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.
University of Memphis’s Football Team Will Wear Helmet Decals with Radical Black Lives Matter Branding
University of Memphis is making sure to jump on the radical leftist bandwagon.
On June 30, 2020, Memphis University Tigers football head coach Ryan Silverfield announced on Twitter that his team will don “BLM” stickers during the 2020 season.
“This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE,” Silverfield stated.
The BLM on the helmet decals is an acronym for the Black Lives Matter movement, with the university’s “M” tiger logo taking the place of the acronym’s M.
Silverfield tweeted this logo design a few weeks prior.

Dean Barker of Campus Reform noted that this decision is allegedly apolitical:
Despite Black Lives Matter’s support of leftist-backed causes, such as defunding the police, Silverfield says he does not intend to take a political stance by using the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”
“The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes,” Silverfield said during an interview with The Memphis Commercial Appeal. “It doesn’t mean we support any anti-American, violent organization or hate group or any specific political party. In fact, I love this country and I love our players. Rather the decal is a show of support to our team.”
Baker highlighted some of Silverfield’s credentials:
Silverfield was named head coach of the Tigers on Dec. 13, after leading the Tigers to an American Athletic Conference title, an appearance in the Cotton Bowl, and a #17 national ranking as deputy head coach during the 2019 season.
Ever since the death of George Floyd, Silverfield has been outspoken in anti-racist views. He marched with several colleagues in Memphis Athletics’ recent “Unity Walk.”
“It’s not an overnight deal, but we’ve got to continue to grow and I’ve got to do a better job myself as a head coach because I understand that I have a platform, and I have to voice myself in order to have student-athletes backs and make sure they are not being treated unjustly in all walks of life,” Silverfield commented according to a report by WMC-TV.
Although a number of college athletes took part in similar protests, the University of Memphis’ football team is the first to announce that they will use a decal to spread BLM propaganda.
Silverfield emphasized that the decal will be used continuously during the 2020 season. He believes that the decals will “have an ongoing impact.”
“This can’t just be a one-time thing where I send out a tweet or have one unity march. It’s got to be ongoing,” Silverfield during in an interview with The Athletic. “I can’t think of a better way to show support than to put it on display and do it in a proud way.”
University of Memphis President M. David Rudd declared in a statement released on July 2 that the team’s decal “does not represent endorsement of any political entity or affiliated group; it represents a commitment to social justice and American values we all embrace but have not fully realized as a country.”
“I support our athletic department, our head coach and our football team. I am proud of our young men for demonstrating leadership, encouraging civility, and for their genuine efforts to unite us so our University of Memphis family can become even stronger together,” he continued.
University of Memphis is the latest in universities jumping on the politically correct bandwagon.
More universities and sporting institutions will likely follow in the university’s footsteps, further cementing political correctness’ s hold on the body politics.
