White House spokesman jokes about Islamic attacks on Christian churches in Egypt
Daily Caller ^ | 8/21/13

Posted on 08/21/2013 3:27:43 PM PDT by Nachum

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.

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 protestors.”

Who expects proto-Muslims to criticize their fellow Muslims in Egypt? Buehler? Buehler?

O is a communist and Muslim Brotherhood. He is not going to lose sleep over the death of a Christian except as it can be spun to further the interests of communists and Muslim Brotherhood.

In a Republican administration, the howls for his head would reverberate to the moon. Case in point, the Virginia governor.

Why would anyone suppose that our Muslim president has any problems with his Muslim Brotherhood friends looting, raping, burning, and murdering Christians in Egypt?

He’d do the same in this country if he thought he could get away with it.

“Outrage” and “concern” should not appear in the same sentence. They are world’s apart. The fact they do appear in the same sentence tells me that they are just words with no meaning to the speaker.

My only problem with what the Virginia Governor said is that he didn’t include Christians with the people obastard hates.

Hey come on - if 6 black children were killed in Birmingham Alabama - I'm sure Josh Earnest would have made the same joke... it's funny - dead Christian jokes rock - lighten up. /s

That's what all the gun control is about .

That's what the immigration bill with entry quotas for a bunch of muslims is all about (the Mexicans are just cover for an invasion )

That's what Obamacare is all about - a tax on all NON MUSLIMS that encourages stupid young people who do not believe in anything to become a muslim to not have to pay it

No respect for life, God, or man --except for one man. Karl Marx. How bizarre is that?

Many Americans will not comply with any UN law or treaty. They will simply keep their guns.

When the top guy is outraged he shows it. He didn’t show any outrage over his buddies killing Christians and attacking churches because he favors it.

The stated purpose for the Crusades was just: it was no more "offensive" than the Allies landing at Normandy was offensive. Islam had forcibly occupied and subjugated 2/3 of historic Christendom, and the Christian Emperor (in Constantinople) had appealed to the Pope (in Rome) to mobilize the West and come to their rescue.

Their purpose was to support fellow Christians and to secure the holy places from destruction.

The First Crusade --- the only one out of seven which was reasonably successful --- did push back the Islamic aggressors and secure the Holy Places.

However, the way the warfare was conducted was often horrible. Great saints to who preached crusades (e.g. St Bernard of Clairvaux, who promoted the Second Crusade) came to regret it as they saw the senseless massacres mount; during the Fourth Crusade, the whole shootin' match was excommunicated by the Pope. Twice, I believe.

So you could say I heartily believe in Crusades in theory. But not in practice.
