Dearborn Michigan Muslims Rally Against First Amendment Free Speech Rights...

-vs- Tyranny

It is getting to the point were I don't recognize my country anymore. Freedom of religion and speech, the hallmarks of our republic are now under attack by Muslims who were offended by some ridiculous movie trailer. The aim of course is to push the U.S. government to legislate "certain" restrictions on freedom of speech in the name of tolerance and understanding. Of course we all know, at least those of us who have retained some sense of rational thought that it's a very slippery slope. One that can only lead to tyranny and oppression.

The road to liberties loss has many tributaries if you will. Guarding the freedoms enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and the Bill of Rights requires vigilance. Vigilance and a fierce burning desire to remain free. Free to speak our minds, worship or not as we choose, and limit the capacity of our government to intrude into our lives where is has no business doing so. If only we had a president who could say these words, rather than add fuel to the fire of the Muslims who would have us all be less free.

Out of Dearborn Michigan comes the story that prompted this post. "Dearborn Muslims rally against the First Amendment" Enough to make even the most politically correct individual stop and take notice of how far some have strayed from our founding principles.

THE MICHIGAN VIEW - Led by a newspaper publisher, Muslim activists will call for putting limits on American free speech at a Dearborn rally this evening. You can't make this stuff up.

Nearly a decade after Dearborn's streets celebrated America for bringing down Saddam Hussein and opening a door to democracy in the Mideast, the same city will be the epicenter today of calls to squelch free speech. Protesting the film, "Innocence of Muslims," that has sparked protests in the Mideast, rally organizer Tarek Baydoun says that so-called blasphemy laws are necessary to prevent speech that hurts the "the religious feelings of Muslims."

This assault on the First Amendment in the name of the prophet Mohammed is a sad day in America - and confirms fears that Muslim-American activists do not understand the fundamental separation of church and state in the American Constitution.

"There is a need for deterrent legal measures against those individuals or groups that want to damage relations between people, spread hate and incite violence," said Arab-American News publisher Osama Siblani, a self-proclaimed "moderate" who is apparently oblivious to how gutting the First Amendment would affect his own business.

The Dearborn organizers seek an international law banning what they define as anti-Mohammed speech that would supersede American law... {Read More}

Indeed a slippery slope. If these activists were to have their way we would be well on our way to a One World Order. One where the laws of the United States of America would take a back seat to... Presumably Sharia law methinks.

  1. A surprising number of liberals will probably see nothing wrong with this. I linked your post, BTW.

    1. Thanks for the linky love Gorges. Sadly I believe you are correct, a very many progressives will see ABSOLUTELY no problem with this. But then again liberalism today bears little resemblance to the classical liberalism that gave us our freedoms and liberties.

      Sad it is indeed...

  2. Can you imagine if Christians did this? The only reason this is getting no airtime is because Muslims are a politically correct protected class that fits into the left's utopian schemes. Very spooky stuff. With the lack of leadership in America, who knows how far these wackos will get.

    1. Judging from history LCR I would say the methodical steady moving collectivist (PC) movement has just advanced their anti individual, anti liberty movement another step down the path...

  3. So you don't support freedom of speech.
    They have a right to say what they want, even if YOU disagree with it.
    Seems YOUR the one who wants to control free speech.
    Not surprising with your Nazi leanings.

    1. Anon, you know perfectly well I do. As usual you are practicing evasion of the truth. Truth being THESE PEOPLE are the ones advocating restricting free speech.

      I have no issue with these IDIOTS, not unlike yourself, spewing whatever BS and hate they and you choose. I do take issue with these IDIOTS, and apparently yourself trying to change our laws to RESTRICT speech they and you don't approve of.

      As to your bogus unsubstantiated claim I have Nazi leaning, take you BULLSH*T elsewhere. You are w/out a doubt the most intellectually dishonest and perverted person I've encountered on the net.

      So dude or dudette, whatever tghe case may be... STUFF IT.

    2. RN: The real people with Nazi leanings are the protesters that this post is a subject of. They hate free speech. They love strong, abusive government. They have a rabid mad-dog hatred of Jewish people.

      "You are w/out a doubt the most intellectually dishonest and perverted person I've encountered on the net."

      How soon you forget WD.

  4. Mohammed was a dumbbell. There, I said it. Come and arrest me, fellas'.

    1. Oh Yeah, way to state it simply! The "fellas" can come arest me as well.

  5. I am usually not in favor of deporting people, but in the case of these people who so despise our basic human rights (which is what the Bill of Rights protects) and scream at the top of their lungs for the US to become a brutal fascist dictatorship that crushes dissent.... well, this principle bends some.

    1. I completely understand your sentiment and reasoning. These people have a right to their opinions and views. They do not however have the right to restrict opposing views and opinbions...

    2. In a better world, people like this would sit down and shut up.
