Via The Blaze:
The artist, Michael D’Antuono told Fox News that his “First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings.”
“We should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves,” he said.
D’Antuono blasted the conservative media for “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior.”
“The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically…My intent was not to compare him to Jesus,” he added.
And we wonder why our country is in the state it is in. Yes, I certainly agree in freedom of expression, my issue is the double standard. You arrest a guy for making a video, you have a President that says this:
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
So I ask you, what is the difference? Why is it acceptable to condemn those who ‘slander’ the prophet of Islam but not those who condemn Jesus? Mr. President, can you please explain this to me? Since I’ll never get a logical explanation from him, I consulted another source.
The moment self-righteousness takes over, you are dealing with dangerous psychopaths. Liberals are constantly accusing Christians of monumental self-righteousness for daring to engage in free speech or for voting in accordance with their religious beliefs. Compare that with the behavior of practitioners of the liberal religion. Liberals felt entitled to excuse Stalin’s murderous regime on the grounds that he was simply trying to build a Communist paradise. Because they passionately believed in Marxism, liberals thought they had a right to lie about being Soviet spies. Yeah, well, some people passionately believe in white supremacy. How about George Clooney making a sympathetic movie about true-believing white supremacists and the evil prosecutors who forced them to name names? If liberals could cut Stalin slack, there is no behavior they cannot excuse as justified by their passion.
