A series of terror attacks in Sri Lanka, where Islamic extremists targeted churches and luxury hotels on Easter morning, has claimed nearly 300 lives, but Democratic leaders refuse to even acknowledge the Christians who were terrorized by the Jihadi violence.
Instead of mentioning the Christians who were murdered by Muslim terrorists, the talking point used by many Democratic leaders – including former President Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – was that “Easter worshippers” were targeted by an “attack” committed by unnamed individuals.
The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.

On a day of redemption and hope, the evil of these attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers today are with the dead and injured, and their families. May we find grace.

The fake news media was also on board with the agenda to downplay the terror threat against Christians, showing that the talking point was ordered from the top before the attack even happened.

On the other hand, after last month’s New Zealand mosque massacre, the Democrats and their mainstream media partners tripped over themselves praising the Muslim community while assigning collective blame to white individuals.
Michelle and I send our condolences to the people of New Zealand. We grieve with you and the Muslim community. All of us must stand against hatred in all its forms.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) March 15, 2019
My heart breaks for New Zealand & the global Muslim community. We must continue to fight the perpetuation and normalization of Islamophobia and racism in all its forms.
White supremacist terrorists must be condemned by leaders everywhere. Their murderous hatred must be stopped.

"…White supremacy is a global terror threat. There is a link between the white supremacists here in the US, those in Europe and what we’ve now seen in New Zealand,” says Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League. https://t.co/8MzTwnoSIU pic.twitter.com/u6JA4ygZKP

"[Muslims] have very legitimate fears and they are being told to be afraid by white supremacists and political leaders who believe in white supremacy," CAIR's international executive director and founder Nihad Awad said of the New Zealand mosque attacks https://t.co/lkyzxMemAz pic.twitter.com/Kck0QJvoet

Democrats have become more openly hostile toward Christians in recent years, as they work to force Christian bakers to perform services for homosexual marriages. They are also pushing for late-term abortion up until the point of labor, which is really just the legalized murder of babies.
Radical socialism isn’t the only sinister agenda harbored by the Democrats. They also want to destroy any memory to Jesus as they turn a once-Christian nation into a secular, postmodern wasteland.
Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance
Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.
In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.
Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.
Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.
Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.
Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.
The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.
While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.
As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:
“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”
While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.
It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.
While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
