Obama’s State Department: YouTube Video “Offensive, Disgusting, and Reprehensible” — While Pakistani Official’s Offer of Money to Kill Filmmaker Merely “Inflammatory and Inappropriate”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:55 pm

That’s what they said. I couldn’t make that up.

I can’t say it any better than Allahpundit:

Note whom the harshest pejoratives are reserved for. A movie insulting Mohammed is “offensive, disgusting, and reprehensible,” which is almost exactly the same phrase the White House used today to describe Ahmadinejad’s eliminiationist rhetoric towards Israel. Meanwhile, the guy who’s begging Al Qaeda to cut the head off the man who made it is … “inappropriate” and “inflammatory.” I realize that our “partnership” with Pakistan involves lots of funny little quirks, like giving them foreign aid while their intel bureau helps Afghan jihadis kill American soldiers, but can we muster a little extra invective for an honest to goodness government minister who’s calling on terrorists to murder a U.S. citizen? How about “inappropriate, inflammatory, and problematic?” Too sharp?

Guy has a way with words.

This cries out for an iowahawk parody.

  1. Maybe I should start a blog where the entire post is always in the headline.

    This is close to a good start.

  2. These are the same people that said the Muslim Brotherhood, which — the last time I checked — has the identifier “Muslim” in its name, is “mostly secular”; right?

  3. Obama usually only reserves his most damning statements for his domestic political adversaries, while giving every benefit of the doubt to those who have declared war against America. That’s why there’s no War against Jihad—only a Republican War on Women !

    That’s why he was absolutely certain the Cambridge police acted stupidly, but he wasn’t certain that Major Hassan was so much a Jihadist as he was a perpetrator of “workplace violence.”

  4. C’mon, we have to stick with the official meme. Any terrorist attack now is isolated and not part of a broader conspiracy. The Islamic republics love us because of our benevolence. Right is wrong. Upside down is right side up.

    President Eye-candy said so, so it is true. We were always at war with Eurasia. So, shut up. The next time we’re asked, it won’t be pleasant.

  11. @Ag80–
    President Eye-Candy has a nice ring of truth to it. We should go with that I think. The trolls will love it. And even better, it’s not a “dog whistle” that anybody can falsely contrive any element of racism to –since the preeezy said it about himself.

  13. Meanwhile, Andres Serrano’s famous 1987 “Piss Christ” photograph has been pulled out of someone’s basement vault, and is now back on display at a NYC gallery.

    But that’s something that falls under the umbrella of “artistic freedom.”

  14. President Gutsy Call has his own personal kill list and roving death squads, so how much complaining do you realistically expect him to do about the bounty from the Pakistan government minister. Since the left does not believe in free speech except for themselves, don’t be expecting full-throated defenses of the First Amendment.

  15. Hey Pakistan, Osama’s dead. Obama got him. Just ask him.

  16. Now Teh Won is saying everyone should ignore the YouTube video that they have spent the last 2 weeks blaming for all the violence in the Middle East.

    JD (7e251a)

  17. “Now Teh Won is saying everyone should ignore the YouTube video that they have spent the last 2 weeks blaming for all the violence in the Middle East.”

    JD – American Muslims seemed to survive it without storming public buildings and hoisting the Al-Qaeda flag. Must be some kind of difference. Perhaps the radical nature of the regimes Obama supports overseas coming home to roost, or something.

  18. It seems like Hillary Clinton, and many other people in the State Department, are coming down with Stockholm Syndrome.

  19. They really did have faulty intelligence – saying this was spontaneous was not political, unless you want to say that David Petreaus would lie for Obama.

    Al Qaeda Took Advantage of Libyan Protest, CIA Chief Says – (Sept 14 )

    The attack that killed four Americans in the Libyan consulate began as a spontaneous protest against the film “The Innocence of Muslims,” but Islamic militants who may have links to Al Qaeda used the opportunity to launch an attack, CIA Director David Petreaus told the House Intelligence Committee today according to one lawmaker who attended a closed-door briefing.

    Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House Intel committee, said Petraeus laid out “a chronological order exactly what we felt happened, how it happened, and where we’re going in the future.”

    “In the Benghazi area, in the beginning we feel that it was spontaneous – the protest- because it went on for two or three hours, which is very relevant because if it was something that was planned, then they could have come and attacked right away,” Ruppersberger, D-Md., said following the hour-long briefing by Petraeus. “At this point it looks as if there was a spontaneous situation that occurred and that as a result of that, the extreme groups that were probably connected to al Qaeda took advantage of that situation and then the attack started.”

    Petraeus did not speak to reporters..

    One problem: That’s completely not true. There was no protest in Benghazi.

  20. I don’t think what President Obama is saying, or avoiding, saying is going to do anything to stop he intifadeh.

    No Sammy, didn’t you hear, if Romney was president these islamists wouldn’t even dare to demonstrate or utter a word of protest against it. Infact that Muslim -bashing video would be winning awards in the Muslim world. what’s the matter with you mohn?

  26. Chimperor – is it fun savaging those straw people?

    JD (7e251a)

  27. @jd. U don’t get to have it both ways. Romney and his gang have critized this president for the unrest in the Muslim world, stating that it is because of weakness in obama’s foreign/Muslim world policy. So the question is; what would Romney have done differently to prevent this unrest?

    The Emperor (9ae02a)

  28. More like hallucinatory intelligence, mortars and automatic weapons, usually don’t figure in protests.

    narciso (ee31f1)

  29. The Emperor, Obama campaigned on the fatuous notion that his rhetoric would make the muslim street love the US. Like every promise Obama made, he failed utterly. Meanwhile, his inept foreign policy has botched Afghanistan, weakened our relationship with Pakistan, and likely lost us Egypt.

    Jimmy Carter II was best case and now only a dream. Obama is the worst President in modern times.

  30. 31. Allen West “Obama emboldens our enemies”.

    He goes to the UN General Assembly and gives a speech. “Islamophobes will not inherit the Earth”.

    To which ragheads and goat molesters everwhere burn him in effigy. Peace thru schtrenth.

    SF, Patraeus has been absorbed by the Borg.

    Well, that could be answer, but there’s a much better one. The U.S. is the victim of disinformation.

    Petraeus is not lying for Obama. But he has some sources that are completyely wrong.

    And that’s a worse thought.
