Why Obama and Clinton Tweeted About ‘Easter Worshippers,’ Not Christians

Obama Clinton ChristiansSometimes, a few sentences tell you more about a person—and, more importantly, an ideology—than a learned thesis.

That is the case with tweets from Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama two days ago in response to the mass murder of more than 300 Christians and others in Sri Lanka.

Their tweets are worth serious analysis because they reveal a great deal about the left. Of course, they reveal a great deal about Clinton and Obama, too, but that doesn’t interest me.

And that, too, is important. Many Americans—especially conservatives and “independents”—are more interested in individual politicians than in political ideologies.

Many conservatives have long been fixated on Clinton—so much so that probably any other Democrat would have defeated Donald Trump, as conservative anger specifically toward her propelled many people to the polls.

Similarly, Republican Never-Trumpers are fixated on Trump rather than policy. They care more about Trump’s personal flaws than about the mortal dangers the left poses to America and the West or about the uniquely successful conservative policies Trump promulgates.

And independents all claim to vote “for the person, not the party.”

Only leftists understand that one must vote left no matter who the Democrat is, no matter who the Republican opponent is. Leftists are completely interchangeable: There is no ideological difference among the 20 or so Democrats running for president. Mayor Pete Buttigieg is not one degree to the right of Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren.

That is why it is important to understand Clinton and Obama’s tweets: to understand the left, not to understand her or him.

Here are the tweets:

Obama: “The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.”

Three hours later, Clinton tweeted: “On this holy weekend for many faiths, we must stand united against hatred and violence. I’m praying for everyone affected by today’s horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka.”

As they both spelled “worshipers” the same idiosyncratic way and used the term “Easter worshippers,” it is likely they either had the same writers or Clinton copied Obama.

Here’s what’s critical: Neither used the word “Christians.” And in order to avoid doing so, they went so far as to make up a new term—”Easter worshippers”—heretofore unknown to any Christian.

When Jews were murdered at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Clinton mentioned the synagogue in a tweet. But in her post-Sri Lanka tweet, despite the bombing of three churches filled with Christians, Clinton made no mention of church or churches.

In a tweet after the massacre of Muslims in New Zealand, she wrote that her heart broke for “the global Muslim community.” But in her latest tweet, not a word about Christians or the global Christian community.

Obama similarly wrote in his tweet about New Zealand that he was grieving with “the Muslim community” over the “horrible massacre in the Mosques.” But in his tweet about Sri Lanka, there is no mention of Christians or churches.

The reason neither of them mentioned Christians or churches is that the left has essentially forbidden mention of all the anti-Christian murders perpetrated by Muslims in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and of all the Muslim desecration of churches in Europe, Africa, and anywhere else.

This is part of the same phenomenon—that I and others have documented—of British police and politicians covering up six years of rape of 1,400 English girls by Muslim “grooming gangs” in Rotherham and elsewhere in England.

Essentially, the left’s rule is that nothing bad—no matter how true—may be said about Muslims or Islam and nothing good—no matter how true—may be said of Christians or Christianity.

Clinton’s post-New Zealand tweet also included these words: “We must continue to fight the perpetuation and normalization of Islamophobia and racism in all its forms. White supremacist terrorists must be condemned by leaders everywhere. Their murderous hatred must be stopped.”

She made sure to condemn “Islamophobia,” but she wrote not a word about the far more destructive and widespread hatred of Christians in the Muslim world, seen in Muslims’ virtual elimination of the Christian communities in the Middle East, the regular murder and kidnappings of Coptic Christians in Egypt, and the murder of Christians in Nigeria.

She calls on “leaders everywhere” to condemn “white supremacist terrorists,” one of the smallest hate groups on Earth, but never calls on leaders everywhere to condemn Islamist terrorists, the largest hate group on Earth.

These two tweets tell you a lot about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. But far more importantly, they tell you a lot about the left.

I’m sorry that so many people of Christian worldview would still support people with the leftist views on Christianity. Many of my own Church members are good people of color and some are definitely democratic supporters. They are never Trump, and two told me that Trump will send them back to Africa. I was shocked when they said that. I asked them “you really don’t believe that? ” They said they absolutely do. I can’t imagine how that much hatred of our God ordained President exists in such good folks.
I’ve had several chances to share with them all the good and great things about this Administration since. I’m impressed with how much attention to support the Christian worldviews in many ways that’s happening so far. Prayer is the best way to see change in the hearts and minds of the hatred the leftists push upon the masses. God changes our lives, and He can change others. Remember that Jesus Saves! John 3:16

The big problem is that the left either refuses to see or has been duped into believing they would be spared by an Islamic jihad or ourge if they are successful in their stated and written quest for world domination. All these Globalists and Socialists are foolish to believe they will be spared

Both Obama and Clinton mention “praying”, yet, as you note, never mention use the word “Christian”, which should obviously be the word used in association with Easter, the the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. To whom are they “praying?” While they use the word “praying” to appeal to Christians, they word their statement to make sure that they have a backdoor if anyone were to accuse them of being Christian.

And what is that? What, precisely, does it tell you?
The answer needs to be clearly, concisely, brutally stated.

, I picked up on them treating Christians like this long ago.. when Obama was president.. In fact, the only mention of Christians that Obama would make was to mock them. I still can remember at his first prayer breakfast where he referred to Christians in a mockery while rolling his eyes.

Indeed we are being destroyed from within. The exact methods set forth in The Communist Manifesto. The education system needed to be infiltrated; done. Begin to push for policy/law changes to remove things from public that instill moral character/integrity; done. Get 2nd and 3rd generation forward of college graduates into politics, local up to national; done. Begin to create situations to pit against each other – different races, different classes of people (financial) and ethnic groups, all to create chaos; done. With indoctrinated beings now in places of law-making, begin to create laws against racism, disparagement of groups, etc.; being done. It’s all text book; Obama followed the steps he learned from Alinsky. The card-carrying communists are still here, stronger than ever; they no longer carry cards identifying them as they had to back in the 50s-60s. They’ve quietly worked and are winning because of their methodical plan that we “never thought could happen here.” Well it has, and few recognize it much less come up with any way to stop/reverse it.

Clinton and Obama are morons, felons, and only care about themselves. Any American that believes otherwise is also a moron. Sorry but it’s true. They did note to destroy this great country than any other individuals dead or alive.

“As they both spelled “worshipers” the same idiosyncratic way and used the term “Easter worshippers,” it is likely they either had the same writers or Clinton copied Obama.“ That spelling is not idiosyncratic. It’s correct.

Nothing else to argue with in this piece.

seems like every morning the Democratic party sends out an email instructing their minions what to say and how exactly to say it every chance they get thus the exact same wordage from all of them.

Personally, I don’t think either one of them could honestly claim the title, “Christian”. I think Obama was and is, a Muslim at heart. Horrible Hillary is a Queen Hillary at heart, that is, her only god is herself, in her quest for power.

The AntiChrist has always been described as a multi-headed beast, so we imagined a sea monster. However, It appears that one of the heads is Islam, one of the heads is Liberalism, another is communist. Porn. Drugs. Anything that takes your focus away from God and Jesus is another head of the Beast. The false belief of Gender Identity, and other distractions that focus inward, not outward. HRC and BO are just two smaller heads of the same beast.
