Arnold Ahlert writes at Frontpage.com:
In a shameless display of the Left’s romance with the murderous enemies of America, Rolling Stone magazine has put a picture of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of its August issue, being released to newsstands today.
An outcry of national proportions has ensued, best expressed by bombing survivor James "Bim" Costello, 30, of Malden, MA, who needed several pigskin grafts, and has three friends who lost legs in the atrocity. "I think whoever wrote the article should have their legs blown off by someone, struggle through treatment and then see who they would choose to put on the cover," he said. . . .
For decades, getting one’s picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone was considered the ultimate affirmation of rock stardom. So much so, the phenomenon was immortalized in a song "Cover of the Rolling Stone," written by Shel Silverstein and performed by Dr. Hook.
It is virtually inconceivable that Rolling Stone publisher Jan Wenner would be oblivious to the obvious connection most people would make with regard to giving a jihadist bomber the "star treatment."
"Conspicuously missing from the article? Any details about the victims of the bombings," Ahlert writes. "The victims are the real face of this atrocity. That Rolling Stone chooses to ignore such an obvious reality in favor of giving an Islamic jihadist the so-called 'rock star treatment' is a utter disgrace."
