Republican activists appear to be increasingly leaving behind oil, the economy, and the war as campaign issues in favor of a single campaign issue: Obama is the anti-Christ foretold in Revelations. Only recently, James Bramlett sent out an email warning that Satan was behind Obama’s success. Now, Dutchess County Republican Committee Chairwoman Corinne Weber has sent an email warning that Obama may not just be powered by the Anti-Christ, he may be the Anti-Christ himself. [Update: S.C. Mayor agrees that Obama may indeed be the Biblical Beast]
Dutchess County Republican Committee Chairwoman Corinne Weber sent the email on Friday night in disclosing her biblical/political research into the Book of Revelations. She states that the anti-Christ is clearly a man of Muslim descent in his 40 with massive appeal. Of course, Revelations was written long before the creation of Islam, but that does not seem to worry Weber.
Instead, she asks: “Do we recognize this description?”
She insists that, for her part: “I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere.” [Notably, thought Weber does not mention this fact, 666 road signs have been disappearing from New Jersey roads — an expected Obama state]
Of course, by her own definition, a person with mass appeal means that George Bush cannot possibly be the anti-christ. Yet, for some pushing the nation into an unparalleled economy crisis, saddling future generations with crippling debt, embroiling the nation into two endless wars, creating an official torture program, and enflaming the world against us would constitute more compelling evidence of a dark force.
Campaigns in Tehran have more substance this year. The nice thing about convincing religious fanatics on the right that this is about fighting the biblical beast is that there is no retort possible. Obama cannot “prove the negative” by showing that he is not the biblical beast since that is precisely what the biblical beast would do. Indeed, as he continues to rise in the polls, it is further evidence that he is evil. Besides, I already identified the biblical beast as Michael Eisner in a prior column.
With the other issues now off the table, the only room for campaigning left to the Obama camp is to run counter ads featuring John McCain’s own dark demonic origins. There does appear to be such a basis. McCain was born in Latin America, causing a controversy over his status as being “natural born.” However, the most serious problem is his resemblance to Itzcoliuhqui: the Aztec dark god. Called “the Twisted Obsidian One,” the God is viewed as ruler of darkness and destruction. Blinded when he was cast down from the heavens, Itzcoliuhqui strikes out randomly at his victims. Using Weber’s own research standard, ancient Aztec stone tablets indicate that Itzcoliuhqui will be a graduate from Annapolis and a senator from a warm state. It even mentions that Itzcoliuhqui is married to a woman who owns her own sacrificial temples in seven different places and adorns herself with gold.
I call upon McCain to prove that he is not Itzcoliuhqui. Otherwise, “I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere.”
