A Piece of Crap ?

Dumb, stupid, ignorant, idiotic and simpleminded are a few of the words that immediately come to mind after viewing the Muhammad movie trailer below which is causing all of the turmoil in the Middle East. It’s sad to think that this trailer may have led to the senseless deaths of four Americans especially ambassador Chris Stevens who had such a passion for his job.

Free speech is a wonderful thing and one of many things that make our country great, but I often wonder if something like our freedom of speech needs to be explained more fully to people who live in countries where their government for years have censored books, films and the internet.

I hope Muslims know that we Americans have the right to view whatever we want and it’s up to each of us to make up our own mind as to whether or not we believe it. I guess I was expecting something a little more thought provoking, but this movie trailer wasn’t even worth the time it took to watch it !

  1. I thought the same thing. It was a complete waste of time.
    People in countries where free speech is squelched can’t conceive of the way life is in the US. I traveled through Third World countries in the 80s and some of the people I met thought all Americans lived the lifestyle depicted on “Dallas”; that we all wore dresses with cleavage showing to our bellybuttons and leapt enthusiastically from bed to bed leaving a wake of ruined marriages behind us.
    Free speech is as unfamiliar to many people in the world as walking on the moon would be to us. It can be described but not understood until it is experienced.
