Obama’s Mind Game

Obama’s Mind Game

“We’re playing those mind games togetherPushing the barriers, Planting seeds Playing the mind guerrilla Chanting the mantra, peace on earth”
-John Lennon

It’s a chilling moment when the light goes out in someone’s eyes. A once-radiant child hardens from abuse. A woman’s heart shrinks after her husband’s abandonment.

The person looks the same, maybe acts the same. But something is gone, and what’s lost is irretrievable. It’s like when a person dies: in a heartbeat, the soul vanishes.

I witnessed this alteration recently when I visited my goddaughter, a radiant girl. Her mom, a hardcore progressive, has started exposing her to the darkest elements of the left. And the last time I looked in the girl’s eyes, the light had gone out. Disappeared. Just like that.

I see this phenomenon every day: a light dimming. The friendly shopkeeper snaps at me. My cheerful neighbor seems flattened.

And you hear it in the news: people acting strangely, going off the deep end. The most bizarre behavior becoming the new normal.

A thug bites off a finger. Sarah Palin’s church is torched. Bullies intimidate voters.

Last week, an esteemed Columbia University black architecture professor punched a white female coworker in the eye for not doing more about white privilege. He has no history of violence. So why now?

Why now? This may be the most important question of our time. Why are some people reaching the boiling point? Why do many others look vacant, like an Invasion of the Body Snatchers? The shootings at military bases, from Little Rock to Fort Hood — why now?

It’s Obama, of course.

Liberals will excoriate me for writing this. They’ll insist that bad behavior is not Obama’s fault. He’s a man of peace.

But study the phenomenon of cults, and the dynamics are always the same. The leader can incite violence without ever getting his hands dirty. Obama is controlling the marionette of the masses.

If Obamamania is a cult, then Obama is the cult leader. Cult leaders routinely pull the strings of their followers. The most extreme example is Charles Manson. He rots in prison for murders he never committed. He didn’t have to do the dirty work. His brainwashed charges did his bidding.

I’m not saying Obama is a Charles Manson. There are varying degrees of manipulation, from using sexy blondes to entice men to buy cars all the way to hypnotizing them to drink poisoned Kool Aid. But there’s a common denominator in all mind control: manipulating people through mind games.

As soon as Obama came on the scene, the programming began. His face was plastered everywhere like Mao. In his speeches, Obama lulled audiences with a melodious voice and feel-good phrases repeated over and over. And he began inciting people with his charming smile.

First, the vultures starting swooping down on Hillary. Obama chose not to call off the dogs.

Then thugs invaded caucuses. Again, silence.

Which led to vicious misogyny against Sarah Palin and threats on her life. From Obama: not a peep.

We even saw armed thugs at polling places. Ignored and not prosecuted by Obama’s Attorney General.

The moment Obama became president, he upped the signals. At the swearing in, the entire family eerily chose to wear black and red, colors associated with communism and black nationalism. Obama’s first radio address was broadcast in the Arab world.

Obama returned Britain’s gift of a Winston Churchill statue while embracing dictators. He gave a white police officer a dressing down for doing his job, in effect calling him a racist.

Obama’s greatest magic trick? Brainwashing the masses to believe that racism is a greater danger than radical Islam, and that Obama himself is in constant peril.

Opposing health care means you oppose Obama. Oppose Obama and you’re part of a vast right-wing racist conspiracy.

Thus, more and more people are finding themselves on the receiving end of a fist, figurative or literal. After the White House released a directive for his followers to strike back hard, a frail, diabetic black man at a Town Hall was beaten up.

Even women can get slugged in the face. Obama signaled during the primary that women were fair game.

Obama and the Left are making sure that there ia an increasing number of persuadable people. By displacing workers, panicking business owners with Draconian laws, and whipping up rage and paranoia, they amass more lackeys.

The American Hard Left knows how to create a cult because it is a cult, one with a violent history. The Black Panthers, Symbionese Liberation Army, Weathermen, Black Muslims — all nefarious cults.

Members of the Weathermen, for instance, had their spirits broken through forced wickedness, such as animal abuse. Patty Hearst morphed into bank robber Tania after weeks of isolation, rape, and beatings by the SLA. Huey P. Newton sent his Black Panthers to the hospital or to the grave if they didn’t practice total obedience.

So what’s the end game here?

The first goal is power. The Left has an insatiable need to control every aspect of our lives.

But there’s a deeper reason, one much more insidious.

The Left wants to tear Americans down. Just as the Weatherman did to those naïve lost kids, they want to break our spirits. This goal of degradation is more crucial than their one-world government.

The progressives want to turn us into them, to make us feel as deprived and depraved and deadened. It’s the only way that they can silence the roar of shame and self-loathing.

What they don’t understand is this: it’s not going to happen. There are too many of us who won’t be hypnotized.

We can see right through them. We know who they are: the most piteous of human beings, and the most dangerous. Men without a country, orphans far from home. The forsaken and disowned.

They’re “hungry ghosts,” to use a Tibetan phrase: tormented beings who are starving to death from their inner nothingness.

Mother Teresa was once asked how she coped with serving the poorest of the poor in Calcutta. She responded that what she saw in the cities of the United States was much more disturbing, because it was a “poverty of the spirit.”

Poverty of the spirit. No truer words can be spoken of the progressive Left.

    Obama is as much a man of peace as Mohammed was…

    Isn’t it interesting that the wonderful and brilliant constitutional lawyer made public statements that have already convicted KSM, knowing full well that he was tainting the jury pool and giving tremendous advantage to the defense attorneys.

    And, this on top of shoving this clearly military case into a civil court in NY (how’s that for shoving it in all our faces), where discovery will reveal national secrets , the defens will get to actually shift the focus on the previous administration and where the defendent will get to represent hismself and his cause.

    Gee, if you didn’t know better, you would think that OPIE wanted his philosophical brother to beat the case at the same time our noses are being stuck into “it”.

    When will the punishment of the EVIL AMERICANS, by our own president, cease?

    I find it ironic that our idiot president follows the teachings of Che Guevera, Fidel Castro, Mao, Saul Alinsky, Rev Wright, Bernadette Dohrn, William Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Tony Rezco, Frank Marshall Davis, Rashid Khalidi, Father Pfleger, George Soros and ACORN!!

    EVERY other President in the history of the USA followed the teachings of people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, John Adams, James Madison, John Calhoun, Thomas Paine, Daniel Webster, Patrick Henry and Abraham Lincoln.

    Sit back if you like and act as if everything that is happening to our country is okay. We are quickly becoming a socialist nation. We ALL have been quiet:

    When they took the 4th Amendment, I was quiet because I didn’t deal drugs.
    When they took the 6th Amendment, I was quiet because I am innocent.
    When they took the 2nd Amendment, I was quiet because I don’t own a gun.
    Now they have taken the 1st Amendment, and I can only be quiet.

    The time is now to act. Act now or be destined to a life of total government control of every single aspect of your life!! This is not Democratic or Republican….THIS IS AMERICAN!!!!!!!

  6. Patriot Says:

    That’s real good Greg you point to the very people that formented slavery in this country. Then you complain about the people that may have met President Obama sometime in his life. I met Ronald Reagan one time. That doesn’t make me a Conservative!!

  7. Wanderant Says:

    Oh Poor Patsy- you really do need an education. Slavery was imported into Colonial America by the Portuguese, Spaniards, French and English- your brothers in Socialist Solidarity. Slavery was born and still exists in AFRICA. Not only are Africans enslaved based upon their tribal affiliations and skin color (YES, darker skinned tribesman are enslaved most) but females are enslaved and brutalized beyond human comprehension- just for the fun of it. These are your ROOTS- deal with it.

    Now, back to our forefathers; they established the framework for the greatest, fairest and most benevolent (look that word up) nation on earth – past or present. The same nation that has contributed more financial aid to Africa than any other nation, ever.

    Obama has done NOTHING of benefit to society. He talks the talk, but can’t seem to walk the walk. After his ONE TERM presidency, he’ll write the third of his series of BORING (yawn) autobiographies, and go live where all the rich white people live. He used his radical leftist friends to gain the White House, he’ll lose them now (“under the bus they go”) so he can cozy up to the rich white lefties, (I’m guessing some place warm, coastal and very WHITE = ELITE) to which he truly relates.

    Your naivete on all Obama is astounding.
