The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Christians observe Easter, they don’t worship it. – If you’re a Democrat, it is suddenly not enough for you to do everything you can to marginalize those who practice Christian faith in our country and around the world. Now, you can’t even utter the word “Christian” in a public setting, even on a day when hundreds of Christians have been brutally murdered by radical Islamic terrorists.
That is the only clear takeaway from yesterday’s madness, a day when almost 300 Christians lost their lives on Easter Sunday, Christianity’s holiest of days. This all took place in Sri Lanka, where terrorists set off at least 8 explosive devices in Christian churches and other sites central to the Catholic faith in the country as worshippers gathered to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
But to hear leading Democrats tell the story, you’d have never known “Christians” were in any way involved. Somehow, the anti-Christian bias in the leftist community has now become so pervasive and radicalized that the various despicable faces of the Democrat Party dare not even utter the word, even in the face of mass murder.
To these people, “Christians” are no longer Christians, they have now become something called “Easter worshippers.” As if Easter is something they all “worship” rather than simply observe.
Don’t believe me? Here’s what Barack Hussein Obama his own self had to say about the tragedy:
The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 21, 2019
These victims weren’t Christians, you see – why, radical Islamic terrorists would never target Christians. No, these were mere “tourists” and “Easter worshippers.” Because of course they were.
Not to be outdone in the day’s exercise in Democrat diversion, the Pantsuit Princess chimed in with a tweet of her own, and it was, let us say, suspiciously similarly-worded to Obama’s. As in, they were probably written by the same talking points guru:
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.

There’s that phrase again: “Easter worshippers.”
Oh, hey, then Texas Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro felt the need to get in on the day’s parroting act:
On a day of redemption and hope, the evil of these attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers today are with the dead and injured, and their families. May we find grace.
— Julián Castro (@JulianCastro) April 21, 2019
Call me silly, but as a former Mayor of San Antonio, where Hispanic Catholics make up a huge portion of the population, I’m betting Mr. Castro is fairly familiar with the fact that Catholics and other Christians worship Jesus Christ, and merely observe Easter as a holy occasion. Why, odds are pretty good that Mr. Castro is himself at least nominally a person of the Catholic faith.
But wait, there’s more! Democrat after Democrat felt the need to weigh in with a parroting of Obama’s “Easter worshippers” sophistry – it became the day’s favorite leftist virtue signal on Twitter. Here’s a small sampling:
There is a lesson in all of this, and it is very clear: If you are a Christian and you vote for any Democrat, you are casting a suicidal vote.
This really is not complicated at all. Stop voting for people who want you and your faith to disappear.
That is all.
