Geert Wilder's new film is frightening
go, watch, come back, comment.
me, i've been out and about the web reading reactions. i can't believe how many people there are out there that said this is the first time they've heard/seen these things. all i can figure is they must live in a perfect vacuum.
well, that didn't take too long. there are versions out there still, but a very credible threat of physical harm to the folks at liveleak has caused them to pull the video. it took less than a day. want to know why we need to be frightened of the islamists? you don't need to look any further than this post.
what really bothers me is that i know a number of muslims, and they are nothing like the hate filled murderous bastards that are fomenting all of this. i fear for my friends, because it will not take too long before those among us that want freedom and security, those diametrically opposed to the message these cretins spout (i.e. kill americans, fuck the jews, fuck free speech) take it on themselves to make their point. the point? islam in its current public state is on a collision course with history. kind of reminds me of the old joke about a syrian kid asking his dad why there were no arabs on Star Trek. a bystander answered, "because it's in the future."
UPDATE i guess it's the old trying to put a lid on a boiling pot. something is going to get by. i went looking for, and found a link to the video. it's out there in a number of places. here's one that doesn't require any fancy stuff to see in my brower (firefox). Shoutfile link to FITNA
