Wingnut Calls Obama’s Mom a Crack Whore

Minister and ignorant, bigoted blowhard Steven Anderson was preaching to his congregation about the story of Barak and Deborah in the Bible. He mistakenly thinks that Barack Obama was named after him (he wasn’t; his name comes from a Swahili word that means blessed) and says that only a crack whore would name their child Barack. At what point does a congregation realize that their pastor is a moron? Yeah, I know. Probably never. Stay classy.

    Punishment is having a president named after you?

    Huh?

    Anderson tried to murder Obama.

    With magic AKA imprecatory prayer.

    IIRC, the FBI had a word with him about that. Murder is illegal.

    Stevie’s all, like, “What, I said that out loud? OH, I’m sorry that Obamanding’s moms is a crack whore”

    He’s just trying, Ed, to articulate the whinyfearhatred of REAL MurKKKans like himself.

    I’m not sure what sort of person Mr. Obama’s mother was but I suspect that she was a decent person. They say that the apple doesn’t fall far fro the tree.

    In Anderson’s case I’d say that the turd doesn’t fall far from a rabid dog’s anus. Or, using a line I’ve read several times in novels by James Lee Burke, “His mother must have been impregnated by a leaking colostomy bag.”. Hey, just one man’s opinion.

    Totally stealing that. Thanks.

    Rheinhold Reince Priebus. What about his parents’ naming skills? What were they on?

    When will they realize he is a moron? The guy thinks the Andy Griffith show was subversive because it’s about a widower living with his aunt. You know…evil single parent? He talks about the proper way for men to urinate! He thinks men should not be gynecologists. He thinks children who go to public schools become mindless perverts. Someone already mentioned his death wish for Obama (wanted him to have brain cancer and die like Ted Kennedy). If he still has a congregation, my guess is like yours; they will never realize it.

    I thought perhaps they named him after Reinhold Weege.

    Swahili? Not unless that language has been “borrowing” words from Hebrew.

    From Juan Cole:

    Barack is a Semitic word meaning “to bless” as a verb or “blessing” as a noun. In its Hebrew form, barak, it is found all through the Bible. It first occurs in Genesis 1:22: “And God blessed (ḇāreḵə ) them… Here is a list of how many times barak appears in each book of the Bible.

    I just read the story of Barak and Deborah in Judges 4 . I don’t see why Mr Anderson has a problem with someone being named after Barak, unless Mr Anderson is a Canaanite lover.

    I would surmise it’s because Barak did not have the proper faith and wouldn’t go to war unless Deborah accompanied him. She agreed but told him the honor of winning would go to a woman. This pastor doesn’t like women very much, especially when they “talk back.” So…I’m guessing that’s why Barak is a Bad Name.

    My understanding is that the Swahili ‘Barack’ is borrowed from Arabic, and that the Hebrew form would be ‘Baruch’, like Spinoza. ‘Barak’, like Ehud Barak, is from a different word meaning ‘lightning’.

    Incidentally, the Latin version of ‘Barack’ and ‘Baruch’ is ‘Benedict’.

    @cottonnero:

    Swahili is full of Arabic loanwords, including the word “Swahili” itself (from an Arabic word meaning “of the coast”).

    IIRC, he also doesn’t think women should work or be educated. So….no gynecologists at all! Good luck, women, hope that you never have any problems whatsoever!

    (This frustration brought to you by my recent diagnosis of PCOS. Apparently Anderson thinks I should just deal, never mind the contradiction between reduced fertility and ‘must have the baybees’.)

    From The Crack Whore’s Guide to Baby Names, 2nd Edition:

    Barack – Blessed is he who drives right wingers to drooling, incoherent, insanity.

    So what are all the people who named their babies Debbie? Assistant crack whores?

    Sheesh! who does he think he is? Mohammed?

    @cottonnero #12 – The name Benedict comes from the Latin phrase benedictus, “well spoken” or “good words.” It was used as an epithet for a skilled orator; in Christianity, it evolved to mean a person permitted to bless the people, then later the specific blessing at the end of a ritual. This is why I refer to the previous pope as Maladict (“badly spoken” or “evil words.”)

    Um… wasn’t Barack Obama born twenty years before crack was invented?

    This preacher has a suspiciously muslim-looking beard. An infiltrator?
