Nets Cover Gorilla Death 6x More Than ISIS Christian Beheading

It’s the very definition of absurdity: the networks have covered the death of one gorilla more than the deaths of 21 Christians beheaded by ISIS for their faith.

On Saturday, a gorilla named Harambe was shot after a toddler fell into the animal’s enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. The broadcast networks routinely prioritize animal life over human life, and Harambe was no exception.

In the same vein… h/t Terrence

Harambe vs Chicago

  • Because Christians.

      Now if someone had beheaded a muslim it would be front page news….. even if the fact the muslim was murdered for raping the sttackers child had to be hidden on page 20.

      • Exactly.

        Everyone will rue the day they let society go like this.

          I already do. I’ve hit the point of just refusing to deal with stupid people.

          • There are far too many of them.

          • Exile1981

            yes but i’m done; stupid people need not apply.

          • They are the chaff.

            Like CRA telling me they have a new bulletin on interpretation of a tax rule that supercedes the old one I used. The new interpretation came out in december of 2015 and still isn’t available to the public, but they are trying to apply it to an audit of my 2013 taxes…

          • And this is just the beginning of the over-taxation system.

          • Exile1981

            I see CRA openly going after “enemies” of Turdeau soon.

          • The entirety of Canada is Trudeau’s enemy. He will tax everyone to death.

          • Exile1981

            or maybe turdeau is an enemy to freedom.

          • Both.

        Or even if it was another Muslim who did the beheading whose identity would not be disclosed of course.

    The purpose of network newscasts is not to inform the public, but to sell product. Editorial decisions are based on attaining that goal.

    Overkill on the beheadings (sorry, no pun intended). It’s not every day that we have an opportunity to see King Kong redux.

    If only a Muslim kitten could be wantonly slaughtered protecting a little black baby from The Donald while his lesbian, disabled, hajib wearing mothers looked on in anguish…well then you’d have a real story.
