Perhaps it shouldn’t be so surprising at all that Biden’s speech about our third imminent existential threat* was shouted in front of a backdrop that resembled the glow of a hellish conflagration.
After all, Obama gave his 2008 Dem nomination speech before Greek columns, but they were not just ordinarily arranged columns, they were a mini mock-up of the Pergamum Altar. Notice the long row of columns in the back behind high central steps with columned walkways coming forward from both corners.
A massive structure built in 200 BC on the highest point in Pergamum in Turkey, the city which Jesus referred to in letter to the Church at Pergamum, saying “I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold firmly to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.” This altar itself is said to be the Throne of Satan.
This structure was unearthed and put on permanent display in a museum in Berlin in the early 20th century through the rise of Hitler until the end of WWII. And then in 1945 it was moved to Moscow where it remained under Stalin’s tenure, before being returned to Berlin in 1959, where today it is once again on permanent display in a huge museum built to enclose it.
Considering that when Obama was on his inaugural world “apology” tour, he specifically went to Berlin and specifically to see this ancient altar, perhaps it is less remarkable that 0bama’s “Greek columns” are patterned to resemble the Pergamum Altar.
