In the past, I’ve repeatedly written about the various epithets the PC Mainstream Media utilizes to avoid pointing to the real identity of the participants in riots, murders, and hijackings. “Somali Pirates” is one of my fave Al-Qaeda terrorist euphemisms, for example.
But, now, there’s the 2007 resurgence of the annual Muslim riots in France. Muslims torch and maim and slash and murder. And yet, no-one–at least no-one working for FOXNEWSMSNBCCNNABCNBCCBSAPREUTERSWASHPOSTNYTIMESDETROITNEWSISTAN–can bring themselves to call a spade a spade–a barbaric Muslim a Muslim.
As I’ve written, FOX News once did this, but key shareholder/Saudi Prince/homicide bomb telethon donor Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal called his buddy Rupert Murdoch to complain. Within a half hour, the Muslim riots became “civil riots.” Um, they are anything but civil. Which has a lot to do with the fact that they are exclusively and specifically MUSLIM. You’ll never hear them referred to on “Fair and Balanced” as “Muslim riots,” again. Rupert’s gotta keep those 5.46% NewsCorp shareholders happy.
And a look at the mainstream media stories and headlines in newspapers around Ameica shows, yet again, an absence of one word identifying each and every rioter: Muslim.
Instead, I’ve seen these euphemisms and epithets, mostly from headlines in various newspapers accompanying an AP story by Nicholas Garriga, or from the actual text of his story:
* “Angry Youths”
* “Urban Guerrillas” (Hmmm . . . isn’t that a slap against Black people? These guys are not all Black. But they are all Muslim.)
* “Ethnic Minorities” (Hmmm #2 . . . not sure how comprising at least 20-30% of a country’s population makes you much of a minority. But just to humor the PC Crowd, here’s a contradictory fact: They are the ethnic majority in Pakistan, Egypt, Iraq, and plenty of other countries. And guess what? They riot, torture, and kill, there.)
* “[Residents of] Drab Housing Projects“–A-ha. See, if they lived in a nicely-appointed tent like Muammar Qaddafi, then all would be well. A luxe Bin Laden cave with 12 wives and assorted mistresses, swell. A mansion in the Washington, DC area where Laura and George constantly fete them and call them “Bandar Bush” (even though the wife funded the apartments of 9/11 hijackers), well, then, the riots would never happen. Time for Sarkozy to contact Ikea and see if they can construct something for these “justifiably” angry car-torching cop-killers.
* “Impoverished“–Yup, if they had it all, they’d never commit violence against westerners. Go tell it to the 9/11 victims of Mohammed Atta, son of a very wealthy man. Bin Laden, billionaire. Assad, not hard up fo’ cash.
Rome is Burning. France is just . . . “hearing from the disenfranchised.” Who, coincidentally, all happen to be Muslim.
Maybe you can come up with your own euphemisms for these Muslim rioters. Please post them in the comments section.
Here’s one to start with: Unrequited 72-Virgin-Yearning Romeos.
