Dangerous precedents: Don’t slander the prophet of Islam, says Obama. But ‘Piss Christ?’ Totally fine

Yes, what about that? As Twitchy reported, President Obama addressed the United Nations today and he shamefully said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” He also once again harped on the crummy video that he and his administration have used as a pretext to explain the violence at our embassies and the murders at our Libyan consulate. He is continuing to condemn the exercise of free speech more  than the terrorist (a word he has trouble saying) attacks themselves.

As Twitchy also reported, President Obama only condemns some free speech; his administration has remained silent on the return of “Piss Christ” to New York City.

Yes. So which dangerous precedent is it, President Obama? Do you seek to quash all free speech or only the free speech that you use as a false pretext to excuse barbarism? Twitter users demand answers.

What say you, President Obama? Will the press question him on this? Perhaps members of the media can yell “Packers,” again. That seems to be the only way he’ll answer a question.
