Afghanistan Blocks YouTube Over Anti-Mohammed Video


On one hand, you have to wonder if this is what we’ve fought in Afghanistan all these years to see: blocking freedom of speech. On the other hand, can you blame the government of Afghanistan? They must know that theirs is the only religion that will riot, burn, destroy, and kill over a simple video

(Telegraph) The Afghan government on Wednesday banned YouTube from the country for the first time to prevent people from watching an anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Muslims, which sparked a riot in Libya that killed the US ambassador and three other American diplomats.

“Following instructions by the ministry of information and culture, the ministry of communication has ordered all service providers to block YouTube access,” communications ministry official Aimal Marjan told AFP.

On third hand, Muslims sure seem to be touchy people.

He said the block had been ordered “until YouTube removes this abusive film”.

And you just know that YouTube will remove it. They always cave to fascists, whether they be Progressives, Warmists, or Islamists. Now, if it was a video that demeaned Christianity, there’s no way it would be removed. Partly because Google doesn’t have to worry about Christians blowing up the companies people, servers, and buildings.

The Afghan presidency earlier condemned the film as “inhuman and insulting,” calling for it not to be broadcast.

Know what else is inhuman? Blowing people up because they do not subscribe to your religion.

And this is what we’ve fought for all these years. So far the movie hasn’t been removed. And does, let’s be honest, look pretty dumb. But, is free speech here in America.

And what’s Obama doing after giving a bland statement on what happened in Libya and Egypt (and refusing to take questions)? He’s on his way to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. A complete abdication of duty. And JackM rightly points out that Team Obama used stronger language against Dinesh D’souza than against the Islamists.
