Longtime readers have seen my reports on former Marine Josh Roshing, anti-American, anti-Israel, Islamo-pandering “reporter” for Al-Jazeera English a/k/a Al-Jazeera International, who was hired by the Terrorist News Network when no-one else would hire this boob after his dimwitted appearance in the pro-Jazeera propaganda “documentary,” “Control Room.” Yes, I know that once you’re a Marine, you’re always a Marine. But not in this guy’s case. He’s the exception (Semper Foolis). As I’ve noted, he’s spent his time on Jazeera doing “patriotic” work, like anti-American specials on My Lai. And Rushing tried to sell his failed book by attacking me in it and using that for his press push. (Didn’t help.)
Moron AND Traitor: Al-Jazeera’s “Flamboyant” Josh Rushing
Now, the fabulously flamboyant Rushing is using his perch at Al-Jazeera to attack U.S. prisons and hospitals and their treatment of the allegedly mentally ill–more anti-American fodder for the Islamic world that watches Al-Jazeera. And a Democrat Texas Sheriff Adrian Garcia helped Rushing and Al Jazeera in this outrageously anti-American enterprise.
The video . . . is dominated by officials and inmates from the Houston area, including Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt [DS: Another Democrat] and medical officials who work in the Harris County Jail. Officials from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice refused interview requests, according to the report, although TDCJ appears to have granted jail access and interview access for inmates.
Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt also gave an interview to the network Thursday, a police department spokesman confirmed.
“We think it’s odd, at best, to have Al Jazeera going through our jails and actually interviewing folks,” [Harris County GOP Chairman Jared] Woodfill said. “Second, we don’t believe our chief law enforcement officer should be promoting an organization that has been linked to Al Qaeda and other terrorist or quasi-terrorist organizations. So we thought it was important to let our folks know what was going on.”
Terrific. Let’s give Al-Jazeera the rope on which to hang ourselves. Vladimir Lenin was wrong. We’re not selling our enemies the rope. We’re actively giving it away.
Don’t give the Republicans too much credit, though, for speaking out against this. As the Dems and Sheriff Garcia’s spokesperson point out, President Bush did many interviews with Al-Jazeera as did his administration (Condi Clueless, etc.). And where were the Republicans then? They didn’t seem very concerned about Al-Jazeera’s attacks on America then or the Bush Administration assistance to the network. And, as far as I’m concerned, Bush helped legitimize them.
David Benzion of Lone Star Times posted some of Rushing’s other America-hating reports on Al-Jazeera.
I was on to this boob, Rushing, years ago on this site, from before he ever worked at Terrorist News Network. And I was right. Sadly. I blame the U.S. Marine Corps bigwigs for picking this ignoramus as their spokestwit and allowing him to be a star of “Control Room.” This is the fruit of that. Were it not for that, he’d either still be just another Marine, or an unemployed airhead with a worthless college degree and military separation papers.
Hey, how do you think Muslim countries treat their prison inmates–mentally ill or completely sane? A heck of a lot worse than they’re treated here. But don’t hold your breath for Josh Rushing or Al-Jazeera to show that to their Muslim world viewers anytime soon. Or ever.
