Huffington Post Tries to Report on Syrian Refugees, No One Cares

Once again, we draw your attention to the different ways refugee groups are treated by the Huffington Post readership.

Earlier this week, the Huffington Post covered an news story about how the amount of Syrian refugees is expected to double by the end of next year. This is obviously bad news for the Syrian people and the world, and we're well trained from reading the Huffington Post to believe that being a refugee is almost the worst thing that can happen to a person (the worst being, of course, that Jews move onto land next door to you). The Huffington Post even gave the news story as sympathetic a picture as possible.

How many people commented on this article? FOUR. That's right. There were FOUR comments about millions of people becoming refugees.

Meanwhile, hundreds of comments get posted every time Israel bulldozes or builds a house. Messed up priorities, I tell you.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
