I dropped in on Sean Hannity's show on Fox last night to discuss President Obama's Easter finger-wagging to Christians. Breitbart News reports on my reaction:
"148 young students in Kenya have just been killed, slaughtered, their bodies on the floor by Muslim fanatics who asked the students in that university, 'are you Christian or are you Muslim?' And they let the Muslims go, and they slaughtered the Christians. Now, this is a guy who's happy to draw general lessons when a black youth gets killed in Ferguson, Missouri. That apparently has wide application for black people all over America, but 148 black corpses has no general application. Well, Mr. President, #blacklivesmatter when they're Christian too. And the biggest story of our time is the extinction of some of the oldest Christian communities on the planet at hands of Islam, remorselessly. You dishonor those Kenyan students in death by not identifying them as Christians as you dishonored the Egyptians only a couple weeks earlier" Steyn stated.
You can see the video here.
The excitable pajama boys at George Soros' Media Matters also noted my remarks:
Mark Steyn On Obama's Easter Speech: "I Don't Think In Any Sense He Is A Christian"
As usual with the left, they think your words are so self-evidently appalling that simply stating them is enough. As one Media Matters commenter gloats:
Mark Steyn had better get more writing and TV gigs so he can pay damages to Penn State Climate Science Professor Michael Mann.
Or maybe run back to Canada for more of that free health care he doesn't want you to have.
After Mann's taken the hockey stick to me in the back alley?
By the way, Sean was kind enough to describe me last night as "the author of Climate Change: The Facts", which is very flattering, but not strictly true: I'm only one of a couple of dozen authors, including some of the most eminent scientists on the planet. The book is the antidote to Mann and his devoted followers, and it's available in paperback from the SteynOnline bookstore, where I'll be happy to autograph it personally to you or to the Media Matters climate cultist in your family! But, if you can't wait that long and you need it within the next five minutes it can be yours in eBook via Kindle, Nook or Kobo. (If you're in Portland, Oregon, my co-author Christopher Essex will be talking about the book this Monday on The Georgene Rice Show at 93.9 KDPQ.)
Newshounds, the poor man's Media Matters, didn't like my critique of Obama, either, especially this part:
STEYN: I don't think in any sense he is a Christian, Sean. I think he's a social justice warrior who, like a lot of people from the cultural left, regards religion as the opiate of the rubes, to modify Marx. But I think in Obama's case, it's compounded by the fact that he does have this profound respect for Islam that leads him actually to invert the situation that's going on in the world today so that the Christians are the problem and the Muslims who are beheading the Christians and shooting the Christians and cutting the throats of the Christians are somehow the victim group that we all need to be more sensitive to.
