Safe Mode: On
Rememeber when Merah was a White, right wing, terrorists and Trayvon Martin Was a Sweet, Innocent, Black, Child?

Leftist Commentators Blame Media For Reporting Truth About Merah


Is there a double standard perpetrated
by Western media in its coverage of violent killing sprees depending on
the race, ethnicity, or religion of the perpetrator? Harvey Morris of
the International Herald Tribune, the global edition of the New York Times, asserts just this in his recent op-ed about the recent killing spree by a young Muslim terrorist, Mohammed Merah, in France.



Morris, echoing the thesis of Salon.com's far-left Glenn Greenwald,
contrasts the "Western media's" coverage of Merah's killing spree to
the coverage of American Sgt. Bales, recently charged in killing 16
innocent woman and children in Afghanistan. Both Morris and Greenwald
indict Western media for its supposed hypocrisy in assuming that a
Muslim charged with committing violent acts is a radical jihadi
terrorist, while assuming that an American soldier must be rooted in
some sort of mental problem or emotional dysfunction.



Morris closes his article by quoting Greenwald:





There
is, quite obviously, a desperate need to believe that when an American
engages in acts of violence of this type, there must be some underlying
mental or emotional cause that makes it sensible, something other than
an act of pure hatred or evil. When a Muslim engages in acts of violence
against Americans, there is an equally desperate need to believe the
opposite: that this is yet another manifestation of inscrutable hatred
and evil, and any discussion of any other causes must be prohibited and
ignored.



The problem is, this analysis is just plain wrong.





Look back to the New York Times coverage of another violent killing spree, this one by Major Nidal Hasan, the American Muslim Army psychiatrist. Here the New York Times,
which also happens to be "Western media," not only afforded the same
courtesy to Hasan, a Muslim, as has been asserted to have been afforded
to Sgt. Bales, but also went out of its way to do so in light of
overwhelming evidence that Hasan had been previously radicalized.



What both Morris and Greenwald have
wholly brushed aside are the factual underpinnings for concluding that
Merah was acting as a jihadi terrorist. Merah proclaimed himself to be a
jihadi and a member of Al Qaeda and screamed "Allahu Akbar" when he
attacked paratroopers in Montauban on March 15, 2012.



If we already know that Merah and others
who killed or tried to kill innocent people have become radicalized and
received terrorist training, isn't this what a fact-based journalist ought to concentrate on?



If Greenwald and Morris are seeking to
condemn Western media for bias, they ought to turn the mirror on
themselves and their alacrity to make sweeping justifications without
following the first rule of vetting their story: fact-gathering.

  • If you continually prove that your dislike for the president stems from unfounded ideas like he's a socialist/Muslim or illegal alien and despite all the contrary evidence you continue making these false claims then your disdain for the president is probably rooted in some sort of irrational psychological pre-disposition. Racism is the most likely candidate.

    • @VikingRapeSquad You only call them "lies" when they contradict the retarded conclusions you've cooked up in your tiny meth fueled brain. Apart from that, you soak up all the bullshit you read on the internet like a brainless sponge.

    • @VikingRapeSquad You mean like the fake pictures of Trayvon that you posted or the piece of media that insinuated that he was casing houses to burglarize when Zimmerman happened upon him. I honestly don't think you even recognize your own sick hypocrisy. You are fucked in the head man.

  • Actually, let's roll the clock back a few weeks ago when a Black racist group lit up a White Kid. No condemnation there of African American leaders like Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton. Hell no. How about a personal telephone call from his Royal Blackness, Obama to the suffering kid or parents. Nope.

    I'm not letting this Hispanic off the hook anymore than anyone else who shoots a kid. Black or White, hispanic or Oriental.

    I do though condemn the Spike Lee's out there, and the New Black Panther More..

  • The UK press gives little clue about their headline "racist attack"...except for Operation Trident (ie black on black) involvement. Generally, it's just branded "a racist attack"...and we're all wondering which racist has attacked which race. The general assumption pushed by the press (over decades) is that is a white aggressor, but I doubt this is always the case. White mugging victims are unable to claim it was racially motivated, tho' it probably was.

  • Comment of user 'HYPERTECKER' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • Remember when Anders Brehvik in Norway was an Al Quaida militant? Too bad he turned out to be a Right Wing White Supremacist just like VikingRapeSquad, except with more teeth. That's why smart people don't immediately jump to conclusions when a crime is committed.

    In fact, VikingRapeSquad, YOU were one of the people who completely bought the neo nazi theory about the killings in France as soon as it started circulating. Seems to me you're just upset and embarrassed about being such a gulli More..

    • @VikingRapeSquad There's no part of calling you a Right Wing White Supremacist that's a jumping to conclusions you dumbshit. That's a perfectly reasonable, logical conclusion based on every post you make, just like the one right after this one where you assume a woman who's identity is yet to be revealed is a Black Obama voter. You can't even go 5 minutes without completely contradicting yourself.

      You've called Obama a racist for no good reason, that alone proves you don't like the president because of his race. Go ahead. Name one racist thing Obama has done.

      You've called him a socialist. I've proven to you several times that progressive taxation is not socialism and that our nation has operated under progressive taxation for the majority of the 20th century including it's two gre More..
