Hagee Joins the ‘End of America’ Brigade


John Hagee has, predictably, joined the chorus of wingnut voices telling their followers that if President Obama is reelected, America will be destroyed — and probably bring about plagues of locusts and frogs, dogs and cats living together and who knows what else.

“I have said it before and I will say it again: the election on Nov. 6, 2012 for the office of president is the day of decision for America. Four more years of Obama will bring absolute socialism to America. Our children and grandchildren will never know the greatness of America that we have experienced.

*yawn* But he has a solution. Wait for it….PRAYER.

“This must not happen! … I am asking the Christians of America to join us in 40 days of prayer for this presidential election. These 40 days of prayer will begin on Sept. 28, 2012. You can do it individually or in groups, but prayer is the most powerful force God has given us to bring our nation back to righteousness. I’ll be saying more about this as the year progresses, but mark it on your calendar and start telling your family, friends, and church members now about the 40 days of prayer.”

I think this is great advice. And when the 40 days of prayer fails to keep Obama out of the White House, they should engage in 1460 days of prayer, every day he will be in office. Pray unceasingly, as the Bible says. Quit your jobs and stay home to pray. Pray your little hearts out. It will have as much impact on the world as throwing salt over your shoulder or casting spells on people.

    Actually, throwing salt over your shoulder might just accidently blind the guy planning to mug you and, therefore, might impact the world. So its got a leg up on prayer!

    Ed Brayton,

    If Obama is reelected, come 2016 and America is still here, despite Obama being in office for four more years, will any of these people actually admit to being wrong?

    He’s wrong when he suggests praying in groups: A long time ago, in a land far, far, away, a man called Jesus said,

    “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men…But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray…Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:5-6

    I completely endorse his (Hagee’s) plan. They should all stay home on November 6 and pray, pray, pray. And when Obama wins another term – as seems more and more likely with each new Romney revelation – they can say it was JHVH’s will, and fully embrace him as their fully enfranchised president, and give him all the support they can!

    I disagree. The wingnuts praying 24 hours a day for 1460 days would have a tremendous impact on the world. It would be a far better place just to have them out of circulation for 4 years.

    On the contrary, Ed. It will actually have a very distinct and salutary effect: they’ll go broke, lose everything they own, lose the political power they currently wield, and best of all stand as a cautionary example to those whose brains aren’t already rotted.

    For that reason, I heartily second your endorsement of the “prayer 24/7″ plan.

    Great advice. Pretending to talk to an imaginary Sky Fairy always does something. Don’t forget to vote for jesus rather than that Fake Xian, the Mormon one.

    Hagee is in serious danger himself though. He might get kicked out of the Xian Con-People of American organization. Nowhere in the above paragraphs did he ask people to send him money. I assume that will be in the followup.

    Hagee:

    God sent a hunter. A hunter is someone who comes with a gun, and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel.

    Hagee is a veritable volcano of hate and lies. He hates Catholics. He once said that the Holocaust was god’s plan for the Jews. That went over real well among the Jews.

    The wingnuts praying 24 hours a day for 1460 days would have a tremendous impact on the world.

    And at the end of those days, they will watch the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States and the departure of Obama from office forever. And they will see that it is good. There will be much rejoicing and they will congratulate themselves on the mighty power of prayer to effect such a miracle.

    1461. There’s a leap day in there.

    Although I suppose if they promise to pray real hard those remaining 1460, we can give them February 29, 2016 off.

    Actually, if the Wingnuts were to spend all their time praying instead of trying to bully everyone else into submission, it would very probably have a very noticeable, and very beneficial, impact on the world.

  11. garnetstar says

    Do these wingnuts not know that they are encouraging true Christian patriots to assasinate Obama, in the cause of preserving freedom in America? Or do they just not care?

    I leave it to yourselves to determine.

    I know this is awful of me but I wish all the born-again crazies would pull a ‘Heaven’s Gate’ after Obama is re-elected.

  13. says

    Hagee is right up there with the likes of Gary Bauer and Bill Donohue when it comes to ugliness (and I’m not talking about the skin-deep variety).

    But Hagee is late to the party. Conserative Catholic Radio started their own magical election incantation all of two weeks ago.

  14. says

    The fact that they don’t proves that most of this nonsense is bluster to keep their flock in a constant state of fear and loathing. Hagee is a very rich man, and he knows that he will still be a very rich man even after another four years of Obama, and even after another eight of the next Democratic president (should that happen).

    He just doesn’t want others to know that because it would loosen his grip on the thousands who attend his church every Sunday.

    I love San Antonio. I fell in love the first day I was here, in 1970. THe more time I have spent here, the more I have loved this town.

    As far as I am concerned, there is only one thing about San Antonio that is unacceptable. John Hagee lives here.

    If it all gets too much for you, you’ll always be welcome here in Austin :-)

    absolute… socialism.

    heh. hahaha… BWAHAHAAAHAHAAAAAAAAA…

    *wheeze*

    Remember 2008? Moses had just come down from mount Rushmore after visiting Yahweh, who had given him some nifty stone tablets, only to discover a black man in the white house…

    I don’t know how you have survived 4 years of rivers of blood.

    You want them to make an late, expensive movie that bombs at the box office, bankrupting its studio?

    Wrong? They’ll be crowing from the rooftops that they’re heroes, their prayers, their very prayers were noticed by god himself who extended a benevolent hand to keep things basically the same as they were rather than letting the country explode, implode, catch on fire, snap freeze & melt in acid all at the same time! All he asks for in return is suppression of women, homosexuals and criticism…

    Same shit, different year…

    Romney lost the day he pissed off all the Ron Paul people with the rules change at the Convention. They are deluded into thinking that Gary Johnson has a chance so they bolted. All the rest of this is theater…

  22. benenglish says

    Sometimes I think God does grant the prayers of the wicked just to let them suffer the just rewards. Of course, I would be thrilled if they just prayed all the way from dawn to dusk and didn’t make it to the polls.
