Over three weeks ago, more than 300 students were kidnapped in Nigeria by Moslem terrorists, taken from a government boarding school for girls. Over 50 escaped and told their stories but some 276 remain captives of the Boko Haram Islamists, a fanatic and ruthless group of mostly young men. According to present word from the girls’ captors, the mostly teenaged girls are to be sold as slaves. We assume, after the young men are through with them.
Because this pathetic story has somehow leaked out into the Internet and is even beginning to appear on Fox News, we heard of it. It has raised some questions for us, several sorts of questions. For instance, we’re told our species originated in Africa and spread from there. So given that head start, why is Africa among the least civilized bits of our planet? What kind of place can see over 300 teen girls hauled away by uniformed men in trucks, cars and on motorcycles with nobody then able to find them, even though a substantial number escaped along the way? They do have cell phones there …
Another question is, what sort of “religion” are these ‘devout’ Moslems selling? American and European Leftues maunder on about “Islam, the religion of Peace” sure enough but in practice, that seems to amount to whatever ‘Peace’ is available in slavery or a grave. The reports of this atrocity have carefully avoided telling us much of the girls who are the victims; we assume that means that they are likely, Christians. The reports haven’t mentioned the fact that most Nigerians are black, either. Obviously, we ought to know that in the first place and less obviously, our media don’t want to bring up black people selling other black folk into slavery. That inconveniently dilutes U.S. white gult over extinct U.S. slavery, especially as it is still going on.
But the Really Big Question for us, is a double-barreled one: Why has the abduction of over 300 girls at one time from one place been ignored by the news media for three weeks? And the second part: With over 300 mostly teen girls taken as sex toys and slaves, where are the feminists and the NAACP? Imagine 3 girls taken that way in the U.S. or Europe! But black girls stolen by devout black Moslems is inconvenient for the Liberal American narrative; it fails to reinforce the chosen piety and so it can’t be news. The saddest aspect of this pathetic spectacle is that to the Liberal feminists and blacks, far off Christian Nigerians don’t really seem to matter.
