Opinion: The Ten Commandments According to Obama


super-obamaI. Thou shalt have no God in America, except for me. For we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am the chosen One. (And like God, I do not have a birth certificate.) SOURCE

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore. SOURCE

III. Thou shalt not utter my middle name in vain (or in public). Only I can say Barack Hussein Obama. SOURCE

IV. Remember tax day, April 15th, to keep it holy. SOURCE

V. Honour thy father and thy mother until they are too old and sick to care for. They will cost our public-funded health-care system too much money. SOURCE

VI. Thou shalt not kill, unless you have an unwanted, unborn baby. For it would be an abomination to punish your daughter with a baby. SOURCE

VII. Thou shalt not commit immorality if you are conservative or a Republican. Liberals and Democrats are hereby forgiven for all of their infidelity and immorality, but the careers of conservatives will be forever destroyed. SOURCE

VIII. Thou shalt not steal, until you’ve been elected to public office. Only then is it acceptable to take money from hard-working, successful citizens and give it to those who do not work, illegal immigrants, or those who do not have the motivation to better their own lives. SOURCE

IX. Thou shalt not discriminate against thy neighbor unless they are conservative, Caucasian, or Christian. SOURCE

X. Thou shalt not covet because it is simply unnecessary. I will place such a heavy tax burden on those who have achieved the American Dream that, by the end of my term as President, nobody will have any wealth or material goods left for you to covet. SOURCE

  1. I am totally embarrassed that you have chosen to publish this tripe. I am no supporter of Pres. Obama, but neither can I countenance such red-neck, brainless nonsense. And to do it while satirizing the Aseres HaDibros no less? This is simply unworthy of Jews, who are supposed to be steeped in the ethics and intelligence of the Torah.

    This diatribe — from a JEWISH media leader — makes us look like thoughtless, mindless idiots. I just can’t get over it. Oy, Klal Yisrael is in such trouble.

  2. Are all the sources from the Patriot Update?
    Haven’t checked it out but do wonder if this is something we should be comfortable aligning with.

  3. Bullseye! You got it right on the nose, Matzav, Keep on telling it like it is. Everyone should be informed so no one will be surprised when the good old US turns totally Communist.

  4. Tzippi (comment no. 6) asked: “Are all the sources from the Patriot Update?”

    The entire piece is from “The Patriot Update,” a far-right political media organ. These people have a history of playing dirty. Look at “commandment” no. 2 for instance: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore.” This implies that Obama is a total egotist who believes that his image belongs on Mt. Rushmore. Except that it’s totally false. Here is a report of the event, which occurred during the campaign last year:

    “Upon being informed that the press corps was making a stop at nearby Mt. Rushmore, the senator decided to tag along. At half past 10 p.m. he trudged to see the national landmark under a full set of stars.

    “‘There’s something about seeing it at night that’s spectacular,’ Obama said. He was asked if he’d like to see his face on the mountain with Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt.

    “‘I don’t think my ears would fit,’ Obama said, laughing. ‘There’s only so much rock up there.'”

    Obama was making fun of himself, showing a self-deprecating sense of humor. But the right-wing political hacks falsely turned it into a self-aggrandizing moment…which never happened.

    The other nine “commandments” aren’t much better. They’re all just so much tripe. A people who are supposed to emulate Hashem’s middah of emes should not associate itself with such nonsensical sheker. It’s embarrassing. There is enough legitimate cause to be concerned about Obama’s policies. Getting involved with right-wing clap-trap just destroys our credibility.

  5. Poster #10 is correct. Regarding “commandment” 1, keep in mind that President Obama was not the first president to state that the US is not a Christian nation. That distinction goes to John Adams, who wrote “the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion” (Treaty of Tripoli).

    If you’d like to meet another great American who believes that Obama has no birth certificate, you can contact James von Brunn.
