Growing anger over anti-Christian terror denialism

Nothing to see here, you nasty Islamophobes.

Anger is growing around the world at the blatant disparity and hypocrisy of the media and political elite in their reactions to terrorism, depending on who the victims are.

Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism. It shouldn?t matter who the innocent victims are: Muslims in a market in Quetta or in a mosque in Christchurch, or Christians on the streets of Rome or in churches in Sri Lanka. But, as we are seeing after the Easter carnage in Sri Lanka, it matters very much to the media-political elite who the victims are.

Christians are way down on the Victim Totem Pole. Quote:

Donald Trump Jr has slammed the Washington Post, after the major American newspaper responded to Sunday?s terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka by downplaying Christian persecution. End of quote.

As per the standard narrative, no matter who is shredded by terrorists? bombs, the real victims, as far as the media-political elite are concerned, are always Muslims. Quote:

Just a day after 290 Christians were slaughtered by Islamic terrorists during Easter celebrations, the paper published a piece downplaying the idea that Christianity is under attack, claiming rather ?the vast majority of terrorism victims globally are Muslims.?

The piece also went on to warn the bombings in Sri Lanka are stoking far-right anger in Western nations??Some far-right groups claimed hypocrisy and double standards, arguing that attacks on Christians failed to receive the same response as attacks on Muslims,? they added. End of quote.

?Far-right?, of course, meaning anyone to the right of Marx and Engels. Or, in this case, anyone who dare states the blatantly obvious. Quote:

Trump Jr responded to the piece on Twitter, calling the publication a disgrace. ?Yes, Christians hoping to not be murdered by extremists is ?far-right anger?.?

?Now, let?s discuss the leftist talking points refusing to mention Christians as the victims of this gruesome attack on their most holy day,? he added.

?Your paper is a disgrace!!!?

Sorry, Washington Post. People aren?t angry about Islamic terrorists murdering 290 Christians because they?re ?far right.? They?re angry because they?re decent human beings. End of quote.

Trump Jr is not the only person who?s had a gutful of media deceit. Quote:

The attack has claimed four times as many lives as the recent New Zealand massacre, in which 50 Muslims were gunned down in a Christchurch mosque?In both attacks, a minority group was the target. In both attacks, the victims were targeted in their religious place of worship. But unfortunately, it?s unlikely we?ll witness a similar response to both attacks from our politicians and the mainstream media.

Following the Christchurch terrorist attack, politicians and personalities donned hijabs, attended mosque worship, and even broadcast the Islamic call to prayer in public places. End of quote.

No such sympathy for Christians. Quote:

Muslim Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, beefed up security and police presence around mosques after the Christchurch attack, but merely sent his ?thoughts and prayers? to the victims in Sri Lanka?So far, [New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda] Ardern hasn?t said anything on social media?

Political Commentator David Vance said, ?Imagine if Christians targeted mosques during Ramadan and tried to kill as many Muslims as possible. The media would go ballistic. Consider the slaughter of Christians in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday and reflect on the supine silence from the politicians??

?Compare the level of outrage with what happened in Sri Lanka with Christchurch, NZ,? Imam Mohamad Tawhidi tweeted. ?Triple the amount of casualties and triple the amount of injured people. It offends me and other like-minded Muslims that we get special treatment and other equal humans don?t.?

Dinesh D?Souza rightly said, ?What we learn from the disparate coverage of New Zealand and Sri Lanka terrorist attacks is that ?news? isn?t really news. Media coverage of events more often reflects ideological prejudices of the media than what?s actually going on in the world.? End of quote.

Neat how Christchurch prompted world leaders to condemn islamophobia worldwide but hundreds of Christians are killed in multiple church bombings on Easter in Sri Lanka and not a single one of these leaders condemns this particular trend. ?Some people did something,? as it were.
