Pat Robertson and Michele Bachmann warn about Media Whitewash on Terrorism
Erick Stackelbeck, the sports reported turned terrorism analyst for the Christian Broadcasting Netowrk, hosted a segment on the 700 Club today looking into how “political correctness takes over in mainstream reporting on Islamic terrorism.” Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) told Stackelbeck that “our media is refusing to tell the story” about Islamic extremists because the media “come from a decidedly leftist worldview and a secular—almost an anti-secular in a way—because they’ve embraced such a radical worldview and they impose that filter through every subject they touch.”
Following the segment, 700 Club host Pat Robertson, who routinely compares his anti-Muslim politics to the fight against the Nazis, echoed Bachmann's view, saying that today the media is afraid to call out Muslim extremists, unlike in the past when the media was eager to ridicule Nazis and Communists and even “these fierce evil Japs.”
Watch an excerpt of Bachmann’s appearance on the 700 Club and Robertson’s commentary here:
Bachmann: The world is being turned upside down because of radical Islam and our media is refusing to tell the story…. They come from a decidedly leftist worldview and a secular—almost an anti-secular in a way—because they’ve embraced such a radical worldview and they impose that filter through every subject they touch.”
Robertson: In World War II we didn’t have any trouble identifying the Nazis, no problem at all, Adolf Hitler was a bad man, the Nazis were bad people, same thing later on with the Communists, of course there was a third column here that was trying to make Joe Stalin look like a folk hero. Certainly in World War II look what we did with Hirohito and the Japanese and the cartoons that came out and the ridicule that we had, these fierce evil Japs, well so you say, ‘that was a little bit over the top,’ well not really if they’re trying to kill you. The same thing is true with these others; they want to destroy Western civilization. They want to bring us back to the Arabia of the 7th and 8th centuries, that’s what you find in the Qur’an.
