Identity politics seems to have reached its limit when Christians become victims.
In the wake of the Easter Sri Lanka church bombings by Islamic jihadists the tweets of condolences by high-ranking Democrats led by Barack Obama have given us a brief glimpse into their ideology and their psyches.
Rather than identify the targets of the bombing as Christians, as they clearly were, Barack Obama tweeted an offering of prayer to the “tourists” and “Easter worshippers” affected by the bombings. Hillary Clinton and many other prominent “Obama worshipers” quickly and dutifully followed suit tweeting out their response to the death of the followers of this new-found religion of “Easter worshiping.”
The word “Christians” must have stuck in their throats as they typed out their condolences. Rather than admit the obvious, that peaceful Christians were the victims and jihadist Muslims were the terrorists, these leading Leftists decided to rebrand an entire religion and in doing so revealed their own religious bias as “State worshipers.”
