[From "Syrian Deserters Return, Shocked the Government Seized the Land They Deserted"]
I can’t even contextualize the mindset here.
Since when have war deserters been sympathetic figures?
(The answer is since 2015, when the media hyped up war desertion as a heroic act, in part because they wanted to flood Europe with Arabs and in part because they wanted to deprive the government of Syria of their fighting forces.)
Many Syrians forced from their homes by their country’s brutal, decade-old war are now shocked to discover that their family farms have been taken over by regime loyalists and cronies.[…]
Who was the offensive against? Random civilians?
Obviously, it was against ISIS.
Why was this man not fighting for his country?
By definition, he is a deserter.
Now: consider if this story were 100% true (which it may or may not be).
What would be wrong with this?
These are traitors and deserters, who fled their country during a time of crisis, who are now showing back up – now that men much braver than they fought to protect their country, and succeeded – and saying, “so we’re cool, right?”
In most of history, these people would be attacked on sight. Now, they’re being welcomed back in, but finding that the people who stayed to fight the war they fled took their land. And they’re whining about that?
This is not a good look for refugee scum, and frankly, it isn’t a good look for the Jewish media that is siding with this refugee scum. Young men fleeing a war because they’re too cowardly to fight for their country is always, always going to be a bad look. On a biological level, people are repulsed by that level of cowardice.
They should have their land taken – and worse. They should have their wives and daughters confiscated as well, frankly, and given to the men who fought.
