Our old pal “Coach” Dave Daubenmire had another of his classic inane rants on his little internet show the other day, claiming that Barack Obama was an “emissary from hell” who was only president because of election fraud. Oh, and he was God’s judgment on us.
“Barack Obama was from hell,” he said. “Barack Hussein Obama was the absolute, most devastating thing to ever happen to the United States of America … He was an emissary from hell and still was able to win the election, twice.”
Daubenmire insisted that it was impossible for an “unknown guy” who has “three Muslim names” to be elected president just a few years after the 9/11 attack—which he asserted was “a whole lie on its own”—insisting that his “election” was due to “a lot of fudging and fooling around” with the results.“He was the worst thing to ever happen to America,” Daubenmire said. “He still hasn’t gone away because he is an emissary from hell; he is a spiritual emissary from hell, I’m telling you … It probably was the judgment of God. How else could we have been so deceived?”
The worst thing ever to happen to America! Not the Civil War, which killed half a million people. Not the Great Depression. Not the slaughter of tens of millions of indigenous people. No, the worst thing to happen to the country was a president he didn’t like. This would make a strong version of the argument from evil, a proof that a just and benevolent god does not exist. If a just god created this world, stupidity on this level would cause physical pain.
