Liberals Accusing This Senator Of Praying For Obama’s DEATH – Here’s His Response [VIDEO]

There are few things so joyless as modern liberals. Offended by everything and seething with hatred for dissenters, the left jumps at every opportunity to create division in America. When a Republican senator made a light jab at Obama and rejoiced at the notion that he would soon leave office, the left went nuts and claimed that it was a death threat. Now, the senator is fighting back.


From Western Journalism:

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., attempted to use a bit of political/biblical humor in his speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road To The Majority conference in Washington.

“You know, I think we are called to pray,” Perdue said. “I think we are called to pray for our country, for our leaders, and yes, even our president. You know, in his role as president, I think we should pray for Barack Obama.”

Then he added, “But I think we need to be very specific about how we pray. We should pray like Psalms 109:8 says. It says, ‘Let his days be few, and let another have his office.’”

The joke got a few laughs — but also drew the ire and consternation of critics on the left and on social media.

Many media outlets and critics took his comment to be a prayer for the president’s death. The Daily Beast’s title for the story is, “GOP Senator David Perdue Jokes About Praying for Obama’s Death.” Raw Story ran the title, “Georgia Senator Prays for Obama’s Death at Christian Gathering: ‘Let His Days Be Few.’”

But the senator fired back at those who said he was calling for Obama’s demise.

A Perdue spokeswoman told the Washington Examiner, “Sen. Perdue said we are called to pray for our country, for our leaders, and for our president. He in no way wishes harm towards our president and everyone in the room understood that. However, we should add the media to our prayer list because they are pushing a narrative to create controversy and that is exactly what the American people are tired of.”

But many on social media saw things differently. One tweeter declared that Senate Republicans and Christians are “morally reprehensible” and “vile.”

According to Politico, Perdue was asked in an interview if he regretted his comments. “It was a little humor and I said it in a way that we were talking about his days as president,” he said. “So I said ‘May his days be few,’ and that’s a direct quote from the Scripture. And I set it up by saying, in relation to his being in the office of the presidency.”

“The way we set it up was to make sure that it [misinterpretation] wasn’t the case,” Perdue continued. “There was no intention to be derogatory at all. It was a little humor.”

These people need to grow up and get a grip. This is the kind of hyper-partisan BS that is ripping this country apart on all cultural levels.
