Ah, now they're getting it:
Ladies and Gentlemen, I beg of you to look at the photo above and think long and hard about what is happening to people's minds within the Democratic Party. This is not normal. This is not healthy. As someone with a lifetime of interest in the political process, I can assure you, this is NOT "politics as usual". These people are zombies. What you see in that picture is, clearly, the influence of cultish thinking - initiated by those behind this latest campaign. (It was provided, as an example of just that, on The Huffington Post, so don't act like I'm making this up.)
Anyone who reads this blog knows I have set out to prove, over and over again, that Hillary Clinton is a cultist. That she, and Bill Clinton, have been building a network of believers for some time - while hanging out with psychics, and other con men, like Ken Wilber and Tony Robbins.
I've told you that Barack Obama has been doing the same thing - and, now, people are starting to notice he's the only man running who can talk for an hour and say nothing. But, more importantly, his listeners don't ask anything more of him. (In a "political campaign". For the President of the United States. Strange, isn't it?) One Australian reporter has said, "I hear that too in the voices of Obama's staff constantly, themselves referring to this 'cult of Obama'." Obama's own staff. Convinced yet?
Obama's been working the meditation crowds, starting in Iowa, and letting that "spiritual" con woman, Oprah Winfrey, be a part of his campaign. And - here's a cultish thinking tip-off for you - few question anything Oprah says or does, like her endorsement of The Secret, or her recent backing of that troll-like schizophrenic author, Eckhart Tolle. Think about it: A grown woman, who fancies herself a journalist, continually falling madly in love with (and becoming determined to spread) ideas that any 5 year-old could see is bogus - and it's working so well people think of her as a moral leader - that is NOT normal, folks.
I have mentioned how the San Francisco Bay Area - a Democratic stronghold - is beset on all sides by cultism, not allowing any thought, but that dictated by cults, to be allowed. I have told you about sex cults, spiritual cults, the honoring of cults by political figures, and even murders committed by cults - all happening in broad daylight (including the murder) but, so far, the San Francisco Chronicle has run only one editorial that cults are as big a problem as I've said. It ended with these words:
"What have we learned to avoid a repeat?...There's a clear answer. Absolutely nothing."
You'd think, after Jim Jones killed 900 Bay Area residents, they'd be a bit more circumspect about this kind of stuff, but no. Now, all the local papers advertise this crap, even selling the idea of water as medicine in the Style and Living sections. They hire writers who are into it, too. How soon we forget just what kind of thinking got all those people killed.
Oh sure, we see cultism - and acknowledge it as such - when media stars, like Madonna or Tom Cruise - are doing it but, for some reason, there's a refusal to come to grips with political cults. (Lyndon Larouche, anyone?) Why? Because then they're the rubes. Not just the people, or the politicians, but the journalists too. After trying to talk to members of my local media, I have to say, that's the only way I can explain their reluctance to deal with this issue: They've become so open-minded their brains fell out.
Look at that picture again, Ladies and Gentlemen, and really "look" at it hard. Then, look at the links, and around this site, objectively, while putting the pieces together, and, I think, you can only reach one conclusion:
We have a very serious problem on our hands.
Have you noticed how hardcore Bush supporters talk about the president like he is infallible — the way the Moonies used to talk about Reverend Moon?ReplyDelete

This makes me wonder - is Bushism a cult?
Check out this list of defining characteristics of a cult from the International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) and decide for yourself :
* The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and … regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.
* Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.
* Mind-altering practices … are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).
* The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel…
* The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar - or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).
* The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.
* The leader is not accountable to any authorities…
* The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members’ participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group…
* The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.
* Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.
* The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.
* The group is preoccupied with making money.
* Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.
* Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.
* The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.

Bush says God chose him to lead his nationReplyDelete
"I want you to stand, raise your right hands," and recite "the Bush Pledge," said Florida state Sen. Ken Pruitt. The assembled mass of about 2,000 in this Treasure Coast town about an hour north of West Palm Beach dutifully rose, arms aloft, and repeated after Pruitt: "I care about freedom and liberty. I care about my family. I care about my country. Because I care, I promise to work hard to re-elect, re-elect George W. Bush as president of the United States."
“See in my line of work,” Bush told students in Rochester New York on May 24, 2005,“you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”
