Watch: Susan Rice Wants To Cancel Secretary of State Pompeo Over Church…Imagine If They Said This About A Muslim
The former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice – the vanguard of Obamagate – wants to cancel Secretary of State Mike Pompeo because he’s “overtly religious.”
“Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic, because, again, he’s supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions, all of our threads,” she said in an interview on MSNBC.
Those on the Left have constantly criticized members of the Trump administration that are Christians. In 2017, Senator Bernie Sanders opposed the Office of Management and Budget nominee Russell Vought because he held Evangelical beliefs. Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris tore into a US District Court nominee over his involvement with a Catholic charitable organization.
The Constitution defends those that hold public office to the right to exercise their religious beliefs freely while they serve. It states, “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is very outspoken about his faith and during a speech he praised America for its “proud history of religious freedom” and the “success of nations when individuals are given their basic human dignity to practice their conscience, their faith, or to choose no faith if they so choose all around the world.”
Pompeo has also mentioned that Christianity is “not a popular conversation to raise in Washington, D.C.”
Rice’s attitude toward Pompeo is just another shining example over the double standard the left has toward religion.
Could you imagine if Susan Rice said that Rep. Ilhan Omar or Rep. Rashida Tlaib was overtly Muslim?
Rice would never get another TV gig again and rightly so.
What’s really got Rice upset is that the Trump administration has veered from Obama’s broken foreign policy and strung together peace accords in the Middle East. The only thing Obama ever did was give buckets of money to Iran.
