REUTERS WATCH: Every Neo-Nazi Skinhead Thug An “Activist”

From Reuters:

Last year activists burned Holocaust victim Anne Frank’s diaries and made a teenager wear a sign saying he was a Jew. Many Jewish establishments have police guards and a German all-Jewish football team suffers weekly abuse.

The latest figures prompted Chancellor Angela Merkel this weekend to condemn the rise in right-wing violence and urge Germans to fight it.

Ariel Sokolovsky sent this in, noting that Reuters now calls terrorists “militants” and neo-Nazi skinhead thugs "activists."

  1. Well, if those are “activists,” I guess we should all proudly stand up for the label of “passivist”!

    Yeah, I’ve noticed this as well. I hate it when activists blow stuff up. It’s very… active.

    Isn’t Reuters owned by Saudi Arabians? (it was started by a Jew, ironically).

    Thanks for publishing this but I have a small correction :
    I wrote to you that they call terrorists “militants” while anti-semitic thugs are apparently “activsts”

    He is an example of what happens when every putz who can pass a test is given a very serious and responsibility laden title of
    Rabbi.
