Bill Clinton: Jail Cartoon Publishers!

What is it with members of the former Clinton administration? Why do they feel the need to go to Islamist countries, prostrate themselves before their people, apologize for all of America's percieved "sins", and then take the side of the Jihadis? Al Gore's recent denounciations of the country that made him Vice-President twice was bad enough, but now Bill Clinton, in Pakistan, is calling for limits on freedom of the press. Via Gatewaty Pundit, The Pakistani Daily Times reports the following:

Former US president Bill Clinton on Friday condemned the publication of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) caricatures by European newspapers and urged countries concerned to convict the publishers. Talking to reporters after meeting Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Islamabad, Clinton said he disagreed with the caricatures and that the publication was against religious and ethical norms....

He said the people’s religious convictions should be respected at all costs and the media should be disallowed to play with the religious sentiments of other faiths. He said the media could criticise any issue including governments and people, but nobody had the right to play with the sentiments of other faiths

So here's an ex-President, overseas in the country that is probably harboring Osama bin-Ladin himself, and urging official government censorship of free speech in the United States. Did he have the courage to ask Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf about the hunt for Osama, a hunt that would be unnecessary had Clinton taken his responsibility to protect the American people seriously? I am sure he didn't; in character as the appeaser and coward he always was, he dared not say anything that may provoke Islamist ire upon him. No, he'd rather direct that hate and irrationality upon the American people and their freedoms..

Note to the former appeaser in chief: Free Speech is an absolute, and as a war is being waged against the West in the name of the Prophet, WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES OF ISLAM AND THE WEST, AND IF THAT MEANS DARING TO DRAW PICTURES OF MUHAMMED, THEN THAT IS PART OF OUR RIGHT TOO. Bill Clinton doesn't realize that free speech, once it is curtailed it in the name of hurt feelings,will disappear in short order. There is a whole industry consisting of "offended" groups, and their feelings will have to be honored too. But Clinton is willing to give up our most cherished freedom, to speak without fear of reprisial, in order to buy five minutes of peace. Until the next Islamist riots, and the new demands are issued...

Should a Clintonista Democrat reach high office in '08, these insanities will become law. Where is the media now, as their free speech is being threatened by Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and the Muslims?

As the MSM froths over Dick Cheney, their very right to exist freely is being debated. Another story they're gonna miss, at the cost of their whole profession, and possibly their lives...
