One of the worries I have for my blog is that maybe it will become outdated. Back when evil control freaks ruled the land, the idea that erotica could be equated with moral terrorism seemed almost inevitable. I could easily see Internet sex bloggers being jailed for corrupting the high standards of sexless white people. Now that Obama rode in on a Unicorn and saved the free world before he even took office, I worried that maybe my blog title will become a relic.
Luckily Newsweek came to my rescue. They have a nice long essay on why some people think Obama is the Anti-Christ. I’m not making that up. A major news magazine gave a platform to crazy white people so they can explain why the end times are coming. Apparently the United States condoning torture, wiretapping U.S. citizens and killing millions of Arabs to get some oil wasn’t the sign of the Beast I thought it was. Apparently to have a real Anti-Christ you need to be brown and promise a middle class tax cut.
My favorite bit-
Strandberg says Obama probably isn’t the Antichrist, but he’s watching the president-elect carefully. On his Web site, he has something called the Rapture Index, a calculation based on signs and prophecy of the proximity of the end. According to Strandberg, any number over 160 means “fasten your seat belts.” Obama’s win pushed the index to 161.
Did you get that? According to some guy’s made up chart system, Obama is pushing the Rapture Index to 161. It’s like a Jenga mountain made of lies, false assumptions and fake math. It is the Eight Wonder of the Stupid World.
With that in mind, I think it’s safe to say that fear, paranoia and most of all, hatred of anything different is going to be at an all time high. Wohoo. Erotiterrorism is going to be topical for at least another 8 years.
