Glen Ford, the editor of Black Agenda Report (BAR), has an article berating the anti-Muslim ban protesters titled “If Americans Truly Cared About Muslims, They Would Stop Killing Them by the Millions.” He must be confused between the US government & the American people who oppose those wars. Ever since he began promoting the US regime change scenario in Syria & ranting about “jihadi terrorists,” Ford has lost all perspective. When he portrays the Syrian revolution as all head-choppers he sounds like Assad’s paid coterie of propagandists & functions in the same reactionary way politically.
For years, he was a prominent speaker at conferences of the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) which is now central to the Hands Off Syria Coalition. Before he continues his hateful vituperations against Americans, he should ask himself why UNAC failed so miserably at mobilizing the 70 percent of the American people who expressed opposition to US wars in repeated polls. Did Ford use his radio show or BAR to build antiwar actions & mobilize those 70 percent?
When you cross over to the dark side of Muslim-hating in Syria you make an ass of yourself railing against American protesters, not unlike you rail against the Syrian popular revolution as all head-choppers, Where did Ford go so wrong?
