Fox & Friends: How Is Godless Obama Hating Our Lord Jesus Today?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Fox & Friends would like to have a word with President Barack Hussein Obama, about how he (probably) killed Christ (besides how he also did 9/11):

Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson claimed that Obama has “called for a moment of silence, but has not called for the word God. So some people are asking, why is God being left out again?” Later, her colleague Steve Doocy said: “On this most somber of days, get this. Does the President of the United States call on people to pray for those lives lost? No.”

But, hmmmm … is it true? (Spoiler: It is not true.)

Take it away, Godless heathens at Media Matters!

Fox was referring to a presidential proclamation declaring September 11, 2012, to be Patriots Day. [...]

Obama called on “God’s grace” and asked people to pray for the lives lost in a separate official proclamation declaring the days between September 7 and September 9 as national days of prayer and remembrance in commemoration of the September 11 terrorist attacks:

Here is some Presidential Proclamation at ya:

On September 11, 2001, in our hour of grief, a Nation came together. No matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family. This weekend, as we honor the memory of those we have lost, let us summon that spirit once more. Let us renew our sense of common purpose. And let us reaffirm the bond we share as a people: that out of many, we are one.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 7 through Sunday, September 9, 2012, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the United States honor and remember the victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones through prayer, contemplation, memorial services, the visiting of memorials, the ringing of bells, evening candlelight remembrance vigils, and other appropriate ceremonies and activities. I invite people around the world to participate in this commemoration.

They do have a point though: Barack Obama said “God” but he never said “Jesus,” because Barack Obama is the major general of the War on Christmas.

Burn him.

I'd pray for the entire cast of Fox and Friends, but there's only so much God can do…

They think if they mention God often enough, the Big Being in the Great Beyond will begin paying attention to them, which, of course, has not happened. What is this God thingy anyway?

PsycWench September 11, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I got the impression they mention God the same reason that one mention the wrath of the other parent to a teenage child: you actually don't think the parent will do anything but it gives you something to frighten the child with.

People ask me to pray for them or family or friends- because I do attend services regularly(sometimes more than once a week) but at a synagogue so we know I helped Barack Obama kill Jesus.

God said to Abraham, "kill me a son," Abe said "man, you must be putting me on" God said, "no," Abe said, "what?" God said "you can do what you want, Abe, but the next time you see me coming you better run"

No better words were ever spoken by a good Jew/Christian/Jew/Christian ever.

The hedgehog, according to the Bund. 19.28, is created in opposition to the ant that carries off grain, as it says that the hedgehog, every time that it voids urine into an ant's nest, will destroy a thousand ants, (Bund. 19.28; cf. Saddar 57).

Or the room just goes silent.

A room that had included "friends."

The pursuit of reason often seems a lonely endeavor.

Tequila Mockingbird September 11, 2012 at 12:44 pm

You are wrong, my friend. It is fact that Jesus was born 400 years ago in a shitty barn behind Jethro’s Dogfight & Chum Shack in Arkansatucky, Missibama. His unwed virgin teen mom said, “It was God what done gave me the babytimes!” Then everyone rewrote all the schoolbooks to reflect the fact that our nation’s greatest president was in fact Ayn Rand, and it is told in churches from sea to shining sea every Santa Day. If you disagree with this highly-edited and re-re-re-re-re-re-written version of ancient Mesopotamian myth, then you are a communiss. Now return to your stockpiles of ammo and your “Mission Accomplished” banners and the Thomas Kincaid (RIP) prints that comprise your holy spank bank. And Happy 9/11 Day, also!

chicken_thief September 11, 2012 at 12:51 pm

FOX's response would be to complain that Obama has left out the Holy Spirit — "You can't have a trinity with just the Father and the Son!"

The Trinity? That's a little "Roman" for my taste.

JustPixelz September 11, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Statistically, we were not safe on 1 day out of the billion* days he was POTUS. That's mostly safe. Like Romney's plan to cut taxes for trillionaires is mostly stupid.
_________________________
* Apparently, he was actually in office 2,922 days (about one for each 9/11 victim). it only seems like 1,000,000,000.

SayItWithWookies September 11, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Well, according to the Old Testament, whose authors set the precedent for this kind of crap, The LORD punishes the evildoers in his own time — so that pious king who got killed in battle at Megiddo (I can't remember his name right now and don't feel like looking it up) soon after his coronation, it was punishment for the acts of the previous king who was worldly and made Judea prosperous but ignored the Temple strictures and the Levites who were its priests.

So anyway, by that logic, 9/11 was The LORD's punishment for Bill Clinton. You know, just like Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson said.

Chichikovovich September 11, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I think we have a few decades to wait for the Clinton punishment. 9/11 was God's response to Grover Cleveland's illegitimate child. He's a busy man.

If god is as all powerful as the Xtians claim he is then he doesn't need to worry about whether or not a single man (even if he is the most powerful (and interesting?) man on earf) says his name.

Or this god fella is one insecure asshole getting his minions to force others to call out his name (when not fucking.)

jodyleek September 11, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Exactly. And furthermore, why the hell would I pray to a "god" that is all-powerful and would presumably have the power to thwart the 9/11 attacks? Wouldn't I be guilty of murder if I stood by and watched my child being murdered if I had the power to stop it?

The Santa Claus-like Xtian "God" is a lie that is perpetrated by the powerful for their own benefit.

After the actual 9/11 terrorist attack, when George W said the best way the American people could help would be to go out and spend money, that's exactly what I did. Bought two suits at Talbots that very weekend. A Republican colleague and I laughed about this once, because he went out and bought a new car for the same reason. We stood behind the President and honored his request.

It makes me really angry and sad to think that if – God forbid! – something like September 11 were to happen on Obama's watch, these Fox dicks would totally make it his fault, the Rethuglicans would totally make it his fault, and the public would not respond in the same unified way they did before.

Fox News and their ilk are ruining this country, IMHO.

No way could GeeDumb have gotten his war in Iraq without Fux News. In fact, he owes his pResidency to his cousin who was working at Fux during the 2000 election. He is the one who called Florida for GeeDumb and all other news sources followed suit because that's what they do. That became the meme. Bush won FL, but as we now know, he actually did not.

Just imagine if Gore had fought harder. I know, I know, Lieberman blows it for me too.

All sales are final my friend. No returns, no exchanges, no fucking way.

NPR had some English clergyman on the wireless Sunday morning complaining that the Church of England has become the butt of jokes and is more like a Monty Python sketch since so few people attend church in the UK.

It's a thoroughly secular country with an agnostic and an atheist as PM and Deputy PM.

I don't know what makes me angrier/sadder/more in need of a good, stiff drink of communion wine: That these idiots engage in a baseless attack of the President on his supposed lack of fealty to their invisible sky king, or that the President feels the need to pander to them by actually engaging in acts of fealty to their invisible sky king.

PinkoPopulist September 11, 2012 at 12:31 pm

At some point it has to stop becoming news that the comedy-variety hour Fox & Friends is blatantly lying to its lobotomized viewers, who undoubtedly lap it up with the enthusiasm of a mutt who has spent the last 24 hours staggering through the desert.

Thank you — the surfeit of piety that pervades 9/11 (at my workplace no less) gets my bile up to the point where I'm in danger of taking it out on some poor undeserving shlub who's at the wrong place at the wrong time. So this was a great opportunity to blow some of that off so I don't become a danger to others.

Anyone else tired of the miserable wallowing we do on 9/11? Instead actually giving a shit about the first responders by ensuring they get healthcare, we sit around and compete who can say God more while counting how many prayers for the victims there are. Move on, Ameriduh.

MadBrahms September 11, 2012 at 1:07 pm

Our fixation also has the effect of further diverting attention from / interest in the thousands of people killed or disappeared in the name of "justice". Self-pity justifying self-righteousness, rinse, repeat every year.

The first responders healthcare thing remains a puzzle to me. Not only is it actually right, it's also the sort of thing that one would think would make a good photo op. I don't get it.

freakishlywrong September 11, 2012 at 1:16 pm

A comedian with a fake news show had to shame the (R-assholes) in congress to pass that thing. They were fully on board to let them just perish. And then whinge about the victims.

JustPixelz September 11, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Two people who worked for my (large) company were killed on 9/11. I didn't work here then, but it still strikes close to home. They were on-site with a customer in an office and killed. I don't want to forget that or move on.

I am tired of the sanctimony, hypocrisy and — particularly — how Republicans wave the bloody shirt to say Democrats will stand by and watch terrorists carry out their plots. Above all we should remember we are Americans who value freedoms at the expense of our safety. How else to explain 15-20,000 gun deaths each year, bail, search warrants, 75MPH speed limits.

freakishlywrong September 11, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Media Matters falls right into Fox & Friends' trap:

September 7 was Friday. Do you know who prays on Friday? (I'll give you three guesses among the major monothestic traditions)

Not to mention that any decent person knows that the entity-who-should-not-be-named-for-fear-of-burning-in-hell-for-blasphemy only accepts prayers for the dead on the anniversary (on the Gregorian calendar, tyvm) of their death/mortal wounding.

Me neither.

The questions is, of course: What would Dubya do? Fortunately, thanks to the google machine and Little Green Footballs, the answer is "not mention God or prayer" in almost all of his 9/11 Proclamations.

The word "true," it means something different to them. Even when pressed on things like this and confronted with direct refutation, they will insist that what they said while "technically" inaccurate, is nevertheless an accurate statement because it refllects some kind of symbolic truth that they honestly believe. Obama may have said the words, but he cannot have been sincere, they will say, because his "otherness" (they will say Kenyan anti-colonialist community organizer socialist, but they mean "niggerhood") simply makes it impossible to believe in and revere God the way they do. In other words, if he denies he's a witch, that proves he's a witch. Niggers, oops, I mean witches, are tricky that way.

FakaktaSouth September 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Man I hate that word. But I am waiting for the day, surely to come soon (as they say) when ol Gretch or the douche just stands up and yells it repeatedly, madly, until they drag them off set.

I am sorry, but I insist on translating their deliberately deceitful language. Its what they all have to hold back, thats for sure. One of them will just fucking lose it and go off like Michael Richards, except it won't just be the worst fucking joke ever, it will be the honest expression of the hate I tend to think Richards was referencing, and not actually feeling.

prommie September 11, 2012 at 1:48 pm

You know, its really just faith-based reasoning, faith-based reporting. In their minds, things are not established or proven by objective facts and logical inferences drawn from objective facts. They believe that they can establish a proposition through BELIEFS that they hold. They cannot distinguish between objective fact and subjective belief (many narcissists I have known seem to have this difficulty, they are so self-centered that they cannot even conceive that any person could believe anything different, that all disagreement is per se the result of ignorance or mendacity). And they really do not understand the concept of a logical operator, or even of a formal syllogism. They take facts and link them with vague connectors which really just express their doctrine, emotions and beliefs, and yet they think these conclusions to be irrefutable. I am using a lot of big words, I guess, when what I mean is they are fucking stupid.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 11, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Let's be charitable here. Fox just wants people to be reminded so that they can pray to God during important times. And who knows when an important time might be? This is a diverse society, and we need to respect the wishes of those who believe in God. I think the government should immediately provide funding and secure land for the construction of religious houses of worship that will openly call people to prayer. Loudly and regularly. Like maybe five times a day.

And they should build one close to the WTC site too. That will make the Fox people happy, and really, what's the harm?
