FITNA

As a public service to all our readers and in defense of free speech, here is Fitna, Geert Wilders' film which starkly shows how Islam and violence are linked.



Confirming the point of the film, the original Internet distributor of the film, LiveLeak was forced to pull the film after receiving death threats:
Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers. This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else.
The right to speak freely only has meaning if that right encompasses the right to say things that are unpopular -- even to Muslims. Those who urge that speech should be curtailed so as not to inflame Muslims and to show tolerance toward Islam are nothing more than surrender monkeys. "Better watch what you say, you know those crazy Muslims!" How spineless and condescending. Our most basic freedoms cannot and should not be limited because a particular group may be offended and respond with violence. I encourage everyone to watch the whole film though it contains some disturbing images. Frankly, I believe we should have a channel dedicated to showing nothing but images of the the World Trade Center, the beheading of Nick Berg, etc. to remind us why we must be resolve to combat those who seek to drag us back to the dark ages.

"Those who would surrender their basic freedoms for a little temporary safety, deserve neither."

-- Ben Franklin

It is the duty of every free citizen to refuse to bow to attempts to curtail their basic freedoms, even if it puts their lives, or the lives of their colleagues and families, at risk.

Otherwise the Enemy will win. It is that simple.

People have to understand that we are at war. Everyone is on the front lines. Everyone is a soldier. Even if they don't want to be. To quote a more unsavory character than Franklin, "You may not be interested in war. But war is most certainly interested in you."

It is your DUTY to resist. Duty is not about "I feel like it..." Duty is about what you have to do, what you obligated to do. And if you value Liberty, you are constrained to exercise and defend it - no matter the personal cost.

Kid Various may die - but he will never be a slave.
