Artist Creates Obama's Triumphal Entry ~ Obama Riding a Donkey!

Obama's triumphal entry: Gentle, riding on donkey

Artist creates messianic parade as 'adorers' wave palm fronds



Amid the pomp, circumstance and celebration of welcoming a new president, an artist in Iowa created an inaugural parade sure to draw attention, even hundreds of miles from Washington, D.C.: Barack Obama, riding on a donkey, complete with waving palm fronds and "Secret Service" escort.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan declared in October that when Obama talks, "the Messiah is absolutely speaking." But artist Matthew J. Clark's parade – marching Obama through the streets of Des Moines in similar fashion to Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem – takes the messianic imagery even farther.

The Bible describes Jesus' procession into Jerusalem in the 21st chapter of Matthew as the fulfillment of the prophet Zechariah's words, "Behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass," or as the New International Version paraphrases, "gentle, and riding on a donkey." As the celebrated Messiah entered the city, the Bible also tells of adorers spreading their cloaks at Jesus' feet and waving palm fronds.

Charlotte Eby, columnist for Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, witnessed a strange sight earlier this week, as a sculpture of Obama marched down Des Moines' Locust Street in similar fashion.

"Progressing slowly down Locust and holding up traffic was a rubbery Barack Obama sculpture saddled on the back of a donkey," Eby writes. "A pair of black SUVs led the procession and two more trailed behind, Secret Service-style. A couple of the SUVs were decked out with tiny American flags."
Eby continues, "A few men led the Donkey down the street and a woman made her way along the sidewalk, keeping up with the procession and handing out palm branches to the few perplexed onlookers who had gathered on the sidewalks to see what the fuss was about."

But... but the prophet Mohammad rose to heaven's brothel and it's 71 virgins on a winged horse, not on a donkey! Watch it or a jihad may ensue...

In response to media efforts to deify Obama (efforts that continue today) this parade is appropriate. Problem is, I am unsure of whether it was intended as sarcasm or adulation.

For certain, this display DOES symbolize the Socialists' worship of Obama as their "messiah", a term also used by Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan when referring to Obama.

Socialists drive Christianity out of a society to achieve this exact result - the deification of their dictators. Chairman Mao, Fidel Castro, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Barack Obama...

Mark, they sure are and where the heck are the people In Iowa fighting this kind of thing. It shocks me how so few stand up and say NO this is not right.
One day they will complain and it will be too late.
