Justin Raimondo Exposes Small-a Anti-Christ

"American tax dollars fund anti-Christian pogrom" — Christ Almighty! US Foreign Policy vs. Middle Eastern Christianity. His rousing conclusion:
    In Syria, and throughout the region, it is the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches that will be razed to the ground as radical Sunnis backed by the US take power and impose sharia law. If these groups have any lobbying power in the US, I have yet to see them exercise it on behalf of their beleaguered co-religionists. The mainstream media in the Western world, no friend of organized religion of any sort, is content to close its collective eye to the pogrom, whilst cheerleading and covering up for the supposedly heroic rebels. This BBC reporter doesn’t hesitate to ask a nun reporting rebel atrocities if she knows “many people consider you a liar.” Imagine some reporter — particularly one from the BBC — saying that to a Kosovar during the Balkan war. It would never have happened.

    If the Obama administration is trying to reinforce the wacky idea that the President is really a secret Muslim, then they are certainly doing a bang-up job of it. As for me, my view is that, like all statists, the Obamaites are hostile to all religion, just on general principles. The church, after all, is a rival power center to the State. In any case, sympathy for the plight of Christians in the Middle East is not likely to be found in those quarters — but, Christ Almighty, what about the rest of the country? Have we completely lost our moral compass, or is the triumph of militant secularism so complete that we can comfortably ignore our own government’s war on Christianity in the Middle East?

Thank you for posting this (LRC did today also). This is a very important piece that people need to read in full. I've been saying this for years; Raimondo does a great job bringing it up to date given Syria & North Africa.

There are some good ideas mixed uop among all that daftness. If Obama is a secret Muslim, so was George Bush. US Imperial;ism infects both main parties in the US.
