SIDEBAR: A friend offers a link to where you yourself can dig through the Wikileaks archives of Hillary emails.
Just more of what Hillary and Co. think and feel about the American people and our First Amendment rights to free religion and thought…
(FOX News) – A top spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign mocked Catholics and evangelical Christians in a 2011 email exchange exposed by WikiLeaks this week.
In the exchange reported Tuesday night on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File”, Jennifer Palmieri, now the Clinton campaign’s director of communications, says that politically conservative Catholics “think [Roman Catholicism] is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”
Palmieri was responding to a message from John Halpin, a fellow at the liberal think tank Center for American Progress. Halpin remarked on a magazine article that discussed 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch’s decision to raise his children in the Catholic faith.
“Ken Auletta’s latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the [Wall Street Journal], are raising their kids Catholic,” Halpin wrote. “Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.”
“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” Halpin added. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
The exchange was included in a batch of Clinton adviser John Podesta’s hacked emails. Podesta was copied on the exchange between Palmieri and Halpin, but did not comment.
“This was thinly veiled religious bigotry, not only against conservative Catholics, but also against evangelicals,” former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File.”
“They mock deeply held beliefs. They mock the idea that two conservative Catholics would have their children baptized in the same river where John the Baptist baptized Jesus,” Rove added. “I mean, this is really amazing that they would mock them. What Christians wouldn’t consider it a blessing to be able to afford to baptize their children in the Jordan River? This is so insensitive … I’m gonna say that it’s insensitive, but it strikes me that it really borders on bigotry, religious bigotry.”
I doubt amid the multitude of emails we might find such bigoted and disparaging dialog regarding Muslims and Islam from the Hillary Clinton campers.
The fact is, the Clinton campaign’s, and the MSM’s, tactic of demonizing and mocking Trump himself hasn’t worked, so they are targeting supporters and voters with the old Alinsky tactic of shutting up dissent.
Meanwhile, Bill thinks we are “rednecks” and evidence of his collusion with the DOJ to avoid Hillary’s prosecution:
Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was nothing but the most elaborate and constructed out of thin air “celebrity politics”, and such continues today with Hillary. However, they are finding it really, REALLY difficult to put lipstick on ‘Annie Wilkes’, even when they drag out the slobbering and adoring Hollywood clowns to do struggle to dress her up by doing lame videos for her.
