A Tale of Two Atrocities

Atrocity One:

At least 32 people were killed in a Muslim Fulani herder attack on a Christian area of north-central Nigeria on Tuesday (Feb. 26), sources told a Morning Star News correspondent.

The early morning assault on villages in and around Maro, in Kajuru County of Kaduna state, came after a Feb. 10 herdsmen attack on Angwan Barde, in the same county, that killed 10 Catholic Christians along with an unborn child.

Atrocity Two:

The death toll for the deadly terror attack that targeted two mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday rose to 50, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a press conference Sunday morning.

Another 50 people were injured, 36 of whom remain in hospital, he said. Of those, 11 are in critical condition, including one four-year-old child.

Now, which atrocity are we supposed to get worked up over? That’s right, you guessed it: the one which fits the Liberal Narrative. Heck, I bet 99% of the people of the United States never even heard of the first atrocity. I did a quick search of CNN and found nothing on it. ABC had nothing on it, either. I didn’t bother looking at other major MSM sites – if they had it, at all, it was probably only a small mention. It certainly didn’t get the national hand-wringing we’re getting about the New Zealand attack.

To be sure, as Christians we must care about both attacks and pray for all involved. But why am I supposed to get worked up at the rare event of Muslims being attacked by non-Muslims when my brothers and sisters in Christ are attacked all the time for their faith? What happened in Nigeria last month is a fairly routine event. If you’ve got a good reason for this double standard, I’m all ears…but if you don’t, then I’m disinclined to believe you actually care about either attack.

And I think that is what bothers me most about this – the callous disregard for human life; not just by the murderous bastards carrying out the attacks, but by the global left which reveals its cynicism by it’s selective outrage. They don’t really care – they just think they can use the one, and not the other, to advance their political agenda. It is no surprise they don’t care – people in favor of aborting children are not likely to be filled with reservoirs of genuine human kindness. If you don’t care about an infant being killed, then you aren’t going to be sorrowful when older people are massacred.

    It’s not just matters of life and death. They don’t care about poor people, improving their ot or making their lives better. They care about them purely in their manifestation as a path to power, which is why you see their prescriptions to help them being so ineffective and them not caring. Same thing with the environment or any particular issue one might name.

    Who is the Muslim Brown Nationalist who inflicted this hate crime against those Christians? And to what extent is Obama and Rep. Omar responsible? When Democrats and Progressives constantly talk poorly of white Christians, this is what happens.

    Democrats on MSNBC this morning are lecturing Trump on bringing back civility. While they call him a white nationalist and racist.

      Their definition of civility is like a slums definition of peace. Absence of opposition.

        Actually the progressives and Islamists have one big thing in common. They are completely intolerant towards Christians.

        And by wearing the hijab, Rep. Ilhan Omar proves that she does support Sharia and that belief is antithetical to American ideals. So as long as she holds those beliefs, she does not belong in Congress.

    Well the Russian collusion narrative is absent this morning. Not a single word. The new narrative this morning on MSNBC – Trump is void of decency and spirituality and people of Faith should abandon him. This was followed by lectures by many of the panelists on “what Jesus would do”

    Again, I kid you not. And it gets better:

    Bringing up George Conway’s tweets from earlier in the day, Brzezinski echoed the idea that Trump has a mental disorder, “Tom Nichols, you brought up Oppositional Defiance Disorder, which is a real diagnosis, The Mayo Clinic says, ‘Frequent and persistent pattern of anger, irritability, defiance, or vindictiveness.’ … What’s the political goal? What’s the goal of that type of behavior if it’s not what I just read.”

      George Conway would have Oppositional Defiance Disorder too if he had the kind of 24/7 opposition that Trump has had. Bush 43 simply put up with it. It’s nice to have a President who doesn’t.

    I had an interesting exchange with a a couple people in the waiting area of a local auto repair facility yesterday. I had taken a reading tablet with me and wasn’t paying any attention to the TV, which was tuned to CNN. The guy next to me asked if I minded if he switched it to Fox News Channel. I said that would be fine, and the lady next to him said, “oh, please do.” He said, “I don’t mind watching a news channel with an agenda, but I’d prefer it was a pro-America agenda. and the Communist News Network just doesn’t jive with my values.” I laid down my Nook, and the three of us spent the next half hour discussing politics. Both said they disliked Trump in the beginning, but had grown to at least like his policies if not being overly thrilled about the man himself. What are the odds of 3 people in a waiting room having the identical view?

      I think the vast majority of Americans feel the same way … and the number of Americans who do feel that way increases everyday thanks to the completely unhinged media and the bat shit insane Democrat POTUS candidates.

      We are witnessing political suicide driven by a maniacal obsession of self righteousness.

    This article reveals the shocking lack of awareness many of our “journalists” suffer from:

    CNN journalists were shocked this week to find out their own poll revealed roughly one-third of Latinos, 34%, support President Trump.

    I have many hispanic friends and most of them are more pro Trump than I am. 40 years ago, 75% of Americans trusted the media. Today, 75% of Americans DO NOT trust the media, and that dramatic shift is a direct result of the bias and indoctrination displayed everyday by our poorly educated “journalists”.

    Journalism is a lost art.

      Another CNN poll that Rush was salivating over today shows that Trumps DIS-approval rating at the lowest point in his presidency. They pretty much had to report it since it was their own poll, but Google “CNN poll shows Trump’s disapproval rating at new low,” and see what you get.
