Is Barack Obama’s Mother-In-Law A Black Witch?

Dave Chappelle in white-face?Yes she is! Read it on the Internet, we did! Apparently Marian Robinson, Michelle Obama’s mother, performs Satanic “Afro-Hispanic” witchcraft rituals, in the White House. Barack Obama is piping mad, because how would this affect his IMAGE? Poorly! This story and all of its quotes are true. Jane Mayer of the New Yorker is one helluva reporter and would never make up something this incendiary. Oh… what is that, Intern Riley?… It’s from Townhall, not Jane Mayer of the New Yorker?… THEN IT’S EVEN TRUER.

The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House.

[...]

This is how it happened. Marian Robinson became increasingly frustrated as her husband, Fraser Robinson, was hobbled by multiple sclerosis in the late 1980s. The family pastor prayed with her and counseled her, but “she turned to Santeria in a desperate hope,” Michelle’s friend said. “Michelle put her foot down when she heard that her mother took her dad to ceremonies where they did spells and trances, and sacrificed animals, chickens and goats I think. But Marian was desperate and kept going anyway, even when her husband was to sick to go with her. I don’t think the president knew anything about this earlier because it was before they met. Michelle and Craig (her brother) wanted to close the book on this and never talked about it again after their father died in 1991.”

Oh, those black people!

This is exactly how Barack Obama talks when he’s angry, too — with turns of phrase like “witchcraft mumbo-jumbo.”

The president was “totally in favor” when his mother-in-law moved into the White House as a live-in babysitter for 11-year-old Malia and 8-year-old Sasha. Obama reportedly told Michelle that her mother will have to go back to Chicago if she does not “stop this witchcraft mumbo-jumbo immediately” and ordered the Secret Service to not allow Marian’s friend to return to the White House.

Jane Mayer of the New Yorker has been scooped!

    Santeria will be the public healthcare option. Gives that “a chicken in every pot” a whole new meaning, don’t it!

    And for those things not covered by Santeria, there is always Part D, aka Voodoo.

    Let’s say this is true, just for shits and giggles. My great aunt goes to est seminars (or Landmark or whatever they are called now) does that mean I’m an idiot just because my elderly relative is an idiot?

    Obama first became aware of his mother-in-laws witchcraft shenanigans when she kept bringing home-made fried chicken EVERY DAY.
    “Gee, mah, where do you manage to get a steady supply of dead chickens?”
    “Oh, that’s just this thing. What are the Braves now? 0-7?”

  10. Paterlanger

    And then the Secret Service agent who escorted Marian’s friend out of the white house fell to the floor holding his stomach and yelling “Colebras…colebras!!!” and the next day Hillary had a pimple that exploded, releasing hundreds of little spiders. So then Josiah Bartlett came back to the White House to set everything arights. The end.

    [re=390825]mattbolt[/re]: Atkinson, no doubt, deliberated the [sic] for hours. Having already picked up on enough of the Ebonics to recognize that some black lady was already being quoted verbatim, would her readers accuse her of classism? Though it would protect her journalistic integrity to acknowledge the error, surely it would be too much. Had not the black people already suffered enough?

  18. V572625694

    Notice that the distinguished journalist Jim understandably mistook for Jane Mayer is actually Kristen Atkinson, whose bio on the site reads, in toto: “The Obamas’ tricks must be exposed.”

    Jeebus I couldn’t agree more, and this is a healthy first step. Her email address is kristenatkinson@illinois.usa.com, but when you go to that domain, there ain’t no domain there. Good thing Kristin’s protected herself from the fake Jews who will now go after her!

    I might not like Marian Robinson killing live chickens in the name of some crackpot religion, but I’ll defend to her death her right to kill live chickens in the name of some crackpot religion. The same goes for Mitt Romney’s Alien Space Jesus, and the bedside shrine Rush Limbaugh has erected in honor of his pharmacist.

    Let’s not overreact. Mrs. Robinson could wipe out the deficit singlehandedly if she just volunteered to sell government-approved curses on enemies for $10,000 a pop. Imagine a letter from the White House “Dear ___, At your request we have put a curse on _____. If he/she does not turn into a gerbil in two weeks, as requested, please do not hesitate to contact us again.”

    As for me, I’d like to request that a horrible curse be put on Rush Limbaugh (not fat or stupid because they’ve obviously been done already). His curse should be a high squeaky voice, like Minnie Mouse.

    Santeria is not Voodoo. They both derive from African religions, but they’re not the same. And their belief systems, while I don’t buy them, make more sense than believing that a rabbi whose mother never had sex rose from the dead after three days and then ascended into orbit.

Even the freakin WINGNUTS aren’t buying it! Oh sure there are some a-holes on there, making ooga-booga jokes or quoting scripture (but sadly not the LOLcats version of the Bible); but it seems it’s running 3-to-1 in favor of calling it hooey.

    Santeria is not a Satanic cult. It is a syncretic, Afro-Hispanic (mostly Cuba, but spread out of Cuba to other nearby island and to the U.S.) religion that itself derives much of its beliefs from Ifa, a Yoruban religion practiced mostly in Nigeria and Benin. It is a cultural/religious legacy of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

    As with many other religions (Judaims, Islam, Buddhism, etc) it has a corpus of ethical stories/verses/parables/chapters etc. In Ifa’s case, it’s the Odu Ifa (256 in all), many with almost indistinguishable ethical teachings as those found in Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, etc. It does not teach evil, hate, or Satanism. It does teach love of each other, community, and oneness with nature.

    As for animal sacrifce, judaism and other religions include animal sacrifice as part of their traditions and no one calls them Satanic. Please do not get your ideas about other cultures and other religions from the immature and ignorant minds of Hollywood producers, fearful Christian ministers, or the general public.
