Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee observed that President Barack Obama “conveniently just ignores it” when victims of a violent act, such as Thursday’s mass shooting at an Oregon community college, are Christian.
Multiple witnesses said that the Umpqua Community College shooter targeted Christians, shooting them in the head while shooting non-Christians in the leg.
In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg Friday, Malzberg asked Huckabee, “What if the shooter had said, ‘Are you a Muslim?’ And shot those in the head who were Muslim. Do you think the president would have mentioned that?”
There was no hesitation from Huckabee
“Of course he would,” he said. “The president always wants to be defensive and tell us there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism. These aren’t religious people even though we all know they are. But it seems when the target is a Christian he conveniently just ignores it, denies it or just moves on to something else. I do think that it is incredibly significant that there was a religious intent and motive in this shooter’s attitude.”
