In my new book The [Un]documented Mark Steyn... I have an entire section called "Last Laughs" - on banned jokes, canceled comedies, the plays we'll never see, the books we'll never read. On page 363, I quote Stephen Breyer, one of the genius jurists of America's Supreme Court, arguing that maybe free speech didn't extend to upsetting Islam - that provoking Muslims was a classic example of "shouting fire in a crowded theatre". And I commented:
More importantly, the logic of Breyer's halfwit intervention is to incentivize violence, and undermine law itself. What he seems to be telling the world is that Americans' constitutional rights will bend to intimidation...
It is a basic rule of life that if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it.
Speaking of, Eric Holder got away with Fast & Furious, and the perjury and false documents and piles of dead bodies, and we're getting more of the slimy bastard.
A rifle found in the abandoned car came from Attorney General Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious program, which put firearms into the black market on the Southern border in a failed attempt to track firearm circulation among Mexican drug cartels. The AK-47 style rifle was purchased in 2009 by Sean Christopher Seward, who pled guilty to trafficking firearms that he bought while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was monitoring his activities as part of Fast and Furious.
