Make the wrong video, get arrested

Make a not-government-approved video, get arrested.

From The Smoking Gun:

Investigators have not yet provided details about how [the producer of the film trailer Innocence of Muslims, AKA the Muhammad Movie Trailer, Nakoula Basseley] Nakoula allegedly violated probation, but it seems clear that his involvement in the “Innocence of Muslim” production is central to the government’s new charge.

Next thing you know, he’ll be charged with a thought crime. Oh wait, he effectively is.

Nakoula had restrictions place on his internet usage and was not allowed to use anything but his real name as terms of his probation following a 2010 conviction for bank fraud.

So while we can’t condone a possible probation violation, it would seem the restrictions were likely based on Nakoula’s bank fraud and were not intended to suppress his freedom of speech.

Nakoula should have made a video where instead of looking something like a bewhiskered Randy Quaid (on green-screen and with an overdeveloped libido), Muhammad is instead honor-murdering females, practicing affirmative action, and stoning homosexuals. That would have placed Uncle Sugar/Big Brother in a real moral bind.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
