  1. His name raised a red flag with me. And then his history of theft by deception. And then “Egyptian Copt”. I tend to think that he is a Gypsy, a criminal subculture which engages in frauds and thefts, begging and prostitution, mostly staying way from violent crimes. Gypsies found their way into Europe in the middle ages by claiming to be Egyptian Christians fleeing Muslim persecution. Can we send him to Germany?

  3. #1 Gypsies from Egypt? Can you source that for me. First time I ever heard it.

  4. They claimed to be from Egypt. They were from India. “Gypsy” is a corruption of Egyptian.

  7. The Left is raving mad, e.g., The Hill:

    “With 50 days until the 2012 election, President Obama has a small, but clear lead over Mitt Romney.

    Obama is ahead of Romney by a narrow margin in most national polls, and has a slightly wider lead in most swing states, giving Romney almost no room for error. Obama continues to lead Romney in personal likability — a major asset — and a sustained barrage of summer advertising from his campaign combined with a successful Democratic National Convention has put him in the driver’s seat heading into the election’s homestretch.”

    Urkel is winning nationally, an Electoral College contest, but has a wider lead in the swing states.

    This is indeed possible if the less populous Red states are basically unanimous in rejecting Ogabe.

  9. Mr. Icy did you realize that whorenanke’s promiscuous money-printing orgy is explicitly front-loaded for to reelect our fascist whore president?

    The Fed will spend $85 billion a month through December in this program – roughly a quarter-trillion dollars.

    After that, the Fed will spend $40 billion a month – roughly a half-trillion dollars a year – on this program.

    no one tells me anything I have to read it in the British press

    The Polish government hops a plane to Moscow. The Russkis close the airport and the plane greases the countryside without lights or homing signals. A tragedy, which of course Barcky blows off and Hill sends an undersecretarial assistant to somethingorother.

    Trying these bastards is a complete waste of time and money, they’re guilty, let’s get ‘er done.

  11. No one tells US anything. Up until now, I had only heard the $40 billion figure. Thanks for melting yellow snow into my corn flakes!

    And in other cheerful news:
    Hezbollah planned a large protest in Beirut on Monday, after its leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech that the U.S. must be held accountable for the film

  12. A tragedy, which of course Barcky blows off and Hill sends an undersecretarial assistant to somethingorother.

    Well, let’s be fair, he did have an important golf game scheduled for the day of the funeral. Of course later we heard that a volcano eruption in Iceland made overseas flying impossible, since I guess Air Force One has primitive navigation systems or something.

  13. As we discuss the White House directing the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to personally call Pastor Terry Jones and “ask” him to stop promoting the film, as well as ‘someone’ at the federal level sending brown-shirts to the filmmaker’s house in the middle of the night to ‘escort’ him downtown for a “voluntary” interview, let us have a little reminder of WHY we are able to engage in the discussion:

    Obama has learned press relations and electoral manipulation from Putin. All that he really needs is to learn how to use a rubber-stamp legislature; he blew it last time.

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  21. Given that he wasn’t arrested, and that there’s zero evidence of any involvement by the President, this amounts to “make stuff up and generate phony outrage.”

    Just in case you’re wondering why no one outside the extremist fever swamps on the right cares about this lame meme. But, keep on making Nazi comparisons over a guy talking to his probation officers. It makes you totally look sane and balanced.

    Geek, Esq. (f2a108)

  22. Rush pointed out that Bill Maher made a movie slamming religion including Islam, but for some reason his movie was not credited with causing any disturbances. maybe it wasn’t as obscene. maybe no one wanted to use it as an excuse. maybe it was because he donated a lot of money to the one. (am I allowed to say that?)

  23. Comment by Geek, Esq. — 9/17/2012 @ 12:54 pm

    Mr. Geek, Esq.,

    Do your clients routinely get hauled in after midnight by a veritable gang of law enforcement officers to “answer questions”.

    Instead of talking about what there is not evidence of, please be so kind as to give us evidence that explains why the documented treatment was justified.

    Thank you.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  24. Yes, MD in Philly, Maher donated money to the Obama super pac, and this obviously prevented riots in the Middle East.

    Or, are you arguing that there were riots and attacks on US embassies, but the donation to the super pac resulted in a news media blackout?

    Or is there a third version of events you’d like to create? It’s not like reality matters . . .

    Geek, Esq. (f2a108)

  25. Geek – just a coincidence, right?

    JD (318f81)

  26. Or is there a third version of events you’d like to create? It’s not like reality matters . . .

    Maybe insulting religions is okay if you are Obama and Maher?!

    Comment by Geek, Esq. — 9/17/2012 @ 1:01 pm

    Since you so eagerly responded to my tongue in cheek sarcasm, perhaps you will just as eagerly explain why someone is hauled in by a gaggle of sheriff’s deputies after midnight to talk with their probation officer.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  28. First, my clients are not felons whose parole violations are detailed in the press.

    Second,

    Whitmore said Nakoula left the area on his own and would not be returning to his Cerritos home.

    The spokesman further emphasized that Nakoula was “never handcuffed, he was never arrested, never detained, never in custody — it was all voluntary,” adding that he chose to cover his face, “that’s what he wanted and he had every right to do it.”

    Again, sorry to burden y’all with the actual facts, but he wasn’t even arrested.

    Geek, Esq. (f2a108)

  29. Just a coincidence that the Feds wanted to voluntarily ask him questions in the middle of the night. Gotcha.

    MD – it has no intention of actually engaging. It is trolling.

    JD (318f81)

  30. Again, repeating a blatant falsehood like “he was hauled in” doesn’t make it true.

    He requested police protection. The cops were there at his request–a logical request on his part, btw, given the number of nutjobs that would like to physically harm him.

    Geek, Esq. (f2a108)

  31. As to the timing, you’d have to ask him. Probably safer to move at night rather than at day when someone with a gun could take him out from 200 yards.

    Geek, Esq. (f2a108)

  32. If there was a serious connection, I would think that it has to do with this “movie” being used as an excuse, and no one was interested in using Maher’s movie as an excuse. The money had nothing to do with it.

    But it does indicate that the Obama administration’s attempt to blame the eruption of the “Arab Summer” (hot and nasty) on a You Tube clip is a bit hit and miss, especially while crowds chant about Obama and Osama in Arabic.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  33. Geeky Esq likes false choices. See #24, wherenyou either choose between it’s asshattery, or make up something where reality doesn’t matter. These trolls are so tyresome.

    JD (318f81)

  34. He requested police protection. The cops were there at his request–

    Yes, that would make sense. No one else that I have heard or seen anywhere has shared the information that it was at his request. Can you tell us how you know this.

    How was it that “all the nut-jobs” knew where he was? looks to me like there was plenty of light for a sniper in the cover of dark, FWIW.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  35. I emailed these to a few friends under the title:

    Epic classic troll. Only crazy people care about the topic. Sane people, on the left and MFM, are obviously ignoring this not-story. Getting the vapors over Nazi comparisons that they routinely engage in. You are insane and imbalances. This one comment hit on almost every classic trollish characteristic.

    JD (318f81)

  39. Remember, in Geek Esq’s world, when Bush’s press secretary urged restraint in speech, it was the White House suppressing speech. When Obama press secretary directly blames a man for violent attacks on US embassies, deaths of State employees and security, and he is brought in for questioning at midnight … nothing to see folks, move along.

    Laughable. Like e ery single defender of the Bozo the Clown President.

  42. MD in Philly:

    Try googling: Nakoula requested police protection

    Per CNN:

    One of the few public reports about Nakoula emerged this week when he called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Wednesday night to report a disturbance, said Whitmore. Nakoula wanted local police to protect him.

  46. Geek, Esq. seems to know an awful lot about middle-of-the-night police procedures—he may be speaking from experience !

    Elephant Stone (65d289)

  47. You know what? I can almost believe that Nakoula called the sheriff’s office on Wednesday night for protection, and that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department happily obliged by sending five officers on Saturday. You could almost convince me that this represents a prompt response from the LACSD. Almost. But I can’t help but come back to the idea that it is all about placating extremists in the Middle East so that Obama’s nuts get pulled from the fire (metaphorically speaking).

    JVW (edec8d)

  48. From The Daily Caller:

    Nakoula was detained briefly over the weekend in California after federal officials questioned whether the production of the film violated the terms of his probation…

    That, and he wanted protection too.

    Birdbath (716828)

  49. By the way – what would be the response of local. state and federal governments if we had a local judge or grand jury revoke status of forces agreements with the DOD over placement of US Military bases on state land, given the clearly unconstitutional act of the Joint Chiefs Chair in calling a private citizen and demanding forfeiture of First Amendment Rights?

Did Feds save what could have been 100 or more people in a liquor store, night club, outdoor cafe, fire station and CTA train had the bomb been real and set off?

    Riehl finds the maker of the Stevens extracted from consulate vid is an Al Qaeda supporter on his Facebook page. Moreover, he dedicated the vid to an Al Qaeda martyr from Benghazi.

    Meanwhile Ogabe admin is not talking until investigation complete. Like wonder when that’ll be, after the whole world knows they’re lying?

  55. So as I understand the IDIOTS — he voluntarily wanted to be questioned by State and Federal Authorities?

    I could see he voluntarily wanting protection but since when does protection involve questioning?

    I would assume they could do “protection” without much discussion at all.

  57. Geeky is this your theory? The guy calls the S.O. telling them he needs protection from islamic terrorists. The S.O. buys this story and promptly responds (in a couple of days) with 4 deputies and a supervisor, late at night. A photographer “happens” on them loading him into a car and snaps a photo which makes it look like he’s being taken into custody. He then gets taken in to wherever it is, to be questioned regarding probation/parole violations.

    Geeky, do you seriously think that it happened that way? That there was not some pretty heavy concern from somewhere way up the food chain?

    You’re done with what? What part of Rick Santorum’s views did I prove correct?

    I love it when people link to things that prove them wrong. I don’t know if they can’t read, can’t think logically, or think that when they show a link people will assume what they are talking about is legit.

    As said by JVW and Lbcatcher, he called requesting help on Wednesday per your source, which apparently called for a prompt response 3 days later. Of course, maybe he kept calling until they showed up, and your reference, supposedly proving we are idiots, didn’t mention it.

    Like I said, I love it when people do this when I give them an opportunity to document their point. Having gone through this process once, I have no need of repeating it.

    With local budgets heavily impacting staffing levels, the sheriff regrets to inform the citizenry that response times will be greater than previously experienced.

    Comment by Rodney King’s Spirit — 9/17/2012 @ 8:25 am

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the film that seems to have sparked all this, the Innocence of Muslims film? Secretary Clinton today said she thought it was disgusting. How would you describe it?

    MITT ROMNEY: Well, I haven’t seen the film. I don’t intend to see it. I you know, I think it’s dispiriting sometimes to see some of the awful things people say. And the idea of using something that some people consider sacred and then parading that out a negative way is simply inappropriate and wrong. And I wish people wouldn’t do it. Of course, we have a First Amendment. And under the First Amendment, people are allowed to do what they feel they want to do. They have the right to do that, but it’s not right to do things that are of the nature of what was done by, apparently this film.

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: We’ve seen General Martin Dempsey call Pastor Jones to say, “Please don’t promote this film.” You think that’s a good idea?

    MITT ROMNEY: I think the whole film is a terrible idea. I think him making it, promoting it showing it is disrespectful to people of other faiths. I don’t think that should happen. I think people should have the common courtesy and judgment– the good judgment– not to be– not to offend other peoples’ faiths. It’s a very bad thing, I think, this guy’s doing.

    Where is Romney now that the President from Kenya is rounding up political prisoners, and thought criminals?

    Is it still just a “bad idea” and a matter of “common courtesy and judgment”?

    For a while, the Romney’s team was Johnny on the spot with incisor sharp criticism of the Kenyan’s almost daily gaff / outrage against reason, common decency, or the Constitution. So much so that he was even ahead of the blog cycle and making news rather then being the spectator.

    Every day of silence from the leader of the Republican Party is another day emboldening the Democrat in Chief.

    I often ignore interactions of others with those showing trollish behavior, you guys have it under control and my brain needs to prioritize its limited resources. So, every once in a while for some reason, I feel inclined to give someone enough rope to hang themselves with.

    Usually I guess it is because they specifically challenge something I say, and the hair on the back of my neck goes up in “Oh, yeah!?” mode.

    Maybe insulting religions is okay if you are Obama and Maher?!

    OK with the Moslem Brotherhood and the Ayatollah and Al Qaeda?

    No, what it is, is they only make protests over carefully selected issues. They never make protests over anything important – so nothing will happen because of the bin Laden film.

    In fact, actually, they only make protests when they control what they are protesting, and know well in advance what’s going to happen, and especially control the publicity, so it springs up all of a sudden.

    The Mohammed cartoons had extra cartoons added – in this case, they probably commissioned the film, as I said.
