The Ol’ Dog Whistle Becomes An Air Raid Siren




Posted at 18:35 by Gavin M.

This week in infamy: The McCain campaign has apparently decided to spread the notion among Evangelicals that Barack Obama is the Antichrist.

I mean, not that we haven’t seen this before, but the production values are certainly improving.


Update: Hey, it looks like somebody needs to interview this guy for a timely newspaper trend piece. Amy Chozick? Your Pulitzer is calling:

    Barack is too thin, because he works out less frequently than Bush.
    Barack is the anti-christ, because he makes less frequent use of religious imagery and claims of being on a mission from God than Bush.
    Barack is the reason gas is so expensive, not the oilmen in the White House.

    Next claim; Obama caused Katrina.

    Holy fucking McShit.

    You know, I just assume that most people are rational and I tune a lot of the bullshit out, I don’t watch the Sunday talk shows because I have better things to do and treasure my sanity, and so forth.

    And then I come here, because S,N! crew does the yeoman’s work of plumbing the cesspool of slime that is the Recht-wing. While it doesn’t much surprise me that some dumbass who can’t upload a PowerPoint presentation is screeching that Obama is the AntiChrist, its a little shocking that the McCain camp would put out such a blatant dog-whistle on the same thesis. Just wow.

    And owlbear is right – if they want to hasten the coming of the Last Days, or the Rapture, or whatever, I’m pretty sure that they have to vote for Barack now. So we’ve got the insane evangelical vote locked up tight, right?

    Obama as Antichrist?
    Hmmm … seems to me those born-agains have a pretty strict criterion for just who gets to be “Lucifer’s Little Helper of the End Times Hoedown” &, um … well … Obama sure doesn’t look Jewish.

    But indeed, any Christian who buys this malarkey HAS to vote for him, as his ascension to power is an ESSENTIAL precursor to the J-Man doing his “I Came Again, Grab Another Bucket!” Reunion Tour – as is the rebuilding of a certain dilapidated Temple.

    Now if Obama were to suddenly get VERY passionate about trying to get the Knesset to put a rose-garden or parking-lot on said Temple site … I might not snicker so much.

    Gavin I don’t even want to know how you found that “presentation.”

    Obama is a democrat = statistic

    If and IF Obama gets elected presidency

    The number of letters in “Barack Hussein Obama” average out to 666.

    He has only daughters, ergo he could be the Antichrist. By that standard, I know of several people in my life who could be the Antichrist.

    I’ve seen these kind of comments on right wing blogs a lot: that Obama is evil, that he has mind control powers, etc….

    McCain is scum.

    But today we continued to hear on the Sunday shows that McCain doesn’t mean to be a racist bastard, he is really “above all that”, it is just his team behind him that is making him do this.

    What Would Happen if Barack Obama Became President of the United States?

    First, we will need to understand how it would “come to pass”that Barak Obama would achieve victory. So, let’s look at a few statistics:

    1. Is a Democrat.
    2. Although half white, he would only declare his black heritage (which he does today) to make himself “unique” as the 1st “black” president.
    3. Is competing against the Primary Democratic Candidate and the Primary Republican Candidate.
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
    How do you parody that?

    My other favorite has to be the sentence “If, and IF Obama gets elected Presidency, it would be the start of more prophecies mentioned in the bible.”

    And the Ad makes no sense either. Maybe I watched it wrong, but from where I’m sitting, it looked as though Obama just parted the Red Sea.

    If he’s The One, he’s ready to lead. Moses was ready to lead, Jesus was ready to lead, Neo was ready to lead. And even if he’s not ready to lead, you give him a chance. He’s teh freakin’ one!

    The area code of Chicago, is the number 60606
    (Gee, I wonder what is significant about that?)
    666

    Okay, so that’s one of Chicago’s many, many zip codes, but it does raise serious questions about Obama. For example, why would he choose to move to and make his political career in a place associated with such an evocative number?

    Oh, look. A blog called “Barack Obama the Antichirst?” I like the question mark at the end. Like the one at The Poorman Institute—the Best Book Ever?

    In the top post the blogger tries to address the issue raised above by owlbear1and Me.

    Your argument: If Barack is the Antichrist(or beast etc) then why would you tell people not to vote for him? There is nothing we can do about it.

    Answer: You are right, there is nothing we can about it voting against him if he is the Antichrist, and yes that would mean Jesus is on his way. However, if Barack is just some guy, then he is clearly full of himself, and I don’t think he would be a good leader, and I don’t agree with his policies. I am not saying I am a big Mccain fan either.

    And don’t miss the poll! I voted “maybe.”

    Obviously, the strategy is to drive voters away from Obama, to provide specious/scurrilous reasons for folks NOT to vote for him. They’re not really worried about wooing voters away. The Pukes just want folks to have reason/doubts enough to stay home…They already got the 27%ers, but that’s pretty close to 40 % of the electorate…If they can keep turnout down, it’s unquestonably to their benefit…

    You want something to worry about all day the rest of your weekend?

    Gordon Prather has a piece up at anti-war dot com today discussing the following scenario.

    After Obama takes office, israel attacks Iran’s various nuclear program installations including the reactor and the enrichment facility at Natanz. Of course, they cannot deliver a knockout blow to the Iranian nuclear program, so then they tell Obama that the US needs to finish it or the israelis will have to do so with their nukes.

    What does president Obama do?

    mikey

  41. Hoosier X said,

    August 3, 2008 at 21:10

    mikey,

    I can think of two things much scarier than that scenario:

    1. Bush is still in office.

    2. McCain has just taken office.

  42. mikey said,

    August 3, 2008 at 21:18

    Yeah, that’s for sure.

    But it’s not really an interesting question, ’cause we know the answer in that case.

    In fact, the israelis would probably handle it much differently, informing the white house that the strike package was inbound and the bombs would start falling in seventy five minutes and for the US to get it’s radars powered up and it’s fighters in the air. And the US would sigh, shake it’s collective head, say “oh well, here we go” and launch.

    Interestingly, one of the major overlooked lessons in all this is the power a small, belligerent nation can have over a powerful patron. Its very much worth thinking about in our rush to invite eastern eurpopean nations into NATO. As members, they know the alliance is obligated to defend them, which might make them much more reckless in their local affairs. The tiny tail can force the dog into a way it doesn’t want, and perhaps may not even be able to win…

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. I’m old enough to remember the rumors that Ronald Wilson Reagan was the Antichrist, because there were six letters in each of his names.

    But isn’t the Antichrist suppose to come after God has snatched all those fundies up to heaven and safely out of the way of the Tribulation? Fuckers never have been able to keep their stories straight.

  45. His Grace said,

    August 3, 2008 at 21:51

    Personally mikey, I think the most likely time for a strike is November 3rd to January 20th (in the likely event of an Obama victory). The idea would be to tie Obama’s hands before becoming president. If he is President, then, well, theoretically he can work against them diplomatically, or do something unexpected. A full blown shooting war on the other hand is harder to extract oneself from. And I’m not sure if Israel has the capacity to strike Iran with aircraft without refuelling sites.

    But yeah, given Israel is fairly good at hiding it’s military capabilities (Lebanon being a rare exception), I’ll accept the premise as possible. In that case, President Obama has three options:

    1) Call the Israelis bluff, which works if they are bluffing or can’t maintain domestic political support for a first nuclear strike.

    2) Use hard diplomacy against the Israelis, seeing as there would be few countries willing to support a nuclear first strike on Tehran and hope cooler heads will prevail. This presupposes he can maintain domestic support against war. Seeing as oil prices would skyrocket (as well as the running sore in Iraq), this may not be as unfeasible as it used to.

    3) Join in in the hopes of a quick effortless regime change that would result in the diplomatic recognition of Israel and transformative change in the Middle East.

    Obama was born in Hawaii. Obama has five Jewish advisors (two horns per Jew). Hussein is seven letters.

    13:2 The beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

    Obama is a fast runner. Obama has large feet (and hands). Obama roars to crowds. Hillary Clinton, DRAGON LADY OR DIPLOMAT?

    13:3 One of his heads looked like it had been wounded fatally. His fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled at the beast.

    I think this speaks for itself.

    Israel can surge 1000-1500 strike sorties in the first 24. Unquestioned. They have the tanker capacity. They have the appropriate weapons in inventory. They WOULD have to violate somebody’s airspace – Syria, of course, then Turkey or Iraq. If they wanted to try to protect the US, they’d overfly Turkey. If the intention was to force the US’s hand, they’d overfly Iraq and the US would be automatically complicit.

    What the Israelis DON’T have is the strike capacity to actually do more than fairly minor damage to the Iranians installations. The Iranians KNOW about Osirak. They KNOW this was a likelihood. They have widely dispersed, hardened and defended their facilities. Just knowing where they are isn’t good enough anymore.

    So after the first 72 hours or so, Israeli strikes will have to be seriously curtailed. Plus, by that time they will be under a lot of domestic pressure to stop the Iranian missile strikes against their cities. So they will need US support both to defend against Iranian retaliation and to try to finish the job on the nuclear program.

    The way things are today, Israel is the sole arbiter of the role of the US military in the persian gulf. They, not us, get to decide if there is to be war, and when it starts.

    Not a good position for a “super power” to find itself in…

  50. El Cid said,

    August 3, 2008 at 22:18

    Of course, it’s entirely possible that Israelis planning a potential attack know there’s a limited chance of taking out all the hardened / hidden nuclear facilities, but that means assuming that their publicly announced goals are, in fact, their goals.

    If, on the other hand, what they wish to do is set Iran back rather than simply setting back Iran’s nuclear program, then they have all the chance in the world to succeed.

    And they know the journos and pundits will all concentrate on Iran’s nuclear program while Israel severely damages much of the infrastructure of one of its major regional competitors.

  51. His Grace said,

    August 3, 2008 at 22:19

    mikey I’m not exactly disagreeing with you. In fact

    They, not us, get to decide if there is to be war, and when it starts.

    pretty much echoes my thoughts. And no, it isn’t a good position for a “super power” to find itself in. I’m just saying that the choice to escalate would be Obama’s and whether or not that would happen (or would be necessary) would be due to domestic (both Israeli and American) and international politics.

    In such a case, it is far too easy to lose control of the situation. Whether the Israelis realize such, I cannot say. Far too many wars have been started in human history by powers failing to realize how unwilling “teh enemy” was to “back down.”

  53. mikey said,

    August 3, 2008 at 22:29

    El Cid very rightly points out that there are a number of competing and complimentary agendas in play here. Unfortunately, very few advocates for peaceful coexistence have a seat at the table.

    His Grace also gets to the center of the tootsie pop. The point of the entire exercise is to try to predict Obama’s independence and commitment. Because he as much as ANYONE knows that once this horse is out of the barn, the whole damn town burns down. But if Israel launches and the retaliation against israel, the US in iraq and possibly other gulf states is fast, widespread, bloody and picking up steam, there will of course be a strong outcry domestically for the US to kick some goddam persian ass.

    And it will be very hard for any US president to take the smart course, not the emotionally advocated one. You kind of have to wonder if the cuban missile crisis was today, with 24hour news coverage, would Kennedy have had the breathing room to NOT launch on the soviets?

    I thought Hagee said the anti-Christ would be a Jew? Are they now saying Obama is a Jew too? Wow no more secret Muslim? I think they are stepping off the edge here, but the right has always thrived in a reality free world of lying douche-baggory.

    So if Obama really is the Antichrist, then isn’t imperative that he be elected to, you know, fulfill the prophecy?

    Please. You must think as a wingnut. A secret Muslim can easily be a Jew – it’s your flight from reality.

    Remember his teenage flirtation with Zoroastrianism?

    His collection of Buddhist porn?

    Actually, Hal Lindsey gets all technical on us. Obama isn’t actually the Antichrist, but he is preparing the way for him.

    His column making this crucial distinction is here:

    McCain’s ads make Obama look even better than Obama’s ads. Is this some new double back flip with a triple axle Rovian mindfuck? Is the idea to build up Obama in people’s minds until his reality has to disappoint? ‘Cause in this ad and in the “celebrity” ad, Obama looks smooth, smart and in charge. Let’s see McCain morph into any Biblical character other than Methusela.

    Well duh. To the modern PMD, Anti-war = Antichrist. Non-warmongering minds are the devil’s workshop, yanno.

    Hal Lindsey has long been saying that “everything has been coming together.” He has in mind the Hal Lindsey ex-wives club since he’s had 4 wives and 3 divorces!

    “I got better” and “It was only a flesh wound” come to mind, but really the Beast is just the Gnostic Nicolaitans, and the Elect are just the members of an ascetic Christian sect that isn’t around anymore, probably because they were all celibate and had a tough time recruiting. Interestingly, neither of those groups really “won” their “battle”, which was nothing compared to the Protestant Reformation. Heck, it wasn’t even as big as the Reformed Baptist Church of God reformation of 1915 (those heretic scum).

    When are these people going to figure out that they ain’t gonna *know* the antichrist when he arrives?? (If he arrives, which is doubtful…) How many times have they pointed at someone and said, Oh! Oh! It’s the antichrist!” Can we even begin to count? Reagan, Hitler, Manson… The list is really extensive, actually. How many Popes have been called the antichrist?

    I’m certifiable – I mean, I’m manic depressive, so, I’m a certified, mild-case nut job. But these people make me look like the world leader of calm, sane and rational thought…

    Someone get that guy on some meds, please!!
