While broadcasting live footage, this morning, of Pastor Terry Jones’ trial regarding whether he can hold his planned protest in front of a Dearbornistan mosque, Detroit’s FOX News owned-and-operated FOX 2 News blacked out video that prosecutors showed of Jones burning a Koran. This is an interesting double standard because the station has shown Bibles and U.S. flags being burned, and crosses in jars of urine, etc. Why is it that they must shield the video of Jones burning the Koran? Because they don’t want to offend Muslims, that’s why. FOX News panders to Muslims, not Christians, not Jews, not Americans. (The trial is ongoing as I write this.) I already told you, earlier today, how the station’s dhimmi anchor, Huel Perkins, called the extremist imam from the mosque, Imam Hassan Qazwini, an imam “who preaches love and freedom,” an absolute lie.
Dhimmi FOX News Censors Out Koran-Burning Part of Pastor Terry Jones 1st Amendment Trial
In addition to that, what’s truly outrageous is that Jones’ trial to prevent his free exercise of his Constitutional First Amendment rights is ongoing right now in a Dearbornistan courtroom, less than three hours before his planned protest is to go on. I’m not sure why, but Jones chose to represent himself, a big mistake. I think he did this on purpose to be a martyr, so he can have the jury require he pay the bond for his planned protest, so that he won’t pay the bond, and so that he will get arrested and become an even bigger cause celebre. A real lawyer would have probably immediately appealed the fact that there even is such a trial, all the way up to the Michigan Supreme Court or higher and likely would have won. I’d have taken the case for free, and that’s what I would have done. Now, less than three hours before the planned event, it’s kinda too late.
That this trial is even going on is a travesty. After all, the City of Dearbornistan allowed the Westboro Baptist Church cretins to protest in front of the very same mosque, just recently, and there were no bond posting requirements made of them. They get death threats, too, which is the argument being made here–that Jones will cause violence and unrest because of the death threats against him.
Also absurd is that the prosecutors–Wayne County, which is full of roaming violent criminals, is wasting a ton of money and resources on the case, sparing no expense on this trial, and its top assistant prosecutor is trying the case–showed the jury a video of Jones burning the Koran. Not sure how his completely legal past First Amendment exercise is grounds for denying his future First Amendment exercise. Clearly, they are trying him for his past free speech exercise. That’s entirely unconstitutional and a violation of his rights. And it’s simply ridiculous. What the heck has happened to this country? We’ve lost.
Oh, and to repeat: FOX News–in pandering to Muslims–blacked out the video of Jones burning the Koran. A Dearbornistan jury can see it, but you can’t. No problem, though, with FOX News showing you Bibles and American flags being burned.
