Another Flimsy Adverticle from the Worldnutdaily

You really have to laugh at how transparent the Worldnutdaily is about using the most flimsy pretenses imaginable to push sales of a book they’ve either published or are selling in their bookstore. In this adverticle, they use the silly idea that Obama was citing the Bible in making a very common statement:

In 2009, Barack Obama’s State of the Union address recalled an Old Testament vow of defiance by the Israelites after they had been attacked.

Obama said: “Tonight I want every American to know this: We will rebuild. And the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.”

In June, Obama visited the new tower under construction at the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York and wrote on a steel girder designated to be the highest beam in the structure.

He inscribed: “We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!” …

The multiple references hearken back to the Isaiah 9:10 scripture that describes how, after Israel was attacked, instead of returning to God, the nation’s leaders took a defiant posture and promised to rebuild by themselves.

Here’s what Isaiah 9:10 says:

The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.

Wow. How shocking and notable. And I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that WND is selling a book and a documentary called “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” which they’ve been relentlessly pimping for months now.

    Doesn’t, like, every defeated opponent vow to come back stronger?

    I mean, it’s not like Obama is quoting the Old Testament. It’s more like the US and the ancient Hebrews are just like Saturday morning cartoon villains.

    What? WhirledNutsDaily not quoting:

    “Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;” ?!?

    How unpatriotic, why does WND hate America so?

    Whoa, excuse me! But is the WND saying that Obama is religious, perchance Christian?

    So, they’re telling to the ancient Hebrews “You didn’t built that”?

    Here’s one of the more obvious problems with WND’s pimping of Isaiah 9:10-America is, in Isaiah 9, far more like Assyria than Israel. Americans have not had a quarter of their population and the majority of their territory taken or annexed by a foreign power with the most powerful military in the world.

    Why, yes indeed. “Rebuilding” is obvious a very non-Christian activity. You can see that whenever a tornado, flood, or other disaster comes through a town the Christians all come together to stone these homeless people out of the community. They shall be made to repent in the wilderness, wearing sackcloth and ashes while contemplating the judgement God saw fit to inflict upon them for their sins.

    Surely Habitat for Humanity is a Satanic organization.

    Probably much more than a quarter of their population. Assyria’s destruction of Israel is where 10 of the original 12 tribes were lost, if there ever were really 12 tribes. The fact is, we know very little about ancient Israel – most all of the information we have comes to us from the surviving inhabitants of Judah, Israel’s southern, poorer, and much more rustic neighbor. Isaiah was notable for opposing his king’s attempts to make alliances with Egypt and Babylonia against the Assyrians, figuring that this showed a lack of faith in God’s power to take care of his followers. (Similar sentiments can be found among our own Southern, poorer, and more rustic populations.)

    Then the Assyrians showed up, and wackiness ensued. Along with the making of excuses.

    -The 733-2 campaigns of Tiglath-Pileser III only led to the devastation of Galilee, Transjordan, and probably the Jezreel Valley and Sharon. Simeon, Judah, and Benjamin were completely unscathed by these campaigns, while Gad, Reuben, Naphtali, Zebulon, and probably Issachar and parts of Manasseh were very much affected. I am uncertain about whether Levi and Asher were affected, but Ephraim and most of Manasseh were probably left intact.

    @3> No, as I understand it they’re comparing Obama to the leaders of Israel who didn’t turn to god. They’re trying to draw a stupid parallel.

    Garb,

    what fucking morons. A whole book devoted to this horse-shit? Well, why the fuck not? It’ll take a lot of Shakespeare and Mozart to wash the taste of stupidity out of my mouth.

    I thought they were criticizing him for not respecting their old fairy tales? Now they’re criticizing him for quoting the Bible?

    What should we do, sit back and wait for God to rebuild the World Trade Center?

    -The 733-2 campaigns of Tiglath-Pileser III …

    Fascinating. Thanks for the detailed response.
