Do you have any deeply religious friends? If so, have you noticed that some of them have been driven close to the point of insanity by Obama’s victory? They will say things about Obama that seem far removed from the confines of rational thought. They may also be stocking up on guns.
In the public sphere, Rush Limbaugh is one person who displays this insanity. For example:
The Obama recession is in full swing, ladies and gentlemen. Stocks are dying, which is a precursor of things to come. This is an Obama recession. Might turn into a depression. He hasn’t done anything yet but his ideas are killing the economy. His ideas are killing Wall Street….
He hasn’t even passed anything yet. The truth about this is, the markets work six to nine months ahead. Everybody in the market is trying to figure out where we’re going to be six to nine months ahead. They’re selling and they’re getting out. That 4,000-point drop, that was also due to Obama.
Blaming the 4,000 point drop in the stock market on Obama is a sign of insanity. Calling it the “Obama recession” is insanity. Obama isn’t even in office yet.
Here is a republican congressman:
Look at some of the statements made in this article:
– A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship.
– Broun said he also believes Obama likely will move to ban gun ownership if he does build a national police force.
– “We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun said. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential.”
These are prominent people. They are speaking in public. They say things that sound, well, insane.
McClain said this unease is fueled by charges â€” some leveled by the McCain/Palin campaign directly and others that circulated on the Internet â€” that Obama, who is Christian, is a Muslim, has ties to terrorists and is insufficiently patriotic.
â€œIt makes people uneasy about the future of our free country,â€ he said, â€œmyself included.â€
Why does Obama cause such incredible angst for Christians? Anyone know?
