Some Right Wing Blogs Become Modern Day "Holocaust Denyers"
If anything is upsetting about the outrageous right wing attacks on the press reports of the murder of six Sunni citizens by a Shiite mob during the last few days, it is their unwitting efforts to become modern day Holocaust denyers, whe seem to be defending Shiite violence in Iraq, while denying reports of violence against Sunni Iraqis.
The press reports all examples of violence in Iraq with no political agenda and in a clearly impartial manner. By contrast when about 200 Shiites were killed and another 250 wounded by car bombs in the massive Sadr City slum area last week, the right wing blogs in America had no problem accepting this as probable acts of Sunni violence against Shiites. But when AP reported a mere six Sunni wordshippers were set on fire and the Sunni Mustata Mosque was badly damaged by blast damage, then some right wing blogs such as FLOPPING ACES, MICHELLE MALKIN and others began a concentrated effort to deny this Shiite mob violence against a mere six Sunni citizens, but accepted the killing and wounding of 450 Shiites as fact. Why such a proShiite extremist bias?
And this bizarre proShiite extremist bias by the far right has not abated in several days. The political right seems to be urging on Shiite extremists such the militia group dominated Iraqi Interior Ministry to crack down on press reporting of incidents against Sunni citizens. This same Interior Ministry has been implicated in running a torture chamber, planning crimes and violence against Sunni citizens, and possiby implicated in the planning and execution of the kidnappings and assault on the higher education offices recently. Some elements such as the radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr are hoping to rid Iraq of more secular based education, and turning Iraqi education into a fundamentalist Muslim controlled entity much like the Taliban control of education in Afghanistan. Many professors have fled Iraq or have been murdered, with some of this violence possiby linked to the Iraqi government Interior Ministry, perhaps the most corrupt, violent and Shiite militia group dominated part of the official Iraqi government.
Why are some right wing blogs becoming mouthpices for the Shiite extremists and militias? Any encouragement of the Iraqi Interior Ministry to "crackdown" on press reporting of crimes against Sunni citizens will only encourage Iraq to slip into a worsening state of civil war, genocide and Shiite extremism with close ties to Iran. Why are some right wing bloggers encouraging this Shiite violence and acting like modern day "Holocaust denyers"? Why are some on the political right waging an attack on the media when they impartially report violence in Iraq? This defense of the Shiite violence against Sunni citizens is hardly in the best interests of Iraqi peace and healing. This modern day "Holocaust denial" right wing extremism on some American right wing blogs is both irresponsible and disgusting.
