Because if you only got your news from the mainstream media and prominent Democrats on Twitter, you literally would have no idea what happened in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. Media narrative: Some people in Sri Lanka set off bombs in coordinated attacks against other people, resulting in casualties.
That would be like writing a headline that read, “Person Wins 2016 Presidential Election Against Other Person; Some Happy, Some Sad.” Great job, fake news!
The reality, of course, is that Muslim suicide bombers detonated themselves inside Christian churches and killed Christian worshipers on Easter Sunday.
At the end of the day on Easter Sunday, when the death toll of Christians had risen to more than 290 in the wake of the attacks, these were all the headlines on the International page of the New York Times website:
“Bombs Shatter Tranquility of Easter Morning; at Least 200 Die”
“Blasts in Three Sri Lankan Cities Hit Churches and Hotels in Coordinated Attack”
“Here’s What We Know About the Attacks”
“Live Updates: At Least 35 of the dead were foreigners, authorities said”
“Religious Minorities Across Asia Suffer Amid Surge in Sectarian Politics”
“The Attacks Struck Churches, Five-Star Hotels and Other Sites in Multiple Cities”
“Fearing More Violence, Sri Lanka Silences Social Media”
Weird! It’s almost as if the media doesn’t want you to know A) the religion of the attackers, or B) the religion of the victims. Any time the media uses the term “sectarian politics,” it’s an attempt to make a major story sound as boring as possible, so you’ll skim over it or ignore it.
The New York Times sets the agenda for most of the mainstream media, so it should come as no surprise that the Times is the most religiously ignorant news outlet in the entire world. We were “blessed” with a hilarious example of this in the Times’ description of the Paris Fire Department’s chaplain rescuing “a statue of Jesus” from the terrible fire at the Notre Dame cathedral last week.
To their credit, at least the Times didn’t refer to it as “a statue of someone” in this remarkably fake news story.
The Times even invented a quote from the chaplain out of thin air, “I had two priorities: to save the crown of thorns and a statue of Jesus.”
The Times then described the scene as if Indiana Jones was rescuing a relic from some ancient tomb as it’s caving in around him. The Fire Department chaplain dodged embers and falling debris as his colleagues were battling the flames. He grabbed the “statue of Jesus” and ran for the exit.
The New York Times ended the action-movie script with the line, “With the statue in hand, [the chaplain], alone in the nave, gave a benediction to the cathedral, he said.”
The report was so exciting that the New York Times will probably get a Pulitzer for it. They can put it on the shelf right next to their Russian collusion Pulitzer, because it is just as fake. The Fire Department chaplain never said he was rescuing “a statue of Jesus.” He said was trying to save “the body of Christ,” also known as… the communion wafers. He never mentioned the words “statue of Jesus” to the Times.
Being wholly ignorant of the Christian faith, the Times wanted to excite its readers with a more visual story, never realizing that the chaplain was in fact rescuing the crackers that go with the little cups of grape juice. Oops.
But the media’s astounding religious ignorance doesn’t explain the invention of a brand-new term by the globalist elites, which they all suddenly began using on the same day: “Easter worshippers.”
And notice that they all copy-paste it with two ‘P’s, using the European spelling of “worshipers.” Almost as if a foreign-born congresswoman is now writing their talking points!
Failed president Barack Obama: “The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity.”
Hillary Clinton, member of “The Wing” international coven of witches: “I’m praying for everyone affected by today’s horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka.”
Julian Castro, 2020 Democrat candidate for president: “The evil of these attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka is deeply saddening.”
Colorado Governor Jared Polis (Democrat): “Heartbreaking to learn about the attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka.”
Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MN): “Such a horrific attack on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka.”
Rep. Greg Stanton (D-AZ): “The horrific attacks on Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are heartbreaking.”
Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA): “Deeply saddened over the horrific acts of violence against Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka.”
What in the world is an “Easter worshipper” anyway? It sounds like a lady with a shrine to Cadbury Crème Eggs in her basement.
Obviously, it’s a deliberate attempt to stamp out even mentioning Christianity in the public square. None of the global elitists seemed to have that problem after the recent shooting in New Zealand, which by the way pales in comparison to the attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.
After the New Zealand attack, all the elites put on burqas and declared, “You poor Muslims! It’s awful that you innocent, peaceful Muslims were attacked in a mosque while minding your own business! I stand in solidarity with you poor, victimized Muslims! You Muslims are great! It’s too bad that Trump’s speeches inspired one of his dirty white nationalist supporters to murder innocent Muslims in, uh… New Zealand! Trump’s fault! Allahu Akbar!”
And in one more example of the rabid Jew-hating Ilhan Omar setting the tone for the rest of America, the New York Yankees have banned Kate Smith’s rendition of “God Bless America” from playing during games. This was a tradition that began after the 9/11 attacks.
But after social justice warriors dug up a couple of controversial and admittedly sort-of racist songs by Smith from the 1930s – two songs out of more than 1,000 tunes that she recorded in her long and productive life – Smith is banned.
Kate Smith died in 1986 and there’s a statue of her in Philadelphia near the Wells Fargo Center. That statue is now covered in a head-to-toe burqa. “God Bless America?” Why would He, when we act like this?
Just remember, some people did something to Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka. That’s all you need to know, according to the mainstream media and Ilhan Omar.
