Excerpts from REX MURPHY:  National Post, January 10/15

Where was this “we” when a video critical of Islam was mendaciously identified as the “cause” of the terror attack on Benghazi?  Where was “we” when Hillary Clinton went on Pakistani television to declaim against this “reprehensible” video and revile its maker, and at the Benghazi  victim’s funerals said:  “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”  Where was “we” when the filmmaker was arrested, while to this day the butchers of Benghazi roam the Earth unmolested?

This part of the world has a sack full of pieties when it comes to free speech, but its own actions, and frequently its own words, put the lie to all of them.  Bowing to ruthless protest has become a habit.  Labelling speech some people simply do not wish to hear as “hate speech “succeeds in silencing it.”

The North American media and so-called comedy shows make a tiresome habit of slandering or crudely defaming the majority faith of the North American continent, all the while lying – yes lying – that they are equal opportunity offenders.
