The Left's Hatred of Mormons

The Re-elect Obama Press and the Democrats are trying mightily to convince citizens Conservatives and Evangelicals find Romney's religion a problem. Once again here's some journalistic malpractice. It's them, the Left that has the problem. The Left has a problem with religion in the first place, so have no problem attacking a particular church or religion with the exception of Islam; being Islamophobic they are afraid to criticize.

"Bloomberg Businessweek"  has a cover story mocking Mormons. Of course one would not see such a thing mocking Muslims. Since Leftists can't run on their record of failed banks, high unemployment, a shockingly high fatality rate of soldiers in Afghanistan since Obama took office, a $trillion a year increase in debt, increasing unemployment and homelessness, they have to attack Romney for his wealth and religion, and attack his wife.

Author of the cover story  Caroline Winter describing the church: "...sprawling church-owned corporate empire that the Mormon leadership says is helping spread its message, increasing economic self-reliance, and building the Kingdom of God on earth.” Not a surprising take by an anti-capitalist Leftist. This is a twofer. They can attack the financial success of both Romney and his church at the same time. She even gets an wealth zinger in about the Catholic Church too. No religious bigotry here, nothing to see, move on. 

Putting Republicans' religious beliefs front and center is A-okay! Remember their mockery of Bush saying his best adviser is Jesus Christ? During the Republican debates the Re-elect Obama Press made each of the candidates' religion an issue. Especially Santorum; what a nut he was. Of course Obama's attendance for twenty years at the anti-Christian racist church of Jeremiah Wright was, and is, still off limits.

Alleged film maker Spike Lee (most of his films are racist duds):  "I got faith that they won’t. Honestly, though, the big question is, I think there will be a block of people saying, 'I cannot vote for a Mormon'.  When asked about his support of Obama: I support him; my wife and I gave a benefit for him at our house. But I think this election is going to be close. Bottom line, there are many people in America who look at themselves and say, “Am I better now than I was before?” It is going to be tooth and nail, and I think it is going to get nasty. But, in my opinion, if they are trying to bring up Reverend Jeremiah Wright again, they are really reaching. I hope and pray that people are not going to go for the Willie Horton okeydoke."

Willie Horton? For those not around at the time, Horton was a murdering felon, and Gov. Dukakis had an open door policy, weekend furloughs for murderers and rapists and such. It became a campaign issue when George Bush I brought it up as a policy issue during his campaign. The Dems and their propaganda division the Jurassic Press excoriated Bush for bringing it up, but didn't say anything about the policy itself; Bush was a racist for bringing it up [yes, even then]. Horton committed rape and murder on one of his furloughs. I remember Gore or somebody, a Dem anyway, bringing it up before Bush ever did. That was not reported.

Spike Lee, a racist demanding an end to race discrimination has no problem lying about Mormons and a nonexistent issue citizens have with them. No poll shows a significant number of Conservatives or Evangelicals not voting for Romney because of his religion. Looks like he's for racial tolerance and respect, but not religious.
One last note on Mormonism. They are the only group in America to have an extermination order against them. Not even Blacks suffered that.
