Ah, the moral equivalency token is being flipped out yet again because Liberals just can’t deal with the idea of actual evil (other than Republicans who are the spawn of Satan himself of course).
President Barack Obama set off a firestorm Thursday morning by comparing ISIS barbarity to the Crusades.
Obama recalled the savagery carried out nearly 1,000 years ago in the name of Christ while speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., but his equivocation fell on outraged ears.
The president railed against the Islamic State, calling it “a brutal, vicious death cult” that slaughters and enslaves innocents all in the name of religion.
His next comments, which recalled “terrible deeds … including slavery” that happened during the Crusades and were “justified in the name of Christ.”
Must have been revenge for a thousand years earlier when The Romans were feeding Christians to the lions or does Pantheism count as a religion? 🙂
Or maybe we should bring up Sen. Robert Byrd (D) who was a KKK Grand Wizard and that Southern Democrats were against Civil Rights in the 1960’s.
Naw. Like The Left wouldn’t care. Truth never matters.
This is just another poor attempt by the Left to justify their hatred of Christians and their appeasement towards Muslims and to be Politically Correct.
They can’t deal with outright evil (except when it come to Republicans!) so they have to go the moral equivalency route to justify their appeasement and Political Correctness.
“Our nation is stronger when people of all faiths feel they are welcome,” Obama continued. “So humility is needed.”
And he is the very picture of humility. 🙂
They can be “welcome” but you still have to call a spade a spade and an Islamic terrorist and Islamic Terrorist! But he can’t. That’s a Thoughtcrime.
“ISIS chops off heads, incinerates hostages, kills gays, enslaves girls. Obama: Blame the Crusades,” she wrote on Twitter.
Another conservative pundit, Dereck Hale, also vented his outrage on Twitter.
“I am shocked, shocked that the guy who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years would defend Islamic violence by attacking Christianity,” tweeted Hale.
“America’s Chickens have come home to roost! God Damn America!!” 🙂
“So Obama’s not interested in fighting radical Islam today because of stuff Christians did in the 11th Century,” conservative media watchdog Matt Philbin tweeted.
We’re all evil so their is no evil to fight, except anyone who disagrees with us on The Left, that is. 🙂
Several people also pointed out the Crusades were in response to violence perpetrated by Muslims.
“Yes, let’s all pretend Islam had nothing to do with the Crusades,” J.R. Holmstead angrily wrote on Twitter.
(they were the victims of evil Christians, you know)
“Did the [president] happen to mention the reason for those crusades,” another person asked.
Several people pointed out the Crusades happened 800-1,000 years ago.
“When you have to go back that far for an example, you’ve made the point that Christianity doesn’t engage in such behavior,” R.D. Brewer tweeted.
Obama may or may not address the reaction to his controversial comparison, but that likely will not keep conservatives from hammering him for it.
“I have had [it] with equivocating,” tweeted Stacey Lennox. “SERIOUSLY had it.”
But it’s fundamental to the Liberal psyche. The only absolute they can deal with is that THEY are absolutely right absolutely every time about absolutely everything, everything else is equivocation. 🙂
