Cult of Personality - The Battle for Liberty is Underway

How many of you have heard of the "I Pledge" video?

It was released on January 20th, just after Obama's inauguration. I cannot believe how late I am in commenting on this, but in the wake of Obama's Hail Mary "Lie" to congress, and his indoctrination speech to the children, it is very relevant as a MINDSET of the administration.

It is a moving and very compelling propaganda puff piece, with all your favorite actors and actresses promising to drive Hybrids, stop drinking bottled water, only flush when they do a two-sie, and most importantly to be nice to old people...

It is a pledge of good service and Americanism... right?

Watch for yourself, and tell me what you find that just POPS out at you... anything odd?

I'll tell you what I found odd...

"I pledge to be of service to Barack (kiss) Obama (kiss)" - Red Hot Chili Pepper Guitarist, as he kissed his biceps for the newly inaugurated Obama.
"I pledge to be a SERVANT to our President" - Demi Moore
"Together we can, together we are, together we can be the change" - spoken in a monotone chorus by all

The concepts of the overall message were positive - but for a reason... to lead and persuade the viewer, to correlate the acts of kindness to acts of obedience to the Federal Government, and the President.

Wiki explains simply that Cult of Personality (other than an awesome political rock song from the 80's) is:
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. Cults of personality are often found in dictatorships and Stalinist governments.

A cult of personality is similar to general hero worship, except that it is created specifically for political leaders. However, the term may be applied by analogy to refer to adulation of religious or non-political leaders.
The use of celebrities, the message of servitude and obedience, the general acceptance that we are all one people united under Obama - It is the Cult of Personality...

For those of you who complained that we were all making a fuss about Obama's speech to the school children, watch this video again... and know that his speech was intended to give out a "homework assignment" where the students would perform an act of servitude "for the president"... to do ANYTHING in service of the president is the absolutely UN-AMERICAN... The President serves US, not the other way around... we work to serve our community, our state, and our nation in support of the Constitution - NOT in support of cult worship of a "political hero".

THIS is what scares those of us who are aware...
THIS is why we gather and support the TEA Parties...
THIS is why we rally behind Joe Wilson, R-SC, for speaking out against our King
THIS is why we want to preview and approve what this political cult figure head says to our children...
THIS is why we must not surrender or compromise on ANY MORE government Expansion...
and THIS is why we must, WE MUST, cut the head of this Leviathan - so NO PRESIDENT present or future has the power to enslave the citizens of this nation.

The TEA Parties, the Liberty loving Americans, and the now angry mob have aided in damaging the idol status of this president, his policies of Socialism, and have begun revealing publicly the agenda of his political party.

We must NOT allow the Republicans to fill the void with more of the same either... If we do, 2010 will be a waste, and all our efforts at the grassroots level will be for NOTHING.

I pledge to FIGHT tyranny, to stand up to my oppressors - Republican OR Democrat - to always let my voice be heard in FAVOR of Liberty, and to NEVER pledge servitude to ANY man as if he were a king!


  1. "I pledge to FIGHT tyranny, to stand up to my oppressors - Republican OR Democrat - to always let my voice be heard in FAVOR of Liberty, and to NEVER pledge servitude to ANY man as if he were a king!"

    Absolutely and Amen.

  2. Thanks Rev! Hey, I know you developed a bad relationship with have any other recommendation? I cannot find ammo for my new G32 :( Cabela's shelf is bone dry!

  3. And to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign or domestic.

  4. Is it wrong to be opposed to this Pledge thing and still think Demi Moore is still kinda hot? Totally conflicted here...But seriously though, cult of personality - nailed it on the head. Did you see the video that Penn of Penn & Teller did on this video? Totally ripped it apart, as only he can. Here you go:

  5. Opus - YES, to protect and defend not just the constitution, but the declaration of independence, for without the first, you could not have the latter!

  6. I pledge to make fun of these people as oftern as I can. And if that that Red Hot Chili Pepper Guitarist wants to kiss something, I've got something for him to kiss.

    Liberty or death. That is *our* pledge.
