Obama Administration Jumps Into Action – Investigates Anti-Mohammad Filmmaker …Update: Far Left Offers Assistance

The feds jumped into action yesterday and brought in the anti-Muhammad filmmaker for questioning.
The AP reported:

A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff’s station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Don Walker said.

Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

Walker said Nakoula traveled voluntarily in a squad car with deputies.

For the record… The anti-US 9-11 protest in Egypt was planned before the film hit the airwaves.
The Obama Administration should know this by now.

Of course… The left is assisting the government and Islamists in exposing the filmmakers.

    This is like living in 1930s Germany. The Obama Reich will imprison you for dissent.

    That’s right DC, go after the little guy that supposedly made the crummy little video. Don’t go after the guy in the White House and his buddies that have made the policies weakening the position of the United States and are trying to stop the 1st amendment as well as helping toppling the previous leaders of those countries and helping the Muslim Brotherhood gain power and control. Going after the guy because he went against the terms of his of his release. Yes he should have been a good boy, but putting the blame on him instead of where it should be is wrong. Again, appease the Muslims….well, they won’t be appeased that easily and will want more bloodshed as that is the way they are.

    Unless they think he was conspiring with the Islamists I don’t understand what law might have been broken.

    The media just had to put that statement in there that the guy was convicted of financial crimes. What does that have to do with the film? If this guy is convicted of anything involving this film then I say go after all the people involved with the anti Christian films that have glutted the market. Don’t stop at that either, go after, estpecially, the filmamaker who made the film about Bush’s assassination. Although not religious, that film was incitement to violence against a sitting president.

    I went over to huff post. The super majority of the posts were calling this guy the killer of Americans and were calling for prosecution. Also a good number of posts were calling for limiting free speech. The liberal elite has jumped the shark. I only hope an adult shows up at some point.

    Note: they’re not investigating him over the film. He was convicted of online fraud. Part of his probation is he is not allowed online. If he uploaded this he violates his parole and gets sent to jail.

    Amazing. They can do this but Arizona isn’t allowed to enforce laws without being called Nazis.

  • aine

    Well, now the left is against porn?! Hah! I guess we have arrived at the end times.

  • wtd

    Ann Barnhardt: I demand to be arrested for blasphemy. Now.

    Michelle Bachmann @ Values Voter Summit puts to rest the idea this film has anything to do with ME Muslim unrest – by detailing the efforts of the OIC to purge our national security training manuals, criminalizing criticism of Islam, shaming Americans who identify the enemy etc.

  • donh

    Nakoula plead no contest in 2010 for bank fraud and was ordered to pay more than $700,000 in restitution. He was also sentenced to 21 months in federal prison. Many records are sealed but prosecutors wanted a longer prison term and pointed out he used various aliases including some of his own relatives’ identities to open 600 fraudulent credit accounts.

    He was also arrested in 1997 and charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. He plead guilty and was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years probation.

    As part of his parole from his last felony, he was barred from assuming aliases and using computers or the Internet for five years without prior approval from his probation officer.

    The film won’t put him back in jail but violating his parole conditions might.. particularly since he is a twice over ex-con and has been convicted of two felonies.

    ” The left is assisting the government and Islamists in exposing the filmmakers.”

    With the Obama regime in power is there a difference?
    The leftist propaganda spreaders (MSM) do this every day.

  • crackermike

    People ask what law the guy broke. Sharia, obviously.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

    Can you spell scapegoat?

  • Jean

    If Nakoula is guilty of bank fraud what does that make Obama guilty of?

    Bribery, extortion, treason, etc, etc, etc.
