IN TWEET: 1 IN 4 AMERICANS THINK OBAMA IS OR MAY BE THE ANTICHRIST. FOLKS, WE HONESTLY DON’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
WELCOME TO THE QUICKIE, A NEW REGULAR FEATURE ON RONTHINK. THESE ARE STORIES SO BAT CRAP CRAZY THAT WASTING TOO MANY WORDS ON THEM WOULD BE A GRAMMAR FELONY. ALAS, TO NOT COMMENT WOULD ALSO BE A CRIME.
The 47%? That’s so 2012! The group we should be worrying about are the 25% who think President Obama is or might be the Antichrist. This is just one of the scarlarious findings in a new poll conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP). I’d be more inclined to dismiss the results were it not for the uncanny accuracy of the polling from PPP during the last Presidential election. That, and the fact that way too many of our fellow citizens are indeed certifiable lunatics.
This group of ass backwards wackadoos is made up of a loose coalition of Evangelicals, white supremacists, people with bunkers on the grounds of their heavily fortified compounds, whatever is left of that Tea Party train wreck and a good percentage of those still watching any show featuring Donald Trump.
They’re the birthers, the folks who think man and dinosaur roamed the earth together, climate change deniers and anyone with a signed box set of the LEFT BEHIND novels on their bookshelf.
Things weren’t helped any by the Mark Burnett/Roma Downey produced mini series THE BIBLE. This big budget mess (with the hot, ripped Jesus) was a huge hit for History Channel. It also featured an actor playing Satan who bore more than a passing resemblance to President Obama. Of course, everyone involved with the show thinks we’re the crazy ones for noticing any similarities. OK, say that’s true. Did they have to cast an actor from an African country as the most evil character in the Bible?
