Things to think about.


The filmmaker behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that some blame for the Middle East riots, was taken into custody. Is this the end of the First Amendment as we know it? Find out on this Trifecta.

This seethes every bit of rage I feel over this.

Some interesting commentary from the right on Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and Obama for your afternoon. For reference, here’s our cheat from when Nakoula was taken in for questioning: 

A California man widely believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was taken in by police shortly after midnight Saturday to be interviewed about his involvement in an anti-Muslim film, Innocence of Muslims, that has sparked widespread violence throughout the Middle East. He was not arrested or detained, but taken in voluntarily to speak with police. Nakoula, who claims to have been the film’s logistics manager but not its director, has in the past been convicted on bank fraud charges and may have violated his probation in uploading the controversial movie to YouTube.
