Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Mitt Romney is right — the Obama Administration is continually equivocating when it comes to condeming the Islamic attacks on our embassies in Libya and Egypt. Every single statement they release begins with some variation on "the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others".
"While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants," Obama said.
"The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation."
What they both mean, of course, is the United States opposes any denigration of Islam. Put a crucifix in urine and the United States Government will send you checks courtesy of the National Endowment for the Arts.
And if they stood behind the religious beliefs of Jews they wouldn't get all tongue-tied whenever someone asks if Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.
For that matter, an Administration which honored religious beliefs wouldn't use Obamacare to trample all over the Catholic Church.
So take note, all of you who harshly condemn anti-homosexuality religious beliefs, "The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others." Yeah, I'm looking at you Curt.
But one guy makes a movie telling the truth about Islam's pedophile prophet and our government's first reaction is to tweet an apology. Then the clown show on MSNBC calls for the filmmaker to be arrested. Because Obama State Media never learned the true meaning of "Free Speech".
So what did Mitt Romney actually say that was so terrible? I'm guessing the diplo-dhimmis got their shorts into a knot over this part:
"I also believe the Administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt instead of condemning their actions. It's never too early for the United States Government to condemn attacks on Americans, and to defend our values. The White House distanced itself last night from the statement, saying it wasn't 'cleared by Washington.' That reflects the mixed signals they're sending to the world."
So I ask you, what's wrong with that? Nothing! It's a refreshingly straightforward statement. Which is of course why it makes the Obamabots so uncomfortable.
The Smart Diplomacy crowd may have "distanced" themselves from their embassy's original statement, but the mealy-mouthed "we love Islam and hate people who hate it" nonsense survives, and flourishes.
They're still blaming the movie. As if an obscure movie, that no one had ever heard of, with no distribution deal, and no chance of making it to HBO, suddenly agitated millions of peaceful Muslims, compelling them to take to the streets with violence on their minds and hatred in their hearts.
Believe that, and I've got a bridge in Brooklyn you can have, cheap.
As for the true motivation behind these "spontaneous" protests, Walid Shoebat translated the Arabic writings which encouraged people to join the demonstrations. Unsurprisingly the attacks were planned days ago, and set for September 11th.
Gee, I wonder why Muslims might want to attack America on September 11th? Any guesses folks?
The Arabic sources show that this was in support of al-Qaeda day, posting al-Qaeda flags and some of the chanting was about reminding Americans that there are many al-Qaedas (ie Nour Party). Americans should ask themselves a hard question:
If our enemy is al-Qaeda exclusively, then why is an entire political party — which makes up over 20% of Egypt's new Parliament — aligning with al-Qaeda?
Obama doesn't want you to ask that question. He wants you to ask why Mitt Romney is criticizing him. And his lapdog media happily obliges. Obama held a "press conference" today, at which he took no questions. Mitt Romney held a press conference too, at which he was grilled about his criticism of Obama.
Then Obama jetted off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. The family of Ambassador Stevens surely appreciates the president's committment to duty, honor, and re-election. His autopen-signed form letter of condolence is already in the mail, so from Barry's perspective, this chapter is closed.
Back on the don't-insult-Islam front, I'll leave you guys with one last bit of information. Obama's top civil rights official recently refused to support freedom of speech when asked about enacting laws which criminalize blasphemy.
President Barack Obama's top civil rights official repeatedly declined to support religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, despite repeated questioning from Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who chairs the House's constitution subcommittee.
Tom Perez, the progressive who runs the Justice Department's civil rights office, refused to answer the questions posed by Franks.
"Will you tell usE that this administration's Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?" Frank asked four times.
Perez refused to answer, saying "it is a hard question, in the sense that when you make threats against someone."
If the Obama Administration won't defend free speech in front of Congress, does anyone here believe they'll defend it when faced by an angry Mohammedan mob?
