WaPo Tries to Trivialize Christian Persecution

What exactly does the term “far right” mean? At the Washington Post, it means anyone who is not so far left as to be delusional. For example, anyone who acknowledges that the Islamic terror attacks in Sri Lanka that killed over 300 on Easter were part of a bigger picture qualifies as “far right.” Seriously:

The Washington Post suggested that reporting on this terrorism against Christians is far-right paranoia.

This spin was created by quoting frequently demonized figures like Marine Le Pen, Katie Hopkins, and Frank Gaffney, who like most of us are opposed to Muslims murdering people for being Christian.

Then they linked this to Trump supporters on Reddit who objected to the apparent inability of Obama and Hillary to type the word “Christian.” This serves to trivialize the carnage, and to politicize it by implying that anyone who puts it within the greater context of the escalating 1,400-year-long war Islam has been waging against Christianity must be a Trump supporter, the ickiest type of person imaginable from the viewpoint of WaPo’s liberal elite readership.

Stand by for the most staggeringly stupid piece of misinformation I have read in WaPo yet, published the day after the Sri Lanka attacks:

“Although Christian minorities are targeted around the world, analysts say that the vast majority of terrorism victims globally are Muslims.”

As kids used to say, no duh. That’s because Muslims tend to live in Muslim countries, and are therefore surrounded by terrorists, who constantly blow each other up over internal disputes within Islam. The attempt to imply that man bites dog stories like the Christchurch mosque shootings are more common that Islamic terrorism against Christians may be the most shameful lie WaPo has ever printed.

Here’s something WaPo won’t print:

In 2017, the Christian organization Open Doors reported that Christianity was the most persecuted religion in the world. Islamic oppression fueled two-thirds of global Christian persecution in 2017.

Also in 2017, the Catholic organization Aid to the Church in Need reported that persecution and genocide of Christians across the world was worse “than at any time in history.” Christian persecution worsened between 2015 and 2017, and has grown more violent than at any point in modern times.

Acknowledging this places you at risk of being denounced as “far right” by the same Islamophilic, Cultural Marxist media establishment that manages to pass itself off as “mainstream.”
