Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) Issues No Apology to Libtards
What are the comments that have so many Libtards all fired up? Well, here they are as Todd Akin discusses NBC’s refusal to include “one nation under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance:
“Well, I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God. And so they’ve had a long history of not being at all favorable toward many of things that have been such a blessing to our country.”
Good for him! He’s absolutely correct. Although some libtards believe in God, the core ideology of liberalism is a hatred for God’s laws and a love of man’s law. Todd Akin has nothing to apologize for:
Akin comments draw criticism from religious leaders
BY JASON HANCOCK – St. Louis Post Dispatch
U.S. Rep. Todd Akin is catching flak from some Missouri religious leaders for saying last week that “at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God.”
Akin made the comments during a radio interview Friday with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. The two were discussing NBC’s decision to omit the phrase “under God” from a pre-taped clip of the Pledge of Allegiance aired during the network’s coverage of the U.S. Open.
The comments immediately made their way around the Internet after being picked up by a handful of national liberal websites. Faith Aloud, a St. Louis-based religious group that advocates for abortion rights, began an online petition drive calling on Akin to apologize.
Akin Communications Director Steve Taylor said the point Akin was trying to make was that there is a basic difference between the tenets of liberalism and conservatism. Conservatives believe rights are granted by God and it is the responsibility of government to aid in protecting them, Taylor said.
“Liberals believe rights are granted by government,” he said. “Congressman Akin believes those two concepts define the basic debate between the two ideologies.”
Akin’s comments were off the cuff, Taylor said, and with more time to articulate his point he could have “provided a more artful answer.” But he wasn’t talking about anyone’s individual relationship with God, Taylor said, only the “defining principles of two political ideologies.”
Here is Todd Akin on KMOX radio defending his comments and refusing to apologize to the whiny little libtards:
FYI – Todd Akin is running for the Senate in 2012. With his aforementioned comments along with showing steadfastness in the face of a liberal onslaught, he has just garnered my vote.Explore posts in the same categories: Liberals, politics
