Today Bolt writes a piece on his blog about the how the Iranian police broke up a protest using tear gas and batons. I wrote the following comment in response though I doubt it’ll be published.
Last Friday Bolt, indeed, while you were in Israel, Israeli fascist occupying troops opened fire with tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets on unarmed peaceful protesters at the village of Bil'in near Ramallah in the West Bank.
No doubt you'll be reporting this in your forthcoming feature article about your visit to Israel.
I won't hold my breath.
The hypocrisy in this is two-fold. Bolt is quite happy to jump on the bandwagon of Western propaganda against the Iranian government but ignores entirely the years of Israeli police and IDF violence against protesting Palestinians and Israelis.
The other hypocrisy is just another example of Bolt’s projection propaganda technique whereby he accuses others of being what he actually is himself; in this case he labels the Iranian leaders as ‘fascists’ thereby attempting to deflect the fact that he is a fascist himself.
Typical Bolt propaganda.
