“I have seen so many comments from liberals in denial regarding the ISIS terrorist attack in California, so this post is going to be my very best attempt at untangling this yarn ball of lies and bullsh*t as best I can.
First, the majority of them have immediately brought up Robert Dear, the guy who shot three people in Planned Parenthood, to make a point that Christian terrorists are just as bad and Muslim terrorists are unfairly scrutinized. When’s the last time you heard of a terrorist attack targeting abortion clinics? I looked it up. Since 1993, there have been 7 fatal attacks on abortion clinics or abortion doctors, resulting in 11 fatalities. ELEVEN. Just to clarify, that’s less in 25 years than Syed Farook and Tashfeed Malik (the San Benardino shooters) killed in the span of 5 minutes.
Second, bringing up other white, male mass shooters in the United States to somehow prove this is just as big a problem as Islamic terrorism and ISIS. Why white males? Why not mention the Navy Yard shooter or the Virginia Tech shooter? As far as I’m aware, there is no all encompassing ideology driving white males to go on rampage killings. There’s no single motive or common denominator, unlike Islamic terrorism, where there is ALWAYS a single motive and common denominator: Islam. I looked up the 30 worst mass shootings in US history from 1949 to the present. 10 of them were carried out by non white males. And those 30 rampage shootings resulted in a total of 382 deaths. That’s less than 1/4 of fatalities caused by Islamic terrorist attacks in November 2015 ALONE.
Thirdly, many are saying there have been 355 mass shootings in America this year, with only 2% by Muslims being responsible. Except this statistic from “Mass Shooting Tracker” has been proven FALSE. 42% of these so called “shootings” resulted in zero deaths and 29% resulted in 1 death. That’s 71% of these supposed “mass shootings” that involved 1 death or less. So if you’re parroting this statistic, you’re essentially lumping a random shooting where one person was injured in the leg with a pre-planned, ISIS terror attack on US soil. Congratulations.
Fourthly, bringing up PAST “Christian atrocities” to somehow condone or justify the Islamic terror threat we face TODAY. I tallied up the body count. ISIS alone has killed over 6,000 innocent people just this year. Adding up the predictable “Christian atrocities” I’ve heard (even if they were NOT motivated by Christianity at all): Timothy McVeigh, the KKK, the IRA, and the Spanish Inquisition combined doesn’t even come close to the ISIS body count just this year. And that’s just ISIS. That doesn’t include Boko Haram, Abu Sayyef, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, Al Shabaab, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the other Islamic terrorist organizations that make up the overwhelming majority of named Islamic terror groups worldwide.
Seriously liberals, I will play this “Christians vs. Muslims” numbers game all day long. You want to point out Hitler as Christian, even though he personally hated Christianity and his motives were far from religious? I’ll still give you that and raise you one Islamic massacre of millions of Hindus on the Indian subcontinent. You want to bring up the Crusades, a defensive war by Europe that was meant to stop Islamic military expansion? I’ll still give you that and raise you one Armenian genocide by the Ottoman Turks. You want to bring up the Inquisition or the Salem Witch Trials or every abortion clinic bombing in the history of the world? I’ll give you all of those and raise you one massacre of 900 Banu Qurayza Jews killed by Mohammad and his followers.
So liberals, keep harping on about Islamophobia, and “Christian atrocities” that pale in comparison to the atrocities we face TODAY. It’s not going to stop the Islamic jihadists from wanting to kill you, and it’s not going to stop more ISIS attacks from happening, as much as you desperately want to point the finger at your own fellow Americans instead!” — Benjamin Rush
