Should Jason Biggs lose cartoon gig over sexual assault comments?

Update 9/5: Biggs has deleted his tweets about sexually assaulting Janna Ryan and Ann Romney.
Nickelodeon is being pressured to fire actor Jason Biggs after he said he wanted to sexually assault Janna Ryan, the wife of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The American Pie actor made the comments on Twitter on Wednesday, earning criticism across the political spectrum and calls that he is unfit to provide the voice of Leonardo on Nickelodeon's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.
The situation brings up questions of free speech and personal responsibility in the public limelight. While everyone seems to agree that Biggs is free to say whatever he wishes, should he be allowed to keep his job on a children's show when he makes outrageous comments? In today's internet age, should he show more discretion should young fans be enticed to view his Twitter account and see inappropriate comments?
The controversy comes on the heels of congressional candidate Todd Akin's comments on "legitimate rape," which were widely condemned as well.
The furor began Wednesday evening after Rep. Paul Ryan spoke at the Republican National Convention.From his Twitter account, Biggs began slamming Ryan, first making a sexual joke about him, and then tweeting that he would like to sexually assault Ryan's wife, making graphic remarks about her anatomy. Because of the very graphic nature of his tweets, we will not repeat what he said, but they are still available to read on his Twitter account.
Some parents took to Twitter to protest, saying they will not allow their children to watch the network while they employ Biggs. Phil Kerpen tweeted that he doesn't want his kids watching anything with Biggs. "(He) has no place on a children's channel. We'll stick to Sprout," he said.
Trish Williams also took issue with Biggs. "Dear @NickelodeonTV, why do you employ someone such as @JasonBiggs who spews such vulgar hate as this," she tweeted. Katie O'Malley said "Hey @NickelodeonTV @NickelodeonPR thanks so much for introducing misogynist Jason Biggs to little kids."
Jonah Goldberg of National Review tweeted "I think this Jason Biggs buffoon deserves firing far more than the Yahoo News Director guy."
It is not unusual for public figures, including actors, to have morality clauses in their contracts when employed, for just this type of situation. Whether this is the case here remains to be seen. It will also be up to Nickelodeon to decide whether appearing on a children's show, where millions of dollars in merchandising are also at stake, requires actors to adhere to a higher moral standard in public.
For his part, Jason Biggs is unapologetic and continued to rant with offensive, bigoted tweets. On Thursday, he made a sexually graphic statement about Ann Romney, retweeted his wife's sexually graphic comments about Ryan's wife, and then took a shot at people of faith: "Clint Eastwood talking to a non-responsive stool sorta sums up Christianity in a nutshell, huh Republicans?"
On Friday, he attempted to blow off the controversy surrounding him by tweeting "To everyone freaking out about my tweets: you know i put my **** in a pie, right?"
Nickelodeon has yet to respond on the matter, and has not responded to our requests for a statement. They can be contacted via Twitter or by phone at 212-258-7500 (ask for viewer services).

BREAKING NEWS: Two sources in Chicago diplomatic circles identify Ambassador Chris Stevens as gay (meaning State Department sent gay man to be ambassador to Libya)

[ Ambassador Chris Stevens in the 70s with male companion Austin Tichenor, whose Facebook profile has been displaying photos and remembrances of Stevens the last few days including references to the gay-themed novel "Brideshead Revisited" whose main characters were star-crossed, doomed lovers "Sebastian" and "Charles"...which is not a far cry from the names "Austin" and "Chris", as some of Austin's friends have noted on Facebook. ]

Programming Note: listen to a special radio report on this developing story via the HillBuzz & Mrs. Fox Show, archived from 9/14/2012– click HERE to listen

Today I went out into the field here in Chicago looking to talk to some of the striking teachers but no one in a red-shirt was anywhere to be found (or, if they were wearing one, they had nothing to do with the teachers’ union strike).  A journalist friend of mine asked me to nose around and see if I could uncover anything about slain Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was rumored to be gay.  A former “roommate” of Stevens by the name of Austin Tichenor lives and works in Chicago and while making calls to friends of mine in the theater world who know him I also thought to check some sources with the city who deal with the State Department and foreign dignitaries when they are in town.
Of course, they’ve all been talking about Ambassador Stevens’ murder by Muslims in Libya:  and all of them are incredulous that the State Department sent a gay man to be ambassador to a Muslim country.  News reports continue to indicate that the Muslims who murdered Stevens also raped him repeatedly, before and after his death.
I was told by friends in the City’s protocol office to go over to the Second Story Bar in downtown Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue, because it’s where a lot of gay guys who work for both the city and the consulates go after work.  Chicago is home to a great number of consulates, including the Polish, Chinese, and Serbian consulates amongst others.  I happened to luck out when the bartender working, who is a friend, tipped me off that a man in a suit talking to some other foreign-looking types worked at the Serbian consulate a few doors up the street towards the lake.
Second Story Bar is literally on the second floor of a nondescript building whose ground level houses some sort of Thai restaurant.  A psychic’s office is prominently advertised on the door leading to a steep flight of stairs and a blank green steel door that hides the tucked-away bar.  The place has the feel of a speakeasy, with exposed bricks and battered plaster on the walls and an oddball collection of black and white photographs and pig-themed folk art scattered over drinkers’ heads in any exposed space.
I’m forever perplexed that actual reporters don’t camp out in these sorts of places because great scoops are very easy to find if you just go in there and ask questions.  The Serbian consulate employee identified himself to me as “Dino” and wouldn’t give me any more of a name than that, but told me it was no secret that Chris Stevens was gay and that “it was stupid to send him to Libya as the ambassador when he was a known homosexual”.
Dino explained in great detail that the brutal sodomizing of Stevens’ corpse was something that Muslims do to show the “utmost disrespect to the body” and that this is “a great insult in Islam” reserved for homosexuals.  ”It is like making him a woman in death and he will be a woman now after life” the Serbian explained to me.  There’s a good chance this guy was Muslim too, and gay, which makes my head spin more than a little since he seemed to have no anger at all in his voice that Muslims in Libya assassinated the American ambassador and then sodomized his corpse.
“He should not have gone there” was the general consensus from this man.
You won’t hear any of this in the media, no doubt, but in Chicago’s diplomatic circles at least there is no doubt that Chris Stevens was gay and that pretty much anyone in the diplomatic world knew that.  That includes the Libyans who were hired as security at the consulate in Benghazi who betrayed Ambassador Stevens and assisted in his murder.
Meanwhile, the White House is ignoring the fact that a gay ambassador to a Muslim country was murdered and they are in fact still pretending that all of this is about some obscure movie about Muhammad and has nothing at all to do with Barack Obama repeatedly and vociferously spiking the football over killing Osama bin Laden (which took place all throughout the Democrats’ convention last week).

TUNE in to the HillBuzz & Mrs. Fox Show tonight at 1030pm CST to listen to more on this story as it develops (click same link to hear in archives later too).

UPDATE: Here’s a graphic I’ve seen making the rounds on Facebook that says it all…
I think the “ImpeachNancyPelosi” group on Facebook started this one but I don’t know that for sure.
UPDATE #2:  Here are more tributes that are being posted on Ambassador Stevens’ friend Austin’s Facebook page.
* calling them “two gay poets”
* referencing the tragic gay story “Brideshead Revisited” regarding Chris and Austin’s relationship in the past.
People here in Chicago are very openly talking about Chris Stevens being gay…and yet he was sent to be the ambassador to Libya at a time when Muslims were toppling governments and introducing radical Islamists into power.
UPDATE: 9/16/2012 — the corrupt media is still not reporting on Ambassador Stevens being raped by Muslims before and after he was assassinated.  The Left is claiming “that didn’t happen” and also showing only cropped images of the Ambassador, shirtless, with captions saying “he’s being carried to safely by helpers from the crowd!”.  No, the Muslims were stripping him naked, removing his belt and pants, and raping him. The uncensored photos show the man stripped nude and being dragged off by Muslims to be violated.
The corrupt media is whitewashing all this because it (a) makes Muslims look terrible for raping Ambassador Stevens (and then his corpse) and (b) it hurts Obama for people to know that Muslims raped the male American ambassador before and after killing him.  Male-rape is not what this administration wants to talk about six weeks before an election.
You can EASILY read all about the rape via foreign news sources in the Middle East which have no qualms reporting it.
One good source is the Lebanese media. If you can’t read squiggles and little dots that look like bugs, they have an English version too that was linked here.  The Libyan Free Press is also extensively reporting on the rape of Ambassador Stevens.
Pamela Geller at AtlasShrugs is, of course, on top of this as always.  BareNakedIslam is covering it like crazy too.
If you don’t know about this, it’s because you either purposefully don’t WANT to know or you’re foolishly just getting your news from the corrupt media and receiving only the information they want to give you after it has been best censored to help Obama.
Verumserum just posted this video purporting to be of Ambassador Stevens’ body being recovered from wreckage by the Muslims who would shortly thereafter drag his corpse through the streets, strip the body naked, and rape it; the corrupt media will not show you these monsters shouting “Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar!” as they do this, but here it is:

Did Hillary Clinton send a gay ambassador to Libya as intentional provocation?

Serbian diplomat, and friend of Christopher Stevens, says State Department knowingly sent gay ambassador to Libya.
Arab media says ambassador Stevens was gang raped and then his body was put on display.
Hillary Clinton has been spending US taxpayer dollars to fund homosexual pride events in foreign countries. Her actions have prompted backlashes against the US in Italy, Russia, Pakistan, and other nations. Last year, Barack Obama made it official US policy to fund homosexual rights groups overseas with US tax-dollars.
In Pakistan, the staff of the US embassy in Islamabad was placed in serious danger after being ordered to host a homosexual pride event. Pakistanis rioted outside the embassy and burned American flags.
Friends of Christopher Stevens in Chicago say he was gay. A member of the Serbian diplomatic team based in Chicago told that the State Department knowingly sent a gay man to be the ambassador of Libya. reports "in Chicago’s diplomatic circles at least there is no doubt that Chris Stevens was gay."
The question is, did Hillary Clinton know this? If so, she knowingly sent him into an environment where his presence would be considered a provocation. Hillary Clinton's track record in North Africa is absolutely dismal. The US State Department has successfully turned Libya and Egypt upside down and placed militant Islam in charge of those nations.
Clinton claimed that Libya and Egypt would become western style democracies. She even made the comical assertion that the Muslim Brotherhood was "committed to democracy." Now Clinton's "democracy activists" are murdering Christians in the streets of Egypt, burning American flags, and calling for holy war against Israel. Clinton seems hellbent on bringing the same chaos to Syria as well.
Clinton stated that Stevens killers were well armed and probably connected to Al-Qaeda. She neglects to mention that the Obama administration armed and supported hard-core Jihadists in Libya. Some of whom openly bragged about ties to Al-Qaeda. Hillary Clinton acts like she is surprised that such a reckless policy has blown up in her face.
According to leading Arab media outlets, the murder of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was even more horrible than what was reported in on the US media. The Arab media reports that Stevens was beaten, gang raped, killed, and then his body was publicly displayed in a manner similar to Gaddafi.
A Libyan doctor who examined the body said Stevens had severe internal injuries and died of "severe asphyxia."
Three other Americans were murdered, including former Navy Seal Glen Doherty.
Christopher Stevens is the first US ambassador to be murder overseas since Adolph Dubs was killed in Afghanistan in 1976.

Obama orders US State Department to Fund Homosexual Groups Overseas.

The US State Department under Hillary has already been funding homosexual groups in foreign countries with US tax dollars.
In Italy, American tax dollars were used to fund a Lady Gaga concert in Rome. The concert was part of a homosexual pride festival. US funding for the event caused outrage in Italy, but was ignored by the American press.
Hillary has also used American tax dollars to fund homosexual groups and events in Slovakia, Russia, China, Honduras, Uganda, Malawi, Turkey, Pakistan, and others.
In Pakistan, the US State Department held a homosexual pride rally at the US embassy in Islamabad. The event prompted anti-US riots. Once again, the American press hid this from the public.
Quietly, Obama and Hillary have been granting homosexuals "refugee status" to come to the United States. This includes homosexuals with HIV/AIDS.
All of this has been done quietly, with very little media coverage. However, Obama has now declared it official policy.
Hillary Clinton is in Geneva and is expected to issue a follow up statement before leaving. This seems ironic because Hillary Clinton is also meeting with Sunni "rebels" from Syria while she is in Geneva.
Her meeting will undoubtedly include leaders of the Syrian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the radical Sunni group who's political parties include Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the Islamic Front in Jordan, and the newly formed FJP which just gained 37% in Egyptian elections. The Muslim Brotherhood does not believe in rights for women, much less homosexuals.
In fact the Muslim Brotherhood considers themselves "moderate" because they only believe women should be required to wear a headscarf instead of a full burka.
In 2007, the former Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood defended female genital mutilation. In 2010, the current Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood declared Jihad against the United States.
Earlier this year, the US State Department went from attacking the group, to defending it. Hillary personally defended the group in a public statement and admitted to holding State Department talks with the Egyptian branch. Just months earlier the US government was prosecuting American citizens for sending money to the Muslim Brotherhood in the West Bank. They were accused of sending money to a "terrorist group." Their cases were quietly dropped when the US State Department began defending the same group in Egypt.
Will Hillary show her support for Sunni Jihadists in Syria one day and then declare her support for world-wide homosexual rights the next?
