No, really. The Pentagon has jumped on the disgusting murderer-apologist train.
The media is reporting that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff called Pastor Jones. Why? Oh, just a little attempt to silence him. They tried to get him to consider withdrawing support for the film that appeasers are using as an excuse for barbarians to attack our embassies.
The usual suspects have blamed the film for the barbaric behavior, resulting in deaths, at our embassies. And vile lefties have called for Pastor Jones’ death for the crime of supporting the movie. They don’t need no stinkin’ free speech!
Yesterday, the embassy in Cairo condemned free speech in a fit of apologist idiocy. The White House feigned condemnation of the embassy’s statement, claiming it wasn’t cleared. Well, was Gen. Dempsey’s phone call cleared? President Obama needs to answer. Is this more of his “smart politics?” Diminishing free speech and attempting to appease those who seek to kill us by making Americans shut up?
Lapan: Dempsey called Pastor Jones, re film, "tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause." Asked to consider pulling support.—

Unreal! Full statement from Marine Col. Lapan:
“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen Martin E. Dempsey, spoke by phone this morning with Pastor Terry Jones. In the brief call, Gen Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause. He asked Mr Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film.”
The violence the film will cause?
Remember when Christians rioted & murdered ppl after blockbuster Da Vinci Code said Jesus wasn't divine & married Mary Magdalene? Oh wait.—

Seriously, are we in the Appeasement Twilight Zone? Free speech, shmee speech! We have cowering and craven caving to do! Also, cotton candy and unicorn dust to pass out!
Absurd CJCS Gen Dempsey called Pastor Terry Jones. Why give film or extremist any credibility by having US top general acknowledge both?—

They are supplicating themselves so low at the altar of appeasement, that they have the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff contact Pastor Jones.
It’s much like when Senators Reid and Graham blamed Pastor Jones, instead of the people perpetrating the acts of violence, after deadly riots in Afghanistan when Pastor Jones burned a Koran. They, too, sought to quash free speech rather than hold people accountable for their own actions.
Citizens are outraged, and rightly so.
Our government, headed by Appeaser in Chief Obama, is seeking to quash the freedom of speech by condemning the exercise thereof. This spits on the principles upon which this nation was founded and it spits on those fighting, and dying to protect that freedom.
Beyond shake fisty and outrageous. This is unconscionable.
