Controversy is still erupting over whether the actor portraying the antichrist in the hit television series “The Bible,” looks like President Barack Obama. The striking resemblance is reigniting chatter about whether Obama could be the antichrist.
“The reason the White House fears this is because it’s the type of simple-minded meme that can actually get across to the population,” talk show host Alex Jones said during Tuesday’s broadcast.
“They know it’s effective.”
Jones was quick to outline Obama’s devilish ways.
“Obama is the closest to the devil of any president we’ve ever had, if you look at the characteristics of the devil,” he said.
Take lying, for example.
“Undoubtedly, Obama lies at a level way beyond anything I’ve ever seen,” said Jones. “But more than it being about Obama, it is about the season that Obama is in today. We are in the throes of global tyranny. We are in the throes of global decadence. We are in the throes of not just an evil establishment but a more and more corrupt and decadent world population disconnected from reality thanks to Hollywood and other cultures.”
The public simply accepts being bombarded with lies from the government and other areas, perpetuating even more lies.
Obama is a tyrant, but he’s still just a puppet, just like George W. Bush, Jones said, adding that Bush was “not the sharpest knife in the drawer." Obama distinguishes himself from other past presidents, including Bush and Bill Clinton, by being a "more effective evil."
“His lies are mega-whoppers,” Jones said.
A few examples:
*Obama saying he hoped the National Defense Authorization Act wouldn’t pass and then it was revealed that he and his lawyers had worked on it. He said he wouldn’t sign it and then he did.
*The “hellish control” of the Obamacare health insurance tax. The program was touted as a way to reduce insurance premiums by as much as $2, 500 per year. Projections for Obamacare costs indicate it will hike insurance premiums by as much as 106 percent in some states, according to Heritage.org. It also imposes massive restrictions on coverage for pre-existing conditions and limits care.
*Expansion of data collected through grocery store loyalty or discount cards, which will be used by insurance companies to influence health care decisions.
“Beyond 1984,” Jones said, referencing the novel by George Orwell. “Insurance premiums going up if they see you’re buying too much beer and Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate ice cream. If you go out and buy a knee bandage it’s all put into computer algorithms.”
*”Saying we’ve got to attack Syria because Al Quada is there, publicly knowing that they put Al Qaeda in and they run Al Qaeda in Libya, Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Jones said.
He concluded that Obama is not the antichrist, but he is an antichrist. Unfortunately, Obama is not alone. Some Republicans who pretend to oppose him actually support his agendas.
“As soon as Obama leaves office, the dictatorship of the office will be there,” said Jones. “The presidency is dictatorial by every yardstick.”
"The Bible" is produced by "Survivor" creator Mark Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey, who starred in the television series "Touched By An Angel."
The producers and the History Channel quickly distanced themselves from the controversy, calling it nonsense, the Washington Post reported. In a prepared statement History Channel said it "has the highest respect for President Obama."
Moroccan actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, who portrays Satan in "The Bible," has also played Satan in other productions, the Washington Post reported.
Jones rival and conservative commentator Glenn Beck was credited with starting the firestorm Sunday by tweeting a picture of Quazanni and noting that he looks like "That Guy."
Beck claimed he did it just for fun, according to the Washington Post: "Beck followed up Monday telling the media to relax. He said the remark was 'funny, nothing
