MSNBC guest host Michael Eric Dyson on Monday night chided conservatives like Glenn Beck for “literally” demonizing President Barack Obama by comparing him to Satan.

On his Twitter account Sunday, Beck noted that the Satan character from The History Channel’s new mini-series The Bible looked quite similar to Obama.

“By this morning, ‘ObamaSatan’ was trending on Twitter,” Dyson complained. “The History Channel released a statement calling it ‘unfortunate that anyone made this connection,’ but that hasn’t stopped right wing conspiracy sites from turning out delusional posts further comparing our President to the devil.”

He went on to assure viewers of the liberal network that Obama was not in fact the devil.

“Let me get this straight,” Dyson said, “the devil is a man who fought to reform healthcare so people with preexisting conditions can’t be denied coverage, a man who’s set to end a decade of war, a man who’s fighting to raise [the] minimum wage to help America’s struggling workers, a man who puts the interests of the middle class ahead of the interests of the privileged?”

“Sounds to me like some people need to get off the Internet and brush up on the good book.”
