RightWingWatch Attacks Alan Keyes and Themselves
RightWingWatch is a frothing-at-the-mouth liberal protectionist organization so it’s no suprise that they attacked Alan Keyes for his comments to Newsmax. It’s also no surprise that they stupidly proved his concerns in the same comment.
Take, for example, Alan Keyes, who told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday that he does not believe that the shooting was racially motivated but was actually an incident of pro-gay, anti-Christian violence. Keyes, a Republican politician and conservative activist, said that he has personally experienced more animosity due to his religious beliefs than to his race, so concluded that the massacre must have been caused by religious hostility and thus is the latest example of the supposed “persecution” of Christians in America.
Keyes’ comments are questionable considering the symbolism and statements issued by Dylann Storm Roof during the attack, but one major statement that RWW tries to refute is that Keyes has felt more animosity due to his religious beliefs than due to his race. RightWingWatch is proving his point.
While Keyes’ makes a controversial, and at this time unproven, point, RWW attacked him because of his account of religious persecution. Just as I am unable to understand the oppression that a black man might feel during his life, RWW has no ability to understand if Keyes’ did or did not feel oppressed due to his religious beliefs. Christians are increasingly being castigated for their beliefs.
By saying that Keyes’ persecution is “supposed” means that they do not understand the pressure that Christians are under in today’s America.
Obama is hosting dinners where he invites anti-Isreali cohorts to his personal table:
President Barack Obama hosted two radical anti-Israel activists, Riham Osman and Batoul Abuharb of Houston, Texas, on Tuesday night. They both had the honor of sitting at Mr. Obama’s exclusive “President’s Table” at the annual White House Iftar dinner. Both have publicly stated that they consider Israel and its leadership to be sponsors of terroristic acts.
Michelle Obama told a group of mulsim girls at a London school “when I look out at all these young women, I see myself. In so many ways, your story is my story.”
When will the first lady be visiting an all-girls Christian school and sharing that same message. Will the President soon be offering his table to Christian or Jewish leaders? Maybe Keyes has more right than wrong on his comments.
The article seems to unapologetically claim that only affronts against race are important. Many identify on higher levels than the color of their skin.
