Hardcore Islamists Kill The Music In Mali

Just remember, the Islamists are just a minority who don’t really have any power or something, as Liberals keep telling us (and throwing around the word “Islamophobe”)

(Washington Post) Northern Mali, one of the richest reservoirs of music on the continent, is now an artistic wasteland. Hundreds of musicians have fled south to Bamako, the capital, and to other towns and neighboring countries, driven out by hard-liners who have decreed any form of music — save for the tunes set to Koranic verses — as being against their religion.

The exiles describe a shattering of their culture, in which playing music brings lashes with whips, even prison time, and MP3 and cassette players are seized and destroyed.

It’s probably Islamophobia for even mentioning this.

The islamists are right wing nuts they must be stopped ! Maybe Reagan should not have given those billions to them to fight the leftist Russians in Afghanistan? And Mali ??? Take a look at Saudi Arabia whom the right wing has LONG forgiven since they sell us the petroleum. The left has ALWAYS spoken out against them.

More lies about what the left does? Sorry, but the Socialist left is in bed more with Saudi Arabia and Iran than those who seek to push for more domestic energy sources – hint: Republicans and Right Wingers.
