Ali Sin writes publicly what I've been writing privately for the past six months. He's more courageous in public than I.
It is surreal to see the level of hysteria in [Barack Obama's] admirers. This phenomenon is unprecedented in American politics. Women scream and swoon during his speeches. They yell and shout to Obama, "I love you." Never did George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt. Martin Luther King Jr. or Ronald Reagan arouse so much raw emotion. Despite their achievements, none of them was raised to the rank of Messiah. The Illinois senator has no history of service to the country. He has done nothing outstanding except giving promises of change and hyping his audience with hope. It's only his words, not his achievements that is causing this much uproar. When cheering for someone turns into adulation, something is wrong. Excessive adulation is indicative of a personality cult. The cult of personality is often created when the general population is discontent. A charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary leader.
If Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960s. Obama will set the clock back decades.
****It's likely to late for us now. It seems a foregone conclusion that people will elect Osama Barka as our president. If you blow it by voting for this scum-bag, don't blow it further by taking it out later on the innocent. You'll have done enough damage already.
It turns out that Ali Sina and I aren't the only ones who see Obama as a slimy con-man: here's a severely edited version from American Thinker.
Paul Shlichta, "The Mendacity of Hope." 19 Oct. 2008.
- Exploitation of weakness: As we have seen, he creates false hope by breeding discontent and then offering the desperate hope of overcoming it by submitting to his leadership.
- Carrot and stick: The carrots are pretty exotic -- lower taxes, universal health care, world peace and unity, the seas will fall, etc. And the stick is that if you don't vote for him, you're racist.
- Concealment: The three principal forms of concealment are hiding, misdirecting, and lying. Obama makes liberal use of all three. As Ed Lasky has shown, Obama has concealed much of his past; the data and documents are mysteriously "lost" or unavailable. When that doesn't work, embarrassing questions are dodged or met with counteraccusations -- the issue is not relevant, the accusation is racist, etc. And, when that fails, Obama resorts to outright lies.
