I’ve been laughing ever since I heard about the uproar that was created over “the devil” in the History Channel The Bible miniseries looking like Barack Obama.
For the record, I’ve been watching – and enjoying – the programs. I saw “the devil” and – as much as I despise Barack Obama – it never occurred to me to see Obama in Satan.
I suppose the liberals who managed to do so are experiencing a guilty conscience.
The thing is that liberals are saying things like, “There are NO other black people in the whole show other than the devil! It’s racist!” And of course they claim that The Bible creators deliberately made “the devil” up to look like Obama.
Well, as usual, liberals are slanderers and liars. Yes, there ARE black characters in the movie. Samson, for example, was not only black, but he was TWICE as black as Obama. I was actually stunned when the liberal Bill O’Reilly had on his program to debate this topic at least TWICE falsely stated that there were no other “black” characters in the movie other than “the devil.” Just as I was stunned that O’Reilly was ignorant of the fact that the liberal woman was factually wrong in her slander of the movie series.
As for any resemblance between Obama and the devil, let me just say this: I was pointing out something to that effect back in December of 2011 –
And, of course, this will be an election between a Mormon who believes that he will one day be God (Mitt Romney) versus a man who already believes he is God (Barack Obama).
It will be an election between a Mormon who believes that Jesus Christ is the spirit brother of Lucifer and a man who actually IS the spirit brother of Lucifer.
It’s just beyond sad.
– and I hadn’t even HEARD that there was going to be a History Channel miniseries on “The Bible.”
I suppose I was just born ahead of my time, wasn’t I?
That having been said, I very seriously doubt that any “resemblance” between “the devil” and Obama was anything other than unintentional. For example, people are saying that “the devil” is black. He is NOT black; he’s a Moroccan actor named Mehdi Ouazzani. Nor did they actually make Ouazzani “black.” On my television screen, he is decidedly pale gray and ashen in tone rather than “black.” And that and all the facial features – such as “the devil’s” sunken cheeks – are much more in line with the devil being the source of plague and disease than they are with being Obama.
It’s kind of funny that liberals – again, apparently possessing the guilty consciences they ought to have – saw Satan in Obama. I wouldn’t have if they hadn’t thrown it into my face.
I submit that the producers of The Bible tried to make “the devil” look like the personification of diseased evil. How could they help it if that description ALSO matched Barack Obama???
Other than the fact that both Obama and the actual devil are a) evil and b) individuals who think they should sit above God, it’s the standard movie disclaimer: “Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead is purely coincidental.”
Whether Obama is a “real person” is much more debatable.
Liberals slandered The Bible miniseries trying to gin up a controversy to undermine God and undermine the actual Bible in addition to trying to undermine the miniseries. Judging by the enormous ratings the miniseries has received, the effort – rather like Obama’s sequestration demagoguing – apparently backfired big time.
Oh, oh, I just saw a whole new controversy. As I was watching the final episode of The Bible, I saw what I imagine will be a whole new reason for liberals to bitch. Saul “waterboarded” a man – who wouldn’t talk until after his “waterboarding” – into giving up the city of Damascus as being the city where the Christians were hiding. You know, just like the CIA waterboarded terrorists into giving up Abbatobad to find out where Osama bin Laden was hiding. Such a superficial “resemblance” is all the left needs to draw demagogic conclusions. I’m guessing liberals will be whining that these evil conservatives will stop at nothing.
