We are still in the opening years of the great technology revolution that each day not only changes our lives, but changes our conception of basic ideas such as freedom of speech. Actress Cindy Lee Garcia is engaged in a dissipate with YouTube which goes to the very basic concept of freedom of speech. She wants an anti-Muslimm video removed because its very existence poses a threat to her life. The video claims that she uttered anti-Muslim comments which leads people to believe that she hates the prophet Mohammad. She never uttered the words attributed to her. Now, she confronts the possibility that some Muslims might regard her as one who has insulted their prophet.
Three judges in the 9th Circuit Court are demanding that YouTube remove the offensive video on grounds that its presence poses a threat to the life of Ms.Garcia. On the other hand, some argue this is a threat to the First Amendment right to free speech. Of course, she is now receiving death threats. We agree with the judges, free speech does not allow anyone to yell, “fire” in a crowded theater.

The torture report is now being presented to the American people. Fox News are their pundits are already issuing new hysteria about this horrible report which is really a pack of lies. One Fox News commentator insisted that he continued supporting torture as long as it “was done fairly. Indignation is sweeping the nation from those who have never lost trust in the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld theory of how to conduct a war. They insist that if Americans behave like sadists, then blame the Muslims who began the process of sadism. Who can forget the hysteria weapons-of-mass destruction- al Qaeda,-Saddam Hussein- chemical weapons ready to end the American nation that once was the norm of those who believed in Jack Bauer of 24 and the necessity of torturing in order to prevent Los Angeles from getting blown up? The new Republican norm is a state of INDIGNATION to Senator Diane Feinstein, the new source of unAmericanism. Mitch McConnell insists revealing torture “will significantly endanger American lives.”
As I recall, ISIS was beheading Americans prior to the issuing of this report. Believe it or not, but Muslims DID KNOW all about torture. We just endured the Ebola scare, the Health Care scare, the high taxes on job creator scare, and now we must become frightened because those who tortured and betrayed our basic American values will become known to the nation. Gee, as I recall the infamous Abu Ghraib pictures of torture were revealed during the administration of George Bush. This entire scare process is simply an attempt to transform Americans into frightened people who will support any action that violates the US Constitution. In other words, the good guy are those who tortured, and the bad guys are those who expose the good guys.
Welcome to frightened America in 2014
