“Never let a crisis go to waste” was the famous credo of Obama’s former chief of staff, and current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel.

And it’s advice that the liberal news media is certainly taking to heart–because they’re now blaming the horrific shooting in Oregon squarely on the Republicans to score political points.

Correspondent Nancy Cordes gave a special report on CBS News, where she slammed Republicans and conservative-leaning nonprofits like the NRA.

“Sympathy and best wishes are all about the victims’ families can expect from Congress,” she fumed, “which has not seriously debated strengthening gun laws since 2013, after 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.”

But the media wasn’t alone directing their outrage at Republicans–it was Barack Obama who gave them permission to do so.

In a speech after the shooting on Thursday, Obama called for national outrage and exploited the crisis in order to seek tougher gun laws. He said, “Somebody, somewhere will comment and say, Obama politicized this issue. Well, this is something we should politicize.”

But while Obama–a politician–might be eager to politicize something, it’s not something Americans should expect from their so-called “unbiased” mainstream media.

If the state of Oregon thought it could bully Christians into line on gay marriage, well, it didn’t quite go as they expected.

Aaron and Melissa Klein, who owned the bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa, refused to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding. The couple filed a lawsuit against

Last month, the Kleins–who had already lost their bakery due to legal fees and a drop-off in business–were hit with a massive $135,000 fine, payable to the lesbian couple in question, to compensate for “damages for emotional and mental suffering” they apparently suffered after not getting a cake baked for them.

The massive fine was, largely, because Oregon sought to make an example of them and give a strong message to other Christians: “Support gay marriage, or pay the price.”

Unfortunately for Oregon, it looks like Christians don’t cave so easily–because many of them have rallied to support the Kleins. And not just with words of encouragement and support–but by gifting them money to help pay the fine.

In fact, the Kleins, who launched a crowdfunding drive on the website Continue to Give to help pay down their fine, have already raised about $286,000–more than double the amount needed to pay their fine.

“For this to go this far, it’s ridiculous,” Aaron Klein told a local Fox News station. “It should scare every American.” He went on to call what he and his wife suffered part of a greater nationwide “persecution of Christians.”

For now, the Kleins plan to call for a judicial review, which would allow their fine to be revisited by the Oregon court system before they had to pay anything.

But beyond that, the Kleins also plan to change the system–and better protect vulnerable Christian small business owners like themselves in the future.

“I would appeal to everybody in the state of Oregon,” Aaron Klein added, in his interview. “Understand that this is the way things operate. We need to institute change, take the government to task for violating our constitutional freedoms at whatever level they are doing it.”
