Bring Back Adolf: Needed, A New Furor About the Fuhrer

By Danny Schechter

New York, New York: The ISIS gang makes great enemies. They dress in black, wear Halloween masks, wave flags, act viciously, and cut off the heads of journalists.

Never mind that the Saudis beheaded ten dissidents on the night that Jack Foley became their first victim. We didn't know the Saudi victims and didn't want to embarrass our ally, but chop people we do know, and you are asking for a drone up your keister.

Nothing like a grotesque atrocity to pump up Joe Biden to vow to "chase ISIS to the gates of hell," a war cry designed to get the Christian right behind him since the IS detests Jesus too. Barack Obama's vow to destroy and "degrade" ISIS did not have the same populist appeal.

Every evangelical activist who has been singing "Onward Christian Soldiers" has a new cause now, even if ISIS' last victim was an Israeli-American.

Never mind the role we may have played in training and funding this latest face of Islamic terror; they have managed to do what few maniacs have--unite Iran and the US on the field of battle. Their scary presence has also buried all discussion of the failures of US policy that destroyed Iraq and assisted their emergence.

When you don't understand the culture of countries you invade, it's easy to demonize. And, just in time, since al Qaeda had lost its sting and fear appeal. We needed a new enemy to detest, and, poof, here they are, just in time!
