oh that naomi, so concerned about sexual assaults. which is why she's tweeted about lara logan, right? oh, that's right she's nir rosen's friend.
remember naomi doesn't give a damn about women.
even her mother will tell you that.
she was a little mall rat who discovered how to play magpie and that ended up working out fine for her until people started noticing her inability to follow up.
and started noted what a hypocrite she was.
someday, naomi klein's just going to fall over, collapse under the weight of her own great ego.
it'll be like seeing a weeble wobble and fall down.
nir rosen's little boyfriends and girlfriends are working overtime to protect him.
amy goodman 'forgot' to include her man in headlines today.
and what about the 'feminist' naomi wolf?
a trip to her site demonstrates she's facebook-ed repeatedly in the last days just not to call our her little buddy nir rosen. a visit also turns up this photo:
musa mukhtar isn't being silent and has a great post:
God this guy is arrogant. To explain why such a sophisticated mind such as Rosen would make such an idiotic series of comments on Twitter, Nir Rosen would like to remind you that he is pretty special. He has been to places you haven't been. So you don't really understand. Unfortunately this attitude is very common among Middle East specialists.
So why did I write it? It was a disgusting comment born from dark humor I have developed working in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and Lebanon -- and a need to provoke people.
Rosen then goes into his natural attack mode, attacking his enemies--"people like Jeffrey Goldberg, who has blood on his hands", and explaining his antipathy for Lara Logan.
So, given the opportunity here for some nuance, I feel I should explain the point I really was trying to make. Had Logan been a non-white, non-famous journalist, this story would have never made it to the news. Ahmed Mahmoud, an Egyptian journalist, was killed in cold blood and nobody ever heard of him. Dozens of other women were harassed and nobody will ever know their names.Obviously if Logan had not been a prominent American journalist, it wouldn't be as big a story in the United States. But if Logan had been a non-white American CBS reporter, I am pretty sure it would still be a big story.
that's an excerpt. read the whole thing. and grasp that not every 1 is pretending it didn't happen.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
