Christie arrests filmmaker, blames him for traffic jam


[Dissociated Press] New Jersey governor Chris Christie today announced the arrest of Mohammed Al-Fatwi, a Fort Lee filmaker who posted a You Tube video days before the massive traffic jam at the George Washington Bridge last September. New Jersey officials say that the jam was caused by thousands of drivers who were watching Fatwi's video, which mocked Islam and the Prophet Mohammed. Christie made the announcement of the arrest after comforting families who were trapped in the traffic and the governor promised:
We will make sure the person who made the video that was responsible for the traffic jam is arrested and prosecuted.
At the press conference announcing the arrest, the New Jersey governor was exasperated by reporters' incessant questioning about the incident at the bridge:
With all due respect, the fact is we had a traffic jam. Was it because of a video or was it because of guys out for a drive one day who decided that they’d they go cause a traffic jam? What difference at this point-- what difference does it make?

  1. Hilarious! But only Dims get to say "what difference does it make," about the tragic deaths or Americans and get a pass on it from the media. How many Saturday Night Live skits would there have been if Palin said something as offensive and outright stupid?

    I hear they've remembered the dead highway workers run over by enraged motorists by covering them up with a thick layer of asphalt and calling them Memorial Speed Bumps.

    The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights– a notion that– people have- to be able to– participate– in– their own governance. But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because– you know, in a lot of these places– the one organizing principle– has been Islam.

  3. Leave it to Egnor to cast the victims of Christie’s scheming, the inconvenienced drivers, in the role of protesters and terrorists.

      You should make a dPowerPoint about it, Popster.

      Title it "An Inconvenience Truth".

    2. Or make one about you and call it “An Incontinent Truth”.

      The only incontinence around here comes out of your mouth, Pop-Tard. You have a bad case of logorrhea.

    OT: "Shut up your mouse, Obama!"

    But who is Obama's mouse? Is it this guy?

    What a clown car this Administration is...

  5. Christie said “I take full responsibility” and “the buck stops here”. Nice sound bites, but negated with the follow up “I had nothing to do with it”. If he really took full responsibility he would have immediately resigned.

    1. Yeah! Just like all other (*) "liberals" do.

      (*) Christie is a "liberal" ... but he's the bad kind, with an (R) after his name.
