Rios: Obama Sent Subliminal Messages to Muslims in SOTU

In the grand tradition of the Worldnetdaily trotting out a body language “expert” to inform us of what Obama really means (the opposite of what he says, of course), Sandy Rios of the American Family Association used her Secret Wingnut Decoder Ring to figure out that Obama was sending subliminal messages to Muslims in his State of the Union speech:

Rios didn’t pick up on the caller’s mistake, but she did use the opportunity to claim that Obama was spreading Muslim messages in his speech when he used the word “pillar” to describe the foundations of American leadership in the world: “The other thing he said that I caught, he has done this before, you know there are five pillars of Islam, and he used the term ‘pillars’ again in his speech last night.”

“It is just really interesting, language can actually give us some insight, choices of words,” she said.

I bet he used the word ‘of’ a bunch of times, too. And I bet he uses the number five sometimes. Wake up, sheeple!

    The Romans and Greeks used pillars in their architecture. And look at all of the buildings in DC, lots of pillars. Because Muslims!

  • eamick

    T. E. Lawrence wrote a memoir called Seven Pillars of Wisdom, therefore Obama is Lawrence’s illegitimate child. Or something. And don’t get me started on the Pillars of Hercules.

  • Artor

    OMG! Caterpillars are Muslim! They don’t really turn into butterflies, they turn into suicide bombers!

  • theschwa

    SOTU? More like STFU, amirite, Sandy??

  • Dr X

    I thought he was communicating with in code with Catholics.

  • dingojack

    Nah, the secret messages were for Christians generally; there are 107 mentions of pillars in the King James Bible (31 in Exodus alone).

    OMG!! God is really a demon moon god!!

    “Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars…”


  • dugglebogey

    Holy shit, they used “pillars” when they built my house too!

    Tonight I’m going home and burning that motherfucker down! I can’t live in a muslim house!

  • caseloweraz

    The word “pillar” appears exactly once in the transcript of his speech. Rios is grasping at straws.

  • D. C. Sessions

    Rios is grasping at straws.

    No, silly. Pillars are much bigger than straws, even if they are shaped somewhat alike.

    “And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold: and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.” Exodus 26:37, describing the construction of the tent-door of the tabernacle…

    Dingo “shittim wood”

    No Bad Language!!!


  • Johnny Vector

    And the number of thy pillars shall be five…

    Subliminal messages, what an idiot. I mean if Obama could do that…….What?……Oh!…….MUST BOW TO MECCA NOW………….

  • Crip Dyke, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden

    Actually, Obama uses the word “Path” far more than the word “Pillar”.

    Given that he’s also used the number “eight” quite often, it’s clear that he’s actually a Buddhist triple agent invading the radical muslims by pretending to be their secret agent in the US who pretends to be the US president dropping not-so-pretend bombs on people.

    And Belgium and the Netherlands actually use a system called “pillarization” (Verzuiling) to support multiculturalism in their societies. They must be secretly under Sharia law, without even knowing it!

  • busterggi

    Yahweh supposedly led the Jews out of Egypt while appearing as a pillar of fire – cripes, Yahweh is a mooslim!

  • Kermit Sansoo

    Of the many things these idiots say which baffles me, few are more baffling than the idea that Satanic baby powder companies, secret Muslim presidents, Communist sleeper agents, etc. would publicly wear symbols, make gestures, and use words with Hidden Meanings® that can be easily decoded by any high school dropout with a secret decoder ring.


    Do they think that those evils ones in the secret circle cannot communicate in private? They seem to get such a kick out of hidden messages. I guess if you can’t do science, then this is the only way they can pretend to themselves that they have a clue about how things work.

  • timgueguen

    Actually Rios is right. There are subliminal messages in Obama’s speech. But she has the target wrong. The messages are aimed at her and her fellow travellers, and make them say all sorts of stupid things. I betcha that rascally Obama is sneaking them into Rios’s own broadcasts.

  • abb3w

    They’d probably also find it suspicious if he avoided using the word “pillars” in speeches.
