All Quiet on the Hollywood Front

With Muslims worldwide doing their best to stifle free speech with riots and death threats over a series of drawings of Muhammed, the question begs to be asked: Where are our beloved celebrities who are the first to complain if they think their free speech rights are being violated? The following are all celebrities who have talked about the importance of free speech (and some said they were "afraid" to speak their minds):

Martin Sheen
Susan Sarandon
Tim Robbins
Sheryl Crow
Michael Moore

As far as I know, some of these people may have been subject to a negative article and a boycott or two, but none had their homes burned down or received death threats.

Their silence is deafening. And telling. When the shoe is on the other foot, it doesn't seem to squeak as much. I guess this also means there isn't a movie about the riots and what sparked them in the works.

Oh, and a side note: no comment from the ACLU?

free speech rights stop when the speech incites violence or endangers property and lives. a muslim cleric was sentenced to prison for his harmful rhetoric, there is a limit.

Commenting on these riots would mean putting their necks on the line ..... literally.

I saw even a CNN reporter interviewing a mullah or iman and he got frustrated with the guy and confronted him of not answering the questions and asked him why the Muslims want us to 'submit' to their religion. Even CNN.

It's gotten serious now and I don't think we (the American public) are in the mood to tolerate their nonsense.

They are like little pets. We watch their little exploits and laugh at their antics. We put up with them when there's no real harm they can do. But right now, we don't want to hear from them.

It's one thing for them to run their mouths about America. It's a whole nuther thing for them to critize Islam....

It was kind of a sarcastic question...you know, the people who cry that their free speech rights are being trampled when really, they can spout off all they like and not suffer truly damaging consequences. Thanks for taking the time to comment, though!

Pam...I understood it was a sarcastic question - I guess I was just runing off at the mouth (or fingers) agreeing with you.

Didn't mean to come across so intense! Sorry.

I guess I misunderstood the tone of your answer, so no hard feelings!
