The new America: The maker of “Innocence of Muslims” has been sentenced to a year in prison for parole violation.
It might have been a crappy film and the filmmaker might have been a bum and a liar who did violate his parole. No matter. That is not really why he was arrested. In the new America he was arrested and sent to prison because he dared make a film that offended Muslims and that the Obama administration did not like.
In the new America don’t offend the government, or they will find a reason to jail you.
