The ancient Roman emperors used to declare themselves gods. In modern day America the Mainstream Media has assumed the task of labeling whom THEY choose as gods. They have chosen America's first half white and half black President, Barack Hussein Obama, as a god. Occasionally they come very close to exchanging the small "g" for a large "G.” Frankly, of late, it has begun to trip my "gag" reflex.
Back during the campaign, I mentioned, a couple of times, maybe more, but then, whose counting, that I was frightened by the demeanor of the crowds who waited upon Obama and who cheered Obama and who fainted in his presence, and so forth, and so on. I also mentioned that I had not seen the looks on the faces of the people in the Obama crowds since the old movie newsreels showing the faces in the crowds who cheered Adolph Hitler. (You can, occasionally, still see that footage on history programs on TV.) The maniacal countenance shared by so many in Hitler’s crowds matched, to a tee, the crazed looks upon the faces of many of those people waiting upon Obama. It was, and still is, truly frightening. That fear struck a primal cord… a cord, which gave me to understand that that crowd, was only a hair’s breadth away from being a mob. Add to that the crowds of journalistic professionals we entrust with the dispensation of information, the Media, and their slavish worship of the divine Mr. “O,” and you have the formula for the self-destruction of an entire country. (See Germany circa 1920 thru 1945)
Over the past six months, as I have experienced my country coming apart right before my eyes, I have observed and listened, sometimes with fascination, to the propaganda from the mainstream media as they attempted to convince me that all my concern about Mr. Obama sprang from my personal paranoia. Until, that is I read An Open Letter to President Obama by Lou Pritchett. In his letter, Mr. Pritchett gives form to all those things about Obama that concern me and an assurance that my generation, at least, has not been taken in by the assumption of Obama’s divinity by the Mainstream Media and, I have come to suspect, the same assumption by Mr. Obama, himself. You’ll find Mr. Pritchett’s letter at the American Family Association Online HERE.
Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher, and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering." Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales, and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.
Here is Mr. Pritchett’s Open letter to President Obama:
AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
Mr. Pritchett has put into words the fears and concerns of many Americans. That is what makes his letter to the President so important.
Then there is the question of Mr. Obama’s Narcissism. There is an excellent article titled “Obama’s Narcissism” which you will find HERE.
The question of Mr. Obama’s divinity will be left to the discernment of the individual American. Remarkably little intellect is required to make that determination. Until fairly recent years that fact would not have been cause for concern. But assessing America’s judgment calls in the past two elections, one certainly has cause for concern and, yes, even frustration. The malignant power of ignorance was clearly demonstrated in the results of both those plebiscites. How else to explain the end result of a government ruled by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama?
No, in the opinion of this humble scribe, Mr. Obama is not divine. He is, I believe, a socialist. As his days in office increase more and more evidence of his socialism will increase, as well. Eventually, Mr. Obama’s socialism will become undeniable even by the sycophantic press.
The anomaly that is the Obama Presidency will cost America dearly. In fact, the bill has already, in part, come due - payable upon demand and demand has been made. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be paying those bills. Our economy is in shambles. The national unemployment figure is approaching ten percent. Our military is being pulled out of Iraq, which is already showing signs of a willingness to revert to another strongman dictator style government as soon as the last US troops lift off Iraqi soil. At the same time, US troops are being deployed into Afghanistan to fight a war that cannot be won with a people who cannot be governed.
As one stands back and looks objectively at the condition America finds herself in today, one could think of a number of ways to describe her leader. Divine is certainly not one of them.
