Silence please! It’s all too much

The world is in mourning. Television in mourning and the ABSURDITY of hate crimes.This has been an absolutely terrible week: 3 beautiful young kids in North Carolina, killed because of who they were: Muslims. The media wants us to believe it’s all about a parking spot. It’s not. The assassin, Craig Stephen Hicks, is a Nazi. The victims, almost picture perfect role model kids: Deah Shaddy Barakat (23 years old, a dentist), his wife, Yusor Mohammad, 21 and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19. I cannot believe this is happening in the same USA where Eric Garner and Mike Brown were killed for who they were. What do we do? How do we scream? In what language? In how many tears?
And the world of Television is in mourning:
-Brian Williams, the # 1 name in anchoring, suspended without pay (practically fired from NBC) for “enlarging” stories. Not lies but reports.
-Bob Simon (60 Minutes, CBS) just died in a car crash in Manhattan ! This man survived captivity under Saddam Hussein and billions of other ordeals and, at age 73, still very active, dead because of a car crash.
-Jon Stewart announces he’s leaving the Daily Show (on a lighter note).
-David Carr
-Tomie Othake.

-Copenhagen attack on Freedom of Speech and the Synagogue – Feb 15, 2015

O mundo está de luto. Televisão de luto e o ABSURDO que são esses crimes odiosos baseados, puramente, na ignorância e no preconceito. Essa tem sido uma semana horrivel: 3 garotos lindos, de North Carolina, mortos, assassinados simplesmente porque são o que são: Islamicos. A midia quer nos fazer acreditar que foi tudo por causa de uma vaga de estacionamento. Que ridiculo! O assassino, Craig Stephen Hicks, é um Nazista.
As vitimas, jovens que poderiam ser (praticamente) exemplos de perfeição e compaixão Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23 anos, dentista e sua esposa, Yusor Mohammad, 21 anos + a irmã dela, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19 anos. É duro de acreditar que isso esta acontecendo nos mesmos EUA onde Eric Garner e Mike Brown foram assassinados porque eram quem eram!
E o mundo televisivo esta de luto tambem:
– Brian Williams, o principal ancora do pais (e editor geral de noticias da NBC) suspenso por 6 meses por ter “exagerado” algumas das reportagens (como se o ser humano tivesse que ser um robot sem pontos de vista).
– Bob Simon, um dos nomes mais antigos e respeitados (do programa 60 Minutes), morto num acidente de carro em plena Manhattan. Sobreviveu a 41 dias de prisão e tortura debaixo de Saddam Hussein e more assim, num desastre de automovel.
– E, numa nota mais leve, Jon Stewart avisa que vai deixar o seu programa satirico diario no Comedy Channel, o Daily Show. Essa semana ainda não passou, mas ja deixou o mundo bastante mais triste.
