(Tea Party PAC) – Last week, a twisted, violent mass-murderer gunned down 50 Muslims as they worshipped in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The eyes of the world immediately all turned on the horrific incident, followed-up closely with the opining of left-wing outlets and pundits who all blamed President Trump, Republicans, supporters of strict immigration policy, and you and me for a white Australian “eco-fascist” turning a gun on a group of Bangladeshi Muslims.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media has systematically been ignoring the mass murder of Christians around the world.
Last year, 4,136 Christians were murdered for faith-related reasons last year. This breaks down to an average of 11 per day.
In fact, in the last three weeks alone, 120 Nigerian Christians were murdered with guns or machetes and of all the major outlets in the US, only Breitbart reported on it.
As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.
The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.
Breitbart is certainly a far cry from so-called “mainstream media.” How many millions of Americans have absolutely no idea this is happening?
And more important, why aren’t any major outlets reporting on these massacres? It certainly wasn’t the first time.
Last June, twelve full villages of Christians in Central Nigeria were totally wiped out by jihadis.
In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.
As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.
I’m guessing this is the first time most readers will have heard of this.
You also probably never heard that 20 Christians were killed in the Philippines when a Roman Catholic Church was bombed:
On January 27, Muslim extremists bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral on the Philippine island of Jolo, killing some 20 people and injuring dozens of others.
Why didn’t this receive international media coverage and condemnation from major political leaders around the world? How on earth was this not as big of a story as the mosque attack in New Zealand.
There are roughly 2.2 billion Christians worldwide making up 31% of the global population. Is it not a concern of everyone on the globe when Christians are targeted and killed for their faith?
We haven’t even mentioned China yet, where the persecution of Christians has peaked in recent years. Officials have been going house to house and replacing pictures of Jesus Christ “with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping” according to CNS News:
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to harass and persecute Christians and, in recent months, has taken to removing pictures of Jesus Christ from inside homes and replacing them with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping.
In addition, Communist officials have removed Christian symbols and phrases on the outside of homes and replaced them with phrases praising socialist materialism.
That’s not all. They’re also burning Bibles and shutting down or even destroying any churches that don’t comply with the Chinese government’s demands.
Earlier this year, in fact, a Chinese mega church was literally blown up with dynamite:
Chinese authorities blew up a well-known Christian megachurch earlier this year, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party.
Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province.
Christian persecution is literally as old as the religion itself, but the more the mainstream media bends over backwards to Islamic apologists and the left-wing narrative of the poor, persecuted Muslim, terror attacks and government oppression of Christians will be ignored.
“So far in 2019, there have been 453 Islamic terror attacks in which 1,956 people have been murdered. But you will never hear those numbers from the mainstream media,” writes Michael Snyder of The End of the American Dream, whose article inspired this report.
“Instead, when the mainstream media talks about Bible-believing Christians it is almost always an attack story.”
The mainstream media isn’t just ignoring the persecution of Christians worldwide, they’re becoming complicit in anti-Christian sentiment worldwide.
But somehow Trump is to blame for the attack in New Zealand?
It’s sheer insanity.
