White House: Yes, we asked YouTube to consider removing that Mohammed movie

posted at 4:42 pm on September 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

The first mention of this that I saw online was in a LA Times story about the filmmaker, where it was mentioned in passing five paragraphs down. If you thought General Dempsey pressuring Terry Jones to pipe down was bad, how much worse is it to have the U.S. government leaning on one of the world’s most influential online media companies to suppress “offensive” content? Google spent nearly $4 million to lobby the feds in the second quarter of this year alone; they have strong financial incentives to comply with “requests” like this, and it’s to their credit that they refused in this case (while agreeing to block YouTube in Libya and Egypt, do note). What that means is that, at the moment, Google seems to be more strongly committed to free speech than your own government does. And I should have anticipated that two days ago in this post, when I was half-jokingly wondering about a future blasphemy exception to the First Amendment. The government doesn’t need to enact anti-blasphemy laws if it can lean on private media platforms to enact their own anti-blasphemy policies “voluntarily.” It’s a “soft power” approach to censorship, and the more cronyistic the government is with business, the more leverage it’ll have in pursuing it.

And yet, the LA Times barely thought to mention it. The only way you’re going to get the feds to stop doing this is if the media shines a big bright spotlight on whenever it happens, but that won’t happen until a Republican is back in office. Free speech is, for our concern-troll media, largely a partisan issue.

The White House has asked YouTube to review an anti-Muslim film posted to the site that has been blamed for igniting the violent protests this week in the Middle East.

Tommy Vietor, spokesman for the National Security Council, said the White House has “reached out to YouTube to call the video to their attention and ask them to review whether it violates their terms of use.”

However, the video remained on the site as of Friday afternoon, and it is posted many other places on the Internet.

Lots of stupidity in this strategy. First, as noted, getting YouTube to dump the vid will greatly reduce its visibility but won’t cause it to disappear completely. If anything, demand to see it would skyrocket. Second, by leaning on Google, the feds are actually confirming the worst suspicions of Islamist nuts that the U.S. government has some sort of control over offensive speech by U.S. citizens. The message the State Department should be pushing right now is that America doesn’t meddle with what its citizens say and therefore bears no moral culpability for cultural insults. Instead, they’re meddling. Third, per Mark Hemingway, this actually vindicates Romney’s critique of the Cairo embassy statement. Romney accused the administration of “sympathizing” with the sort of Islamist cretins who later assaulted the embassy, annnd that’s basically been proved true. Islamists were insulted, and now the White House is trying to make the insult go away.

Since the feds couldn’t get Google to bend on the clip, though, I guess it’s time for plan B: Actually imprisoning the guy responsible for the movie.

U.S. probation officials are looking into potential violations of prison release terms by a California man linked to an anti-Islam film that triggered violent protests at U.S. embassies in Muslim countries, a court spokeswoman said on Friday…

[The filmmaker,] who lives in the Los Angeles suburb of Cerritos, pleaded guilty to bank fraud in 2010 and was sentenced to 21 months in prison, to be followed by five years on supervised probation, court documents showed. Prison records show he was released in June 2011, shortly before production began on the video…

Under the written terms of his release, [the filmmaker] was forbidden to use the Internet or assume any aliases without approval of his probation officer. A senior law enforcement official in Washington indicated the probation investigation relates to whether he broke either or both of these conditions.

Violations could result in him being sent back to prison, court records show.

Newsweek also has a story about the parole-violation angle, which I recommend reading just because it’s palpable how much of a pretext it is to punish the guy for the crime of “unhelpful ” speech instead. (The last paragraph of their story sums it up.) Even if he technically violated his parole by using a computer and an alias, as far as I’m aware no one’s alleging that he used that computer and alias to commit any crimes since leaving prison. Bringing him in for that is like going after Al Capone for tax evasion: That’s not his “real” crime, but you’ll happily prosecute him for it just to impose some measure of justice on him. The filmmaker’s “real” crime is antagonizing lots of violent Islamist lunatics by blaspheming their religion, but since that’s still technically legal, maybe we can bring him in on the charge of using an alias instead.

Exit question: Since everyone understands that this guy is now marked for death, why does the media — with the help of law enforcement — insist on publishing his name and whereabouts? Finding out who’s behind the film and what his motive was in producing it is a legitimate story, but you could write that story without using his name: “The filmmaker, who’s name is being withheld for security reasons, is a Coptic Christian who’s been to prison for fraud and drug possession,” etc etc. Every clue to his identity and whereabouts makes the job of jihadist nutbags a little easier, and yet the media insists on dropping some very, very big clues.

Update: Ed DMs to say that he’s familiar with the filmmaker’s hometown and that it’s small enough that it shouldn’t be difficult to pinpoint him. So, yeah, this guy’s probably going to be killed. But I guess he had it coming, huh?

It’s simply all a drive on the part of Muslims, with their allies Obama and Hillary and our traitorous rat bastard Generals, to take away the basic constitutional rights of Americans. The most important right we have is Freedom of Speech. If we lose that, all the others will go and sooner than later. If we lose Freedom of Speech to Islam, we have surrendered on bended knee to Islam and Mohammad and OBL and America would be far better to have the old King George back.

As part of his entreaty for the passage of the Resolution 16/18, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Turkish Muslim head of the OIC, issued a veiled threat implying that the failure to act against religious “hate speech” would result in acts of Islamic terrorism. It appears that the overriding purpose of the resolution is to limit and criminalize criticism of Islam. The resolution also would place the blame for terrorist attacks on its victims for their non-compliance with Islamic doctrine, or sharia, which prohibits criticism of Islam under threat of death.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

I think I saw one of those once back in 97. He was moving through the brush so I didn’t get a good look but maybe someday we will have pictures to prove their existence. /

No blurry video? No footprints?

You can’t just leave us hanging on the possibility of a moderate Muslim, walking the earth.

Yep, this book is a chilling look at today’s reality.

Substitute soybeans for corn – and enjoy as well.

Leftists and some rightists are never truly liberal, nor progressive. May they get the savages’ treatment first.

so many people come to america- like, say , Copts, who live in fear of being raped and murdered because they are not muslims, and our free press is aiding and abetting in the deranged thirst for this man’s blood.

the first freedom to go after freedom of religion under sharia is freedom of the press. these dirtbags would be swinging from ropes once their useful idiocy is no longer required by the caliphate. paste their heads over the head of that poor ambassador in those dreadful photos- and that’s their lot under islam.

morons- dangerous, morally corrupt treasonous morons. what is more anti freedom of religion and freedom of speech than aiding and abetting the murder of another human simply for their very exercise of freedom of speech?

Wow….this would be a great opportunity to implement the OIC’s great desire to stop criticism of Islam wouldn’t it? Almost like it was set up . Looks like the OIC and Hillart/Huma might make some political hay out of this. Too bad about the unexpected sodomy/murder of the Ambassador, who saw that coming? They give the street address for that Pedophilophobe Jew/Copt/American filmtrailor maker yet?

Don’t worry about Allanpundit, he knows better than to disrespect the dynamite monkeys.

The 0bama regime is now the official censor for the islamic jihad.

Can we now dispense with the notion that this is all over a stupid movie?

Bitter Clinger on September 14, 2012 at 10:07 AM

I guess I got the answer to my question from this morning.

Bitter Clinger on September 14, 2012 at 5:10 PM

How about GodPundit AllahPundit change his handle to MohammedPundit, feature it prominently under that cute dog used to advertise HotAir, and watch him, Ed Morrissey, and MK Ham become as famous as Terry Jones. All perfectly legal and above board. You can’t buy that kind of advertising! And since he’s already anonymous, what could go wrong?

Paul-Cincy on September 14, 2012 at 5:10 PM

Well, my libtard friends on Facebook are in full defense mode re: the media. How dare I question the media’s integrity.

SouthernGent on September 14, 2012 at 5:10 PM

A craven degenerate is president.

Bit of an aside…
I think Vincent Price is the voice to best read your lines.

Is the Planet Mecca Prime due to be making it’s annul 9000 year close pass to the Sun?

SWalker on September 14, 2012 at 5:11 PM

I’m guessing Bill O’reilly is on board with this. He said the other day that saying things to appease these animals is a good way to keep them from doing something nasty, or something.

SailorMark on September 14, 2012 at 4:55 PM

He proved that by not spanking Geraldo and continuing to have him on his show after he insulted Michelle Malkin.

arnold ziffel on September 14, 2012 at 5:12 PM

I’d love to hear George Zimmerman’s take on this.

SouthernGent on September 14, 2012 at 5:10 PM

The Media has integrity? When did this happen? Certainly not during my 51 years on planet earth.

SWalker on September 14, 2012 at 5:12 PM

If we cave to the Islamist demands then they will surely see that we respect them and then they will leave us alone\
