Here is the tweet again, with Karen Swallow Prior’s response:
We covered this here.
Metaxas says most people on Twitter are “not that smart” and thus did not understand what he was trying to accomplish with this tweet. No–I think what you wrote is pretty clear, Eric. Even us idiots and stupid people got the message.
Metaxas thinks that George Soros might be paying his Twitter critics. When it doubt, reference Soros. Stay consistent with the brand.
Notice what he does here. He says he wishes he never published this tweet. Why? Because he should have anticipated unfair attacks on him from the “woke maniacs.” And then he apologies to “those people” who he may have legitimately offended–the people who are not part of the “woke mob.” He also references my (and Prior’s) “Twitter blackface” comment and then deflects to Ralph Northam and Justin Trudeau. Finally, the guy who spends most of his shows ripping into anyone who does not support Donald Trump, says we need more “grace.”
Eric Metaxas is always the victim.
By the way, on today’s show, Metaxas and his guest defended this.
