Jap Drug Smugglers Executed – Racism or Hypocrisy?
It is very notable that the two threads I found on this, souvenir 0 replies and mariame 5 replies, seemed rather light when in comparison to Mr Shaikh the pseudo Brit executed for the same crime. Chinadaily BBS » News Talk» China & the World» Heroin traffickers deserve to die.
There were two main threads as I remember, the previous went to some 200 replies and the other 100 replies. A total of 300 replies for Mr. Shaikh and only 5 replies for the two Japanese executed.
Why is that?
I could only think of one main reason in the case of the Japanese – Apathy.
That raises the interesting question as to why there is apathy when the criminals are Japanese, as compared to say the case of a Brit.
I can only assume two conclusions.
The first would be racism, and second would be the media pack intervention.
In the first instance, the lives of these Asians or Japanese are of no importance and therefore not worth the same furore accorded to the Brit. Because they are Asians their lives are of no consequence and therefore not worth defending as worth saving. The idea that ALL life is precious does not enter this thread and certainly nowhere near as vociferously as expressed in the Shaikh thread. The case of war in Korea, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia certainly suggest this fact that Asians are only worth anything when an HR violation can be highlighted for political leverage and gain.
Or did I miss something here?
In the second reason, media intervention. It would seem that when the British Government fed their media pack the case of Mr. Shaikh, it was grabbed and expanded with the human angle placed right at the forefront. Winston Smith wrote some of his finest articles and spread these to the wolves who fed them to the Proles.
The Proles read the stories and took this up with vengeance with cries of shame and inhumane. Even post execution the media still wrote about a frozen unmarked grave and robbed body parts. Mr. Shaikh was shot by a single bullet, a firing squad and lethal injection.
Winston gave him a multiplicity of deaths and the Proles swallowed it wholeheartedly.
It is at this point I would ask those previously most vociferous supporters of Mr. Shaikh, which category do You belong to?
Are you just simply a racist?
Just a media Prole?
