The Lightness of Being Socialist

Folks, in honor of the candidate this post is slightly off the usual format.

Things are getting serious ... the trolls are out in force, doing their worst to change the voters' perception of reality so they will cast a ballot for The One ... an example:

... visit a Republican political gathering, camera in hand, shove a mic in their faces asking some expedient question - for example "Is Obama a terrorist?" ... keep soliciting and annoying the crap out of people until you meet one gullable specimen who'll fall into the trap ... then put the vid on YouTube with the title "the Republican mob is so shockingly ignorant, they don't even know the finer points of the creed" (the Messiah, as even the most base person knows, was immaculately conceived: any reference to a father just shows deep, infathomable ignorance) ... part I, part II ...

... alternatively - when the opposite effect is required, shutting them up - proceed as follows: bring accusations of racism (not necessarily justified, any epithet that can be explained as a pejorative will do - works 99% of the time), or enforce self-censorship by exerting political correctness.

As the venom is spreading and toxin levels are rising - not in the last place by the unprecedented smear campaign against Sarah Palin (that being of course 'truth to power'), the O campaign last night pressed upon the opponents to 'tone down a notch', implying The One is put in danger from "right-wing militia nuts". That can be categorized per above: enforce self-censorship by exerting political correctness.

Clearly it's time to maintain a sense of humor. Please do yourselves a favor: keep your sanity and tune in to The People's Cube! It'll keep things in perspective ... guaranteed. An example ...

"Diverse Obama Logos: To Each According To His Hyphen"

It is a matter of common knowledge that the old-fashioned idea of One Nation Undivided is incompatible with diversity and multiculturalism. For the same reason, the concept of One Obama Logo For All has been recently found at conflict with the presidential hopeful's philosophy of catering to each minority group with a different set of words and images. As a result, his campaign has unveiled a new collection of ethnically-specific Obama logos to match each minority's pre-approved role, legend, and grievances, in full compliance with the divide-and-conquer revolutionary doctrine developed by Antonio Gramsci and perfected by Saul Alinsky.

(btw our apologies for not being able to reproduce Obama blue - in spite of heroic efforts we just don't seem to be getting it right)

Here's Jon Voight on Glenn Beck, shining a light on The Method:

Glenn, really - "where does this platform of hate come from?" I'll tell you: in the words of Mr Icke, a hero who recently figured in "Mass Mind Control and Psychology" ... "(...) people who have a self-identity of being kind, loving and caring for others (...) is always a fake identity because no-one lives up to that all the time, and I mean no-one. (...) ‘It was you who made me react like that’ or ‘they deserved it’ are among the [regular methods of dealing with dissonance] (...) This filters reality to fit the self-identity and (...) why it was not their fault and not their responsibility. In short, they will protect the self-identity at all costs. (...) To overcome the negative effects of cognitive dissonance I would offer just one sentence: it's okay not to be 'perfect' and it's okay to be wrong (...) ... hear, hear!

... in a word, Glenn, it's projection! The Left cannot live up to their own superior moral standards, so what you do is project those failings on to your opponent. Watch this vid, in which some armchair psychologist is trying to make John McCain look like an angry, erratic geriatric in the perception of the audience (so glad the candidate really has the patience of an angel).

Regretfully the doc ground the diagnosis to mince-meat.

... bet you're feeling already uplifted? now to the really fun part of this edifying post, the musical intermezzo ... this one is COMPULSORY ...

The Cube: "Sing For Change: Children Compose Hymns To Obama"

Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when children, on their own will, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.

This music video embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. The willingness of all was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children. (...) >>>

Be sure to click through and scroll down for the important lyrics. Print out, learn by heart, and keep under your pillow, next to the red hankie. Time's up ... celebratory wrap up by Glenn ...

"O' Hail the Messiah Lord Obama"

Hail'O ...
