HRW’s Senior Military Analyst Marc Garlasco Is Suspended For Creepy Nazi Collection…….

The blogosphere is
mightier than the sword
Given the boot

Marc Garlasco gets a suspension, and hopefully the boot, for his weird facination for Nazi memorabilia. The Tundra Tabloids was also contaced by HRW, which left a press release in the TT’s comment box, expressing its indignation that the TT and others would spread false rumors that Marc was a closet Nazi. Well to set the pseudo human rights organization straight, the TT didn’t say he was a Nazi, but someone who was facinated with them, which would explain his hearting Hamas’ propaganda. Remember folks, this is a guy who wrote the following about a Nazi SS jacket:

HRW’s Marc Garlasco:That is so cool! The leather SS jacket makes my blood go cold it is so COOL!” –Flak88 (aka Marc Garlasco), wehrmacht-awards.com, 2005
Kudos to Mere Rhetoric for the investigative work, who has noticeably picked up where LGF left off.

Human Rights Watch suspends senior military analyst Marc Garlasco after pro-Israel blog reports that he is ‘obsessed with the color and pageantry of Nazism.’ Garlasco describes himself as ‘a military geek’ whose hobby stems from his family history
A human rights group’s senior military analyst has been suspended after a pro-Israel blog reported that he collects Nazi memorabilia, an official said Tuesday.
Marc Garlasco is being suspended by Human Rights Watch “pending an investigation,” said Carroll Bogert, associate director of the New York-based organization. The suspension was first reported Monday by The New York Times on its website.
“We do know he collects German and American World War II memorabilia, but we have questions as to whether we’ve learned everything we need to know,” Bogert said.
Garlasco’s collection was revealed last week on Mere Rhetoric, a pro-Israel blog. A blog posting said his hobby reflected an anti-Israel bias and showed he was “obsessed with the color and pageantry of Nazism.”
Human Rights Watch has no evidence that Garlasco’s hobby affected his analysis, and he “has never expressed any anti-Semitic or neo-Nazi statements,” Bogert said.

  1. HRW's bias against Israel is very clear and obvious. It hardly matters what kind of antique collection they have.

    Of course, if you want to run with the thesis that their antique collections matter, you might want to also tell them: "I wonder how many HRW employees collect USSR artifacts from the Stalin era."

    I mean… if you're going to rub their noses in it, do it right!
