The WORST Take On Sydney’s Terror Attack You Will Ever Read

If this doesn’t demonstrate how insane progressives are, nothing will.

A Christian priest was stabbed in the face by an Islamic jihadist last night, and the UK’s Telegraph went with this headline:

“Stabbed bishop is a lockdown and Covid-19 vaccine sceptic.”

stabbed bishop


Well that explains the stabbing!

Jihadis do get quite upset when people diss the Covid vaccine!

The jihadi didn’t yell “Allahu-Akbar” as he lunged at the churchman.

No, he yelled, “Allahu-AstraZeneca”!

Of course!

Someone needs to tell journalist Nick Squires that just because progressive lefties want to go all stabby on non-jabby people, it doesn’t mean Islamic jihadis want to do the same.

Sure enough, Islamists and progressives share the same violent, totalitarian tendencies.

But I think someone needs to tell Squires that the issues they go full cancel culture on might not be the same.

Could there have been another motive for the terror attack on a Christian preacher?

Squires momentarily pondered the priest’s unacceptable views on homosexuality, saying:

“The fire and brimstone preacher known for his anti-LGBTQ views.”

Oh my goodness. A churchman who disagrees with the LGBTQ narrative!

Well the bishop had it coming then, didn’t he! Bigot!

But wait.

Christians believe homosexuality is a sin that demands repentance. Muslims believe homosexuality is a sin that demands being thrown from a building to one’s death.

Did an Islamic jihadist attack a priest because he believed his views on Gay Pride were too liberal?

I’d love to know how lefty Squires would square that circle!

Motive Unknown

But back to those awful vaccine comments that probably had a lot to do with the priest being attacked.

Squires reported that His Grace Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel had, in July 2021, described lockdown restrictions as “mass slavery” and claimed that the risk posed by Covid had been “exaggerated”.


But worse, the priest had once opined that the best protection against Covid was “natural immunity”!

Squires concluded his article with this brilliant bit of journalistic investigation:

“The motive for the knife attack is unknown and there is no suggestion at this stage that it had anything to do with the bishop’s views on lockdowns or vaccines.”

Hmm. It’s a complete mystery!

Except for the fact that the motive for the attack was as clear as day for anyone not utterly blinded by progressive ideology that insists Muslims are always victims and can never do wrong.

The Islamic jihadist told his victims:

“If they didn’t insult my prophet, I wouldn’t have come here. If he didn’t involve himself in my religion, I would not have come here.”

Yeah, nah.

It must have been the priest’s anti-vax views.

Don’t charge the jihadist with terrorism; appoint him NSW Chief Health Officer.

    No one would have dared saying the Bondi victims deserved it… but it is okay, because he was a Christian!

    How tragic that the UK Telegraph printed that absurd headline. It is unbelievable but it shows the state of the media over there. (that’s even more tragic)
