecting muslims in the middle east, Europe, Africa and Asia going back to World War II and that we aren't the problem of the muslim world.
