The Orlando Sentinel is running a story on Rifqa Bary based on her personal diaries and writings, turned over to them by her jihadi father. The Sentinel are scum.
The parents have provided the newspaper with a flash drive containing her personal diaries and private writings. The Orlando Sentinel has done a story on the religious views of Rifqa, trying to paint her as a "religious radical fundamentalist" (something they would never do with jihad). Think of all the buzzwords -- pagans, prophets, proselytizing .......... Rene the rube and Amy, the organ grinder's monkey, must have been in orgasmic heaven going through the little girl's personal things.
How can they know that this flash drive does not include new materials created solely to be found by the press? Who can vouch for the provenance of materials here?
If I worked at a newspaper and was approached with Rifqa's private writings and diaries, I would have thrown them out on their ass. The news story is that her parents wanted to sell her out. That's the story. But those tools at the Sentinel have no soul, no morality, no ethics ....they are bottom feeders living miserable lives of ugly desperation.
Bottom line, this damages the parents immeasurably. These are loving parents? I think they are vile, beneath contempt. SHE CANNOT BE SENT BACK.
And it proves what? That she is a true convert? So what? What happened to the lying parents' "unruly delinquent" teen meme?
Think back to your diaries when you were a teenager. Think! If my teenage diaries had been released to my sisters, I would have crawled under a rock and died of embarrassment -- but to the mainstream media??
I would love to read the private diaries and personal writings of those low lives at the Sentinel. Blech.
1) This is lower than low, and in extraordinary bad taste for the Orlando Sentinel to do this. It is tantamount to the worst supermarket tabloid journalism.
2) They are publishing the private and personal thoughts of a teenager against her will, which is totally outrageous.
3) This is Rifqa’s intellectual property, and this is really sharp practice and unethical for a newspaper to do this.
4) This also shows the bad faith of the parents, knowing that such a release will no doubt have a psychologically negative impact upon her.
5) It shows the continued bias of the Sentinel, who barely covered the news of 35 pages of facts and documentation about the Noor Center Mosque. They hardly quoted anything from that official court pleading, but are publishing quotes from this.
6) If it is at all actionable, you can be darn sure there will be a civil action for money damages brought against the OS, as this is a gross invasion of privacy.
I HOPE RIFQA SUES.
This is the same newspaper, The Orlando Sentinel, that petitioned the court in the Rifqa Bary hearing here. Those pigs wanted to be a party in the dependency case. At the time I was liveblogging it at the hearing, I wrote:
I am stunned. The Orlando Sentinel, which single handedly has done everything in its diminishing power to ruin Rifqa Bary and anyone tied to her case, wants special exception.
Was I wrong?
