My Fitna Movie Available Right Here, Uncensored!

You’ve probably heard about the Fitna movie by now. It’s a short movie made by a right wing Dutch legislator who is angry at Islam. Muslims say that the movie is insulting to them, and have demanded that it be censored. Some Muslim extremists have made threats of violence against companies that could possibly have been involved in making a web site for the Fitna movie available online.

Network Solutions has refused to allow anyone to visit the web site developed for the distribution of the Fitna movie. YouTube, and now LiveLeak, have decided to censor anyone who tries to post part of the Fitna movie, because they’re afraid of the threats of Muslim extremists.

Well, I am proud to announce that I have found a copy of a Fitna movie, and can make it available to you right here at Irregular Times. Of course, this isn’t a copy of THE Fitna movie. That’s been censored very effectively. I just can’t find it anywhere.

fitna movie uncensored english language version islam koran outer space aliensNot being able to see and judge the original Fitna movie for myself, I went ahead and made my own Fitna movie, which you see here. The text of this new version of the Fitna movie, for those of you who might be afraid to watch it, is as follows:

This is the true story of the Koran, and as such, it may offend some Muslims. So be it. You can’t make everyone happy all the time.

The Koran was not written by the Arabs, as modern day Muslim scholars would have you believe. In fact, the Koran was written on the planet Fitna in the Andromeda Galaxy.

It seems that someone on the planet Fitna had made, and posted on the Internet, a short video about the blahblahs, a species of gigantic interplanetary beings from the nearby Blah Blah Nebula. The video said that the blahblahs were smelly.

When the blahblahs heard about this Internet video, they got very upset, and sent messages to the government of Fitna, saying that if the video was not censored, a big blahblah would come over to the planet Fitna and crush it in its jaws.

Some people on Fitna said that the video needed to come down right away, for the sake of Fitnaland Security. Calmer voices reminded the others that there was such a thing as freedom of speech on Fitna, and that if the video were censored, the people of Fitna would have to live in fear of the blahblahs forever.

So, the video stayed online, and a big blahblah came. The blahblah grabbed the planet Fitna in its jaws and tried to crush it, but nothing happened.

It turns out that the blahblahs didn’t have any teeth.

The people of Fitna celebrated, and decided to write a new epic romance novel. That is the true story of how the Koran came to be. If you don’t believe me, that’s your business. I won’t send a blahblah over to bite you.

Free speech activists, given the online media blackout of the Fitna movie, we may not be able to view the original Fitna movie, but we can still make ourselves heard on the issue of censorship of unpopular ideas. That’s why I encourage anyone who has the inclination and the resources necessary to create and post their own Fitna movie online in protest of the restriction of free expression by religious extremists and cowardly media corporations.

No, you don’t have to make a hateful Fitna movie to make your point. Just make a movie that in some way talks about the Koran and has the name Fitna in it. Maybe you could make an advertisement for Mohammed’s Fitna and Yoga Studio. Just have fun, and above all, don’t be part of the silence!

    I apologize in advance for this one. It is truly childish and in poor taste. I’m still laughing. I “sugest” you peek at it. Then you will appreciate jClifford’s videos even more.

  • Excrement is the last refuge of people with no real sense of humor. The misspelling of “suggest” was the thing that stood out to me the most. I understand the motivation for the movie, but the execution leaves something to be desired. There’s no need to be crude when protesting someone else’s crude ideas.

  • Iroquois

    Oh, I prefer excrement jokes above all others–remind me to tell you the one about Beethoven’s Fifth Movement–but that’s not why I’m laughing. It’s just so stupid someone actually went to the trouble to make something so childish just to bait someone into another idiotic reaction.

    But now I’m not laughing reading this:
    Syria’s Grand Mufti, leader Ahmad Badr al-Din said that if Geert Wilders pictures the image of a burning Koran in his film, the Dutch people will be held responsible and possible attacks against Western public interests are not out of the question.

    So the Moslems would be willing to riot over a dumb misspelled poo-poo film like this one?

    But this is an example of what Moslems think is okay to print about OTHER religions:

  • It’s idiocy on the part of these extremist Muslim leaders, just from a public relations perspective… if what they really want is for Islam to be respected. They don’t understand that, in our world, threatening to kill people because they say something mean about something you like is not a way to gain respect. They don’t understand that this sort of behavior is the very reason that Islam is vilified.

  • Tom

    Right. It has nothing to do with the arrogant American’s RIGHT to belittle and insult anyone and anything that’s different than US. We’ve become such a crass, classless, clueless bunch of Jerry Springerized idiots that we even do this to ourselves. It’s no wonder we have no real allies any more. Who are we going to reach out to when the economy comes crashing down? Do you think anyone will feel sorry for us?
    The rest of the world will be affected, of course, but many will laugh as we get the “comeuppance” we deserve after the Bush/neocon reign.

  • Jim

    Tom, you leave out the half in which in America it is allowed people to speak freely in criticism about the USA. What would you prefer, living in a nation in which you are free to speak so long as you don’t say anything that might upset anybody? There are lots of nations like that, and the civic culture isn’t pretty there either.

  • Tom, freedom of speech includes the freedom to say things about people that they don’t like to hear.

    We DO have a right to belittle and insult anyone. Look it up in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Or, do you want to give that up? Do you want to give up your right to belittle and insult George W. Bush? No? Then why do you give Islam a different standard? Because it’s a religion? Are we not to be allowed to criticize religion now?

  • Tom

    i’m just sayin’ that we’ve become insensitive, blustering, bullshitters! We haven’t learned that there is a difference between constructive criticism and outright sneering denigration of anything that doesn’t conform to the way WE see it (or doesn’t look like us). It’s just so stupid and crass compared to where it COULD be, like winning hearts and minds through intelligent dialog. We’d rather start wars than talk to people who have different ideas than ours. Our citizenry has become increasingly moronic, aggressive, and easily swayed by this ridiculous mindset. Our rights should be tempered with some responsibility.

  • Jim

    Funny, that last bit is exactly what Ari Fleischer said.

    Did you WATCH J. Clifford’s video? It’s rather gentle in the way it delivers its message.

  • Tom

    i guess i’m still hoping that the human species is EVOLVING toward a “better” model – but i guess i’m way off base and just plain naive. Sorry.

  • Iroquois

    I didn’t think the movie was insensitive or sneering–although I’m sure jClifford knows how to do all those things.

    The point of the Mohammed cartoons is more about whether someone else would rather talk or start a war with US.

  • Horatio

    If it’s going to move toward a better model, I really don’t think that model is Islam.

  • Tom

    Me either, Horatio (but then i don’t like ANY of the organized religions any more. On another note, it’s just been reported by the Pope that Islam has now overtaken Christianity in numbers of adherents worldwide. i wonder if this is yet another byproduct of the Iraq war?).

  • Larva

    Islam believe in koran
    Christian belive in bible & more,the movie shown was the old matter,and they dont know what exactly the r

  • Juniper

    How did it all turn out, anyway?

    Islam is still Islam, no matter what anyone says, but the movie is not a movie if it isn’t seen.

    Why is the preference given to religious-based censorship in this way?
