[VIDEO] When it comes to the media and dead children, some children are more equal than others

Ebba Akerlund Sweden dead children

Two British journalists speak bluntly about the fact that our media is forcing us to care more about the enemy’s dead children than about our own.

Paul Joseph Watson, who should have a bigger, better, less conspiracy-oriented venue than Alex Jones’ InfoWars, has published his most recent video, this time about what’s happening in Sweden. I agree with him completely on every point. The Swedes have self-righteously, condescendingly, and superciliously cultivated dangerous people and I don’t have much sympathy for them. They are living proof of Darwinism in action when it comes to nations too arrogant to have any sense of self-preservation.

Except . . . except that I’m terribly sorry about Ebba Akerlund, the little girl who died. The sad reality of evil people and their evil actions is that children are always the most vulnerable. I’ve talked about this before in the context of just wars against tyranny, such as the war against Nazi Germany (we definitely killed children with our bombs) or the hypothetical children who would inevitably die if we were to engage in a just war against ISIS. (By the way, I’m not advocating a direct war against ISIS. The Middle East is a morass that sucks everyone in. I’m speaking in hypothetical terms.)

The MSM would have you believe that it cares about children but it doesn’t, not really. I’ve always known this at a sort of subliminal level. Paul Joseph Watson, at 2:15 in the following video, puts his finger on the actual fact that proves that, to the MSM, not all children are equal. The dead children that have worth are those that advance a political cause (always a Leftist one). The rest? Meh.

Coincidentally, Allison Pearson, another fed-up Brit, made preciously the same point yesterday about the media and dead children:

I’m sorry if I sound bitter, but it becomes harder and harder to ward off cynicism when each terrorist attack in Western Europe meets with the same dishonest and evasive response.

The first thing that happens just after a massacre (a word that is never ever used, please note) is the gore and the brutality are played down. We are allowed to look upon gassed twins in Syria, their lovely faces growing pinched and waxen in their father’s arms, but a curtain must be drawn over the maimed bodies of our own victims.

As swiftly as is feasible, once they have removed the corpses and power-hosed the blood, attention turns to feelgood stories of heroism and survival. The passive tense is adopted in news reports. French teenagers deliberately mown down by a car travelling at 76mph on the pavement of Westminster Bridge are “caught up in the violence”. Exactly like that 11-year-old girl in Stockholm 
Except she wasn’t “caught up in the violence”, was she? The poor child was murdered in broad daylight on a main street of the capital city of a country that has done more than any other to welcome Muslim asylum seekers by a failed Muslim asylum seeker.

Quite by accident, I saw pictures of the Stockholm carnage. Lying in the middle of the road, a woman had been severed from her leg, which lay a few feet away. Gut-wrenching butchery. In another shot, a dog lay dead on the pavement; nearby was all that was left of a human being.

The pictures fill you with absolute horror. They make you cry out: “How the hell has this been allowed to happen?” That’s why we’re not allowed to see them. In case we get angry. Look away, please! It’s time for another vigil, time to light some candles, time for a politician to put on a resolute face and say: “The terrorists will never divide us.”

We are being lied to and manipulated when the media hides from us the horror of the enemies’ actions against our children and inundates us with images of the enemy’s children. All dead children are a terrible tragedy but in a sane world, we should be caring more about our own dead children than about the enemy’s.
