Pakistan’s national holiday for “peaceful protest” of a crappy movie about Islam turned violent Friday. Unexpectedly, of course.

In Pakistan, a government-declared “special day of love” for the Prophet Muhammad has seen violent clashes and at least one death in the northern city of Peshawar, and clashes elsewhere.

In Peshawar, protesters attacked and ransacked two cinema buildings. A driver for a Pakistani TV station was killed when police opened fire to disperse protesters, seven of whom were reported wounded.

Clashes between police and protesters are also being reported from the cities of Rawalpindi, Lahore and Karachi.

Evidently the Obama administration’s scapegoating of free speechappeasement tweets and apology ads on Pakistani television did nothing to calm the mob on this heart-warming “special day of love.” Not even this tweet right before today’s violence.

Senator Kerry on video: "We feel it is without any legitimacy, any potential redeeming quality. It is an insult to everybody,”
