Remember just the other day, when President Barack Hussein Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”? Well, it looks like that’s one of the few promises he’s ever been willing or able to keep.
The California man behind a crudely produced anti-Islamic video posted to YouTube that has inflamed parts of the Middle East was arrested for violating terms of his probation, authorities said Thursday.
[Name and age withheld to spite fascists] was convicted in 2010 for federal check fraud and sentenced to 21 months in prison. Under terms of his probation, he was not allowed to use computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.
Nakoula was arrested after federal probation officials determined he violated the terms of his supervised release, said Thomas Mrozek U.S. Attorney’s spokesman in Los Angeles…
Protests have erupted around the Middle East over a 14-minute trailer for “Innocence of Muslims,” which depicts Muhammad as a womanizer, religious fraud and child molester. Though the trailer was posted to YouTube in July, the violence didn’t break out until Sept. 11 and has spread since, killing dozens.
Notice how they continue to pretend that this guy’s dopey YouTube video has anything to do with rioting in the Middle East and a terrorist attack on Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens on the anniversary of 9/11, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. If they just ignore that evidence, then it doesn’t exist. Oh, and did you know that throwing this man in jail has nothing to do with him exercising his right to free speech? Total coincidence.
This is happening in 2012, in the United States of America.
Speaking of our Libyan ambassador and the lies that the Obama administration and the State Department have told for weeks about his murder, The Hill reports:
Senate Democrats on Thursday will join their Republican colleagues in pressing the administration for more information about the deadly attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi.
“I will say that this has now turned into a very bipartisan concern,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told Fox News Thursday morning. “It’s my understanding today that all members of the Foreign Relations Committee — both Democrats and Republicans — are asking the administration for answers. So this is now something that certainly could never be colored as partisan…”
Officials initially attributed the attack to a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video before labeling the assault an act of terrorism several days later. The administration continues to say the attack was not planned in advance, despite Stevens’s reported concerns that he might have been on al Qaeda hit list and multiple media reports that have called the administration’s account into question.
It sure does take a lot of words to carefully avoid saying the obvious truth: Obama lied about Benghazi.
(Hat tip to Allahpundit, who also notes that Egypt has arrested a Muslim cleric for burning a Bible. Free speech: You’re doing it wrong.)
Update: Courtesy of Reason magazine:
As one of the YouTube(!) commenters notes, you can’t spell “Muhammad” without “U mad?”
Update: Eli Lake reports that Chris Stevens’ murderers bragged about it to Al Qaeda just hours after the attack. You know, the “spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video.”
Obama lied about Benghazi. Pass it on.

Update: This may come as a shock, but MSNBC does not want to talk about Benghazi.
