Skip to comments.DOJ: Slam Muslims on Facebook, face feds
Posted on 05/31/2013 5:59:22 PM PDT by Mr. K
Bloggers beware. And those who use email, too. And those on Facebook. And Twitter. And anyone else using social media: Diss a Muslim and the Department of Justice will be on your case with the full weight of federal law.
The Obama administration, which is launching a series of Muslim Outreach Summits so that Islamists can tell federal officials how they better can serve that community, says it also is holding educational outreaches to let people know that Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal prosecution.

Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, is scheduled to appear at an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee next week, and will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media, according to a report in the Tullahoma News in Tennessee.
This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion, he said. This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.
He said everyone needs to understand that Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.
After all, he said, while some Muslims may blow up buildings, hijack airliners and kill thousands, there are terrorists of other religions, too.

Did I say I was leaving? How could you be optimistic when they want to enact something like this? We’re talking federal lawsuits for saying Muhammad was a pedophile.
Thanks for the link. I read the article and it’s still pretty hazy as to just how internet postings could violate anyone’s civil rights.
Of course, there is that UN resolution the Muslim nations have been pushing for years which I think of as the “Can’t say nothing bad about Islam” resolution. And the Obama gang does support it, along with anything else that excuses Islam, or attempts to prevent the truth about Islam from being widely disseminated. There are attempts at all levels to prevent any criticism, or factual discussion of Islam and its history and present.
It’ll be interesting to hear reports from the Tennessee meeting next Tuesday and maybe some more specific explanations about internet postings can violate civil rights.
Hard to enforce.
Please feel free.
Bring it on Feds.. there are many many Muslim terrorist and Muslims who support terrorism both overtly and covertly. Come get you dirty Feds. Question me and I’ll let the whole world know.. arrest me and my family will let the whole world know. If this is what our country has come to then I’ll be happy to be one of the first to fall on the sword. Stupid pigs.
Eric al-Hodda, you swarmy little p***k. You aren’t my Attorney General, you a**h**e, come and get me. Islam the religion of pi**. I am sick of this nonsense, Christians and Jews getting stepped on and Islamof**ks getting a free pass. Go to HELL, HOLDER!
No, you didn't, but I fail to see the point in continuing to participate in a group of activists and fighters, when you've already decided that there's no use, and that 'all is lost'.
Not saying that you're guilty of this, but people on our side who incessantly post messages of doom and gloom, may as well go work for the enemy. The debilitating effect of those messages causes the precise effect upon us that our enemies want.
I agree with you whole-heartedly that they’re stretching it by saying internet postings could violate anyone’s civil rights. You’re probably on target with the UN’s ridiculous resolution . . . that’s most likely what they plan to use to back themselves up with this garbage.
Since this has hit the internet and so many know about it now, it could be an interesting turnout. TN passed an anti-shariah law bill and now these boobs are pushing shariah law.
I’ll be watching for articles afterwards to post, as others will I’d say.
Got it. Thanks~
First Amendment, anyone?
Well, at least he was a snappy dresser!
I don’t even know what picture you are talking about.
But anything I make and post here is free use. Your politeness to ask is nice.
The one on islam
Oh, I stole that...
Hey Holder, where’s your outreach to Christians and Jews?
If action was taken, it would have been taken when the government was trying to pass the farming laws way back when. After the Bonus Army fiasco. Jim Crow Laws. The Miller decision. National Firearms Act. When it was still difficult to intercept the other side’s communications, and when communications still traveled slowly.
Now the government has empty camps/prisons, with plenty of conspiracy theories surrounding them; our resident is going to sign our rights away to the UN on Monday. I doubt the senate is going to put up a fight at all. Maybe we’ll get token resistance, but that’s it.
It’s kinda difficult when they know where you live, where you work, what you do at work, how much you make, your kids’ hobbies, your own hobbies, your favorite meal or drink, your daily routine, how you take your coffee, your driving infractions, and most especially, what you think about dear leader.
This is why I’m a pessimist. They can bring air power and armored vehicles to bear in a short amount of time, and that’s just local police forces. Wait until the national guard comes along, or his national security force that’s just as strong and well funded as the military. They can intercept communications at will, without need for a warrant.
Looks like you’ve already been overwhelmed by the shock and awe of Big Brother’s sound and fury. In your mind, he’s omnipotent and irresistible, therefore you may as well get on your knees and beg for mercy.
Never mind the fact that as few as fifteen thousand hard core jihadists held the American military down in Iraq for nearly ten years. 100 million armed American citizens are somehow no match for them.
You need to quit scaring yourself.
Of course, this means one could face Feds for bashing Muslims anywhere. On an online forum, it is frighteningly easy to forget that true anonymity is a myth. Ergo, threats of violence against anyone are never a bright idea.
