Rick Wiles may be the single most ridiculous person in right-wing talk radio (and imagine the competition for that title) but he’s not resting on his laurels. Burnishing his reputation for utter stupidity, he brought on an “expert” in all that “Bible code” bullshit that was discredited long ago to prove that Obama is, in fact, the Antichrist.
Wiles: So either Barack Obama is the Man of Sin, commonly known as the Antichrist, the Bible doesn’t say ‘Antichrist’ it says ‘Man of Sin.’
Wright: That’s right.
Wiles: Either Barack Obama is the Man of Sin or he is strongly connected to the Man of Sin or the spirit of Antichrist.
Wright: That’s right. Those are my only — I’ve tried to look at this as an investigation not with an agenda, by the way, but what I’ve come up with those have to be the possibilities. Let’s just face it, he’s got a ring on that says, ‘There’s no God but Allah and Mohammad is his Messenger.’ Now, by definition, that’s Antichrist.
His ring says no such thing, of course, proving once again that no claim, no matter how absurd or thoroughly discredited, ever dies in the right wing fever swamps.
He also found a “strong connection” between Obama’s name and the word “Beast,” which as Wiles notes, just so happens to be the nickname of the presidential limousine!
The two also shared their belief that Obama is likely the Antichrist because a fly once landed on him, something that only has ever happened to Obama. “And there’s always the photos that you see everywhere with the flies landing on his face,” Wright told Wiles, “I can show you in the codes where he’s got a strong connection to the Lord of the Flies, Beelzebub.”
I’ll give it an 8.4. The degree of difficulty just wasn’t high enough to make it the wingnut medal round.
