From the "you can't make this stuff up" department--several fringe fundie sites are harping on the occasions when flies have buzzed around Obama's face. Apparently they think it's proof that the president is the devil.
The discussion was most recently sparked by Obama swatting at a fly buzzing around his face while he announced the nominations of Mary Jo White to head the SEC and Richard Cordray to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It's at least the third time a fly has buzzed around the president with the cameras rolling. In 2009, Obama actually killed a fly on camera. And in 2008, Obama had a campaign appearance interrupted by a swarm of flies.
WorldNutDaily's Aaron Klein did some scouting, and found several discussions about whether Obama is the devil based on the number of times he's had to deal with flies. The logic? One of the names for Satan is "Beelzebub," which means "lord of the flies" in Hebrew.
A posting at the popular Free Republic Web forum discusses Beelzebub and asks, “Is the White House fly infestation evidence of demonic presence and influence there?”So does that mean that anyone who has flies buzzing around them might be the devil, huh? Like I said, you can't make this stuff up.
The End Times blog named Obama the “Lord of the Flies.”
The blog connects Obama to Beelzebub, writing, “This really isn’t an academic question. The Lord of the Flies is real.”
“I feel like I am watching a horror movie and the secret evil character is revealed by the evil signs around him,” the post reads.
