The Dark Side

I have lots of wisdom in the Idiot Box over the decades of my life. It was and still is my solitary companion that doesn’t judge me.

It doesn’t bully me. It doesn’t tease me mercilessly, like humans did in my childhood.

It was my refuse from the word. Still is.

It has also been there for me in my darkest days.

It saved my life through the medium of “Doctor Who”.

It taught me to treat people correctly on “Star Trek”. The IDIC is an idea I agree with.

Though the way things have been going lately many might doubt that.

After all, I am a white male. That makes me evil already.

Then you add in Tea Party-style Conservative and you have 85% evil.

I’m redeemable, because I’m not a Republican. 🙂

Nor am I a Christian. But I believe in a lot of it. I just have a problem with humans. It goes back to the days of childhood. My mother said I was a happy child for many years. Then I interacted with other humans, poorly. I cared too much and it hurt me.

That led to my near suicide 30 ½ years ago.

But I get ahead of myself.

This blog is about the Dark Side. The Fear leading to Anger and the Anger leading to hate. And the hate leading to suffering.

In short, The Democrats.  No, not really, but it was too good a line to pass up. 🙂

And what has this country been doing for the last generation…suffering. Especially nowadays.

I have been gone closer to the Dark Side than I’d care to admit even now but that doesn’t mean my core values are wrong. Just presented wrongly, much most of my life.

Did you know that one of the reasons I could never get a girl to notice me? Because they all thought I was Gay. Now keep in mind this is the early 80’s, the Closet was still firmly locked.

Why? Because 80% of my friends were Gay at the time. I never even considered it until someone pointed it out to me. Even then I didn’t care. It wasn’t relevant to me then or now.

But because I have a problem with the overly strident Gay Mafia that say you will whatever we say regardless of what you think that means you are automatically a bigot for disagreeing with them and there is no discussion. Summary justice has been served. The End.

And that’s wrong.

Righteous sanctimony disguising tyrannical power greed needs to be called out.

The little cherubs in college who are protesting people having opposing views at all and that they should be censored for it is wrong.

Government is fire. It will burn you if you try to sleep with it. That bear will eat for its own selfish appetite.

This is NOT the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of Any religion, and mocking or hindering the free exercise thereof is required and sanctioned; or abridging the freedom of LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE speech, or of the LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE press; but abridging those who are not us is always in the interest of the good of society; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble to worship the LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES and protest it’s enemies, any assembly otherwise in opposition must therefore be “terrorism” “bigotry” or “racism”, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances against ANYONE who defies us, has exercised “White Privilege”, and to seek “social justice” at all costs.

That is The Dark Side.

It seduces you will the power and the sanctimony of “righteousness”.

Its also the Dark Side to just stand back and throw snark bombs at everyone.

That would be me.

But when someone goes all holier than thou about their “tolerance” and “diversity” and I happen to mention Indiana Pizza Joints and Wedding Cakes and they get all offended and unfriend me, well maybe I was closer to the truth than was comfortable.

HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT!! The messenger. J

If Conservatism has any chance against the Forces of Imperial Political Correctness, then it must not be seduced by The Dark Side of which most Republicans have been.

I need to lead a better life for myself, because I still have little faith in humans based on Decades of personal history and overall history itself.

history2

When invoking the words of Dr. Martin Luther King are considered racist and manipulative by The Political Left you know there’s a real problem.

The thing you can do for a child is let them own their own mistakes. Not coddle them or ignore the problem.

And the best thing a Conservative like me can do is show the Light in the Darkness. Not feed the Darkness with my own.

I still believe in my core values. I still think Political Correctness is an Orwellian abomination. I still think the American Political Left is a mental disease that is nearly incurable so must be defeated.

But much like the Empire, the Left’s Stormtroopers have concept of being wrong. They are bringing ‘enlightenment’ (tolerance, diversity, inclusion) to unwashed heathen masses. So they are not going to listen. So we have to defeat them another way.

Ideas. The most powerful weapon in universe.

We must do. There is no try.

So I will check myself into Snarkaholics Anonymous, because being short tempered and emotional and acting on impulse is what Liberals do and don’t want to be that anymore. But I will retain my sarcasm, my pessimism, and my cynical streak that is as wide as the universe but not as deep because that is who I am. But unlike the holier than thou I am capable of reform, of regeneration.

What I claim is to live to the full the contradiction of my time, which may well make sarcasm the condition of truth.–Roland Barthes

I may be getting old and out of touch with the Microagressions, The Departments of Diversity & Inclusion,and “offense” behind everything, but I am far from useless.

He’s no Jedi, and neither am I.

But I also don’t need to be a Sith either. I will leave that to the Democrats and The Imperial Ministry of Truth.

Just How Stupid Are You?

We have the MSDNC racist in residence saying Darth Vader is a racist symbol and George Lucas and Theatres worrying the Lightsabers and Facepainting might be a terrorist trigger.

The legendary director asks Norwich Stars Wars Club UK not to brandish their toy weapons in public so as not to cause alarm

Film legend George Lucas has appealed to Star Wars fans to keep their lightsabers and blasters holstered in order not to cause alarm following the Paris terror attacks.

“We’re fine with that, it’s probably a good idea given what happened in France.”

Mr Walker added that the cinemas are asking people not to bring replica weapons but his group have found a way to get around that.

He added: “We’ll be at the Odeon for the premier and we’re putting yellow tape round the handles of our weapons.

“That’s so everyone can see we’re part of the group and we can still take our blasters and our lightsabers without scaring people. (UK Telegraph)

SERIOUSLY??  I just have no words tpo describe the idiocy and the over-reaction. It’s beyond me.

Violence fears among Star Wars theater owners may have reached a new level. 

The country’s eighth largest theater chain, Bow Tie, has decided to ban fans from wearing face paint to screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Presumably regular cosmetic make-up is okay). 

That’s in addition to banishing masks, capes, cloaks, blasters and other “simulated weapons” at its 59 locations. 

The chain is also specifically outlawing toy lightsabers, even though they would be pretty tough to mistake for a real weapon.

In its newly issued guidelines to give fans a heads up on what’s permitted, however, Bow Tie did note that attendees can otherwise wear a costume. 

Major chain AMC issued a less restrictive policy, yet is still clamping down on anybody who might want to come dressed as a Stormtrooper: “AMC does not permit weapons or items that would make other guests feel uncomfortable or detract from the movie-going experience. Guests are welcome to come dressed in costume, but we do not permit masks. In short, bring your lightsaber, turn it off during the movie, and leave the blaster and Darth Vader mask at home.”  

At least one chain told us they’ll let customers wear whatever they want, but are also, perhaps wisely, not looking to publicize their lenient stance.

Yeah, that would be bad. 🙂

“Star Wars” fans planning to see the premiere of “The Force Awakens” at Cinemark theaters will have to leave their clone trooper masks and light sabers at home.

The movie theater chain will implement a dress code at its theaters for the “Star Wars” premiere amid security concerns following recent deadly movie theater shooting incidents across the country. 

Cinemark’s tickets for the highly anticipated film include fine print on the bottom that reads, “no face coverings, face paint, or simulated weapons — including light sabers —will be allowed in the buildings,” CBS’s Los Angeles affiliate reported. (WT)

“You’re in a dark space. … you don’t know what their intentions are. You don’t know if they’re concealing weapons. You want to be able to identify people in the heat of the moment,” Chris Kapica told CBS.

I saved the best for last.

Then there’s MSDNC, the Home of The Ministry of Truth…

On her eponymously named Sunday morning show, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry went into a mini-rant about racism in Star Wars as she complained about villain Darth Vader being “totally a black guy” when he was “cutting off white men’s hands” who did not “claim his son,” but then became a white man after he “claims his son and goes over to the good.”

During a segment about the upcoming The Force Awakens sequel, after a discussion about Princess Leia’s slave girl costume from the 1980s at 11:44 a.m., the MSNBC host admitted to having mixed feelings about the popular movie series:

I know why I have feelings — good, bad, and otherwise — about Star Wars. And I have a lot. I could spend the whole day talking about the whole Darth Vader situation.

After panel member Wesley Morris of the New York Times wondered, “Really? You could?” Harris-Perry took issue with a black actor voicing the iconic evil character rather than rejoicing at James Earl Jones getting such a high-profile career opportunity as she elaborated:

Yeah, like, the part where he was totally a black guy whose name basically was James Earl Jones, who, and we were all, but while he was black, he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men’s hands, and didn’t, you know, actually claim his son.

As if it would have made sense for an obviously white leading character to have had a father who was not white, she then griped:

But as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good, he takes off his mask and he is white. Yes, I have many, many feelings about that, but I will try to put them over here.

Star Wars can be a little confusing, especially on the weak minded as Obi-Wan would say.  Anakin, who is Darth Vader, was white before, during, and after his death.  We see him as a child, an adult, and even in spirit form where he is and always was a white guy.

I can only imagine the impact that these comments would have on a young African-American child seeing Star Wars for the first time.

If there is a notion that George Lucas intentionally tried to infuse some racism into the Star Wars plot, then he did a horrible job because two of the coolest characters in the series are black men, Lando Calrissian and Mace Windu.

In the Immortal words of William Shatner:

GET A LIFE!

A Mind is a terrible thing to waste…

Jar Jar is Re-elected Speaker

It’s not secret I have NO faith in the spineless RINO establishment elitist John Boehner who got re-elected as Speaker of The House. The man who can cave into Liberals faster than the speed of light.

Washington DC, you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

So what if the Republicans control the Congress if the leadership is not there to do anything productive for The People instead of just there to perpetuate their own power and aggrandize their own selves.

John Boehner is getting revenge.

After he secured his third term as speaker Tuesday afternoon, losing 25 votes on the House floor to some relative-unknown members of the Republican Conference, Boehner moved swiftly to boot two of the insurgents from the influential Rules Committee. That could be just the start of payback for the speaker’s betrayers, who might see subcommittee chairmanships and other perks fall away in the coming months. (Politico)

How Dare They Oppose ME!

FI FI FO FUM I SMELL THE STENCH OF A TEA PARTIER!

IF the Congress passes the legislation necessary to halt the 3rd world socialist slide Obama will stand proudly in their way.

Secure in the knowledge that Jar Jar will blink first every time.

“Me sa ready to compromise” -Jar Jar Boehner

And I have said numerous time before, compromise with a Liberal means you get nothing and they get everything they wanted.

“We don’t need these fringe guys as much as we did anymore,” said a GOP leadership aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “We can let them walk on certain bills, and it just won’t matter. That gives us breathing room.”

Those “fringe guys” are the one who got you the Majority in the first place, but that hardly matters to elite establishment. It’s Power for Power sake. Their own little Feifdom and Jar Jar is King, so “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS” anyone who dare Oppose The Lord Jar Jar!

So good ole spineless Johnnie will puff himself up and go up the hill with his pail of water and Obama will dump it on him and he’ll come crying home like the defeated nerd who just got a wedgy from a bully.

Sith Lord Obama: “These are not the budget cuts you are looking for”

The Agenda is The Agenda <<Darth Vader breathing>>!!

I am greatly saddened. Our last best hope has gone.

I felt a great disturbance in the budget, as if Trillions of dollars suddenly cried out in terror and disappeared…

But look on the horizon…it’s….JEB BUSH! 😦

He’ll save us! 🙂

The Real Star Wars

sith-lord-obama-64047_600

This is a tale of a young Senator who set out to change the world. To grab power. To reshape everything.

To fundamentally violate one of the truth of existence and to fight against it.

That truth, LIFE ISN’T FAIR.

I believe (to borrow another movie) it to be the Inception idea that started modern Liberalism.

If Life isn’t fair, then let’s make it equal. So that it is no more or less fair for anyone.

But that way leads to The Dark Side.

The Sith await you.

Think about it, you have a (in this case young) Senator who rises in a time of stress and War and Crisis. He promises hope & change. Though the hope and change he wants is to control everyone and everything. That way, Social Justice is “Fair”. And Life if “fair”.

In the time of crisis he is granted powers and takes steps no leader has ever dared take before. He takes over the Banks, insurance companies, the auto industry.

He consolidates more power to central authority that ever before. he is playing both sides against each other in the name of “fairness” to consolidate power. Because, after all, they only way life can be “fair” is if you control it from birth to death.

You have no freedom. But it’s Fair! 😦

“So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause”–Sen. Padme Amidala

But life is not fair.

And this frustrates him. He has such a grand vision. But he can’t get it done.

It’s not fair!

He’s so much smarter than everyone else. He’s so much better. More enlightened.

And all he wants is for everyone to be equal. Now that’s “fair”.

And before the November 2nd elections (9/10/10): “If it was just a referendum on whether we’ve made the kind of progress that we need to, then people around the country would say ‘We’re not there yet,'” Obama said.

“If the election is about the policies that are going to move us forward, versus the policies that will get us back into a mess, then I think Democrats will do very well.”

And on Nov 2, he and his minions were “shellacked”. But that didn’t stop them from have a very productive Lame Duck Session where they got 90% of what they wanted.

As a matter of fact, he’s now the “Comeback Kid”. The Emperor has New Clothes.

But still he fears that his life’s work will be undone, challenged or left unfulfilled. The dreams of 90 years of Progressive Liberalism rest upon his shoulders.

His vision.

So, like Palpatine, he will have to be craftier and take more control rather than letting his minions like Darth Vader do all the heavy lifting.

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”— Master Yoda

And who hates more liberals.

Only Radical Muslims and terrorists.

Class Warfare. Hate the rich (but not the Liberal Rich like George Soros or even Obama who made $5 million dollars last year).

Race Warfare. Pitting blacks and Hispanics against Whites because Whites are “not fair” and oppressive.

Despite the fact that liberal policies hurt blacks and hispanics.

It keeps them down.

The promise of “fairness” and “Justice” keep them in line. Even though in the 50 years they haven’t even come close to either.

Religious Warfare. The more Progressive (aka radical) they are the seemingly more anti-religious they are- especially Christianity.

How is that different from the Sith wanting to wipe out the Jedi??

The Jedi are spiritual. The Force is spiritual.

They must be crushed.

The State is your only salvation.

The Government is your protector. Your savior.

Not yourself.

But if Obama is Senator Palpatine, cum Emperor-wanna be, who is Darth Vader. The angry, power mad servant of the Dark Side?

Nancy Pelosi, who else. 🙂  (Not Dick Cheney as the Liberals tried to use in 2005 after Bush beat Kerry for re-election)

But it does point to the fact that when Liberals object to the dirty tricks way things are being done “unfairly” that usually means they have already done them and you’re not allowed to do what they are doing because they are so vastly superior and more “fair” than you.

But Darth Vader never got demoted to a Minority Position. This should just strengthen her backbone and her insanity.

She will hate even more at being thwarted and simultaneous be proud of her many accomplishments over the last 2 years.

Obstructing the rebel scum will be new mission. They cannot be allowed to retake what she has taken.

After all, it is my own opinion that Nancy Pelosi thought she was the Empress for the last 2 years and that Barack was the upstart who was getting in HER way.

Then there’s The Conspirator, aka Harry Reid. He who works behind the scenes to make it work through any means necessary.

You have the faceless “enemy”- The Rich. The Corporations. The Separatists.

You have the faceless, uniform soldiers of the cause, The Unions and the Bureaucracy. A hegemony of purpose and the foot soldiers of the cause.

And then you ad in an Orwellian touch, The Ministry of Truth. The Liberally-biased media that is a champion of the Empire’s needs and wants and will spread it’s message and lies far and wide across the land. Willingly so. And they all proclaims to be “fair” and “objective”.

Those who disagree with this view are the evil ones who are not fair and not objective: FOX,the Internet-Like Drudge,Daily Caller etc, and Talk Radio.

Which is why they must be controlled. So you send out the faceless bureaucratic clone minions of the FCC, the FTC, the FDA to stop them.

The SEIU are the people’s clone army. Foot soldiers for the cause.

Then there are the Liberal lawyers and judges who stop the resistance by ruling from ideology under the cover of law. To control the people ever further.

Then comes the Resistance, The Rebel Alliance.

A loose band of like-minded independent people who just want their freedoms back. To restore democracy and give all people a chance.

Meet THE TEA PARTY.

Hated, denigrated, and reviled by the Imperials.

But their allies in the Government haven’t proven they can be trusted yet. Not after the Lame Duck give aways they allowed.

So this chapter in the saga has yet to be written and it falls to all of us in the movement to keep the pressure on.

To quote yet another movie, “Never Give up! Never Surrender!”

Or as Master Yoda might say, ““Do or do not… there is no try.”

The Saga Continues.

The Empire Rising

“So this is how liberty dies: With thunderous applause.”– Senator Padme Amidala (Star Wars)

I have a special day lined up.

So the Democrats can destroy the country without much further adieu.

We can move on to reconciliation tomorrow and after that the post mortem.

Make no mistake, once they pass this bill, the Government will control who lives and who dies and how they will live.

All Hail Darth Obama, Lord of D.C.

The Tyranny of this Majority begins today with passage of the death knell of America.

Congrats to Obama and The Democrats if the pull it off today, your Liberal Godhood is assured.

The Damnation of The People is equally assured.

To Get it or Not to Get it

That is the question.

Whether it ’tis nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of outrage voters
Or to take arms against a sea of  Debt,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream (of Ultimate control): ay, there’s the rub;

(apologies to Shakespeare) 🙂

Obama One Year ago: “There are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans,” Obama declared. “What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them.”

Now will the Democrats feel the ground shifting beneath their feet?

NO.

Why would they.

They would have to acknowledge they were wrong. And when has that ever really happened?

Is the president a Leader or an Ideologue??

“The people of Massachusetts spoke,” Obama said, and Senator-elect Scott Brown has “got to be part of that process.”

So we can ram it through and declare victory after he gets here.

Speaker Pelosi is defiant and says she will pass Health Care in some form regardless. “I heard the candidate in Massachusetts, the Republican candidate, say ‘Let’s go back to the drawing board,'” Pelosi told reporters in California on Monday. “There is no back to the drawing board. . .. We will have health care one way or another.”

The Democrat thinking is that they must have a victory in this year-long obsession of theirs or else they are failures and have nothing to show for their last year. Completely missing the fact that is the obsession with Health Care that GOT them here in the first place.

So let’s pass the deeply unpopular legislation in some form just so we can infect the system with our cancer and let it grow on it’s own.

And that’s Victory to the Democrats.

Yikes!

“Does she stay loyal to the faction who made her speaker? Or will she go the bipartisan path?” (Former Speaker Newt) Gingrich asked. “I suspect she can’t risk the left being mad at her. … [Former House Speaker] Tom Foley would basically tell me, ‘Newt, I can’t bring up that bill — They’d kick me out if I did.’”

And, of course, there’s no guarantee that Republicans, who’ve voted in lock step against reform, would play along now — especially if they’re thinking that they’ll have more seats and more power after November’s midterm elections. (Politico)

I mean there are plenty of left-wing ideologues that firmly believe they lost in Massachusetts because they weren’t FAR-LEFT ENOUGH!

Just watch MSNBC.

Seriously.

And then there’s the faction that even blamed George W. Bush for the defeat!!

Mr. Obama said on ABC, “People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.

Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer trotted out the old blame-the-GOP card — incoherently arguing that GOP candidate Scott Brown’s surge among conservatives, independents and once-reliable rank-and-file Democratic voters in the deep-blue state of Massachusetts was a backlash against Republican obstructionism.(IBD)

IBD: Perhaps it’s because it’s never been about health care. It’s been about nationalizing one-sixth of the economy and making as many people as possible dependent on government. After all, the idea of a health care overhaul began with a lament about the uninsured, whose numbers changed with the political wind, and ended with a 2,000-page, $2.5 trillion hash that would leave millions uninsured.

🙂

And to top it off:

WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats on Wednesday proposed allowing the federal government to borrow an additional $1.9 trillion to pay its bills, a record increase that would permit the national debt to reach $14.3 trillion.

But it’s all the Republicans and George W Bush’s fault, remember that. 🙂

Less than a decade ago, $1.9 trillion would have been enough to finance the operations and programs of the federal government for an entire year. Now, it’s only enough to make sure Democrats can avoid another vote before Election Day.

Aaron Zelinsky, Huffington Post:

To put this in familiar terminology of our common cultural touchstone, Star Wars: In 2008, the Democrats made the election all about The New Hope. In 2010, The Republicans turned the Massachusetts election into Return of the Jedi (with Mr. Brown’s pickup truck as a stand-in for the Millennium Falcon). The last thing the Democrats want is for voters to think November 2010 is The Empire Strikes Back.

I would just add The Phantom Menace to come as the Democrats scramble to save their precious Holy Grail and appear to be something their not, Like Emperor Palpatine did.

And that’s the Change you can Believe in. 🙂

The Battle Hymn of The New Republic of Obama

The New #1 hit on the Big Brother parade…

Students from a Burlington, New Jersey school croon a tune with lyrics penned to honor President Barack Obama, sung to “Jesus Loves the the little children” (the irony being that if you even hint at God or Jesus in a public school the ACLU and Liberals will be all over you like fire ants at a picnic!)

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand [?]
To make this country strong again

Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be clear today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said Red, Yellow, Black or White
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
Yes
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama

segue to

Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all [do? doth??] say “hooray!”
Hooray Mr. President! You’re number one!
The first Black American to lead this great na-TION!
Hooray, Mr. President something-something-some
A-something-something-something-some economy is number one again!
Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!
And the same for all Americans [in?] the great Red White and Blue!
So something Mr. President we all just something-some,
So here’s a hearty hip-hooray a-something-something-some!
Hip, hip hooray! (3x)

The video is available on Youtube.

The Liberal response, so far:

In the cosmic scheme of things, it’s a minor transgression — an example of over-enthusiasm and poor judgment by a single teacher, and nothing more.-Denver Westword Blog

Imagine if this was George W Bush, or Ronald Reagan??

The Nuclear War of Outrage on the Ministry of  Truth would have been 24/7/365. You’d have thought Armageddon was right around the bend!!

Instead, we get shrugs and bored diminishment.

Remember the Lewinsky scandal, the media had to be dragged into it kicking and screaming. And what we usually got was  “so what” it was just a little sex, who cares.

But a fake news story about Bush’s military service and possible deferment, well, that was BIG NEWS for months. It was everywhere, and I bet if you searched the blogs you’d still find it.

I have heard that some Democrats are STILL running against George W. Bush in their 2009/2010 races!

But this, no big deal. Nothing to see here. Don’t pay any attention to the teacher behind the curtain!

Should we mention that during the campaign the mentioning of his middle name was considered to be prejudiced??

ABCNews:

Given widespread unease and prejudice against Muslims among Americans, especially in the wake of 9/11, the Obama campaign was perhaps understandably very sensitive during the primaries and general election to downplay the candidate’s Muslim roots.

The candidate was even offended when referred to by his initials “BHO,” because he considered the use of his middle name, “Hussein,” an attempt to frighten voters.

But now, it’s perfectly acceptable. Interesting…

The Cult of the Leader as a charismatic figure who is to be adored above all.

The President as the focal point of the nation.

To be adored and praised for his greatness.

A spontaneous ritual of devotion to Big Brother (“BB”) is illustrated at the end of the “Two Minutes Hate”:

At this moment the entire group of people broke into a deep, slow, rhythmic chant of ‘B-B! …. B-B! …. B-B!’—over and over again, very slowly, with a long pause between the first ‘B’ and the second—a heavy murmurous sound, somehow curiously savage, in the background of which one seemed to hear the stamps of naked feet and the throbbing of tom-toms. For perhaps as much as thirty seconds they kept it up. It was a refrain that was often heard in moments of overwhelming emotion. Partly it was a sort of hymn to the wisdom and majesty of Big Brother, but still more it was an act of self-hypnosis, a deliberate drowning of consciousness by means of rhythmic noise. (Orwell’s “1984”)

One Definition:

A cult of personality arises when a country’s leader uses mass media to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.

(ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC,New York Times, et al) anyone?

Cults of personality are often found in dictatorships and Stalinist governments.

You know, North Korea, Cuba, Iran, China , Venezuela, etc. All the leaders who are praising President Obama…

A cult of personality is similar to general hero worship, except that it is created specifically for political leaders.

Generally, personality cults are most common in regimes with totalitarian systems of government, that seek to radically alter or transform society according to (supposedly) revolutionary new ideas. Often, a single leader becomes associated with this revolutionary transformation, and comes to be treated as a benevolent “guide” for the nation, without whom the transformation to a better future cannot occur. This has been generally the justification for personality cults that arose in totalitarian societies of the 20th century, such as those of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Il,etc.

Sound familiar all you “Hope and Change”, “Yes, We can” ‘ers…  🙂

Mind you, this a President who’s most famous accomplishment before becoming President was he was an author or a Book about HIMSELF!

He certainly had no legislative record of accomplishment.

He was never an executive of anything.

And have you noticed all his speeches are about him, ultimately?

Big Brother Obama.

He’s here to save us all. To bring back the hope! 🙂

Who wants to decide who lives (abortion) and who dies (health care). Who wants to decide how you live (Cap and trade) and wants to run your life for you because your obviously evil, stupid and incapable of doing it without him.

So we praise him from the rafters for saving us from ourselves!

Likening the (health care) bills’ abortion provisions to those on end-of-life counseling, Huckabee said, “If the government can tell us who can be born, that same government can tell us when to die.”
“Our new policy is to walk softly and carry an olive branch, and maybe a bag of stay-puft marshmallows so we can sit around the campfire and sing kumbaya,” Huckabee said. (MSNBC)

So we now have the Battle Hymn of the New Republic of Obama.

I wonder, is he a Sith Lord? 🙂

Upon hearing the roar of approval in the Galactic Senate when Chancellor Palpatine announces the formation of the First Galactic Empire, Queen Padme responds: “So this is how liberty dies…with thunderous applause.”

Thunderous applause indeed. 🙂
