Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Defamation of Religions: World Opoinion Survey


World Public Opinion reported the results of an international survey of opinion on defamation of religions taken between April 25 and July 9, ’09. As I would expect, support for free expression is greatest in western democracies and support for censorship is greatest in Islamic nations.

A five page pdf file revealing the survey’s methodology has one surprise: the U.S.A. was surveyed on line.

In the United States, the poll was an online survey drawn from a nationally representative sample of the Knowledge Networks online panel. This panel is probabilistically-based, selected from the population of US telephone households and subsequently provided with an Internet connection if needed.

Results:

The Methodology Report reveals that Hong Kong & Taiwan results were excluded from the averages, but does not explain the exclusions.  There is a trend toward heavy coverage of urban areas, which could result in a more liberal result.

Several nations stood out from the crowd with high levels of indecision/non-response.

Russia 26
Ukraine 30
Iraq 17
Indonesia 20

How would they have responded in an anonymous, non-confrontational setting?   What effect, if any, will this report of majority support for free expression have on the General Assembly vote on the Defamation of Religions resolution?

If you are on the side of freedom of expression, these on line petitions need your support Sign them and urge everyone you can hope to influence to sign them.

Flight 93 father denounces civilian trial for 9/11 terrorists


How would you feel about the Civilian court trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad & assoc. if you were the surviving parent, child or spouse of one of the victims of the Abomination? How would the continuous news reports  about jury selection, pretrial motions and outrageous statements by the defendants affect you?

What if the guilty get off on a technicality, having been granted undeserved Constitutional immunities and privileges reserved for citizens?  If, like me, you are ready to scream “HELL NO!!!”, then  sign this petition sponsored  by the ACLJ.

A military trial will do the same thing–give them justice, give them a chance to talk–but not out, you know, in the public.

Nicely framed and edited by KSTP Minneapolis: Second Burnett interview here. If only our government, with all its resources, could make 1/100th the sense of this honest patriot, but honesty and patriotism seem to be completely absent from the Obama/Holder makeup. Mr. Burnett says he will fight. Mr. Burnett is also trying to stop the Park Service from planting a giant Mecca-oriented crescent atop his son’s grave Video expose of what was originally called the Crescent of Embrace design, contains footage of Mr. Burnett and Alec Rawls (author of this blogburst post) at last year’s Memorial Project meeting: To join our blogbursts, just send your blog’s url.
