While the mainstream media was protesting religious freedom laws, they neglected to make a big deal out of a terrorist attack by Islamic terrorists against Christian students in Kenya.
Let’s read about it in the radically leftist New York Times, of all places.
Elosy Karimi curled up in a crawl space, immobilized by fear.
Her classmates were flooding out of the dorms, in boxer shorts and thin nightgowns. Gunfire was ringing all around her. People were screaming. It was predawn and pitch black.
“If you want to survive, come out!” the militants yelled. “If you want to die, stay inside!”
In the terrifying confusion, Ms. Karimi, 23, decided to risk it inside, she said, and stayed hidden in the ceiling above her bunk bed for the next 28 and a half hours.
“I knew those guys were lying,” she said at the hospital, having just arrived to be checked after the ordeal.
New details emerged on Friday about how a handful of fighters from the Shabab militant group, with just a few light weapons, managed to kill nearly 150 students in Kenya’s worst terrorist attack since the 1998 bombing of the United States Embassy in Nairobi.
Survivors said many students had fallen for the militants’ trick, voluntarily leaving their dorm rooms and obeying commands to lie down in neat rows, only to be shot in the back of the head.
One of the militants appeared to be a trained sniper, some witnesses said, picking off several Kenyan soldiers and critically hampering the rescue effort, giving the gunmen hours more to keep killing.
The militants seemed especially cruel and gleeful, ordering some students to call their parents on their cellphones and tell them that the attack was payback for Kenya’s military intervention in Somalia.
Students who hid during the attack said they had heard their classmates whimpering as the militants taunted them. Then a single gunshot. Then silence.
“They were shooting people as they came out; they were making others lie down,” said a doctor who was not authorized to speak publicly. “They had so many people lying in one place, it was easy killing.”
I am contrasting this story with the photos of the people marching around in Indiana for their right not to be refused gay marriage services from Christians. They were not marching for the Christian students who were murdered by terrorists in Kenya. Oh no – they have much higher priorities. The journalists who spent hours and hours lying about the religious liberty law also had different priorities. What a strange world where people think that it is more important to compel others to celebrate their behavior instead of condemning something that is truly evil. I guess it’s too much to ask that entitle secular leftist bullies would care about the basic human rights of others. They want a happy life for themselves, but there is no morality underlying any of their rhetoric.
As an aside, I think this story shows the important of America having a strong military and having the will to use it. It’s one thing to read about stories like this, but if you go to the polls and vote for Democrats to cut our defense budget and neuter the army with politically correct policies, then there is nothing we can do when things like this happen. The bad guys in this story only understand one thing, and that’s men with guns standing between them and their intended victims. No shrieking anti-war activist in pink could have helped the victims, but our military could have.
