The Obama Cult--Continued

By David Aikman
Even before Election Day, the cult of personality surrounding Senator Barack Obama was, well, weird. Cute little kids sang songs in praise of Obama and a group of black teenagers in pseudo-military uniforms performed a sort of parade dance on video. Supposedly seasoned journalists started talking about experiencing a special thrill when hearing Obama speak.

But since the presidential election, this cult has gotten even worse. In Topeka, Kansas, there is a group trying to gather petitions for an Obama Day national holiday. On inauguration day the local McDonalds will be serving Obama cake.

On National Public Radio a Newsweek editor called such a personality cult "creepy" and "manipulative." It is. We elected a president, not a messiah--and not a fascist dictator.


  • you can define things as a cult when followers are religious about the following of said leader. Obama in many cases would qualify. The media and the liberal illuminati leaders are to blame for this and this cult will not be ending anytime soon.

  • Sadly, I fear you are right. And My other concern is that if Obama turns out to be a poor president, he is going to have so much leeway that his cult following will be blind to his failings and he could be elected to a second term despite his failures.

    I hope this does not turn out to be the case.
