Media Manipulation, Bring It On

Columnist Mark Steyn reviewed the headlines from major U.S. newspapers that reported on the shootings of two Virginia journalists. As you might expect, the headlines were totally devoid of any information that would inform readers of what really happened. In other words, they were manipulated to avoid printing the kind of information that would normally dominate headlines when it helps the left and hurts conservatives. As we reported [Thursday], both the Charleston shooting and the Roanoke shooting were done by racial bigots, one a white racist and one a black racist. Vester Flanagan, the Roanoke shooter, was also a gay rights extremist, by the way. To the American media, these facts mean the story is to be buried as quickly as possible and reported in the most vague manner possible.

Media Manipulation

In other words, they were manipulated to avoid printing the kind of information that would normally dominate headlines when it helps the left and hurts conservatives.

As we reported [Thursday], both the Charleston shooting and the Roanoke shooting were done by racial bigots, one a white racist and one a black racist.

Vester Flanagan, the Roanoke shooter, was also a gay rights extremist, by the way. To the American media, these facts mean the story is to be buried as quickly as possible and reported in the most vague manner possible.

The London Telegraph, however, reports that when Flanagan’s apartment was searched, police found a gay pride flag — the same flag that was projected in lights on the White House after the Supreme Court’s decision redefining marriage.

Does anybody think there will now be full-throated calls from every corner of America to ban that flag? Increasingly, it is a symbol of hatred — hatred against Christians and long-standing societal norms. But don’t hold your breath.

Bring It On!

[Thursday], former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made headlines for comparing pro-life conservatives to Islamic terrorists. “Now, extreme views about women — we expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t live in the modern world,” Clinton said.

Don’t miss the irony here, friends. The leftist culture in America uses every verbal summersault possible to avoid making any connection between Islam and Al Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, etc. But it has no problem connecting American conservatism to those groups.

Of course, the reality is that this administration has barely lifted a finger to combat the religious persecution committed by the Islamic movement that is raping women and selling them into the sex trade. That battle has been led by conservatives.

The Obama administration has gone into court suing American businesses that say the Muslim hijab, which many view as a symbol of submission, violates their dress code. It is conservatives who say Muslim practices that belittle women should not be imported into the U.S.

It is the left that says American women should get used to going into a ladies’ room and finding a man using the facilities because he feels like he is a woman. It is conservatives who say this is a violation of a woman’s right to privacy.

The left says it should be legal for people to abort babies because they are little unborn girls. It is conservatives who argue that sex-selection abortion is abhorrent and should not be permitted.

To the left, there is no more important right for women than the right to destroy innocent human life. Yet conservatives who champion the sanctity of life are somehow equivalent to the barbaric marauders of ISIS.

If the left really wants to have a debate about extreme views, bring it on!
