The former University of Chicago lecturer on constitutional law has sided the the raging Muslims mobs half a world away in calling for the removal of the offending video from YouTube. Obama has capitulated to the wishes of the Muslim world, thinking perhaps, that mob violence should trump the first amendment. The Washington Post reports:
The White House has asked YouTube to review an anti-Muslim film posted to the site that has been blamed for igniting the violent protests this week in the Middle East.
However, the video remained on the site as of Friday afternoon, and it is posted many other places on the Internet.
On Wednesday, a YouTube spokesperson said the video “is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube.”
This is what democracy looks like?
