The American press should count its blessings

Give thanks we don’t live in Bangladesh, where you can be put on trial for writing columns supporting Israel and condemning Muslim violence.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Egypt, where bloggers have been detained by the government for criticizing Islam and exposing the apathy of Cairo police to sexual harassment of women.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Sudan, where editors can lose their heads for not kowtowing to the government line.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in China, the world’s leading jailer of journalists and Internet critics.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Lebanon, where outspoken writers pay with their lives.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Russia, where investigative journalists routinely wind up dead.
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Denmark, where the cartoonists who dared to caricature Mohammed and challenge creeping sharia are still in hiding, in fear for their lives
[…]
Give thanks we don’t live in Italy, where a spineless judge bowed to jihadists and put famed war journalist Oriana Fallaci on trial for her sharp-tongued critiques of Islam.

But we live in America where wealthy celebrity entertainers are considered “oppressed” because people who disagree with their views refuse to buy their products.

The horror.
