Opinion – How rightwing writers covered Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville | US news | The Guardian

With a sub-title entitled ‘The Far Right – Bursting your Bubble’, this is an outstanding piece of analysis, published in the Guardian.

Author, Jason Wilson, argues that despite the president’s increasing political isolation, there are some on the right who can’t bring themselves to condemn him, and others who blame the left.

This is one of the best pieces of analytical journalism that I’ve read in your. Wilson highlights the data, gives an overview of the publisher and the writer, a citation and his own translation of the coded language.

Of course, the Guardian is liberal and giving its audience some fresh red meat.

Sadly, there’s another equally dark story to tell about the Far-Left, with their own racist, pro-Palastinian, anti semitic bias. For both the Far Left and the Far Right, evidence is suppressed in favour of political expediency and the end justifies the means – look to 20th century history, whether it’s Hitler and Mussolini’s Fascism or Stalin‘s Communism.

I wonder if writer, Jason Wilson, will write a second piece exposing the Far-Left? It would be interesting to see if the Guardian is ready to be as critical of the Far-Left as the Far-Right?

 

A group in Germany conspiring against Turkey, says Erdoğan – POLITICS – Hurriyet Daily News

In an important lead article, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet cites President Erdoğan proclaiming that a German coterie is hatching nefarious plots against Turkey, particularly with a recent ‘genocide’ bill.

President Erdoğan is talking to the world’s media from a platform in Nairobi on his African tour.

The article is well worth reading. Erdoğan gives detailed responses to a number of highly charged questions.

Reflecting on this latest development in relations between Turkey and Germany, it will be interesting to see if the number of refugees arriving in Europe, especially Germany, actually falls in 2016 or indeed ahead the federal election in October 2017.

Surely, it that Germany’s policies on refugees and immigrants will backfire and cause a popular backlash?

Thoughts?
