BY BENJAMIN FEARNOW//Right Wing Radio Host Says ‘Muslims Are Treated Better Than Christians And White People’ In America.

Right-wing radio host Jesse Lee Peterson claimed Muslims in America are “treated better” than white people as he expressed concern that repressed white Americans may be incited to carry out an attack in the U.S. similar to the recent massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left at least 50 dead.

Peterson said during his Friday radio show that “white people are getting angry rather than speaking up prior to anger” because “normal whites” and Christians are treated more poorly in the U.S. than Muslims are.

The controversial pro–Donald Trump host rejected the labeling of suspected Christchurch mosque shooter as a “white supremacist,” claiming he doesn’t understand the news media’s definition. Peterson warned listeners not to support politicians, including Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, because “if white people get angry, this is what’s going to happen” in the United States. 

Peterson, who is black, claimed on his national show he doesn’t “really know what it means” for someone to be a white supremacist in New Zealand and derided the term.

“But I know here in this country, the antifa people are protected,” he said, referring to anti-fascist militant groups. “And they are more violent and terrorist than normal whites. But the normal whites are called ‘white supremacy’ while the radical, antifa whites are being protected” by the Democratic Party and news media. 

Peterson went on to justify his claim that Muslims in America are treated better than white people by pointing to the 2018 election of Minnesota Democrat Omar and Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib, the nation’s first two Muslim congresswomen. 

“In this country, the Muslims are treated better than the Christians and white people,” Peterson continued. “We just saw where they allow two Muslims to become congressmen [sic] in our government, and that is not good. Those two women hate Israel, and they hate America.”

Both Tlaib and Omar expressed their sadness and shock with the news last Friday of the New Zealand massacre. Tlaib issued a statement saying, “This morning I tried to hold back tears as I hugged my two brown, Muslim boys a little tighter and longer. I am so angry at those who follow the ‘white supremacy’ agenda in my own country that sends a signal across the world that massacres like this is some kind of call to action.”

Peterson gave some advice to angry white people who may be considering mimicking the New Zealand mosque shooting: “You’ve got to start standing up before you get your anger out of control in this country.”

On Sunday morning, Peterson tweeted a headline from the right-wing New American magazine to his nearly 55,000 followers: “Christchurch Shooter Praises Communist China, Condemns Conservatism and Capitalism: Media Call Him a Trump Supporter.” The right-wing minister is only one of dozens of high-profile conservatives defending Trump and his rhetoric against accusations he influenced the New Zealand shooter.

Last year, Peterson claimed there wasn’t one thing he could think of that black people went into and “made better.” And a white producer of his show proclaimed on the air that the n-word is not racist.

That is an important distinction to note, because SKY has taken Sky News Australia off the air in the country over their coverage of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch.

The Christchurch mosque shootings were two consecutive terrorist mass shootings at Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday prayers on 15 March 2019. The attacks killed 50 people and injured at least 50. The alleged perpetrator was arrested and charged with murder.

Both the integrity of the investigation and the distress among viewers were cited – AIWA! NO!

Members of a New Zealand biker gang have performed the haka to honour the victims of the mass shootings in Christchurch. Before doing so, the gang’s spokesperson thanked the New Zealand police for their work. Mosques in New Zealand have been inundated with floral tributes and messages of support after the massacre, in which 50 people were killed

SKY New Zealand is a satellite and cable provider, and not part of the more famous Sky News, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. That is an important distinction to note, because SKY has taken Sky News Australia off the air in the country over their coverage of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch.

SKY tweeted about the reason for their decision on Friday.

The controversy was over Sky News Australia replaying footage from the infamous video streamed by the murderer during the rampage.

New Zealand police advised people not to show the footage in a tweet sent on Thursday. “Police are aware there is extremely distressing footage relating to the incident in Christchurch circulating online,” it read. We would strongly urge that the link not be shared. We are working to have any footage removed.”

Nevertheless, News Corp’s Sky News Australia continued showing the footage, which prompted the pulling of the plug.

The above tweet from SKY New Zealand was deleted on Saturday and replaced with a more specific explanation.

A spokesperson for SKY told the New Zealand Herald that the decision was made on behalf of their viewers and the people of New Zealand.

“We made the decision to remove Sky News Australia from our platform while disturbing footage of the shootings was being shown to avoid causing any distress to our viewers,” the spokesperson said. “It will remain off air until we are confident the footage won’t be shared.”

Later, more emphasis was place on the integrity of the investigation, and credited Sky News Australia for prompt cooperation, in a statement to Buzzfeed

“As the live rolling events of the Christchurch shooting unfolded, an editorial decision was made by Sky News Australia to offer sports programming to SKY NZ in place of Sky News Australia’s live feed to ensure any footage or reporting did not compromise the ongoing investigations taking place in New Zealand,” they said. “Sky News Australia acted responsibly and prudently in replacing the service as soon as it was able to early yesterday evening after consulting with SKY NZ management.”

A bit of a story shift over the course of a day or so, in that they removed and replaced their tweet, and their spokespeople offered two different explanations for the basis of the decision, as well as who actually made the decision.

"There are two ways you can respond to an attack like this - you can respond with fear or you can respond with friendship," he said.

“There are two ways you can respond to an attack like this – you can respond with fear or you can respond with friendship,”
Andrew Graystone – AIWA! NO!

A man from England is being praised online after he stood outside his local mosque holding a sign saying he will “keep watch” while Muslim worshippers pray after a terror attack that targeted two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday left at least 49 people dead.

Andrew Graystone can be seen in a photo holding a sign saying, “You are my friends. I will keep watch while you pray,” while standing outside of the Medina Mosque in Manchester.

Graystone told the BBC on Saturday that Muslims attending the mosque “beamed” after seeing his gesture.

“There are two ways you can respond to an attack like this – you can respond with fear or you can respond with friendship,” he said.

Graystone told the international news agency that he chose to stand outside of his local mosque because he “wanted to make sure that people know we can respond with friendship”.

“As people walked up, you could see in their eyes that they were looking at somebody standing outside their mosque, thinking ‘Oh no, is this some kind of protest or whatever,’” he said. 

“And then when they saw the message saying ‘You are my friend’, their faces broke and they beamed and smiled,” he continued. 

Graystone, who runs a Christian charity, told the outlet that he was surprised by the overwhelming amount of support he received on Twitter for the act of kindness.

“I hadn’t intended for anybody other than the people at Medina Mosque to know about this,” he told the BBC.

“But I guess there are little things that lots of people can do to just express friendship rather than fear with Muslim friends, and neighbors and colleagues – so I just took one little action,” he added.
