Obama cultists: free yourselves.
Shed those chains of compliance and apathy. Walk free.
I’m not here to attack you. I’m here to reach out with a joyful message of hope. I’m also not here to tell you to become a Republican. I’m not a Republican; I’m proudly and aggressively unaffiliated with any political party. And I know your immediate, visceral, instinctual reaction, when someone challenges you or your Leader, is to shout, “BUT YOU DIDN’T SAY THIS WHEN BUSH DID [xyz]!” Well, I was a kid when Bush came into office, but for what it’s worth, I did criticize many of his actions and policies. When he signed the No Child Left Behind Act, for instance, I was vociferously opposed. And I let everyone at the lunch table know about it.
So, I’ve disarmed your only defense mechanisms. You can’t bring Republicans into this one, because I’m not a Republican. You can’t hit me with the “you didn’t say this when Bush did…” routine, because I did say it. I’ve taken your only shield, and now you stand before me; naked, exposed.
Wait. Stop. Don’t run. This, my friends, is an intervention. For over five years you’ve danced on the sidelines and cheered as the most dishonest, manipulative, destructive, narcissistic, incompetent, corrupt, liberty-hating, anti-constitutional president in US history ran roughshod over the American people and the American way of life. For over five years, my fellow countrymen, you’ve waved your pompoms for a tyrant. Your Leader is not a good man. He can be redeemed, as we can all be redeemed, but his actions have been truly heinous. Remember: I don’t say that because I’m a Republican. I do not say it because I’m a Bush fan. I say it because it’s true; and it’s a truth that is entirely unavoidable.
Stop… No, stop right there. I can already hear you: “But.. but… but a lot of presidents have done bad things.” Yes, yes they have. But we’re talking about THIS president right now. And, it just so happens, THIS president has done things that no other president would have dreamed of doing.
Listen, I’m concerned about you. I did some research this morning, which brought me to a website called CultClinic.org. This is a site that’s supposed to help the family and friends of cult members. I perused for a bit and found a list of Warning Signs That Someone Might Be In A Cult:
•Thinking in black and white terms
•Using a new language/cultic jargon
•Saying goodbye to all old friends and only seeing people affiliated with, or not critical of the cult
•Creating distance from family, especially during holidays and family events
•Euphoric, yet simultaneously tired and worn
•A change in diet and sleep patterns
•Low on money
•A dismissal of their life prior to involvement with the group as “all bad”
•A change in goals, priorities, and life plan
•Return to child-like behavior
•Dogmatic adherence to new beliefs/ideas, with the inability, or lack of interest to logically assess these new beliefs
Good Lord. It’s worse than I thought. Obama Cultists exhibit all of these traits.
Thinking in black and white terms? Check. Obama Cultists literally see everything as a racial black and white issue (which is why they’ll leave comments under this post accusing me of racism). Using new jargon? Triple check. In a recent example, an Obama supporter told me that all of the people who are getting their insurance canceled aren’t “losing” it — they’re being “transitioned.” All of that stuff about alienating family members? Check, but it’s worse than that. The modern progressive wishes to alienate not just his own family, but the very institution itself. Euphoric, yet tired and worn? Check. Can you think of any better description of the “hope and change” routine from 2008? Humorless? Checkcheckcheckcheckcheck. Huge, massive, gigantic check. A change in diet? Check. Just talk to Michelle about that. Low on money? Check. No president has expanded the Welfare State more than this one. Poor grades? Well, admittedly, the aforementioned No Child Left Behind Act makes this one a moot point. A dismissal of life prior to joining cult? N/A. Hardly anyone ever goes from conservative to progressive. The transformation almost always works the other way around. So, in other words, if someone is a progressive, they’ve likely been one their whole life. They’ll remain in that condition until they grow up. A change in priorities and goals? Check. Isn’t that the very mission of progressivism? Return to child like behavior? Check. Well, except for the “return” part. Dogmatic adherence to beliefs? CHECK. A billion times, check. Secrecy? Check. But the secrecy is on Obama’s part, and his followers dutifully make excuses for it.
This is a chilling reality. I’ve always referred to Obama supporters as “cultists,” but, for a while, I merely meant it pejoratively. Then I began to realize that the term is literally true. Sure, Jim Jones persuaded 900 people to drink cyanide, whereas Obama had trouble convincing six people to buy health insurance from him. But let us not assume that Obama’s Cult Leader powers have diminished. He ain’t much of an insurance salesman, but the man has brainwashing methods that would make Lyndon LaRouche jealous.
The Obama Cultist often accuses me of criticizing his Leader without presenting “specifics” and “evidence.” Here’s how the conversation usually works:
Me: Obama lied and said we’d all be able to keep our insurance plans!
Obama Cultist: You’re the liar! When did Obama ever say that?
Me: Here’s over 20 video clips of Obama saying exactly that.
Obama Cultist: … OH YEAH?! WELL WHERE WERE THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION?!
No, really, every single conversation I’ve ever had with any Obama Cultist has followed a trajectory very similar to this.
So, Obama Cultist, it’s just you and me right now. Nobody else. Pull the blindfold off. Pull it off for just a moment. I’m going to give you your specifics. I’m going to specifically explain why Obama is a liar and a tyrant. Read this next part like a rational adult. Read it like someone who wants the truth. I won’t tell on you. Your secret is safe with me. And, at the end, if you want to go back into that mental cave of submission, fear and blind allegiance — I won’t try to stop you. But crawl out for a moment. Just a moment. And consider the specifics.
Obama is a liar because:
-He sold his health care plan by GUARANTEEING, on MULTIPLE occasions, that you can KEEP your plan if you like it. He could not have passed the legislation through Congress, or sold it the American people, without saying this. But it was a lie. A bold faced lie. It was a statement presented as truth, despite the fact that it wasn’t true — i.e. a “lie.” Whatever you think about the ACA, it is a profoundly impactful law that will alter all of our lives in serious ways. A good, honest and moral man would never sell something such as this by lying about it. He did. He lied. There is no way around it. He said you can keep your plan if you like it, when, in fact, the law DEPENDS on you NOT being able to keep your plan if you like it. That’s a lie. A terrible, awful, no-good lie, uttered by a terrible, awful no-good man.
-Watch this. “No more spying on American citizens.” Do you know what we call that when stated by the man who is in charge while the government actually spies on every single citizen? A lie. Not a “misrepresentation” or an “inaccuracy” — a lie. Plain and simple.
-This is a doozy. He lies, like, seven times in under two minutes. But watch him as he unleashes this battery of bull crap. He has no intention of doing any of these thing, and he didn’t do any of these things, yet he lies to 300 million people without flinching. Even Obama’s pals in the left wing press have dubbed his regime the most “closed, control freak” administration in American history. Do you know what you need to be good at if you want to run a closed, control freak White House? Lying.
-My favorite brand of Obama Lie is when he says something on camera, and then later denies having said the thing that we all saw and heard him say. Here’s a good example. Obama, August 12, 2012: “A red line for us, is the use of chemical weapons” in Syria. Obama, September 4, 2013: “I didn’t set a red line.” Bro, seriously?
-These are classic Obama lies because they also mix in a healthy dose of cowardice. Dozen of meetings and briefings every day, but he claims he finds out what his administration is really up to by watching CNN. Way to lie AND insult the intelligence of every American, Mr. President.
-Of course there’s the Throwback Obama lies, like when he covered up his connection to Acorn, or his church, or Tony Rezko. There’s the Obama Theatrics Lies, where he closes down privately funded monuments, or ends White House tours (which are run by volunteers) to make some sort of point about a shut down he caused, or a sequester he specifically planned. There’s the Obama Scandal Lies, which we’ll delve into in the next chapter. There’s the standard Broken Campaign Promise Lie, such as the stories he told about his “intention” to close Gitmo or end the wars overseas or repeal the Patriot Act (which he’s repeatedly renewed). Or breaking his promise to not hire any lobbyists, by hiring at least 40 lobbyists to work in his administration. There’s the Diversion Lie, which isn’t a direct lie, but a dishonest attempt to distract from important issues by making a national story out of a radio host insulting some chick at Georgetown, or an obscure 5th string NBA player coming out of the closet, or a local police matter in Sanford, Florida. Obama lies come in many forms, but probably the biggest lie he ever told is this.
You see, I only call the man a liar because he is, in fact, a pathological, calculating, cheating, scamming, liar. I call him a liar because he is a liar. Not because BUSH. Or because REPUBLICAN. Or because RACISM. But because the man lies like he breathes.
Obama is a tyrant because:
-He has ordered 326 drone strikes in Pakistan, killing hundreds of women and children. Tack on another few hundred in Yemen, Libya and Somalia. Perhaps this is why, according to a new book, he bragged about being “really good at killing people.”
-Obama has a “Kill List,” where he keeps track of his extrajudicial murders. He assassinated an American citizen without charge or trial. A few weeks later, he had that citizen’s 16 year old son killed for no apparent reason. When his press secretary was asked why Obama murdered an American teenager, he responded that the child “should have had a more responsible father.”
-Obama attacks the evil “one percenters,” but has received more money from Wall Street than any president in the last two decades.
-His IRS targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle. This effectively handicapped his opposition and silenced many of his most passionate enemies.
-Obama has armed and/or funded drug cartels in Mexico, terrorists in Libya, savage child murderers in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
-When his gun running operation from Libya to Syria went sideways, and his ambassador was under siege in Benghazi, those that could have helped were ordered to stand down. Then we were told lie after lie, with the administration still, to this day, failing to come clean about why the stand down order was given, why the compound was attacked in the first place, what Obama was doing on the night of the attack, and why they ever claimed a YouTube video had anything to do with any of this.
-Obama’s Justice Department spied on the Associated Press and threatened to prosecute a Fox News journalist for reporting on a story.
-He’s funneled billions of dollars to banks and corporations, under the guise of “bailouts.”
-He’s purged the military of commanders that don’t align with his political ideology.
-Many of his agencies, from the VA, to the IRS, to the GSA, have stolen tax money to splurge on boozy parties, trips to Disney World, and “conferences” at swanky resorts.
-His HHS secretary has solicited “donations” from companies and corporations that will be regulated under Obamacare.
-His NSA apparently spies on everyone in the galaxy, including, but not limited to, all American citizens, foreign allies, and the Pope.
-He gave tax money to campaign contributors, and then called it an “investment” in a green energy company. The company summarily went bankrupt.
-His administration has aggressively prosecuted whistleblowers, even going so far as to institute the “Insider Threat Program,” which encourages government employees to spy on each other.
You see, I only call him a tyrant because he is, in fact, a murdering, stealing, lying, despotic tyrant. Not because BUSH. Or because REPUBLICAN. Or because RACISM. But because he is an abhorrent, abominable dictator.
I’m trying to appeal to you, Obama Cultists, so I didn’t even mention the most nefarious aspects of this man: his pro-abortion extremism. He’s given more tax money to the abortion industry than any other president. He still stands, I believe, as the only US president to ever wish “blessings” on a room full of wealthy abortionists. He’s so in love with abortion that he opposed a bill that would have protected BORN INFANTS from being “aborted” after delivery. His refusal to protect the most helpless among us makes him a spineless, gutless scoundrel of the lowest order, but I won’t include that charge in this deposition. I realize, as Obama Cultists, you’re probably rather fond of this “procedure,” so it’s useless in this debate. Go here and here to understand why you’re wrong on this subject.
In any case, let’s not allow our moment of unity to be derailed at the very end. You must understand, Obama Cultists, I am here because I worry for you. I want you to shrug off this self-imposed burden that forces you to make apologies for the criminalities and tyrannies of a narcissistic bureaucrat. You need not weigh yourselves down with such a responsibility.
Free yourselves. You made a mistake with this Obama guy. It’s OK, we all make mistakes. Admit it, apologize, and let’s move on.
