Once again, the mainstream media has decided that their own leftist, globalist narrative is far more important than relaying the truth to the American people.
As a crazed man unleashed hell upon a passenger train in Portland, Oregon this week, the mainstream media was poised and ready to repurpose his heinous crime for their own good. The substance of the attack was brutal: A lone attacker with a knife stabbed and killed two innocent civilians during an extremely profane and religiously charged rant on a commuter railway. Immediately, however, the liberal-leaning leftist media seized upon the actions of Jeremy Joseph Christian, selectively editing his pre-attack tirade from an assault on all religions of the world to one, singular sect.
You guessed it: Islam.
“The establishment media has seized upon Jeremy Joseph Christian, especially given his surname, as an example of their false claim that every religion has ‘extremists,’ and Islam isn’t singular in this. In reality, this is one part of Jeremy Joseph Christian’s rant: ‘You don’t like it? You got a problem with what I’m saying? F*** all you Christians and Muslims and f****** Jews , f****** die. Burn you at the stake… f****** die.’
“But when there are no actual instances of ‘Islamophobia,’ as we have seen so many times before, they have to be invented to buttress the Left’s failing narrative that Muslims are frequently targeted and victimized in the U.S.”
The media has been extremely busy trying to uphold the unwieldy tenets of the Barack Obama administration’s utter capitulation to radical Islam in the age of Trump. Where Obama wanted the United States to simply ignore the growing radicalization of the muslim faith, the media began to lead Americans down that ignorant and foolish path. Turning a blind eye to one of the most proficient and violent movements in the history of the world is absolutely and unequivocally dumbfounding.
Yet, day in and day out, the media continues to spin, mold, cut, and slice their way through the occurrences of our modern world, singling out the most heart wrenching and tender bits for their display case of primetime television, while throwing the nutritional and plentiful scraps in a heap on the floor. If it doesn’t fit in the box that the globalists have provided them, it disappears.
That is precisely what has happened here with Jeremy Joseph Christian. This obviously disturbed human being is being labeled as an “Islamophobe” based on a mere one-thirtieth of the content of what he truly said on that train. Yet, that is the morsel that the media has chosen for the American people to hear due to its continuity with the storyline being fed to us by democrats, leftists, and the like.
If we examine his rant more closely, Islam didn’t even receive the expletives that other religions did during his tirade.
