Blasphemy Rocks!

Robert Fulford, writing in praise of not holding your tongue lest you insult/offend/hurt someone's precious feelings, observes that
A charge of blasphemy works as a screen hiding the schemes of would-be rulers who dream of Taliban-level dictatorships. The masses in the Arab countries learn of Danish cartoons and other blasphemies when they are told about them by rabble-rousers. 
In democracies the charge of blasphemy should not be treated with sympathetic understanding, as it is so often. It is the enemy of tolerance as it is the enemy of modernity.
So why are Hillary and Barry so keen to embrace the OIC's sharia-based anti-blasphemy rules? Don't they know, or if they know, don't they care, that when the U.S. synchs itself with Islam, free speech and the other freedoms it assures won't survive?

Ah, but the cultural-Marxist Left sees the demise of free speech in the West as a feature, not a bug, of the vibrant multicultural synthesis of Islam and Western Civ. (Naturally, Leftist politicians and intellectuals think they are using the Islamists as tools they can subsequently discard or reshape to their cultural-Marxist ends . . . though I think they think wrongly.)
