Following in Joy Behar’s steps, an MSNBC host openly mocked economist Larry Kudlow after he spoke about his faith in the guidance of God.
Kudlow had announced he’d be leaving CNBC to be the director of the National Economic Council. He remarked that it was hard to leave his longtime position with the network but he believed in God’s plan.
“The last 25 years of my life has been tied up with CNBC, which changed my life, changed my profession, and it’s been a family to me, and, however this thing works out, it will be God’s will. If there’s an opportunity when my service is complete, I hope very much to come back and help CNBC. It is my family, and it has changed my life.”
Stephanie Ruhle and co-host Ali Velshi appeared on CNBC on Thursday to discuss economic policy. While criticizing Kudlow Ruhle turned to his faith, saying she considered it “interesting” for an economist to discuss such things.
“If you noticed when Larry Kudlow spoke on CNBC yesterday, he ended by saying, ‘However things work out, it will be God’s will,’” Ruhle said.
He failed to acknowledge her rude comments, laughing instead.
“That’s an interesting way to talk about being the national economic adviser to the president,” Ruhle added, frowning. “God’s will?”
Later, Ruhle once again included a snide remark about Kudlow’s faith that God has a plan.
“Well, as Larry Kudlow says, ‘It’s God’s will.”
The open mocking of faith – specifically Christian faith – as if it were some new development in American history is becoming disturbingly common in left-wing media circles.
Maybe we need to start reminding these people of all the times their Democrat demi-gods have invoked the name of God. If we can’t stop them from ridiculing the majority of the American population, at least we can demand they disperse that ridicule honestly and equally.
