Palin’s Church Damaged By Arson

The church that Sarah Palin attends was damaged by an arsonist and the coward who set the fire did so while there were people inside (Palin was no there at the time). Palin apologized if the negative attention directed at the church when she was the VP candidate had anything to do with the fire. So far, there is no indication that this was the motivation.

The news report stated that the church was damaged by arson. It has been mentioned a little on the news but there has been no wall to wall coverage of this crime.

If there had been a fire at a predominantly black church there would be special reports discussing it and talking about a hate crime. Certainly there would be speculation that some radical white group committed the hate crime.

If the church that Barack Obama attended for 20 years listening to hatred and rants against white people had been burned there would be special news shows dedicated to the event. There would be huge font headlines in all the papers decrying the hate crime directed at the church Obama attended. Chris Matthews would be longing for a new leg tingle and Keith Olberman, the most deranged and idiotic person on TV, would go on some rant about how right wing talk radio and Bill O’Reilly created an environment where this could happen.

As it stands right now though, there is little to go on. There was a fire that investigators said was arson and they are looking into it. I certainly don’t expect them to make a big deal out of it until they find out who did it. I merely point out how the burning of her church is portrayed differently than the burning of a church where most of the members are black.

And one can only imagine what the news would be like if someone had burned a mosque, especially if there were people in it.

Maybe they will find out it was actually old wiring. Then again maybe they will find who did it and he will disappear in the frozen tundra…

One Response to “Palin’s Church Damaged By Arson”

  1. Sarah Palin is an evangelical Christian, as is her church, which happens also to be predominantly white with regard to the congregation. Incidents of vandalism on such churches is rarely reported by the msm.

    The old double standard.
