  1. Russell Wiseman, Tennessee Mayor, Assails 'Muslim President' For Pre-Empting 'Peanuts'

    First Posted: 12- 4-09 10:57 AM | Updated: 12- 4-09 11:29 AM

    In case you didn't know, President Barack Obama's West Point address, in which he announced his intention to escalate the war in Afghanistan, pre-empted the broadcast of A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC. As it turns out, at least one person was crackpotted enough to believe that the whole point of the address was to prevent this cartoon from being shown. That person is Arlington, Tennessee Mayor Russell Wiseman. He actually exists. And he made the mistake of bleating out his strident, weird take on the matter on Facebook, and is acting all aggrieved that people noticed.

    His Facebook message read in part:

    Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim [sic] president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation [sic] about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'....

    First off, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is a twenty-five minute dissertation on Jesus Christ being the Son of God. More importantly, in this time of giving, I'll point out that "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is available on DVD from Amazon for $13.99. Maybe one of Wiseman's Facebook friends (maybe even the one with a conscience who sold Wiseman out to the press out of a higher obligation, perhaps instilled by his or her belief in Jesus Christ) should purchase it for him, and he need never watch a speech about a serious topic like war again.

    Wiseman wasn't done expounding on the subject, by a long shot. He went on to suggest that "you obama [sic] people need to move to a muslim [sic] country," and adding, "you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different........"

    Yes. Many, many fine citizens of this great nation would be disenfranchised! Just like...Jesus would want?

    That has to be faked, or intended to be comedy.
  3. You've never been to the South if you think this was fake.
  4. Religion is such a convenient hook on which to hang your hate hat. The beauty is in the self-serving interpretation.
  5. Obama has no feelings in denying the children of America an animated tribute to the joy of Christ and Christmas.
    For a speech he could have made 3 months ago.
    Obama is on record for not participating in Christmas. Why? maybe its a Muslim thing for him.

    In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.

    Celebrating birthdays is an innovation, and it is imitating the non-Muslims whom Allah forbade us to imitate. So, it is not permissible for Muslims to imitate them in this matter. We have already stated that this is forbidden in Fataawa 605 and 3837.
    As regards gifts, this is something permissible and desirable as it leads to some religious objectives. However, to give gifts on this occasion- birthdays- is not permissible

    Lol, that's desperate, Mercor.
  7. I'd bet a tall stack that Offal777 had to first make sure this mayor was white before posting this.
    Otherwise he'd never dream of mentioning it.
  8. You would be wrong, once again...

  9. Al Gore and Bill Clinton are from the South aren't they?
  10. ...yes they are, so?
