No mess. No fuss.Lots of cutesy, glib Obama media floating into the collective consciousness. Its very effective, though it could ultimately backfire. There is that expression,attributed to Lincoln, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but you cannot fool all the people all the time” which in this campaign where there is a predominance of politics disguised as editorial content, entertainment, and politics as commodity in product placement, to be vary-wary of what we let into our sphere. “Forward”, “Obama’s Way”-Michael Lewis, are not far-removed from Soviet style aesthetics.
Another pretty slick piece of work from Team Obama is this hand “of sleight” campaign. Oddly, it came out on the Jewish high holidays, and on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur; it is a part of the service, one of the more intense sequences, where the participants beat, usually not too hard, their closed hand on their heart to atone for sins numerated in the liturgy. This below is a weird play on something; that the uploaders here have to mark and brand themselves does appear a bit odd, as it blends sanctity of allegiance with a sort of special interest, special request. Oh, and about these lobbyists and special interest groups that Obama promised would be banished to Sodom and Gommorah, Ninevah, as the candidate asserted in ’08; ah! then it was “Hope.” gotcha.
Stephen McRoberts:The Obama campaign recently asked its followers to write messages on their right hands and, with their hands pressed over their hearts, pledge their allegiance to Obama by posting these pictures on Twitter or Facebook. A number of celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Alba complied.
Of course, for those who are not part of the Obama cult, such actions, as well as the very request, are creepy. The act seems more an expression of quasi-religious adoration of and not just political support for Obama. But for one who has read the New Testament closely, the actions are much more ominous.
I recently taught the book of Revelation to a local church Sunday School. In Revelation 13:16-17, the Beast requires all to receive a mark on their foreheads or their right hands in order to buy and sell. The mark is the number of the beast, 666, based on the numerical value of the beast’s name.
Now, I do not consider Barack Obama to be the Beast of Revelation. Presumably, the Beast as the preternatural earthly embodiment of satanic evil would be more competent than the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But I do believe that by such a request — i.e., the demonstration of allegiance to Obama through the temporary and voluntary marking of the right hand, Obama and his administration betray their inner character.
Obama is not the Anti-Christ, by all means. But it becomes ever clearer that he and his administration are no friends of Christ or his Church and in fact are its implacable foes, even if they may pretend friendship.Read more: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/09/an_obama_revelation_supporters_marking_their_right_hands.html#ixzz289TLkvsS
