I debated for several days about posting this, and finally decided that regardless of the consequences I would. A friend of mine posting a news article on Facebook from June 9th of this year about an attack on a village in Mali, that is a country in Africa on the south edge of the Sahara Desert. An armed group arrived on pickup trucks and motorcycles, surrounded the village, and then began firing. The village was then burned. The casualty report by the government was at least 93 dead, including the elderly, women, and children. It was apparently hard to determine exact numbers due to the village being burned. Animals were also killed, primarily donkeys and goats, probably from either being caught in the line of fire or from being in the huts as they were shot up. However, that does show that this was not a raid to acquire livestock. Those in the village were Christians. Given the fact that Muslims make up 94% of Mali's population, and there are also the Boko Haram and ISIS-affiliated groups in the area, the attackers were very likely Muslims.

Now, if this had been an attack on Muslims, the story would have made world headlines, and the media would have been pouring into Mali to publicize the attack. However, it is likely Muslims on Christians, so that is not news at all. Besides, if the main stream media publicized it, the Muslims might get upset, and upset Muslims get violent. They might even, GASP, shoot reporters that did not portray them as the victims. It would also get several members of the Democratic Party upset, as everyone knows that Muslims are always the victims. Actually, it would get the elitist, Anti-Semitic members of the Democratic Party upset too, as that also spoils their narrative. Besides, Christians are those ignorant deplorables who really need to be locked up or at the very least, listen to their irreligious betters with respect to such things.

How doubly sad, first that Christians are victimized throughout much of Africa and Asia for their religion, second that mainstream media definitely places a lower emphasis on stories of terrorism and violence when the victims are singled out as Chistians. 😫😥😡
