Is Election 2012 Mission: Impossible? Can We Penetrate the Cult of Obama?

06 May

I psyched myself up to travel down to Richmond’s Siegel Center at VCU yesterday to confront and challenge those who were queued up to see the nonstop Campaigner-In-Chief’s OFFICIAL ‘campaign kickoff’ yesterday. Nevermind that Obama used Karl Marx’s Birthday to officially kickoff the campaign that never really stopped since about 2008, but whatever. He was coming to Richmond to do it.

The night before I fantastized about having a Breitbart moment, or a James O’Keefe momemt, or a Jason Mattera moment, video in hand.

I headed down there, to ask people in line about Solyndra, the fact that Guantanamo was still open, Operation Fast and Furious, the drilling and pipeline bans, etc. I wanted to confront the true believers with the fact that the unemployment rate, gas prices, number of food stamp recipients, and those who have filed for Social Security disability have all doubled on Obama’s watch. The gas prices and unemployment should be obvious to all.

But I quickly realized that being confrontational in a scene where I would be outnumbered 5,000 to 1 might be ill advised. I also realized that these were the very people who were the recipients of those unemployment checks, food stamps and disability checks.

This crowd was mostly bought and paid for.

When I immersed myself into the crowd I decided to take on a conversational tone as a means of informing myself and making sure I wasn’t hauled off on a stretcher.

The first woman in line, a nice black lady in her mid fifties, I’d guess, had arrived at 8:35 for a speech that wasn’t scheduled for another 8 to 10 hours later.

She was wearing the Obama shirt. She had the buttons. She loved herself some Obama. Four More Years!!

I asked her what Obama had done that caused her to support him. “…so much of everything.”, she replied. Quickly followed by “at least I still got my job. So many people out here ain’t got no job.”

I could have pressed her by why there were so many unemployed or what ‘so much of everything’ meant, exactly. But I realized she was simply clueless.

Obviously this woman doesn’t make the connection with the poor economy and Obama’s policies. There was no association in her mind that it was because of Obama that her friends and family were in such dire straits.

He is black. That’s probably 90% of her love for the man and that’s about as far as it goes for her. That and the government largesse that her friends and family receive from Daddy Sawbucks.

I could have gotten in her grille, pointing out that the poor economy and bad employment prospects was due to her hero, then recited the facts to her, that Obama has shrunk the work roles back to the level of the early 80s, that it was Obama and his policies that did that. But what good would it have done? It wouldn’t have won her over.

She is a cultist.

This is the challenge for 2012.  We’re not running against a president or his policies.  We’re running against a cult.

So many of Obama’s suporters have been devastated by Obamanomics, but they are cultists and don’t recognize that their hero is actually their enemy. Some are more immersed in the cult than others. But they’re cultists, just the same. It takes time and a certain psychological acumen to free cultists from their swengali.

I don’t profess to know how it’s done. Maybe we need to bring in some experts on this. Guys that dealt with the Jim Jones or Heaven’s Gate cults are better prepared to help the country that old fashioned political consultants.  Out?  Karl Rove and Dick Morris.  In?  The Mentalist.

In the meantime Obama and the Democrats shrewdly throw shiny flack before conservatives, parading one extremist like Sandra Fluke, Jehmu Greene, EPA Administrator Al Armendariz, Massachusetts Senate candidate ‘Cherokee’ Elizabeth Warren and even Attorney General Eric Holder’s rope-a-dope act for us to react to, drawing our attention away from the prize and allowing us to celebrate minor takedowns of bit players. We convince ourselves that the nation as a whole is witnessing this bizarre force of bad actors destroying the nation, all of whom have direct ties to Obama, assuring ourselves that the entire country is horrified by all of the things we see.

Yeah. Just like the Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers direct ties prevented the Obama presidency in the first place.

We’ve got our heads up our asses on this.

The people I saw at that Obama rally aren’t witnessing the same news we are or sharing the same dialogue that we are. They’re just not. They’re not aware of the same things we are.

In the meantime, people like this little black lady I spoke with at the Obama rally are completely unaware that Obama is their new master, accelerating their decent into slavery and poverty. And these thousands of people that I witnessed were happily marching (and in some cases, dancing) in lock step onto big government’s plantation.

If we conservatives can’t develop an effective strategy to penetrate this community with an effective strategy to help these people understand that they’ve been hoodwinked and hyped by November…..we’re doomed.

Somehow we conservatives have got to stop talking to one another and start being effective ambassadors for the cause of opportunity, individual freedom, success and the hope of the American Dream.

Obama is busy telling the people that the American Dream is a myth, even though this half Kenyan bastard child of a Marxist couple has lived the limo life American Dream.  Tricking the American people and seizing the reigns of power in the greatest country the world had ever witnessed for the last 3 plus years.

In order to destroy it.

Somehow the cult must be destroyed.

    “the people I saw at that Obama rally aren’t witnessing the same news we are or sharing the same dialogue that we are. They’re just not. They’re not aware of the same things we are.”

    Bingo! About half my extended family are Democrats and even the more intelligent ones are woefully uninformed, misinformed, or, under-informed because they either don’t pay attention to national news, or if they do it’s the liberal media. The largest bias in the media is what they choose NOT to report. I can tell you from experience that trying to open peoples eyes is very difficult. It has to done as Rush often says, as if they arrived at the conclusion all by themselves. My successes are very few, but I’ll never give up.

      And that is the challenge. How do you get people to arrive upon the logical conclusion without alienating them and shutting down the process?

      We’re up against a well orchestrated media assault of omission, for the most part. Walk up to a stranger and tell them you’re concerned about the cover up associated with Fast and Furious. They’ll think you’re talking about the illegal racing movie. They won’t have any idea that you’re talking about a government program to give illegal weapons to Mexican drug cartels so as to engineer the suspension of second amendment rights, and if a few people get killed, even border agents, what the hell.

      Why? Because NBC, for one, has reported on Fast and Furious………………..never.

      That’s just an example.

        What I try to do is ask them questions instead of lecture, that way as they answer each question the truth starts to float to the top. Of course this only works on moderate and conservative Democrats, I don’t waste my time with progs.

    “I could have pressed her by why there were so many unemployed or what ‘so much of everything’ meant, exactly. But I realized she was simply clueless.”

    Oh, Mr. Saddleburr, I am just glad you were there at all. In light of my recent post, I have to add: yes, you could have pressed. On what exactly, it doesn’t even matter. But press! Because when you do, they quickly run out of words. This loss of words is quite telling in itself.

    Keep in mind, my advice is “do as I say, not as I do,” for I am terrible with cold confrontation. And I haven’t carried my flip since the code red rally in ’09. So mostly, I just thank you for being there, and giving us a report from the front line.

    You’ll never convince anyone with that attitude. First you must walk in the other person’s shoes to experience what they are experiencing. Maybe then you can have a conversation and START to understand each other. Until then, you’re just preaching to the choir.

    The Obamanistas have drunk the koolaid. You can not reason with them.

    Are you not aware of the fact more whites are on welfare and such than blacks?

    • P. Henry Saddleburr

      May 24, 2012 at 5:26 pm

      Yes I’m aware of that. What’s your point? They’re still cultists, many of whom are bought and paid for.

        huh. I do a double-take when I see “noone” as the name, but I’m sure you know that’s not me. ha. (black, white, red and purple, matters not unless you are a leftist with nothing else to hang your argument on.
