Media Silent As Christian Extremists Slaughter Muslims In Central Africa

Hundreds of civilians are seeking refuge inside a mosque in the Central African Republic (CAR)’s border town of Bangassou, Reuters reports.

What may be surprising to the American public is that these civilians are trying to escape ongoing attacks committed by Christian militias that killed at least 30 civilians over the weekend, according to U.N. officials and aid workers.

According to Reuters, the weekend attacks in Bangassou, located on the Congolese border, have involved hundreds of fighters with heavy weaponry. The fighting is aimed at the Muslim populations and signals that the conflict currently besieging the country is worsening.

“The situation is extremely deplorable and we are doing everything to rapidly retake control of Bangassou,” MINUSCA (the U.N. mission) chief Parfait Onanga-Anyanga told Reuters in an interview.

According to Onanga-Anyanga, many of the fighters are child soldiers who appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

The head of the Red Cross in CAR, Antoine Mbao-Bogo, said his staff has counted 115 bodies in Bangassou following the latest fighting.

While these developments may be unheard of in the eyes and ears of much of the American public, the truth is that this conflict has been raging for some time now. According to the Guardian, thousands of Muslims have been killed or displaced in the conflict. For example, the city of Bangui previously had approximately 130,000 Muslim residents; the number of Muslims is now likely less than 1,000.

According to Reuters, the U.N. base in Bangassou has also been targeted.

CAR has been besieged by this violence since 2013, when mostly Muslim Seleka fighters ousted then-President Francois Bozize. Amnesty International has referred to the developments in the country as “ethnic cleansing” since the fighting erupted.

As this conflict rages on, however, don’t expect the corporate media to pay too much attention to it anytime soon — it doesn’t fit the mainstream narrative that only majority Muslim countries deploy groups of extremists that terrorize civilians.

In 2015, the U.N. Development Index rated CAR as having the lowest level of human development. It was ranked dead last. The country is the world’s 12th largest producer of diamonds and is home to a secretive, bloody gold trade and also harbors mineral, uranium, and oil reserves.

Liberation might be just around the corner, though the country’s majority Christian population might exclude it from the U.S. military’s ‘War on Terror’ narrative.

Christianity. The religion of the Prince of Peace. 

Just ask the USAF, USN, Army, Marines, Drone Operators, CIA, Nuclear Weapons physicists, Bio-Weapons designers... All God loving Christians.

I was just having a conversation with Squire about this kind of stuff last night, pointing out that we (in the west) can argue & debate, ruminate & ponder while picking lint out of our belly buttons whereas, in the rest of the world they would look at us like we were crazy.

They would just kill the fuck out of you and not think anything of it, perhaps they might wonder why we make such a big deal out of it...but...that would be about it...no philosophical or moral musings.

Just dead. 

As hard as I try I can't make people realize not everyone "thinks like us"...good-bad or indifferent, it is what it is.

When Trump announced his candidacy, my Muslim bodega shop owner said he wanted to throw a shoe a him, and I let him be the racist that he was,,,never hated him,,,his younger brother who also works the store seems to be an U.S.A.-er.

Since on 9-11 seeing Muslim youth running through my apt building cheering the attacks and ordering pizza, I can't help but think somebody was proud our country is now less yo the max for it.

I hate Commies because they hate my freedom i once had.

nmewn's picture

Yeah, I guess its all in what one is exposed to, where they get their info, their general curiosity and their willingness to fact check.

As for myself, I don't think Trump is an uninhibited "racist" (whatever that winds up meaning these days after the word has been rendered useless as a cudgel by over use) and I do think Americans have the unique ability to laugh at ourselves whether its drunken Irish or African welfare queens driving Cadillac's because of our past.

Personally I don't take much of it very seriously and yeah, I have a Muslim for my family doctor, she frowns at my multiple habits..."You should stop this! You are keeeling yourself, you infidel!"...ok I threw in the infidel part (lol) but she smiles when I say we all gotta go sometime and I intend to go out on my own terms.

But I don't think she's trying to kill me, might be different if I were in Africa or the ME tho ;-)

My son's doc is a black liberal and we don't care,,,he recently saw a black African dentist that was super funny,,,and fact the whole docs office is staffed by immigrants and serves 90% non whites,,,and we feel they care more about care than the VA where my dad goes...SAD!

nmewn's picture

lol...the closest I can get to that is, I was once stitched up by black doctor who thought he was Bill Cosby. After about the 30th stitch I didn't see the humor in it anymore at all, got up and told him we were done, the rest would have to heal on its own.

I did accept his script for pain killers tho ;-)

I just wish some immigrants would assimilate more readily and not want to recreate their squaler + welfare here like Soros has instructed them to do.

nmewn's picture

Yeah I think thats what a lot of people from overseas don't understand, there has to be an "absorption period" where "they" get to understand us and we get to understand them...and the edges get filed off...ethnically, culturally, religiously. Assimilation. It can't be the ole, come on over "liberties torch at the golden door" crap anymore.

At the end of the day we are still a majority nation of Judeo-Christian ethic as is all of the west. Our laws are based on it, our culture too (as corrupted by commercialism as it may be) and freedom of religion is not the same as freedom from religion, which also cannot be escaped by Islam no matter what Laddie says up top. Islam is State, to the fundamentalist and there is no separating it in their brains while the west got over the heretic thing centuries ago.

JFK preached the same blind spot you just did.

The barbarians are not Westerners, let alone Americans - nor will they ever be. Treating them well, inviting them in won't make them American - it will destory what is left of America. Learn from the death of Rome.

We are ALL at war with one another, the only difference is intensity. I'm at war with my wife most days and for sure with my employees and even my customers, but in the ME and Africa, their war is far more intense. The point being, that intensity can change very quickly, and we ALL have a murdered hiding inside of us only waiting to be brought out into the light. Just a little promting combined with a hyper Political correctness that enables and allows the murdering to commence. We have seen PC as something that would typically inhibit violence, but when you look at how it has morphed over the last deade here, we see how it can be used to promote violence and hate.

You win with your wife by calling her the c* word when approp and she calls you the d* word when approp then you rebut when the c* word stat and then you don't talk for days but in the end you feel better at having won when she starts speaking and f'ing you again.

Weakness is not a virtue.

"drunken Irish"

You SOB!  As a drunken Irish, I resemble that remark!  If I remember right, the schoolyard term for me was Mick, which was the equivlent of me callling anyone else a wop, spick, nigger, spic, wetback, jap, slant-eye or tonto.  When I was s kid, these were feel good names we'd jeer at each other while we'd play the universal game, across all the elementary schools I went to (military kid, not reform schools) "Smear teh Queer".

For you youngsters, Smear the Queer involved a ball, of any sort, chaos, a healthy dose of adult inattention, and a pack of boys.  Whatever served as the ball was thrown up, and one of us dumbasses would cath it and start running randomly.  The goal was to postpone getting your ass beat in a dogpile.  All great fun and we didn't care who was playing.  Mick, wop, spic, nigger, jap, slant-eye or tonto.

This PC shit is so fucked up, kids can't even be kids without going to jail any more.

Political correctness...another invention of Marxists.

Created solely for the purpose of ending debate on ideas and upholding cherished traditions or values. An amorphous way of "speak-thinking", an indoctrination to make one insane and lazy, as it contorts and continually shapes itself into yet another "set of values" as the need may arise, discarding any former relationship or pretense with any past truth or conformity it may have promoted or professed to have one week ago or...even one minute ago.

It is how a leftist mind can sneer at a Tea Party member while calling them a teabagger. It allows them to rail against all corporations, except for the NYT's and Solyndra without the slightest hint of hypocrisy on their part. It can even be contorted to justify the theft committed by individuals via EBT while at the same time advocating for the 100% taxation of another.

It doesn't have to be logical or rational or sane or principled. 

As of today and of right this second, it just has to be "genderfluid" ;-)

"As hard as I try I can't make people realize not everyone "thinks like us"...good-bad or indifferent, it is what it is."

Bravo nmewn. People rarely recognise the impact of belonging or not belonging to a culture. Westerners in particular. Might as well as be on LSD most of the time for how much sense you can talk into them. Truth is, the culture one belongs to forms the entirety of one's own "logic grid" through which we view the world.

I remember talking to a yankee woman once, saying that if the government didn't like what its people were doing they could just drive tanks over them.

"You can't do that!" she persisted in saying.

I tried to teach her that if a soldier put his foot on the tank's excelerator then the tank would indeed move forward, regardless of whether or not Americans were in the way, but the mental block was too solid to clear.

Cultural bias - blindling people from reality for all human history. Well picked up.
