Obviously that happened in this case.
Isn't incitement a hate crime? Don't we have laws against incitement? Evidently the producer of the film has gone into hiding. But is he hiding from US law enforcement- - or from angry Muslims? Not sure which.
I don't think speaking the obvious about a religion is either incitement or a hate crime - but then again simply offending certain groups is considered both, as if they have a special right to not be offended which overrides the right of free expression.
There are countless vids on YouTube of people insulting Muslims in every way imaginable, just as there are countless vids there of Muslims insulting everyone else in every way imaginable.
We should not allow Muslim chimpouts to dictate our right to free speech. If we do so we cave in to fear of violence (from a self-declared peaceful religion, no less) and allow theocratic hoodlums dictate our basic rights.
If you wouldn't allow Christians to dictate your right to free speech, why would you let Muslims?
