Wingnuts: Stray Bugs Prove Obama is Demonic

Just in case you thought the wingnuts had hit bottom in how ridiculous they could become, let me disabuse you of that notion. The Worldnutdaily reports — of course they do — that a couple flies buzzing around President Obama over a few years prove that he’s really Beelzebub.

Those reaching to connect Obama’s fly troubles with the darkest biblical references won’t have much difficulty.

One name commonly used to refer to Satan is Beelzebub, which translates from Hebrew into “Lord of the Flies.”

A posting at the popular Free Republic Web forum discusses Beelzebub and asks, “Is the White House fly infestation evidence of demonic presence and influence there?”

The End Times blog named Obama the “Lord of the Flies.”

The blog connects Obama to Beelzebub, writing, “This really isn’t an academic question. The Lord of the Flies is real.”

Over at RevalationNow.net, a posting by “editorial staff” muses about whether Obama is possessed by a demonic entity.

“I feel like I am watching a horror movie and the secret evil character is revealed by the evil signs around him,” the post reads.

And as always, the comments at Free Republic are just a whirling vortex of stupid:

When the Obama’s first moved into the White House, BHO2’s MIL, Mrs.Robinson, was warned to discontinue her voodoo practices in the basement.

Such rituals involve animal sacrifices, and dead, putrefying flesh and blood attract flies if not promptly cleaned up.

Flies require moisture and nutrients for their offspring. The fact these flies keep appearing makes it apparent their breeding locale is unaffected by attempts to eradicate them.

I suggest those charged with eradication follow Mrs.Robinson into the basement…

I believe lt. There is no other reason for these bizarre happenlngs.

Yeah, no other possible explanation! It apparently hasn’t occurred to them that if Obama really was “lord of the flies” he could order the flies to stay away from him.

    I seem to remember Obama rather adroitly swatting and killing a fly in an early interview. It made the Daily Show, if I recall.

    It disturbs me whenever I read this sort of thing. If these were lone nuts, I could handle it, but they aren’t. They’re organized nuts who wield political clout.

    Do they think that any of the older churches I used to attend with my parents are satanic as well? One of them I attended had yearly fumigations.

    Flies and bugs in god’s house. Not much of a house cleaner. Perhaps there is no body home.

    Should lightning rods on churches be considered a failure of faith?

    Anyone remember that interview that John McCain did for the 2008 election in which a fly landed on his cheek and just started walking around his face?

    I’d like to hear them now tell me that John McCain is also the devil.

    If the flies are attracted to a demonic presence in the White House, I’d be more inclined that it’s the result of the residual stench Dick Cheney left behind.

    What other possible explanation could there be for flies in a city built on a swamp?

    Saint Ronnie drove the flies out of Washington into the sea after a 40 day fast on The Hill. Or was that a feast?

    “I feel like I am watching a horror movie and the secret evil character is revealed by the evil signs around him,” the post reads.

    I feel like I’m listening to a secret idiot and his secret stupid character is revealed by the stupid signs around him. Does this guy even know what the word “secret” means?”

    This shows why you shouldn’t watch horror movies and expect them to provide any guide for how to recognize real evil.

    And Obama is Lord of the Flies, why can’t he get more than TWO flies in his entourage? And what’s so scary about flies anyway? “Lord of the Wasps” would be scary — which is why I made damn sure to vote against Mutt Romney.

    Seriously, of Obama is a Kenyan-born demon-spawn, there’s plenty of much scarier species of flying insect in Africa that he can use to destroy America. “Lord of the Flies?” Please.

    And having already scraped the bottom of what barrels they had…they are now clawing their way into the woodwork at the bottom with bare bloody finger nails…they are not doing well.

    BTW, “Stray Bugs” is either an apt description of these people or a great name for a rock band.

    “What’s that you say, Mrs Robinson?
    All the flies have left and gone away, hey hey hey.”

    Even in the deepest depths of 1968 I never managed to get wrecked enough to come up with shit as crazy as that. I don’t even want any of whatever they’re smoking.

    Calling them infantile would be an insult to infants. At least infants have an excuse for shitting themselves.

    Back when FDR was president, they had rats in the white house.

    There were holes where the flooring was collapsing.

    Truman had the building gutted out to the exterior walls and rebuild.

    The next time someone I know wants to use WND as a reference, I’m going to point them to this article and ask them, “Really, you want to use a site that would take this seriously as a reference?”

    Wow, some random starving kid in Africa easily has Obama beat with the fly problem, so Baalzebub must be low on the infernal totem pole.

    “…if Obama really was “lord of the flies, he could order the flies to stay away from him.”

    Or the flies wouldn’t need such an order in the first place, since they would VOLUNTARILY stay away from their “lord.”

    <blockquoteWhen the Obama’s first moved into the White House, BHO2’s MIL, Mrs.Robinson, was warned to discontinue her voodoo practices in the basement.

    This makes it sound as if they moved in and found Mrs Robinson already there doing voodoo in the basement. For that matter is there any evidence she did any such thing? The only sites I can find mentioning it are wingnut and even they give a rather different story to ‘practising Voodoo in the White House’. The story seems to be that long before the Obama’s met Michelle’s mother took her father to a Santeria healer and Michelle was not happy about it.

    OK I’ve dug a bit more and there is an allegation the same healer was invited to the White House. It seems to have come from a townhall.com column since deleted but again, nothing like evidence is available.

    I thought El was supposed to be the boss of Baal-Shebub and the other Caananite gods.
    And since El is an earlier name for Yaweh you woould expect quite a few flies to be congregating in his temples But there has surely never been any flies inside a Church?

    StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    The End Times blog named Obama the “Lord of the Flies.”
    The blog connects Obama to Beelzebub, writing, “This really isn’t an academic question. The Lord of the Flies is real.”

    Of course it is – The Lord of the Flies was a novel about shipwrecked schoolchildren getting up to terrible nastiness by William Golding. Can’t believe I’m the first to mention that here.

    Nothing to do with Obama of course. (Tries to think of a relevant joke here fails to do so.)

    @28. dan4 :

    @18: Why do you feel the need to REPEAT a joke already told (@14)?

    I’m guessing xe didn’t read the thread before commenting?

    You’d certainly hope so. I do wonder how many if any of their readers actually do believe this stuff and take it seriously percentage ~wise?

    There’s only one reason to call someone the “anti-christ”: to incite assassination attempts. And if attempts do happen, WingNutDaily will claim they never advocated the shooting. It’s on par with Neil Horsley’s “Nuremburg files” website, crossing out the names of abortion providers after they’re murdered.

    What would Satan do to the WND for exposing his plan to take over America?

    I’m still giggling over this one a day later. I’d say the WND jumped the shark but they did that some time ago. If this story that a fly near the president is enough to say he’s in fact an incarnation of a major demonic force is worth the effort they took to post it on line, then they are beyond pitiful. They done gone right through to the other side and can only be considered performance art.
