A Plague on Both, Continued

I notice that both Charles Johnson at LGF0.0 and LGF2: The Blogmocracy are flogging readership for their respective sites by showing film of a murdered Iranian woman.

I regard these images as war porn and anyone (in the U.S. at any rate) who would use this poor woman's murder by the hands of Islamo-fascist Iranian state security to increase their blog readership as outrageous and hideously disrespectful of her sacrifice.

The people of Iran are free to use the image to spread the word of resistance. However, there is NO legitimate reason for any American to show the image of her murder.

And no, I won't link to either example.


"Bar" of LGF2 sends this note: "With all due respect, if you read what n2l says in that post, it clearly is not to improve our readership, he is clearly not pimping for that."

I can't agree. Certain things should not be on "Page 1" of ANY publication. If you absolutely have to have this image, you hide it behind a link and a "NSFW" (Not Safe for Work) warning.
