It is the religion that dare not speak its name...at least on NBC News and at the Associated Press among other politically correct circles. Both media outlets reported on a verdict in an "honor killings" case in Canada while managing to avoid mentioning a certain religion whose name starts with "M." To watch or read both reports, you would think that "honor killings" was some sort of bizarre ritual limited to the family in question or perhaps a few other members of an unspoken "patriarchal culture.
First the AP report on the MSNBC site which does mention a religion but not the one you think:
(Excerpt) Read more at newsbusters.org ...
It must be those danged “M(ormans)” again.
They get blamed for more things now that they don’t have George Bush to kick arround , anymore .... /sarc
I noticed that as well in the article I read. No reference to the M word. However, they did manage to call the father “ultra-conservative”.
I’d bet on a meth head following Dave Ramsay’s Money Makeover before the media mentioning Muslims in a bad light.
gotta be the Amish...its in code!..ask Maxine Waters!...she knows code!!!
Are we certain it wasn’t an honor killing resulting from a feud in a Canadian branch of the Calabrese Ndrangheta? I know I have paisan living in Ontario. I’m sure NBC will follow this lead.
I know! I know! METHODISTS! No, No.
Molochites? Not quite.
Memphisites, followers of Elvis the Divine! Not sure..
Man it’s right on the tip of my tongue. I feel muzzled! Maybe I am hungry and need mo ham.
Maybe the barbed wire cut me ( been fixing fence). Need to wrap a rag around my head to stop the bleeding..
Boy this is tough! I thought I was shaira-p on these things.
Just not my day.
Sorry ... they didnt even label him ultra conservative ... just your run of the mill conservative:
But it’s sharia compliant!!!!
I’m thinking “Methodists”.
It’s not Islam, since that religion begins with a letter “I”.
Not to be confused with the “honor killings” in Mexico...
Remember the Christmas Day murders in Grapevine< TX, when a father murdered six family members before committing suicide. It was a major news story until it became known that the family was Muslim and was unhappy that his daughter was “becoming westernized.”
Mysteriously the media interest suddenly died.
Those darn Mennonites! Mennonites with the moniker Mohammad, making murderous mayhem!
Countdown until Zer0 leaves Office: 355 days as of January 31, 2012.
