Well, we were waiting for this. It was only a matter of time, and the Washington Post has come through yet again:
Analysis: Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West https://t.co/seWuJwgzwG
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) April 22, 2019
In their piece, Adam Taylor and Rick Noack focus pretty much exclusively on reactions from a handful of far-right nutjobs, ignoring countless conservative and right-leaning non-nutjobs who have condemned the attack in Sri Lanka (just as they condemned the Christchurch massacre). They also very conspicuously gloss over anti-Christian terrorism. What are they trying to say here, exactly?
Wow. That’s your “analysis”? ?

Seriously, wtf is this headline https://t.co/iKarjNGxH1

It’s crap, is what it is.
What a garbage headline.

You're really trying to use more than a hundred dead Christians on the other side of the world as a wedge to demonize the Christian right here?

Dismissing the persecution of Christians? Check. Making the anger over a deadly terrorist attack the focus as opposed to the act itself? Check. That’s pretty despicable. Not to mention a blatant, shameless act of bias.
Only far-right anger. No one else. Nothing to see here, move along.

I mean, a whole religion/philosophy of living was attacked. Kind of a big deal.

WaPo made a point with their headline, for sure. But it wasn’t the one they were going for.
"To some, it was further proof that Christians in many parts of the world are under attack."
— Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) April 22, 2019
Is there someone, anyone, that is not angered by the slaughter of Christians on Easter Sunday. Whoever wrote this analysis is truly a dope.
— Saltine Warrior (@dap260) April 22, 2019
To me it implies that the left in the West doesn't give a damn.
— Denny Loggins (@DennyLoggins) April 22, 2019
Just far-right anger? No one else cares?
— Michael Dekruif (@DekruifMichael) April 22, 2019
Question. Why isn’t the far left angry also?

So the WaPo wasn't angered by this atrocity
— Jason W. (@j4539w) April 22, 2019
So are you saying the left is ok with terrorism?
Congrats, idiots. You played yourself again. https://t.co/GaitRvWO3J

Keep up the great work, WaPo.
Craptastic headlines like this are why people hate the press.
