MSM double-standard strikes again
In response, yesterday about 100 Muslims demonstrated outside the US embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, and threatened “jihad” or holy war if the Florida group proceeds.
A spokesman for the protesters said burning the Koran would unleash "uncontrollable rage from Muslims around the world."
Okay...let's see if I've got this right: When fanatical Muslims hijacked airliners and crashed them into two skyscrapers in New York, the Left said we should...be tolerant and not strike back. And now nine years later, Muslims want to build a mosque on a site where part of one of the hijacked planes hit, and the Left says we should...be tolerant and let them go ahead.
And now when some people want to burn copies of the Koran--the Muslim response is: "If they do, we will unleash war."
Gee, looks like demands for "tolerance" are only made to one side, while the other side trumpets its intolerance and the politicians and "journalists" around the world grin stupidly.
But of course, this is a "dog bites man" story, because everyone knew Muslims would have this response.
What makes the latest report worth noting is that not a single MSM story will note the double standard.
Remember the dustup about two years ago when a Danish paper that asked cartoonists to draw cartoon depictions of Mohammed? Muslim in several nations rioted in protest. When U.S. papers ran stories about this, you'd think they'd have re-published at least one or two of the allegedly "offensive" cartoons, so readers would know what all the rioting was about.
Know how many U.S. papers published even one of the cartoon depictions? One.
Because they're all scared to death of offending Muslims.
