Fox News is Watching

If you're a recent Muslim convert, fly often, and have said bad things about American foreign policy, watch out.

Fox News is watching.

Although, I don't understand what Fox News has against this woman. She's on their side. She openly says that the current government is communist. C'mon Fox News. Surely you have more guts than to try to get rid of someone who so clearly agrees with you!

Oh, that's right. She's Muslim. So obviously, she must be evil. Duh.

I quite liked this lady's response to one of Fox News' emails (which I, quite frankly, would have spammed and left quite alone, because I don't like random people emailing me)-
"“The so-called 'jihadists' you have mentioned are actually personal friends of my husband from childhood. In the video he was expressing his love and gratitude to his friends, who have died fighting for freedom. Just like any other American or European citizen who displays pictures of soldiers who have died on their videos. There is no difference in gratitude and love. It is just that your government has deemed these noble men as 'terrorists' because they are not on the same side. Least us not forget the Mujahideen who fought the Russians for the U.S. They were deemed 'heroes' and lead by Osama Bin Laden at that time, and now because the government says so... they are "terrorists.””


Quite possibly their biggest beef with this woman? She wouldn't accept a friend request from the reporter. On Facebook. Well, duh. Facebook even warns you with something like- "Unless you know this person, you should not friend them" or something like that.

The moral of this story is: be careful what you 'like' on Facebook. Because, after all...your postings and 'likes' can be proof of your terrorist tendencies. And Fox News is most definitely watching.

wow hadn't heard this story. So it was a facebook post that got her in trouble in the first place? um freedom of speech anybody?

I love her reply!

She does have a point.

Or more like freedom of free-thinking! This is seeming very 1984 (the book) to me. Scary!

So a person who reads this should do nothing? An agency feels if they did not say something to homeland Security, and then these people did something, would be found negligent and even at fault for not saying anything, is now corrupt and anti-free speech? Nobody said anything about Jared Lee Loughner, well almost nobody. Even after multiple trips to the guys home by police, even one on the day of the shooting, the sheriff takes no responsibility and blames talk radio and Rush Limbaugh. Are you kidding me? Free Speech? Some bloggers are so lost they follow rudderless fools.

Eman- the difference between Mr. Loughner and the woman in question is...quite large, actually. Mr. Loughner actually did something. He shot someone (and, by the way, was not a Muslim), multiple someones. This lady...liked a Facebook page. Oh no. Lock her away for all eternity for the simple crime of...exercising her rights online.

This is a free speech issue. I have a right to say whatever I want, as do you, and as does this woman. I can say that President Obama is an idiotic buffoon, and that's okay, because I have free speech. I can say Former President Bush and his VP, Cheney, should be tried for war crimes, and I can do that freely because my speech is free.

It seems to me that the only thing this woman is guilty of is speaking out against American imperialism, not liking some politicians, being Muslim, and marrying a man who once knew some people who turned into "insurgents."
