Catholics latest target of Dem ire
Let’s play a little game. Here are a few recent public statements by Democrats and their media pals about Roman Catholics. Consider the reaction if they’d made the same comments about, say, Muslims.
“A bunch of racist (expletive) Catholic kids… Indian Country has dealt with enough (expletive) from racist Catholics.”
“I’m a New York Times reporter writing about #exposechristianschools.”
What if you ranted of Muslims, “I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents.”
Okay, all of the above vitriol was written by pampered pajama boys from, respectively, Buzzfeed, the Times and something called Vulture.
But what about U.S. senators, like Dianne Feinstein telling a Catholic judicial nominee that “the dogma lives loudly within you and that’s a concern.” And years earlier she had inquired of future SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts about “the role of Catholicism” in his future rulings.
Just a few weeks ago, Feinstein’s fellow Californian, presidential candidate Kamala Harris, asked yet another Catholic judicial nominee, “Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?”
In other words, do you now or have you ever espoused the bedrock tenets of your faith?
These people no longer even try to disguise their contempt for Roman Catholics. That’s one of the lessons of Covington Catholic. Their bigotry is just out there, in the open. The Democrats have certainly… evolved… since the 19th century, when they were dismissed after the Civil War as the party of “rum, Romanism and rebellion.”
Rum and rebellion are still okay, I guess, but Romanism is definitely verboten in the modern Democrat party. It’s become a synonym for… deplorable.
Last weekend at the Lincoln Memorial, the Covington kids’ MAGA hats may have triggered the Beautiful People, but soon the Democrats were taking a torch to an entire religion the same way they did with the Ursuline Convent in Charlestown in 1834.
Once more the Times was leading the mob of 21st-century Know-Nothings, attacking “the Northern Kentucky school off the Dixie Highway… overwhelmingly white, heavily Catholic and largely Republican.”
Imagine that – a school with Catholic in its name turns out to be “heavily Catholic.” And it’s on the Dixie Highway! What more do you need to know?
Like that recent Democrat/KKK icon Robert Byrd, the Times has always had this problem with Catholics. Just before he was assassinated, Bobby Kennedy griped that the Times’ idea of a good story about Catholicism would be headlined, “More Nuns Leave Church.”
During his 1960 campaign for president, Bobby’s brother JFK defended his faith in a speech to Protestant ministers, addressing prejudice head on: “Today I may be the victim but tomorrow it might be you.”
For the record, JFK was a member of the Knights of Columbus. What more does Kamala Harris need to know?
If you disdain Catholics, you rate a puff piece in the Times. The whole Lincoln Memorial confrontation was touched off by the “Hebrew Israelites,” a cult of crazy Westboro Baptist-like blacks who were heaping torrents of verbal abuse on those heavily Catholic Catholics from the Dixie Highway before the fake Vietnam veteran waded into the high-school crowd.
Among other things, the Hebrew Israelites slurred the Covington kids as “dirty-ass crackers… a bunch of incest babies.” They heckled a nearby clergyman as a “child-molesting faggot priest.”
And so the Times’ lead on their story about this charming group was, “They are sidewalk ministers who use confrontation as their gospel.”
Remember Hillary Clinton’s aides sneering about “medieval” Catholics in the Wikileaks emails of 2016? Remember Obama trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception, up to and including some forms of abortion? The nuns won in the Supreme Court, and the Trump administration granted them an exemption from the odious regulations.
So now 13 Democrat attorneys general are again suing in federal court to force the Little Sisters back into line. As always, Obama’s judges are the enforcers of the left, imposing one Democrat diktat after another on the bitter clingers in flyover country. Those uppity nuns must be taught a lesson. Political Correctness uber Alles.
Of course Catholics aren’t the only ones in the crosshairs of the ever-so-tolerant left. They hate evangelicals almost as much as Catholics – when news broke earlier this month that the vice president’s wife was teaching at a Christian school that actually espouses traditional Christian values, an anchor at CNN demanded that Karen Pence be stripped of her Secret Service protection.
More than 200 years ago, John Adams observed that “our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Which explains why the Democrats now shun Catholics and born-agains and anyone else who tries to live by any traditional western faith. They’re standing athwart Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America. So they must be destroyed, or at the very least shoved into the back of the bus.
