Hugh Hewitt On the Media War

In the aftermath of Pope Benedict's speech which mentioned Islam in passing and provoked a violent response from jihadists the world over there comes another realization of the formidable propaganda machine that the Islamist fascists possess, one that is capable of distorting even a pope's academic and densely-argued speech into the occasion for the murder of a nun in Somalia.

This new worldwide machine devoted to manufacturing hate is a reality that cannot be ignored in the West or by responsible leaders in Muslim countries. Before any condemnations and demands for apologies of any statement or debate begin to roll out of government bureaucrats or politicians seeking local favor, they must reflect on the distortion their words will be met with.

In a global war with a 24/7 media front line, the defenders of civilization should be very slow to condemn any speech and very quick to defend men and women of good will against the extremist network of deep hatred that has embedded itself across the globe.

Making it worse are the enablers in this country, like the NY Times, that help fuel the Islamofascist PR machine.
