Fires In Montana …

Winterborn“, Cruxshadows, from the album “Ethernaut, (2003).

I didn’t wake up cranky today. Things just sort of “evolved” that way. And if it is “Evolution” it just has to be OK, right? Can any one say: “Empirical evidence that huge Media Bias Exists, no matter what the MSM may protest”.

Montana Fires, 2017

Montana Fires, 2017

(GREAT FALLS) The 2017 fire season in Montana has been devastating for many people and communities, and as of September 6th, more than one million acres of land has burned.

The figure comes from the Northern Rockies Coordination Center, which is part of the National Interagency Fire Center.

More than 4,000 firefighters have been involved in the battle against the fires this season; two of them lost their lives fighting fires in western Montana.

On the Senate floor Wednesday, both of Montana’s senators gave 10-minute speeches about wildfires in Montana . “Climate change is real, and we can’t continue to sit on the sidelines,” Democratic Senator Jon Tester said. Republican Senator Steve Daines focused on, “The mis-management of our federal forests, and these radical environmentalists.” Both Daines and Tester talked about Montana’s fires in the context of the nation’s attention being primarily on hurricanes at the moment.

It’s not often that NPR makes the grade and gets mentioned in one of my posts. In this case they do so simply because of their willingness to present ANY coverage of the Montana wildfires. A Google search only turned up one other local affiliate of NBC presenting one news report with graphics.

ALL the rest of the coverage is by local media in Montana. I guess that Oil and Race trumps everything in the national media’s consciousness.

After all, we saw the same thing here when Fort McMurray, Alberta was destroyed by wildfires and the coverage both provincially and nationally was half hearted at best – even to including political stars of the left gloating over the “Global Warming Karma” burning Fort McMurray.

Now, the truth is that NPR’s focus in their coverage is the defense of the Environmental Terrorists who are directly responsible for the Montana fires because of their malicious resistance to the initiation of forest management practices which would dramatically reduce the incidence of these fires.

But hey, you have to consider NPR’s audience – that aging cadre of Eco-hippies, Tides Foundation zombies, and World Wildlife Federation Gaia worshipers who routinely express their desire for everyone who doesn’t agree with them to simply “Flake-off and Die”.

I guess that would be understandable amongst the MSM and their worshipers because after all, if it isn’t happening on a coast somewhere then it isn’t happening at all, because everything important involves coastal elites blowing their own horns.

After all, aren’t the victims of wildfires just “bitter clingers in flyover country“. Why on earth would any right thinking person care even a little bit about white Christian voters in flyover country?

It is understandable, in truth, because Midwestern wildfires are nothing more than a distraction from the worship ceremonies at the centre of coastal minds.

Of course if the wildfires are in California!  THAT’s a GLOBAL disaster! Isn’t it? Even a few minor racially motivated fires in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 got national coverage for months by all the MSM. No Media Bias … riiiight.

But what it is really all about is that those bitter clingers in flyover country – that would be us –  are the last vestiges of Western Christian civilization on the planet. That western civilization which gave us EVERYTHING we take totally for granted every day. What the mainstream society worships today is the 7 deadly sins.

So that’s the rest of the news, there’s more going on than hurricanes and beltway scandals, and Justin’s and Rachel’s latest antics, but who cares, right?
