Washington Post Claims Massacre of Sri Lankan Christians 'Stoked Far-Right Anger In the West'

As if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton calling Sri Lankan Christian bombing victims “Easter worshippers” weren’t bad enough, just hours after nearly 300 people were killed and more than 500 others were wounded in an Islamic attack on several hotels and Christian churches on Easter Sunday, the Washington Post published an “analysis” Monday with possibly the worst take imaginable: 
 


“After Sri Lankan officials blamed a local Muslim militant group, National Thowheed Jamaath, for the attack on Monday, European far-right groups and activists began to describe the attacks in specifically religious terms,” the Post “reported,” adding, “Some far-right groups claimed hypocrisy and double standards, arguing that attacks on Christians failed to receive the same response as attacks on Muslims.”

This shamelessly ill-timed and tone-deaf piece of journalistic trash went on to label just about anyone who pointed out the political double-standard for religious violence as “far-right,” including anyone online “criticizing Obama and Clinton for using the phrase ‘Easter worshipers’ rather than Christians.”

The authors went on to downplay hundreds of recent acts of vandalism against Christian churches in Europe as largely “minor,” adding that, “Although Christian minorities are targeted around the world, analysts say that the vast majority of terrorism victims globally are Muslims.” (Although a recent Pew Research Center analysis determined Christians, not Muslims, are the single most persecuted religious group in the world.)

If the liberal media were still wondering why Christians are so quick to point out the disparity between how they treat violence against Muslims and attacks against Christians, this right here?

THIS WOULD BE WHY.
