No, folks, there is really nothing to see here, according to the liberal media. But, if you would like to tear off your blindfold and see some of the real cultural implications of radical Islam on Christians, look no further than the rural parts of Nigeria during the last couple of months.
I take freedom of religion seriously. You should, too. The alt-left wants nothing better than to start using religious freedom against the right. It’s part of their campaign against Christians in the U.S. I know, some alt-left idiot is about to read about this and pretend Christians are mistreated in the U.S. like they are in the Mideast.
They aren’t. Even the Obama administration admitted Christians are being genocided in the Mideast. Things aren’t anywhere near as bad here. But in a free society built on freedom of religion, the attacks on Christian faith are worrisome.
On Friday’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough and Washington Post columnist David Ignatius tried to explain the current anti-government protests in Iran by painting a broader picture of a “red state Iran” and a “blue state Iran.” Scarborough described “red state Iran” as a place that “wanted to keep the mullahs in charge,” whereas “[b]lue state Iran wanted to move Iran into the 20th century.”
Liberals at The Washington Post didn’t seem to have a Merry Christmas this year. They were seriously unhappy that anyone would utter the “lie” that President Trump made it safe to say “Merry Christmas” after eight years of the Obamas sending out White House “Happy Holidays” cards. But the Post also promoted an author saying "there is no Jesus, there is no God"...unlike promoting the idea Muhammad did not exist.
The New York Times Roger Cohen composed an inspired masterpiece of anti-Trump oratorical obloquy: “Wondering, If This Is America.” Cohen, an international columnist for the paper born in London, mustered his high indignation not only of President Trump (aka “Mussolini’s understudy”) but of America itself. Cohen sold his Saturday edition article on Twitter as “Turkmenistan-on-the-Potomac: If This Is America.”
New York Times writer Max Fisher’s “The Interpreter” column on President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was crammed with historical falsehoods: “Jerusalem, Explained: Why Trump’s Decision Matters and What’s Next.” Fisher has previously used his odd “Interpreter” perch to go to amazing lengths to suggest that there's some doubt as to the motive of radical Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando in June 2016. His latest long piece relies on blatant omissions and misstatements to convince readers Trump’s decision is unfair and politically cynical.
On Thursday’s Morning Joe, the show’s liberal panelists were still reeling from the aftermath of President Trump’s speech yesterday publicly pledging to uphold Jerusalem’s status as the capital of Israel. MSNBC’s morning pundits were not upset at the violent protests being orchestrated by Palestinian authorities though. Instead, they blamed Trump for “setting the Middle East on fire.”
President Trump, fulfilling a promise that other presidents have made but failed to keep, recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and started the process of moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv. Times reporters were predictably aghast, both downplaying Jewish ties to Jerusalem and warning of violence and endangement of the non-existent "peace process."
Less than half an hour before Trump made his speech today recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell brought NBC Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel onto her MSNBC show to discuss the implications of the President’s announcement. Reporting from the Palestinian Territories in Ramallah, Engel went to great pains to promote his hosts’ perspective on Trump’s upcoming speech, lamenting Palestinians’ lost “dream” of “a future capital.” Engel also characterized Trump’s Jerusalem policy shift recognizing that “the Israelis are right” as “profoundly unsettling.”
Wednesday’s Morning Joe devoted a significant portion of its broadcast to covering President Trump’s upcoming speech that will officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In response to reports that the Palestinian Authority is reacting to this development by calling for potentially violent protests and a “day of anger,” MSNBC’s top liberal pundits knew precisely where the blame for any resultant violence should fall – Trump, of course.
Imagínese cómo fue presenciar un intenso bombardeo aéreo durante la era de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Se trata de una metáfora apropiada para ilustrar el trato al que varias de las cadenas noticiosas hispanoparlantes de la nación someten a sus televidentes mediante su cobertura de prácticamente cualquier cosa relacionada al presidente Trump: una historia sesgada tras otra, destinada a estallar con toda su fuerza mediante contenido que carece certeza, imparcialidad y muchas veces, hasta sentido común. ¿Verdaderamente piensan que las audiencias son tan incautas o que todos comparten la misma agenda de odio de los liberales?
Imagine what it felt like to be on the ground during a World War II era bombing raid. Well, that is an apt metaphor for what several of the country’s Spanish-language television networks submit their viewers to in their coverage of practically everything related to President Trump: one story after another fully loaded with bias, exploding with content that lacks accuracy, fairness and often, even common sense. Do they truly believe their viewers are that gullible or all share the same liberal hate agenda?
