Gita Saghal: The Hypocrisy of Amnesty International Exposed

by the Left Coast Rebel

Eric Dondero at Libertarian Republican is on the leading edge today with a story about Gita Saghal and Amnesty International. Gita Sahgal (@ left) served on Amnesty International's board until recently when her views of Islamo-Fascism became apparent. Many of us have known for eons that Amnesty International is an insidious front-group for radical leftist cause, even to the point of not calling out communist totalitarian dictatorships. Knowing this as well, Eric Dondero writes:

Throughout the Cold War, 1970s, '80s, the Right accused Amnesty International of being little more than a front group for leftwing causes. Their reluctance to criticize human rights abuses by Communist regimes, from Angola to Nicaraugua to Cambodia to the former Soviet Union, was legendary.

Now it appears AI has taken on a new ally on the Left - Islamo-Fascism.

News now breaking from across the Atlantic that worldwide human rights activist Gita Sahgal has been "suspended" from the Amnesty International governing board. Her crime? Criticizing AI's alliance with Islamic Terrorist sypmathizer and Taliban defender Moazzam Begg.
Eric goes on to explain the shocking silence among various leftists and 'human rights' groups toward Gita Saghal's treatment.

  1. But there is a minority of intellectual pacifists, whose real though unacknowledged motive appears to be hatred of western democracy and admiration for totalitarianism. Pacifist propaganda usually boils down to saying that one side is as bad as the other, but if one looks closely at the writing of the younger intellectual pacifists, one finds that they do not by any means express impartial disapproval but are directed almost entirely against Britain and the United States.
