    If that was true, and I knew about it, and it was virtually certain to happen, do you think I or any decent person would do such a thing?

    Would any "decent" person kill, riot, destroy property over a video they didn't like?

    You seem to envision a utopian world, where everyone is polite.

    That isn't what we have. Given that some people will take offense, the law dictates self-control for those who raise their fists, not those who raise their voices.

    Would any decent person make a video with the intention of provoking a riot?

    The topic is constitutional law, not etiquette.

    As for what that man's intentions were, I think you are wildly speculating.

    Would any decent person riot/kill over a video? We could do this all day and I'm always going to be able to trump what you're indignant about with what I'm indignant about. Lol.

    It's not what you're indignant about that's the problem, it's what you're not indignant about that's so odious.

    The answer is obvious to anybody who isn't advancing a bigoted anti-Muslim agenda, that no decent person would participate in a riot nor purposefully incite a riot. Why on earth is it so hard to condemn this video? Are you that hateful of Islam?

    If the filmmaker is, indeed, a Coptic Christian, that might go some lengths to explain why he might (either fairly or unfairly) not be particularly fond of Islam.

    Maybe so, but if I wanted to start a riot in Libya, I would make the news, burning the Libyan flag in Public Square, etc. (Which is perfectly constitutional, as long as I'm not a fire hazard.)

    Not upload some dreck on YouTube and "hope" someone is annoyed.

    Whatever the content of the video, the maker has the right to share it.

    This applies to both liberals and conservatives.
