View Full Version : Alabama church fires
02-09-2006, 04:58 AM
I'm watching (observing) the corporate media's coverage of the spate of church burnings in Alabama, and not once is there any mention of anti-Christianism or a rise in anti-Christian attitudes and policies as being responsible, only that a couple of "white males" (the system's all-purpose bogeymen) were seen speeding away from one of the fires.
Now what would the coverage have been like if it had been nine synagogues burned in Alabama or some other state -- or even a single synagogue? The coverage would have been completely different, focusing almost entirely on anti-Semitism as the cause. Abe Foxman and leaders of other Jewish organizations would have been constantly quoted, andbackground footage of amontage ofguilty-until-proven-innocent culprits -- from skinheads to Klansmen -- would have been generously mixed in.
The media is obsessed with "anti-Semitism," whatever that actually is, and even with anti-Islamic attitudes, but "anti-Christianism" doesn't exist in their version of America.

a few years before the main SPLC-approved burned churches ruckus, I read in America's Promise Newsletter (the main Christian Identity one) that there had been a series of burnings of rural white people's churches in Florida. Ho-hum, just another day in the real holocaust, the one against US.
I use the word "holocaust" for deliberate irony here, since it properly means something being totally consumed by flames. Dictionary.com gets this part right in the derivation
[Middle English, burnt offering, from Old French<TT> holocauste</TT>, from Latin<TT> holocaustum</TT>, from Greek<TT> holokauston</TT>, from neuter of<TT> holokaustos</TT>, burnt whole :<TT> holo-</TT>, holo- +<TT> kaustos</TT>, burnt (from<TT> kaiein</TT>, to burn).]
......................... but goes totally coo-coo on the definition itself, half blowing a gasket to help the Jews get a further monopoly on the word.

It hasn't surprised me at all that there has been the automatic disclaimer in each article about it not being about race, since the churches were white and black. It also hasn't surprised me that the anti-Christian aspect hasn't come up as well.There isa well orchestrated effort on the part of most liberals and some atheists to extinguish Christianity from the US, or at least render it uninfluential. The fact that it is happening in the South should raise the alarms of all people concerned with religion freedom, as it is The Bible Belt. It shows a definite hatred of Christianity that these things are being done where they are. Itshould bea clear message to Christians to wake up and get busy before its too late.

Say, Don, does Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby read your material? His 1/15 column which you've linked today is almost a knock-off of your post at top of this page from a week ago!
The Flames of Hate in Alabama http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/arti (http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2006/02/15/the_flames_of_hate_in_alabama/) cles/2006/02/15/the_flames_of_hate_in_alabama/
It endsthus, squelching years of fatuous misunderstanding of this noisy non-issue by the American sheeple:
In 1996, a spate of fires in the South was wildly and falsely trumpeted in the media as an eruption of racism. ''We are facing an epidemic of terror," said Deval Patrick, the Clinton administration's assistant attorney general for civil rights. But as it turned out, there was no racist conspiracy. More than a third of the arsonists arrested were black, and more than half the churches burned were white (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5200226). So perhaps it is progress of a sort that, this time around, the media are keeping in check the urge to cry ''Racism!"...............

I don't think too many neo-cons are interested in my words of wisdom, though at least Jacoby shows thata neo-con is capable of occasionally writing a good column. (Notice that Jacoby declined to mention a hypothetical involving the burning of places of worship of his own racial religion and what the reaction would likely be.)
