What has America become?
Read this entire creepy article.
Here's a few points that really freaked me out:
"Youssef pleaded no contest in 2010 to bank fraud charges for using phony
Social Security numbers to open bank and credit card accounts,
according to court documents. He was sentenced to 21 months in federal
prison and ordered not to use computers or the Internet for five years
without prior authorization."
That is nuts. How can a government possibly expect to supervise compliance with such a ridiculous condition? Might as well have forbid him to eat chocolate ice cream for all the good a condition like that does.
Here is what a US Assistant District Attorney-one Robert Dugdale-had to say:
"While denying the 14-minute video clip "Innocence of Muslims" -- also
known as "Desert Warrior" -- had anything to do with the probation
matter, Dugdale said Youssef had "betrayed" the actors who appeared in
the film by not telling them he was a "recently released convicted
Since when do US Assistant District Attorney's get involved with personal betrayals? Nuts.
"Also, before uploading the film -- which portrays
the Prophet Muhammad as a womanizer and child abuser -- Youssef had
dubbed inflammatory dialogue in place of words actually spoken by the
actors, Dugdale said.
"He made that choice for other people," the prosecutor said."
"Such behavior illustrated Youssef's "long-standing pattern of deception," Dugdale said."
So now dubbing a video is a federal crime in America? NUTS.
Few people care about this story at all, but I certainly won't forget it.
I actually think President Obama's relatives in America have been involved in just as many disgraceful legal shenanigans than this two-bit conman film-making schmuck.
