MSNBC host: Hey, let’s prosecute Jones as accessory to ambassador’s murder

posted at 12:41 pm on September 12, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Why stop there? Let’s round up the journalists who initially reported on Occupy and charge them with accessory to rape. Oh, wait, we have freedom of speech in this country? Silly us:

MIKE BARNICLE: Given this supposed minister’s role in last year’s riots in Afghanistan, where people died, and given his apparent or his alleged role in this film, where, not yet nailed down, but at least one American, perhaps the American ambassador is dead, it might be time for the Department of Justice to start viewing his role as an accessory before or after the fact.

DONNY DEUTSCH: I was thinking the same thing, yeah.

If you’re thinking about prosecuting someone for non-violent speech because of the violent reaction of others, then you might be an idiot.  Whatever else one thinks of Jones, he has the right to oppose Islam and to make films that take a critical look at Mohammed.  Our freedom of speech — and in this case, of religious practice through comparative criticism — does not get trumped by rioting mobs on the other side of the globe.  It’s perfectly fine for people to criticize Jones and his efforts — that’s also free speech — but calling for his prosecution for his speech and religious practice defies everything for which the First Amendment stands.

One might think that journalists would know this better than anyone else … but apparently not, at least not the journalists on MSNBC.

Update: Maybe they should take some lessons in journalism from Timothy Dalrymple, because it’s not clear that Jones has anything to do with the film anyway:

Somehow the name of Terry Jones, the once-obscure fundamentalist Floridian “pastor” who made headlines around the world with his determination to burn copies of the Koran, gets mixed into this.  The curious thing?  It’s not exactly clear that Terry Jones had anything to do with it.   The Coptic blogger, Sadek, had recently met Terry Jones and joined him in an anti-Islamic protest in Washington in June.  Beyond that, it’s unclear whether Jones knew of the film or intended to promote it, until now.

The New York Times seems intent to weave Terry Jones’ name throughout the story, but it reports:

Reached by telephone in Florida, a representative of Mr. Jones seemed unaware of the film, but hours later the pastor sent The Lede a statement by e-mail in which he complained of the attack on the embassy in Cairo and announced plans to screen the trailer for the film on Tuesday night. He said that it “reveals in a satirical fashion the life of Muhammad.”

Clearly Jones had nothing to do with the production of the film.  The Times describes him as an “ally” of Sadek, although it may be the case they only just met in July.  There’s also no evidence that Jones had any intention of screening the film until it exploded.

But don’t let that stand in the way of calls for a blasphemy trial for Jones.

Perhaps we should then prosecute everyone involved with the Newsweek cover and story about Korans being flushed (which was a load of mule fritters) that caused riots, violence, arson, property destruction, and death. Would MSNBC be good with that?

Given your history of anti-Christian rants it’s pretty clear which category you fall into. That’s why we don’t believe you when you call Pastor Jones a hero. Nobody as avidly anti-religion as you would ever call a Christian pastor a hero.

Trafalgar on September 12, 2012 at 2:30 PM

I think this means that all of militant Islam’s future attacks will simply claim this video is at fault and they will have the Democrat media on their side.

If the Muslims want to really get the media mad at the film maker, they would attack MSNBC or other Democrat media news centers. That would give the left more moral authority to push the jihadi cause. If the Muslims attack a non-liberal target after this, their liberal media allies will be blamed as enablers and the jihadis will have spoiled the tactic. Much the same way the 9/11 jihadis forever spoiled the benefit hijackers enjoyed of passengers sitting still during hijackings.

Buddahpundit on September 12, 2012 at 2:31 PM

it just occured to me, if MSNBC is talking about bringing in DoJ to prosecute people as accessories to murder, can we expect them to call for a Special Prosecutor to prosecute people in the DoJ as accessories to murder?

Brian Terry was murdered. The people who provided the guns to his killers are clearly accessories.

Axe on September 12, 2012 at 2:46 PM

Funny, the mob was chanting “We are all Osamas, Obama.” Not one syllable about Terry Jones or the movie. I leave it to that great American poet-laureate, Sarah Louise Heath Palin:

Sarah Palin · 3,476,304 like this
14 hours ago ·
Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy?

It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.

My question is directed to the president:

“Mr. President, please explain to the American people why the Commander-in-Chief is in Las Vegas?”

“I condemn the action of the individual in the United States who burned a copy of the Holy Qur’an. That action was hateful. It was intolerant, and it was extremely disrespectful. I condemn the actions of a small number of individuals who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Qur’an.”

Mohammed was already in an episode. Some Super Friends version with religious figures.

Then Matt and Trey received death threats when they tried to show him again, and Comedy Central refused to air the clip of Mohammed instead, censoring it. It was a two-parter episode and was even featured here.

Step 1: Convince Christians to go on mass slaughters of people who offend them, or anyone else who might just be easier to find than the real people who offended them. Killing someone by proxy is apparently sufficient.

Step 2: Watch the liberals fall all over themselves making certain that we prosecute and jail anyone who offends any Christian anywhere at any time.

Rinse/Repeat for obese people, smokers, and anyone else who feels marginalized.

We’ll have equality eventually, but we’ll end up requiting mass slaughters from hundreds of different factions demanding THEIR special rights first.

Amazing that the liberals are pushing so hard for special right for psychopathic mass murderers. When they called President Bush a psychopathic murderer were they actually praising President Bush?

I’m confused… I guess I need to go kill some people and see how this works out.

If you’re looking for an accessory to the murder of the 4 US embassy staffers look no further than the White House-Obama (or maybe Obama and Valerie Jarrett) plus one of the four murder victims-Ambassador Stevens himself.

Stevens was a big proponent of invading a hitherto “unbroken” Libya. Obama (or his adviser) listened to Stevens and “broke” the country and the resultant religious militant nutcases were cast loose to create mayhem and havoc.
