update: this at pamela geller's house. the mufti of palestine calls for the murder of jews. google suppressed the broadcast of the film on youtube. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/01/dhimmitibe-youtube-freezes-pmw-for-showing-palestinian-muftis-speech-that-muslims-destiny-is-to-kill.html#comments .
for the original article at palestine media watch, go, here, http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=452&fld_id=452&doc_id=6099 . i am sure the mufti's conduct will receive a scathing rebuke from little green footballs, and that outspoken critic of violence, charles johnson. laughing. end update, 01.16.2011.
when anders breivik went on his rampage those on the left wanted to assign "responsibility" for his actions to the right in general, and, more specifically, upon individuals to who they identified as having advocated that violence be committed upon the left. a great hue and cry went up from the left vilifying many who were targeted as the source of such thought.
oddly enough the left was silent on the "responsibility" of karl marx & friedrich engels for the collectivist slaughters of millions perpetrated by soviet, sino, thai, cambodian, cuban and greek communists, socialists and devotees of their thought, to name but a few, in the 19th and 20th centuries. nor was any mention made of the contributions made to "marxist-leninism" by lenin, trotsky, mao and pol phot, again, to name a few. i do not mention the various african and south american theorists who also advocating "breaking a few eggs" in order to make the "communist omelet," but, their contributions though not inconsiderable are simply the addenda of followers.
and, oddly enough, the left was silent upon the more recent communist advocates such as marcuse, alinsky and francis fox piven, who openly advocates physical violence to advance the cause of the left. look to this video, in which francis fox piven openly advocates violence against the opponents of the left. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELvINNajtCQ . (need i mention that obama, hilary clinton, and various others, on the left, to include bill ayers & bernie dohrn, are devotees of alinsky, marcuse and piven?)
well, i think what is good for the goose is good for the gander.-- if theorists and commentators on the right are to be held "responsible" for the actions of anders breivik, to include those who adhere to their views, then karl marx, friedrich engels, lenin, mao, and to include to those who adhere to their views, should and are to be held responsible for the acts of lenin, stalin, mao, pol phot, che guevara, the castro's and the myriad other communist dictators and thugs who have killed millions advancing socialist "thought."
if the thinkers of the right are responsible for their thought, so are the thinkers on the left to be held responsible for their thought, and the evils committed by their followers.
tit for tat. whadda ya think 'bout dat?
who dat, indeed? if the left openly says the right is to have violence committed upon it, in the name of socialist progress, than what is to inhibit the right from saying (quite properly) that it is morally incumbent upon itself to rise to its own defense? who dat, indeed?
if you are capable, give some thought as to whether those who advocate the expression individual liberties, who advocate free thought & speech, or those who advocate collectivist rule & centralizing the voice of the "people" have done the most killing in the last two centuries upon our little orb.
you figure it out.
