I have an exit question after we take a look at this small story.
Ricky Gervais was pig-piled on Twitter after giving his friendly advice – that celebs shouldn’t keep nude photos on their computers if they don’t want them stolen.
Here are some typical responses-
@rickygervais how about stop attacking victims and instead direct your attitude toward the hackers who broke the law & invaded their privacy
I wonder how these same people feel about gun owners who have their guns stolen from their homes?
There is legislation that is constantly floated that would hold the gun owners responsible for the theft of their firearms.
A federal appeals court ruled against a group of Christian evangelists who were forced to leave an Arab-American street festival in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2012.
Festival-goers threw rocks and water bottles at members of the Bible Believers group when they denounced Islam and called Mohammed a false prophet.
In response, Wayne County authorities threatened to ticket the Christian group if they did not leave.
On Wednesday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals backed county authorities, ruling 2-1 that police were only trying to keep public order.
“The video from the 2012 festival demonstrates that (evangelists’) speech and conduct intended to incite the crowd to turn violent. … Although robustly guarded by the First Amendment, religious conduct remains subject to regulation for the protection of society,” the three-judge panel wrote in its ruling.
But one dissenting judge said the police should have tried to control the lawbreakers rather than stifle free speech.
Can the learned judges point to one instance where Muslim speech was regulated for the protection of society?
On Thursday, Modoc and Siskiyou counties in California, adjacent to Oregon, formally requested state officials to allow them to secede from the state and form a new state to be called Jefferson, according to the Sacramento Bee.
The two counties’ governments directly petitioned the secretaries of the state Assembly and Senate after they had already submitted a petition to the secretary of state asserting that they weren’t represented strongly enough in the state.

Teaching about the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood is essential to counter-terrorism prosecutions, and the challenges facing the U.S. today.
A political alliance of 75 organizations led by Islamist supporters has published a letter demanding the removal of “anti-Muslim” material from FBI training. This purported objective is incontestable, but the thinly concealed objective is to end instruction about the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
The letter refers to legitimately offensive instances of anti-Muslim content in FBI documents, specifically a 2005 memo that used the fake name of “Mohammed Raghead.” Derogatory language has no place in governmental instruction.
How many countries in the world respect the rights of the individual, reject authoritarianism, and enjoy a civil society?
To be fair, that’s a trick question. No country does, though a few come close. Perhaps Canada, Israel, and the U.S. for starters (though in the latter case, said attributes appear to be eroding on a daily basis). Full Story
(NEWSER) – In a disturbing—not to mention extremely complicated—story, a Baton Rouge, La., talk show host was allegedly shot and killed by his son-in-law, who was also thought to be his lover, according to police.
The son-in-law, Matthew Hodgkinson, survived what Sheriff Brett Stassi says was likely a murder-suicide attempt Wednesday. He’s now in critical condition in the hospital, the Times-Picayune reports.
To make things more confusing, the murder occurred while the local TV host, Scott Rogers, 52, was facing an investigation over whether he was the person he claimed to be. The state recently took two children away from Rogers: One was an adopted son and the other was in the process of being adopted. It’s not clear why they were taken, but Stassi says Rogers “used his fake name to get the adoption.”
Rogers is originally from the UK, where he ran a dance studio; Hodgkinson was a student there. County officials suggested the place was cultlike and dangerous for kids, the Bury Free Press notes. Rogers was cleared of child molestation charges in the early 1990s. Though Hodgkinson is married to Rogers’ daughter, Stassi says the connection was simply a means of getting Hodgkinson US citizenship.
How long are we going to give Algore before we have him executed?
Yep, that seems about right.

“Radical” is such a ridiculous adjective. It is pure Islam, authentic Islam — there is nothing radical or un-Islamic about jihad.
Obama’s father was a Muslim, which de facto makes him a Muslim, and he is considered Muslim in the Muslim world. Take, for example, Meriam Ibrahim. Her mother was Christian and raised her a Christian. She married a Christian, lives in America and has Christian children. But when she returned to Sudan to visit family, she was arrested for “apostasy” — in other words, for leaving Islam. She was nine months pregnant and forced to give birth with her legs shackled, leaving her baby deformed. This is Islamic law. She is considered a Muslim even though she has never been a Muslim, because her father was a Muslim.

I think if historians weren’t so into self-preservation they would accurately pinpoint it to the day that leftist douchebaggery wasn’t immediately stomped out the moment it saw the light of day.
This was radical at one time. Now it’s completely normalized.
