In today’s Western media, there’s no lack of knowledge concerning celebrities. Everything you NEVER wanted to know (whether you want to or not). From what Miley Cyrus is exposing at the moment, to Justin Bieber’s latest bong hit. All useless, ancillary junk…enough to be a mental emetic for the average thinker.
Meanwhile, the matters of life and death are blacked out of the public’s global view.
When an apartheid government existed in South Africa, the news media was ALL over it. Why? Not because it was wrong (because it clearly was), but rather because it was those wicked White men hurting Black men. Period.
If you question my explanation, then I ask you this: Why is the Western media ignoring the slow, but steady, genocide of Christians in majority Muslim countries? Islamic jihadist groups like Boko Haram have slaughtered (and continue to slaughter) innocent, unarmed Christians in Nigeria. Thousands to this date, and YET, few (if any) Americans know about these atrocities.
To clarify: That is…Muslims murdering Black Christians.
With a 24-7, 365 media…why is there dead air on this? Why the media blackout?
Is it, perhaps, because the victims happen to be Christian…and the perps happen to be the Left’s victim class du jour: Muslims? I say, unequivocally YES!!
Here’s why…Boko Haram is a terrorist group established in 2002 by Mohammed Yusuf. The group seeks to establish a “pure” Islamic state ruled by Sharia Islamic law, eliminating what it deems the “Westernization” of Islam. The group is known for attacking Christians. As a matter of fact, from 2002-2013, Boko Haram has killed between 4,000 and 10,000 innocent Christians in Nigeria.
I’m not a gambler, but I’m willing to bet that you were not aware of Boko Haram. And if you were, you weren’t aware of their particular disdain for Christians.
Their latest jihad…Boko Haram’s gift to Christians for Easter week: The kidnapping of over 200 Christian girls (unknown how many may have been killed) and a series of attacks that left at least 120 dead.
Of course, you heard about this in President Obama’s Easter speech, right? Nope…instead he shared an incredible falsehood as a so-called Christian. He said: “The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission.”
So, Islam encourages “loving your neighbor as yourself?” Tell that to the thousands of victims of almost 23,000 deadly Islamic jihad attacks since 9-11…
You weren’t aware of those attacks either? More proof of a blackout…
If we’re ever going to get to the truth in the current milieu…it will be up to truth lovers to hold the media’s feet to the fire on integrity.
And to pressure them to finally stop slapping lipstick on the Islamic pig.
Shalom through strength…
