The Messiah is an Empty Suit

Or the Messiah has no Clothes
“America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children.”—Democrat presumptive nominee Sen. Barack Obama
Not since the little boy in Hans Christian Anderson’s fairly tale, “The Emperor has no Clothes” has a child brought about such enlightenment for the village.

We of this village, the village of the United States of America can now see what asking the right question can do to open unsuspecting eyes to the truth.

That is just what a 7 year old little girl in Elkhart Indiana did last week when she asked a question of Sen. Barack Obama on Obama's campaign stump. This little girl’s question exposed Sen. Obama for the empty suit that he is. I’m even now more resolute in knowing that Sen. Clinton had it wrong. On the contrary Sen. Clinton it takes a child to raise a village particularly if the village is given over to false worship.

In Anderson’s fairy tale two huckster tailors come to the village with sophistic tales of invisible looms and golden thread all to make an invisible suit for the Emperor to wear.

As the story goes anyone who did not see the visible cloth that the golden thread produced or the suit that they tailored from the invisible cloth were too stupid to live in the village and certainly too stupid to advise the Emperor, so everyone in the village pretended to see the pretend invisible suit.

These two peddlers would have gotten clean away with their farce too had it not been for a little boy that cut through all the pretence and said what he saw. “THE EMPEROR HAS ON NO CLOTHES” The little boy shouted when the Emperor paraded down the middle of the village with his ignorance showing adored in nothing but underwear and lies.

The whole village and even the Emperor himself had allowed highfalutin words to dazzle them into a group psychosis making the whole village susceptible to the wiles of the two predatory conmen.

In like fashion, Sens. Clinton’s and Obama’s campaigns to be the Democrat nominee for President of the United States of America has paralleled Anderson’s fairly tale. Both campaigns where filled complete with sophistry and highfalutin words of a failed America woven into an anti-American tapestry like so much invisible cloth.

So naturally their candidacies begged the question why do you what to be President?

But only a 7-year-old little girl was smart enough to ask it. When this question, elegant for its simplicity, was asked of the presumptive Democrat nominee, Sen. Barack Obama, Obama sputtered out perhaps the most appallingly revealing answer he said, “America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children.”

Doesn’t make any sense does it? But oh contraire it does!

Sen. Obama the Democrat Party and the Senator’s wife have been weaving this dark dank picture of America for going on 7 years now. America the war monger, America the immigrant hater, America the homophobic, America the Global polluter, America the racist, America the sexist, America the greedy, America the imperialist, America the vast right-wing conspirator, etc.

When Sen. Obama, Democrats or Sen. Clinton, for that matter look at America they see the worst of what America has been and even the worst of some things that we have not been.

That is their reality or they could not possible say the things that they say about America. What is so breathe takingly ironic is that Sen. Obama for all intents and purposes will be the first openly Black man to be voted as nominee of a major American political Party a historic feat and tribute to the change that America has undergone.

Yet the Senator has looked right passed this historical time in American history to complain about an unjust America, a figment of his own deluded hatred for this Country.

How could the first openly Black presumptive nominee of a major political Party in the United States of America miss the gravity and the historic important of this time, his time, the time that he, his wife and his followers have been waiting for?

How could Sen. Obama tell a 7-year-old little girl that he’s running for President basically because America sucks and he doesn’t want that for his children?

I think twenty years of sitting in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Church of Black Liberation Theology combined with the normal ideology of Democrat’s hate America first is woven right into the very fabric of who Barack Hussein Obama is.

He could not have answered that 7-year-old’s question any other way. For Sen. Obama to look past all of the progress that America has made, progress that is responsible for his political rise and success is indicative of the self deluded blindness and emptiness of his political views.

For Sen. Obama politically, there is no balm in Gilead, there is no rose of Sharon. And as for he who would presume to speak to the people of the world as he did in Germany, a 7-year-old little girl has revealed to that world that the Messiah has no clothes.

    OK, Barack looks ridiculous with that beard and halo. I got that. He stumbled and fell as he walked on water last week as the prop wire snapped. I noticed that too. Rambling about it doen't make the point as well as humor does.

    Remember when Elijah mocked the Prophets of Ba'al? "Pray harder! Ba'al is asleep! Ba'al is with a wife procreating! Ba'al is on a journey to find other goddesses to enjoy"

    That's what is called for here. Can Barack forgive John Edwards and Bill Clinton for the sin of Adultry? Can he cure Ted Kennedy of cancer and raise John & Bobby from the dead? Can he make the evil George W. Bush die of worms as what happened to Herod? We must hake hast to elect him before he ascends to Heaven, because waiting for second comings is such a lengthy process.

    You'd be amazed about how a few jokes solves he problem of false Messiahs. Erasmus was good at this sort of thing when he wrote a one act play about the Pope being refused entry into Heaven.

    Don't be a spinsterly sourpuss. Keep trying to make a joke and eventually, you will succeed. Take Rice University and the University of Houston, for example. Both have sorry football teams. Their play is so bad that just because the other team wins the game, that should not be taken as proof that the other team showed up for the game. Yet Rice and UH still attempt to play football.
