Washington Post Writes Glowing Obituary About A Terrorist

The Washington Post, in it’s infinite wisdom, wrote a glowing obituary mourning the death of ISIS terrorist leader al-BaghdadiBehold their headline:

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48”

When I first saw that via Twitter I thought it was a joke, but quickly found out that it was indeed real. Upon reading this slavering piece of dreck, I had to laugh at how much pretzeling it took to carefully gloss over the fact that this guy was the leader of one of the worst terrorists groups this world has seen.

“When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi took the reins of the Islamic State of Iraq in 2010, few had heard of the organization or its new leader, an austere religious scholar with wire-frame glasses and no known aptitude for fighting and killing.”

Oh sure, in the next paragraph they admit that his leadership spawned a group known for it’s shocking brutality. However, as you read further, we find out that he was a messianic figure of some sort.

“And yet, despite the group’s extremist views and vicious tactics, Mr. Baghdadi maintained a canny pragmatism as leader, melding a fractious mix of radical jihadists and former Iraqi Baathists and army officers into an effective military force. It was this combination of extremist ideology and practical military experience that enabled the group to seize and hold territory that would form the basis of a declared Islamic caliphate.”

He built bridges between factions don’t you know! What leadership! What intelligence! Super cool dude! He was very religious, very conservative, didn’t like Western clothing, and as a college student was extremely critical of men and women dancing in the same room. But sure WaPo! Tell us again how his austerity and religious views meant he was reluctant to fight or kill?

And the reaction has already started. Trump was being MEAN when he described how al-Baghdadi died. He was heartless in his description of al-Baghdadi’s running into the dead end tunnel and then blowing himself and three children up.

Sorry Dana, but I’m absolutely thrilled that a major terrorist leader is dead. I’m not alone in this either. Furthermore, we’ve celebrated the deaths of other terrorists in the past. Bin Laden’s death is a prime example. People danced in the streets, New Yorkers wept in relief, and Americans all over the world took to social media to celebrate his ending.

First of all, those dogs are military K-9 soldiers. Heroes one and all. Secondly, the remaining terrorists in the region were just shown that our military doesn’t mess around. Third, I disagreed then with giving Bin Laden a proper Muslim burial and disagree now. He was a terrorist and should’ve been treated as such. So no, Dana, I could care less about your hand-wringing over how al-Baghdadi died.

Back to the WaPo obituary. While writing this post, the WaPo changed their obituary headline for the THIRD time. Now he is the “extremist leader of Islamic State…”

It is indeed a major insult to Kayla’s memory, to her parents, and to the other families such as the parents of James Foley. Speaking of whom, they are very glad this particular terrorist is dead.

The operation was named after Kayla Mueller. A fitting tribute to a young lady who died horribly at the direction of al-Baghdadi, an evil terrorist. A young lady whom the obituary only mentions in passing in favor of ‘be nice to dead terrorist guy!’

The Washington Post Compost should’ve written a piece about all those who this terrorist and his organization brutalized and murdered. But NOOOOO… instead they write an obituary. A fawning sniveling piece of dreck that celebrates and glorifies a serial rapist, criminal and terrorist.

For the Washington Compost – here’s a suggestion for a new motto. Decency Dies In The Darkness

    Trump is right to disparage the Washington Post

    Meh. No, seriously, meh. While IS were/are terribly nasty people, they honestly had nothing on some folks of the past. They were pikers compared to Genghis and some others. Heck, Nero was more original, using Christians as torches. They are pretty awful, and should be destroyed one and all, but saying they’re the worst the world has seen? That’s projecting our current highs of stability and prosperity onto the past.

    You know, I’m just going to avoid snarking on the outrage over perfectly factual bits. *smh*
    (But, oh yes, the headline they gave was awful. And the second one. *smdh* )

    Third, I disagreed then with giving Bin Laden a proper Muslim burial
    I will agree with this one. He should have been executed in a fashion reserved for an infidel to make the point you don’t get to paradise by being a terrorist. (I wouldn’t have minded treating him like a vampire – traditional, not the glittery ones, or the silly crap for how to keep them dead nowadays. Nah, stake through the heart, cut off the head, hands and feet, burn them all separately.)

    As to the Democrat-operatives-with-bylines hand-wringing, yes, it’s pathetic. It definitely shows them as being entirely without thought in their Trump Derangement.

    But, no, we shouldn’t gloat. We should spit on his body, give it a swift kick, then dump it in the midden and move on with our lives – and get back to finding and killing more terrorists islamist jihadists.

    What are you trying to do, GWB, goad them into a competition?

    “I disagreed then with giving Bin Laden a proper Muslim burial
    I will agree…”

    Bin Laden’s body should have had its mouth stuffed with bacon and been hung upside down at ground zero, and people allowed to throw rocks at him, not as a celebration, but as both a warning and a catharsis. The Islamists intend to utterly destroy civilization — they should understand they will be utterly destroyed should they try. They should not receive “muslim burial;” they should, as Adam Smith put it, “be hunted out of civilized society like a wild beast. Civilization is too important to tolerate in any way those who would destroy it.

    BTW, The Atlantic (Yes, the ATLANTIC!) had this to say in their article:
    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the hirsute rapist whom hundreds of thousands of Islamic State supporters considered their absolute leader, died yesterday during a U.S. military raid in northwestern Syria’s Idlib province, President Donald Trump announced on Sunday morning.
    Wow. WaPo could take some hints from them.
    (The whole article is decent.)
