The Mainstream Media, Gaza, and Ferguson
Monday, September 01st, 2014 | Author:

It’s time to focus on the media’s disproportionate response to certain events.

The media’s current focus on the shooting of a black teenager by a white policeman in Ferguson, Missouri seems also designed to divert attention away from the big picture… In Chicago this past weekend, seven people were killed and twenty-nine others wounded due to gun violence. All of the victims were black—most of them young…

If the mainstream media people were as concerned as they profess to be about the lives of young blacks, we would see numerous TV specials about the black family crisis, and instead of sending platoons of reporters and cameramen to Ferguson, CNN would dispatch them to cover the daily mayhem in Chicago. But that would require revising and updating the narrative that has served the media so well, and that, apparently, is just too much trouble…

Some of the same reporters who were embedded in Gaza are now embedded in Ferguson. The media’s concern over innocent civilians in Gaza has now shifted to an innocent teenager in Missouri… The narrative is also the same. According to the media’s one-size-fits-all explanation, both rockets fired from Gaza and projectiles hurled at Ferguson store windows are caused by poverty and institutional oppression…

just as the media avoids telling the story of black-on-black violence, it rarely focuses on the fact that the vast majority of Muslim deaths worldwide are caused by other Muslims. To do so would undermine the established narrative that Islam is a religion of peace and justice.

Nothing is Bad About Moslems
Friday, August 29th, 2014 | Author:

The Manchurian Marxist Moslem can’t seem to square reality with his skewed view of the world… An excerpt from James Taranto:

The president kept his promise of clarity only for a few sentences: “They have rampaged across cities and villages–killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children, and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims–both Sunni and Shia–by the thousands. They have murdered Muslims–both Sunni and Shia–by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can for no other reason than they practice a different religion. They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people.”

But then he descended into sophistry: “So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day.”

Hmm. ISIS both “speaks for no religion” and targets “Christians and religious minorities” because “they practice a different religion.” Different from what? Then the categorical statement: “No faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” Then the curiously qualified statement: “No just God would stand for” ISIS’s actions.

On its own, Obama’s claim about “No just God” would appear to be a denial of God’s existence (or a denial that God is just)–that is, a statement of the problem of evil from the point of view of a religious skeptic. But in context, the statement is surely meant to be understood as another way of denying that ISIS is motivated by religion–that no true believer would commit such atrocities.

Summary View on World Politics
Thursday, August 21st, 2014 | Author:

The guy who made up the apt summary description for Obama — Manchurian Marxist Moslem — told me this one about his summary view of world politics today:

The Blacks want to rob me

The Moslems want to kill me

And the Liberal Jews tell me it’s all my fault…
