The left-wing politician
Barack Obama has been worshipped like a God since he emerged in 2007.
The worship does not seem to be based on any accomplishments.
In fact, he was worshipped before he had done anything at all.
It seems to me like a mass delusion.
Obama is just a bog-standard left-wing defeatist.
I cannot see why people are so excited about him.
"He ventured forth to bring light to the world", Gerard Baker, The Times, July 25, 2008,
ridicules the Obama worship.
"And so it was
the Child ventured forth - for the first time - to bring the light unto all the world.
He travelled fleet of foot and light of camel, with a small retinue that consisted only of his loyal disciples from the tribe of the Media."
Why young people think the neo-conservative ideas of
destroying religious fascism and bringing freedom to Arabs and Muslims
and why people think Obama's ideas of abandoning foreign Arabs to jihad and genocide
are inspiring and idealistic,
is something I guess I will never understand.
So these videos leave me cold. To say the least.
It is entirely content free.
It never even tries
to explain what this "change" is all about.
So Obama is young, sexy and black. So what?
What's important is his policies, not what he looks like.
What's important is, for example, how he will deal with the global Islamist enemy.
And since all the people who don't want to fight the global Islamist enemy
(like the makers of this song,
who are anti-Iraq War)
seem to like Obama,
it's obvious that this "change" is about nothing good.
Among the celebrities featured in this song
is the gay-hating bigot
who sang that
gays should be killed
(shot, and burnt alive):
"Boom bye bye;
In a batty boy head;
Send for di matic an;
Di Uzi instead;
Shoot dem no come if we shot dem;
Guy come near we;
Then his skin must peel;
Burn him up bad like an old tire wheel"
The "Yes We Can" song.
The Reagan version.
From Cuban-American Pundits.
"Obama's no Reagan. Reagan inspired talking about the greatness of America
not the greatness of "change,"
Reagan talked about the promise of America,
not the promise of "hope."
But the biggest difference is that Reagan was always talking to us as fellow Americans not as his followers. Reagan was about America. Obama's above wearing a lapel flag. Reagan was an optimist about America. Obama's a doom and gloomer."
The Boy George song
song "Yes We Can".
I like the tune, but what's the message?
Drug-addled brains support Obama?
Well, I guess they had the last laugh since they won.
The Wit & Wisdom of Barack Obama, Andrew Ferguson, Mar 2008, points out that Obama's speeches are nothing new
but just the standard meaningless boilerplate of presidential campaigns,
both Democrat and Republican:
"Onward they plod, these old warhorse phrases, until Obama climbs to the climax of his stump speech. Head bowed, brow furrowed, eyes flashing, he announces that we "will choose unity over division [Jesse Jackson, 1992]. We will choose hope over fear [Bill Clinton and John Kerry, 2004]. And we will choose the future over the past [Al Gore, 1992]." In so doing, we will overcome our "moral deficit [Bush, 2000; Gore, 2000; Newt Gingrich, 1994]" by "bringing people beyond the divisions of race and class [Clinton 1992]" because the "story of our country [Ross Perot, 1992]" or the "genius of our country [Bush 2000]" or the "wonder of our country [George H.W. Bush, 1988]" is, as Obama says in 2008, "ordinary people doing extraordinary things [Perot, Bush, Bush, and Ronald Reagan, 1984]."
Talk like this is the elevator music of politics, soothing and inoffensive and unavoidable. Obama has had the unbelievable luck to attract listeners who seem to think he's minted it fresh."
The Daily Show, Jan 2009, brilliantly points out that what Obama said at his inauguration,
praised as if it was the wisdom of the ages,
is the same as
what Bush has been saying for years, receiving only abuse in return.

Barack Obama commemorative plate. "His confident smile and kind eyes are an inspiration to us all." Search

"I Voted for a Black Person".
Hilarious spoof of the above.
"The Presidential Pledge", Jan 2009.
Original here. "I pledge to be a servant to our President and
all mankind because together we can, together we are, and together we will be the change that we seek."
Fucking hell, is all I'll say.
It's like Maoism.
My favourite bit is when some tattooed thug pledges
"To care for America's elderly".
Is that a promise or a threat?
"Missing are pledges not to kiss the ring of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and other pledged enemies of America. ... Nor are there pledges to take seriously that we are at war .. and that our precious and under-appreciated military is fighting an avowed and evil enemy - so that, among other things, Hollywood can continue to make decadent crap that actually motivates our enemy to fight us harder".
Iowahawk's alternative transcript:
"TOGETHER WE CAN.
TOGETHER WE CAN OBEY.
DIVIDED WE ARE INSIGNIFICANT.
BUT TOGETHER WE CAN BE A MOLECULE
ON OUR PRESIDENT'S CHEEKBONE,
FADING AND MELTING AND SHRINKING
INTO THE ONE UNIVERSAL GLORY OF HIM.
I found out who the tattooed thug is.
He's a pop singer.
He's probably no threat to the elderly.
"Hope: The Obama Musical",
a musical worshipping Obama, from Germany, 2010.
The musical says
"is presented less on a political level, but rather as an emotional person who fights for a new, more forgiving and peaceful world and a better future. ... The people are given new hope by the new spirit of the age."
Mother of God.
"On this site, President Barack Obama first kissed Michelle Obama."
Report of plaque unveiling, from
August 16, 2012.
This is not The Onion.
Incredibly, this is real life.
There are hilarious comments, including:
"Where is the rock for Obama getting to 2nd base located?"
Perhaps more disturbing than the many Americans (and others) worshipping Obama
is the thought that Obama himself has an equally high view of himself.
"In this election - in this moment - let us reach for what we know is possible. A nation healed. A world repaired. An America that believes again."
"generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal".
"This is the moment ... that the world is waiting for.
I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."
Reagan biography on whitehouse.gov as at May 2012.
What in the name of Jesus is that at the end of it?
Under Obama, every presidential biography on whitehouse.gov
gets a little piece of
pro-Obama bullshit added to the end of it.
Narcissist in Chief
The only bright note is that as soon as a Republican takes over whitehouse.gov,
all this pathetic Obama propaganda will be deleted.
He sure does love himself!
Obama tweets on
31 Jan 2013 about his favourite topic - himself.
"He is a
community organizer like Jesus was.
And now, we're a community and he can organize us."
- Left-wing activist
I don't know what's worse
- the claim that he is another Jesus,
the claim that a
is a good thing,
or the claim that the job of the President is to "organize" the people.
"As for running for president, look, there's a guy in office right now who is smarter than almost anyone you know, who's nicer and who has more compassion than almost anyone you know. And he's having an almost impossible time governing. Why would anybody volunteer for that job?"
- Incredibly handsome Obama-worshipping actor
George Clooney, Aug 2011.
His "contribution" to the struggle against the jihad was
"as time passes, you start taking it for granted that a guy named Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States.
But we should never take it for granted."
President Obama worships himself, Mar 2011. What an ego. What a narcissist.
"There's nothing new about Obama: been there, done that. Nothing could be less hopeful, or less of a change. He's the land where we grew up, with its union bullies and marginal tax rates and government automobiles and general air of decay all re-emerging Brigadoon-like from the mists entirely unspoilt by progress. It's like docking at Ellis Island in 1883, coming down the gangplank, and finding everyone excited about this pilot program they've introduced called "serfdom.""

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists:
I love debate.
I love ideas.
But the Western left
and their friends the Islamic right
do not return the favour.
Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block.
See Who blocks me on Twitter.
I will debate almost anyone.
Stick to ideas and I will debate you.
But I do have rules.
See Who I block on Twitter.
Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022:
I am on Twitter at
Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016.
You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas.
Starting in 2016,
Twitter became increasingly broken.
It became full of reporting and bans and censorship.
In 2019, Twitter even started
for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed.
By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.
Twitter is saved, 2022:
bought Twitter and started to end the censorship.
It looks great so far.
Twitter seems to be saved.
