Mayor: Obama Purposely Blocked "Peanuts"
Associated Press ^ | Dec.5, 2009

Posted on 12/05/2009 12:36:37 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

(CBS/AP) A small town mayor is under fire for what he wrote about the President online.

Mayor Russell Wiseman of Arlington called President Obama a Muslim on his Facebook page, attacked Obama's supporters, and said the president's primetime address on Tuesday was a deliberate effort to block the airing of the Christian message of the cartoon "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

The Commercial Appeal reported Wiseman's comments, posted on his Facebook page, which included the claim that the president is Muslim.

Mr. Obama is Christian.

None of this is "news".

I managed to miss Obama's speech simply by changing the channel to something else that could keep me awake.

Did you guys realize how utterly boring this President has become. Not only is he totally predictable, he's repetitive.

We need a new Teleprompter, and quick.

So has AP been suckered into believing 0 is a Christian, or are they purposefully asserting he’s a Christian even though all evidence suggests otherwise?

Given that the AP’s definition of “Christian” (as opposed to “fundamentalist Christian”) is “someone who gestures towards theism but never comes close to opposing abortion or homosexuality,” probably both.

Has he even selected a DC church yet?

And if so, how often have they attended . . . if at all?

How does that compare to the Christian Bush family, for example?

"Not only is he totally predictable, he's repetitive. "

Ever heard of the "Chinese water torture"? Repetition is one of the age-old methods of indoctrination.

I read a book years about - forgot the title - but it dealt with using the 'broken record' technique to win arguments...the premise was to agree with your opponent, and then add the "but" factor repetitively until they crack.

The example I remember was someone trying to return an item to a store, it went something like this:

Clerk: "Sir, I can't give you a refund because you don't have a receipt."

Customer: "I realize I don't have a receipt, but I did buy it here, it's defective, and I want my money back."

Clerk: "Sir, we have a policy of not allowing refunds unless you have a receipt from our store."

Customer: "I realize you have your rules, but I did buy it here, it's defective, and I want my money back.".

Clerk: "I'm sorry sir, but I am not authorized to give you a refund without a receipt."

Customer: "I realize this puts you in an awkward spot, but I did buy it here, it's defective, and I want my money back." Perhaps I could speak with a manager."

Then do the whole thing over with the manager. I've used variations of this several times and it works pretty often as long as you keep your cool, keep smiling, and don't let up...they'll give you a refund just to get rid of you.

Back to the point: obama knows repetition works, it is the entire basis of human conditioning and learning. Repetition is the whole basis of the left's daily "talking points" You want to learn the piano...then get prepared for hours practice...practice=repetition.

Sean Hannity uses this technique...his responses to callers are totally predictable...he uses the same lines - the truth - but the same verbaige over and over...I guess he figures it works for the dems, so why not. Then again, some of the dems are so "dim", it takes over and over to get the point across, if ever.

The mistake the left makes is, they want to do the same thing over and over, and expect different results each time.

And for that reason I join you and millions of others, when the kenyans face shows up on the tube, I switch the channel to something more palatable...like...like..."Peanuts".

I mean, preempting "Peanuts"...that's the last straw...that's turning off and American Institution for a kenyan islamic ritual.

I think this claim that obama wanted to ‘block’ the Charlie Brown program because of it’s Christian conclusion is a stretch. A big stretch.

How many religious networks and programs are on t.v.? -Yet, he’s concerned about the Christian ‘propaganda’ of Charlie Brown? (which is available on dvd - most folks I know own the thing)

I think he's purposefully not finding a church, in the same way that he purposefully took (how many) months to come to a decision on Afghanistan.

Then again, how long did it take for him to make a decision on a dog? He may just be genuinely dim witted, taken advantage by those with an anti-American agenda - that he just happens to agree with.

If it were against the law to be a Christian, there would obviously not be enough evidence to convict Obama. It appears the good mayor made a valid point.

Based solely on personal experience I've never even heard of a marxist who wasn't an atheist, even if they pretended otherwise in public.

And if barack 0bama isn't a marxist then may I never get to post on Free Republic again. There. You can tell now I'm serious.

What Christian tears the Bible apart like this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXcvbnzNIjg

He also said, once, that the US is one of the largest Muslim countries in world.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHgXK_6fWLQ

Religions of the world - gee, obummer, look at this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Religion_distribution.png

and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_the_United_States

So America is 76% Christian to 1.5% Muslim.

His blatant statements to the contrary should tell people all they need to know about the truthfulness of this son of satan.

and he defends his stand on things like abortion on the fact that we have some people who believe in it- like atheists.

What happened to “Majority Rules”?

I remember at the inauguration, the religious person led everyone in the Our Father, and when they put the camera on 0, he was silent. Not even moving his lips. When has a POTUS not at least said the Our Father at a prayer service of any kind? That told me all I needed to know.
