AFL-CIO Official, Says Obama is as Effective as Christ Would Be
ChicoER ^ | 10/25/10 | Chuck Wolk

Posted on 10/25/2010 9:21:51 AM PDT by OneVike

Hosted by imgur.comAs the Unions begin their annual push to get the rank and file to the polls we now have evidence that Union Leaders are now telling their members they need to stand by Obama by voting to keep Congress in the hands of Democrats. After all, even Jesus Christ Himself could not do a better job than Obama has.  At least that's what  AFL-CIO official Herb Johnson has been telling the rank and file in Kansas City Mo. That's right. In an interview with an AP reporter, Mr Johnson actually equated Obama with Jesus Christ by saying Jesus could not have done a better job. I guess he is tired of hearing the members tell him they are either not going to vote, or that they plan on voting for Republicans.

Hosted by imgur.comUnions expect to spend about $100 million in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 2 election, targeting nearly 100 House races, 18 Senate seats 14 gubernatorial races. Between campaign walks, door knocks, mailings, phone calls and work site leafleting, union officials already have contacted about half of their approximately 17.5 million members nationwide.

But for the first time in many election seasons, the results of the effort are uncertain. The ambivalence -- or even opposition -- among some workers has Democratic candidates worried. The disaffection of middle class men, who represent a large part of the union workforce, is a major reason that Democrats are braced for potentially serious losses nationwide.

Many rank and file union members are telling those canvasing the neighborhoods, that they may have voted for Obama, but he has not followed through on his promises. They don't see the economic future of America getting any better, instead they see many states actually laying.....

On one hand the MSM and the leftist pundits accuse us on the right of making up stories about the way they worship Obama, then they turn around and prove us right time and time again by actually doing what we say they are doing.

Truth be told, e really is their messiah.

Article Ping!

For over two years we have been inundated with stories and videos of those on the left worshiping Obama. Now we even have a union official equating Obama with Jesus Christ. If they really want us to believe that Obama is equal to Christ, then I figure they can cancel the food stamp program because he should be able to feed everyone by turning stones into bread. .....

Christ manifested food out of thin air.

Obama steals it and gives it to his cronies.

The End.

I urge the unions to spend their $100 Million running ads saying Obama is better than Jesus Christ. That should help the Democrat Party a lot.

heh

Six foot two, he’s so true
Ain’t nuthin’ he can’t do
Has anybody seen my Lord?

He’s so kewl, he’s so fine
Changes water into wine

Walks so tall, walks so cool
He walked across my swimmin’ pool
Has anybody seen my Lord?

Well frack.

Obama just became the AntiChrist, the ape of God - at least in the mind of one deranged Union official.

And if one lefty said it, a thousand were thinking it.

"Sometimes you have to remind people that, 'Hey, Jesus Christ couldn't do anything more than President Obama has on the agenda we supported two years ago without the United States Senate having the votes for cloture to overcome a filibuster" by Republicans, said Herb Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the Missouri AFL-CIO.

Mr. Johnson, I know Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is my LORD and savior. That you would insinuate that Barack Obama is an equivalent with Him is beyond offensive.

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

So much for confiscation and redistribution of “the other guy’s stuff” being in ANY way biblical.

Those who stir up such feelings of greed and envy and class war among the “have nots” are sinners.

OK Barry, let’s do a little experiment: You take your 12 best PR or marketing guys and have them write down your words. Then send them out, supplied with nothing more than those handwriten texts and a pair of sandals to tell your message to the world... Who’ll be counted in your flock after 2000 years?

Before Obama was elected, I read a very disturbing psychology of one of his followers, who had been asked half in jest the question, “What if Obama actually *is* the Antichrist?”

After some thoughtful consideration, the Obama follower admitted that he thought that this would be a good thing. Obama being the Antichrist would mean that he was *powerful*, and this was equated in the mind of this follower to mean that Obama’s supporters would “get what they want”, but also that Obama would be able to destroy or at least savagely hurt his enemies.

In other words, the big picture, the horror, the consequences of supporting the Antichrist, meant nothing compared to the immediate gratification of cravings, and the infliction of pain and death on those the follower hated.

He imagined the cult of personality, the adoration of unbridled evil, as purposes in themselves. Gifts for the followers, to be able to adore something so powerful, so majestic. Thrilling emotional entertainment.

A book could be written about such an aberrant world view.

< sarc >I think what the Union leader probably meant was to equate Obama to, the anti-christ, not Christ. (yea right, < / sarc>

The sad thing is, if no one repeats this story enough, then no one will remember they said it.

Someone asked if Rush Limbaugh has mentioned this. I am still waiting for any conservative voice to mention it. I did a Google search and so far my site is one of only two sites that have pointed it out.

How can we get the word out if the Big conservative talking heads won't mention it.

I do however take solace in the fact that God knows he said it and that,
it is written: "As I live, says the LORD, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God." So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. Romans 14:11-12
I do pray for these lost individuals, as I work diligently to defeat them.

I remember over 900 such individuals who drank some tainted Kool-Aid down in Guyana back in the late 70's. They felt the same way about Jim Jones.

Thus the common analogy of equating ones blind loyalty to a lie as drinking the Kool-Aid.

I think this actually transcends blind loyalty. Someone might be willing to kill or die for their leader, but the contrast here is staggering: a desire that their leader be superhuman, but for petty, emotional goals.

This isn’t even moral relativism. This is right up there with Moloch worship, burning one’s own children on a pyre in the hope that the idol will make it rain.

I really had not thought about it in that way, but you make an excellent point.

Today Moloch is the abortion centers. They give their children to the new Moloch so that they will supposedly have a better and easier life. Then when they get old they will wonder why the one or two children they didn't abort, put them in a rest home and never visit.
