Tripping refugee

Tripping refugee

Y’know, I’ve seen mainstream media types pull some pretty lowdown stuff in my day. I’ve heard Chris Matthews telling the antiwar movement it should apologize. I’ve heard Bill O’Reilly call the Black Lives Matter movement “terrorists”. I’ve heard a CNN anchordroid acting disappointed at the absence of violence at the premiere of Straight Outta Compton. But I’ve never seen something as rock-bottom piss-poor as the Hungarian TV camerawoman sticking her leg out to trip a Syrian war refugee trying to flee the Roeszke detention camp.

What’s especially sad about this, though, is that the camerawoman’s behavior pretty much encapsulates the current policies and attitudes of most EU member states.
