What a proud moment for Islam this morning with Middle Eastern man-on-the-street Muslims having once again revealed themselves to be absolutist homicidal yahoos. How animal-level dumb do you have to be to look at clips from Sam Bacile‘s grade-Z satire The Innocence of Muslims and say to yourself, “That’s it…Americans must die for this!” And then shell the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and in so doing take the lives of Libyan ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others?
Bill Maher would say that the lesson, once again, is that all religions attract and energize the cretins of the world — those who have some kind of primal need to process life in good-bad, black-and-white, be-saved-or-be-damned terms.
Low-rent, low-information Christians have shown themselves to be appallingly ignorant in their support or condemnation of this or that film (I’ll never forget arguing with some of them when The Last Temptation of Christ opened in Century City 24 years ago) but have Christians ever killed anyone over a satiric anti-Jesus film? The Muslims who took part in the killing of Stevens and the others were like dogs, like wolves.
It’s been suggested that The Innocence of Muslims “would have hardly have been noticed, some say, had it not been for its promotion by U.S. pastor and bigot Terry Jones, who incited past protests for burning the Koran.
Bacile, a 52-year-old real-estate developer from southern California, has been quoted by the Wall Street Journal as calling Islam “a cancer.” He told the WSJ that he’s the film’s director-writer, and that he had “raised $5 million to make it from about 100 Jewish donors, whom he declined to identify.”
Here’s a just-posted “Judge Mohammed” video put out by the Florida-based Jones:
if foam-at-the-mouth Muslim dumb-asses want to fly over to Florida and Southern California and have it out with foam-at-the-mouth Christian bigots, fine. They deserve each other.
