Behold The Lamb

This latest bit of Obamessiah agitprop from the New York Times rendered BigFurHat speechless:

Doug Ross isn’t speechless, though:

Let’s review the central attributes of the photograph:

  • Obama, in what has become a tradition for the media, is deified with lighting that resembles a halo (ever recall the use of similar lighting for George W. Bush?)
  • Deification is further emphasized through the use of a cross watermark, courtesy of a mosaic filter
  • The focus, however, is on Obama’s single upraised finger, the digit pointing towards the heavens, as if to say “I am the one that can save us, as it was foretold by the ancients.” Or something.
  • The White House, a tiny, nearly transparent reflection, is located below the President; it seemingly says that the man is bigger than the office. He is more real. He is more important. He is the One.
  • The general idea being suggested as our heroic President leads his great humanitarian effort to end all suffering via the health care bill, during this holy season of Lent; runs along these lines:

    Behold the Lamb: Pure and innocent, gentle and meek, giving and self-sacrificing — a stranger, a misfit and a pilgrim in this world of self-gratification.

    “He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth.” Isaiah 53:7

    Had He spoken, his judges would have misunderstood His words.  His message didn’t fit their view of reality.  They couldn’t see beyond their personal wants and their earthly existence.  From their finite perspective, His meekness looked like weakness.  His submission seemed like passivity.

    But the Lamb was strong, not weak, when He stood silent before His accusers. He modeled strength when He chose obedience instead of resistance. His meekness demonstrates, not passivity, but a resilient power to endure any trial by trustful surrender to the will of God.

    The Obamessiah imagery was always a joke to many of us, but now after two full years of watching Obama lie, cheat, and thug his way to his Statist goals, I would think – a very few are buying, anymore.

    Give it up New York Times.

    2. I like the Swiss Flag symbolism in the background. It is reminiscent of his overall plan to turn us into a European socialist country. It is also reminiscent of the Swiss Army knife. Something he can use to stab democrats who vote for the hc bill in the back.

    4. I am still amazed at their total contempt and lack of respect for us. They continuously insult us by treating us like an ignorant rabble under the rule of our betters who must, from time to time, make us do something that we don’t like. But like a dog, we will appreciate it in a vague way and someday will feel a sense of pleasue from it. Since we just do not know what is good for us, they must sometimes take it upon themselves to make our decisions for us and we must submit to them wether we like it or not. For they are wise and benevolent and they are looking out for us. So they shall, as Someone once requested: lead their sheep. Speechless in Seattle …

    5. That picture made me ill. Here’s the thing my husband brought up. Any one with two or more black-eyed peas rattling around in their head knows that is offensive.
      Obama should be on the phone telling these dweebs to quit running such pictures.

    6. I’ve been saying that for almost two years, now.

      I’ve come to believe that not only does Obama approve of such pictures, he and his staff actually encourage them.

    9. To the media and their religion of left-wing politics, this is their messiah. But to be accurate, they should replace the cross with a temple.

      We got a small taste of that as the chosen one stood in front of Greek Columns at a football stadium, preaching moral platitudes with profundity of “Yes We Can!!!” I was frankly surprised few noticed or complained.

      Meet the Obomination…to Caesar they show their allegiance.
