Natural News:"Astonishing bias: 452 Islamic terror attacks in 31 countries just THIS YEAR (so far) and zero coverage from the media"

(Natural News) The vast majority of Americans have come to expect biased coverage from the so-called “mainstream media,” and what’s more, they have come to expect that coverage will be designed to advance the Democrats’ Left-wing agenda.

That’s according to some of the most recent polling data available.

But additional evidence also supports the contention that what the media tends to cover aren’t subjects that are of vital interest or importance to most Americans, and that the media covers ‘narratives’ it helps create, failing — intentionally — to give equal weight to similar stories.

The most recent example involves how American journalists initially covered the terrorist attack in New Zealand. Immediately after news of the attack first broke, the Democrat-aligned media filled their airwaves and bandwidth with far-Left pundits and politicians, as well as their own hosts and reporters, who were all quick to blame POTUS Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim “rhetoric.”

In the days that followed, the same Left-wing media outlets hammered on the narrative that 28-year-old alleged attacker Brenton Tarrant is a “white nationalist” and “right-wing extremist” who hates Muslims — as though only white, right-wing extremists are behaving as terrorists these days and the only people they are murdering are people of Islamic faith.

The fact is, however, that by far, the bulk of terrorist attacks this year — and in recent years — have been committed by Muslim extremists, and often against followers of other faiths. But our media doesn’t often report those and when they do, reports are quick, superficial, and fact-based. No narratives, no outraged guest analysts, and no lecturing, finger-wagging hosts.

As reported by Natural News:

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. But you probably didn’t hear about this horrific religious massacre because the perpetrators were violent Islamic terrorists that targeted Christians, which means the Leftist media pretty much completely ignored it.

In all, “there have been 453 Islamic terror attacks in 31 different countries so far this year – and these are just the ones that have been reported,” Natural News continued. “In total, just in 2019 so far, there have been a shocking 1,956 people murdered by Islamic terrorists, and another 2,019 injured, according to TheReligionOfPeace.com.”

Let us also make note of the fact that while the attack on the Mosque in New Zealand received wide coverage and once again began the media's demand for gun control that same media refused to cover more than 3,000 deaths of Christians committed by Muslims in Africa!

Being from the Islands, I hadn't met many Muslims when I first hit the Coast long, long ago. It was great at the Beach, but, I needed money and got a job in downtown LA, and if any of you have ever taken that bus ride- well, it might as well be to Minneapolis. Anyway, I met these other brown dudes at work, and they were the friendliest, loving, most peaceful people I had ever come across. They lived way out toward South Central, but started driving all the way to Santa Monica to pick me up and take me to work with them, then wait until we were all done and give me a ride home. They didn't drink, so they just dropped me off near the clubs and bid Aloha. I sure miss you Ahmad and Said.

I may agree with Doc on some of this, not on the New Zealand reporting,which was appropriate, but on the lack of reporting of the bombings of such sites as a Roman Catholic cathedral. 

Christian deaths overseas are woefully underreported. I think there are a couple of reasons for this. One is that most of the victims aren’t White. Another is that Americans and Europeans for that matter are so used huge Christian majorities where they live that they forget that there are parts of the world where Christians are vulnerable minorities. CBN talks about those victims, like the ancient Christian communities in Iraq victimized by ISIS and the Coptic communities attacked by the then Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood government. CBN is right, these events deserve press. A vulnerable minority is a vulnerable minority, and being Christian shouldn’t disqualify them from being seen that way. Here I am agreeing with Doc and Pat Robertson but every once in a while they’re right. 

Not that I agree at all with Doc’s assessment of New Zealand. The country has zero history of Islam-based terrorism. None. There was no way to justify this attack.The fact is that the sole episode of religious terrorism that’s happened there was perpetrated by a right-wing White guy on a room full of peaceful worshippers. 

By the way, for all those people who quote Allahu Akhbar, the closest English idiomatic translation would be Praise The Lord.

Polynesians don't even attack Christians, who fucked us over completely, much less Muslims. The convict descendants of Australia are another thing altogether. Rome and Christianity is and always has been bullshit. Constantine converted for military power, his Mommy made up Jerusalem tourist destinations pretty much all by herself. Christ dragging a cross around town? My eye. However, the real Christians, the Orthodox who hid behind Constantine's walls for over a thousands years, have been absolutely driven out of "Turkey" by the same fine bunch who slaughtered the Armenians. Jamaicans are Coptics, with a straight line to Ethiopia, yet, until recently, were persecuted for believing too strongly in the "Burning Bush"

There have probably been more than 452 terrorUSt drone attacks just in one country, Somalia, since the first of this year.  What few terrorUSt reports there have been about such attacks claims everyone killed or maimed were anti-terrorUSt "islamic radicals", all male; no women or children were harmed other than they may lost an evil husband, uncle, brother or grandfather in the terroUSt attack.

Exponentionally "by far, the bulk of terrorUSt attacks this year — and in recent years — have been committed by" the United States, but this year saudUSraeli terrorUSt$ are catching up with U.S. neolib$ and neocon$ by terrorizing just Yemeni citizenry alone now that $audUSraeli have temporarily exhausted cities and villages in Syria to reduce to rubble and rotting corpses.

Such donkey shit as this: "you probably didn’t hear about this horrific religious massacre because the perpetrators were violent Islamic terrorists that targeted Christians, which means the Leftist media pretty much completely ignored it." you DV positively attribute to another.  You are infatuated in a pathologically hateful and vengeful way toward "the Left", "the Leftist media", "the Left wing" and in doing so you have with neglible resistance been allowed to never admit that i am aware that you are Right-wing,, not Lite Right like Pelosi Schumerite$, but hard right, more like Trent Lott than Bob Dole.

Moki ikom I'm not infatuated with anything simply because I find reports of the intentional negligence of the fake news media who ignored the atrocities committed against Christians by ISIS who ravaged centuries old Christian Syrian and Iraq cities while defacing their Cathedrals and grave yards! But we did hear about how John Kerry scolded Israelis as Palestinians were running over Jewish citizens with cars, attacking innocent people with knives, and Palestinian students in California were making death threats against Israeli students and being allowed to do it even though that is a federal offense punishable by imprisonment! You are cherry picking what you want to believe and what you want to take issue over and when someone like myself mentions REALITY you want to attack me for it! Open your little mind!

Kosher get with the times! There hasn't been a Christian majority in the Middle East for decades and as Muslims have gained ground, population, and political clout there has been more and more terrorism and violence that is an academic fact!

Hey, Shmuck, learn to read. I agreed with you on that.  Are you so used to my disagreeing with you that you didn’t notice that?
