Buck Sexton slammed the mainstream media on ‘America Now’ Wednesday night, saying liberal lawmakers and the establishment press have a “difficult time connecting” with people of faith, yet bend-over backwards to defend Islam and Muslims.
“They are ok with a lot of hypocrisy from Democrats on the issue of God, public utterances of God, and the media in general has a really difficult time connecting with people of faith… unless it’s Islam,” said Buck.
“You’ll have everyone from President Obama, who would say that the future doesn’t belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam,” Sexton added. “Every pundit I could think of at CNN who all of a sudden, even the ones who have never been to a Muslim-majority country, don’t know the history of the Muslim world, don’t know a darn thing.”
“They’ll go on TV and they’ll be the ones saying, ‘The real concern here is Islamophobia, really worried about all this Islamophobia that’s coming out of this recent terrorist attack,’” said Buck.
“There’s a whole bunch of people that have made a career out of this […] They rush to defend Islam because it’s a religion that is associated with non-white, ethnic minorities; even though there are plenty of white Muslims around the world,” he added.
“It is a counter-weight to Christianity which the left is always excited about,” said Buck.
