After Charlottesville, the Constitution must be our guide



The Constitution is the guide which I will never abandon.” ~ George Washington

I am shaken, rattled to the bone by the events that took place on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia. While I have, unfortunately, become somewhat accustomed to seeing the vicious “Antifa” fascists, I am not accustomed to seeing large groups of white supremacists: nor am I accustomed to seeing warring extremist factions engaged in violent conflict on the streets. America, we have an extremist problem.

For the past few years I have become increasingly concerned over the possibility of growing numbers among white supremacist circles. With the level of misguided, racial hatred toward white men having become more common, I suppose it was only a matter of time before opportunistic, dark, and malevolent figures such as Richard Spencer began preying upon those feeling disenfranchised, harboring deep resentments, and perpetuating the self-consuming philosophy of victimhood. The image of those men, marching in torchlit rows like the dark army of Mordor, keeps replaying in my mind, ushering in a sick feeling in my stomach. It sickens me. It frightens me.

I am repulsed. I am horrified. I am sad. I am shaken.

I don’t know exactly what draws people to totalitarian ideologies that are so commonly characterized by the hatred of one group towards another and the subsequent dehumanization of others based on class, or skin color, or intellectual ability. I can say that these ideologies tend to first attract those who harbor the most anger in their hearts with the least amount of life experiences under their belts, as well as those who are generally maladjusted to life’s everyday demands and routine interpersonal requirements. The philosophies of the resentful and hardened hearts are dangerous indeed.

Whatever the compounding causes are for the undeniable increase in radical activities and allegiances in America at present, there is no denying that our society is plagued by the totalitarian, fracturing forces of anger, resentment, and hatred which threatens America’s hard-won liberties. In times of chaos, our liberties are not only under threat from the actions of hate-driven radical groups, but also from the possibility of our own overreaction to the actions of those repugnant groups at the fringes of our society. Therefore, the responsibility for guiding a chaos-ridden society falls on the shoulders of those of present-mind, of cognizant and clear-thinking.

Luckily, the US Constitution was written troubled for times like these. Difficult though it may be, we mustn’t allow our own eagerness to prohibit the vile expression of the grotesque factions of our society to damage our own rights and liberties. Hateful speech must be met not with repression, but with truthful speech and condemnations; violence met with non-violence, law-breaking met with law-enforcement. Now is the time for shining greatness and bravery, for leading by example. Now is the time for upholding the Constitution. Though we all may be feeling deeply shaken and rattled to the bone, we must preserve our freedoms. As Abraham Lincoln wisely stated, “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”

CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists



CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists

The narrative has already been set by American mainstream media on how they’re supposed to handle the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday. There are certain things that can be said and others that must be avoided at all costs. With reporting that has spanned nearly 24 hours and included 67 updates to the story, guess how many times CNN blamed Islamic terrorists for the attack.

If you guessed anything higher than zero, you gave CNN way too much credit.

I scanned the entire series of live updates they’ve been doing since the news broke. It’s all within one long story, making it easy to search for individual words, so I did. The results were depressing but expected. Even at this late hour, they still have not acknowledged the possibility that the act was committed by Islamic terrorists.

The closest they came to blaming radical Islamic terrorists in their primary coverage story was a mention in a quote by Diplomatic editor Nic Robertson in which he notes the obvious – that it has the “hallmarks” of Islamic terrorism – but then quickly notes that there are no known radical Islamic terrorist groups in the area.

“It is a very confused picture in terms of who may or may not be responsible. The Sri Lankan civil war ended 10 years ago, a 25 year long civil war, and the Tamil separatists there were a secular group. It would be very, very unlike them and their tactics ever to attack churches and particularly on such a holy day.”

“It has the hallmarks — or is intended to have the hallmarks — of Islamic extremists. But, again, these kinds of groups are unknown in Sri Lanka.”

This last notion is absolutely untrue, of course, as we now know the Chief of Police in Sri Lanka issued a warning about the Nations Thawahid Jaman (NTJ), an Islamist group led by Mohomad Saharan.

The CNN report mentioned the word “Muslim” four times: twice to note the percentage of the population of Sri Lanka that is Muslim, once to warn against reprisals against Muslims, and another to note there have been attacks against Muslims by Buddhist groups. Not once was it even speculated the attacks were carried out by Muslims.

The leftist narrative must be maintained and CNN will not break their allegiances. This was just some people that did something. It may look like an apple, but CNN will scream “banana, banana, banana” for as long as they can.

Since leftist media won’t say it: Radical Islamic terrorists murdered hundreds of Christians



Since leftist media wont say it Radical Islamic terrorists murdered hundreds of Christians

Update: CNN still hasn’t acknowledge the possibility it was Islamic terrorism after 67 updates over the last 24 hours.

Original Story:

The dramatic shift in how mainstream media characterizes terrorist attacks over the years reached what I hope is the pinnacle of their obfuscation today. The terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka against Christian churches and areas where Christians were likely to gather were committed on Easter Sunday by Muslims in a city known for radicalization. This was a clear and unambiguous attack by radical Islamic terrorists specifically targeting Christians.

But you’ll have a hard time coming to that conclusion if all you’re reading or watching is leftist mainstream media.

The reporting today has been in stark contrast to the immediate labeling and narrative-building surrounding the terrorist attacks in New Zealand mosques last month. There was zero doubt based on media reporting that the attacks were targeting Muslims. But today, it’s hard to even find the word “Christian” in any of the posts or news reports. On top of that, there’s a stark difference when reading the Tweets of condolences from leftists who refuse to acknowledge this as an attack against Christianity despite the immediate and crystal clear labeling of the New Zealand mosque incidents as attacks targeting Muslims.

Some of this was noted by Brittany Pettibone:

OAN’s Jack Posobiec added that a new phrase has been coined by the media regarding the Notre-Dame fire:

Was this the same response they were giving following the Christchurch attacks? No. As Imam Mohamad Tawhidi noted, the differences were very clear.

Why do the media and leftist politicians do this? Why are they quick to label attacks against any other religious group exactly as they appear, but they’re so unwilling to call out any attacks against Christians as attacks against Christians?

This is the time we’re in, folks. The left has a narrative they want jammed into our heads and that narrative has no room for acknowledging violence and persecution is committed against Christians. The only stories that fit their narratives are stories that can blame Christians for wrongdoing. In those cases, the perpetrators’ status as Christians is broadcast loud and clear. But if Christians are victims, the left will go to extreme lengths to negate that fact from the record.

Of all the major news outlets, I was only able to find one that didn’t shy away from the truth. The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board stands alone in declaring the intended victims of this attack as who they are and why they were targeted.

WSJ Editorial Board

The intentional suppression of what happened, who committed it, and who was targeted is beyond insulting. The terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka are being framed by the media as some people did something.

Romans 8:18 – ‘sufferings of this present time’



Romans 8:18 sufferings of this present time

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. – Romans 8:18 (KJV)

There has been suffering around the world since the fall of man to sin. While this suffering will persist until the second coming of Christ, we are to remember that it our suffering is not to be regarded as important. It doesn’t matter what hardships face us. The reward at the end is so much greater than anything we can be put through in this life.
