[Must-Watch] Redwan Hussien Lambasts Western NGOs over Double-standards
For many years, the United States has been criticized for abusing its power in trying to act as the “world police”. It has interfered wantonly in other sovereign nations internal affairs while claiming to be a referee for human rights.
It is obvious that the Western mainstream media circus apply a policy of controlled news reporting on their domestic problems and at the same time they apply outright lies or biased news reporting on international affairs especially on third world nations such as Ethiopia.
The biased reporting, stereotype stories and hidden hate towards developing nations of the world are facts of western journalism. These champions of the free world who claim that their reporting standards are very high, they are honest and feel responsible to provide correct information to their audiences are in fact, have dual standards of reporting. They intentionally dramatize a situation in order to market their programs and increase their market share at any cost.
Not only their mainstream medias, but also their human rights organizations routinely ignore deteriorating racial discrimination and social injustice against blacks and Hispanic communities in the United States.
In Baltimore and Ferguson, the police’s heavy-handed handling of protesters had incurred international condemnation. Interestingly, the U.S. State Department had claimed that the incident was purely an internal affair of the US and not comparable to situations in other countries.
While accusing other countries of wrongdoing in their reports on human rights, those right groups based in the US should also speak out against human rights deterioration on U.S. soil.
