Karadzic’s Arrest Brings to Light Psychiatry’s History of Ethnic Cleansing

[ClickPress, Sun Jul 27 2008] The psychiatric watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), says the capture of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic will bring to justice a psychiatrist whose genocide of thousands was reminiscent of Nazi psychiatric crime during World War II, and that few people are aware that the “ethnic cleansing” — ridding a geographical area of racially “inferior” people-carried out in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and later in Kosovo, was based on the same psychiatric-inspired racial hygiene programs that led to the Nazi Holocaust.

In 1992, CCHR formally submitted to the World Psychiatric Association, the World Federation for Mental Health and the Mental Health Division of the World Health Organization information concerning the psychiatric atrocities committed in the region formerly called Yugoslavia.

CCHR presented the same information about psychiatry’s role in initiating and conducting the “ethnic cleansing” atrocities in Bosnia-Herzegovina to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

This is not entirely surprising; Scientology’s conspiracy theories around psychiatry are well-known, being blamed for everything from the Holocaust to Xenu’s atrocity. For more information on Scientology’s hatred of psychiatry, see http://psychassualt.org/
