Obamamania: Why Are People So Drawn To A Charismatic Demagogue

It can’t be the water.  I’ve been drinking the same water and diet coke everyone else is drinking and I have not fallen under the spell of Barack Obama.

Let’s examine the word Demagogue:

dem⋅a⋅gogue

    [dem-uh-gog, -gawg] Show IPA Pronunciation  
noun, verb, -gogued, -gogu⋅ing.

–noun 

1. a person, esp. an orator or political leader, who gains power and popularity by arousing the emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people.
  –verb (used with object)
2. to treat or manipulate (a political issue) in the manner of a demagogue; obscure or distort with emotionalism, prejudice, etc.

From The Great One, Mark Levin:

The Obama Temptation   [Mark R. Levin]

I’ve been thinking this for a while so I might as well air it here. I honestly never thought we’d see such a thing in our country – not yet anyway – but I sense what’s occurring in this election is a recklessness and abandonment of rationality that has preceded the voluntary surrender of liberty and security in other places. I can’t help but observe that even some conservatives are caught in the moment as their attempts at explaining their support for Barack Obama are unpersuasive and even illogical. And the pull appears to be rather strong. Ken Adelman, Doug Kmiec, and others, reach for the usual platitudes in explaining themselves but are utterly incoherent. Even non-conservatives with significant public policy and real world experiences, such as Colin Powell and Charles Fried, find Obama alluring but can’t explain themselves in an intelligent way. 

There is a cult-like atmosphere around Barack Obama, which his campaign has carefully and successfully fabricated, which concerns me. The messiah complex. Fainting audience members at rallies. Special Obama flags and an Obama presidential seal. A graphic with the portrayal of the globe and Obama’s name on it, which adorns everything from Obama’s plane to his street literature. Young school children singing songs praising Obama. Teenagers wearing camouflage outfits and marching in military order chanting Obama’s name and the professions he is going to open to them. An Obama world tour, culminating in a speech in Berlin where Obama proclaims we are all citizens of the world. I dare say, this is ominous stuff. 

It reminds me of that Movie former WWE Wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper was in titled, “They Live”.  

 

They Live is a 1988 film directed by John Carpenter, who also wrote the screenplay under thepseudonym “Frank Armitage.” The movie is based on Ray Nelson’s 1963 short story “Eight O’Clock in the Morning.”

Part science fiction thriller and part black comedy, the film echoed contemporary fears of a decliningeconomy, within a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption common among Americans in the 1980s. In They Live, the ruling class within the monied elite are in fact aliens managing human social affairs through the use of subliminal media advertising and the control of economic opportunity.

I feel like I am the character that Piper played.  The only guy who can see through the masquarade of lies.  Why have I not fallen at the feet of the Obamessiah?  How is it that that educated intelligent people cannot see past the mask?  I am finding it harder and harder to understand.

  1. Most Americans are Brainwashed, Braindead, or Brainless. Maybe its the public schools or more likely a belief in the free lunch caused by an epidemic of immaturity and instant gratification.
    Obamanation = Abomination.

  2. Someone needs to remind that lying sack of shit Biden that the Obamessiah DID IN FACT pay $832,598 to Citizens Services Inc.which is headquartered at the same address as ACORN’s national headquarters in New Orleans. Citizens Services was established in December 2004 to “assist persons and organizations who advance the interests of low- and moderate-income people,” according to paperwork filed in Louisiana. In a 2006 ACORN publication, Citizen Services Inc. is described as “ACORN’s campaign services entity.”

    So as we can all see, Biden is as full of shit as Obama himself is. Two kernals of corn in the same turd!

  3. With a heavy heart I have to say that I agree with you 100% on your views concerning Obama, his followers and his ties.
    I don’t sleep much anymore, worrying about what is to come January. I’ve found myself crying over “my fellow Americans” not understanding their ignorance and lack of inteligence when it comes to Obama and what seems most of the Democratic Party. Obama promises hope and with each cheer of his followers my hope lessens.
    I am 39 years old, a caucasion female, married, 3 children. I pride myself on voting for the individual who represents the people as whole, for their betterment, doesn’t matter to me if it is the popular way or not. It is beyond my understanding how so many have drank the kool-aid this mans spits out each time he opens his mouth.

    The saddest truth of all. Nothing Obama or Biden have said, done or will do or say is going to make a difference. The obvious ties he has, the money(where it comes from), his socialsm attitude and plans, his blatant racism, his tactic for control of the media on all platforms, his total disregard for shows of patriotism, etc. I could go on for quite some time. I fear the worst – America as we all know it this day will cease to exist and we shall all pay the consequences for the wisdom of ignorant fools.

  4. Looks more like “Omen” the movie…Bastard with the agenda…Handlers who sold their souls to the Devil…and zombified worshippers…
