I can’t say I didn’t see this coming. With nothing in his track record to run on, Obama’s supporters are left with little ammunition short of bigoted comments against the religious beliefs of GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
It’s one thing when Trey Parker and Matt Stone deride the religion, since they’ve made it obvious no topic is off limits for their ridicule. The left, however, only tolerate criticism of approved targets. This election season, the LDS church is definitely one of those targets.
When conservatives dare criticize any of the tenents of “the religion of peace,” we are labeled by the left as intolerant and hateful. When Cher posts derogatory remarks against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and one of its members, Mitt Romney, the left applauds and promptly retweets them.
The singer began a twitter tirade this week against Romney, calling him in one post an “Uncaring Richy Rich” and suggesting a GOP victory would result in “The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR” (emphasis hers) in the White House. This crass reference to the Mormon doctrine concerning temple garments struck me as not only condescending and rude, but hypocritical. If anyone puts trust in magic underwear, it’s got to be Cher; she’s somehow made a living in hers for 50 years!
This was far from the first shots Cher has taken against Romeny via social media. Tweets sent by her account in May indicate she might be unable to “breathe [the] same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters.” She certainly does have a way with words.
If the LDS-bashing was coming from just this source, one might write it off as simply the rants of a washed-up pop star, but plenty of other liberal mouthpieces have joined in on the action.
Ever-offensive hack Bill Maher took to Twitter to call the LDS church a “cult,” suggesting Romney went overseas “trying to brow-beat Frenchmen into joining.”
Wrestler, actor, politician and athiest Jesse Ventura took the theme further in a recent interview, saying he doesn’t want “someone in the highest office that believes in magic underwear.”
As Obama and his surrogates get increasingly desperate, especially since they are now stuck defending an unpopular Obamacare tax. I expect to see even more of this religious bigotry from the left. When we merely suggest the radical, racist teachings of Jeremiah Wright don’t support the basic beliefs of mainstream Christianity, though, we are always the intolerant ones.
