Selective Attention



Rainer Hachfeld of the post-Communist Neues Deutschland is getting his knickers in a knot about human rights violations -- as long as the usual suspects can be blamed.

Never forget, this chap is working for the mouthpiece of a party that used to rule the former German Democratic Republic, those sticklers for human rights, freedom and everything good and noble.

Elsewhere, other sticklers for human rights, freedom and everything good and noble have to do without the attention of the Hachfelds of this world.
