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

    Jesus is the Son of God and this is blasphemy to even connect Jesus as being Obama. WOW how low can our country go to even have someone so stupid to suggest such a thing.

    This is a wierd article. It seems somewhat convoluted. But the bottom line is that Obama is not any kind of Christ. While it is not my place to judge I would say that he does not appear to even be Christian. Or at least he does not addear to what most would consider basic Christian princples.

  • juan

    Why even place Obama with the name of Jesus? Did Jesus told the Government to kill unborn. This country has gone backwards to the time when humanbeings where killed because some person(s) could not give to the government. (see history books). God help us for all the maddness our country and world is going through.

    I know Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). I serve Yeshua HaHmashiach (Jesus Christ). Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) is a Friend of mine! President Obama is NO Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ!! I dare say it’s blasphemy on the part of those clowns who have the temerity to compare ANY human being (much less the incumbent President) to the Almighty Redeemer!!

    Spike Lee is a big mouth racist moron. To compare Obama to Jesus is sacrilegious!!! Obama is more the spawn of Satan, a child of Lucifer than the Son of God. This muslim bastard is for certain one of the anti-Christs mentioned in Revelations and Spike referring to Obama as Jesus is only fulfilling the biblical prophecies.

  • Dr. X

    obummer is not a loving man! He is queer! He is unknown (sealed documents) and an illegal, trader, criminal, American hating low life. If, he is not removed from the WH, soon, his known hell will open up and swallow the America we all know and love! What we do know about him, is that he is a reject from Kenya. He is not black, white, red, yellow, brown, but he is a coward, a law breaker, an illegal anti-American terroist. If, he illegally trys to stay in office, the veterans must come together and remove him and his seed from the planet!

  • D. Heath

    First of all, Spike Lee is a racist idiot. secondly there is not one thing about Obama that is Jesus like. Besides he is Muslim and doesn’t beleive in Jesus.
    He is just a man.. a bought and paid for puppet, for Soros, who has fooled a lot of people, Lee included. When we finally get rid of him, hopefully he will take all his ill gotten gains and leave the country.. go back where he came from.’
    He has single handidly done more damage to this country than any president before him.. and has put race relations back 100 years. God help America from the Racist Obama!

  • Ralph

    This shows me that those who claim to be Christian and vote for Obama have never read the Bible or do their best to find the new version that says what they want it to say.

  • steve

    All blacks that vote Democrat are selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, just like Judas did.

  • Terrance

    This aricle is so racist it’s ridiculous. I’m black and I didn’t vote for him.Many of us didn’t. Yes it’s frustrating that blacks would vote against Gods will. And it’s just as frustrating when any race does it, including whites. But if we want to make this a race issue….. Let us not forget that blacks make up less than 12% of the population. Whites are the majority so consequently Pres. Obama couldn’t have gotten enough votes without whites. Even if every single black person voted (including children) it wouldn’t be enough votes. So this veiled criticism of blacks being awe struck and blinded by racism is the pot calling the “black”.
    Let’s get past the race. If everybody had a “true” relationship with Jesus we wouldn’t be in this mess. Take care of yourself and your house and the rest will fall in line.
