Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both promised not to launch political attacks for one day: yesterday, September 11. It was a nice gesture.
But then some random
Israeli filmmaker in California decided to go trolling and made an inflammatory video criticizing Islam, which caused all hell to break loose Egypt and Libya yesterday, because people in the Middle East apparently have not yet learned that the most effective way to deal with trolls is just to ignore them.
As protestors were organizing — but before the compound was breached or anyone was hurt — the U.S. Embassy in Cairo tweeted their condemnation of the video, saying “We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims” (the Tweet was later deleted).
Whoa, whoa, whoa, someone vaguely related to the Obama administration tweeted something about “hurt feelings”? Someone basically apologized… to Muslims? ZOMG, Romney even wrote a book called “No Apology.” How could the Republicans possibly let this go??? Oh wait, 9/11. Dammit! Stupid national day of mourning.
I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.
Reporters initially refrained from making it public, but then 15 minutes later, the Romney campaign decided “ehhh, screw it, this is too good to wait.” Saul emailed back telling reporters the embargo was lifted and the statement could be published immediately.
Mitt! You made it until 10:24pm. You were so close!!!
