What happened to freedom of expression? If Satanist's are allowed to perform without anyone uttering a word of condemnation then why not Ustase. It's bad publicity for Croat's, but if they want to go ahead and shoot themselves in the foot then let them. Instead of demanding a ban, I think Serb's should put more of an emphasis on revisiting that part of history and educating Westerner's. It bothers me slightly that Jews seem to have a monopoly on victimhood, and seem to ban anything that goes against their interests. And therefore we Serb's are just tagging along hoping that the victim status rub's off on us. I'm not comfortable with the double standards, and I don't think that people should be censored. It's not even as if its being broadcast live on a major American TV station.
There is some truth in this, but here is the problem, this story is getting ZERO media coverage. The way to get it in the media is to call for a boycott, to ask that it be stopped, to kick and scream until someone notices.
In fact, if you've read any of the stories in the NY City papers (Daily News and Times in particular - The Post hates Serbs so much they never would say a thing which would be on our side), you'll see that they write that the only ones protesting this event are various "Jewish groups".
Sure Jews were killed at Jasenovac, but the primary targets of the Ustase were Serbs. I know of at least 3 major Serbian organization trying to bring attention to this event and not a single word about us? Why?
Is it out of fear of acknowledging certain realities about our history which does not fit into the "Serb as devil" portrayal in the modern media? The reality is, this should be top news (at least in NYC), but it is on the back pages. So, it doesn't really make the Croats look like anything, because nobody is reading it.
On top of that, Joseph Zwilling (the communications director for the RC Archdiocese of NY) said yesterday that there was no evidence to indicate Thompson has any "pro-nazi" views. Who is he kidding? 60,000 seig heil saluting Croats in Zagreb didn't give it away???
