The Obama Cult Of Personality


Peter Hitchens tears into the cult of Obama like no one else:

Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

It already has all the signs of such a thing. The newspapers which recorded Obama’s victory have become valuable relics. You may buy Obama picture books and Obama calendars and if there isn’t yet a children’s picture version of his story, there soon will be.

Proper books, recording his sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.

If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves. It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.

He needn’t worry too much. From now on, the rough boys and girls of America’s Democratic Party apparatus, many recycled from Bill Clinton’s stained and crumpled entourage, will crowd round him, to collect the rich spoils of his victory and also tell him what to do, which is what he is used to.

You couldn’t of asked for better timing of this article:

Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation’s 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

“Yes We Can” planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald’s restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama’s honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.

In the end I believe the only thing the liberals are accomplishing with this embarrassing cult of Obama is setting themselves up for a huge disappointment. What happens when Obama starts to pull back on all those completely insane promises he made? Many will make excuses for him but those on the fringe left will be mighty upset.

For the moonbat who called us non-kool aid drinkers racist, tell me moron, what color am I?

Want to see a racist? Look in the mirror you loon.

You people are idiots. So, we have to deal with a bunch of Ronald Reagan and GHWB edifice renamings, and Obama can’t have one little thing named after him?
You sorry sore losers!

Ummm sal the mental patient, what has obama done that deserves a holiday? Now take your anti-psychotic meds and go back to bed.

Sal, I think that it is fair to say that if and when Obama gets some major accomplishments to his name other than being a President-elect, I will not begrudge him having something named after him. 🙂

let’s hear all about RWR’s and GHWB’s “accomplishments”?
wow, let’s have a coin for them– one on each side!
boy, they are so great great great– greatly idiotic! though not as much as that dumb monkey you people put into office– TWICE!

Daphne, there is no reasoning with the mentally ill. Some of them will snap out of it when obama shows he is carter on steroids and LSD. Sadly, too many won’t.

true that

Thanks for proving my point sal. Now take your meds or you’ll be put in that nice jacket with all the straps and buckles.

anybody who puts George W. Monkey in the Oval Office is the real mental case. Go stew in that, sore loser “Hardly Right”!
Sayonara suckers– i’m heading to more enlightened sites!

To be liberal is to be non-tolerant, closed minded, a follower-not a leader, a coward, a hatemonger, an angry and bitter person, and in most cases, stupid and uneducated to the truth. I was once one of jerks. The libs, now marxists, taught me well when it came to spewing and acting out their propaganda,…following their stupid ways. Now as a Conservative, I am wise, educated, open-minded, energetic, intelligent AND on a mission to un-do all of the damage that’s been done to this country that I contributed to while I was a lib.
Libs beware –you never know.

Sal: You call us sore losers and then come here and dump your bile on the accomplisments of President Reagan?

I’d list all those accomplishments for you but I have the feeling it would be a waste of time. Besides, you probably think winning the Cold War was a bad thing.

Obama getting elected is hardly an accomplisment worthy of a national holiday. Only a cultist kool aid drinker like yourself would think so.

And you call US idiots?

Look in the mirror. You’ll see the King of Fools staring back at you.

Sal, I knew the mention of “the jacket” would scare you away. Enjoy DUNG or your fellow Koslims.

Enlightened…HA! More like delusional. Too funny.

I have a question for all these liberal Democrat posters that are suddenly flooding through the gates storming this site of intellectual debate. What site linked you here and suggested you, “put all the “kookey” rightwingers in their places”? You do know that not all of us here are Republicans right?

I do suppose you meant “tempered” but I fail to see how anyone can count Obama to be the cool cuke everyone has projected him to be.
I see him flaring just under the surface

. And wonder what will happen after he is sworn in and that flare rises.


This is what I see everytime he is asked about his past associations
or is asked a question in regards to his “so called plan”
It seems his blood is boiling under his “cool” exterior.

yes we need prayer
now that he is just beginning to realize
the burden and tough decisions that will face him and be on his shoulders
every hour of every day he holds office.

Oh Sorry guys I reposted something I did not want to.
I do know most of the people in here think they are a breed by themselves but I do feel it necessary to remind are we all humans?
Temper, ego, jealousy, self admiration, pride are all part of a human nature. Something is more in someone and something is less in someone.
When this is known why do we end up criticizing someone when that ill could be a part of our nature.
Parting note my friend’s
A Bee when it enters the Orchards or gardens always looks for nectar. This defines sweetness, health and goodness.
Whereas a housefly even if it enters an Orchard laden with fruit ready to eat it will look for dung and manure which is below the tree no doubt with the filth on its legs it might sit on the fruit to taste the nectar but leaves behind filth and disease.
Now we as humans should behave as
a. The Bee
b. HouseFly

Answer a.
Then we will be healthy in our criticism we will not hurt(filth) anybody’s feelings we will embrace the society and bother more to eradicate all the ills which have gotten in us rather then worrying about the ills of others.
The fights between people on color, beliefs, wealth, power converge towards one focal point “I”
Nobody like me, no one judges better then me my superiority over others is proclaimed how by criticizing.
Superiority of a person is in his characters how he behaves and treats his fellow humans and if he has a talent to write then how constructive is he or she to make people understand how to mend fences between the human race.
As far as the President to be is concerned he has claimed and said very beautiful things but we need to see how the time is going to treat him and where will he take this great nation.
Honestly anyone agrees or disagrees he was very civil and polished throughout the campaign and I hope he remains the same.

Give me a break, Why should they give Obama a Holiday, Because he is the first Black man to be in oval office. Shit if there going to give him a Holiday then give a holiday for every Man that has been in oval office that should just about cover the years time then everyday could be named after someone and we could just have a Holiday every day

So, anybody else get the feeling that, as of 1/20/2009, Dissent will no longer be deemed Patriotic by the Dems and other Obamatons?

I like how Sal the troll left with a sneer about his own superiority and enlightenment. The modern liberal-left has turned into more of a mutual ego-masturbation society than a coherent political ideology. Notice that they mobilize around emotion and their own claims of superiority rather than any intelligible or internally consistent program of policy. It is no accident that they have fallen so easily into the Obama personality cult.

Wow, sour grapes…
The man isn’t even President yet, and you think you can predict the future. I was alright with Bush, until he used post-9/11 emotion to push through legislation that gave more power to the Executive Branch and not only threatened out liberty, but left it open to be further abused. You are doing what you hate the Left for doing, making excuses and pouting. The Republican party chose a shitty candidate and the party is falling apart. Give Obama a chance! Those who are hoping for him to fail hate America, and are nothing but selfish assholes.
