The Religion of Perpetual Outrage has been with us for a long time, but somehow the Obama administration apparently didn’t notice. According to Barack and his enablers, turmoil across ten or more Muslim countries, the storming of American embassies and consulates, the burning of countless American flags and the murder of an American ambassador are all due to a stupid video on YouTube. Sure. Haul the video guy in for questioning, pay for an apologetic ad in Pakistan, and they will be mollified. Not the Muslim fanatics, but American reporters–which is all that Obama cares about.
Michael Ramirez provides a little historical context. He could have included many more events, like the cartoons, the false Koran/toilet rumor, the teddy bear, and many others.
