Just 10,000 or so.
Back in the old days, before history was rewritten, the murder of an American ambassador and rioting at U.S. embassies across the Middle East on the 11th anniversary of 9/11 was blamed on a dumb YouTube video called “Innocence of Muslims.” That was before we knew that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered in a highly organized terrorist attack, that there was ample warning of such an attack, that there was no protest in Benghazi, and that the White House and the State Department knew all these things within 24 hours. That was before we knew how egregiously they lied, and continue to lie, about the murder of our ambassador.
But that doesn’t mean Muslims can’t still be ticked off about that dopey video, as The Telegraph reports:
A protest by 10,000 Muslims outside the offices of Google in London today is just the first in an orchestrated attempt to force the company to remove an anti-Islamic film from website YouTube in Britain…
Anger over ‘The Innocence of Muslims’, an American-produced film which insults the Prophet Mohammad and demeans Muslims, according to protesters, remains available to watch on the website YouTube, a subsidiary of Google.
Organiser Masoud Alam said: “Our next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world. We are looking to ban this film. This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed.”
You know who agrees with him? The President of the United States:
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” How about that.
YouTube hasn’t backed down. Yet. They seem to be under the impression that you have the right to free speech, even if you offend a Muslim.
I know, right?
