During the twilight hours of February 12, 2013, a tall, slender, dark skinned Muslim by birth and Kenyan by origin skillfully saunters his way towards the pulpit of America and majestically slips into his appointed station. Peering around carefully and seeing nothing to the contrary and being confident that all were there at his bidding, he proudly proclaims himself as this nation’s moral and righteous leader. Millions of citizens watch in awe as this eloquent oracle and factitious “citizen” begins to unveil his directive. A message sent by his god and dreamed by his father is addressed to the weary, dazed, yet hopeful inhabitants of a rapidly declining yet once great nation.
As he continues to speak, it seem to not matter that very little is known about this usurper. How was this alien was so quickly and mysteriouly anointed as the head of his host country? No matter, just look at him; he speaks with such confidence and clarity. It seems that none within earshot can resist this piper’s tune.
The time has come, he utters, to bring about the leveling of justice for all. Whom, he challenges, would dare to disagree? “Now is the time to correct the misdeads of the past”, he proclaims; and all are required to invest their possessions, skills and creations in him and him alone. He will determine their proper disposition.
Doubt him not, he cautions, as he is the chosen one whom has been enabled to “fairly” distribute goods and services in a “fair” and trustworthy manner. Come one, come all, come the needy, the barren. It is he whom is your savior and he alone who will be the final bearer of your fate.
As his message continues, the fate of a once great nation has now been revealed for all to see with great wonder and amazement. What was, you see…no longer is, and that is good, the poser brags. We will no longer be the arbiter of nations nor the light on the hill having now fairly apportioned our blessing to the world.
As he commences his oracle, the stranger carefully steps out of his pulpit to thunderous applause by the throng within the room and millions who have watched in awe at his unparalleled wisdom. What a wonder and anomaly; especially given what precious little morsels we have been fed with regard to his true identity.
A divine appointment many claim; otherwise, why would he be trusted as the sole proprietor of intention?
And what of those that would dare oppose this “imposter” as they claim? Alas dear brothers, your time, it would appear, hath all but expired; as not only is our presenter a gift from his god, but a final harbinger from the Creator God.
God help us all.
