It’s no secret that the left-leaning mainstream media has always been reluctant to address Islamic extremists who commit terrorism as ‘Islamic,’ but now some of the most high profile Democrats are refusing to even acknowledge that the victims of the recent Sri Lanka Easter attacks were in fact Christians.
Instead, they are calling them “Easter worshippers.”
Here’s what former President Barack Obama tweeted in the wake of the attacks.
“The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemptions, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.”

Not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton tweeted, “On this holy weekend for many faiths, we must stand united against hatred and violence. I’m praying for everyone affected by today’s horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka.”

Radio host Rush Limbaugh took issue with Obama and Clinton on his program Monday, “They’re supposedly Christians and they can’t even bring themselves to say slaughter of Christians. They have to say ‘Easter worshippers.”
Political analyst Sebastian Gorka contrasted Clinton’s reaction to the New Zealand mosque attack with the Sri Lanka terrorist bombings.
Compare and contrast.

Whose side is Hillary on? The same question should be asked of Obama.
The “Easter worshippers” who were attacked by Islamic extremists on Easter morning were targeted because they were Christians, plain and simple. This is a basic fact. It does not make you an ‘Islamophobe’ to point this out.
In fact, to be a credible journalist, you must point it out. Readers deserve the facts.
That Democrats as high profile and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can’t bring themselves to say “Christians” when describing the innocent victims of terrorism should tell you all you need to know about the modern Democratic Party.
If they can’t say it, what about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Bernie Sanders? Elizabeth Warren? Ilhan Omar?
The left keeps getting worse and worse. God help us.
