Before the storming of the US embassy in Cairo by a mob of hysterical vicious cunts protesting a film portraying Muslims as hysterical vicious cunts, that embassy released the following statement: “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Diplomats abased themselves and their nation, stabbed the principle of Free Speech in the back, cowered before the Devil of “hurt feelings,” betrayed those who have fought and continue to fight the enemies of democracy… and the mob came anyway.
The wages of appeasement are humiliation and death.
UPDATE: The film-maker is now in prison in California.
