Liberals: Muslims Are Like Children. With Guns. [UPDATE: Obama Admin -- Muslims Can't be Trusted w/ Free Speech]

Muslims defame Pop, zero Catholic riots, zero liberal calls for censorship

On the way in to work today I was listening to the Diane Rehm show on NPR and the panelists were discussing the YouTube video masquerading as a "movie" over which Muslims around the globe are so outraged over. The taxpayer supported host kept asking why the video couldn't be outlawed and doesn't a video making fun of Mohammad constitute the "yelling fire in a crowded theater" exception to the First Amendment?

Yes, the discussion was that silly. And yes, your tax dollars hard at work.

We all know liberals are condescending. It's just who they are. They think they know how to run your life better than you. They went to college.

But rarely is this condescending philosophy so nakedly apparent than it is today as so many of them openly discuss why Muslims can't be treated like adults.

Americans must censor themselves, but only when it comes to certain groups. We can make fun of Christians. Not only can you make fun of Mormons, when you do we will praise you.

Broadway show defaming Mormons. Zero riots, zero calls for censorship, 14 Tony awards.

We can make fun of just about any one in the world. Personally, I like a good Pollack joke. And did you hear the one about the drunk Irishman who walked into a bar? Yeah, you know the punchline.

But certain groups, they say, do not qualify as fully capable human beings accountable for their own choices and responsible for their own actions.

Rather, your actions cause them to behave in certain ways.

Unlike adults, these people are not responsible for their behavior. You are responsible for their behavior.

They are like children. Parents are responsible for the behavior of children. And other adults need to watch what they say around children. You wouldn't want them finding out there is no Santa Clause.

Liberals believe Muslims are not responsible for their own actions. You are responsible for their actions.

So while they give lip service to the notion that Islam is a great religion on par with all other great religions, when they also claim that people must censor themselves around Muslims --- and only Muslims --- they are revealing what they really think of Muslims.

And I don't think this is a subtle point. The cognitive dissonance between giving multiple Tony awards for The Book of Mormon: The Musical and then condemning any and all criticism of Islam as somehow on par with Holocaust denial is so massive that it cannot escape even the most casual observer.

If I were a Muslim I'd be genuinely offended every time some liberal condescendingly put the blame on those speaking offensive words rather than those violently reacting to those words as if they had no self control. As if they were children.

Either Muslims are adults and accountable for their own actions or they are not. Liberals believe they are not and calls for censorship are not evidence that this is the case, it is proof.

UPDATE: China's money Your tax dollars harder at work as your government asks YouTube to take down the offensive video:

Obama administration officials also flagged the trailer to YouTube and asked the company to review whether it violated the website's terms of service
I actually don't mind YouTube deciding they don't want to have anything to do with the video. YouTube is a private company. They can censor what they want.

But the government of the United States encouraging censorship in my name? That crosses a line.

Also, where were the enlightened souls in the Obama administration when the Book of Mormon won all those Tonys?
