Obama Aide Showed Funny YouTube Video Once! Outrage!

Think that fundamentalist Muslims are weird to get upset about a cartoon of the prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper? That’s nothing compared to the outrage among fundamentalist Christians here in the United States:

They’re saying that Barack Obama cannot be allowed to become President of the United States because Lawrence Lessig, who served as a technology advisor to the Obama presidential campaign, once showed a funny video, directed by Javier Prato, which showed Jesus singing a disco tune, as an example in a corporate lecture to Google employees.

The blog NoBama quotes an article that hyperventilates,

“An Obama adviser denies he had blasphemous intent by including in his lectures a video of a ‘gay’ Jesus Christ sashaying nearly naked down a city street to the tune of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” only to get run over by a bus.”

The same article says that Lessig is a “digital Communist” because Lessig argues against intellectual property rights online. I came across word of this “scandal” as I was reading another article that suggests that Barack Obama ordered three members of his former church to be murdered so that he could cover up a homosexual orgy network in which Obama supposedly participated. That article blasts Lessig for being “openly homosexual”.

I say that if right wing critics of Barack Obama can go around being openly insane with their conspiracy theories, what’s wrong with someone being openly homosexual?

There have been a lot of people who have worried that if Barack Obama becomes the Democratic presidential nominee, the Republican Party would come out with devastating attacks that Obama could never survive. Now, Barack Obama is about to become the Democratic nominee, and there have been no devastating attacks.

All we get is this sort of stuff – a technology advisor once showed a 30-second movie that was made by somebody else that a few humorless twits regard as blasphemous. All the Republicans have been able to muster is to spray Obama with a special brew of right wing silly juice.

If you’re curious about the video, here it is:

    Well now you’ve blown it, F.G.. You’ll never be able to run for President now!

  • Oh damn. I showed the video! Yeah, but you looked at it. Surely that disqualifies you – and are you wearing an American flag lapel pin?

  • Tom

    Priceless. i especially liked the “bus” ending.

  • Joe

    You ought to do a debunker article on Obama’s association with Bill Ayers and Imam Hassan Qazwini. Those would be really funny too i bet!

  • Joe, now is a time for Americans to decide if they want to associate themselves with kooky conspiracy theorists or with a credible presidential candidate who can actually take America out of the mess John McCain and George W. Bush have put the nation in.

    You know that the idea that Barack Obama is a Muslim or a terrorist, or a gay crack whore, or Communist Abortionist Baby Blue Whale, or whatever else these conspiracy theorists are claiming, is absurd.

    Time to put away childish things, Joe.

  • Joe

    Oh I forgot don’t question the black guy. It wasn’t childish when Dan Rather’s made up the National Guard Story about Bush, It wasn’t Childish when they dropped the coke story on Bush either. Nor was Trent Lott, Larry Craig or any of the other numerous character assassinations that the left has enacted deemed childish… Sorry for the assassinations comment I know you all get touchy about that too.

  • Joe, there’s a difference between questioning Barack Obama and embracing goofy conspiracy theories that Obama is a secret Muslim from the planet Mars.

    I’m sorry to see that you’ve sipped the Republican silly juice.

    We expect to seriously question Barack Obama over the next eight years, just as we’ve seriously questioned George W. Bush. If you look around IrregularTimes.com, you’ll see that we’ve already written some critical pieces. You also, if you would take the effort to look, would see that we didn’t jump on the anti-Larry Craig sex bandwagon. We think he’s a creep because of his politics, not his foot-tapping ways.

    When we criticize serious people, we try to be serious in our criticism. We won’t accuse John McCain of being a secret traitor who is going to swear an oath on a book by L. Ron Hubbard.

    We think that approach is laughable and harmful. It’s too bad you won’t adopt the same standard.

  • Joe

    This whole site is goofy conspiracy about the right and christians taking over the country. I truly and honestly come here every few days for a laugh and to directly confront the weirdos of our country.

    The only thing harmful is that no evidence of Barracks lies or questionable dealings will be taken seriously here. Kudos on the Larry Craig story how bout Trent Lott, Bush, George Allen or any other ‘childish’ character attack. It sucks but the Republicans are just learning how to play Liberals games. By the sounds of this blog the left seems to being doing it to themselves as well. FYI not a Republican, not a Bush supporter, not a McCain supporter, not even a Clinton fan. Just tired of the droves of lemmings following BHO’s bullshit.
