PARIS, FRANCE — The jury is still out on whether the fire was caused by arson or just bad safety protocols when rennovating, but the iconic French cathedral’s combustion has a bigger meaning, one famous Islam expert told Big League Politics in an exclusive.
Anti-radical Islam activist and bestselling author Pamela Geller in a statement to Big League Politics remarked that the Notre Dame fire is “emblematic of the decline and demise of Christianity.”
As Geller explains:
Whether the fire was arson or an accident, it is emblematic of the decline and demise of Christianity and Judeo-Christian culture in Europe. It also must be borne in mind that many churches all over France have been vandalized, and some have been set ablaze, in recent weeks.
We checked, and she is correct. There is a pattern of church-targeted violence in France within the past month and it’s noteworthy, the ardent and constantly at-risk culture warrior says.
“There have been foes of the Catholic Church in France for centuries, but this large-scale vandalism and arson has only taken place after the Muslim migrant influx,” Geller notes.
Big League Politics released its own coverage of the uptick in anti-Christian (or anti-Catholic) violence within France’s borders on Monday, April 15. In his story, Peter D’Abrosca recounts the very transparent display of dhimmitude at Fox News Channel in the wake of the Notre Dame fire.
Fox News anchors conspicuously and obnoxiously ended interviews with two separate guests when they began to talk about the rash of targeted attacks against Catholic churches in France.
“You need to know that for the past year we’ve had churches desecrated each and every week in France – all over France,” French politician Philippe Kersenty told Fox’s Shep Smith. “The politically correct will try to tell you this is an accident – ”
“Sir, sir, sir – we’re not going to speculate here of the cause of something that we don’t know,” he said. “If you have observations, or you know something, we would love to hear it.”
Later, host Neil Cavuto did the same to his own guest, reported Big League’s own Peter D’Abrosca.
“Well, Neil, if it is an accident it’s a monumental tragedy,” said Catholic League President Bill Donohue. “Just last month a 17th Century church was set on fire in Paris. We’ve seen tabernacles knocked down, crosses have been knocked down. Statues have been – ”
Donahue, too, was interrupted, D’Abrosca writes.
Vandals and arsonists have targeted French churches in a wave of attacks that has lasted nearly two months.
“More than 10 churches have been hit since the beginning of February, with some set on fire while others were severely desecrated or damaged,” reports Crux, a Catholic publication, adding that, “St. Sulpice, the second-largest church in Paris, after Notre Dame Cathedral, had the large wooden door on its southern transept set ablaze March 17.”
For Catholic faithful, it’s beginning to look bleak. “Investigators confirmed March 18 that the fire was started deliberately, according to the website of the Vienna-based Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, an independent organization founded with the help of the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences,” the Crux story continued.
For Geller, Notre Dame is about much more than the loss of a prescious historical site. It’s about the death of France itself.
“Whether or not the Notre Dame fire is a result of that influx, France is sooner or later going to have to face the implications of importing large numbers of people who hate Christianity and French culture,” she stated.
And this time, there may be nothing left for Lafayette’s American cousins to liberate.
Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
