Is President Obama a Black Jesus or a Red Jesus?

Film maker Spike Lee believes President Obama is a “Black Jesus.” I didn’t know he was Jewish! Of course, we really don’t know since there’s very little in the President’s background that we’re sure of. I’ll let other people deal with this subject. Here’s what Lee said in an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon as reported by Newsbusters:

“He was a savior, black Jesus. Look, I don't care who it was. Expectations were way too high.”

Borrowing a line from his black Jesus as if it were a line of Scripture, Lee played the blame game, accusing

“Republicans of gridlocking Congress to prevent Obama from winning a second term — ‘a Congress that's solidified as saying, “Whatever you do, we’re blocking that. We’re blocking, and every breath we take, we’re going to do what we can that you don’t get a second term. Bottom line. And if it hurts America in the process, tough business.”’”

This is typical of people who believe in salvation-by-politics. Let government do it. Give power to government no matter how unconstitutional, foolish, and harebrained a policy might be.

For Lee and so many other Blacks, politics is messianic.

The voting booth is their sanctuary. The vote is their communion. The rally is their church. The president is their bishop (Pope if they’re Roman Catholic). They have their high priests – Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton – a lesser group of ministers (literally) and prophets (or is it profits?) that preach and teach that government saves their bodies while Jesus saves their souls.

Are we surprised when a majority of blacks vote against Obama’s homosexual marriage position (souls) but will still vote for him come November because he will save them economically (bodies)?

In reality, Jesus is red for most blacks and probably an equal number of whites. So much of what passes for politics and economics in America is taken from the Communist Manifesto, the reddest of the red when it comes to political and economic theory and practice. Here are some of the main ones in a list of ten:

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form and combination of education with industrial production
