Newsweek’s Evan Thomas: Obama Is ‘Sort of God’
NewsBusters ^ | 6/5/2009 | Kyle Drennen

Posted on 06/05/2009 4:26:44 PM PDT by james500

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God."

Thomas, appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews, was reacting to a preceding monologue in which Matthews praised Obama’s speech: "I think the President's speech yesterday was the reason we Americans elected him. It was grand. It was positive. Hopeful...But what I liked about the President's speech in Cairo was that it showed a complete humility...The question now is whether the President we elected and spoke for us so grandly yesterday can carry out the great vision he gave us and to the world."

Thomas has gone stark raving mad ~ before, and this time too.

Gotta' be a circulation problem of a most serious nature.

Top that one, Brian Williams. "Okay, well, he's better than God, you know, a bazillion times better, I mean he's a kind of super mega-God..."

These people aren't even embarrassed by this sycophancy. They'll be calling him Dear Leader next without the slightest sense of irony.

Sick, depraved, idol worship begotten of a strong delusion.

Cult of personality is alive and well with the left. Since they don’t believe in God, the desire to elevate a human to such status is strong.

It’s always been an elite staple: elevate a leader from the cult of socialist realism to lead the proletariat masses.

OBEY

Then I'm sure you'll support me when I say that "separation of church and state" demands that he be removed from office.

God is God. it's only when you deny His existence that mortals grasp for these false substitutes. And that goes to the whole point of Christianity, at least on a functional level. If the "here and now" is all that there is, then anything goes, and nothing is wrong or immoral.

If there is no God, then there is no reason to lead a moral life.

He is their God. They deify him, much like the Roman emperors were “Gods”. The difference is that they waited until the Emperors were dead first.

Even Thomas: He (B.O.) is going to say, ‘now, children, stop fighting and quarreling with each other.’ And he has a kind of a moral authority that he – he can – he can do that."

I believe that this consistent 'passivity' by B.O. is going to allow us to be hit 10,000 times worse than 9/11. Call them what they are Mr. Hussein; "Terrorists" don't give a damn about "Moral Authority". That was the most disgusting 'partial transcript' I've read in years. I actually feel sick to my stomach after reading it.

Just when you think it can’t get worse . . . This Obama worship by the media is just bizarre, completely bizarre. But guess who boycotted Obama’s Cairo speech? The leaders of the Egyptian pro-democracy movement. Why? Because they see Obama for what he is - a slick talker who will do nothing to further the cause of freedom in the Middle East.

And just as they finally got the "People's Temple" sign removed from the Chrstian Church where Jim Jones first set up shop in Indianapolis, we have Evan Thomas struggling to put on the demonic presence that precipitated that horrible journey.

Gotta' be connected ~ demon out of People's Temple, demon into Evan Thomas.

We are truly blessed that Obama is only an acolyte the Anti-Christ.

Further, I thought the left was all about separation of church and state.

How do you arrive at that conclusion? So far, Obama has shown no signs that he is an acolyte...he has shown himself to be supreme.

Even his bow to Adbullah was, symbolically, only a bow to Mecca...and to Obama himself.

Re: “Then again, who reads Newsweek?”

Agree — I remember when Time and Newsweek had ‘some’ substance to them, and some pages! Now when I see these Obamunist rags at market checkout I laugh because they don’t even have any ad copy inside! Who wants to advertise in a dead mag?

Why is he just an Acolyte and not the mistress herself?

Well, for one thing, there is this matter of his penis ~ however so small, that's what folks say it is.

He's also not very good at all in predicting the future ~ it's like he's blinded to the thought that his actions could have consequences. Several times he's just wandered off from major matters of state to "party". And then he dutifully reads his teleprompter even to the extent of "introducing himself" ~ which was totally bizarre.

He is an obedient follower.
