This has gone too far. The photos and videos of Islamic terror against Christians in Egypt is horrid beyond belief. We are American Christians. Writing condemnations, no matter how eloquent, is not enough anymore. We need street demonstrations in behalf of our brothers and sisters in Christ -- no matter where they are. Count me in.
White House Jokes About Christians Being Murdered in Egypt
His main response to Islamic terror seems to be drone strikes — a tactic notorious for creating massive collateral damage of innocent civilians, generally creating more backlash against the United States. In other words, Obama is always either directly supporting Islamic groups or “accidentally” increasing their numbers.
Today, the White House hit a new low. A White House spokesman told flat joke when asked about the murder of and violence against Christians in Egypt. Of all the times to joke, the murder of hundreds of people being ignored by the Obama regime isn’t one of them.
The White House’s deputy press secretary today downplayed Muslim attacks on Christians in Egypt, joking about the savagery that has left at least six Christians dead.They refuse to mention the Muslim Brotherhood by name… but they continue to attack the Egyptian military. Playing favorites is a basic Obama strategy… and thousands of innocent people continue to suffer the consequences.
Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ correspondent, Ed Henry, if President Barack Obama has a “red line” beyond which he would act against Muslim attacks on Egyptian Christians.
“Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today,” Earnest joked.
After making his joke, Earnest said the administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and other marked Christian sites. Many Christians’ shops and homes have also been looted and burned by mobs.
But Earnest didn’t name or criticize the attackers, even though he did charge the military with perpetrating “violence… against peaceful protesters.”
