NPR remains silent on reporter's 0bama/Jesus comparison (vanity)
NPR ^ | September 14, 2011 | Frank James

VANITY

NPR has remained silent on the blog from Frank James comparing 0bama to Jesus. Not a word from NPR. Silence.

However most reader comments at the link are scathing.


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: npr
I guess cheer-leading 0bama's Messianic mission is a fair use of confiscated tax dollars.

I long for the time when NPR is defunded.

Here is what passes for balance at NPR

AUDIENCE MEMBER: I love you, Barack!

THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. (Applause.) But first — but if you love me — if you love me, you got to help me pass this bill. (Applause.) If you love me, you got to help me pass this bill. 

Here's John 21:15, the New International Version, describing a scene between Jesus and his disciples:

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter,"Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?"

"Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you."

Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."

“I long for the time when NPR is defunded.”

It’s really hard to take Republicans seriously until they get serious about doing this.

An insulting mis-use of the bible to compare Jesus Christ to Barack Obama, a very mortal, Chicago politician that conned enough people to win election to the presidency and is earnestly engaged in destroying the U.S, economy. That a leftist dares make the comparison is not shocking. These type have no 'religion' but communism and their 'god' is 'the state'. NPR won't say a word about it and if they did, it would be some insincere brush-off, pretending it was a joke or an oh-so-clever satire, too intellectual for mere peons to grasp.

Here’s the actual New testament quote:

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.”

From their point of view there is no difference between Obama and Jesus.
So they would be mystified to be accused of bias.

Indeed, I long for it as well.

I believe it was just this week that NPR or PBS corrected the transcript of dear leader’s speech where he mistakenly credited Lincoln as the founder of the GOP.

They certainly do have his back don’t they?!

AUDIENCE MEMBER: I love you, Barack!

That was not an "audience member." That was a shill.

Also, you will notice that Jesus Christ made his demands of his disciple, Peter. He did not make them of Augustus Caesar.

Actually, reading into the article, I think the author is making fun of O’s messianic pretensions.

Comparing 0bama to Jesus. -- Hey! That's my line. George Noory, host of "nonpartisan" (says Noory) CoastToCoastAM.

Four years of lovin' Obama and ten (still counting) years of hating Bush and his whole family.

Time for some balance at NPR.

Next time Obama speaks, you need to quote the Koran and compare Obama to Muhammed.

GO AHEAD.

I DARE YA.

Ok then, let's nail Obama to a cross and see how he's fleeing in three days. If he's Jesus then no problem. If he's not Jesus, then, there's still no problem.

I’m sure their biggest problem with it is they consider Jesus to be a fictional character.

hint- He’s not.

“Barack Obama’s nomination is so extraordinary
that another chapter could be added to the Bible
to chronicle its significance.”
— Jesse Jackson, Jr.

“In a way Obama is standing above the country,
above the world. He’s sort of god. He’s going
to bring all different sides together.”
— Newsweek editor Evan Thomas

“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going
to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put
down your divisions. That you come out of your
isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone.
Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives
as usual - uninvolved, uninformed.”
— Michelle Obama, reported by The Boston Globe

“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’
because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor
Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to
MacArthur.”
— Obama, ABC News Interview

Obama: “We must never stop until we see the day when
nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the
earth.”

Sarkozy: “President Obama is incredibly naive and
grossly egotistical - so egotistical that no one
can dent his naïveté.”

Perhaps the comments are scathing because most who worship at the altar of NPR do NOT believe in Jesus..
