FOX NEWS: SSgt. Robert Bales v. Maj. Nidal Hasan — a breathtaking hypocrisy


Two serving US soldiers go on gun rampages which result in the death of innocents.

Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is a veteran of three Iraqi tours and was serving on his fourth Afghan tour when he snapped. Throughout his career he has probably contributed to the saving of many, many Muslim lives. Twenty times the number of infidels (read, supposed comrades-in-arms) no doubt, that Major Nidal Hasan shot dead at Fort Hood.

Hasan is likely to seek a defense of “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” even though he, unlike Bales, has never seen active service. In contrast, Bales is to be charged with war crimes, which have irreparably inflamed Afghani/US tensions; whereas the Pentagon – at the White House’s insistence – has classified the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence”.

In other words while Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he pumped round after round into his colleagues, he was being no different than a disgruntled postal worker. And crucially, as this Fox News video confirms, the media has happily collaborated in “de-contextualising” the one case while insistently and pointlessly contextualising the other.

So in the desperate search for any “motive” that might explain these horrific incidents, the fact that Hasan had business cards on him saying, “Soldier of Allah” which he had printed up before his killing spree: is not deemed in the slightest bit relevant. But the fact that Bales sought a life in the Services after his business went belly-up over a decade ago? Ah there’s all the explanation you need…

  1. Hasan was just one of the latest examples of deadly Islamic duplicity. Never forget about Utah Muslim Marine, Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun who went AWOL, leaving his post and returning to Lebanon, not the Muslim soldier, or Sergeant Asan Akbar who lobbed three grenades into tents housing commanding officers from the 101st Airborne Division at Camp Pennsylvania single-handedly killing a division captain and wounding 15 fellow soldiers, and certainly don’t forget the Muslim sailor, Babar Ahmad who apparently was offering to give secrets about his ship to other Muslims for their own deadly use, not all the other examples of Muslim mendacity. No doubt there are more examples – none of which we should EVER forget nor forgive.

  2. Yes it is hypocrisy, which is only to be expected in this barbaric day and age, I don’t know what made the man snap but hope he doesn’t get a very harsh sentence.

  3. and yet, Hasan has the possibility of the death penalty, while Bales does not. maybe don’t get outraged about things until they really happen. making conclusions in retrospect is far easier AND better than making ones months early.

  4. ibieiniid, why are you bringing facts and relevancy into this idiotic, bigoted, Limbaughtastic rant? Looks like, yet again, the bigots are wrong. Hasan got death and Bales got life.

    I’d like to see *FACTS* begin to shed the correct point-of-view on bigots like “Eeyore” but we all know it won’t happen. God forbid (oh, I’m sorry, I made a religious saying… just like Hasan!) anything like this happens again, we all know “Eeyore” will throw facts out the window yet again and completely ignore the relevancy of the facts that have actually happened.
