I think its because he is doing it online. If he were to do it on a street corner im sure he would be. Online its up to you to tune in or tune out.

He looks to me like a retiree with nothing much to lose at his age. Still, this man is a hero.

Even though he's an atheist and frequently bashes Christianity as well, I'm a subscriber to Pat. He at the very least doesn't hold all religions as equally invalid.
Well..as an atheist he does see all religions as equally invalid.
He sees Islam as a bigger threat to British freedom of speech and Christianity as a bigger threat to America's
Overall he is a strong believer in freedom of speech and the usual suspects are clueless because of their racism

Comment on his video and ask him if that's true.

The Muslims I know condemn the embassy killings, yet they still cant grasp the concept that it is freedom of speech to say whatever you want about Muhammed. The same Muslims who will say the folks in Libya act like barbarians will say in the next word that the man who made the film should be arrested. These are westernized Muslims to, and are harmless [I know them enough to say that], but it speaks of the overall culture when even a westernized Muslim sees Muhammed as being out of bounds of free speech, but everything else is fair game.

moral equivalencers :thumbsdown:
Islam apologists can justify the kind of things they do as long as they can cite just one similar incident by done another religion or nation recently or centuries ago, which in the end still cannot make two wrongs a right.

"Reasonable" Muslims that want to kill or beat up people or property for insulting Islam are by definiton not reasonable people at all.

Pat Condell has been right for a long time, people need to realize that many radicals have no respect for freedom of speech
