AntiMuslim Filmmaker Has Talk With Feds

The filmmaker thought responsible for the antiMuslim hate film that spurred riots and violent demonstrations throughout at least 23 countries has come in for voluntary talks with federal agents. Nakoula Basselley Nakaula was on probation for bank fraud and had been ordered not to use a computer or to use aliases as terms of his probation. But, he could now potentially be sent back to prison for violating those terms of probation.

In Los Angeles, the office that manages the terms of probation will review the actions of Nakoula Basselley Nakaula and make a decision whether to arrest him and send him back to either jail or prison.

Nakoula was born in Egypt, however is a Coptic Christian rather than a Muslim. He had a prior arrest and conviction for being in possession of materials to produce meth. He also violated probation terms in that case, and was sent back to jail for one year after serving his original sentence of one year.

The actors in the film claim to have been duped into making a harmless and noncontroversial film, but then hateful dialog was dubbed into the film making the film into a form of antiMuslim hate speech. The White House and State Department were quick to denounce the film, however with only half facts, both candidate Mitt Romney and some political conservatives were quick to claim that the White House was “apologizing” to Muslims and not supporting free speech, unaware that the filmmaker was a twice convicted criminal, and his role in the film might have been in violation of his latest probation terms. It also was one of the first times that a major presidential candidate spoke out in critical terms during an international crisis. Romney was heavily criticized by most political analysts of his move, however, in the short term he might have strengthened his hand with some very conservative voters for offering up his awkward comments during the international crisis.

Likely, this entire international event will be a main subject of discussion on the Sunday talk shows.

    I’m just wondering whether Mitt Romney’s campaign or the GOP and their billionaire/millionaire friends funded that anti-Muslim video to whip up anti-American sentiments around the world so he could go in front of the cameras pretending as if he is a polished foreign policy expert. How can anyone explain the fact that he was already mugging for the camera six hours before the actual attack on the embassy in Benghazi, as if he knew all along that something like that was going to happen. It’s not far fetched because they can afford it. Judging from the behavior of the Republican mouth pieces right now, they seem to be rooting for more attacks on U.S. embassies around the world. I can just imagine that somewhere in the U.S., the Republican operatives are clapping their hands every time another American dies as a result of all these violent events. Wouldn’t that be treason?

  • Hello Van. I appreciate your opinions here, although I disagree here. Likely, things are just as they seemed here, some extremist anti-Muslim fanatics including this Egyptian-born twice convicted criminal associated himself with a handful of extremist ultra-fundamentalist Christians, producing an outlandish hate film, that unfortunately got played up by some Muslim news journalists, which then got played up by extreme fundamentalist Muslim Imans, which resulted in riots and violent demonstrations, but alsoso gave members of an al Qaeda off-shoot group the cover for a well armed attack on American Embassy in Libya with rocket propelled grenades and other weapons.

  • The First Amendment dies when police knock on your door at midnight because of your exercise of free speech.

    The parole violation is that he used a pseudonym on the internet when he posted the Innocence of Muslims trailer. Is there a person on the planet who believes that half a dozen or more cops would have shown up that this guys door in the middle of the night for a parole violation of he had used a fake name to post a cute kitten video?
