Update: This article was written last night. This morning we woke up to another horrific Islamic terrorist attack in Mali (in Africa). The news stations are sporatically reporting on this, but breaking away to other stories. They just said that many people are being slaughtered one by one on each hotel floor – and then they broke away to something else. When the attack in Paris was happening, the broadcasters were frozen on that story – speaking of nothing else. They stayed on the ground in France throughout the horrifying events. WHY are they not doing the same in Africa? This is shameful.
Sometimes I wonder if Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson even read the news. Oh – but wait – When there is a mass slaughter of Christians in Nigeria or Kenya, the major news sources do not consider this to be “News worthy.” Sickening.
IN KENYA LAST APRIL
“Two injured students being helped off the university campus by Kenyan soldiers.
Five people are detained by police on suspicion of being involved in the massacre of almost 150 students at a university in Kenya.
Interior Ministry spokesman Mwenda Njoka said on Twitter yesterday that security agencies arrested three people trying to cross into Somalia.
The arrests bring the number of held suspects to five as two of them were arrested at the college. Four gunmen were killed during the 15-hour siege.
He said the suspects are associates of Mohamed Mohamud, also known as Dulyadin Gamadhere, a former teacher at a Kenyan Madrassa Islamic school who authorities say orchestrated the Garissa attack.” – source
Just as a side note, it took the Kenyan Police force over 2 hours to respond to this atrocity.
Amazingly, these headlines are from the Washington Post – (D.C’s answer to the NY Times):
“The Islamic State wasn’t the deadliest terror group last year. Boko Haram was.”
You can read that piece here:
I do believe that I am asking a legitimate question here. Why is the slaughter of Black people in Africa not as news worthy as the slaughter of Whites in France? This bothers me greatly.
Do Black lives really matter, or is it a narrative that is driven by the left for other reasons? Where is the left when these horrific killings by Boko Haram and Al Shabaab take place? Most people do not even know that those students were massacred in cold blood, and that those in authority purposely took over 2 hours to come to stop the carnage! The press knew. They know everything. They pushed it to the back burner.
I think that we who love the Lord know the answer to the question I have been posing in this article. The world turns away mostly because these students from Kenya were Christians. But I still think that there is a despicable double standard in the press, and that is that Black deaths at the hands of Islamist terrorists do not sell newspapers like White deaths do, and this is SO wrong. Oh, when a Black death happens in a city in the U.S., the mainstream media are all over it! But 150 students in Kenya – not so much.
THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT
I’m not one to dance around my point. The Black Lives Matter movement was funded by the world’s number one “agitator” George Soros. He’s always lurking in the shadows, and jumps at the chance to stir the pot and start racial unrest and riots.
Actually, it’s our Divider in Chief who calls the shots, and Soros reaches into his deep pockets to fund these Alinskyesque radical leftist movements. The foundation of this movement was to put the blame on the police force for the criminal acts of young Black men – in other words we should turn a blind eye to lawlessness, and take a hard look at the men and women in blue who put their lives on the line every day to keep innocent people safe.
What did the students in the school in Kenya do to deserve being gunned down by Islamist demons? They didn’t break any laws – they were Christians.
Did anyone see Barack Obama say a word about the slaughter of 150 students at this school in Kenya? Not me.
