Does it make anyone but myself find more than a bit disturbing and sickening that President Obama’s front-group, Organizing for America is not only having its membership swear Oaths Of Loyalty to Obama, but also swearing to spread the “good word” of Obama by going door-to-door, evangelizing President Obama’s manifesto?
I wonder, will they, like the Mormons and the Jehovah Witnesses, bring literature with them? If so, what will it be, one of Obama’s – not one, but two – autobiographies, Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, or possibly Marx’s and Engels’, Communist Manifesto?
I also wonder if this will be purely a grass-roots effort, or if ACORN, CAIR, MEChA, and other similar strong-arm groups will be involved, either openly or covertly.
While I’m sure there are those will who vituperously disagree with with me, I find this Pledge Prject of Organizing for America (formally Obama for America) to be both disturbingly cult-like and counter to many of the core principles of American society. We do not worship our elected officials and we do not swear oaths of loyalty to them; we swear oaths of loyalty only to America.
I do have one lingering question though; does this abominnation come from Obama or from those who have made him their Chosen One? Obama was a community organizer ala ACORN with all that it implies and was tutored in politics and manipulating the masses by the domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, so it’s quite possible – but it’s far from a certainty from what I’ve seen and read.
This vile and disturbing behavior could have arisen from his followers and not from Obama himself. I’ve often wondered if Obama created the phenomenom of his following, or if he just capitalized upon their blind faith and quasi-religious fervor. If the latter, I feel sorry for the President if they come to feel that he’s failed them.
