Academic intelligentsia is right in line with their media soul mates.
Update: His real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, and he’s a Coptic Christian.
Good Morning. How soon is Sam Bacile going to be in jail folks? I need him to go now.When Americans die because you are stupid…
Anthea Butler is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The title of her most recent book, The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Angels Are Galvanizing the Religious Right, gives you a pretty good idea of where she stands politically.
This morning, she strongly implied that Sam Bacile is responsible for yesterday’s embassy attacks and, as a result, should be tossed into jail.
Bacile is an Israeli filmmaker who lives in California and has gone into hiding. He made the crappy movie that is being used as a pretext to justify the violence that erupted in Egypt and Libya yesterday.
But is making a movie that makes Muslims angry a crime? Butler appears to think so.
Of course, like any academic, Butler purports to support free speech rights:
And yes, I know we have First Amendment rights,but if you don’t understand the Religion you hate, STFU about it. Yes, I am ticked off.—

Newsflash, Butler: As a former Soldier/Intelligence Analyst/Iraq war vet, I understand violent Islamic theocracy and its practitioners, very well. Anyone who witnessed the attacks of 9/11 and pays attention to the world-wide infliction of muslim atrocities, understands their “religion” without the benefit of a lecture from a ‘speakin’ troof ta powa’ assclown like you.
If you want a good taste of the culture, get out from behind your desk, pack up your shit, and move to an Islamic nation-state of your choice. They kill Christians, Jews, and unbelievers, and treat women like chattel because their religion tells them to. Blaming their victims is indicative of someone who is incredibly retarded. On that note, you’re on an intellectual par with Obama and the State Department.
