Since our Egyptian and Libyan embassies were attacked we’ve seen a steady stream of statements from the Obama administration who blame an obscure 14 minute film for the outbreak of the violence.
For example, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the video “disgusting and reprehensible.”
|Ironically, last year Clinton attended the smash Broadway musical “Book of Mormon,” an irreverent spoof on Mormonism which includes lines so trashy we wouldn’t put them in this email.|
Did you hear Clinton complain about the offense the musical afforded to Mormons? No? Because according to a column in The Wall Street Journal, she didn’t.
This illustrates the politically correct, free speech double standard.
Would Mrs. Clinton ever attend a Broadway spoof entitled “The Qur’an?”
Better yet, would such a musical ever be performed on Broadway?
This glaring double standard is a frontal assault on our precious First Amendment—by the very people who have taken an oath to uphold it.
|Did you know our State Department is working with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to advance UN Resolution 16/18, which calls for prohibiting speech that “incites violence?”|
Mormons, Catholics, Protestants, Hindus, Buddhists, etc., don’t respond to offenses to their beliefs with mass riots. They understand that free speech protects the right to offend.
Thus, UN Resolution 16/18 would have one notable effect—suppressing speech that offends Muslims. That would be the beginning of the end of the First Amendment.

Speak out now—while you still can.
Since the unjustified assaults on the U.S. embassies and consulates in Egypt, Libya, and over 23 countries, many in the Obama administration, the Congress, the media, and academia, have apologized, blamed or insinuated that a satirical film about Mohammed was the catalyst for all the violence.
We, the undersigned, know better—and we’ve had enough.
We’ve had enough of the Obama administration’s efforts to placate Islamist mobs motivated by ideology, or hatred of America, or just plain thuggery, with its repeated references to this obscure film that prior to September 11, 2012, no one had ever heard of.
We’ve had enough of the Obama administration and some Members of Congress insinuating or even implying that the violence against our embassies would not have occurred had it not been for this “offense” against Islam.
We’ve had enough of those who say a single blog post about an obscure film satirizing Islam is somehow responsible for the violence and anger raging throughout the Muslim world.
We’ve had enough of political leaders who cower in the face of the intimidation and bullying tactics of radical Muslims around the world who can never be appeased enough or accommodated enough.
We’ve had enough of the “establishment media’s” double standard, who defend satirical films and art that offend Christians and Jews as “free speech,” but condemn satire that offends Muslims as “hate speech.”
We’ve had enough of American politicians who fail to see or refuse to see the clear and present threat the Muslim Brotherhood poses to the United States.
We’ve had enough of the message of weakness coming out of Washington when what is required now is a defense of America, a defense of our values, strength, courage and resolve.
We are the silent majority in America.
We don’t riot when offended. We don’t storm embassies, kill ambassadors, or torch government buildings.
And we know that we’ve been here once before.
In 1979, we said “enough” to an economy in shambles, skyrocketing gas prices, and a president whose weakness emboldened Iranian radicals to hold Americans hostage for 444 days.
On November 6th, we will again say “enough,” just as patriotic and responsible Americans have said “enough” in the past.
We will VOTE.
