Liberal Georgetown University Professor and MSNBC pundit Michael Eric Dyson compared President Barack Obama to Jesus Christ in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Melissa ‘your children belong to the government‘ Harris-Perry.
“Let me tell you what,” said Dyson. “Eric Holder, one of, what, five most powerful black figures ever. Obama, Holder, Clyburn, William Gray. These figures have been extraordinarily important in politics. But, you know, I’m a Christian preacher, and God finally said, “Look, I can’t send nobody else. I got to go myself.” And I ain’t sayin’ that Obama is Jesus, but for many of his followers, he is.”
“I’m saying, show up, dog, and show us you are seriously committed to the interests of your people, because your presence says something even louder than your words.”
