PJ Media: DOJ to Enforce Obama’s Opinion that ‘The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam’
President Barack Obama declared in an address to the United Nations that “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” That was on September 26, 2012, as he lied about the causes of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that had killed four Americans. Now, Obama’s government is extending that threat even further.
In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.
The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.
“Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” Holder said after expressing that he is “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights. He also vowed to strengthen “crucial dialogue” between Muslim and Arab-American communities and law enforcement.
Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official, who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.
The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
Nakoula Nakoula could not be reached for comment, because the Holder Justice Department exiled him to the moon. He’s in one of the most obscure prisons in the United States, partly as a consequence of posting inflammatory materials against Islam on the Internet. So Killian’s not just engaging in idle chatter. This government has already done what he is explicitly threatening to do more of.
People post inflammatory material against Christians on the Internet every day. They have nothing to worry about though, either from Christians or from the US government.
Oh, and let’s all just imagine the uproar that would ensue if the nominally secular Department of Justice held a meeting sponsored by, say, the Catholic League in which the topic was to warn everyone else that saying bad things about Catholics on the Internet could bring the wrath of the federal government down on you. Only Islam gets this preferential treatment.
It’s difficult not to get seriously radicalized when the government goes this far off the rails. In the years since 9-11, we’ve gone from a justified war footing to a government that is behaving as if it intends to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws without any regard at all for the First Amendment. At the very least, Obama’s government is granting a heckler’s veto to the most radical of radicals among Islamist groups, worldwide. On that ground alone it’s unwise and will inevitably lead to more violence and more federal consequences on anyone who criticizes Islamic terrorists.

Brothers John Michael & Terry Talbot played together in several local bands around Chicago and Indianapolis. In 1969 they formed a group called Mason Proffit with its focus being based on the emerging blend of bluegrass, country, folk and rock that would later come to be called either country rock or southern rock. Older brother Terry’s composition (“Two Hangmen”) from their first album (“Wanted…Mason Proffit”) became a regional hit across the midwest and is a classic rock radio staple today (initially, due to its politically charged lyrics, it was banned by the FCC).
Some of Mason Proffit’s opening acts during that time later went on to write and sell multi-platinum singles and albums, including the likes of Mac Davis, John Denver, Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, and they also opened for acts as diverse as the Byrds, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd and Poco.
As I rode into Tombstone on my horse whose name was Mac
I saw what I’ll relate to you goin’ on behind my back
It seems the folks were up in arms, a man now had to die
For believin’ things that didn’t fit, the laws they’d set aside
The man’s name was “I’m A Freak”, the best that I could see
He was an executioner, a hangman just like me
I guess that he’d seen loopholes from workin’ with his rope
He’d hung the wrong man many times so now he turned to hope
He talked to all the people from his scaffold in the square
He told them of the things he found but they didn’t seem to care
He said the laws were obsolete, a change they should demand
But the people only walked away, he couldn’t understand
The Marshall’s name was Uncle Sam, he said he’d right this wrong
He’d make the hangman shut his mouth if it took him all year long
He finally arrested Freak and then he sent for me
To hang a fellow hangman from a fellow hangman’s tree
It didn’t take them long to try him in their court of law
He was guilty then of thinking, a crime much worse than all
They sentenced him to die so his seed of thought can’t spread
And infect the little children, that’s what the law had said
So the hangin’ day came ’round and he walked up to the noose
I pulled the lever but before he fell I cut him loose
They called it all conspiracy and that I had to die
So to close our mouths and kill our minds they hung us side by side
And now we’re two hangmen hangin’ from a tree
That don’t bother me at all
Two hangmen hangin’ from a tree
And that don’t bother me at all
