RUSH: If you haven’t heard this, you haven’t heard these things batten down. We have two sound bites on Sunday. Donna Brazile, otherwise reasonable, restrained, has lost it. The whole Democrat Party has just lost it. She’s on Wolf Blitzer’s Late Edition. Wolf says, ‘The issue of being a community organizer. Now, we know a lot of those community organizers are in the big urban areas and there’s some suggesting that when the Republicans, whether Giuliani or Palin, went after Obama for being a community organizer, there was a racial overtone there.’ First off, would somebody please explain to me, how can there be a racial overtone when Obama is black? He’s already black. There’s already a racial overtone here brought to us by the Democrats. It was the Democrats in the primary who played the race card consistently. This idea here that the Republicans are calling him a community organizer is race related, he’s the one that called himself that! He’s proud of his community organization efforts. Racial overtones? Once again a cliche, a mindless twitter cliche from the liberal Democrat playbook of 50 years ago that’s alive and well, the Democrat Party, Drive-By Media surfaces. It’s Obama who’s talking about his community organizer work, as though he is proud of it. Racial overtones? At any rate, here’s Donna Brazile.
BRAZILE: Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate was a governor. And perhaps they should understand the role of a community organizer is to help people in distress.
RUSH: Now, this is just grasping at straws, folks, we’re shooting fish in a barrel here. I mean, they’re not even making this a competition. Jesus was a community organizer? Pontius Pilate was a governor? Sarah Palin is going to crucify Obama? Is that what we’re supposed to take out of this, because Obama is the new messiah? Jesus Christ was the first messiah. Now Obama is taking his place, he’s The Messiah, he’s the savior. Pontius Pilate was a governor? The only thing Pilate is remembered for is murder. We are comparing the governor of Alaska, who is only qualified, say the Democrats, because she has not had an abortion, which is murder, of murder. Pontius Pilate was a governor? They expect this to play to who? And from this bunch, that just insists on separation of church and state, and it happened on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday. Representative Steve Cohen, Democrat, Tennessee.
COHEN: I submit to you, Mr. Speaker, that the parties have differences, but if you want change, you want the Democratic Party. Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus, who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor.
RUSH: Somewhere in the Obama campaign, somewhere in the Democrat Party, somebody has come up with this. Somebody has come up with this line, and they’re all out there using it. Could anything illustrate more vividly how genuinely out of touch the Democrat Party is? You talk about mean-spirited. And, by the way, the great thing about Palin — and there are many things about Palin — but the great thing about what is happening with her or what she’s causing, so much of what’s happening in this campaign is giving the total lie to everything the liberals have told us that they are for, that they respect, that they are going to champion and promote. They have been forced into trying to destroy the very things they claim they’re for: racial equality, female equality, all this stuff. No, it’s not about race, it’s not about women. It’s about liberalism. No. Pontius Pilate did not wear lipstick. That I know.
RUSH: I want to go back here. Donna Brazile, ladies and gentlemen, on CNN’s Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer last Sunday.
BRAZILE: Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor, and perhaps they should understand the role of a community or-organizer to help people in distress.
RUSH: All right, FDR was a governor, folks. I guess he was Pontius Pilate, too. Germans might think so. Japanese might think so. Bill Clinton was a governor. Bill Clinton was a governor. Barack Obama was a community organizer. Bill Clinton was governor. Pontius Pilate was a governor. Let me tell you something, Senator Obama. I know Jesus Christ. I pray to Jesus Christ all the time. I study what Jesus Christ did, and said, all the time. And let me tell you something, Barack Obama: You are no Jesus Christ. I say the same thing to you, Donna Brazile, same thing to you, Steve Cohen: Your guy is no messiah. Your guy is no Jesus Christ.
You’re going to try to tell us next that Mary and Joseph were homeless all because Joseph forgot to guarantee the American Express card at the inn, guarantee the reservation, show up homeless, get kicked out to the manger. Jesus is born. All of a sudden, he organizes 12 guys, said, ‘I’m going to do some miracles here, but I can’t do them for everybody. You’re going to need health care. You’re going to need government-sponsored health care, and I am going to promise to cut taxes on 95% of the people in Israel.’ Is that what we are next going to be told? This is just over the top. It is pathological. There is so much hatred coursing through these people’s veins that it is impossible to understand and calculate.
RUSH: Senator Obama, I should also pass along to you, sir: I’ve read the Gospels. I’ve been searching the Gospels a lot lately in fact for any evidence that Jesus Christ supported infanticide as you do, and I can’t find any such references to Jesus promoting infanticide. Nor do I find any references to Jesus Christ suggesting sex education be taught to four- and five-year-olds. But I’m still looking, sir, in the New Testament, and I’ll let you all know if I come up with anything.
RUSH: Our old buddy Steve Gilbert at Sweetness-Light.com has traced back the first known — via Nexis search — the first established, the first we can find reference to the phrase ‘Jesus Christ was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor.’ It was a blog poster by the name of Laura on a Washington Post blog on September 4th. So once again, a left-wing kook, a member of the lunatic fringe of the Democrat Party posts something on the Washington Post blog called The Fix, by the way, and mainstream Democrats pick it up: Donna Brazile, Steve Cohen. And as I said at the close of the previous hour, ladies and gentlemen, studying the Gospels, as I have, I have yet to find any reference to Jesus Christ promoting infanticide as Senator Obama does, nor am I able to find any reference in the Gospel to Jesus Christ suggesting that sex education, comprehensive sex education be taught in kindergarten, as Senator Obama has supported. So you Fruit Loops out there on the left that are coming up with what you think are catchy phrases and forcing this stuff on your so-called mainstream Democrats, you are falling down a hole. You are into a dry well that you are never going to be able to climb back out of. And I encourage you to keep digging. Between this and Biden, it’s Christmas. It is Christmas every day here on the EIB Network.
