Green Room

The Apostle Barack?

posted at 5:21 pm on November 14, 2012 by

This is not, PJM’s Myra Adams warns us, a joke — or at least not an intentional joke.  Nor is this offered in an ironic sense, as in how the media has portrayed Barack Obama.  This epistle comes from a phys-ed professor at Florida A&M, who claims God told her that Barack Obama is the fifth Beatle, er, thirteenth Apostle:

Still think this is some kind of put-on?  Take a look at the Amazon page:

“Yes, Barack had worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, especially those who elected him in 2008. His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term, so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or “heaven here on earth.”

Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor. Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth.” For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.

If you want to feel renewed confidence in America, though, be sure to read the comments on the Amazon site.  It has 25 reviews, all with one star … because you can’t choose anything lower, apparently. What’s most disturbing is not that this book is around, but that it’s authored by a university professor.  Publication standards seem to be slipping a bit in Academia.

Well I think Obama is the 13th Imam.

Yeah, we’ll all be equally poor.

Just wait until “Chris M. from New York, New York” reviews the book. That’ll put at least one “5 Star” review in the system.

Damn. I thought it said: Apostasy.

:P

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on November 14, 2012 at 5:38 PM

The woman must be a mental case. If that book isn’t a joke, how else to explain it? She needs serious psychiatric counseling, and maybe a few words with a minister.

HEaven on Earth to progressives results in N. Korea EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Toilet paper sure is getting expensive? Oh wait, maybe we’re finally in the hyper-inflation phase of Aposotle Obozo’s heaven on earth. Oh joy! Rapture!

Medved interview this woman. She is an absolute nut. Complete fruitcake. To make it worse, she’s a tenured professor.

This tyranny must be destroyed.

I heard the interview on Medved. It is impossible to overstate what a delusional Koolaid drinking Obamatard she is. That interview has to be heard to be believed.

SOMETHING “beckoning me in my dreams at night”, just not what you think it is.

It’s a self-published “vanity” book, not a legit publication.

There’s a five star review on there, published half an hour ago, so here go the culture warriors a-warring.

But these review titles are great:

1.0 out of 5 stars These Liberals need mental help
1.0 out of 5 stars looney toon
1.0 out of 5 stars Insanity unleashed.
1.0 out of 5 stars I actually puked in my mouth
1.0 out of 5 stars Need to Have Negative Stars as a Choice
1.0 out of 5 stars What a Wacko
1.0 out of 5 stars mushroom dreams
1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke?

If the future cannot belong to haters of the prophet Muhammed- it must belong to the Apostle Barrack Hussein.

FlaMurph on November 14, 2012 at 6:51 PM

There is one 5 star review:

I had always felt my life was worthless and had no purpose until I lucked upon this book. Sure, I had built my own business, employed thousands, tithed 20% to my (other) church. But it all felt so empty. As I sat in my chair one night, browsing Amazon, with a gun in my mouth I accidentally clicked a link to this book and it felt as if the hand of Barack had sent a bolt of lightning through my body. I now know what I must do. Last week I voted for revenge against the evil capitalists, shut down my business and donated all of the proceeds to Solyndra. Can’t wait to see what my future holds!

Whenever men set out to create heaven on earth, they invariably end up creating hell instead.

portlandon on November 14, 2012 at 5:25 PM

This is actually typical of Black Liberation Theology. The Nation of Islam and Trinity Church mishmash Christian and Muslim theology into one. Obama does it quite a bit in his own speeches.

logis on November 14, 2012 at 7:43 PM

As crazy as this sound, this is an accurate representation of Progressive Philosophy.

The roots of which come from 19th Century German Philosophy, most notably from Hegel.

The entire project is Utopian and to create a “Heaven on Earth” through the State.

history is riddled with dictators that were deified and who slaughtered their people.

…Judas!

KOOLAID2 on November 14, 2012 at 8:47 PM

Oh this is fantastic news, all you unbelievers should be ashamed . Please let him be an apostle. Lets see Peter was crucified upside down, John was exiled to die in a cave, Paul was executed in Rome, I think a number were beheaded, burned at the stake and stoned to death. Very few apostles lived to old age. So please let it be true, I hope he is an apostle. SARC OFF/ LOL!

This woman is either delusional or possessed.

If any spirit did visit her, it wasn’t God’s. Did she somehow miss out on Obama’s infanticide position, his constant lying, his acrimonious passive aggression, his tactics of intimidation, his belittling of others? Obama is a stranger to integrity and truth. He’s not even a good man, much less anything else.

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on November 14, 2012 at 5:38 PM

That middle word is a misspelling!

The Apostate Barack.

Seriously, I’m a Christian and the things this woman writes curl my hair. They’re blasphemous.

heaven here on earth.

John 18:

Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice. Pilate saith to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them: I find no cause in him. But you have a custom that I should release one unto you at the pasch: will you, therefore, that I release unto you the king of the Jews? Then cried they all again, saying: Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

Behold, the New Barabbas.

The day after the election I had to pick myself up off the floor. I just could not believe the American people were this stupid……Now this book confirms it. They’re out there.

Yikes!!!

Actually, I’ve concluded that she’s a genius marketer. This is a crap, self-published, nothing of a book. In ordinary circumstances, she’d be luck to sell 10 copies total to friends and family.

But, get conservative blogs to gin up outrage over the book and who knows how many copies it will sell?

AngusMc on November 14, 2012 at 10:50 PM

“Red and yellow, black and white,
All are people in his sight.

Olo_Burrows on November 15, 2012 at 3:13 AM

on Darkness Radio, before the election, a guy who has been kidnapped numerous times by extraterrestrials said that he was told by the ets that Obama would win the election because he was the ant-christ.
I thought he was just a nut.

conservativegrandma on November 15, 2012 at 8:14 AM

What’s most disturbing is not that this book is around, but that it’s authored by a university professor.

Only a university can make a person that stupid. The universities no longer teach. Their job is now to brainwash to the correct way of thinking. University students may not understand their field of study but every one of them knows to the center of their beings that abortion is right, SSM is wonderful, Islam is a religion of peace, whites are racists, capitalism is bad, Christians are hate filled bigots, conservatives are the essence of pure evil and the USA is the most vile country on the planet.

You could be right. I’m in the process of writing a novel and my daughter who is my proof reader/adviser asked why I chose to have the main character a lesbian. I told her it was simple marketing. The story really doesn’t change because she is and it’s not a focal point of the story. I just figured if I could put in the description that she was lesbian I would get more sales because I was being progressive and tolerant.

Frank Enstine on November 15, 2012 at 8:55 AM

I listened to Medved interview her. One word: LOON.

Frank Enstine on November 15, 2012 at 8:55 AM

And when you send it to a publishing house, an editor (if s/he gets past the 1st page) will wonder, ‘What is the point of making her a lesbian?‘ I hope you have a better answer.

Is this some new kind of community service punishment?

I mean both for the person who wrote it, and anyone sentanced to read it.
