If You Show A Film Saying We're A Bunch Of Violent Religious Fanatics, We Promise Violence Upon Everyone Who Insults Our God By Showing It.

Talk about proving the point! Links to the Gert Wilders film about Islamic extremeism, Fitna, and to some of of the controversy, are here at Instapundit.

It has been pulled from YouTube, though it seems it be back up for the moment. And LiveLeak has pulled it specifically because of violent threats.

What happened to this concept, people?

"...that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
-John F. Kennedy

Or this one?

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
-Declaration of Independence

Or even this one?

"Article 19: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
-United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Anyone? Anyone at all?
