Barack Obamessiah Goes To Berlin
redstate.com ^ | July 24, 2008 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 07/24/2008 10:20:14 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Not Since 1939 Have So Many Germans Turned Out To Hear A Politician in Berlin

Barack Obama is set to speak at the Victory Column in Berlin. The Victory Column commemorates Germany's last military victory over France and Austria in the last 1860's - early 1870's. From that link:

Berlin authorities say that as many as a million people could attend. Four TV stations are broadcasting the entire speech, and the rest are scrambling to secure prime locations at the site.

Originally, the column was in a different location, but Hitler moved it in 1939 to its present location. He too wanted a beautiful stage and backdrop in Berlin. I'll refrain from pointing out the irony here.

Fast forward from 1939 to 2008 and Barack Obama will take the stage at the Victory Column. I'm sure Barack Obama is unperturbed by the military and Nazi history of the Victory Column and only recognizes it as being in U2's video for "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)".

But, okay, I can't help myself, Barack Obama is using propaganda FILMED IN GERMANY MADE POSSIBLE BY THE NAZIS RELOCATING THE FREAKING STATUTE!!!!!!! to woo Americans to vote for him. He's going to have freaking film crews there and the media to make sure the full emotional impact reaches back to the United States.

I just heard Rush say that the latest Fox Poll shows Obama up by only 1 pt. This trip is not working for Obama, apparently.

It wouldn’t make sense to attack his Patriotism and then call him Nationalist. I thought you can’t be both.

I think you should consider not allowing this “messiah” label to be put on every other thread about Obama.

Might have been moderately cute the first ten thousand times, in a juvenile sort of way, but it’s the sort of thing that is going to backfire, big time.

That’s my opinion.

The Messiah is speaking at a monument to the wars that led to the foundation of the German Empire? Not very politically correct, that.

DON'T YOU DARE QUESTION MY PATRIOTISM! (now back to our original programming).

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus

Hitler and Obama are both icons of socialism.

News report from ABC, NBC, CBS,CNN U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama on his trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories made a pre-dawn visit to Jerusalem's Wailing Wall - the holiest site in Judaism.

Most Israelis and Palestinians say they realize Obama's visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories had more to do with U.S. domestic politics than with resolving their 60-year-old conflict.

During his vislt a leper approached Him, knelt before Him worshiping, and pleaded, "if You want to, You can heal me". Barack touched the man, and said to him "be healed". And instantly the leper was healed. Two blind men followed Barack, crying loudly, "Have mercy on us " Barack said to them "Do you believe I am able to do this?" They said to Him "Yes, Barack." Then He touched their eyes and said "According to your faith let it be done to you." And their eyes were opened.

Later in the day he met a man who pleaded with him to remove the demon(Bush) from his son. His handlers at the base of the mountain had tried to cast out the demon, but could not. Barack rebuked the demon and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.

Before leaving Israel Barack Obama made a short visit to the manger in Bethlehem where he was born.

Just heard speech on Rush. Those who believe this drivel must be of like mind to

Colonel Klink
[a bumbling self-serving bureaucrat rather than an evil person. His vanity makes him an easy target for Hogan’s flattery]

and Seargent Schultz
[Schultz is a basically good-hearted man who, when confronted by evidence of the prisoners’ covert activities, will simply look the other way, repeating “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!” (or, more commonly as the series went on, simply “I see nothing, nothing!”) in order to avoid becoming involved in any way.]

I think what needs to be said is that Germany is filled with socialists, STILL. I'm sure Obama feels at home there.

Does anyone think any politician can gather a million people to anything political in the US? Not a chance.

Thank you for the report. Praise be upon the Obamessiah. And to think, before all these miraculous events, he was just a humble carpenter from Chicago. :-))

I was just texting with my German friend in Hanover and I asked him if he was falling for that “fraud” Obama. This is what he wrote:

“How can you think that? Despite the rare information about US election business in our news, his visit is a big media deal! Seem’s he’s more tv guy than politician!”

He just stopped his sophomoric speech which was nothing more than fluff. He sounded a lot like Rodney "Can't we all just get along" King.

He did not sound presidential. Kennedy told the Russians, not an inch. Reagan told the Russians to tear down the wall. Obama said, "We'll work with the Russians. They aren't so bad after all." and he lectured the Germans, a nation that is really decended from a single tribe, how great America is...but he did not call upon the Germans to adopt the U.S. Constitution...maybe that's because he opposes much in that august document.

He looked like a refugee from a high school oratory class.

Obama can not be "ein Berliner" but maybe he can be "ein Dansk", after all, he is much more of a pastry than Michele is.

P.S. I suspect Jesse Jackson would find that Michele beat him to the castration counter.

WOW EV we finally agreed on something. Yes the use of the word Messiah as a joke and attribute it to a socialist and a defeatist like Obama is deeply offending for many of us because the word Messiah is a holy word and it should only be attributed to our Lord Jesus Christ.

People are astounded by the large numbers of attendees at Obama’s speech?

This is Germany in the summer - many are on vacation and they only work 35 hours a week at the most.

They have plenty of time to stand around and listen to speeches.

Reflects my opinion, too. I´m German, and I´ve no say in US elections. So why is he campaigning in my country? He´ll be welcome as US president (just like a President McCain), since he will represent a befriended nation of my country. But he´s no special person to me. Just a senator of a legislative of a foreign country.

You're right. Smug, arrogant BHO pictures are everywhere.

I'm sure Barack Obama is unperturbed by the military and Nazi history of the Victory Column and only recognizes it as being in U2's video

I’ll just let it stand for what I believe.

Anyone can say anything pleasing to vast numbers of people if they are NOT BOUND TO COMMIT TO KEEP THOSE WORDS.

We can promise people the moon and the willing crowds will expect to receive the moon - if we are not planning to deliver.

Thus it is easy to say and mean what you never intend.

All I want from Obama is his birth certificate cleared up!
