Stoned to death for being an emo

Stoned to death for being an emo

Youngsters in Iraq are being stoned to death for having haircuts and wearing clothes that emulate the ‘emo’ style popular among western teenagers.

At least 14 youths have been killed in the capital Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shia militants.

I wanted to write a flippant comment but I cannot top the actual reality of events.

The world is a beautiful, beautiful place. Never lose sight of that.

This is kind of trite, dude. The people killing these kids aren't involved in some kind of heroic reassertion of masculine virtues and transcendent wisdom, or something. The irony is that you, along with most people on this forum, were probably people who were visibly distinguishable from their peers during their own teens, and would likewise be singled out for this kind of thing in Iraq. You think they'd be likely to take to heart your protests that the music you listen to is really just another expression of the majesty of Allah?

NHA

Beautiful story, but the average joe comments at the bottom of these articles always spoil it for me.

Heavy metal and heavy metal forums have always seemed to attract the vicarious abuser hipster types:

Quote
Hipster 1: "Woah, man, check out that SLAUGHTERED EMO!"
Hipster 2: "Yeah, man, take a look at his corpse! So awesome!"
Hipster 3: "Hey, wait! 'SLAUGHTERED EMO' -- what a perfect name for our new band!"
Hipster 1: "Unholy shit! Yeah, man! It's a perfect combination of form (our death metal brutality) and function (our statement of intolerance for pussy emo faggots)."
Hipster 2: "Dude, great idea! Let's go play street hockey, then beat up some emos, and then jam at my place!"
Hipster 1, 3: "Right on!"

Emo youngsters need serious growing up / reality orientation, but brutal killing?

Such mindless machismo behavior is actually more cowardly and feminine than any emo behavior.

Haha, of course it's not.  What would be cowardly would be to deny your culture in fear of retaliation from the grey masses (i.e. 'Merica[tm]).

I support oncology.

Being macho = cowardly
Being cowardly = cowardly

Funny how that works. Either that or you are bullshitting like most of the people on this forum.

I interpreted it as "mob aggression directed to marginalized, effete dorks" = cowardly. I suspect there isn't much risk of reprisal involved and that the aggressors are acting as groups. Anyway, the point isn't to condemn violence, just to recognize that this phenomenon doesn't equate at all with our situation here in the West. Taking this stuff out of its context and vicariously indulging in it as a way of venting against emo/indie kids is just kind of lame. It's something I've done a lot in the past, so I do understand the impulse. The problem is that it's a kind of narcissistic gesture that doesn't make us more effective, but does suggest to others that we lack potency and lucidity.

You miss the point.

Emos endorse a type of lifestyle which is one of submission to social circle-jerking.

A metalhead does not. Neither does an angry Iranian crowd killer.

The point isn't articulated beliefs, but spirit. Healthy people look at an emo and think, "Oh, a sick animal -- it should be euthanized."

They don't look at a nerd the same way, even if he's got Absurd and Blasphemy patches on the same jacket.

This is some twisted logic here. Somehow I doubt that one can use dress as an accurate barometer for strength of character. Otherwise it would easy to improve one's self solely through attire. The obvious point is that these Iraqis see emo dress as a sign of westernism, which they view as counter to their beliefs and culture. Nothing more, nothing less. In this case, they decided to confront this perceived threat to their culture by stoning. Lets not let the inevitable bias and violence against pods who dress emo be mistaken for proper eugenics, and see it as a dysfunction of judgement within this situation.

Well, yes, good point. Those emos quite simply do not belong in Iran (or any sane society).

However, there is no part of traditional Iranian or Persian [edit: Iraqi or Arabic] culture that endorses mob murder.

I promise you that these thugs don't know a thing about their culture anyway.

Finally, in the war against the 'Merica(TM) cult, it's tactically retarded: such unintelligent barbarism only recharges its power.

Hmm, well, what I said works just fine, and I am not bullshitting. So, either you misunderstood, or I miscommunicated. So, to clarify:

Mindless violence against a random outsider is not a sign of a brave citizen defending their native culture.

Imagine: a Mexican-American emo brutally killed on the streets of Houston, Texas.

Now imagine the killer proudly exclaiming: "We will do what ever it takes to defend our Anglo-Germanic-American culture."

LOL. Even Jared Taylor is light years more intelligent than that.

One, yes they do.

Two...

Conservationist man... listen... what are you doing?

I thought ANUS was the one place that actually still had a shot at injecting Romanticism and Pan-Nationalism into the thought streams of the U.S. middle-class, so that this retarded Enlightenment and Internationalism (Globalism) could finally end.

I thought so, because ANUS was the one place that actually said to other Rightists: "Hey guys. We aren't going to solve our problems by beating up the Negro and Jewish kids."

ANUS had a shot. Now it's becoming unreliable, obscurantist, and increasingly similar to Leo Straussian deceptive neoconservativism.

Well, dang. Good luck with that, man. Meanwhile, I'ma go start a Rightist movement that actually accomplishes something.

Yeah that was a pretty bizarre comment of him to make, but why are you always full of bad attitude? Did someone shit in your oatmeal?

Really? I think of ANUS as the Number One site on the web for people looking for Black Witchery scat porn, and advice on stealing blinkies.
The politically-themed posts are just trolls used to increase the web traffic.

Don't forget about the heartfelt tributes to Dimebag Darrel.
