Whoa. MSNBC must have lost its mind today when author/guest compared President Obama’s encroachment of religious liberty to the first steps taken by the Nazis in Germany.
Something tells me that this is the last time “Bonhoeffer” author Eric Metaxas gets on the air on MSNBC. Especially because the truth hurts.
“I met the president. I gave him a copy of my book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which he said he’s going to read,” Metaxas said during the interview. “In that book, you read about what happened to an amazingly great country called Germany…”
“In the beginning, it always starts really, really small. We need to understand as Americans — if we do not see this as a bright line in the sand — if you’re not a Catholic, if you use contraception — doesn’t matter. Because eventually, this kind of government overreach will affect you.”
Check out the vid. Poor Chris Jansing was so shocked that I believe it melted her brain because she doesn’t really react in shock.
But what does she ask about when she’s told the Obama administration is following the example of Nazis? She asks how Democrats acting like Nazis may hand Republicans a political issue. Because that’s the important question.
