Moral Low Ground


At Least 90 Iraqi Emo Teens Stoned to Death for ‘Strange Hair and Tight Clothes’

This is the type of freedom we’ve spread in “liberated” Iraq…

According to the Daily Mail, the teenage students are being killed by religious extremists, with the Iraqi Interior Ministry complicit in the murders. The Moral Police released a statement on the Interior Ministry website slamming the ’emo phenomenon’ and declaring the intention to ‘eliminate’ it. The statement read, in part:

“The emo phenomenon or devil worshipping is being followed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate [the phenomenon] as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger.”

“They [emos] wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationary that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities.”

For those who didn’t know, emo– short for emotional– is a style of rock music characterized by expressive, often brooding lyrics. Leading emo bands include Dashboard Confessional and Jimmy Eat World. The term also describes the fashion and culture associated with emo music.

The Daily Mail reports that armed men dressed in civilian clothes have been rounding up dozens of teenagers and stoning them to death, disposing of the bodies in garbage dumpsters throughout Baghdad.

“First they throw concrete blocks at the boy’s arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead then, they start all over again,”one youth who was able to escape told Al-Akhbar.

The Ministry of Education gave permission to the moral police to enter Baghdad schools and round up emo students.

It is believed that extremist Shia militias have been carrying out the murders.

    What the fuck? That is SO fucked up…How can you think that emo is devil worship and then go killing a bunch of fucking god damn teenagers like that? They are just scared and power hungry and stupid. I can’t believe that the country (the people in charge) are just allowing this to fucking happen. Don’t they realize how ridiculous that is? They are not ‘eliminating the problem’ they are causing the problem by murdering those poor teenagers…

    Be a man Brett. Call them Muslims. That’s what they are and their reign of terror is stretching around the globe. Mormons aren’t doing this. Lutherans aren’t doing this. It’s Muslims.
