A top spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign mocked Catholics and evangelical Christians in a 2011 email exchange exposed by WikiLeaks this week.
According to Fox News:
“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.”
As blogger Matt Walsh writes in response:
“The media has buried every revelation to come out of the leaked emails. It’s really incredible. I’m not sure I’ve seen such a coordinated cover up effort by the media — at least since the Gosnell trial a few years ago.
That’s why it’s up to us to get this information out there. Share it. Tell people about it. And, for my money, what the Clinton camp said about Catholics and Evangelicals is one of the biggest and most under reported bombshells.
It’s not just that they called us “backwards” misogynists from the Middle Ages, but that they plotted to infiltrate the church and spark “revolution” from within. That’s some pretty nefarious, sinister stuff.
If nothing else, it proves that, despite her slogan, Hillary Clinton is not for all Americans. She is for a very specific sort of American, and those who do not fit that mold should be forced to change or pay the price. She does not intend to be a president for Christians, or orthodox members of any other faith, or conservatives. Nor will she be a president for the unborn, we should note.
In Hillary’s view, the only real Americans are those who have met her standards of physical and intellectual development. Anyone who falls outside of those requirements does not deserve respect, nor do we really deserve our constitutional rights. As far as she’s concerned, we’re modern day neanderthals. She’s not for us. And if — as will very likely be the case — she becomes president simply and solely because she had the great fortune of running against Donald Trump, we Christians ought to remember this fact.”
