Jihad or Criminality?

Reader comment on item: Jihad or Criminality?

Call this article "Jihad Criminality." Regarding Ammar Harris, the Las Vegas NV shooter. Southern CA media did not refer to him by his muslim first name. He was presented by his normal sounding American nickname.

In radio & tv newsrooms across USA, there's no longer any such thing as "illegal aliens," nor "islamists," etc. Also, criminals wearing "hoodies" are now described as "shirts." Although there are "hate crimes" in USA against minorities, media refuses to label honor killings. Even when the local DA makes an arrest, no cultural reference is made. Imagine though, the coverage given if a "recognized" hate group like the KKK were involved...

The real "good book" otherwise known as the Bible says that in End Times people will call good things bad, and bad things good. Our liberalized media has sterilized every human behavior except anything involving guns. If the media is a barometer of bias, then suffice to say stormy days are ahead..
