What the devil?

Yeow!

Yeow!

Simply amazing. Demonizing conservatives is common enough in Hollywood. Demonizing a liberal president is not, especially one as semi-divine as The One.

But it happened this weekend on the History Channel (formerly known by its informal names the Hitler Channel, the Aliens & UFO Channel, or the Nostradamus Channel).

HBO had to issue an apology last year for placing a replica of George W. Bush's head on a pike. Let's see what happens now as devotees of the current occupant of the White House become aware of the History Channel's perversity.   Forget the comparison to the devil.   That will probably elicit fewer outraged complaints than the fact that this show had the audacity to represent him in a hoodie.

From The Daily Mail:

Why does the devil in 'The Bible' look exactly like President Obama?

Sunday evening's episode of the History Channel's hit series 'The Bible' threw up an awkward coincidence when viewers noticed that Satan bore a remarkable resemblance to President Obama.

Twitter exploded into life during the airing of the latest edition of the Mark Burnett-produced series with most noting the striking similarities between the 44th President and the devil played by actor Mehdi Ouzaani.

The show has been a surprise hit in the ratings, with the religious mini-series attracting 13.1 million viewers on Wednesday - topping television leviathan American Idol's 12.8 million viewers on Wednesday.

Right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck first pointed out the eerie similarity on Saturday, tweeting, 'Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?'

Others were simply struck by the clear physical match.

Much more HERE.
