Video of the Day: Obama Theme Song? – The Cult of Hussein-ality, er . . .Personality; Plus Other Videos of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
Reader “samurai” suggested that one of my favorite rock songs, Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality,” describes Obama. He’s right on target. Read the lyrics, below, from Lyrics Mania–it’s Barack Hussein Obama in a nutshell.
Love the vocals (by Corey Glover), guitar, and drums on the song. I work out to that song, and that of another of rock’s talented Black lead rock singers, LaJon Witherspoon of Sevendust, whose “Black” is below (the live video–which is one of the best live videos I’ve seen–the studio version which sounds better, the very cool unplugged version, and the great cover by the Disturbed and its awesome Israeli lead singer, David Draiman). I used to use that as bumper music for my Detroit-based then-radio show. I saw Sevendust in concert in Detroit and met LaJon and the gang–nice guys.

I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be

I’m the Cult of Personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Neon lights, A Nobel Price
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your T.V.
I’m the Cult of Personality
I exploit, you still you love me
I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the Cult of Personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I’m the Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Neon lights a Nobel Prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free
You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your God’s name
I’m every person you need to be
I’m the Cult of Personality

Debbie, your a head banger, who’d thought?

You made sure that all of us would listen to that music. I say that because….well…I never thought I’d see the day Debbie Schlussel would put any anime-related content on this site.

In reality, Barack Hussein’s meaning of “change” is Selfishness:
1 – First Black president.
2 – First Muslim president.
3 – First Black ‘first lady.’
To think otherwise is to be extremely naive.
“Change” in Hussein’s mind is:
1 – to take and waste your money on building African and other “poor” Islamic nations,(more than Bush is spending, by the way) i.e. to help his “Muslim brothers,” while 45 millions Americans can’t afford to have health insurance, while many veterans are homeless, while poverty is a stain on the face of the “richest country in the world,” etc., etc.
2 – on surrendering to Al-Qaeda and to the Muslim world supporters of terrorism, or as the Muslims call it “Jihad against the Great Satan,”
3 – on considerably reducing the Military and withdrawing before finishing the missions,
4 – on opening the borders and granting all current and future illegal aliens from the South and the North full residency and citizenship,
5 – on appointing many Muslims in the White House, the Cabinet and the courts to pass laws to accommodate the Muslims and the Sharia,
6 – on, of course, courting, sleeping with, and opening the White House to terrorists and their supporters (oops, Jihadists) like CAIR, Hizbollah, Hamas, Iran’s president, the Black Panthers, Soros, the Hollywood Idiots, the Nation of Islam, the ACLU and MoveOn.
7 – on openly declare himself a Muslim after being situated in the White House,
8 – on establishing a Mosque inside the White House for those Muslim employees and himself,
You get the picture. You think it will not happen? Wait and see.
And for those idiots who are fooled by empty words, and fascinated with empty suits, one word:
You are screwing yourselves and America.
Enjoy, morons!

So ‘Independent Conservative’ why do you hate America so much?
It’s obvious that you really don’t like America, so why don’t you move somewhere else?

No Pasaran! on February 21, 2008 at 2:47 pm

Independent Conservative: Just take ten minutes to educate yourself about Obama. Go to his website, learn where he stands on the issues, watch the debate tonight.
What on earth is the root of your ignorance?

Audacious on February 21, 2008 at 3:30 pm

Independant Conservative??? Man you give a whole new meaning to the word “misrepersentation”. This society has become so worse, that you can’t even call yourself something without some death buster (another anime reference!!) completely changing the definition of it to suit his/her own “feeeeeelings”.

As an aside, David Draiman is not Israeli.

Concerning Cult of Personality:
The western world so far has not been afflicted by CoP to such extent as the rest. Because CoP incorporates one necessary screw to hold all edifice together – the object of CoP shall be ALWAYS RIGHT. By the power of this thesis all human, imperfect, is shed off the object of veneration and remains only what is purely divine. It was not a case with Kennedy or Ghandy; in addition both fell victims of assasination, so – if divination took place in their fate, then only after their death.
Good example of CoP of Western Civilization, probably, is Hitler. Mussolini has never reached such glory. He is just dearly beloved by the majority if Italians, and the warm and tear-sucking books and broshures about him are sold on every corner.
In Russia the CoP of Stalin was based in part on two precedents – Ivan the Dreadful (correction to Terrible) and Peter the Great. But the CoP of Stalin is true CoP and its grandious range is far supercedes the dwarf CoP of Mussolini or even Hitler. Keep in mind, that Stalin was Grusin (Georgian; emphasis in “Grusin” is on the second syllable) and not Russian; he even has been born in Grusia (Georgia).
The Far East gave mankind three brilliant examples of CoP – one in colossal China and two in little N.Corea. The size of CoP is independent from the size of a host country.
In Africa we have many little known and virtually unknown examples of CoP in many countries, unworthy to talk about.
But we see several marvelos examples on Near East – among them – Saddam, and, may be, not the first, but certainly not the least – The Prophet (Rasul).
Why in USA there is no a very civilized institution of recall of the Pres in the midst of his term?
Since we have been flattened to just the routine two choices, we need to spare the best of the worst two that will pass to the final run from our most vitriolic critique. And, since McCain, however disgusting as all pretendents before and after him, is, at least, more reliable and predictable, let’s save this more or less benign handicap of intellect from the most piercing attacks and concentrate on the real enemy of Western World – you know which one of them. Of course, it’s a mere suggestion, nothing more.
One Frenchman – (Sorry, I don’t remember)
Two Frenchmen – Duel
Three Frenchmen – Revolution
One Englishman – (Sorry, I don’t remember)
Two Englishmen – (Sorry, I don’t remember)
Three Englishmen – (Sorry, I don’t remember)
One Russian – (Sorry, I don’t remember)
Two Russians – Brawl
Three Russians – Drink-on-three
One Jew – A shop
Two Jews – Int-l Chess Competition (Obsolete)
Three Jews – Symphony Orchestra
One Grusin (see explanation above) – Prince
Two Grusins – Cult Of Personality
Three Grusins – has never been, and God save us from being!

What on earth is the root of your ignorance?
Posted by: Audacious
Talking about idiocy. This is a perfect example of the result of brainwashing. Muhammad did it centuries ago, Hussein is doing it now. And people are so stupid to believe their lies because they say it so good, they are fooling people to get what they want.
In the case of that Muslim Hussein, can anyone tell me what did he DO to deserve to be president?
Can you name one accomplishment?? … (other than being a Black Muslim, which is why many -if not all- of you morons are rooting for him, because YOU LIKE TO THINK that you’re not racists…
“oh.. I’m an old White woman and I voted for a Black” as a voter was asked on FNC during one of the primaries).
No, but facing with a question like that, the morons and cheerleaders who are dancing up and down when seeing him, are mum.
People love empty suits, embellished by the liberal left-wing Media. The image is more important than the substance.
Where is America in all this?
Only Americans will destroy America, not Iran, not China, nor Russia.
We don’t learn from Europe’s mistakes.

All you AYDACIOUS libs out there keep trying to gloss over the fact that your fav guy has made gross miscalculations and horrible comments that betray his true rotted core as well as his wifes. He will continue to smile and inspire you morons that think the nation of islam is ok, who think that being hostile to large corps like oil and pharmacuticals is ok (they help us antibiotics and heart pills are good not bad). His masses will look the other way when his wife expresses whats REALLY IN HER HEART. Like the hatred for America she shares with Al Sharpton and Rasta Louie, and Al Quida. Mcain shouldpound Obama into a greasy spot on the debate stage if he takes his Gerital that day. D——ds like audacious can then go back to reading Jet and looking at the honey of he month sandwiched between 10 articles on how the conservatives should all be car jacked and left dead in the hood.

Thanks for the shout out Debbie, great minds think alike. I would’ve responded sooner but I was out exercising my 2nd amendment rights today. Then theres the cleaning afterwards. Stay strong.

The opposite is the case with the Obama team. Headed up by Jimmy Carter’s (“Israel is an apartheid state”) national security advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Obama’s team includes such problematic figures as Anthony Lake, Robert O. Malley and Susan Rice.
One commentator, citing an article by the staunchly left-wing Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, has noted that an Obama presidency including a foreign policy team that included the foregoing and their ideological soul-mates, “would likely have an approach towards Israel radically at odds with those of previous Presidents (both Republican and Democrat)” and is the candidate apt to be “least supportive” of Israel.

Obama supports Palestinian state cutting Israel in half
More controversially, Obama said he supported the division of Israel into at least two parts by a Palestinian state.
The stunning comment came as Obama struggled to articulate his stance on key Mideast issues in dispute. “The right of return [to Israel] is something that is not an option in a literal sense,” Obama said, but then went on to say that “The Palestinians have a legitimate concern that a state have a contiguous coherent mass that would allow the state to function effectively.”

The Speech Obama Never Gave
My fellow Americans,
The time has come for me to set the record straight. Failing to do this would just make things worse, and I think I owe it to the American people.
I am a Christian. In my early years I had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of my Indonesian step-father. Denying that would just be denying the truth. At the age of six I regularly attended services in his mosque.
Does this matter? It does because I am seeking to be the president of the greatest country on Earth. It matters where I come from, because where I come from affects where I stand today.
It would be years later that I read about Islam and understood what I had been reciting as a boy. As an American I realized that my values enshrined in the US Constitution are incompatible with certain tenets of Islam: the concept of jihad, the relationship of Muslims towards non-believers; and Islam’s attitude towards apostates.
