A U.S. attorney in Tennessee is reportedly vowing to use federal civil rights statutes to clamp down on offensive and inflammatory speech about Islam.
Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, was quoted by the Tullahoma News this week suggesting that some inflammatory material on Islam might run afoul of federal civil rights laws.
"We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as were here, theyre going to be protected," Killian told the newspaper.
Killian, along with the FBI special agent that runs the Knoxville office, are set to speak next week to a special meeting with the local Muslim community, informing them about their rights under federal law.
"This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion," Killian said about the meeting. "This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are."
Killian pointed to a recent controversy where a local Tennessee politician posted a photo of a man aiming a shotgun at the camera with the caption "How to wink at a Muslim."

What about anti-Christian speech?
What about the 1st Amendment?
No PC here.
Muzzies have a particular fondness for blowing the limbs off of woman and lil children.
Will he protecting Catholics in a similar manner? Didn’t know you could be this stupid and be a U.S. Attorney. Does he know that there are free speech guarantees in the constitution. Who appointed this certified fool? Dopey man thinks he has the power to be a censor.
Enjoy it while you can.
Islam sucks dead donkey dung. Bring it on.
I’ve been looking for an actual image of a koran submerged in urine with pig grease on top.
Muslims have the freedom to practice their religion, and I have the freedom to point out that
Mohammed was a child rapist!
Ain’t the First Amendment grand?
I’m sick of this. It’s okay and even encouraged to badmouth conservative Americans and Christians but we can’t say anything about the murdering Muzzies? **** ‘em!

Things like this usually do come to ignominious ends in court, but not before garnering moral support among some more of the mindless low-informatzia. The idea is kind of like Alinsky, with rinse-repeat in moral/spiritual sewage until the place IS getting rotten.
Holy strings of profanity Batman!
This is getting serious.
US attorneys are appointed.....another grand gift from the anti romney crowd..
Have not seen the freedom from Offence Admendment yet. Though a lot of people play the card, its from a different deck.
Lets see... Anti-Muslim speach in TN..... Wow he’s gonna be busy for a while.....
A similar controversy erupt when a Coptic Christian man posted the trailer for an anti-Muhammed film online causing rioting and an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
Indeed, this means war.
