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!
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
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.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Maybe you’ll have to make your own. When you do, post it here so we can help distribute it.
Bill, you’re wrong. Not much else to say.
So then.... don’t post, don’t comment, don’t blog about Islam.
As Jed in Red Dawn said, “Don’t cry! Let it turn, let it turn, let it turn to something else”.
nobody here is free from criticism.
Guess I’ll start a Facebook account just to jerk em around.
Muslims are the enemy.
There are no moderate enemies.
What an absolute masterpiece!
Make one and send it to the Metropolitan Museum of “art”. They seemed to like that kind of stuff
Also elephant dung.
Yes, I imagine the federal government would have notified the Muslim that we are sorry if we have done anything to offend the Muslim and make him/her feel anger toward us, and will try to understand how our friendship with Israel and our dedication to the education of women in our society might be offensive to the distinguished religion of Mohammed.
And then the federal government would have asked if there was anyplace he/she would like to build a mosque, and promise to have the federal government try to ram it through the zoning laws of any given city....even near Ground Zero.
also affirmed was... offensive and inflammatory speech about Christians can get you 3 years of audit free IRS special "Customer Service"
As a resident of the fine fair state of Tennessee, I am appalled , embarrassed, outraged and just sick over the fact that this idiot attorney is from here! I am so sorry! This crap needs to be stopped!!!!!
ALL moslems are terrorists.Every single one.And that includes every single one currently present in the United States,be they present legally or illegally.ALL non US citizen moslems present here,legally or illegally,should be deported tomorrow.ALL US citizen moslems should have FBI surveillance 24/7/365 as should every single one of their "mosques" and other gathering places.
Have I made myself abundantly clear,Comrade Killian?
As we’ve seen in Europe and we’re slowly starting to see in America, you can have freedom of speech or you can have multiculturalism, but you can’t have both.
Unfortunately, our masters have chosen which will go, and it’s not what the people would have picked.
there are no constitutional rights for slaves of a dictatorship
"THEY CLING TO THEIR GUNS OR RELIGION",
I can proudly say with no fear whatsoever,
"THEY CLING TO THEIR PRESSURE COOKER BOMBS OR RELIGION"
Look you still have to atone for producing Al Gore you know.....
Arrgghhh. Don’t remind me. I will say again-this crap has got to be stopped.
Meet the Islamists Whove Infiltrated the Media:
Mr. US Attorney Killian, you can KMA.
Hey Killian - pervert Muslims sodomized and murdered Ambassador Stevens. So screw you moron.
Yet another asshole attacking the 1st Amendment.
You’re lucky. I have to atone for all the damned Kennedys, John Kerry, Barney Frank, Ed Markey, Cowan, Gerry Studds, Menino, Deval, Elizabeth Warren, and the list just goes on.
Living in this state, I sometimes feel like one of Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s zeks who continually gets “tenners” added on for just being a prisoner.
Never seems to stop.
