Little Green Footballs bryder med højrefløjen

Hvad skal det nu sige? LGF er på det nærmeste USAs svar på Uriasposten (eller også var det omvendt).

Men hvordan kan det være? Hvad har drevet indehaveren Charles Johnson ud over kanten?

Vel, som han selv skriver:

1. Support for fascists, both in America (see: Pat Buchanan, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.) and in Europe (see: Vlaams Belang, BNP, SIOE, Pat Buchanan, etc.)

2. Support for bigotry, hatred, and white supremacism (see: Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter, Robert Stacy McCain, Lew Rockwell, etc.)

3. Support for throwing women back into the Dark Ages, and general religious fanaticism (see: Operation Rescue, anti-abortion groups, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, the entire religious right, etc.)

4. Support for anti-science bad craziness (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

5. Support for homophobic bigotry (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

7. Support for conspiracy theories and hate speech (see: Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Birthers, creationists, climate deniers, etc.)

8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

9. Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide (see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source)

And much, much more.

Det fremhævede er det, der volder størst problemer på den danske højrefløj – mildest talt.

Et andet indlæg gentager en advarsel fra en jødisk gruppe om ikke at lade sig narre af “islamkritikere”, som i virkeligheden blot er fascister i forklædning:

A small Islamophobic group, called Stop Islamisation Of Europe (SIOE), has called for 1,000 Jews to attend its forthcoming demonstration at Harrow mosque; and for each Jew to bring an Israeli flag.

This is strikingly similar to appeals that have also been made in recent months by the English Defence League (EDL). It is also essentially the same as opportunistic attempts by British National Party leader Nick Griffin to ditch both his and his party’s antisemitic heritage, by stressing his supposed new-found support for Israel and Jews.

SIOE’s appeal for Jewish participation sits alongside this grotesque Islamophobic image on its website:

If a Jew cannot understand why the image is racist, or hateful, or bigoted then they should try imagining it as a synagogue: with blood dripping from a Star of David; with blood dripping down the rabbi’s pulpit; and with blood dripping from the mouth of a skull that wears an Israeli army helmet. …

Det omtalte billede gengives ikke her, klik over for at se det (men det er faktisk ikke noget særligt, bare ubehageligt).

Vel, hvad kan man sige: Alle har lov at blive klogere. Nu venter vi bare på Kim Møller og Trykkefrihedsselskabet m.v. … (men lad os ikke holde vejret).

One thought on “Little Green Footballs bryder med højrefløjen”

  1. Du kan roligt fremhæve punkt 1, punkt 2 eller 5 (samme emne), samt punkt 7. De karakteriserer også den danske højrefløj.
