As leftists in America continue to display their “virtue” by pearl-clutching over such non-issues as ableism in Elf, real evil continues to transpire unabated around the world.
In the Congo, perhaps the worst event that could be expected from the Christmas season happened, with a suicide bomber striking a popular spot in Beni and killing eight, including himself. 20 more were injured from the attack.
Among the notable casualties, there was an officer in the country’s 22nd Brigade killed, along with two young girls two young boys wounded. Many more suffered serious fractures or other debilitating injuries.
Police later had to use gunfire to disperse the crowd, which was threatening the investigation, though none were injured by the gunfire.
Though no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, members of the so-called “religion of peace” are looking like prime suspects.
The military officers currently running the city under the state of emergency have blamed the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), one of the deadliest armed groups in the region, for the attack.
The ADF is a Ugandan group composed mainly of radical Muslims. It has close ties to the Islamic State; the Islamic State and affiliated groups have carried out attacks in the war-torn country before.
The war on Christmas isn’t just an American culture war issue; Christians around the world are under heavy attack, often at the hands of Islamists.
