Lloyd Marcus is a Tea Party spokesman and singer/songwriter. He is engaged in the Tea Party to fight the big one – according to Marcus the Tea Party is really combatting the Anti-Christ himself: “I believe the battle being fought in America today goes beyond politics; right vs left. It is a spiritual battle; good vs evil. ‘For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places’ (Ephesians 6:12). The mindset of the American left is a spirit of Antichrist which is man making himself God. Before writing me off as a Bible nut …”, which is going to be rather hard. And Marcus sort of fuels that fire: “Understanding this reality will explain much of the left’s behavior. Because they believe man is God, in their insane arrogance [ah, the self-awareness], the left think they can fix everything; legislate equal outcomes and even save or destroy the planet. Make no mistake about it folks, we are in a spiritual battle.” That sounds vague; perhaps Marcus has a specific example? “Specifically, what about Sarah Palin inspires such visceral hatred from the left? The word is ‘wholesome’ [no, it isn’t]. For the most part, Palin promotes love for God, family and country. She is passionately determined to thwart Obama’s plan to ‘fundamentally transform America’. While realizing Palin is human and does not walk on water, Palin epitomizes heartland principles and values embraced by most Americans. Thus, we are Palin and Palin is us.” Indeed. At least he brought an otherwise daft and contentless rant to a rather fascinating conclusion.
Diagnosis: Bible nut.
