After a supporter for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested that President Obama may be a Muslim, the media has sensed an opening on destroying the credibility of other candidates by asking them to weigh in on the very same conversation.
Trump has been chastised for not correcting the supporter, as if it’s his duty to correct the thoughts of somebody in a crowd of people.
Most notably, Dr. Ben Carson has been taking heat for responding that he would not support a Muslim president.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal would have no part of the media’s game however, pointing out the absurd ‘gotcha game’ they’re playing with Republicans.
via The Daily Caller:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is chiding the media for “absurd hypothetical” questions to Republican presidential candidates about whether they could ever support a Muslim for president.
“This is a dumb game that the press is playing,” Jindal said in a Monday statement distributed to reporters. “It is an absurd hypothetical question.”
He then answered the question in a devastatingly clear manner.
Saying he will “indulge the media for a moment and play their gotcha game,” Jindal went on to say: “If you can find me a Muslim candidate who is a Republican, who will fight hard to protect religious liberty, who will respect the Judeo-Christian heritage of America, who will be committed to destroying ISIS and radical Islam, who will condemn cultures that treat women as second class citizens and who will place their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution, then yes, I will be happy to consider voting for him or her.”
“If you can’t,” Jindal said, “I’ll settle for voting for a Christian governor from Louisiana.”
That is how you explain to the media that conservatives are about morals and American values, not obsessed with religion or race like liberals in the media.
Will the media back off now that Jindal has explained that the conservative Republican platform is not, nor ever was, about religion or race, but is simply focused on American values?
