Someone needs a history lesson very badly. The Crusades were launched by Christians as a defensive measure against the same kind of radical, murdering, barbaric Islamists we’re fighting today. If not for the Catholic Church, Christendom would have been wiped off the map and Europe and the Middle East would look very different today.
Muhammad’s animals haven’t changed a bit in centuries. They still take over land and murder it’s inhabitants in their lust to spread Islam across the entire globe. Today isn’t really that different from the days of the Crusades in some ways. We just have jets and heavy weapons. But, we’re still fighting the same evil that Muhammad unleashed hundreds of years ago.
MSNBC’s resident socialist Lawrence O’Donnell made a whopper of a historical claim on the Thursday edition of his program. In the midst of ripping President Obama’s controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day, O’Donnell asserted that “Catholicism was the most murderous force on the face of the Earth for hundreds of years,” as he ripped President Obama’s controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day.
The left-wing host led the segment by mocking the breakfast as “the place where presidents go to pander to leaders of organized religions once a year.” He continued by slamming the Democrat’s address:
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: If you ever want to search for the worst speeches given by a modern president, begin with the National Prayer Breakfast – the first of which was attended by President Eisenhower in 1953. President Obama, who is the most gifted writer and speaker in the history of the American presidency, today delivered the worst speech of his presidency. It was full of hollow pandering from start to finish, as politicians’ speeches to religious groups always are.
The only pandering Obama did was to ISIS. They’ve long called us the crusaders, and Obama just handed them some juicy propaganda material by agreeing with them.
