Dijlah Talk Radio Iraq Attack

FREE SPEECH FEARED

Even Insurgents Want Talk Radio Shut Down







Besides a hatred of all things Western, the American left and insurgents in Iraq have another thing in common: an urgent desire to shut down talk radio stations.

And in Iraq, they're busy ripping an independent, non-sectarian talker off the air through violence, according to news wire reports this afternoon. Radio Dijlah was founded in 2004 as the country's first non- government run outlet.

From the Los Angeles Times and excerpted here:


Gunmen Storm Iraqi Radio Station

By SAMEER N. YACOUB, Associated Press Writer
10:51 AM PDT, May 3, 2007

BAGHDAD -- Gunmen stormed the offices of an independent radio station in a predominantly Sunni area of Baghdad on Thursday, killing two employees and wounding five before bombing the building and knocking the station off the air, police said.

It was the third attack in five months against the private Dijlah radio station in the Jami'a neighborhood.

Karim Youssef, the station's deputy director, said gunmen also tried to kidnap four employees as they were riding to work, but the driver managed to get away.

He said the two-story building then came under attack with rockets, rifles and hand grenades about 2:30 p.m.

AP Television News footage showed damaged furniture and bloodstains near the main gate.

"Our guards and the staff resisted the attackers for 30 minutes before evacuating the building," Youssef said, adding the attackers then detonated a bomb on the first floor that destroyed all the equipment, including the transmitter.

"Now the radio is not operating," he told The Associated Press by telephone. "We are an independent radio station ... They are targeting us because we are independent and we have no sectarian policy. Our news is balanced and we have employees from all sects and ethnic groups."


Let's hope their American counterparts don't get any ideas!

In this country, talk's enemies use lawyers, "civil rights" activists, politicians and advertiser pressure to undermine the medium, while it's done there at the point of a gun.

If talk radio weren't powerful, it wouldn't be a target.

  • Brian, I'm afraid it may be happening!


    Savage last night talked about a group of ultra-left socialist politicos who want to pass HR 3302--The Media Ownership Reform Act of 2005. Why? One of the things included--A RETURN OF THE FAIRNESS DOCTRINE!

    The sponsor of this anti-American piece of crap legislation is Rep. Maurice Hinchey, a leftist Democrat from New York. He refused to appear on Savage's program--making him a coward of the highest level!

    Look his fellow lefties Eliot Engel and even Chuck Schumer appeared on The Savage Nation--perhaps to the dismay of the brownshirts who may be some of Schumer's constituents.

    Jeffrey Kuhner of Insight Magazine online lambastes this idea and puts it at the feet of one man--GEORGE SOROS!

    The link to this article is very long, but I thought I would quote a section of it RE: Soros:

    "The real force behind the effort to censor conservative talk radio is the progressive–philanthropist, George Soros. The radical leftist billionaire has made no secret of his hatred for conservatives. He says President Bush has transformed America into a militaristic, “fascist” empire. Moreover, Soros champions many of liberalism’s chic causes: abortion on demand, legalization of drugs, homosexual marriage, euthanasia, unlimited Third World immigration, open borders, and one-world government anchored in the United Nations.

    He advocates all the issues that are anathema to popular radio talk-show hosts like Savage, Limbaugh and Hannity. Hence, he wants these commentators to be exiled to the political wilderness."


    Savage would quote Roman orator Cicero during his monologue against this bill. This is found in page vii of "The Enemy Within"


    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys heard in the very halls of government itself."

    Making reference to names of the 17 AMERICA-HATING fools who sponsor this outrageous bill. Ever since they have taken power, The Democrats have let everything go to their heads--even moreso than the Republicans who basically turned their backs on conservatives leading to their losses in the 2006 election--and you fools on the left better stop your gloating!


    If this is allowed to become law, expect a massive rally in DC.

  • Right wing talk show hosts as far as i'm concerned are terrorist enablers, the Iraq war has created terrorism world wide, therefore if your agenda of promoting the Bush agenda enables terrorism, not only should you be silenced, you should be arrested

    The Bush agenda is the terrorist enabler agenda, the growing Al queda proves it, so if you prostitute their agenda on the radio, you deserve , arrest, and deportment.

    That includes you Maloney
    and you too Bob Anthony, every American soldier comming home in a body bag is YOUR FAULT and every RNC approved talk show hosts FAULT. You promoted this Bush agenda of building al Queda, expanding Al queda , which has happened under Bush, one can conclude if you promote the terrorist builder Bush, you support Al Queda yourself.

    Righties are terrorist enablers. bag them, tag them , detain them, deport them!!

  • I have two more things to add MOP.

    Lock them up in Michelle Malkin style internment camps without due process given to American citizens and stack them up in piles of naked bodies for amusement with Bob Anthony and Maloney at the bottom.

    P.S.

    Bob, you and Maloney have a lot in common. Two pathetic hacks kicked out of the radio industry for good cause.

    Wow! What a bunch of incoherent rantings by an unhinged maniac. A Cameraman with a Mexican flag, ohhhhh my better KILL HIM!!!! KILL KILL KILL!! Ever wonder, maybe the guy was Mexican, do you get upset when Isreali's have their flag on their car, front of their house, etc. etc.? Nahhhhh, those folks are not as brown as the Mexicans!

    Ever stop to think retard, your not on the radio because YOU SUCK?? Your a hack??? Your a retard????

    Like most cons, this paranoid freak thinks everyone is out to get him!! Conservatives don't get jobs in the media? Are you high on crack, 80% of the media is conservative retard, ohhhh but the cameraman with the Mexican flag!!!!

    You sociopath

    and yes you are an enemy combatant. For 25 years your filthy fellow freaks on the right have done it to "liberals", I can do the same, question your patriotism, call you a traitor, the same tatics you used against the "left" since the rise of that filthy degenerate (i piss on his grave) Ronald Reagan. Cons, can't handle it when you question their patriotism, their blind sycophantic worship of anyone with an "R" next to their name is Anti-american, when you take party over country you are indeed Anti-american, especially when it's done for protit on the radio. When you back an Anti-american pro-terrorist regime such as the Bush crime family, you will be called an enemy combatant, now live with it or stop supporting the ENEMY. America is turnig far to the left, you Bush sheep have yourselves to blame for the death of conservatism.

    You filthy bastards can try to stir up the image of Ronald Reagan, only problem most Americans despised Ronald Reagan, approval numbers prove it. Reagan pulled the wool over this countries eyes as he eliminated the Middle Class. Reaganism was not "conservatism". We know how you cons need a mythical hero to worship, actually quite pathetic, when the hero (who looked good on a horse) was nothing but an enemy of the American family. It took 30 years, but America finally gets it, Reagan conservatism, neo-conservatism is the enemy of freedom, the enemy of the working class and the enemy of America, Neo-conserevatism ranks right next to fascism and Stalin-communism as a FAILED IDEOLOGY against the best interest of most people.

    your time has come and gone. It is gonig to become harder and harcer to sell your failed, anti-democratic, anti-freedom , pe-hate crime agenda as each day passes. You can turn blue in the face, America has turned their backs on your failed ideology of big business over people, big business over enviornment, big business over the safety of the populus. The profits over people agenda is gettibng harder and harder to sell everyday.

    You filthy cons cry about Reagan, how conservatives lost their way. It is a bunch of hogwash, Bush is exactly what Reagan was, the only difference Bush had a Republican rubber stamp congress to pass all his failed ideas. Their policies are identical, Reagan had to deal with checks and balances, Bush had no checks and balances for 6 years. Don't cry for Reagan, Bush has carried out ther Reagan conservatives dream, and you see where it's gotten America. It's not that bush is not conservative, it's simply that neo-conservatism when rubber stamped by congress (Reagan had no such luxary) is destructive to America and the world.

    you got your Ronald Reagan in W, same garbage. It failed America. , Stop running from "W". This is your
    con dream come true, and it's turned into a nightmare

  • Free Speech is feared, especially by the left. Liberals are afraid of the consequences of a truthfully informed public.

    Here's an example where you have to ask is this free speech or hate crime speech.

  • Damn! My fellow liberals, Maloney is onto us!

    He has recognized our link with our Iraqi terrorist brothers!

    Next no doubt he'll unveil our plan to force everyone in the United States to speak Spanish and give California back to Mexico!

    Zut alors!

    Oops, I have unthinkingly revealed my allegiance to the French!

  • "Here's an example where you have to ask is this free speech or hate crime speech...."

    no, actually it is NOT...it is a horrible, tasteless, hateful comment...yet, by your standards, as imus demonstrated, it IS free speech, and anyone having common sense realizes you cannot have it both ways, which of course leaves the hateful right wing right out
