… News That Never Was; highlighted news items ignored by the politically bias, liberal agenda driven mainstream media.
Gay Connecticut Couple On Trial For Raping Their Adopted Children… media outrage? Nope. Crickets.
I’m less outraged over the media’s blind eye than I am about the fact that they almost entered a plea deal* that would have given them both probation instead jail time. Can you believe it?! Two grown men stand accused* of raping their adopted child and some judge is OK with letting them go. It was even up for debate regarding whether these would have to register as sex offenders.
So what could have kept these two from walking away and evading justice served if they accepted the plea deal*? More raped children…
But more allegations came to light Friday in the explosive case, and prosecutors said they want to go to trial. [Ya think!]
I know not every gay parent is a rapist. I would lose street cred to even suggest such a wild baseless claim on this one single incident, even if I highly suspect this will not be last we hear of things like this happening. Bad people with all manor of perversions look to harm and sexually exploit innocent children; straight people, gay people – it matters not. Bad people exist and will continue to do so.
No, what I find absolutely appalling is that this couple was so clearly given preferential treatment based solely on their sexual orientation. Imagine for moment the media lynch mob if I teacher at a Catholic university or a Scout leader were arrested for raping several of their adoptive children. When a gay couple does it it’s swept under the rug because it doesn’t fit into the narrative of the liberal media’s agenda that seeks to sanctify all things LGBTQ.
There is a saying in the news industry: “if it bleeds, it leads…” But not always. Perhaps the saying should be changed to, “if it bleeds and is politically expedient it leads, otherwise, it gets buried.
In this particular instance of news that never was, Elizabeth Scalia was referring to the Gosnell Abortion/Murder Trials. The Gosnell Trials also do not garner big media outlet attention because it too fails to fit into the narrative.
If you haven’t been following this grisly case; Kermit Gosnell is an abortion provider on trial for murder. This sick twisted piece of flesh doomed to the torments of hell lest he repent is standing trial for “performing late-term abortions, marveling once that a baby was “so big, he could walk with me to the bus” before he used scissors to snip its spinal cord. Sometimes, he would sever the feet to keep around the office, like trophies.”
The testimony of the witnesses is horrific. Gosnell was killing children who were born alive and screaming. He abandoned one women to die on his abortion table, legs still in stir-ups, after receiving an abortion from his filthy facility. He kept “trophies” of dismembered babies, for hell’s sake!
I thought the morbid-centric media ate this gruesome shit up. But no… again, it doesn’t fit the narrative so it’s not worthy of letting the public know that this is what abortion is. Abortion is murder. Abortion is dead infants. Abortion is sick and twisted, like Saturn devouring his son.
And why haven’t we heard more about this? Trust me, it’s not because the story is too horrifying to comprehend. It’s not considered newsworthy because the talking heads providing the narrative don’t find butchered infants all that shocking. They heart abortion so much they have absolutely no objections to murdering infants.
Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.
Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.
“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd. “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”
“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
Rep. Daniel Davis then asked Snow, “What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
“I do not have that information,” Snow replied. “I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, “You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”
Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”
“I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Oliva.
“That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that,” Snow said.
She doesn’t know how to answer that? Mother of God.
Also not considered “newsworthy” … Catholicism has been classified as “religious extremism” by the US Army Reserves. The Catholic Archdiocese for the Military Services is not impressed.
Meanwhile in Egypt, Coptic St. Mark’s Cathedral has been under attack by real religious extremists.
“… gangs of Muslims attacked the Christian mourners, resulting in the deaths of two more Copts, including one shot through the heart. Hundreds of Christians retreated back into the cathedral — both to get out of harm’s way, and to protect their holiest site. They were trapped there all night, enduring projectile and firebomb attacks. State Security also opened fire on the cathedral, including through tear-gas.”
We don’t hear about this because Christians are supposed to be the only religious fanatics perpetuating violence. That’s the narrative; therefore, the media stays keenly focused on our intolerance and “H8” with little room for much else.
Welcome to the new world where all your information are belong to us.
*I wanted to call attention to a few edits made in this post from it’s original content regarding the gay couple on trial for rape. 1) The disparaging remarks were removed, because it was ugly and I should be above name calling, 2) I added the word “accused” because they have not been proven guilty and guilt should not be presumed with out full evidence, and lastly 3) to note the plea deal was denied by accused couple because the men maintain their innocence and want a trial to clear their names.
I still firmly stand by my assertion that the couple is being given preferential media treatment via lack of coverage because it fails to fit neatly in the narrative.
