At least 90 Iraqi teenagers with "emo" appearances have been stoned to death by religious extremists in Baghdad in the past month after an inflammatory interior ministry statement dubbed it "devil worshiping", activists said.
Iraq's Moral Police released a chilling statement on the interior ministry's website condemning the "emo phenomenon" among Iraqi youth, disturbingly declaring its intent to "eliminate" the trend.
"The 'Emo phenomenon' or devil worshiping is being followed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate [the phenomenon] as soon as possible since it's detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger," the statement read.
"They wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationary that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities," it continued.
Religious extremists caught onto the interior ministry statement, and have been harassing and killing teenagers with "strange" or "emo" appearances.
A group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led dozens of teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, according to activists.

Maybe this is what it takes for the youth vote to become concerned about Islamonazism and the radicalism that Obama tolerates.
I could understand this if they were wearing mullets.
You said it all, Travis. No further comments are necessary.
Ah, cultural diversity - ain’t it grand.....
To think I spent two tours of duty in that crap hole. Why can’t America just annihilate the enemy and forgo the whole nation building BS! If they continue to screw up, annihilate them again.
Just one of many reasons why we need to get out of all Muslim countries and let them continue with their 18th century ways. There is no hope for people that think and act like this.
Well said. Thanks for your service Arch.
I dunno......I’m really on the fence with this one.......
It appears ... “You can’t fix stupid!”
Which reminds me - where’s Allegra been?
The lesson of the post WWII era is that if we aren’t willing to CRUSH a people like we did German and Japan, and completely control them for at least a generation while totally rebuilding their political and even to some extent social mores, then we ought to stay out of the post-conflict nation-building game.
Starting out a war against an ideology while proclaiming it “peaceful and friendly” was a loser from the beginning, it is plain to see now.
There is no way we are going to crush islam, a “Japan level” occupation is not realistic, and that only worked after the Emperor called for total surrender and compliance. The islamic threat will remain until the source is extirpated.
