President Obama has been gathering much-deserved criticism for his ridiculous comments at the National Prayer Breakfast, where he thoughtlessly compared the Islamic State to modern-day Christians for the simple reason that, you know, the Christians had the Crusades almost a millennium ago and stuff.
One of the loudest critics was Judge Jeanine Pirro, who used her Fox News show to lambast the president over his behavior at the prayer breakfast. Amongst other things, the FNC personality offered her own take on why the president felt so comfortable slandering Christianity.
“You know I’ve been watching this president for six years,” Pirro said. “And after this week’s prayer breakfast, it all came together. It finally made sense to me: Barack Obama is comfortable with extremism.
“He’s okay with it. He’s nonplussed. It’s part of what happens.” (H/T IJReview.)
She also said it would explained his reactions after a number of Islamic State attacks.
“It explains why he doesn’t attend certain funerals. Why he does nothing about the wholesale slaughter of Christians in the Middle East.
“Or the raping, beheading, crucifying and burying alive of children there. Why he doesn’t get excited about people who cross his ‘red lines.’ And it explains why he so easily pivots to healthcare after announcing the burning alive of a coalition pilot.”
The sad thing is that it’s become clear that Obama is comfortable with extremism. He allowed a group from the Muslim Brotherhood to visit the State Department and received support from domestic terrorist Bill Ayers in his campaigns for Illinois state office and the Senate.
It shouldn’t be surprising that he’s retained his taste for extremism during his time in the White House. What is surprising is that the American people seem to think it’s okay.
