Nyt fra Metallica

Nå, ja, nyt og nyt – jeg vidste det i hvert tilfælde ikke:

JAMES HETFIELD IS PROUD METALLICA’S MUSIC WAS USED TO TORTURE GUANTANAMO PRISONERS

Metallica frontman James Hetfield recently told German-language TV network 3sat that part of him was proud the U.S. military chose the band’s music to torture prisoners at U.S. detention centers in Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay. “It’s strong; it’s music that’s powerful,” Hetfield says. “It represents something that they don’t like—maybe freedom, aggression… I don’t know… Freedom of speech. And then part of me is kind of bummed about it that people worry about us being attached to some political statement because of that. We’ve got nothing to do with this and we’re trying to be as apolitical as possible, ’cause I think politics and music, at least for us, don’t mix.” Watch the interview below. And for more Hetfield, read “the Best of the Rest” of Revolver’s recent Metallica interviews, right here.

Hehe…

Poli-wood

Politiken illustrerer i dag en omtale af sagen mod Karadic med billedet af den udsultede Ficret Ali, som ses herunder:

Det er jo et billede der vil noget. En stakkels, udsultet KZ-fange bag hegn. Pressen associerede straks til Bergen-Belsen-KZ-lejren fra 2. Verdenskrig.

Det passer bare ikke – Ficret Ali og hans kammerater står UDENFOR et hegn, og er ikke buret inde. Så billedet er en konstrueret løgn, men det generer åbenbart ikke dagbladet Politiken, som efterhånden har lagt alle spor af hæderlig journalistik bag sig.

Rent pallywood.

Iøvrigt bor Hr. Ali nu i Danmark på evig forsørgelse.
