Which Words Lead to Violence

 Last week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch caused a minor kerfuffle when she told those at a Muslim-American dinner that when free speech “edges toward violence” when employed those who use “anti-Muslim rhetoric,” the Justice Department will “take action.” When it was pointed out that this sounded as if the administration was prepared to try to punish offensive speech rather than actual criminal acts, Lynch “recalibrated” that unconstitutional threat and said, “we prosecute deeds, not threats.” That’s a relief, especially coming from Lynch, who spent the days after the San Bernardino shooting in denial about the Islamist ideology of the killers, even as the rest of the government admitted that there was no doubt about their motives.

    Lynch? That name is an aggression in itself!

    If she wants to head the Justice Department she should have been made to change her threatening name first!

    Emperor Barry’s new Vizier of Justice Loretta is used to opining in the sealed to outsiders red fascist echo chambers that are her “safe spaces”. No need to fault her for honestly offering up what is in her heart.
    Sun Tzu says “When you know your enemy ……………”

  • Ms Lynch, during a recent “Muslim Advocates” Dinner you told attendees, the Justice Department would take action against “anti-Muslim rhetoric” and “violent talk.” You went on to say “Now obviously this is a country that is based on free speech … but when it edges towards violence … when we see that, we will take action.”

    Well how about taking action on the following:

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them”.

    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers”.

    Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah”.

    Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger … they should be murdered or crucified”.

    Loretta Lynch is a treasonous criminal.
