    My Obama Cult thread was closed before I could make my point.

    Unless we take it that seriously, we will lose. I bought a set of documentaries for home school, and the units dealing with Hitler's rise to power could have taken their material from the 2008 campaign. It was uncanny.

    Going from memory to name a few.
    • The economic situation
    • The messages, (The narrator emphasized that Hitler's speeches were vague and simply made promises of hope for the nation.)
    • The civilian security force
    • The cultic loyalty of his followers

    I agree that the support for Obama stands in direct contrast to the lack of support for his predessor. Is that bad in a country that freely elects its leaders? If so, why?

    Yes!!! When the electors of this nation start to referring to it's leaders as God then it is time to become very watchful and ready to inform.


    Do you support such devotion? If so, Why?

    I see a lot more anti-Obama people referring to our president as "messiah" and such like than I do pro-Obama people.

    The "messiah" debate has its roots in the liberal media, not in the "anti-Obama" crowd.

    Accorind to my recollection, the only people on this board who have referred to Barack Obama as "messiah" are those who are anti-Obama.

    This freak came to mind when I read JustC post as well. Surely JustC is not in this category? Are you JustC?

    I watched the man make that statement. The man was not referring to President Obama as God in that statement. It is dishonest for anyone to say that he was. Apparently, the Obama haters are losing their ability to even reason.

    [May want to reread: I had to edit to tighten up some cumbersome wording.]

    I watched the unit on Hitler's rise to power again, and took some notes. The documentary is called March to Victory: Road to Berlin.

    Describing his first political campaign strategy. The authors called it a "modern whirlwind campaign:"

    1)Speeches focused on encouragement with "heaps of vague promises."
    2)Huge propaganda effort
    3)Appearances were carefully staged, theatrical and with grandiose entrances and much pomp
    4)Crowds were a "wide-eyed, frenzied, screaming mass that surrendered to his will and looked upon him with pseudo-religous admiration."
    5)He offered something to everyone
    • National pride restored
    • Work to the unemployed
    • Prosperity
    • Social Harmony
    • End to class distinction (fairness)
    His campaign didn't win him the election, but it won the virtually unknown National Socialist German Workers Party (NAZI) 107 seats in the Reichstat, and made them the 2nd largest party in the nation.

    Prior to this, to rise to the position of the supreme leader (fuhrer) of, and to build support for the NAZI party, he created youth organizations much like the BSA, all busy doing community and national service. And to preserve his positition, he organized a staff guard (S.S.) responsible directly to him. (Apparently, as head of a party he could do this.) Compare this to Obama's "call to serve" http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=54994 , and his stated desire for a civilian security force equal to the military and responsible directly to himself, http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=54550 .

    Then the market crash of 1929 hit. Things got tough everywhere, and the Socialists seized their moment. Under tremendous pressure from the public, Paul von Hindenberg appointed Adolph Hitler as Germany's Chancellor in January 30, 1933. His reception was described as follows:
    The rest is history. Things to watch for:
    • The systematic intimidation of businesses and other organizations that don't buy into The Great Sellout (my term for the Bailout)
    • A revision of the oath of allegiance required of the military
    • Measures taken to solidify the power of the party and increase its scope and power (Bailout, Census grab, elimination of the term limit on the President)
    • Bold usurpations of his authority
    • Shows of placating political opponents in a front to get them to yield ground.

    It's done to mock the cultic mindset of his followers, a mindset obvious to the most casual observer.

    It was obvious in the video that he was not referring to Obama as God - he looked heavenward and thanked God for the chance to talk to Obama.

    Drama? - Yes
    Over the top? - I think so
    But calling Obama God? - It didn't happen

    I do appreciate seeing the seeming parallels between Obama and Hitler. Along with that we might add the unhidden disregard for the Jews and the unhidden disregard for the unborn - both reflect a view of the cheapness of human life.

    I agree!

    Another parallel between Germany of the 1920s and 30s and now - a revival of Paganism.

    Re cheapness of life: Before the camps in Germany, Germany had already started euthanizing older sick people, then deformed children, and then real sick people. This started in the 20s, I believe, even before Hitler came to power. A revival of Germany's "original" religions (Pagan gods) was going on.

    So with this euthansia alread in place, it was not a big step to dehumanize the Jews and others and put them in camps or to kill them. By that point, the country was desensitized.
