US Attorney: Freedom of speech? Sure, as long as you don’t offend Muslims on the internet

Ugh. Now the Obama administration is going to try and make it a federal crime to post anti-Muslim stuff on the internet. US Attorney Bill Killian and FBI Special Agent Kenneth Moore will make a special trip to Tennessee to hold a public meeting, sponsored by American Muslim Advisory Council, to educate people on the civil rights of Muslims or something.

Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media.

“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

Killian said the presentation will also focus on Muslim culture and how, that although terrorist acts have been committed by some in the faith, they are no different from those in other religions.

Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.

“That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.

This sounds like it’s got everything to do with people like the Florida Pastor who burned the Koran in 2010. If you’ll recall, he’s pledged to burn 3,000 Korans on 9/11 this year. My guess is if he does it the Feds are going to make an example out of him and arrest him.

After all, as PJ Tatler reminds us, it was Obama who said this:

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
