Our administration, proving yet again how little respect they have for free speech, investigating the makers of the "film" that is being blamed for the riots in the Caliphate. They have even released his name and general location where he lives. NBC Los Angeles reports on the story.
Going back to Sister Toldjah:LA County Sherrif’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed to NBCLA that Nakoula was taken to the Cerritos sheriff’s station for interviewing by federal probation officers aimed at determining whether he violated the terms of his 5-year probation by uploading a video to the Internet.
"We are in an assist mode," he said.
In “assist mode”? To who?And what was his crime that he's on federal probation for?
Look, we all know what’s going on here but it’s being done under the pretense of the “filmmaker” being “suspected of violating his probation.” Do not be fooled. This ‘film” was released months ago but he is only now being taken in for questioning why exactly? Because radical Islam is literally setting the world on fire, and the feds want to put on a dog and pony show to indicate to the Muslim world that they are “doing something” about this filmmaker who so offended the sensitivities of fundamentalist thugs who hate Western values.
Let me also say this: Nakoula doesn’t sound like a paragon of virtue, but he was expressing his First Amendment rights to an opinion some people don’t agree with. Does he deserve the treatment he is receiving by the press, other critics, the feds, and the Obama administration?
A federal grand jury indictment in February 2009 charged Nakoula in an alleged bank fraud conspiracy. The indictment accused him and others of fraudulently obtaining the identities and Social Security numbers of bank customers at Wells Fargo and withdrawing $860 from bank branches in Cerritos, Artesia and Norwalk. (emphasis added - SiG)$860? Yeah, this really is all about $860, and not about making a show like Sister Toldjah says. As I've said many times, the average American commits three federal crimes every day. Federal prosecutors have the Infinite Checkbook of the fed.gov at their disposal. They will find something on him. Constitution be damned.
Ann Barnhardt is demanding to be arrested for blasphemy because of her famous Koran-with-bacon-bookmarks videos. The feds wouldn't dare. They might have someone shoot her from a thousand yards, but they wouldn't dare put her on a witness stand.
