Unmuslim Terrorists

Everybodys' all atwitter about how Brian Kilmeade over on Fox Newspeak drooled that all terrorists are Muslims. Well, they're not, and everyone with a cerebral cortex is making Unmuslim Terrorists Lists, like this this, and snarky comments like this:

... and what was that religious group that wiped out the wagon train at Mountain Meadows? I forget”

which cracked me up because I used to live in Utah. It's weird though, the biggest and worst non-muslim terrorist group in the world hardly gets mentioned. So here's my entry in the Unmuslim Terrorist Contest. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present


Their leader is a former alter boy who wants to set up a Christian theocracy based on the Biblical Ten Commandments. They have terrorized central Africa for more than 20 years; kidnapped tens of thousands of children, forcing them to fight as child soldiers and serve as sex slaves; murdered and mutilated hundreds of thousands of civilians, more than Al-Qaeda and the Taliban combined.

For all you morons out there saying “Oh Yeah, when was the last time you heard of christians” doing whatever?—it was last December.

The rebel Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) killed at least 321 civilians and abducted 250 others, including at least 80 children, during a previously unreported four-day rampage in the Makombo area of northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo in December 2009, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today.
LRA forces attacked at least 10 villages, capturing, killing, and abducting hundreds of civilians, including women and children. The vast majority of those killed were adult men, whom LRA combatants first tied up and then hacked to death with machetes or crushed their skulls with axes and heavy wooden sticks. The dead include at least 13 women and 23 children, the youngest a 3-year-old girl who was burned to death.

They're not the only Christian terrorist outfit, just the worst, but they aren't on the official US list of terror organizations, and hardly anyone seems to know they exist. They haven't killed rich pretty white girls. Compare:

In this country, when a child is missing, the police mount an investigation, forensic teams come in, Amber Alerts are issued, helplines set up, descriptions sent out over radio and TV, citizens are mobilized, the FBI, the National Guard, anything to catch the kidnapper and rescue the child.  

Not all fuckwits are Brian Kilmeade,
but Brian Kilmeade is a fuckwit.

Horrifying... And yet another sign that the US priorities are so totally skewed.

You're right: nothing for the women of the Congo, nothing to find Joseph Krony, but everything we have to find ... whatever it is 'we're' looking for in Afghanistan.
