And the award for most craven misrepresentation of the First Amendment goes to...

The willfully obtuse Perfessor Instypundit who allegedly teaches law at some obviously negligent University that continues to employ him even though he dishes out this absolute bullshit on the internets. (No, don't click that link, I'll tell you what he said):
WHY BARACK OBAMA SHOULD RESIGN. Just for the record, this is what it looked like for a man who made a film that made the Obama Administration uncomfortable:
“Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”

When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
Of course what the mighty deceiver Insty doesn't bother to tell his deluded fan base is Nakoula was taken in for a voluntary interview with probation officials and has not been arrested or detained. And law enforcement waited until midnight to spare him the media mob camped outside of his home. And Nakoula was subsequently released and has since disappeared.

Neither did Perfessor Deluder tell his "Army of dumbed down Davids" that:
The man, who served 21 months in prison on fraud and identity theft charges, could face more prison time if it is determined his involvement in the film was a violation of his probation, which barred him from either owning or using devices with access to the Web without prior approval from his probation officer.
In other words, this was a criminal matter where the creep's free speech was not even an issue.

Adding, I would be somewhat less disgusted by Insty's perfidy if these creepy cons raised the free speech alarm when say Code Pink is arrested for protesting. Or when YouTube took down videos created by lefties which were damaging to their own endless trumped up outrages. But they applaud those because in wingnut world free speech applies only to them. If anyone criticizes them, that's a suppression of their free speech too.

But! He's using the word "Literally". Like literally Obama- Chicago Goons kidnapped an American and interred him at Fema Camps to be, literally, ruled over by Death Panels.

Right-Wingers are scum and Conservatism is Terrorism.

Of course Insty is wrong and fucking well knows it. He's just playing for the choir because he makes his money on fleecing the rubes.

And I assumed the "literally" emphasis was probably a dig at Joe Biden. But Insty is -- literally -- a crass opportunist who cares nothing about civil society as long as he can make some bucks on fomenting fake outrages.
