"So what. Christians did it, too."
Problem is, the President is about as fluent in world history as he is in Constitutional law.
“I don’t think the president knows very much about the crusades,” Thomas Madden, a historian at the University of St. Louis, told ABC News.
“He seems to be casting them as an example of a distortion of Christianity and trying to compare that to what he sees as a distortion of Islam in the actions of ISIS,” Madden said. “The initial goal of the Crusades was to give back lands to Christians that been conquered, due to Muslim conquests.”
So say the history professors.
Especially this historian:
Share this. Educate others, since our president would prefer they remain ignorant of history.
