Nigerian Muslims slaughter 120 Christians in three weeks, but the MSM refuses to cover it…

On Saturday it was reported that Fulani Muslims in Nigeria had massacred horrific numbers of Christians in just three weeks. And yet the only thing the media seems to care about is Muslims getting gunned down in mosques in New Zealand.

First, here’s the latest report on these Christian massacres in Nigeria via Breitbart:

The recent death toll of Christians in Nigeria has reached 120 with this week’s slaughter of more than 50 by Fulani Muslim militants in the Kaduna state of Nigeria, the Christian Post reported.

The Fulani jihadists, who have become a greater threat to Nigerian Christians than the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, stormed the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area last Monday, destroying 143 homes, killing 52 people, and wounding dozens more.

The assailants reportedly split into three groups, the first of which fired upon the people, the second set fire to buildings, and the third chased down people fleeing from the scene. Victims of the assault included women and children.

Monday’s incident followed an attack the day before in the Ungwan Barde village in Kajuru, where 17 Christians were killed and dozens of homes were burned.

In the first week of March, Muslim extremists massacred more than 30 Christians in Karamar village, setting fire to several houses and a church. The terrorists reportedly shot at families trying to escape the fire, killing 32.

The spate of recent attacks against communities has taken place within the predominantly Christian Adara chiefdom of southern Kaduna.



We’ve been reporting on these Fulani Muslim massacres for years. Last July Nigeria was said to be the deadliest place in the world, with 238 people slaughtered in one Christian village.

You’d think the recent spate of Christian killings would get at least some coverage in the media, but they haven’t, according to Breitbart:

The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.

The news shows from the three major television channels did not mention the story, and nor did CNN or MSNBC.

The massacre of Christians in Nigeria is certainly not new, as we’ve been covering them for almost a decade now. But even so, you’d think that 52 Christians being slaughtered last week would have moved the needle in the media.

The last time I remember Nigeria getting a lot of attention in the media was when Boko Haram kidnapped over 250 school girls in 2014. Remember Michelle Obama’s infamous #hastag activism?

The horrific Muslim killings in New Zealand most certainly deserved international attention. But Christians being slaughtered by Muslims in Nigeria deserve at least some attention as well, because what’s happening there has made Nigeria one of the worst places for Christians in the world.

Most politicians on both sides of the fence placate to Islam as a religion of peace for instance George W Bush after 911, Democrats always pander to the lowest common denominator in society for their support like planned parenthood gay rights activists illegal immigrants and Muslim followers. Republican and Democrat politicians do not represent law abiding citizens but their special interest groups and lobbyists, they pander to voters but their allegiance is to big donors with deep pockets, 12 Republicans sided with Democrats to shoot down border security is no coincidence, Republican want cheap labor Democrats want their votes and the law abiding citizen gets the shaft. Islam is not a religion of peace according to the Koran which clearly states that non Muslims are heretics worthy of death that includes liberals as well as conservatives, anyone who doesn’t bow to Islam is dispatched by the sword as we have… Read more »

Muslims may vote Democrat, but their numbers are very small.

The ugly truth: Muslims killing non-Muslims is a dog-bites-man story. Technically “news,” but nothing new.

Muslims being killed by a non-Muslim is a man-bites-dog story. Shocking because it’s so unusual.

And the bonus is that it’s a hook for a good-ole-Trump-bashing.

It’s not a bit surprising that the media would much rather cover one kind of story. But to only cover the unusual while ignoring the more “routine” disasters is the opposite of informing the public.

I am not a Christian and I care. And I believe most Americans of every (and no) faith would also care, at least as much as they care about the NZ Muslims. The problem is, of course, they don’t know about it because of the Media blackout. It is truly one of the Media’s most despicable things among many.

I understand what you are saying, however, I don’t believe most Americans care. Take, for instance, the issue of third trimester and post birth abortions. Do you see Americans clamoring to stop it? Or to stop Planned Parenthood from selling baby parts? Or stop human trafficking? Nope – you don’t see it happening and that’s why it continues. With the world wide web there’s no way you can blame it on media blackout. In fact, I just watched a little video of protesters wanting America to stay out of Venezuela’s mess. These people supposedly know all about Venezuela’s problems. They are asked whether they would want Trump or Maduro as their president. And they all chose Maduro. It’s my opinion that because most people want to spend time on their own personal agendas that they won’t step out of their comfort zone for others. But then, that’s just my humble… Read more »

Thirty years ago I wasn’t a Christian but my husband and I wanted desperately to adopt. I got involved with a group trying to stop abortion. I got involved not because I cared about abortion but I thought maybe I would get further in our attempt to adopt. We had been with L.A. County for a couple years but it wasn’t working out for us. I was shocked to learn about abortion and tried to share the facts with my in-law family who, for the most part, were Christians. They did not want to hear about it. A few years, and a couple babies later, my mom-in-law did come around and she brought her husband with her. My sister and brother-in-law were into saving whales but not preborn human beings. And none of my family wanted to hear about it. I have had a good long 30 years to have… Read more »

I don’t post on social media, and family can be touchy. – I know, most of mine are libs, so we avoid political subjects. But I have warm relationships with some coworkers that I know are very lib (and they know I am conservative). While we mostly also avoid political discussions, I have occasionally brought up subjects like the NY infanticide vote. They were horrified, they hadn’t heard about it, and they definitely didn’t approve. Did it change their minds about how they would vote? No, but I figure I’m planting seeds. You never know what will grow with time.

Ps: 30 years ago my (now ex-) husband and I were waiting to adopt also. Our son turns 30 in 3 weeks. : )

I have learned through the years that young people, passionate they may be in their teens and twenties (in disappointing ways to their parents) often come around when “real life” catches up to them, especially if they have been given a solid foundation. Trust in that foundation, those are the real “seeds” and I am sure that one day they will bear fruit. Good luck!

And shortly before this, a Muslim did a Church bombing in the Philippines that killed more than 20 worshipers inside [On Jan 27th 2019 actually]. The media promptly covered it for about 2 minutes then dropped the story, there was no dwelling on it and making it the news story of the decade either. Go back a bit further from there and two European women were beheaded by ISIS members in Morocco, the media called their injuries “neck wounds” and downplayed the attack as not being about religion, until a video leaked showing the attackers chanting Allahu Akbar as they did the deed and had ISIS flags with them. There have been too many bombings on Coptic Christian Churches in Egypt to count during the last two years – again very little coverage, ISIS mass murdering Syrian Christians….Which really might end up being one of the biggest genocides in recent… Read more »

The media always downplays Islamic attacks too. It seems like every time a attack happens, that a group of people are bused to a area to hold up signs for the cameras saying that that was not “real islam” or something along those lines. The media cares less about the victims of the attack and more about defending Islam and Muslims. If they just reported the news and left their bias at the door we would all be better off for it.

Thousands and thousands of Christians have been slaughtered in Africa and the Middle East over the past few years and the media ignores it but when Muslims are slaughtered the media puts in on the front page. The media is looking to create a race/civil war in the USA….that is becoming more and more obvious. I guess wars bring ratings. Interesting how the media blows this up at the time when Democrats were being revealed as anti-semites after the Omar incident.

During the Obama administration when Andres Brevik slaughtered over 70 in Norway due to Norway’s migrant invasion, no one accused Obama and the US of being responsible. Oh and Norway like New Zealand have very tough gun control laws.

I believe that the “fake” news and “crap” news is bad but that the lack of news is worse. People cannot care about things they don’t know. And simply saying they should try to find out is silly because we know most won’t bother.

Plus, once they see that they have been hoodwinked, for decades, they see themselves for the suckers they have been and they would rather not deal with that. Human nature 101 – IMO.

We have friends who have relatives in Venezuela. When I tried talking to my mom about it, she just waived it away and said, they had money, they’ll be OK because they’re connected to the government. I was just “incredulized!” I know that’s not a real word, but I just couldn’t believe that she was so lack-luster about something so horrible.

Not sayin’ he was. Christians, as a matter of course, do not commit mass murder. New Zealanders, as a matter of course, do not commit mass murders either. But NZ is, nominally, a Christian nation. So a mass murder in NZ committed by an NZ citizen is, in and of itself, newsworthy. While Murder on ANY scale normally would be newsworthy, when it is committed by Islamists ANYWHERE on the planet, is not newsworthy because it is what they do. They have no regard for human life. Islamism is a cult of death. They say it themselves: “We love Death MORE than YOU love Life.” or words to that effect. They seek martyrdom as the way into their version of paradise, the one where Allah is a pimp who supplies them with virginal whores.

If it doesn’t fit the liberal narrative, it is ignored. It doesn’t happen if no one reports on it. It’s so disgusting because when I speak with my liberal family members, and they haven’t heard about it on their beloved alphabet networks, they don’t believe that it happened. I literally have to send them links and show them what is going on and then they reluctantly admit that what I have told them seems to be true. The media in this country is doing so much damage to our fellow uninformed citizens, it should be criminal. I also blame people who place blind trust in what they hear or see on the radio, TV or online. When you have a bias to only look at what you agree with, you will always fall short of the truth.

Of course this horror and other atrocities against Christians and other peaceful people was not reported. It doesn’t fit the delusional and fictitious narrative that the Left wants to portray in their quest for eternal socialist power. It may be 3.5 decades late but the warning behind the novel 1984 has been thoroughly ignored. Sadly, this will end just as horribly when the cobra of Islam that the Left has chosen to play with turns and bites them after they’ve destroyed all else. The Left thinks that they can ride the lightning without consequence but that lightning will incinerate them regardless of what they think.

Let’s get this straight, Muslims were attached in New Zealand and it is covered top to bottom with pictures, assumptions and the accusation that somehow it is Trump’s fault.

Muslims though who are intentionally slaughtering hundreds of people based solely on their religion and it is more silent than a tomb. And MSM wonders why they continue to not be trusted. The irony is that their desire to undermine our president would actually have legs if they would just cover news stories like this from time to time.

Even worse, the New Zealand incident was that of a lone individual or maybe another couple of people. To try to say something broadly about white people, white nationalists, or Trump is ridiculous – based on such a small number of bad actors.

Nigeria’s killing of Christians is part of a much larger political and religious movement. If anything, it should merit far greater coverage just because of the number of people who are okay with it. New Zealand won’t have anything else like this occur any time soon because it was an isolated incident. Nigeria’s killings will go on… and on… and on.
