On a day in which hundreds of Christians were murdered by terrorists as they were attending church services to celebrate Easter, nearly every major Democrat could could not bring themselves to condemn what it was.
Former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and several other leading Democrats denounced terror attacks on what they called “Easter worshippers” — not Christians — Sunday in Sri Lanka.
Suicide bombers murdered nearly 300 people and wounded 500 more in attacks on three churches, three hotels, and a housing complex. Many were killed as they attended Mass for Easter Sunday. The government reportedly suspects that the bombers, all Sri Lankans, were members of “a domestic Islamist terror group named National Thowfeek Jamaath.”
Yet Obama, Clinton, and other Democrats — including 2020 presidential contender Julián Castro — could not bring themselves to identify the victims of the attacks as “Christians,” calling them “Easter worshippers” instead in eerily similar responses:
But Obama and Clinton had NO problem denouncing the attack in New Zealand mentioning the religion by name:
And they were not alone, with the same, creepily identical phrase used in nearly three dozen Democrat responses:
Reaction was understandably harsh:
I literally never heard the phrase “Easter worshippers” before today. We’re called Christians. pic.twitter.com/AMx5qwqXDU— Jeremy McLellan (@JeremyMcLellan) April 22, 2019
What the heck is an Easter worshipper?— Brittany Pettibone (@BrittPettibone) April 21, 2019
The term that these people are going to such painfully ludicrous lengths to avoid using is “Christian”. pic.twitter.com/9pXXB9kXye
Yep. Pulled out of thin air, scripted, and tweeted out of the Democrat propaganda factory within minutes.
During Obama’s eight years as president, Obama — and Clinton, who served as his first Secretary of State — drew criticism for his reluctance to identify radical Islam as the source of many terror attacks.
In an address to the National Prayer Breakfast in 2015, Obama attempted to draw a moral equivalence between the terror and torture used by the so-called “Islamic State” (or ISIS), and medieval Christianity. He admonished Americans not to “get on our high horse” about radical Islam, since “people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ” centuries ago.
