On the late night hype this week as a different approach and break from the norm, it was decided that this subject matter be addressed to see what type of response it receives.
Shankar Vedantam, a kick ass yet level headed journalist and scholar that I refer to frequently actually wrote an interesting piece on the subject last month for Slate Internet Magazine which opens the debate up for other sensible individuals to have a look at and listen to.
Is Obama the Antichrist?
Why we believe propaganda.
By Shankar Vedantam
Barack Hussein Obama has 18 letters in his name. That’s 6+6+6, or 666. Get it?
Substantial numbers of Americans believe Obama is the Antichrist. One survey in New Jersey found that as many as one in five people believe this theory. Similar numbers of people believe other crazy theories, including that Obama is a Muslim, a foreigner, and a socialist.
The entry really goes to town in regards to the reasons why we believe in propaganda, and how what is known as the hidden brain shapes information just as much as it (information) shapes us, and is one that I believe is well worth your attention.
As far as my own personal take in regards to such matters regarding the boogie man and every president except for Bill Clinton that has been called the Antichrist since Ronald Regan, I call it like this.
Above is an image of the artist currently known as the artist formerly known and known once again as Prince, who happens to be of African AmericanÂ Â decent similar to Barack Obama.
That would then officially classify him as The Prince Of Darkness, would it not?
Prince of Darkness is a term used in John Milton‘s poem Paradise Lost, published in 1667, referring to Satan who is viewed as the embodiment of evil. It is an English translation of the Latin phrase princeps tenebrarum, which occurs in the Acts of Pilate, written in the fourth century, in the 11th century hymn Rhythmus de die mortis by Pietro Damiani, and in a sermon by Bernard of Clairvaux from the 12th century.
In closing, if you’re scared, then why not just say so?
A different perspective to consider.
