Chapel Hill and western media bias.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Robert Fantina writes 'With the tragic murder of three young Muslims at Chapel Hill University, apparently by an avowed atheist, it will be interesting to see the reactions from the media, politicians and the public. Let us consider some possibilities, based on recent history.' Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Fantina amusingly adds 'It will be interesting to see who is asked to apologize for this crime; perhaps there will be calls for all atheists to do so, although this is, of course, highly unlikely. Atheism is a respected concept in the west, and we all know that atheists, unlike Muslims, are individuals capable of independent thought. It will also be interesting to see how right wing journalists and so-called ministers respond; they are quick to condemn Islam with every invented opportunity, and since they are no fans of atheism, they will have to engage in some interesting verbal gymnastics to condemn atheism without somehow expressing sympathy for Muslims.'

Removal of resistance: It is worth noting that 'following the shootings at Charlie Hebdo, violence against Muslims around the world spiked'. Unification: If there is no significant media bias, the words 'chapel hill' would be much more known - ie people would in much larger numbers be aware of that particular killing. I mention this as there are still plenty of people unscientific enough to kid themselves that there is no media bias against muslims in the west.
