By now, gentle readers, you’ve surely heard of the multiple terror attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday that killed more than three hundred, including some American tourists. Multiple suicide bombers in churches and hotels coordinated their attacks throughout the country. Who could have done such a thing? Who could possibly be responsible? As usual, the Media pretended ignorance and demonstrated yet again, they are suffering from terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome, as The Washington Examiner explains:
A BuzzFeed News journalist suggested on Twitter there would be more outrage from President Trump’s administration over the deadly Sri Lanka bombings if the victims were white.
BuzzFeed News world editor Miriam Elder tweeted hours after explosions on Easter Sunday killed hundreds of people at churches and hotels in the South Asia country.
And how did the evil, racist Trump respond to the attacks?
Unlike Elder, I’m just not seeing the racism. No doubt, I’m not blessed with her highly attuned sense of social justice, nor her moral and intellectual superiority. But perhaps other members of the Trump Administration are racist?
Hmmm. Still not seeing it. Fortunately, Normal Americans remain rational:
Elder’s tweet was ‘ratioed,’ meaning the number of comments vastly outnumbered retweets and likes — a sign of widespread negative reaction. Multiple users criticized Elder for her near-instant politicization of the attacks that has killed more than 200 people, including some American citizens.
At last count, some 300 have died, and something near double that wounded. Barack Obama, Democrats current stealth messiah, added his concern:
And Hillary Clinton, who Democrats see as something less than a messiah, also added the power of her great intellect and morality:
There seems to be something missing in the comments of Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton. What could it be?
That’s it! Thanks, Sanders. They, and the rest of the media, declined to identify the killers. They also declined to identity the victims, except by the bizarre euphemism, “Easter worshippers.”
It took several days before even the Sri Lankans confirmed that the attacks were carried out by domestic Islamists. They had advance warning and ignored it. They even know the local Imam responsible for the attacks. It took yet a few more days to confirm they received outside help from more sophisticated and well-heeled Islamists. After ISIS claimed responsibility, they could hardly avoid reporting at least that.
And who are these “Easter Worshippers?” They worship Easter?! What could that mean?
One need not be Sherlock Holmes to figure out mass attacks against Christians in Christian churches—on Easter Sunday–were likely not committed by Baptists. Everything about the attacks bore the marks of the religion of peace, which routinely, but peacefully, murders everyone not of the religion of peace.
Democrats/Socialists also shrink from saying anything about Christianity or Christians, except when they’re slandering them, of course. They, like vampires shrinking from the presence of a cross, now avoid even saying the word “Christian.” Part of this is surely hatred of normal Americans, and particularly of Christ, Christians, and the foundations of Western Civilization. The rest is a refusal to admit they are badly, disastrously wrong about the nature of Islam and Islamists. They are more worried that people will think badly of Muslims when they slaughter innocents, than the fact Muslims are slaughtering innocents, and engaging in a world-wide campaign of persecution and murder of Christians. They also seek to hide their ties to and support of murderous Islamists and Islamist regimes.
The Bablyon Bee provides brilliantly biting satire on the issue:
On a special politicians’ episode of Wheel of Fortune, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton nearly took home the grand prize. She was on the last puzzle of the regular rounds of the game, which read, CHRISTI_N. The audience began to cheer as it appeared Clinton had finally won something.
But, as is usual for Clinton, she snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, and shouted ‘Easter worshiper!’ instead of the obvious answer, which was ‘Christian.’
Not only do these people hate Christianity, they know virtually nothing about the faith and people they hate. Christians celebrate Easter; no one worships the occasion. They worship Christ, and celebrate his resurrection, his triumph over death, and his sacrifice, which bought forgiveness for the sins of Mankind. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu West) went so far as to claim Christ was a Palestinian. Palestinians are Arabs, and Arabs didn’t arrive in Israel until some seven centuries after Christ’s death. Christ was a Jew, who spoke Aramaic (possibly Hebrew), not an Arab Muslim. Islam didn’t exist until the early 600s.
But what are such trifles compared to the purity and wonder of contemporary Socialist thought?
