Stop Obama's Socialism rally in KC

Clint Anderson (speaking in the video clip), a deacon at our church, organized a protest in Prairie Village today in order to bring attention to the growing dissatisfaction regarding President Obama's economic policies and practices.

Check out this awesome clip from a local news station about the protest.

Check out some of these great signs below.

My favorite is "OBAMANOMICS: Trickle up poverty!" Very clever.

Hmmmmmn, if Brownback steps down in 2010, and we can get Clint Anderson elected to the Senate, he would be qualified to be the GOP nominee. Already he has the community organizing skills that propelled Obama to the top. Moreover, since he is the political antithesis of President Obama we would have a clear choice in 2012!

Paid for by the Anderson for President Committee: Tony Felich Chairman.

All this is fine and good and probably true but I don not think this is what the church should be known for. It will turn people off because it perpetuates the idea that I have to be republican to be a christian, and that is not true. It associates the church more with political ideology that than that of the coming of the kingdom of God.

It is more of the ideology of the zealots in the first century, that the Jews were to take back Israel from Rome in the name of God. This plan eventually got them kicked out of their land until 1948.

Qayaq- Rick's a bit zealous, for sure.

I wouldn't do anything with "Republican" on the label, so don't worry about me.

The rally Clint organized has nothing to do with Republican/Democrat or otherwise. What he did in leading the rally wasn't even some kind of mission "of the Church" or by Christians, as such.

Clint was simply acting as a faithful American citizen regarding what he sees his government doing.

Rick brought up the GOP thing, not Clint or the rally.

God is not a Republican, and God is not a Democrat, God is God and I am Rick saved by His Grace. I am a Zealot when it comes to sound social and fiscal conservative political principles and policies. My comments in part were not prompted by or solicited by Mr. Anderson or Rev. Felich and to my knowledge Mr. Anderson has not announced a run for any public office, and Rev. Felich is not a Chairman for any political candidate or cause. My comments earlier are in the genre known as parody or political satire something that is obviously a lost art to many in this country. If my comments in any way appear to be or seem to be disparaging to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, then to Him and Him alone I apologize. However, considering you are from the Socialist Soviet Republic of Wyandotte County, I can understand how any conservative who is a Christian may sound like a Zealot. To your leaders in Wyandotte County and in Washington, D.C. I quote the Gipper, former President Reagan for your edification:

How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

P.S.: The Kingdom is not only spiritual, but social, political, and cultural!

This transformation process starts when God, through Christ, transforms individuals into a community that will love God and each other and will seek to transform the world around them. This transformation work is manifested when the community of the Kingdom use their gifts to further Christ's Lordship over all aspects of life on this earth.

Wow, that was really cool! Saw a bunch of Redeemer folks in that news clip. Hats off to Brother Clint and to Fox 4!

Qayaq said...

Rick. WOW! There is no reason to get personal and disparage where I live just because I do not agree with you.

Reepicheep said...

Qayaq, I don't think Rick meant to disparage you. He was using some satirical parody, but I'll let him speak for himself.

Rick Calohan said...


Grace and Peace to you in the name of the Lord! Amen.

If my comments offended you in anyway, my apologies, you have a lovely race track in WYCO. ; )
