Trump: “They go after Christian churches, but they don’t tend to go after mosques” 

OPINION

President Trump said what we all know to be true – the Democrats and the Mainstream Media are terrified of offending Muslims.

The folks at CNN and MSNBC and The New York Times relish the opportunity to attack Christians and Jews, but Muslims are off limits.

The propagandists in the Mainstream Media won’t explain why they give Muslims a pass. I have a personal thought about that – but it’s too explosive to share right now. I don’t have the stamina to deal with another blow up.

Anyway, I digress.

On Saturday, the White House Correspondent’s Association, also known as the Chinese Propagandists Association, confronted the president about a retweet on Twitter.

The original tweet read, “Let’s see if authorities enforce the social-distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan…like they did churches during Easter.”

It’s a terrific question in light of the outright hatred and condemnation directed at Christians who dared to worship on Easter Sunday.

The Chinese propagandist who brought up the tweet was trying to get the president to admit he is a closet Islamophobe.

President Trump quickly pounced – noting that the left has a strange aversion to our Lord and Savior.

“They go after Christian churches, but they don’t tend to go after mosques,” the president replied. “And I don’t want them to go after mosques, but I do want to see what their — what their bent is.”

The president’s remarks caused a good heads to explode in the White House briefing room. And by explode, I don’t mean to imply…oh, never mind.

Here’s the full dust-up between the reporter and the president:

REPORTER: Mr. President, I wanted to ask you about one of your retweets that you —

THE PRESIDENT: Which one?

REPORTER: The one you retweeted from Paul Sperry: “Let’s see if authorities enforce the social-distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan…like they did churches during Easter.”  I’m wondering —
 
THE PRESIDENT: Yeah — no, I would like to see that.  And, you know, I just spoke with leaders and people that love mosques; they love mosques, and I’m all in favor of that.  But I would say that there could be a difference.  And we’ll have to see what will happen, because I’ve seen a great disparity in this country.  I’ve seen a great disparity.

I mean, I’ve seen a very strong anti-Israel bent in Congress with Democrats.  It — it was unthinkable 7 or 8 or 10 years ago.  And now they’re into a whole different thing between Omar and AOC — I say AOC plus three.  Add them on.  You have — I mean, the things that they say about Israel are so bad.  And I — I can’t believe it.

REPORTER: But —

THE PRESIDENT: Now — just a minute.  So I would be interested to see that, because they go after Christian churches, but they don’t tend to go after mosques.  And I don’t want them to go after mosques, but I do want to see what their — what their bent is.

Yes, please, in the back.

REPORTER: (Inaudible) Mr. President, that, in fact, are you suggesting —

THE PRESIDENT: Go ahead, please.

REPORTER: that imams wouldn’t follow social distancing?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I — I think that — I just had a call imams.  I just had a call with ministers, rabbis.  We had a tremendous call with the faith leaders.  No, I don’t think that at all.

I am somebody that believes in faith.  And it matters not what your faith is, but our politicians seem to treat different faiths very differently.  And they seem to think — and I don’t know what happened with our country, but the Christian faith is treated much differently than it was.  And I think it’s treated very unfairly.
