There is a strange disconnect in the amount of rage that the media can whip up against Trump compared to actual murderous Jihadis.
What do we get every time there is a Jihadist attack, whether here or abroad?
We get Stockholm Syndrome.
They will look for a way — any way — to blame something OTHER than religious zealotry for their actions.
It might be ‘workplace violence’. Or mental instability. Or anger against American / Western Geo-Politics. Some news reports are careful to exclude the race/religion/nationality of the attacker. Even if he was previously known to authorities and has shown sympathy to Islamists.
And you can expect a nifty hashtag, something like #NotAllMuslims.
And they get upset if you point out issues like these:
It doesn’t matter if the body count is zero, eight, or three thousand. The Left is more concerned about how the rest of us will treat the innocent Muslims than it is about how innocent Americans (which could even include Muslims who were in the wrong place at the wrong time) were deliberately targeted and murdered.
After all, Jake Tapper even reported that the attacker yelled ‘God is Great!’. No, it was Allahu Ackbar… which is better translated ‘God is greater’.
No. The media has got much better places to spend their rage. Like on President Trump.
Remember that study — Harvard, no less — that showed just how antagonistic the media has been to President Trump?
What are their reasons? Their reasons are all derivative and borrowed from talking points, but they come down to a few things.
They claim he’s against women’s rights and LBGT rights. Or they paint him as a white supremacist. (Really??)
They say he is undercutting democracy. They say he is corrupt. And he will (in some undefined way) restrict the rights of other people.
But these same people will line up to denounce Israel in their support of Palestinians.
Have they even asked whether they should stand with an Hamas, which has in its founding documents:
The charter goes further in detailing how Jihad against the Jews is a duty. “The day that enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In face of the Jews’ usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised. To do this requires the diffusion of Islamic consciousness among the masses, both on the regional, Arab and Islamic levels. It is necessary to instill the spirit of Jihad in the heart of the nation so that they would confront the enemies and join the ranks of the fighters.”[—
The same people who march with their silly pink knit caps don’t seem to have anything to say about Female Genital Mutilation… even when it shows up in the US of A.
In fact, they don’t mind having LEADERS of their P—Y hat march be outspoken proponents of Sharia law.
For example, One Leftist site wrote this embarrassingly bad headline: “When You Come for Rasmea Odeh, You Come For All of Us”
Perhaps the conservative establishment’s onslaught against Odeh is to be expected. After all, they have righteously adopted a white nationalist platform. But the alignment of self-described liberal feminists with the right on this issue is particularly disturbing.
Their minds are clearly made up, right? Conservatives are criminal scumbags, and Palestinian darlings of the leftist cause are sweetness and light.
Except that their story leaves this out:
Convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Yousef Odeh, an organizer of a Day Without a Woman, has agreed to leave the country in exchange for no jail time for failing to disclose the conviction on her U.S. visa application.
…The 69-year-old Palestinian activist was convicted in the 1969 supermarket bombing in Israel that killed two Hebrew University students.
Maybe Odeh wouldn’t have the same Leftist support if there were a ‘Jewish Lives Matter’ movement.
This pattern is repeated everywhere. They will be quick to say things like a ‘Domestic terrorist’, but slow to say ‘Radical Islam’. They throw wide the doors to Islamic migrants — without care or consideration whether they are willing to abide by our laws or share our respect for women and minorities.
But if you bring up the sudden spike in social ills in Europe that mysteriously coincided with the mass migration? You are a BAD PERSON. You hater. You probably voted for Trump!
Here is a statement from an anti-Islamophobia conference where a ‘moderate’ Muslim praised the wisdom of Islam’s practise of cutting theives’ hands off.
At 'Islamophobia' event in Florida, a Muslim scholar says chopping off hands for stealing is good. Audience shocked. https://t.co/AmcIEbDTzm

In America? Suggesting the virute of chopping off hands? No problem.
But Trump? He’s a ‘monster that MUST be stopped’ at any cost.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
