Horrendous Story That MSM Won't Cover

I first read about the horrific murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian last night over at Hot Air. In the video at Hot Air, Michele Malkin covers not only the utterly heinous and evil depravity of the criminal murderers, but also addresses the very important question as to why this story has been basically ignored by the MSM.

[Please note: the details are truly night-marish. Be forewarned!]

Snopes.com has established the authenticity of the absolutely incomprehensible brutality involved in the attacks upon these two human beings. The essay there further relates as to why this particular story does not merit MSM coverage.

The reasons are similar to the cases involving two young boys (Jeffrey Curley and Jesse Dirkhising) who were brutally raped and murdered by homosexual men, as well as the story of Mary Stachowicz, who was killed by a homosexual man she worked with because she attempted to witness to him about what the Bible says regarding homosexual behavior as sin.

What do these five murders all have in common? They will never be labeled as "hate crimes" against the victims. Why? Well, Michele at Hot Air and Snopes.com covers it quite well and bluntly tells us the answer to that question.

This is just more proof that "hate crimes" legislation is a false dichotomy that should never be passed by Congress!!!

The proof that false claims already abound from the homosexual community is another reason why it's such a farse!!

I was originally puzzled as to why the Newsom and Christian murders weren't deemed newsworthy. Why was this terribly depraved double-murder ignored while the Duke rape case received such endless media coverage? Dare I say that when the murderous perpetrators are either homosexual or black, and the victims are children or white, it just doesn't fit as "newsworthy" in the minds of liberals who are the obviously dominating presence in the newsrooms across America ? What's more, in their loonie left daft opinion, there is no way that such horrible crimes listed above would merit being labeled as "hate crimes."

Why???

We seriously need to ask and answer that question!

Why are certain crimes worthy of being labeled "hate crimes" and others are not?

There must be something else behind this trend.

Anybody care to guess??

I'll tell you.

The Federal Hate Crimes Bill: Federalizing Criminal Law While Threatening Civil Liberties.

I know what you are thinking. Isn't the left considered the reigning champions for civil liberties? Yes! They are...usually, that is. Except when the liberty being discussed does not agree with their agenda!

But wait! There's more! The ultimate goal is not only to threaten religious freedom, in general, but to target and silence Christians and God's Word, the Bible in particular!!


That's why.

Update 5/18/07

This is certainly terrible news. I didn't want to be called a "race-baiter" or make claims about the murderers that I couldn't back up. However, today I read a comment by a blogger named "Hemrud" over at Flopping Aces. He wrote:

I would like to add just one item, at least one of the perps is a member of the Black Supremist group "Black Gangsta Disciples" which would lead one to think that yes indeed this was a racially motivated crime. Would any MSM reporter say a case involving Blacks tortured and killed by members of a White Supremacy group was not racially motivated? I think not. Further backing this is another report on a organisation, Black Poverty Speaks, that will be "Celebrating the Carjackers" believe it or not!

Also, over at Mark's Chester Street blog, one commentor made a great point and observation:

The Merry Widow said...
Mark-You look in the eyes and faces of the perps, there is no soul, the eyes are dead, and the faces show NOTHING!
This is truly an act of total evil.
And before anyone thinks I'm looking at skin, blow it! I'm looking at expressions and eyes, if the eyes are the window of the soul, nobody is home.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

And what of the families of Channon and Christopher? What Hell are they going through? With what they know their loved ones went through? What justice for them? Who will wipe their tears? Who will weep with them? Who will hold them? Who can erase the images?

When I visited Mark's blog, I couldn't even bring myself to look at the pics of the murderers. But after reading The Merry Widow's comment, I made the unpleasant effort to look at the eyes and faces of those murderers. She was 100% correct in her observation. Their eyes are dead. Their expressions are dead and hopeless. Their actions were nothing but plain evil.

God's Word describes such a state of being:

Jer 17:9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?

From the Snopes article, which you didn't seem to read:


"Some commentators (as cited in the example reproduced above) have made much of the fact that the bulk of the news reportage about the Newsom/Christian murders has been local (predominantly in Tennessee, where the crimes took place, and in neighboring Kentucky), while the case has received little or no national coverage by major news outlets — a phenomenon attributed to supposedly biased news media loath to report black-on-white crime. (Both Christian and Newsom were white; all five of the suspects arrested in connection with their killings are black.)

However, the notion that every major news outlet in the U.S. (all of them competitive, profit-making businesses) has conspired to ignore what would otherwise be a compelling national story is rather implausible. A more rational explanation might be found in the sober observation that murders — even decidedly horrific murders — are unfortunately too frequent an occurrence in the U.S. for all of them to garner national attention. The cases that do tend to attract prolonged, nationwide coverage are ones exhibiting a combination of factors (e.g., scandal, mystery, sexual elements, celebrity involvement, shockingly large numbers of deaths, victims who especially elicit sympathy) that make them particularly fascinating and compelling to the public at large, such as the still-unsolved murder of 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, the mysterious disappearance (and death) of pregnant Laci Peterson, the massacre of 32 students and faculty at Virginia Tech, and the celebrity trial to determine whether actress Lana Clarkson committed suicide or was killed by reclusive record producer Phil Spector.

And, of course, the fact that the victims were white and the (presumed) killer black didn't stop the O.J. Simpson murder trial from becoming the most media-covered event in the history of jurisprudence."

You need help, Christine

well said Christine!

Another important Biblical reminder, there are those that are and can be beyond repentance and regeneration! An uncomfortable revelation? yes. But God's word is clear. That's why Today should be on the door of every house of God and on the lips of all who proclaim the promise of Christ.

You live in a strange fear filled world Christine. I will pray for you.

Christinewjc said...

Ebsfwan,

Kinda depends on which "god" you plan to pray to.

From what I've read, you reject the One True God of the Bible and Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord.

Remember Jesus' admonition about that?

Anyway, pointing out that unrestrained man (as in this case) has a natural penchant for criminality and inhumanity as well as the MSM's bias does not mean that your opinion about me it correct.

Admittedly, I do live in a "different world" than you apparently do. Jesus said that he "is not of this world." Following Him has opened my eyes to the fact that this is very true.

My "fear" is not of man. Nope. My fear (meaning reverence) is for God.

This morning, while reading a book I came across the third stanza of "Amazing Grace." I think it sums up my thoughts quite well:

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years...

I may have doubts but that does not mean I reject God.
