ISIS has claimed responsibility for the terror attack on a Garland, Texas event titled, ‘Draw Muhammad’. At least one of the terrorists shot in the attempted assault has been convicted of terrorism in the past. It is with this as a backdrop that an MSNBC host and his so-called terror analyst blamed the holders of the event for their own attack, with the guest claiming that Christians and Jews “have done the exact same thing”.
Hardball’s Chris “Thrill Up My Leg” Matthews and his guest, analyst Evan Kohlmann did some bizarre analysis on the attempted slaughter by two ISIS followers at a Garland, Texas event the evening before last.
The event in Texas was a cartoon contest – ‘Draw Muhammad’ – and it was sponsored by Pamela Geller. Also present was Geert Wilders, the former Dutch legislator who has been fighting unfettered immigration of Muslims.
Matthews said, How ’bout taunting, how ’bout provoking, how ’bout daring…how do you see the causality factor here?
Kohlmann said, “It’s great to have freedom of speech…but these people are not standing by that principle. Hatred for other people. That’s their guiding light. That’s what they do. They are intentionally trying to provoke a response from the Muslim community.”
He went on to say it was “predictable” and compared it to shouting “fire” in a crowded theater.
“[If] you incite people and you say nasty invective about peoples’ ancestors, and their religious symbol, there are a couple of crazy nutcases that are going to come out of the woodwork and try to take action over that,” Kohlmann said, “but that has nothing to do with Islam.”
“There are Christians, there are Jews, there are plenty of other people from other faiths who have done the exact same thing. So we have to be very careful here. When you provoke people and incite people, that doesn’t make violent actions right but don’t be surprised that it happened. And these people are not only putting Americans here at home at risk, they’re putting service people abroad at risk.”
If we have contests like this, we “make them feel unwelcome”, he said.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a hate group themselves, called the event a hate event.
These people appear to want to live in a country where we have to be fearful of insulting Muhammad. They are the same people who thought the Virgin Mary in elephant dung and PissChrist were works of art.

What Matthews and Kohlmann are asking for is PC speech controlled by totalitarian theocrats s as if they will ever be satisfied.
Since that won’t satisfy the Islamists, what comes next? If even one person is insulted, do we deserve to die, go to jail, get fined? Where would it stop once the First Amendment is gone?
I don’t remember any beheadings after Elephant Dung Mary went on display nor do I remember any rampaging Jews after assaults on synagogues. It’s hard to know what Matthews and his terror expert are talking about.
Matthews and Kohlmann must have gone back to the Dark Ages for their information.
ISIS took credit for the attack, they are in every state of the union according to Jim Comey, the FBI director. Radical Islamists want to destroy our way of life and these leftist clowns want us to keep adapting to their insane demands.
The real hate is aimed at Christians and Jews by these PCers.
