Media is focused on people marginalized in society due to race, ethnicity and sexuality. It is based on well-known stereotypes and reinforces them. Moral panic sends society into mass hysteria over an issue or an event that occurs. Stanley Cohen believed that media created a moral panic. Stanley had published a book on folk devils and moral panics (1972) which says that moral panic occurs due to people or groups become threats to society and interests.
The general argument made by Jamie Dailey in “Modern- day Witch Hunts: Broadly targeting the Muslim Community is antithetical to America’s founding ideas” is that after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 the Muslim Community seems to be targeted. More specifically, Dailey is stating that the irrational fear and paranoia present in American Society causes racial and religious discrimination of the Muslims. Dailey writes about mosques, which are Islamic places of worship, and how they have been recently targeted. Dailey writes, “ In Glendale, Arizona, a bottle filled with acid was thrown at a mosque while mosque officials stood nearby. In Bridgeport, Connecticut, protestors picketed a mosque celebrating Ramadan and shouted slurs”
Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).

Nativist’s opposed immigration, as they believed that it would negatively impact the United States socially, morally, politically, and economically. Socially and morally, the nativists feared that foreigners were a threat to the American society, as they were culturally inferior, possessed many ailments, and committed crimes. Politically, the ethnocentric nativists believed that immigrants would corrupt the government and negatively influence American politics.
Cormac McCarthy has a unique writing style in comparison to standard novels. Typically, novels have varying sentence structure and distinct separations of dialogue between characters and narration. Though, in The Road, descriptions and dialogue blend together, as there is no punctuation, and rarely a formatting change, to help distinguish the two pieces. Furthermore, McCarthy utilizes a style that is more suitable to poems than novels. The sentence lengths, like in many poems, are almost uniform and typically follow short, direct approaches.
His stories also seems to convey a sort of gentleness but without any softness to it, they evoked mood, and were impressionistic, which has made his works stand the test of time. (Pardis 82). To make his stories work with the people of his time, Fitzgerald had to write about themes revenant
In both of the stories the symbols are very effective because they help to emphasize the theme of each short story the writer was trying get across. For example, in “The Gift of the Magi” the author states that Della and Jim both treasure their most valued possessions, but are willing to give them up for each other. This stresses the devotion that they have for each
Aftermaths of 9/11 ,2005 London Bombings and the emergence of Isis in Iraq, gives birth to a question that Being a Muslim is fortunate or unfortunate in the Western world. As Islam is unfortunately the most misinterpreted, distorted and wrongly portrayed religion in the world presently ,and the sufferers are the ordinary Muslims in their day to day lives. If we see the latest world view for example ,like the destruction of Twin towers in America,2005 London Bombings in England ,The conflict of Israel and Palestine and the ongoing beheadings which are being continuously done by the ISIS in Iraq, are affecting the Muslim diaspora in the western world and therefore it is an obnoxious fact ,that some Muslims who are kind of black sheep’s of the community ,are the cause of disturbing peace
Obviously enough, in the most cases, historians are not the direct reporters of past events, because there is no way to revisit the specific period of time; but, rather, historians use primary and secondary sources in order to report the historical event. As a result, Davis is exposed to stinging attack from Robert Finlay. He reviews Davis 's book in his article on The Refashioning of Martin Guerre by criticizing her method in writing the story as a historical work. For him, Davis’s treatment of Martin’s story is not a historical work, but rather fiction. Primarily, Finlay focuses on his criticism on Davis’s imagination of reconstructing of the Martin Guerre’s story in order to make a dramatized story.
Most of his examples included a reference to race as the major factor contributing to the negative effects in society. This example of poor writing that ultimately undermines Buchanan’s own points when while examining American culture from the past to the present. Buchanan argues that the changing demographics in the United States contributes to the supposedly negative aspects in our lives. He states “Today, we Americans disagree over whether annihilating 45 million babies in the womb… is a mark of progress or a monstrous national evil…” (Buchanan 599).
Tim O 'Brien 's "The Things They Carried" is aimed at many audiences, but the two main ones are: veterans who have shared similar experiences and relate to the harrowing, yet heartfelt stories in the memoir, and those who were no where near the action. Thus, his memoir provides a consolation for veterans, but provides direct confrontation with the uncomfortable truth for others, just like Phil Klay 's "Redeployment." For the younger generations, reading memoirs is alluring as they are keys to understanding the past. Furthermore, the appeal of reading memoirs is its generally manageable readability.
Peter Beinart, in his article, America’s Most Prominent Anti-Muslim Activist I Welcome at the White House, talks about the positions Brigitte Gabrielle takes regarding Islam and her relationship with the members of the new administration. Brigitte is originally a Maronite Lebanese, anti-Islamic activist. The background of the activist seems to be very important for Beinart to explain her opposition to Islam. He seems to criticize her position because it is supported by a historical personal biased background. This criticism is obvious by using the terms “distorts” and “bigotry”.
For example, the beginning of the book drags on; has a low tempo; and isn’t very intriguing. A book should jump out at a reader and instantly captivate them, but this novel didn’t do that for me. Also, it contained lots of foreshadowing, thus making the book a little too predictable. Pearl S. Buck should have incorporated more action, more excitement, more plot twists and things or actions that will cause a reader to never want to put the book down.
