Michael Brown: When a white supremacist murdered black parishioners in Charleston, SC, there was national outrage leading to the banning of the Confederate Flag and a fresh discussion of race relations in America. But when Christians are targeted and murdered on a campus in Oregon, much of the nation yawns.

Christians are Politically Incorrect. Period. End of Story.

There are unconfirmed reports that several news outlets are trying to make the Oregon shooter more “white” than mix-race, also for The Agenda.

This pesky little fact that Harper-Mercer killed Christians on purpose gets in the way of trying to leverage a good crisis for progressive political gain. That is why we heard more about gun control in the hours after the shooting, than we did about this very integral part of the tragedy.– James Woods

According to eyewitness reports, the Oregon shooter asked students what their religion was, and if they said “Christian” he shot them in the head. Yet the secular media, for the most part, is focusing more on gun laws than on the shooter’s alleged anti-Christian motivation. Why?

faith

Can you imagine what would have happened if the shooter went into a creative arts class, asked the students to declare their sexual orientation, and if they said “gay” shot them in the head?

Oh. god (no pun intended) the Mainstream Media would be on it 24/7 for weeks bashing into sub-atomic particles!

There would be a massive media frenzy, with instant accusations of national homophobia and pulling of quotes from Christian leaders whose failure to support same-sex “marriage” would somehow make them complicit in the deaths.

The Left wouldn’t stop at “The Dukes of Hazzard” in that case.

The same thing would have happened if the killer had targeted Muslims, with immediate charges of “Islamophobia” shouted from coast to coast.

Not so, though, when it’s Christians who are killed for their faith.

Is it any surprise, then, that hours after the eyewitness accounts had been released and well after conservative news outlets were reporting the alleged targeting of Christians, liberal news outlets had not said a word about the alleged anti-Christian connection?

James Woods: We know the shooter’s name, his age, what he looks like, and now even who his specific targets were, who all had one thing in common. Yet, coverage of this front page news story is not speaking to the most important detail of that day, completely omitting it from their reports. When Chris Harper-Mercer walked onto that campus, he asked each person he shot if they were Christian. If they answered affirmatively, standing for their faith, he shot them in the head.

This wasn’t a random massacre, it was a religious attack. But we’re not hearing about that, unlike the focus of the coverage of white boy Dylann Roof, who opened fired on a room filled with black church-goers, and the country was collectively outraged about the racial attack.

And led to absolute hysterics.

Politically outspoken Hollywood right-winger James Woods predicted this media reaction. When news broke about the shooting, he tweeted, “If it is determined that the Oregon shooter targeted Christians specifically, that’s the last we will hear of it on MSM.” Sure enough, as soon as the very important Christian piece of this story was released, proving the motive for killing, the New York Times completely left this fact out, and it could not be a coincidence.

The Agenda is The Agenda and Political Correctness must be adhered to at all costs, especially the truth.

It could well be that the Oregon shooter suffered from a mental illness, which suggests that we can’t read too much into his actions. But why, then, did we read so much into the Charleston shooter’s actions, since he reportedly suffered from a mental illness as well?

The Oregon attack is also one isolated incident, which suggest that we can’t extrapolate too much from it in terms of national sentiments towards Christianity. But why, then, did we extrapolate so much from the Charleston shooting in terms of race issues?

When it comes to the Oregon massacre, we still don’t know all the facts and, at this point, only God knows the motivation of the murderer. But we do know there is a growing national climate of extreme hostility towards Christianity, and from professional news media to popular social media, it is open season on committed followers of Jesus.

It’s one thing to have a civil debate on the meaning of marriage or to disagree on what the Bible teaches on sexuality or to have different perspectives on the best way to address transgender issues.

It’s another thing entirely when your failure to support the redefinition of marriage or your adherence to biblical sexuality or your opposition to gender-neutral bathrooms gets you branded as a sick, vile, bigot worthy of death.

Today, it is not just the Bill Mahers and Dan Savages of the world who are trashing Christianity and vilifying conservative believers. It is not just radical liberal professors on college campuses who continue their aggressive attack on people of faith.

Today, Bible-bashing and Christian-mocking is a favorite pastime on social media, replete with unprintable insults, ugly invective, and death wishes galore. Simply stated, it has become part of the larger pop culture.

True.

Within a 72-hour period last week, at least 6 different people posted death wishes on my Facebook page, some getting into graphic detail (including the person who didn’t know how to spell pancreatic), while scores of others posted comments that were so ugly they were immediately blocked.

At about the same time, a reviewer of my newest book (which, by the way, has an entire chapter calling on Christians to take the highest moral ground and to overcome evil with good and hatred with love) claimed that, “This book is in pure and perfect alignment with the views of white supremacy groups and the KKK.”

Mind you, these are the “diversity” police who are preach “tolerance”. 🙂

Also about this time, someone posted on my Facebook page, “Oh goody another neo Nazi crazy fanatical zealot posting their b****** on my wall.” (Actually, we post things on our page; we didn’t post anything on that person’s wall.)

Of course, this is nothing new for me or other conservative believers, since ridiculous rhetoric like this has been coming our way for years.

The problem is that more and more people actually believe this baseless drivel, and instead of comments like this coming from the most extreme anti-Christian groups and individuals, similar remarks are becoming more and more mainstream.

Well, if you tell a lie often enough, it can become the truth. The Left’s favorite tactic.

In short, we are not just dealing with the incremental criminalization of Christianity in America (to use the words of Janet Folger and Mike Huckabee) but with the demonization of Christianity (and Christians) in America. And while this is hardly the first time in the last 2,000 years that believers have been demonized – far from it – it may well be the first time in American history that hostility to the faith is so vile, mean-spirited and widespread.

At this point, we have no idea whether this hostile climate contributed to the Oregon massacre. But it is certain that words have consequences, that hateful people do hateful things, and that when you declare an ideological war against Christianity, the results could be deadly – literally.

This calls for renewed faith, renewed courage, and renewed boldness.

As we unashamedly confess Jesus’ name here on earth, He will unashamedly confess our names in heaven.

Never Let a Crisis Go To Waste

The immortal words of the former Obama Chief of Staff rang in my ears as yet another school shooting happened in Oregon and immediately, almost before the bodies hit the ground Obama was out there pushing The Agenda, Gun Control.

Don’t make it about politics, the Left says, then makes it about THEIR politics almost before the bodies are cold.

Sickening.

Some people jumped on “muslims” early on. So the Leftist media jumped on THEM.

We are advised to not judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of lunatics.

“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian. If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.” it was said to be.

Gee, no hard “war on Christians” there. The Left and their Muslim brothers are safe. 🙂

The more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight“.– The shooter

The Left WILL make him famous, for the sake of their Agenda.

liberal gun violence

Instead of focusing on what your agenda can gain, how about talking a long hard look at yourselves and the shooter first!

Naw, THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!!!  It’s the only thing that matters.

Less than six hours after the mass shooting today in Roseburg, Ore., President Obama called a press conference to demand new gun laws, a move he predicted would spur critics to accuse him of politicizing the issue. If they don’t accuse him of that, they might accuse him of making the tragedy about himself. 

During today’s 12-minute address, President Obama referred to himself 28 times. (For those counting at home, that’s almost three times per minute.)

Note that in arriving at this calculation, we included mentions of “we” when he was clearly including himself as part of the plural pronoun; the many uses of “we” in referring to America at large were not included. (Grabien)

So, as usual, it’s all about him and his agenda. He wants to own the limelight, how ironic. 🙂

Harper-Mercer wrote in a post this August about how much he admired Vester Flanagan, the Roanoke shooter who killed a cameraman and newscaster at the television station where he had been employed after getting fired. 

On that same profile it also showed that just three days ago Harper-Mercer uploaded This World Surviving Sandy Hook BBC Documentary 2015 for people to watch on the file sharing site.

The Shooter posted: ‘On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are. A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone,’ wrote Harper-Mercer of Flanagan. 

‘His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.’

He closed by saying; ‘Also, if anyone gets the chance, go on youtube and see the footage of him shooting those people. It’s a short video but good nonetheless. Will post more later.’ 

So he’s learned his lessons will, the dead Padawan did.

On a Dating site he listed himself as a mixed race Republican. Well, the Leftist will have slobbering Partisan chops fun with this one.

It will be all about the politics, destroying your ‘enemy’ (Republicans) and the Agenda.

The message that is screaming at you will be missed because it doesn’t serve The Agenda.

Gallery: On the killer's MySpace page he has several posts and pictures where he appears to praise the IRA and their terrorist activites

‘And they would stand up and he said, “Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,”‘ said Stacy  (one of the survivors).

‘And then he shot and killed them.’

Umpqua College was a gun free zone.
No guns allowed…

Unless you’re a crazed lunatic, that is…

Chris Harper-Mercer – a 26-year-old who idolized serial killers and who isn’t even remotely interesting to the Left, except for what he can do for their Agenda.

I often think the only reason Leftists are for Gun Control is that when they come to you with one of their Agenda items to destroy your life (The metaphorical “gun to your head”) and you want to resist so THEY want to be the only ones with any guns, metaphorical or otherwise. That way, you have no choice but to do what they want, when they want, because they want.

A Military style junta dictatorship. That suits the Left’s ambitions for control, does it not?

The Left should focus on the people first. It is after, the sensitive and compassionate thing to do.

Nope, Agenda first!

Let’s ban the guns!  Not treat the people.

It’s the Gun’s fault!

If we prevent you from having a gun this won’t happen, the Left’s Agenda thinks.

Guns don’t kill people, people with guns kill people. Treat the cause not the symptom, Doctor Leftist.

Sorry, not covered by the Agenda Medical plan.

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!!

Gun control is “is something we should politicize.”–Obama.

“This is a political choice that we make. To allow this to happen every few months in America. We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”–Obama

It’s YOUR Fault!

Did this happen “every few months until a few years ago, my dear?

Sorry, The Agenda is The Agenda!

Obama admitted that this issue would require a change of politics, and that Americans who think gun violence is an epidemic should be thinking how to change the politics in Washington on this issue.

Aka elect Liberals, they do such a fine job of it.

Chicago, run by Raul “dead fish” Emmanuel who made the quote in the title of this blog infamous runs Chicago, and it has had even MORE gun violence since he and his liberal gun control buddies took over.

Guns don’t kill people. People with guns kill people.

Just like most blacks are killed by blacks, not whites, or white cops.

BUT

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA.

The truth doesn’t matter.
