The conservative trash news site Hot Air, posted this bizarre “don’t blame us, blame Muslim’s who can’t deal with criticism” screed by Ed Morrissey. The filmmaker is the real victim here?
Over the last couple of days, I wonder whether the American media may get someone killed — and perhaps more than a few people — with their irresponsible stakeout of “Sam Bacile.” If anyone interested in taking revenge on Nakoula Besseley Nakoula wanted to know where to find him, it wouldn’t take long in Cerritos, California, especially with some media reports noting Nakoula’s distinctive front door. This media swarm puts that entire neighborhood at risk, now and probably for a very long time. And for what? Is Nakoula a serial killer? A child molester? No, he’s a man with poor taste who made a video that insulted some people who can’t deal with criticism, even the laughably inane and inept criticism of this 14-minute cheesefest that makes Plan 9 From Outer Space look like Citizen Kane.
Real laughable stuff, resulting in people dying and anti-American demonstrations? What is it about a conservatives inability to take responsibility, ever? I don't even want to get into their weird, twisted, sick sense of humor.
According to the media:
A man purported to be a filmmaker involved with the anti-Islam video sparking violent unrest in the Middle East and North Africa was escorted by deputies from his Cerritos, Calif., home shortly after midnight Saturday morning, NBCLosAngeles.com reported. Nakoula emerged wearing a coat, hat, scarf and glasses. L.A. County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed to NBCLA that Nakoula, 55, was taken to the Cerritos sheriff’s station for interviewing by federal probation officers aimed at determining whether he violated the terms of his 5-year probation by uploading a video to the Internet.
