Anti-Catholics & Elitist Bigots With Pat Buchanan

 It is not okay that a large body of self styled political leaders should treat Christianity as if it were politically incorrect and in the same breath excuse abhorrent Islamic behavior.  Who  are these people?  

Without question they will betray Latinos in the same way that they have betrayed Blacks and the poor for over two generations while consistently buying their vote with lies.

What i do challenge is our education system to tell us how we got here.  This happens to be absurd and profoundly anti intellectual and the rot exist among apparently educated people.

Anti-Catholics & Elitist Bigots 

By Patrick J. Buchanan 

Friday - October 14, 2016


Will Hillary Clinton clean out the nest of anti-Catholic bigots in her inner circle? Or is anti-Catholicism acceptable in her crowd?

In a 2011 email on which Clinton campaign chief John Podesta was copied, John Halpin, a fellow at the Center for American Progress that Podesta founded, trashed Rupert Murdoch for raising his kids in a misogynist religion.

The most "powerful elements" in the conservative movement are Catholic, railed Halpin: "It's an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backward gender relations..."

Clinton spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri agreed: "I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they become evangelical."

"Excellent point," replied Halpin. "They can throw around 'Thomistic' thought and 'subsidiarity' and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they are talking about."

What the pair is mocking here are both the faith decisions of the Murdoch family and traditional Catholic beliefs and social teaching.

This is a pristine example of the anti-Catholicism that historian Arthur Schlesinger Sr., called "the deepest-held bias in the history of the American people."

In another email in this latest document dump from WikiLeaks, writes Ben Wolfgang of The Washington Times, Podesta and Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress, mocked the Miss America pageant, because so many finalists are Southern girls and young women.

Said Podesta, "Do you think it's weird that of the 15 finalists in the Miss America, 10 came from the 11 states of the CSA?"

The CSA would be the Confederate States of America.

"Not at all," says Tanden, "I would imagine the only people who watch it are from the confederacy and by now they know that so they've rigged the thing in their honor."

In another email, Podesta himself uses the sort of language liberals once said disqualified Nixon from staying on as president — regarding former Governor Bill Richardson. Podesta refers to him and other Hispanics whom he is trying to court for Clinton as "needy Latinos."

What these emails reveal is the sneering contempt of liberal elites for Catholics, Evangelical Christians, Southerners, and even Hispanics loyal to them. And the contents of these emails correlate with the revealed bigotries of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

In September, Clinton told a gathering of rich contributors at a gay rights fundraiser in New York City:

"[Y]ou could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the 'basket of deplorables.' Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it."

Responding to the cheers and laughter, Clinton went on, "Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America."

What Clinton said to the LGBT partisans echoed what Obama told rich contributors in San Francisco in 2008, who wondered why he was not doing better in Pennsylvania.

"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and ... the jobs have been gone now for 25 years. ... And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Obama was saying that when small-town Pennsylvanians fall behind, they blame others and revert to their bibles, bigotries and guns.

Yet Obama has never explained what caused him to sit content for 20 years — and be married and have his daughters baptized — in the church of a ranting racist like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who, at the time of 9/11, roared from his pulpit "God Damn America!"

What so attracted Barack Obama to Rev. Wright's bigotry?

These latest emails confirm what we already knew.

Our elites, who are forever charging others with "racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia," are steeped in their own bigotries — toward Southerners, conservatives, Middle Americans, Evangelical Christians, and traditionalist Catholics — the "irredeemables."

Though the election is still a month off, the campaign of 2016 has already done irreparable damage to the American establishment.

Its roots in the nation it purports to lead have been attenuated if not severed. It has shown the world a portrait of American democracy at its apex that approaches the repellent.

Through the savagery of its attacks on those who have risen up against it, the establishment has stripped itself of all claim to be the moral leader of American society. Its moral authority is gone.

Even if Clinton wins, it can no longer credibly speak for America.

As for the national press corps — the Fourth Estate — it has been compromised, its credibility crippled, as some of the greatest of the press institutions have nakedly shilled for the regime candidate, while others have been exposed as propagandists or corrupt collaborators posturing as objective reporters.

What institution in America today, besides the military, enjoys national respect? And if people do not respect the regime, if they believe it acts in its own cold interest rather than the nation's, why should they respect or follow its leadership?

We have entered uncharted waters. 

Christian Leaders Decry Clinton Camp for 'Christophobic' Behavior

By Theodore Bunker | Thursday, 13 Oct 2016 01:16 PM


Hillary Clinton's campaign has received harsh criticism after leaked emails revealed "a contempt for all traditional Christians," according to a letter from Christian leaders.

"As Christian leaders, Catholic and Evangelical, we collectively express our outrage at the demeaning and troubling rhetoric used by those within Secretary Clinton's campaign — and those associated with the campaign — to describe our communities," the letter began.

The signers proceed to single out Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta, who was copied on the emails, for not taking action.

"Podesta's refusal to raise any objection makes him equally party to this bigotry. It is inexcusable. It is shameful. It is un-American.

"Historically, Evangelicals and Catholics have had significant theological differences, dating back to the Protestant Reformation. In spite of those differences there has been a mutual respect for one another and an ability to work together on important issues of mutual concern.

"The WikiLeaks emails reveal a contempt for all traditional Christians, and we are —Catholic and Evangelical — united in our outrage and united in our call for Mrs. Clinton to immediately apologize for the Christophobic behavior of her associates.

The letter is signed by dozens of leaders, including Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, N.C., Elaine Donnelly, writer and founder of the Center for Military Readiness, Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Jack Graham, president of the Southern Baptist Convention.

According to sociologists David Williamson and George Yancey, authors of "So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia in the United States," most anti-Christians are wealthy, well-educated, and white.

"The general image they have of Christians is that they are a backward, non-critical thinking, child-like people who do not like science and want to interfere with the lives of everyone else," Yancey told the Christian Post in an interview.

"But even worse, they see ordinary Christians as having been manipulated by evil Christian leaders and will vote in whatever way those leaders want," he continued. "They believe that those leaders are trying to set up a theocracy to force everybody to accept their Christian beliefs. So, for some with Christianophobia, this is a struggle for our society and our ability to move toward a progressive society. Christians are often seen as the great evil force that blocks our society from achieving this progressive paradise."
