Barack Hussein Obama's Cult Following
Obama backers threaten post-election violence

President Obama’s supporters are threatening riots and violence should he be defeated in November. Mr. Obama is in deep trouble. He was trounced by his Republican rival, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, in the first presidential debate. Since then, Mr. Obama’s aura of invincibility — carefully cultivated by the establishment media — has been shattered. He has been exposed as an incompetent and arrogant socialist whose policies have failed to revive the economy. His angry second debate performance did not reverse his downward trajectory. His followers are now panicking. Some are demanding that blood flow in the streets should he lose the election. Hope and change have given way to rage and fury.
Last weekend, thousands of pro-Obama Twitter account users vowed to start a race war if Mr. Obama is not re-elected. Many pledged to burn down homes and shops. Laden with obscenities and racist language against whites, the tweets reveal the radical left’s anti-democratic, thuggish nature.
“If Obama don’t [sic] win lets [sic] start a riot so Romney know [sic] what he’s getting himself into,” wrote one. Another tweet stated: “If Romney wins im [sic] goin [sic] on a rampage.” There were countless such threats, most of them much more vile, graphic and chilling — not fit for publication in a newspaper.
After the second debate, there was an explosion of tweets calling for Mr. Romney to be killed if he wins in November. “Already planning my attack,” said one. “Somebody should assassinate Romney,” wrote another. Besides Fox News and the Drudge Report, however, major media outlets have refused to even mention the story. The reason is simple: It shows — in stark, irrefutable detail — the intolerance and hatred of many liberals.
Contrary to myth, revolutionary violence has been an intrinsic part of socialism’s march to power. Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez — together they have slaughtered tens of millions in the service of their ideology. In America, it has been predominantly the left and not the right that has engaged in heinous acts. Timothy McVeigh is the obvious exception. The Weather Underground, the Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, the Unabomber, eco-terrorists and the Occupy Wall Street movement, however, have championed violence to advance their anti-capitalist, anti-American agenda.
The establishment media’s hypocrisy is stunning. Imagine if the situation were reversed: Three weeks prior to the election, thousands of Romney supporters threatened to not only riot, but also assassinate the president should their candidate lose. The national uproar would be deafening. The New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, the Associated Press, along with Democratic media hacks such as Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Brian Williams, Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, Bob Schieffer, David Gregory and Wolf Blitzer (and many others) would be screaming for Mr. Romney and the GOP to disavow those comments. They would be right. Yet now, when it comes to threats against Mr. Romney, there is only silence.
Since the birth of the Tea Party, the liberal media have desperately sought to portray the movement as racist and extremist — a sanitized version of the Ku Klux Klan. Signs at Tea Party rallies comparing Mr. Obama to the Joker were denounced as menacing. Several placards stating that Mr. Obama’s big-government policies equaled the Soviet hammer and sickle were deemed incendiary.
Many liberals to this day — without a shred of evidence — continue to maintain the fiction that the n-word was spewed against black members of Congress at a rally just prior to the passage of Obamacare. For nearly four years, the press corps has peddled one overriding narrative: Opposition to Mr. Obama is based on white bigotry.
Hence, it should come as no surprise that by relentlessly injecting racial vitriol, Democrats and their media allies have sown the seeds of widespread fear and loathing among swaths of Obama supporters. Just recently, the Obama campaign’s co-chairman, actress Eva Longoria, made her brilliant case for the president. “I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Romney,” her tweet read. “You have to be stupid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic” individual.
According to the deranged left, Mr. Romney is the second coming of George Wallace.
Race-baiting also has been practiced by senior administration officials, including Mr. Obama. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. charges that voter identification laws are akin to “poll taxes” once used by Southern segregationists to deny blacks the right to vote.
Mr. Holder — reinforced by the Congressional Black Caucus — even claims that Republicans are engaged in systematic efforts at “voter suppression.” The president has fanned the flames of racial division by needlessly and prematurely passing judgment on the Trayvon Martin shooting case. He has referred to his critics as “enemies” who should be “punished.” In short, the administration has fractured America along racial, gender and class lines.
The results are predictable and ominous: Many of Mr. Obama’s supporters are seething with racial grievances. Riots after elections happen in Guatemala or Greece — not in America, where power is transferred peacefully. By refusing to denounce these threats of violence, Democratic leaders and the mainstream press corps are jeopardizing the very sinews of our republic.

7 Signs the Barack Obama Campaign Is a Cult
1. Supporters are asked to pledge their allegiance. Obama fans were asked to inscribe their hands with the reason they're standing with the president and then "put your hand over your heart for a quick smartphone photo."
2. College professors are administering actual loyalty oaths. A professor at Brevard Community College in Florida has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge that read, "I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket."
3. Every email carries celebrity validation. One more celebrity-laden photograph, tweet or email and Obama for America will be indistinguishable from the Church of Scientology.
4. Supporters faint at the Leader's appearance. Twenty Obama supporters required medical treatment in Roanoke, Virginia on July 13. Before there was any sign of a heat wave, there were three separate fainting spells at Obama rallies in March. As the Eternal Leader noted, "This happens to me all the time."
5. Supports change their names, or at least their Twitter handles, to Hussein Obama. At least if everyone becomes a "skinny kid with a funny name," we'll have found a way to solve the nation's obesity problem.
6. Obama tattoos are the season's hot fashion accessory.
7. The American flag is redesigned to feature an Obama logo. These colors run for office in a particularly obnoxious way..
Pledging to Obama 'For All'
September 21, 2012
There was a day when Barack Obama couldn't muster the energy or desire to lift his hand to cover his heart during the national anthem. Now, the Obama campaign is asking his supporters to do for him what he refused to do for America: place their hands over their hearts to pledge support for none other than President Obama.
The campaign is being called "For All," which is a take on Christian socialist Francis Bellamy's Pledge of Allegiance, "with liberty and justice for all." This newest Obama for America gimmick asks committed fans of the President to take photos of themselves with their hand over their hearts with notes scribbled on the exposed skin explaining why they are vowing loyalty to Obama.
Among those willing to send America a message are the usual suspects - twenty-something Hollywood starlets like Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Jessica Alba.
Jessica Alba, celebrated star of outstanding film classics like Knocked Up, The Love Guru, Sin City, and Meet the Fockers, is a self-described liberal feminist. In a 2006 interview with Elle magazine Jessica explained that she gave up her faith in the Catholic Church because she "vehemently disagreed with the church's condemnations of premarital sex and homosexuality." As for the Scripture, Jessica was "bothered by the lack of strong female role models in the Bible." Huh?
Anyway, Ms. Alba said, "I thought [the Bible] was a nice guide, but it certainly wasn't how I was going to live my life," which is why a radical liberal/Christian socialist-type politician like Barack Obama has transformed Jessica Alba into a shameless shill.
In an email blast to the President's supporters, Alba explained that her involvement with the "For All" campaign is analogous to how she felt about the Pledge of Allegiance as a schoolgirl. Jessica said that whenever she put her right hand over her heart and said the Pledge of Allegiance, the "gesture was a promise."
Wow, even as a youngster, every day when Alba pledged allegiance to the United States of America the political pipsqueak was making "A promise to be involved and engaged in this country's future. A promise to work for liberty and justice -- and for affordable education, health care, and equality -- for all."
All grown up, Jessica Alba, who gets paid millions to be eye candy in movies, is featured in a photo with one hand over her heart demanding "Equal Pay." Alba's other hand is clenched in a militant fist emblazoned with the words "Right to Choose."
Based on Ms. Alba's "For All" message, unless she's voting for Barack Obama to ensure abortion clinic workers get equal pay, someone should inform her that the President to whom she's pledging her allegiance pays his female staff approximately $11,000 less than his male staffers. And in case the mother of two is unaware, way back in 1973, Roe v. Wade gave her the right to abort her unborn children any time she wants.
It seems as though, except for those wearing a John McCain T-shirt, people like Jessica Alba truly believe Obama is "Not Just for Some of Us," he's "For All" of us.
Thespian Natalie Portman must agree, because she is also planning to cast a vote for the male feminist guardian of "Women's Rights." Adding to the chorus, under the flickering lights high up in what looked like an oxygen-deprived skybox at the DNC convention, glorified sex symbol Scarlett Johansson registered a pledge on behalf of "Cleaner Energy."
In the top right-hand corner of the official "For All" poster is a man who appears to be gaunt actor Don Cheadle. Lobbying for "A Voice," the poor guy looks like he lacks the energy to speak even if he wanted to. Maybe before pledging for "A Voice" he should muster the strength to speak with Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Coptic Christian brought in for questioning by the Los Angeles County sheriff's office at the behest of federal authorities for using his "voice" to make a low-budget anti-Muslim film entitled Innocence of Muslims.
In addition to famous Hollywood types, Obama campaign staffers are also posting photos of themselves taking the pledge. Unemployed and having loads of time to volunteer, youthful campaign workers are pledging for things like marriage equality, compassion, jobs, education, security, love, healthcare, a future, hope, opportunity, and success. Thus far, Obama has failed to deliver most of what's written on all of their idle hands.
Nonetheless, despite the absurdity of pledging anything to Barack Obama, let alone with the hope of receiving from him love and compassion, hope for the future, or personal success, "People...all across the country ... are proudly writing down ... reasons for getting involved, and then taking the pledge -- to vote."
That is why Barack Obama spokes-actress Jessica Alba is busy reminding pledgers to "Make sure you're ready to vote this fall. Putting your hand over your heart is making a promise. Casting your ballot is keeping it."
In the end, glamorous Hollywood ingénues aside, encouraging voters to make a promise and then asking them to keep it is an appalling request coming from a man who has made beaucoup promises and kept none; who pledges nothing to anyone; and whose vision, if reelected, is to move "Forward" the nation's misery- not just for some, but "For all."
At the lunch after the seventh November (1937) parade, held as usual at Voroshilov’s flat and attended by the magnates, including Yezhov, Khrushchev, and Redens, Mikoyan played the toastmaster, proposing “witty toasts for everyone in turn.” Then “once more (a toast) to the great Stalin,” who then stood up to explain the Terror: anyone who dared to weaken the power of the Soviet State “in their thoughts, yes even their thoughts” would be considered an Enemy and “we will destroy them as a clan.” Then he actually toasted the massacre: “To the complete destruction of all Enemies, them and their kin!” at which the magnates gave “approving exclamations: To the great Stalin!” These might have been the words of a medieval Caucasian chieftain, “a brilliant politician of the Italian Renaissance” or Ivan. He explained that he, no great orator and an unimpressive fellow, had succeeded the “eagle” Lenin because that was justifying the trust of the masses. Thus, Stalin went on to explain, this was truly a holy terror that stemmed from Bolshevism’s Messianic nature. Stalin, the court of the red Tsar, page 254.
