Democratic celebrities continue to defend violent crimes against Muslims while ignoring the ones against Christians.
So many celebrities use their fame as a platform to promote liberal propaganda, mainly focusing on the “unfair” treatment of the Muslim community because of their religious struggle. In reality the religion that has been ranked as the most persecuted throughout history and still today is that of Christianity. Yet these so called celebrities of virtue are silent any time one of these violent crimes occurs against a Christian group.
Left-wingers insist that they are the champions of minorities, yet one oppressed group always seems conspicuously absent from their social media virtue-signalling — Christian minorities in the Muslim world, like the estimated 26 Coptic Christians who were massacred by a Muslim gunman in Egypt earlier today.
Normally, any allegation of mistreatment of a minority, even those of dubious provenance like 2015’s “Clock Boy” incident, will be met with an instant wave of reflexive left-wing virtue signalling from celebrities on social media.
Yet this strangely does not seem to apply to the Christian minority in the Middle East, the well-documented persecution of whom occurs on a regular basis. It’s not because of any Anglocentrism on Hollywood’s part — celebrities regularly present themselves as advocates for oppressed groups in the third world, from Rwandans to refugees from Darfur.
