‘Anti-Muslim’ Film Maker Gets A Year In Prison

From a cheering Associated Press:

Man behind anti-Muslim film sentenced to prison

By GREG RISLING | Wed November 7, 2012

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California man behind an anti-Muslim film that led to violence in many parts of the Middle East was sentenced Wednesday to a year in federal prison for probation violations in an unrelated matter, then issued a provocative statement through his attorney.

Obama was right when he said that elections have consequences. Also, note how quickly the AP had to claim that this sentence has absolutely nothing to do with the anti-Muslim ‘film.’

The sentence was the result of a plea bargain between lawyers for Mark Bassely Youssef and federal prosecutors. Youssef admitted in open court that he had used several false names in violation of his probation order and obtained a driver’s license under a false name. He was on probation for a bank fraud case.

If they are going to start throwing people in jail for using a false name, they are going to have a lot of people from the show business in their jails. Starting with Jon Stewart (nee Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz).

If they are going to start throwing people in jail with fake drivers licenses, they are going to have a lot of illegal aliens undocumented Democrats in their jails.

In fact, something tells us that the number of people serving time in jail in California for these two crimes (where they are releasing hardcore criminals who committed major crimes to free up jail space) is exactly zero.

Shortly after Youssef left the courtroom, his lawyer, Steven Seiden, came to the front steps of the courthouse and told reporters his client wanted to send a message.

"The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden, but he didn’t kill the ideology," Seiden said.

Asked what that meant, Seiden said, "I didn’t ask him, and I don’t know."

It seems pretty straight forward to us. And, to some extent, this sentence proves his point. We are witnessing the global reach of Sharia Law.

All parties agreed that none of the violations had to do with the content of "Innocence of Muslims," a film that depicts Mohammad as a religious fraud, pedophile and womanizer.

And we believe them. After all, look at all of the people sitting in California prisons for using aliases and having fake drivers licenses.

However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale argued Youssef’s lies about his identity have caused harm to others, including the film’s cast and crew. Deadly violence related to the film broke out Sept. 11 and spread to many parts of the Middle East.

"They had no idea he was a recently released felon," Dugdale said Wednesday. "Had they known that, they might have had second thoughts" about being part of the film…

This US Attorney doesn’t know much about the people involved in the film industry, apparently.

Seiden said his client admits to being the film’s scriptwriter but had no other involvement except what he described as being a "cultural adviser."

Youssef, 55, was arrested in late September, just weeks after he went into hiding when the deadly violence erupted. Enraged Muslims had demanded severe punishment for Youssef, with a Pakistani cabinet minister even offering $100,000 to anyone who kills him…

The AP somehow neglects to note that the newly elected Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt also demanded that Obama put the man in jail. Which, of course, immediately happened.

Federal authorities initially sought a two-year sentence for Youssef but settled on a one-year term after negotiating the plea deal with Youssef’s attorneys…

It’s just lucky for Nakoula that California doesn’t have capital punishment. After all, "the future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam." As Obama noted before the UN, back on September 25th.

In fact, it’s a wonder Obama didn’t just send a drone to kill him.

Seiden asked that his client be placed under home confinement, but Snyder denied that request. Youssef will spend his time behind bars at a Southern California prison.

Probably in solitary confinement. ‘For his protection.’

By the way, in the final paragraph of this long article we are told:

Court documents show Youssef legally changed his name from Nakoula in 2002, though when he was tried, he identified himself as Nakoula. He wanted the name change because he believed Nakoula sounded like a girl’s name, according to court documents.

So he is getting a year in solitary confinement for using another name without filling out the right forms.

And, of course, for having made a movie that slandered the Prophet.

    I believe this is Biblical.

    I wonder what the penalty is for using a fake name to buy guns and to smuggle them to violent mexican drug cartels? Did Brian Terry’s murderers use a fake name while committing their crimes?

    What is nerobama’s real name? We have seen documentation that his names are Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Soebarkah Obama, yet no official paperwork to document these name changes. Will the US Attorney handle these questions with as much zeal? To use U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale’s reasoning, damages have occurred: people may not have voted for nerobama if they knew his trus name.

    That didn’t take long. The guy is jailed for probation violations and he’s already at trial? What are Vegas odds that the guy slips in shower and hits his head 25 times or he gives himself a Columbian necktie by accident while shaving?
