Oh, the drama: predictions of “Obama’s America”

Iran has nuked Israel, the Boy Scouts have been disbanded, and the guns of loyal American patriots have been confiscated.

Thus, back in 2008, forecast the right-wing evangelical group Focus on the Family the state of America in the present day. In keeping with the apocalyptic Tea Party hyperbole that confuses “tyranny” with losing an election, it can fairly be said that those with their hair thus on fire have a poor track record as fortune tellers.

Instead of unionized ACORN thugs kicking down the doors of God-fearing freedom lovers and seizing their guns on behalf of Eric Holder, President Obama has moved zero new gun restrictions and it’s the first time folks are allowed to pack heat in our national parks – which, Mudpups will forgive me for noticing, aren’t exactly the same things.

Here, for further chuckles and in the full grandeur of its entirety, is the breathless Focus on the Family letter from 2008 (PDF), wherein our erstwhile evangelical friends go all Southern-Belle-with-a-case-of-the-vapors.

Here’s the video version:

    Alaska Pi! You are amazing!!!! When I vote on election day I am carrying my usual driver’s license, county voting card and the new state voters card which is supposed to verify everything else I have and used for years. Come on!!!!! And if I am turned away for any reason from the polling place I have used for decades,I hope 60 MInutes will be there with cameras blazing!

      Mageen!
      Glad you came over for a visit here!
      Come back often and be sure to come back and tell us how your voting experience goes.

    Colorado has voter registers who give phony information, then file the papers for only Republicans- You Tube clip went viral. Then the Pious GOP fired the dirty organization with ties to Romney, claiming they can’t abide cheaters.

    Right…

    Looking forward to the debate at DU, even though traffic in the south burbs will be one giant snarl. Staying home with doggie Mocha and a big bowl of popcorn- and a Fat Tire 😉

      What a Joke!!!! The only way they can win is CHEAT!!!!!!!
      We have all been invited to our Democrat Hdgs tomorrow nice. Will watch the debates together and bring snacks. I Can’t wait.
      Hear that Rommney will have something written on his hand by ANN! Poor thing needs his mommy.

    I’d forgotten about that ridiculous, laughable “letter from October 2012.” Too bad the idjits still believe it, four years later.

  6. slipstream says:

    I heard the same thing in 1992: “If Clinton is elected, they’re gonna come and take away all yer guns.”

    And the same thing in every election since then. Those guys are really, really slow learners.

    • thatcrowwoman says:

      To which DH Happy replies, “My guns? Not My guns. I’m an Army veteran. But YOUR guns, yeah, they’re coming for Your guns (you ignorant chickenhawk).”

      hahahahahacawCawCAW!

      Frankly, I’m more concerned about my Vote than my guns, ’cause cheaters gonna cheat. It’s about all they’ve got left. Check your voter registration status and GOTV.

      Also, too, it’s the 30th annual Banned Books Week, sponsored by the American Library Association. Yes, I DO love my freedom to read, and I exercise it daily.
      Here’s a message from this year’s co-chair, Bill Moyers. Yes, That Bill Moyers.

    Voter ID law in PA deemed no-go for November election! So the recent celebration over purposeful voter repression in PA by GOP…UNDONE!

    WOOHOO!

    I actually contacted our local voter registration board in my county (a GOP county) with questions about what ID I would need to vote – five people gave me five different answers. So, yes, the plan was to turn away voters.

    I asked if it mattered that, while I was in the same voting precinct, it would matter if I was at a different address in the same precinct. (I had recently moved, but on an adjoining street. The county said I was fine b/c in same precinct) DMV gave me time to get new license.

    Two of the people I contacted said I would be OK with my ID – no address necessary – but one of those said should have- just in case – a “utility bill for a new ID.(You never know, better to be safe)” Three said I would have to be re-registered with a new address in order to vote or get new license – one said I’d need “proof I lived here,” one said I needed to bring “proof of address” when I voted, and one suggested I just bring birth certificate, my license, and utility bill/rent or mortgage bill (Wait!! To VOTE??)

    If the local voter registration people in a small city in central PA were this confused, imagine how the big city registration/DMV people were????!!

    So again WOOHOO!

      Pi,

      I tried to read that deranged letter, to the deranged, at the link provided by AKM, but I got stuck pretty quickly into it, on the Biblical comment: “You will recognize them by their FRUITS….”

      • Alaska Pi says:

        😀
        On mealy fruits with rotting cores
        Grown in the dark cave of fear
        Set these aside and take up
        Only those fruits grown in the open
        In the clean air of Reason
        And watered with Love

        For me, it worked to read it as darkly humorous science fiction.
        A couple places I had to tamp down major WTF?! s to keep reading though…

          It is my most fervent wish that you should overcome your obvious shyness and let is know how you really feel.

    Whatever that dude/dudette was smoking,I gots to get me some. Dang,he/she said right at the end that this could be reproduced for non-political use. Certainly sounded political to me. Animal Farm meets Animal House after a weekend at Porky’s. With this person’s pent up sexual frustrations it is no wonder so many of the flock get flocked.
