Euphemisms

Now we have “leading Holocaust scholars from around the world” praising Kampala for not allowing Omar al-Bashir to enter Uganda for a conference.(1) Among the scholars is a certain Gregory H. Stanton who is the president of an organisation called ‘Genocide Watch’. Of course, the watching stops when it comes to monitoring not only the on-going ethnic cleansing of Palestine but also the human rights abuses in Uganda where one of “Uncle Sam’s” men in Africa, Yoweri Museveni, “is responsible for orchestrating genocide in the north of the country, where nearly two million people were forced into concentration camps, , euphemistically known as “protected villages.”(2) Yes, Museveni with his little euphemisms really can learn a lot from the newspeak spouted out by the “Genocide Watchers” in Jerusalem.

About sanculottist

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
