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.

That's the story, but it stinks to high heaven. How can legally changing his name constitute a crime? I doubt any LEO would want us or anyone actually to see the actual legal conditions of his parole.
He was jailed on trumped up charges because he exercised his freedom of speech and the koranimals complained, pure and simple.
Where is the ACLU?
<....”This is essentially Sharia, folks...an anti-blasphemy proclamation, not exactly a law as they have in Saudi Arabia but still stinkingly unconstitutional”....>
Indeed it is....and our own government is leading the charge!
I’m on my phone...I’ll give you link tomorrow...it’s great.Friggin weird how Facebook found and pulled it in like an hour. Maybe they have an algorithm computer that found I used the word Muslim in my comment. I’m not in anyway a conspiracy theorist but I post some racy pics and swear words on Facebook and they don’t get pulled. One Funny post about Muslims poof gone in an hour . Someone’s censoring even the mildest critique of Islam. I’m going to challenge Facebook in my post tomorrow. I’ll keep all appraised.
wasn’t that the title of the book?
"errors ceasing to be dangerous WHEN IT IS PERMITTED FREELY TO CONTRADICT THEM"
The DOJ is a joke thanks to the lawless Holder and the 0bama administration. They deserve the disdain and contempt that is coming their way.
Thank you for that, and good luck!
What is scary is that there are probably more people who care about getting “free stuff” from the gubmint than they are about their 1st Amendment rights.
I can no longer see the pig's head.
I love it when Hilarity ensues
Me, too. LOL

Neil Cavuto on FOX had a piece about college students cheering on the IRS for going after conservatives. That says a lot, too.
The Killian quotes come from this article. One of those ridiculous meetings is scheduled here in TN next Tues. because of a graphic posted on a city councilman's FB page a couple of months ago. "How To Wink At A Muslim". The news of this meeting has been like swatting a hornets nest with a lot of us locals.
To make matters worse, our governor is in cahoots with the jerks putting on the meeting........AMAC. American Muslim Advisory Council.
We are sadly is living is a very badly divided country.
The DOJ will simply be ignored thanks to the scandals.
Or simply practice your Christian faith in secret.
You can’t SAY anything bad about Christians or Jews.
But it’s ok to belong to a group that OPENLY ADVOCATES CUTTING THEIR HEADS OFF!
Regarding the video, there was nothing untrue in there. All those guys had done was put together a number of vignettes about Mohammad as they appear in the hadiths and the koran.
Interesting that Obama knew all about that very obscure video long before the events at Benghazi. Does anyone have any idea what his Freeper name is?
I thought that civil rights applied to individuals - not to a "religion". I guess they now apply to queers/lesbians/pedophiles/murderers/rapists/mooslems/Jew haters/Christian haters, and other low-life scum that clings so well to the Leftists butt cheeks.
Nope. When your browser sees a < or a > in your reply, it thinks that's the beginning of an HTML tag and treats it accordingly.
To be able to use < and > we have to fool the browser by using character entities instead.
All entities start with an ampersand and end with a semicolon. In between are letters or numbers identifying which entity we want to use. In the case of < the letters are lt for less than. And for > the letters are gt for greater than. The entity for < is < and for > it is >
You might want to head over to the FR HTML sandbox where you can practice this type of stuff.
Groups favored by liberals have Constitutional rights protecting them from being offended. Didn’t you know?
>>My husband is an LCMS (Lutheran) pastor. The congregation wants to know his vision for the congregation. He cant quite figure out how to tell them that his vision is for the congregation to keep professing and proclaiming the truth even when the culture, country, and congregational members would rather be trying to attract the culture by the coolness of their coffee and childcare.
I know where he’s coming from. I’m the Lay Leader of a UMC church and every time we start trying to create a “vision”, the people start talking about child care, coffee, and decorations. I keep bringing them back to discipleship and they just shrug and say, “Oh yeah. We do that pretty good.”
No....we don’t. *sigh*.
You’re right about the visible church. It is an abomination and is not something that people would be willing to be martyred for.
We’re trying to establish a spiritual partnership with a Methodist church in Cuba. We can learn so much from people in the persecuted churches and I want to go visit them and bring one of them up to visit us so people can hear what discipleship really means.
How about I post lines form the koran, which call for murder, terror, beheadings, etc. etc. etc.?
At least kadaffy duck was carrying his own umbrella, unlike the marxist homo occupying the WH.
Nah. If it is true, it isn’t an insult. If he did worse, it isn’t an insult.
Is that good enough? I'll be home all day.
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.
A surprising comment by Robert Downey, Jr.
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.
