Left-wing progressives and their allies in the “mainstream” media have done more to enable terrorism than anyone else, as evidenced by a series of recent statements and events following the first attack against Americans since 9/11.
As noted by Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, following the attack against bicyclists in lower Manhattan by a “lone-wolf” radicalized and inspired by ISIS, the excuses made by the media and Alt-Left politicians for radical Islamists is outrageous.
“I …wonder at what point the deranged left-wing media will stop denying the existence of radical ISIS terrorism in America,” he wrote.
“The answer to that, of course, is more sinister than you might imagine: The left-wing media refuses to acknowledge the existence of radical ISIS terrorism for the simple reason that ISIS terrorism and left-wing media ideology are practically identical,” he added.
— At some point during the attack, the terrorist suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar,” which is common among radical Islamic terrorists. CNN host Jake Tapper began his initial reporting on his show “The Lead,” which began minutes after the first reports of the attack on Tuesday, by claiming people chant “Allahu Akbar” in “beautiful” circumstances.
“The Arabic chant Allahu Akbar, God is great — sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances and too often we hear of it being said in moments like this,” Tapper said.
Talk about tone deaf.
— As details about the attack became known, CNN’s correspondents were more concerned about being politically correct than accurate. One correspondent on the scene admitted that he had the police description of the suspect, but he refused to relay it to the audience because the terrorist looked Middle Eastern — Muslim — in appearance.
— Most of the legacy media outlets including The New York Times, USA Today, and the Washington Post would not print that the terrorist who killed worshippers at a mosque in Quebec in January shouted “Allahu Akbar” during their attacks. As The Gateway Pundit noted:
Going through multiple websites at approximately midnight EST we quickly discovered that most of the mainstream media didn’t mention that the shooter in Quebec yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’. It apparently doesn’t help the narrative that they are trying to push especially given the timing of Trump’s ban on visitors from countries that have strong ties to terrorism.
[President Donald J. Trump had just issued his first travel ban on people from six terrorism-infested countries shortly after taking office.]
— By comparison, whenever there is mass murder by white men, the mainstream media has no issues with pointing out their ethnicity and that the world would be a better place without white men toting guns.
A shining example of this is “comedy” writer Megan Amram. As Fox News reported, she tweeted in response to a TMZ story claiming that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock did not fit the typical mass shooter profile, “White man? Sure does.” (Related: JOURNO-TERRORISM: New York Times now openly sponsoring a public depiction of the assassination of President Trump.)

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter wrote in her syndicated weekly column in early October that the media had discovered Paddock’s motive: “He’s white!”
“If the media are going to keep wailing about how vital a free press is, could they start reporting stuff?” she began, adding a series of questions that no one in the press seemed willing to ask. But there were plenty of “smirky, celebratory headlines” from media outlets:
“America’s White Man Problem”
“How America has Silently Accepted the Rage of White Men”
“The White Privilege of the ‘Lone Wolf’ Shooter”
— Interwoven through those kinds of stories is a substantial anti-Americanism that the establishment media regularly features, especially when it comes to enabling Muslim terrorism.
“As the West experiences a rise in the sort of terror attacks that are endemic to the Islamic world—church attacks, sex-slavery and beheadings—it is only natural that the same mainstream media that habitually conceals such atrocities ‘over there,’ especially against Christians and other minorities under Islam, would also conceal the reality of jihadi aspirations ‘over here,’” Frontpage Magazine reported in 2014.
