A Lesson in Liberal Hypocrisy

CNN and the New York Times, two left-wing powerhouses that claim they are for free speech, have refused to publish the Muhammad cartoons. CNN has stated that “It is not showing this because of the negative caricatures of the likeness of the prophet Mohammad because the network believes its role is to cover the events surrounding the publication of the cartoons while not unnecessarily adding fuel to the controversy itself.” The above statement is the official stance of CNN on the cartoons.

Is that right CNN! Then why was it that during the Abu Graihb scandal, which enraged many Islamic Radicals, did you continually show the pictures of terrorist detainees being mistreated? You purposely added fuel to the controversy with total disregard of the safety of US marines and soldiers! You published and republished those pictures everyday in an attempt to damage the administration. I don’t want to hear your BS about how you don’t want to upset the Muslim people by posting these cartoons. I want to hear an apology and I want to hear you admit your hypocrisy for purposely aiding in enraging Islamic Extremists in the Abu Graihb case but refusing to print these perfectly fair but politically incorrect cartoons.

Also, I want to know why it was perfectly fine to publish a seven year old picture of the Virgin Mary with elephant excrement all over her, while at the same time, claiming to be protecting Muslim sensibilities in the cartoon controversy. Recently, the New York Times has also refused to print the Muhammad cartoons while gleefully printing the
Holy Virgin Mary covered in elephant dung. The Times also over-hyped the Abu Graihb story and ran the pictures for months. 59 front page stories about Abu Graihb and Guantanamo Bay which, of course, fueled the hatred of America and contributed in the deaths of Americans. Not to mention the phony Newsweek story about flushing the Koran down the toilet which caused riots that resulted in the deaths of, I believe, 16 people. Yeah, the NY Times ran that story as well.

There you have it folks; the willingness by the left to endanger our military and our country but the unwillingness to print cartoons that Muslims find offensive. Their hypocrisy truly knows no bounds.
