Free Speech Gets "Shut Up" Call From Obama Military

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Are you ready for this?  Obama’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has called Terry Jones and told him, in essence, to stop exercising his First Amendment rights.  When the military, acting under the presumed authority of the President, calls a private citizen, and a pastor, and tells him to shut up, things are severely out of hand.

Nobody in the U.S. government, least of all the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff acting in his official capacity, should be calling Terry Jones
or any other American citizen about the Mohammed spoof. Not only does
that elevate Jones to some sort of semi-official status, but spoofs of
deities are entirely within our rights and absolutely no business of the
government’s. The U.S. government should not be taking an official
position on the Mohammed spoof.  It is entirely outside the official
competence of United States military to be calling private citizens
asking them be quiet, especially when they are exercising a
constitutional right. Offending people is not an incitement to violence.
Otherwise I could get everyone who wears a Che Guevara t-shirt brought
up on charges of incitement.

[M]embers of Congress should formally protest General Dempsey’s phone call
to Terry Jones. I know Petraeus did it when Terry Jones was going to
burn some Korans, but he was wrong then and General Dempsey is wrong
now. In their private capacity they can make whatever phone calls they
want. In their official capacity they have no business making phone
calls like this.  [National Review]

Do you see what is coming if Obama gets another term?  Our Embassy in Cairo apologizes to Islam for a spoof rather than standing up for America’s right to free speech and then the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff calls the guy and tells him to be quiet.

Are you up and moving yet?
