Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move

Sad Omission

Another Media Blackout

From the Conservative Tribune:
In the hours after a deranged man killed nine people and injured others at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, a vast segment of the mainstream media immediately attacked guns, Republicans, conservatives and the National Rifle Association.

As usual, President Barack Obama danced on the graves of the deceased in an attempt to push his gun control agenda, just like he’s done after every mass shooting. It was truly a disgusting display.

Conservative Hollywood actor James Woods pointed out another interesting media omission that should be at the forefront of the story — the fact that the media forgot to emphasize that the shooter asked nearly every victim what religion they were. According to eyewitness reports, answering “Christian” was a death sentence.

Woods took to his Twitter account not long after the shooting and made a prediction that ended up being a massive truth bomb. “If it is determined that the Oregon shooter targeted Christians specifically, that’s the last we will hear of it on MSM,” Woods wrote.

The next day, he was proven right, when he called out The New York Times for leaving out the part about Christians dying.

“NY Times writes a front page story about a hate massacre targeting Christians without using the word ‘Christians.'” Woods posted on Twitter.

Not long after witnesses described the chilling motive of the shooter, all but a few mainstream outlets reported every tiny detail about the shooting that they knew of … except for the whole Christian part.

One only has to look at a recent mass shooting case to see the media’s true motivation. Within hours after the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting, the white killer was immediately linked to the KKK and other hate groups. It was the first part of most of the headlines over the following days and weeks.

And let’s be completely honest, if the killer were white and specifically targeted Muslims or other “protected” religions and ethnicities, we wouldn’t hear the end of it.

But Christians? Nah, no big deal, right?

Am I alone in noticing the large increase in these since O has been in office? Almost as if he orchestrated this events to back up his agenda. Just a thought.

Yes I heard about the shooter asking about the victims religion and then shooting those who said Christian it was mentioned a fair bit on the news reports here
