In a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute last week, President Obama ad-libbed a key line from the Declaration of Independence but in the process left out the word “creator”.
If you look at President Obama’s prepared remarks before the speech was delivered, the Declaration of Independence line was not in there so clearly President Obama ad-libbed the line…and gets it wrong.
Conservative websites have been quick to pounce on this to possibly suggest that President Obama left the word “Creator” out on purpose.
And right she was, as Focus on the Family called it part of a “troubling trend,” while Rob Schenck sees it as further evidence that Obama is a “skeptical humanist universalist,” and Day Gardner sees it as proof that Obama is a secret Muslim because “no real Christian would do that.”
And, of course, Bryan Fischer declares it to be due to the incontrovertible fact that liberals hate the Declaration of Independence:
So the President of the United States quotes the Declaration of Independence but omits the references to the Creator with a capital C.
And this highlights something that I observed before; I observed it with Elena Kagan and that is a striking thing, but liberals in the United States of America hate the Declaration of Independence.
Liberals, and statists, and socialists, and Marxists, and communists, and the political class by and large hates the Declaration of Independence.
They hate the Declaration of Independence because it unapologetically affirms the existence of a Creator.
