Praying To Obama

Recently, I posted a story entitled, "Children Singing In Praise Of The One," with a video of children literally singing Obama's praises, inserting HIS name where the name of JESUS had been. That was at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ. The school claimed that their song of praise and glory was fo r"Black History Month." Uh huh.

Cain't wait to hear what the excuse is, then, for this Homage to President Obama at the Sands Hill Elementary School in Asheville, NC:

Are you ready for this? That performance was for the P.T.A. Yeppers, it sure enough was.

Unfortunately, that was not the only NC school that had a "Glory And Honor To The ONE" performance planned. Check out what a teacher had prepared the students to do at the Jamestown Elementary School in Jamestown, NC:

Dear Obama

(Solo – spoken)
This is a letter to Barack Obama…it’s our way of saying thank you.
(Solo – spoken)
Thank you for showing me that no doors are closed.
I have the power to control my own future.
(Solo – spoken)
Thank you for showing me that I can stand tall and be proud of who I am.
(Solo – spoken)
You have given us strength, courage and hope.
And for that we all say Thank You!
(Verse 1)
Dear Obama, Hear us sing
We’re ready for the change that you will bring.
Going to shine the light for the world to see, to spread peace hope and democracy.
The time is now bring our troops home. Iraq can stand strong on its own.
And fight for healthcare for the young so that coverage is available for everyone.
And it’s time to find renewable ways to fuel our needs, so we don’t depend on Chavez and the Middle East. We’ve got to stand up tall for the middle class and regulate the businesses that in the past got away with no oversight.
Doing things that were not right.
Giving loans and bad advice, expecting us to pay the price.
The change we need should begin today and Barack we stand behind you as you lead the way.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymore
We all agree that Yes We Can
Dear Obama we must unite and pull together members of the left and the right
With terror threats bringing fear we hope our world you will soon hear
Diplomacy in Islaamabaad and please control Ahmidinejad. With Hillary Clinton as your Secretary of State, your team has the opportunity to make.
The world will see us with adoring eyes. And our popularity will rise. Please pay off all our debts to China, and strengthen our forces against Al-qaeda. You have the power to change education, giving our public schools some dedication.
Raising up teacher pay
Improving Schools in every state
So every child can truly make it, in the steps that you have created.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymore
We all agree that Yes We Can
(Solo – spoken)
And today is a new day where we can all see a new hope for our country.
And we know that all along your journey, people say mean things to you and about you. But you never gave up and that gives us strength to never give up. You are more than a President. You are a role model, a father figure, and a man we can all look up to, and for that we say Thank You.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymore
We all agree that Yes We Can
(Solo – spoken)
Sincerely, every child, every family, everyone…
Barack Obama – We Thank You!

Oh. My. Goddess. Are you BELIEVING THIS?? Please, please explain to me how this is NOT indoctrination, because it sure as hell looks like it to me. It was only because concerned parents spoke out that there was intervention:
Concerned parents brought the song to the attention of Marcus Kindley, former Chairman of the Guilford Co., NC Republican Party and candidate for North Carolina Republican Party Chairman.

In a statement on Kindley wrote, "This information was brought to my attention by a parent of a child attending this school. Such indoctrination of our children is reminiscent of totalitarian regimes marching their children out in praise of the esteemed leader."

Kindley and parents of students attending Jamestown Elementary began an email campaign to voice their concerns over the song, which persuaded the principal of the school, and Paul Daniels, a member of the District 5 Board of Education in Guilford Co., NC, to order the teacher who planned the performance to cancel the song. It was not sung at the graduation ceremony.

I would not have thought this was a Republican v. Democrat kind of thing. It seems to me to be an AMERICAN thing.

You know, Hillary Clinton's presidency would have been even more historic, no matter how hard David Axelrove and Co. tried to play that down. We have NEVER Had a WOMAN of any color serve as president. Do you honestly think this would have been happening had she not had the nomination stolen from her? Honestly?? No. Nor would she have WANTED something like this.

This Obama worship is cultish - there is no other way to look at it. And there is no other way to look at it but worship. This is, frankly, some scary, scary shit...

I have no idea how this worship of Obama has come to be, I guess I can only say that those who are fueling this have been living with a very empty space in their hearts and souls and have this need to fill the void. It reminds me of those in the cults such as Jim Jones.

Think about it, what are the behaviors of a cult?

The cult "leader" is always right. (No matter if Obama defaults on a campaign promise, he will always be given the benefit of the doubt.)

Anyone who disagrees with him is wrong. (If you don't agree with him, you're a racist.)

The ends justify the means. (cheating to get him elected is ok)

Group-think, Suppression of Dissent, and Enforced Conformity in Thinking. (speaks for itself)

Irrationality: When Bush was caught spying on us with wire taps and said he needed to do this to "protect us from terrorists", the "Progressives" were up in arms. When Obama extended the wire taps and enhanced it, his Obots said that it was ok because he was "just keeping us safe".

Denigration of competing sects, cults, religions...or in this case, denigration of other political views. Again, if you criticize his policies, you are a racist.

Personal attacks on critics.

Insistence that the cult (Obama's way--the Chicago Way), is the only way.

The cult and its members are special. (i.e. those who voted for Obama were educated and intelligent, those who didn't were trailer trash, racists, clinging to their guns and Bibles.)

Induction of guilt, and the use of guilt to manipulate cult members. (Every time Obama fails, the ones who get blamed are his followers for not "pushing his agenda" or "speaking out" enough on their blogs.)

Unquestionable Ideology.

Indoctrination of members. (Do you recall Obama's campaign site where on his blog the blog members took on the middle name "Hussein" to show their solidarity?

Instant community. (The rapid rate of his rise in the campaign and the number of blogs who followed him, even though he was relatively unknown.

Instant Intimacy. (The glowing reports from the media and bloggers regarding his "dates" with Michelle and what they do or eat in their private time.)

Surrender To The Cult. (You're either with him or you are Un-American.

Create a sense of powerlessness, covert fear, guilt, and dependency. (How many times have we heard that even though Obama has thrown the gay community under the bus or kept us in the war he promised to end, they stick by his side with the statement, "Well, he's better than (fill in the name...Hillary, John McCain, Sarah Palin). Also, I've heard calls to allow him more than two terms.

Ideology Over Experience, Observation, and Logic

Grandiose existence. Bombastic, Grandiose Claims. (Just read his books).

Enemy-making and Devaluing the Outsider. (The constant remarks about how "HE won" and "they" didn't. "They" are stupid, HE and his followers are smart.)

True Believers (You just have to read the words of that song by the children. "yes he can!")

We Have The Panacea. (Only the Progressive Democrats could cure the economic problems and ills of this country.)

Sorry for the long comment...but this whole messiah worship of Obama scares the shit out of me. 8-0

You absolutely do NOT need to apologize for that FANTASTIC comment, ME. You hit every single issue abt Obama and his followers. I had been thinking today how much these people remind me of Jim Jones members. How else to explain this IRRATIONAL glorification of someone who has reneged on more promises than he has fulfilled?

I just don't get it. I started reading this article abt Gore Vidal who thinks our nation is going to have a dictatorship soon, and even Obama can't fix it (um, no, because he is steadily moving in that direction). He also claims Obama doesn't lie. Are you KIDDING me with that BS?? That is just blinded loyalty - no room for any reality there.

I swear, ME - that comment would make a mighty fine post!! You really hit the nail on the head.

I just keep thinking what my Obot family would do if their young children had to sing songs of praise like that abt Dubya? Or Reagan? Heck, even BILL? What would they think if ANY president was held on the same level as Jesus? I'm thinking they wouldn't be at all happy - not one bit...

It is indoctrination, pure and simple. I don't see any other way to look at it, myself.

Hi Amy,
I don't know how to get in touch with you so please forgive me for sending this off-topic (well maybe not so much) article. It's an interview with Gore Vidal and I'm including some excerpts. An "I told you so" article would be a good subject for a future blog.

Here are a few excerpts...
Last year he famously switched allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama during the Democratic nomination process for president. Now, he reveals, he regrets his change of heart.

Vidal now believes, as he did originally, Clinton would be the better president. “Hillary knows more about the world and what to do with the generals. History has proven when the girls get involved, they’re good at it.

Best regards,
Betsy (Jackarooty from NQ)

Hi Amy,
Me again! I just scrolled down, read your feedback on the first comment and saw that you already read Gore Vidal's interview. I also got very annoyed at his Obama doesn't lie comment but I really appreciated his view that Hillary would have made a better president.
Best regards,

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Hey, Betsy -

Thanks so much - I appreciate your highlighting the OTHER part of what Vidal said. Another one who has buyer's remorse, eh? Too bad he didn't use his (rude) rapier wit to speak out on this pertinent info previously (is it just me, or isn't he pretty rude? Wow...).

I'll go back and take another look with a different eye - I admit, that "Obama doesn't lie" crap colored my perspective. Thanks!!

Hi Amy,

I had tried to post something yesterday, but not sure if it went through.

I am in total agreement that the Obots are in a cult-like warped thought pattern, and as such demonize anyone and everyone who doesn't want to become part of the cult. I just keep wondering is this cult like mentality of the young being cultivated by their almost god-like devotion and reliance on being "tuned in" to their electronics? I mean if you tune anything else out that you don't want to hear, doesn't that lessen your outlook rather than expanding it.?


Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

chklaver -

Sorry - don't know what happened to your first comment. Thanks so much for trying again!!

And what a great comment it was. Yes, it is much easier to indoctrinate kids if they won't hear any dissenting voices at all, or, as you said, demonize the ones that do filter through.


Thanks again for coming back!
