Virginian Pilot ignores the grief stricken families, according to them the REAL victims were Muslims
My local Pravda - the Virginian Pilot - spent scant attention to the grief of the victims of the devout Muslims who killed 14 people in San Bernardino last week. Instead it devoted lots of space to what it considers the REAL victims of Jihad: Muslims in the U.S.
It had a three columns with the headline: From Coast to Coast, American Muslims find new resentment. It describes the horror that was a zoning meeting in Fredricksburg at which someone said that "no one wants your evil cult." It surprised Samer Shalaby, trustee for the Islmaic Center of Fredricksburg, and engineer by day. I was surprised too. Most Americans have been so cowed by political corectness that "If you see something, say something" has been changed slightly to "If you see something, say nothing." That was the advice followed by the resident of San Bernadino who noted a number of Middle Eastern men going in and out of the home of the devout Muslims who later massacred their neighbors.
A second article focuses on the inevitable "backlash" that the press always predicts but never seems to happen. San Bernardino Mourns its Dead, Calls for Unity, Not Rancor." After a passing reference to the 14 killed by the devout Muslim couple the reporters focus on the "terror" that Muslims are facing. It seems the pressing question is who radicalized who and what their motives could possibly have been. To the Liberal mind, it's all a great mystery. Despite 26,000-and-counting acts of Islamic terrorism throughout the world since 9/11/2001 the members of the press are still puzzled that devout Muslims would take the teachings of the Koran literally and kill infidels.
And then they run this cartoon, accusing the media of wild speculation. The cartoon is ambiguous enough that you are not quite sure if it refers to the media's frantic attempts to assign the blame for the massacre to the NRA, anti-abortion groups, the Constitution, Christians who offer prayers for the victims and their families, or even one of the victims. One thing the media did not want to do was speculate that the killers were Muslim. Which is why the dead and their families are now disappearing and Muslims are now being brought forward as the real victims.
You can't force people to see things they don't want to see. Liberals are in denial about the evolution of the current state of Islam. Even as hundreds of thousands proudly proclaim their allegiance to Islam and go on Jihad, Liberalism calls them liars. Instead, they have created a new brand of Muslim, one who practices not Islam but "terrorism," a-creed-that-has-nothing-to-do-with-Islam.
The irreligious are defining the religion of the religious. It would be funny if it were not so dangerous.
