A Political Moment with Lil Wayne and John Hagee

From the June 2008 issue of Blender Magazine, an interview with Lil Wayne:

BLENDER: Who do you want to take the White House?

LIL WAYNE: Barack, I guess, but I can't made a real opinion. I ain't watching no debates. I just want my people to understand that Hillary and Barack are not running for president--they running to be able to run for president. There's a Republican party, too--we ain't about to win fool! A woman or a black man versus and old white dude? F**k no! They gonna be like, This black **s n***a trying to come in my Oval Office? F*****k no. The world about to end in 2012 anyway. 'Cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is gonna end as we know it. you can see it already. A planet doesn't exist: There's no more Pluto. Planes flying into buildings--and not just the Twin Towers, but dudes who play baseball are flying planes into buildings. Mosquitoes bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president!

Wow. Awesome. Articulate.

Zionist/Dispensational mega-church pastor John Hagee has been in the news recently too as he has been forced to apologize for anti Catholic remarks. In a recent rebuttal to public criticism, Hagee states:

“In my zeal to oppose anti-Semitism and bigotry in all its ugly forms, I have often emphasized the darkest chapters in the history of Catholics and Protestant relations with the Jews,” Hagee wrote. “In the process, I may have contributed to the mistaken impression that the anti-Jewish violence of the Crusades and the Inquisition defines the Catholic Church. It most certainly does not.” -The Kansas City Star

Nice save. As McCain's primary endorsement from the Religious Right, is it possible that Hagee realizes his weighty words could turn Catholic voters away from pro-war McCain? Or is he sincere?

Or, is Hagee's endorsement more of an eschatological tactic and less of a patriotic commitment? Says Hagee:

"If we can get 50 million evangelicals in America to join hands with five million of the Jewish people in the United States of America, it will be a marriage made in heaven." -VOA

A match made in heaven indeed, when Hagee's outlook on things apocalyptic requires Israel's possession of the entire biblical land of Palestine in order for the end of the world and the return of Jesus Christ to take place, as he feels is according scriptural prophecy. McCain's involvement in the Middle East and helpful hand to Israel just might speed things along in Hagee's mind.

Two men, both comical at times, both with strong convictions that the end is near, both with strong political affiliations (however polarized they might be), both utter words that influence many, and both in one blog post, perhaps for the very first time).

Lil Wayne does have a point about the Mayan Long count. the universe will be born anew via the 'cosmic birth canal'. winter solstice 2012. did a paper on it in college. creepy

Kenni B said...

2012. Will we last that long?

crackers and cheese said...

These are some interesting quotes, especially the bit about the Mayan calendar! Lil Wayne may be a bit misguided, but he's sorta educated in some areas, I guess.

I just now noticed that you live in Toledo. Have you been to Columbus much? I'm going there this weekend for a concert. Any recommendations of other things to do in Columbus, or good restaurants to eat at? Thanks! said...

What about Pastor John Hagee's million dollar ministry scandal? How come that is never mentioned in the media? For more info, google search "open letter to pastor hagee". Pastor John Hagee is Sr. Pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio TX and is on TBN "Christian" TV.

nate said...

Vince--i know of a woman who always talks about this...apparently she believes the space aliens who colinated the earth are returning in 2012 via the cosmic birth canal.

Kenni--I've been wondering the same thing lately.

crackers and cheese--the only time i have been in colombus was for business, so I didn't explore the city much at all. Last time I was there I ate at a little jewish deli that was pretty good. I don't recall where it was at though. I have a horrible sense of direction. Sorry, wich I could help more!

freegoodnews--I stopped by your blog, and plan to be back. Hagee was mentioned a little while back, maybe six months ago, in an issue of time...but only briefly. The article talked about irs crackdown on unethical money handling and wealth storage of tv evangelists.

I guess it takes a lot of money to bring on the apocalypse! (haha)

It is interesting to note that list of sins that the vatican rolled out a couple of months ago include a sin centered on the unethical accumulation and hoarding of wealth. I wonder if the pope had guys like Hagee in mind?

Oh Lil' Wayne...The Block is Hot but apparently the lights are off.
