Tunisia: Islamic supremacists throw TVs on the beach to denounce “corrupt” media

Maybe some of our hopelessly compromised pro-jihad pseudo-journalists such as Christiane Amanpour, Manya Brachear, Bob Smietana, Kari Huus, Dave Weigel, Michael Kruse and their ilk should hasten over to Tunisia. They would certainly give the Islamic supremacists there the kind of fawning coverage they give to Islamic supremacists in the U.S., and the League for the Protection of the Revolution wouldn’t have to resort to these histrionics.

“Islamists throw TVs on beach to denounce ‘corrupt’ media,” from France24, December 19:

Concerned by what they say is incompetent and corrupted media, the League for the Protection of the Revolution (LPR), a group of activists that is, according to Tunisia’s opposition, close to the Islamist party in power, organised a “flash mob” protest in the city of Sousse. Television sets were thrown onto the beach like rubbish.

After chanting slogans calling for the purification of the media, the protesters were asked to scatter their television sets and newspapers along Boujafaar beach, situated in the town centre.

To explain this, the LPR”s secretary general in Sousse, Lotfi Habchi, told the Tunisian press the media were failing in their duties to “illuminate public opinion, promote transparency, and deliver information objectively”.

The LPR says it is fighting against “the return of the old guards of Ben Ali’s regime”. The group already has several exploits to their name. One of the most striking was a clash on December 4 in Tunis between LPR supporters and activists for the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), Tunisia’s largest union. For the LPR, the UGTT should be “cleansed” for taking positions that were too different to those in power. The clashes injured around 20 people….

The LPR is nothing but the militant arm of Ennahda, which is trying to influence every institution in the country. The media are still out of their reach, something that annoys them deeply. The LPR was mainly created as a tool to pressure the population, including journalists, who are considered to be noisy, disruptive elements….

    If they did that in the UK, the left would call it an art installation and demand the award of a Turner Prize.
    There wouldn’t be a peep out of the Green Party over the fly tipping of electronic waste.

    This should please the Leftist “Kill Your Television” bumper-sticker crowd (one of the first influential Leftists to arrogantly denounce the television in terms of a Leftishly supercilious “We elites know better than the people” social engineering was Newton Minow, appointed Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission by that other extremely influential Leftist, President John Kennedy, who countenanced Minow’s public and now famous statement that “television is a vast wasteland”) — but you can bet your bippy that if and/or when the Muslims came after their LED TV Vizio M3D0KDs, the Leftists and many a PC MC will fall on their knees and beg: “Please! How can I live without Dexter, or Curb Your Enthusiasm, or Californication, or Weeds, or my PBS mainstays like the Jim Lehrer News Hour, or the Simon & Garfunkel Graceland Tour, or Charlie Rose or Tavis Smiley…!!! Take my wife, take my daughters, take my head! Anything, but my TV!!!”

    Obviously the League for the Protection of the Revolution, heedless of possibly further polluting the Mediterranean Sea, did not first solicit an environmental impact study of abandoning countless TV sets on the Tunisian beach before taking such a reckless action. Though perhaps Barack Obama has secretly promised them large flat screen TV’s to replace all the boxes one sees in the photographs. Who knows?

    That’s ok, SpeakUp, I’ve done it a few times myself. I just with the US military would send a drone to that “Gateway Timeout” that pops up…
