In the wake of the murderous Islamist attack on Christians in Sri Lanka, Democrats took to Twitter to extend their sympathies to people who don’t exist.
“The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity,” blithered Barack Obama. “Easter worshippers” is an empty set, a category made up by Democrats that includes no actual humans. No one worships Easter. We celebrate Easter because we are Christians and it’s the day Christ triumphed over death. There was no such palaver when Muslims were recently attacked by a lunatic in New Zealand. Obama’s well-wishes went out to the nation and the “Muslim community” then.
This mealy-mouthed “Easter worshipper” dishonesty must’ve been in the talking points memo that made the Democrat rounds because a lot of them spewed it. Hillary Clinton mourned with “Easter worshippers and travelers.” Julian Castro repeated “Easter worshipers and tourists.” And so on.
And since we’re talking about dishonest Democrats, let’s take a look at how The New York Times covered the story. “Religious Minorities Across Asia Suffer Amid Surge in Sectarian Politics,” went their sidebar to the main tale. The piece went on to explain that Hindus in India are “pushing an us-versus-them philosophy that has left Muslims fearing they will be lynched if they walk alone.” Plus in Myanmar, the militia has been on a campaign against an ethnic minority that is Muslim. And some moderate Muslims haven’t been very moderate in Indonesia and Bangladesh.
All of which raises the question: what the hell are these idiots talking about?
