The Human shields of the media

One thing that has really struck me about the Ari­zona Law has been the almost united media reac­tion of how dare they.

They are beat­ing their breasts, call­ing them Nazis, vow­ing not to do busi­ness in Ari­zona and pos­tur­ing them­selves to prove how pure they are on civil rights by bravely stand­ing in oppo­si­tion to the peo­ple of Ari­zona and their police.

Yet they won’t show a clip of South­park with­out cen­sor­ing Mohammed’s image.

That is why I call them the media human shields. Like the one’s in Iraq they “bravely” stood up to Amer­i­can troops fully know­ing that they were in no dan­ger from them. The media like­wise will bravely stand up to Ari­zona police and vot­ers because they know their “brav­ery” puts them in absolutely no danger.

They will how­ever not stand up to rad­i­cal Islam for the same rea­son why those same human shields would not go to Israel dur­ing rocket attacks nor dur­ing China dur­ing protest. They know the dif­fer­ence between real dan­ger and pos­tur­ing and won’t risk their necks.

One thing that has really struck me about the Arizona Law has been the almost united media reaction of how dare they.

They are beating their breasts, calling them Nazis, vowing not to do business in Arizona and posturing themselves to prove how pure they are on civil rights by bravely standing in opposition to the people of Arizona and their police.

Yet they won’t show a clip of Southpark without censoring Mohammed’s image.

That is why I call them the media human shields. Like the one’s in Iraq they “bravely” stood up to American troops fully knowing that they were in no danger from them. The media likewise will bravely stand up to Arizona police and voters because they know their “bravery” puts them in absolutely no danger.

They will however not stand up to radical Islam for the same reason why those same human shields would not go to Israel during rocket attacks nor during China during protest. They know the difference between real danger and posturing and won’t risk their necks.
