Jay Carney is still pushing the story that an anti-Muslim film “forced” these “dedicated religious Muslims” to riot, burn, and murder. It’s the Geraldine Jones defense, made famous by comedian Flip Wilson: "The Devil made me do it."
But instead of the devil, it’s some obscure film. A film doesn’t make anybody commit criminal acts.
These Muslim radicals don’t need an excuse to riot. There is so much anti-Muslim material on the internet that it’s hard to believe that some amateur film that’s been out since June and that few people have seen is what’s motivating these terrorists.
What’s shameful is that our government is falling for this and trying to convince the American people that bloodshed in the name of Allah is righteous because of some perceived religious offense.
And so what if this film is all these Muslims say it is? Does this mean that they are justified in attacking our embassies and killing representatives of the United States who had nothing to do with the film? Give me a break.
All you anyone has to do to find out what the real motivation for these riots is to read the latest news stories. I suspect that President Obama doesn’t have a clue what’s going on in the world because he’s in fund raising mode. He was just bragging that he raised more money in August that Mitt Romney did. Four US citizens were killed, and he’s playing a game of one-upmanship.
Even the folks at the Associated Press have fallen for it. Of course, they’re in the tank for Omama :
“Angry protests over an anti-Islam film spread across the Muslim world Friday, with demonstrators scaling the walls of U.S. embassies in Tunisia and Sudan and torching part of a German embassy. Amid the turmoil, Islamic militants waving black banners and shouting ‘God is great’ stormed an international peacekeepers base in Egypt's Sinai and battled troops, wounding four.”
What do “international peacekeepers” or Egyptian solders have to do with an anti-Muhammad film that was supposedly developed by someone in the United States?
Those in the Obama administration either have been the willing victims of an extravagant hoax or they are trying to salvage what’s left of a dismal presidency and are willing to say anything to protect the President. There are even people in the media who are doubting if this “anti-Islam film is even a film in the first place —a mind-boggling thought given the international uproar it has caused for insulting the prophet Muhammad.”
As BuzzFeed's Rosie Gray noticed,
“The video is a compilation of the most clumsily overdubbed moments from what is in reality an incoherent, haphazardly-edited set of scenes.” Just look at the horrid way the desert backdrop is green-screened into the background. This is a film with a $5 million budget?
Obama, Hillary, and Jay Carney are trying to sell the American people some flim-flam. As Mordecai Jones said, “You can’t cheat an honest man.”
