The New Liberal 'Gotcha' Question for 2016

It’s the new gotcha question of the 2016 campaign: Would you attend the “gay wedding” of a friend or family member?

Republicans would rather talk about the economy or foreign policy, but wherever they go, many of the GOP presidential contenders find themselves asked whether they would go to such a ceremony. And Paul Kengor, a historian and author, says Republicans are setting themselves up for failure by falling for such a trap.

In an exclusive interview with WND, Kengor advised Republicans “to firmly respond that things like this have nothing whatsoever to do with being president, with cutting taxes and the deficit, with restoring economic growth, and with fighting ISIS. They have everything to do with liberal ‘journalists’ trying to corner and take down Republicans. I would tell the Republican to look the ‘journalist’ in the eye and say, ‘What you’re doing here is totally transparent. Your political bias is glowingly apparent. Stop it.’”

Kengor, author of the upcoming “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage,” acidly remarked, “Well, congratulations to the liberal media! They’ve got their new liberal-gotcha question for 2016.”

He added, “My favorite liberal-gotcha question always directed at Republicans is this one: Do Jews go to heaven? I warn Republicans to be ready for that one, too.”
