Yeah, I think I’ll be calling him President Hussein for the next four years. That has a nice – and familiar – ring.
We may as well get ready for the new culture of thought crime prosecution that’s been coming for quite some time. For those of you who haven’t been paying attention to Canada and Europe’s hate speech prosecutions (which are coming to your neighborhood soon), here’s how it works.
If the left hangs Sarah Palin in effigy, it is excused (or celebrated) as “art”. And we are all to “respect the artist.”
“They told us we respect you as artists, we’re just concerned about the effect on the community,” Morrisette said. “I don’t resent them. I’m not angry at them. I respect their rights.” Morrisette, 28, said he talked by phone last night with West Hollywood Mayor Jeffrey Prang. He said Prang told them that he respected his first amendment rights but urged him to take down the display. “He said, “Think of the bigger picture,’” Morrisette said. “I told the mayor I will have it down by 8 a.m. Saturday. He said, ‘Thank you, the sooner the better.”
On the flip side, if there is a response to this – in this case, a hanging of B. Hussein Osama in effigy – those people are arrested and prosecuted for a hate crime. It’s also referred to as a “lynching” by the Old Media.
The incident was one of several in recent weeks involving effigies of the presidential candidates or their running mates. No charges have been filed in four other cases that have made national headlines.
UK Interim Police Chief Joe Monroe said the men “expressed remorse for a stunt that had gotten out of hand.”
Arrested were Joe Fischer, 22, a UK student, and Hunter Bush, 21, both of Lexington. Both were being held at Fayette County Detention Center on charges of disorderly conduct related to the hanging of the effigy. They were also charged with burglary and theft at a fraternity house where police said the materials came from.
The UK authorities are the same knee-jerk, politically-correct administrators who couldn’t find their balls with two hands and a road map. You’ll find this same gutless caving-in-to-grievance-groups from the ivory towers of universities to the boardrooms of the corporations that are regularly shaken down by the likes of Jackson and Sharpton.
The First and Second Amendments will be the first targets of the coming Socialist/Dim-O-Crack Government, so speak up before the inauguration, because doing so later will get you jail time.
