No sooner had I penned an article on the London terror attack, and no sooner had I penned an article on “useful idiots” in the West who are aiding and abetting Islamic jihad, when the mainstream media came along doing the very thing I said they would. I watched our network television evening news broadcasts doing what can only be described as Islamic propaganda.
In my earlier pieces I said that the lamestream media would bend over backwards to whitewash this whole thing, to play down the obvious motivation for all this, and to cast Muslims – yes Muslims, as the real victims here. I knew that the “I” word and the “M” word would be mostly absent. And sure enough this is exactly what transpired.
I managed to watch most of the major channels and their coverage of the event. First of all, it was often buried way down in the news broadcasts, as if it were hardly of any importance really. And when it was covered, it was a brief, matter-of-fact affair – just another murder in London.
One would be hard pressed to know it had anything to do with Islam at all. Most would not even mention this aspect. But perhaps predictably, the worst offender of all was “our” ABC. You know the one – the network which is subsidised solely by our tax dollars, and serves little worthwhile purpose for its existence, at least when it comes to accuracy and balance in news coverage.
On both its 7pm news and its 7:30 Report the way they handled this was just despicable. While a few of the other networks had the courage to play some of the video that was shot of the Muslim with the meat cleaver in his hand and blood on his hands, the ABC did a very careful job of censorship here.
That is, while one or two other networks actually played the bit where he said he was doing all this for the sake of Islam, the ABC cut out all references to Allah and so on. One of their reports actually started with his words about ‘sorry that women had to see this’. Ah, wasn’t that sweet of the killer – and so nice of the ABC to run that bit only.
Throughout the attack they were shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”). They then demanded that the horrified onlookers film them as they ranted over his mangled body. One woman bravely did, and it is her video clip that the networks used – but some more selectively than others.
The guys with the blood and the knives said in part, “We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reasons we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day.” This key portion was not shown by the ABC.
Instead on the 7:30 Report we had the dhimmies at the ABC actually say this in their segment: “A man was hacked to death by two men who appear to be Muslim militants”. Appear to be?! Appear to be?! What more do you want for heaven’s sake?
Muslims chanting Islamic phrases and speaking directly about Allah, and the ABC wonders what the motivation was. Indeed, they even said that in the report as well! You still don’t know? You really have no idea of what was motivating the pair?
And then of course the rest of the report was a case of the ABC wringing its hands, worried about the poor Muslims who might be thought a bit less of after this attack. They highlighted “far-right” groups protesting all this. They had the mandatory Muslim apologist appearing, telling us how worried he was about a climate of fear and so on.
Well maybe there is a good reason for a climate of fear. After all, how many dead Britons must there be before you understand that not everyone is exactly thrilled with jihad on their own soil. And of course we still await the mass marches by “moderate” Muslims protesting these killings. Strange, but we never seem to see such protests. There is always just mind-numbing silence.
But the ABC did not highlight any of these inconvenient truths. It just wanted to portray Muslims as the victims here. It is clearly time to put the ABC out of its misery. With pro-Islamic reporting like that, it is certainly time for them to go.
Much of the MSM has long ago decided that whenever Islam and the West collide, they will do all they can to side with the Muslims. They have become the useful idiots which Lenin spoke about regarding communism. The West could withstand Islam and jihad if it believed in itself, had leaders who did too, and had a media which was not pushing the Islamic line.
But none of this seems to be the case, so the West is handily destroying itself from within. And the Muslim activists are sitting back laughing as it all unfolds.
