Before the Obamas jetted off to Hawaii for their final all-expense-paid Christmas vacation, they once again put on fancy clothes and prerecorded their Christmas message.
Like every other tiresome Christmas greeting from Mr. and Mrs. Non-Christian, it is crammed full of saccharine bromides and meaningless drivel.
There’s an episode of The Gilmore Girls where Rory and Lorelai stand as godparents to Sookie and Jackson’s children. Before the service, the reverend takes them back to his study to speak with them.
So, I always like to take a few minutes before my baptisms
to get to know the godparents a little bit. Of course I already
know you two, but I just want to touch base and make sure
you understand the obligations of what you’re getting into
here today. Now, basically, godparents are responsible for
the spiritual upbringing of their godchildren. I certainly hope
the parents throw their two cents in, but the godparents are
vitally important figures in a child’s life. So, tell me, what are
your religious affiliations?
Oh, well, Reverend, you’ve known us forever.
Well, yes, I have, and I still have no idea what your religious
We’re a bit lapsed.
Well, um…religion. But, you know, I can’t speak for Rory,
but I have a strong belief in good…you know…over evil.
I mean, if I was asked to choose a side…
I read “The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe”.
I have a Bible. Although I may or may not have accidentally
given it to goodwill, because I’m remodeling. But goodwill
is a religious organization… I think. But even if it’s not, good
will. It’s in the ballpark.
I buy tons of girl-scout cookies.
I have two “Mary is my homegirl” T-shirts.
This is how I feel listening to the Obamas talk about the meaning of Christmas.
Check it out.
THE PRESIDENT: Merry Christmas everybody! One of the best parts of the holiday season is spending time with the special people in your life. And for me, that means getting some help from my best friend for our annual Christmas Weekly Address.
THE FIRST LADY: Given how our first Christmas Weekly Address went, I realized that Barack needed all the help he could get.
Then he probably should have gotten a pastor or religious leader who actually has some comprehension of what it is Christians are celebrating on Christmas.
THE FIRST LADY: Celebrating the holidays in the White House over these past eight years has been a true privilege.
Such a privilege, in fact, that they high-tail it out of Washington a week beforehand and head for Hawaii.
The First Lady: We’ve been able to welcome over half a million guests… our outstanding pastry chefs have baked 200,000 holiday cookies… and Barack has treated the American people to countless dad jokes.
THE PRESIDENT: Although a few got a…Frosty reception.
Ah, yes. Cookies and Dad jokes.
There it is, my friends. The true meaning of Christmas.
THE FIRST LADY: This year’s White House holiday theme is “The Gift of the Holidays,” and our decorations reflect some of our greatest gifts as a nation: from our incredible military families, to the life-changing impact of a great education.
For unto us the life-changing impact of great education was born
Unto us great education was given
Unto us life-changing impact was given
For unto use the life-changing impact of great education was born
THE PRESIDENT: And the greatest gift that Michelle and I have received over the last eight years has been the honor of serving as your President and First Lady. Together, we fought our way back from the worst recession in 80 years, and got unemployment to a nine-year low. We secured health insurance for another twenty million Americans, and new protections for folks who already had insurance. We made America more respected around the world, took on the mantle of leadership in the fight to protect this planet for our kids, and much, much more.
By so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we first got here. And I’m hopeful we’ll build on the progress we’ve made in the years to come.
Deck the halls with mounds of bullshit
Fa lala lala lala lala
Why am I not surprise that Obama uses the occasion of his “final Christmas message” to crow about how he fancies himself the Savior of America?
THE PRESIDENT: Tomorrow, for the final time as the First Family, we will join our fellow Christians around the world to rejoice in the birth of our Savior. And as we retell His story from that Holy Night, we’ll also remember His eternal message, one of boundless love, compassion and hope.
Anybody else interpret that to mean that once Obama is no longer President he won’t be wasting his time pretending to “rejoice in the birth of our Savior?”
Jesus “eternal message” is “boundless love, compassion and hope?”
Is Jesus the Son of God come to take away the sins of the world or is He Barack Obama’s personal “Inspiration-a-Day” calendar?
THE FIRST LADY: The idea that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. That we should treat others as we would want to be treated. And that we care for the sick… feed the hungry… and welcome the stranger… no matter where they come from, or how they practice their faith.
It never ceases to amaze me how much the Obamas embrace a snotty retort from Cain after he murdered his brother Abel.
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” And he said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground. Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth.”
This is the problem when non-Christians try and act like they know a little something about the Bible.
It would be better if Michelle just bragged about owning a “Mary is my home-girl” T-shirt.
Also, always beware when the Obamas use the word “we.” They never include themselves in this. Ever.
When Jesus said, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me,” he wasn’t talking about Government. He was talking about an individual Christian.
For Obama, Christian charity is not something each individual should practice. Rather, it is the function of government.
Naturally, the only time the Obamas talk about “the values of Jesus” are to advocate for their big government agenda and open borders.
THE PRESIDENT: Those are values that help guide not just my family’s Christian faith, but that of Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans; nonbelievers and Americans of all backgrounds. And no one better embodies that spirit of service than the men and women who wear our country’s uniform and their families.
Tell me. When Barack Obama delivered his Ramadan address did he take the time to lecture Muslims about “Jewish Americans” or Christian Americans? But every time he has to grudgingly recognize a Christian holiday, Obama bends over backwards to make it some watered-down, ecumenical tripe.
THE FIRST LADY: As always, many of our troops are far from home this time of year, and their families are serving and sacrificing right along with them. Their courage and dedication allow the rest of us to enjoy this season. That’s why we’ve tried to serve them as well as they’ve served this country. Go to JoiningForces.gov to see how you can honor and support the service members, veterans and military families in your community – not just during the holidays, but all year round.
That must be why Obama left for vacation without signing the law increasing military pay.
THE PRESIDENT: So as we look forward to the New Year, let’s resolve to recommit ourselves to the values we share. And on behalf of the all the Obamas – Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and that troublemaker Sunny – Merry Christmas, everybody.
THE FIRST LADY: And we wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2017… thanks, and God bless.
I think it is safe to say that I do not share any values with the Obamas. And I’m not particularly interested in resolving to commit myself to their values of collectivism, big government, loss of individual liberty, the destruction of our sovereignty and the undermining of our Constitution.
And as a Christian, I am grateful that I no longer have to listen to these two twist and pervert my faith to fit their radical Leftist political views.
