The Optics or the Coptics, Mr. President?

Written by John Kirkwood on August 22, 2013

A “Black” Church burns in the USA and the race-baiters of the mainstream media get all stoked up! They get to resurrect their Mississippi Burning script again. But dozens of “Black” Churches burn in Bill Kristol’s Arab Spring and the presstitutes want to talk about Bradley Manning’s sentence, Lindsay Lohan’s birthday and Will Smith’s divorce.

As a Christian and an American citizen, I am calling on the President of the United States to immediately offer asylum to the Christians in Egypt who are under extreme and life threatening duress! 

As Israel in the ’80’s and ’90’s accomplished in Operations Moses and Solomon with their airlifts of Ethiopian Jews from hostile areas; the Christians of the world are calling on you, Mr. President, to airlift this beleaguered minority before this becomes the first anti-Christian pogrom in Egypt in nearly 700 years.

Maybe you and the Mrs. could forego the next few vacations and divert a plane or two to the Coptic Christians who are being targeted? Maybe your dog could fly coach?

Maybe you can really take up arms in the war against women and make a call to one of your brothers in the Ummah – tell them to stop parading Nuns around in the streets like they’re Nazis at Nuremburg? Maybe you and your National Security staff could worry less about optics and more about Coptics? Maybe you could pretend this is a do over for Benghazi and actually act responsibly on this one?

Is it possible that instead of criticizing Kim and Kayne for their success you could criticize the Muslim Brotherhood for their excess? Maybe the dude that made the Joseph Kony video could make one about Egypt and then the press corps would have to ask, and your spokes-devil would have to answer? Maybe, for a change, your actions could match your soaring rhetoric?

Maybe you could act as an American President who professes to be a Christian and come to the aid of a real persecuted class? Maybe if you were told George Zimmerman was burning churches in Africa you would respond? Maybe if you had a son, he’d be a Coptic Christian who wore a hoody and drank “lean?” Maybe you can pretend the Muslim Brotherhood is Obamacare and you can grant the Coptics a waiver?

Maybe you could ask “What Would Jesus Do?” or in the very least, “What Would Putin Do?” Maybe the first lady could ease off the whole panty raid on our kids’ lunch boxes and ask the international community to help? Maybe your Secretary of State could take a sabbatical from his kite surfing marathon and make a few phone calls?

Maybe you could watch “Thirteen Days” or at least “Air Force One” and see how a President handles a crisis? Maybe you could pretend that the Coptic Christians were actually Syrian Rebels and send them arms and aid? Maybe you could pretend they were a Mexican drug cartel!
