Thousands of Iraqi children face death after ISIS advance; where’s the liberal hashtag campaign?

I just love liberal progressive hypocrisy. Leftists want to monitor Christian sermons but radical Islamic imams and mullahs are ok. It is a human rights violation for a sovereign nation to defend itself against an Islamic terrorist organization but then again the terrorists are actually humanitarians. And it is tragic that Gazans used as human shields are killed, but you hear not a peep about Christians in Mosul being told to convert, pay a jizya submission tax or die.

Americans against the illegal immigrant invasion are told they are not compassionate — after all the “children” are trying to escape crime and violence. So I wonder if we’ll hear anything from the liberal progressive media about this report from CNS News: “A humanitarian tragedy is looming in northwestern Iraq, where up to 25,000 children, mostly from the minority Yazidi community, are among those who fled ahead of advancing Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) jihadists and are now stranded without water or supplies in arid, mountainous terrain.”

The U.N. Children’s Fund in Iraq said Tuesday at least 40 children were already reported to have died, “as a direct consequence of violence, displacement and dehydration over the past two days.”

I’m just waiting for the #campaign from the First Lady and all the Hollywood types. Maybe Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz will write a letter to Emir Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and accuse him of genocide — since they feel Israel was guilty of it. Do any of you think America doesn’t have the capability to find where these Yazidi children are and get them safe passage into Kurdish controlled areas — namely Kirkuk?

Nah, you see, for liberal progressives, compassion is tied to their political agenda. That agenda extends only to illegal aliens that they want in America, since they don’t believe in sovereign borders anyway. Or their agenda allies with Islamic terrorists and the propaganda spewed forth with pictures of hurt little Palestinian children – who were intentionally placed in harm’s way as human shields.

CNS reports that tens of thousands of people fled as ISIS seized control of the town and district of Sinjar west of Mosul at the weekend, pushing back Kurdish “peshmerga” forces who had been providing security there. “Families who fled the area are in immediate need of urgent assistance, including up to 25,000 children who are now stranded in mountains surrounding Sinjar and are in dire need of humanitarian aid including drinking water and sanitation services,” said UNICEF’s Iraq director, Marzio Babille.

Sorry, it’s not politically advantageous for liberal progressives to care about what happens to Iraqi children — after all, Iraq was George W. Bush’s fault. And since they hate Bush so much, then by default you Yazidis must suffer and die so that it can all be blamed on George W. Bush.

As the progressive trolls blather on at this site, “so you want to go back and fight in Iraq” – no, I want to destroy an Islamist army. And that’s not something for which I feel compelled to apologize. As a matter of fact, I would be more than happy to “strap on the gear” and personally go back.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power on Tuesday condemned ISIS (also known as ISIL), for its recent attacks and voiced concern about the situation in the Sinjar region, according to CNS News. “ISIL’s reported abuse, kidnapping, torture and executions of Iraq’s religious and ethnic minorities and its systematic destruction of religious and cultural sites are appalling,” she said.

However, the authorities in Baghdad have been appealing to the U.S. for months –since last August, according to House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.) – to carry out airstrikes against ISIS forces. The appeals were repeated in recent weeks by the Iraqi ambassador to Washington — but of course President Obama has not obliged — after all, it’s Bush’s fault.

The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me. And I know my brothers and sisters in the military — they want to eliminate this enemy. They just want to be able to do it without having one arm tied behind their backs.

When I was in Afghanistan, nothing pleased us more than seeing little girls going to school. We are compassionate, just not selectively so.

If you gear up, Col. West, I guess I’ll volunteer to go with you.

If I were 12+ years younger, so would I.

But now I’m permanently disabled and tethered to the local hospital (thrice-weekly dialysis for failing kidneys).

This world has gone crazy, Christians would never want to k i l l anyone but the Islam faith based people wants to k i l l anyone that is not their “kind”

Donna Sherman

Sorry, gamalh, but I have to disagree with you. Christians, in America, want to kill people. And, a lot would like to kill the Islamic worshipers. Yes, it is true that the followers of Islam are divided by sects that think their Allah is telling them to kill the other sect members. And, for sure, to kill Christians and Jews. But, that’s what their book tells them. The Bible, (New Testament) says to turn the other cheek and fight the battles with Love.

turning the cheek is taken WAY out of context there donna. that was made for if some where to strike your face and hurt your pride, not to stop you from defending yourself or others. He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.-luke 22:36

Absolutely not. We Christians have no desire to kill anyone. Desire/Intent and need are two separate things. Sometimes we NEED to kill someone, whether in self-defense or in putting down evil. Take it from someone who HAS killed, on the battlefield. I did not want to have to fight, but they forced us to by trying to kill us. We were there to speak to a local and then try to repair a bit of desperately needed infrastructure. Unfortunately, we came under fire from some Taliban who didn’t like us being there. Speaking of the book: Luke 22:36 Then said… Read more »

No mam I don’t agree with you, there are not beheading in the street where Christians are in charge of, no k i l l i n g of other faiths. Christians have to defend themselves that is true, and as well they should.

Donna, what is your point, that it is wrong for Christians to want to kill murderous Muslims because the Christian “book” says it’s wrong but it’s less wrong for Muslims to be murderous because their “book” tells them to? So, actions are judged right or right simply by what is in a book? What kind of logic is that? Evil is to be fought, no matter what book the perpetrators carry. Christians do not incur sin by killing evil aggressors. There is a difference between killing and murder.

Yes, I have been watching the situation on the mountain in Iraq, all day. I’m sure you have also heard that the Obama administration is seeking ways to help. But, this is a different war than the one in Israel.

Well, look like Obama’s started to bomb ISIS in Iraq.. Not to help Muslims of course, but to protect his fellow Christians.

Vincent Hare

William, your statement is comical from so many angles. The most notable is the fact that you accurately described the president as a Christian when so many others erroneously keep trying to say he is a Muslim. So by their thinking, he is killing his own people…the Muslims. Now explain that stupid turn of events. If you read and look at the place where this is going on, he is trying to help both….Muslim and Christians children and women.

Bogus news. No children are being killed by ISIS. Let us not cover up the atrocities committed by Israel in Gaza.

Do you want to know who are the real murderers. Watch this amazing documentary. These murderers forced thousands of Americans to commit suicide and forced further thousands to break their marriages. Wakeup Americans. The real enemy is within you. Watch this amazing stuff on YouTube.

Who’s been out incessantly raising big bucks? Seems there are plenty of deep pocketed business types willing to fund dumbass liberal politicians to remain part of the cronies. You guys got your scarecrow. Now follow him to Oz and stay there.

BS, Twinkie-boy.

The right is doing precisely what it should do: Keeping the idiots on the Left from trashing the place.

Unfortunately, we’re stuck with Weepy Boehner running the House.

Even more unfortunately, we’re stuck with Harry “Koch-frenzy” Red kind-of sort-of running the senate.

Nothing that originates in the House makes it to the Senate floor.

Idiots like YOU are the problem.

Now move along. These are not the droids you are looking for.

Steve Wolfe

Good job. I call him Harry Dweeb, and his House pal Nancy Perplexi. They must be smoking something. They and their ilk are masters of rationalizing the absurd. While the nation has serious issues, Dweeb runs in front of cameras to whine that the Redskins football team’s name is “offensive.” Perplexi calls Hamas a “humanitarian organization.” I don’t think pot is even strong enough to make someone that stupid.

Allen, why should we care what the hollywood actors have to say or do as a pollster. They are not going to do anything militarily, so why are you, Allen, trying to act like what they say as Christians, liberals, whatever title you want to use, to stir up animosity and misinformed Americans??If you can’t come up with a plan now, much like you and the GOP couldn’t when you were in congress, nor as they are able to do in the present, don’t say a word.to condemn someone who is trying to take a strategic step.

We already have a clear plan for the next 2.5 years: to continue to defend the line in the sand that we’ve drawn to block the fraud in the White House from causing any more destruction, either here at home or allowing it to happen abroad to our friends and allies.

This is not only a war of guns, but a media war, a media Jihad. It has to be won on all fronts… Keep going Sir, don’t give up. Stand up for Truth, prophesy against Gog and Magog, and the nations… God’s Word will be fulfilled!!!

Don’t worry, the world is not about to end. Talk to your doctor about Gog and Magog, there’s good medications out there.

If you don’t prepare yourself for the end of the world, you’ll most likely miss it, and Yeshua will return to find you fast asleep! His Word to sleeping Christians is “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die. Repent!” (Rev.3). The only medication I’ll use for that (spiritual) condition, are spiritual medications. Yeshua said He came not for the well (those who CLAIM they are well), but for the sick! 25 years ago God told me to MEMORIZE Scripture because the end is near. I’m taking Him seriously!

Yeah you and a million others. As since the beginning of time. Good luck.

How do the liberals feel about the innocent civilians who must surely be among the ISIS convoys being bombed? It’s been widely reported that kidnappings have taken place so these hostages must be with the terrorists. How is that different to the collateral damage in Gaza?
